1) Receiving a fridge magnet in the post from a teabag manufacturer
Tea, Monkey, and a magnetic shed: what's not to love?
2) Discovering a fab use for a spare hunk of railway line:
(Please don't ask how I came by said hunk of railway line. Suffice to say it was legal, and involved negotiation with an official rail-works employee. But I really don't want to start telling you about the re-laying of the railway line that runs past my flat. Or how it's taking place over one solid 100-hour shift, day and night. Because it wasn't too bad to start with. But today they have been angle-grinding track pieces (noisy), and dragging them along the line (ear-piercingly squealy), and using a sleeper-laying device complete with extra-loud horn for the announcement of its every move (noisy and squealy and irritating). So I'm not got going to tell you about any of that. Because I might cry. Instead I will concentrate on stuffing cotton wool in my ears and looking forward to sleeping at the weekend.)
And those really are the best bits of the week so far. I know what you're thinking: my life is sooooo exciting, right? Uh-huh. You betcha. Please don't be too envious :o)
