More messages from beyond the grave

It’s that time of year again when I get a stream of emails from Christopher, or rather from a Google Calendar that he set up before he died, giving me loads of reminders of things to do around the house. So far, he’s given me a ghostly nudge to:

  • Get the central heating serviced
  • Shop around for car and house insurance
  • Get the septic tank emptied
  • Put the car through its annual service and MOT.

I did the last one today, though unfortunately the car failed its MOT on the first time of asking. It just scraped through on a “re-sit” after some work, but will need some more work on the brakes to get it properly fit for the winter. Annoying, but given that it’s 14 years old I suppose it’s inevitable that it will need some effort to keep it roadworthy. And given that I live at the top of a very steep hill, I really do need to have fully operational brakes!

In a way it’s quite nice that Christopher is still helping out around the house, but I do wish I knew his google password so that I could be more selective about which reminders I get. Oh well.
