Blah. This slimming thing isn't really working very well. I've somehow managed to use double the number of sin points I had intended to. It's really odd - a fried egg sandwich is cheaper than a tuna paste sandwich. I suspect it's going to take a while to get used to it all.

On another slightly bum-note, it's that time of year when I'm 21 again this weekend. Everyone wants me to have a party, but I've been crap and shy and not told the neighbours that I'm having a party so I can't really have one. I've decided to have a sort-of-quiet-party - invite a few people over, have something to drink (hopefully not very sinful), chat, maybe watch a few videos or something.

I guess the only good thing about today is that I've finally got a time for the dishwasher to arrive. It'll be arriving sometime between 12pm and 4pm. A bit of a pain, as I wanted to go shopping and this time get some food I can cook and eat. I guess I'll have to get up early.

Oh well. Diet is going better today, in that I've not had time to eat much more than a couple of apples. The dishwasher was meant to be delivered and installed today. They turned up early, but took one look at the pipes and said they wouldn't install it. Instead I had 2 options - leave it behind or get it delivered later when I'd sorted the pipes out. I figured the latter option would be best - I had no idea how to get the pipes fixed. Off they went with my lovely new dishwasher.

I started phoning people to let them know about the party and whilst chatting to evilref, explained the dishwasher problem. He kindly offered to help. Took a bit more work than it appeared as the back of the cupboard the pipes are in, isn't flush against the wall. That, and he noticed that some of the drinking water pipes are soldered which means the water could be poisoned with lead. It's looking like I'll have to replace the entire plumbing nightmare - hopefully before I flood the flat downstairs.
