Set The Fire To The Third Bar

It's almost a year since I bought Martha Wainwright's first album... I heard this song Set Fire To The Third Bar just now (Snow Patrol feat. MW). Not sure if I like it yet... Just listening to it now!

You can listen to it here.

a day out

Woohoo, I've finally worked out how to get an image from my phone to my computer. How clever is Bluetooth??! To be honest I don't really get it- how is it different from sending an email or a text? Apart from being free?

This is a picture from last weekend in the Peaks (at Lady Bower Reservoir). It was actually a bright, sunny day, although you wouldn't believe it from the picture. It was good to be outside, away from my little desk, my planner and freakish housemate!

big rant

I feel like having a big rant about a certain person that I live with. I've already had several moans to other people. I've been so looking forward to today - a day off - but because of this particular person I'm in a very bad mood. Who does she think she is giving orders to clean things that don't even need cleaning?! Like the oven, for example. Which normal person cleans the oven? Maybe people do once a year or so... All this apparently is because our landlord is visiting next week. It's not even dirty, neither is the fridge, nor the tiles in the kitchen. It's not like it's an inspection! What's he gonna do if there's a speck of dirt? Chuck us all out on the street? As for the heating it's a joke. There's not even been a frost yet but still the house is heated to what feels like 30 degrees and we have to keep it on because this woman says it gets cold in the living room. And who decided that we keep the heating on till 10 at night anyway? Not me. The house isn't cold enough to have it on for so long. And then I got a note this morning asking me to mow the lawn. It's WINTER for god's sake - NOBODY mows the lawn in WINTER. Not like it's going to grow any more really is it? And how dare she leave me a note asking me to do that?? This is my DAY OFF that I've been looking forward to for weeks and weeks and she just wants to ruin it all by getting me to do stuff for the bloody sake of it. Well, I've cleaned the inside of the windows today. Apparently this is a job that needs doing. Yeah right. I can't stand this obsession with hyper-cleanliness. She's just WEIRD. I swear it's so impossible to relax here. So I'm looking for somewhere else to live.. Then she can boss the next person around with her orders. (Bet they don't hang around long either.)

And she doesn't even own the house!! She's just a tenant too like me! I want to make a big horrible mess in the kitchen and leave it for a week and then see what she does. Grr, she's driving me mad.
