Hello to all my Livejournal friends. I would just like to know if others are suffering the same problem that I am; not getting notifications when a friend posts to their own journal. I have not had an email notification for a few days, and yet when I go to my friends page, there are plenty of updates for me to read. Not only am I not getting email notifications, but I am not getting the messages in my LJ inbox.
I have checked my account settings and they are showing as notifications will be sent but nothing is coming through. Anyone else having this problem?
Just found out what play my am dram group will be producing early next year. It was to be a toss up between two Pratchetts, and the winner is....
Now just got to bagsy myself a role...
Had an email about my corset! Apparently it's very nearly ready and some photos of the finished product will come this week. Sq-UEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
The only downside to this is the fact that I have yet to pay my corsetier! Oh well ;-)
So, today I got my arse in gear and got my bike down to the shop to get the handlebars sorted out following my accident last week. I was worried that it was going to be expensive and that I would have to confront the silly bint who knocked me off to get my money back but the lovely young man (lovely cos he helped me out) in the shop just got out an allen key, loosened the handlebars up, moved the bent bit, which turned out to just be an attachment to the main handlebar and not a fully integrated part, tightened it back up and that was it; one fully functioning bike within 2 minutes! Sweet!
And he didn't charge me for his time. I love that shop so much! I did spend some money there, however, as I wanted to play it safe and get a new helmet after walloping it on the road.
I hurt in new places, *sigh*.
Right, back pedal (ha! If only I could have done). Monday morning, cycling to work, got knocked off my bike by a numpty turning left across me. Cue my hurling over the front of her car onto the road, although thankfully neither of us were going fast. Landed on my left side so have a few grazes and lots of bruising, but no head injury as I was wearing a helmet.
However, a couple of days on and although the pain in my arm and hip has gone, the bruise on my thigh is growing (my goodness, but it's a wonderful shade of purple!) and now the bottom of my rib cage is starting to feel tender on both sides. Maybe I hit the handlebars as I went over, who knows? All I do know is that having a road traffic accident (as I am officially logged with the police) is not a good way to get a couple of days off work.
And yes, I apologise to anyone who is worrying about me (especially my mother!)
Ha ha! I am brilliant, and do not need a man!
Right, let me clarify that before I get into trouble.
I had a puncture in my rear tyre on my bike and last night I fixed it, all by myself, for the first time. Now I know that it shouldn't be that difficult but I've always had trouble getting the tyre back onto the wheel but last night I managed it, hoorah!
Obviously, I still need a man for some things; like reaching a very high shelf ;-)
