Dolmio, July 2007

Painter man arrives to, er, paint the hall. Wifey glances up at ugly bunch of wires above front door, decides they're no longer needed, and asks painter man to rip them out, which he does. Then checks phone: oops, no dial tone, no broadband, nada. Visions of (a) waiting ages for BT to pay a visit and (b) handing over wad of cash to make good. Luckily, work colleague is ex-telephone engineer and advises to reconnect external orange and white through to internal blue and white. Much fiddly wire stripping ensues and Bob's my uncle, bringing us last month's Dolmio (Doings Of Last Month Innoparticular Order).

That is to say, an attempt to capture past(a) events before they slip... my... mind. July 2007 was spent:

  • carting Middler back & forth for her Seckford theatre show
  • smiling in wonderment at the shiny items emerging from the new dishwasher
  • gazing at the goggle box:
    • sweaty palmed "Let's Roll" United 93
    • surprisingly funny Talledega Nights
    • super sweary Thick Of It special
    • marvellous majestic Rome
    • addictive Heroes finally comes to BBC2
  • becoming mildly obsessed with TMBG's Museum Of Idiots
  • playing squash for the first time in yonks
  • spending a bizarre evening at the Ip-art writers' cafe at Starbucks
  • trying and failing to cool The Boy after overheating at Jan's Madhouse

And that was July 2007.
