I built my first ever bird table in Eastbourne today! It was great fun. Strictly speaking, I have to say it was more a refurbishment. The post, and remnants of the old table were already there. It didn't stop it being any less fun. Most people know that over one third of our lives are spent at work. What we do for work in life should be fun. If it ain't fun don't do it. Unless you want to spend a third of your life being miserable. But, if you want some fun, do something you enjoy like build a bird table.

My first call of the day had been to a block of retirement flats (that narrows it down to half of Eastbourne). It was a simple job. The lady had a bun in the oven, but no heat. To be more specific, she'd had a power cut, and now her kitchen oven wouldn't heat up. The oven was an old AEG from 1987, and still going strong. Why do designers make so many appliances that function only after you set the clock. Can someone please explain - I can't think of one good reason to do it. When you buy a cooker or a microwave you want to cook or microwave. If you want to tell the time you buy a clock. Why does it have to be so complicated? To set the clock, even I had to refer to the instruction manual (Yes, she still had it from 1987, along with the original colour brochures, and the invoice, and delivery note!!!!!!). The whole process took about 20 minutes, a nice cup of tea, a friendly natter, and I was on my way. Life's too short to be miserable.
