I can’t remember the last cold call I received during the day where I came from the call happy. I’m registered with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) although this doesn’t seem to stop the endless stream of calls to help me claim PPI, damages from no-fault insurance claims, home improvements, etc. To be honest, the call in question was probably best described as a ‘warm’ call, as it was from Virgin Media and even though I didn’t ask them to call, I have been a customer for several years.

What a wonderful surprise! A good friend messaged me earlier in the week to check my address and let me know he was posting something up to me. It arrived this morning and was a bottle of Dalwhinnie 15-Year-Old Whisky. Do surprises get any better? I’ll let you know once I’ve had a dram this evening….
Another to add to my current whisky collection, which I blogged about here.
After my last post, I realised the next one would be my 50th, so thought I’d commemorate it with its own dedicated post!
After getting to grips with Alexa (well kind of) I thought I’d ramp up the home automation and get a Harmony remote to consolidate all my other remotes and allow for some further voice activation.
That’s right, there’s no ‘e’, or at least not in the country who invented the stuff!
I’ve always liked the idea of drinking whisky, but only since moving to Scotland have really begun to appreciate it as it really should be. And I think it’s fair to say my taste in whisky has also matured, moving a little further afield than the classic, yet easy to drink Speyside’s to slightly more acquired Highland and Island drams. That’s not to say I don’t still like a nice Speyside, just that they’re will be more than a bottle of 2 of other stuff in my drinks cupboard, at least over the festive period.
The Star Wars Lego Advent Calendar – it’s become a bit of a Christmas tradition! Even though next year I’ll be closer to 50 than 40!!
I think this is my 5th or even 6th calendar, and my daughter is now joining in with her own Lego Friends version.
I thought I’d share this year’s creations, ranging from a very small but scarily accurate Slave 1 (Boba Fett’s ship for those that might not know, but want to learn!) on the 1st, to a downright bizarre (so much so, that I don’t really know what it is) on the 20th.
A nice reminder for me when it’s packed away in the garage with the others, and for you if you happen to stumble upon my ‘blog to self’. If you do, Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2017…
