Do you want to guess what happens to me when I have too much coffee? Yup… wired and jittery until it wears off. I used to be able to live off continual coffee, with sides of cola etc. Not any more. There’s nothing worse than getting to the end of the day, tired and ready to sleep, but too wired to actually fall asleep until around 3am! Mr D hates it too. I disturb him with my continual wriggling in an effort to get comfy.
The type of wiring he does like me to take care of is the spaghetti that links the TV to the satellite receiver, DVD player and X-Box. I am a self-confessed labeller. I label each cable, taking photos of everything in situ before we move stuff. Once the kit is relocated, all I have to do is refer to my images and labelled wiring and before you know it, I have the whole system set up and working (yes working first time) without losing patience and calling in an expert. The Dean family laugh at me for being so fussy but I know how much of a lather everyone would be in if the TV system went on the blink after being moved. Let them call it fussy. I call it self-preservation!
And to finish off this short SoCS post, my all-time favourite Glen Campbell track, Wichita Lineman. Look out for the line – “I hear you singing in the wires…”
As usual, my thanks go to Linda G Hill for hosting this weekend prompt. Please visit her site for the low-down on taking part. Go on, you know you want to!
