  1. 45, 401 - Chilled out afternoon counting. Another nursery school class came into the library today for a story-telling session. And tidied up after themselves Now if we could just get the *big* kids into the same good habits...
  2. We could do with some of that sunshine over here @Manohlive - we've got a second round of flooding at the moment in towns that have barely had time to clear up from last week's floods
  3. 45, 395 - Just some basic shop's own-brand ones that I got from Asda. They're also nice and light-weight. Large, heavy headphones hurt my ears.
  4. I have new headphones - and they've passed the "Does Streets sound epic?" test I had to get them to replace another pair where the cable had got so twisted, the outer cover had cracked and exposed the actual wire Then the pair I bought on Friday had a component loose in the right ear which meant the sound wasn't working in that ear. But we took that pair back this morning, swapped them and the new ones are fine. So I can carry on rocking
  5. 45, 393 - Adding another number while I dance in my chair - the new headphones are sounding good
  6. 45, 388 - I watched the final episode last night. So good. I'm going to have to buy it on disc.
  7. 45, 386 - Evening counting as Spotify shuffles round to my favourite piece of Star Wars soundtrackage "Duel of the Fates". I feel an urgent need to grab a ruler and start acting out the lightsabre duel from this scene (Also, is it sad that I know the words and can sing this even though it's in Sanskrit?)
  8. 45, 385 - Lunchtime counting while I start my next library book. I'm very glad I don't live near a river right now. Whole chunks of the county are underwater and some of the flood defence systems are struggling to cope. I don't think I've ever seen it this bad before.
  9. My good thing for today is that I got the loan extended on one of my library books even though I've had all 3 of the renewals that are normally allowed. Said book was due back today, but getting it to one of the specified libraries is impossible. Travel in many parts of Shropshire is being massively affected by flooding Anyone wanting to go to Shrewsbury at the moment should travel in a boat rather than attempting it by car Thank goodness for all of the emergency services, volunteers etc helping to evacuate people and keep them safe.
  10. Sad news to wake up to this morning. Rest in Peace Harry Gregg. Former Manchester United and Northern Ireland goalkeeper and one of the survivors of the Munich air disaster. He managed to rescue several people from the wreckage, including some of his team-mates. He achieved a lot on the field, but will forever be remembered for his bravery that day. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51400376
  11. I never watched any of her programmes, but it's horrible how the tabloids do that - pick someone and just constantly bully them without any thought for the impact that the lies and negativity have on that particular person. I also find it sickening how the same media people/outlets who wrote/published the bullying articles are now gushing about how tragic her death is. Do they not stop to think that they played a part in causing it??? Every tabloid journalist in this country needs to take a long, hard look at themselves in the bathroom mirror tonight.
  12. 45, 384 - Counting on a horrible, rainy morning.
  13. 45, 382 - Sneaking another number in just before dinner. And awarding myself my annual Valentine's gift of renewing my fan club subscription
  14. 45, 380 - To be fair, my Dad doesn't complain very often about my music. If he dislikes something so badly, he can always press the 'OFF' button He *does* like U2, so that's the important thing
