  1. Tuesday 22nd Sept 7 - 9 am Oz Ballet Cinderella, as far as I can see.
  2. No problem with us - Sky Arts is on Channel 11 where it should be and the TV guide shows the programmes so we can set to record as usual. Hope you can get this sorted - it's a nuisance since the dance programmes all seem to be early in the morning.
  3. Well at last! I have now rescheduled our recordings for the second time after a successful retuning. I've set to record Australian Ballet on Tuesday 22nd 7am - 9 am (for anyone who has missed it) as a trial. fingers crossed. Apart from that I haven't seen anything of interest. And I hope Alison's right, that Rhapsody and 2 pigeons will reappear some time.
  4. We've had the same disappointing experience - and managed to clear our recording schedule!
  5. My goodness - that puts my little spat with Corgi Homeplan in its place! What an awful set of problems. It's the time, effort and stress trying to deal with it all that's the worst part. My sympathies.
  6. Update. To my surprise and delight a gas engineer came and serviced our boiler yesterday, on time, just as promised. Not only that, we had a call from Corgi Homeplan to check that he had turned up, and an email feedback request. Late in the day, but all very welcome.

Last year it took place in May. This year in early July the boiler switched itself off. Bruce went through a rigmarole of trouble-shooting and got it going again. I started ringing Corgi to request a service. Here we are two months and numerous phone calls later - still no service. Each time I ring I'm told an engineer will contact me within 24/48 hours. Never happened. To rub salt into the wound Corgi emailed me
  8. As a vegetarian I find neighbours' barbecues just as bad!
  9. Vets - and not for the first time. I recently had my cat's blood and urine tested because of excessive drinking and weight loss. Because the results revealed nothing untoward, I was persuaded to agree to a heart scan and blood pressure measurement because of an existing heart murmur. Well I claimed on the insurance for the first set of investigations but the vet has seen fit to link the two sets of investigations together for insurance purposes under the general heading of "heart murmur". Needless to say anything connected to heart murmur is excluded from our insurance policy because it wa
  10. Yes, a whippet bitch called Bluebell. She's described as "blue with white trim" which rather makes her sound like a Ford Anglia. She's four months old and is now allowed out in public, showing a keen interest in anything that moves at more than snail speed - cue lots of recall training! Bruce is brave enough to take her and Freddie out together, Freddie off the lead.
  11. I'm not a cricket fan but really enjoyed reading this. Thanks, Janet!
  12. Sparkling wit as well as wonderful photography!
