My parents were here for a while, we got to do a bit of touring/visiting. Got us out of the house!
Sunshine, is always a good thing. Its even better when its warmer in Ireland than it is in South Africa. I really needed some extra sunlight. It has an incredible affect on my mood. I don’t think I’d have been able to handle all the recent work stress if it wasn’t for the sunshine.
And thats why I haven’t posted in a while… So much work :/
But, it keeps me busy and keeps my brain active 🙂
We’ll be going to shut down Jeanine’s Bank of Ireland account soon. For way too many reasons to name.
But I’ll share a few recent snippets of our recent dealings with them:
“Why would you want to move your account to another branch, you can do everything from any branch.”
“Oh, you want to do (Insert any common banking activity here), you have to do that at the branch your account is held at”
“Sure, this cheque is a Bank of Ireland cheque, it’ll clear in a few hours” – Bank of Irelands definition of “few hours” means anything from 3 hours, to 72 hours.
When I want to do banking, I go to a bank. If I wanted lies, I’d go find a politician.
The least amusing surprise I got today, were the un-invited guests wandering around the ground floor of my house at 5am.
I woke up because Rooney barked (lazy little mutt didn’t even get out of his basket). I heard the sounds of someone wandering around the house, yet everyone that should have been in the house were already accounted for (Jeanine, 2x dogs and myself).
I took a stroll down the stairs (squeeky as any haunted house you’ll ever find), which obviously scared them off.
On the up-side, it only took 7 minutes for the Garda to arrive after I called.
Nothing was taken, which is quite surprising because there were 3 laptops sitting on the lounge coffee table, just asking to go walkies…
