One of the people I work with handed in her notice on Thursday - she's going to go and do a PGCE and teach. Apparently her boss (not the same as mine) said he "wasn't dissatisfied" with her work ... which has to be the most half-hearted compliment I've ever heard, and anyway, you'd never tell from her day-to-day interactions with him.
When I got in from work last night the house smelled of curry, which was a little strange as last time we had a curry was when Rachel was here ... when I got into the kitchen I found out why - the cat had knocked the jar of ground fenugreek off the shelf onto the floor. The jar itself was intact, but the lid was a little cracked. No spice visible on the floor, but kitchen and cat both smell strongly of it so maybe he ate it ;) He seems happy though.
We were going to watch another episode from the Beatles Anthology last night, but found that the PS2 wouldn't power on :( It had been working Thursday night, and there's no sign of damage at all so unlikely to be the cat. We tried a different power lead but no joy. So this morning I get to ring Sony and see what they can do - a quick websearch last night turned up a few hits on that sort of problem, and suggestions to replace an internal fuse, but I think we'll see what Sony charge for repair/replacement first. We'll also check out prices for second-hand ones.
The other phonecall I needed to make this morning was to ring for tickets for The Matrix Reloaded this evening, which is now sorted out.
