8:00 a.m. Temperature has dropped noticeably. Another day at home with Alexander. As you may be, may not be aware, Alexander has no daycare for a week because it was closed as a safety precaution. Last Tuesday several children were suck due to a virus. Being a government run facility It was closed immediately. We were worried when Alexander became sick that he had contracted the virus. But thankfully he’d just got a bad flu strain and not this other thing. So anyway he’s at home gor a week.
10:00 a.m. Went to bank to pick up Western union payment for electronics sold and a gift from mum for Christmas. Thank You!
10:30 a.m. Bank refused to pay. Said the name was wrong. Needed to call the sender and resend. I said “No way”. Got very mad and demanded the manager. They gave me phone number instead which I wrote on the back of form they wouldn’t process. Took it and left.
10:45a.m. Went to same bank, different branch about 1k down the road. Got the Western Union payment without trouble. What the hell? I checked the printout that I had grabbed from the first bank and wondered what they ment by wrong name. How could my mums name be wrong. The spelling was correct. Then I thought what if the original operator skipped mum’s middle name and just put her first and last. So I gave it a try. Hey presto. It worked. Still annoying that I’m at the mercy of imbeciles and have to second guess what they did on a computer terminal.
4:00 p.m. Took Alexander for a walk to Carrefour. Bought two nice Aussie steaks. I will cook them up with some fried onion and egg tonight for our dinner.
5:30 p.m. Dad was home when we returned. He took Alexander out for a walk. Wow ‘its my lucky day’ Alex must have been thinking. He likes going out.
7:00 p.m. Cooked up Aussie steak, onions and eggs for dinner. The onions were a little strong, perhaps under cooked or too young? I’m not sure. Still besides that it was tasty.
8:00 p.m. Worked on a project for kit no.2. I am building a circuit that imitates that roving red light you see on the ‘Knight Rider’car or the cylons eye in ‘Battlestar Galactica.’ After a few wrong connections I got it going. Looks cool!
