Arsenal 3 Southampton 3

Premier League leaders Arsenal scored two late goals as they fought back to draw a thriller at home to struggling Southampton. It was a third draw in a row for the Gunners and Manchester City are now five points behind but with two games in hand – and host the Gunners at Etihad Stadium next Wednesday. Saints led after just 28 seconds, when Carlos Alcaraz capitalised on an Aaron Ramsdale error to score. Arsenal have now conceded the two fastest goals at home in the Premier League this season, the other being Philip Billing’s strike after 9.11 seconds for Bournemouth. Theo Walcott doubled the Southampton lead against his former club, before Gabriel Martinelli pulled one back for the league leaders.

Duje Caleta-Car restored the Southampton two-goal advantage and appeared to seal the three points – only for Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka to score in the 88th and 90th minutes to earn a draw. It follows draws away to Liverpool and West Ham United for Mikel Arteta’s side in their previous two games. Southampton remain bottom of the table and three points from safety, having now failed to win in seven league games. After being unable to maintain a two-goal lead in their previous two Premier League games, Arsenal found the shoe on the other foot as they went 2-0 down inside 12 minutes in front of a shocked Emirates Stadium. While Arsenal have been affected badly by absences – Granit Xhaka missed this match through illness, while key defender William Saliba remains out injured – this draw, more than those against Liverpool and West Ham, indicated the pressure may be getting to them in the title race.

Ramsdale had clearly not learned from Manchester United keeper David de Gea’s error the day before. Like the Spaniard, he attempted a short pass to the edge of his area, but Alcaraz pounced and fired home across the Arsenal keeper. If Arsenal were stunned then, they were really rattled soon after when Alcaraz’s through ball was picked up by Walcott, who ghosted away from Gabriel and coolly finished, before refusing to celebrate against his old team. Only then did the Gunners rouse themselves as Oleksandr Zinchenko, on the night he became the first Ukrainian to make 100 Premier League appearances, called an inquest among all 11 Arsenal players in the centre circle.

And it had an impact, as Martinelli volleyed home on 18 minutes, before Arsenal went on to dominate possession and chances as Southampton tried to kill time whenever they could. But when Caleta-Car escaped his marker at the far post to head home a corner in the 66th minute, it left Arsenal’s title bid in serious trouble. Captain Odegaard’s fine left-footed strike and Saka finishing on the rebound from a Reiss Nelson shot amid a grandstand finish at least saved a point.

6 Tips On How To Get Ready For An Interview

1. Research the industry and company.
An interviewer may ask how you perceive his company’s position in its industry, who the firm’s competitors are, what its competitive advantages are, and how it should best go forward. For this reason, avoid trying to thoroughly research a dozen different industries. Focus your job search on just a few industries instead.

2. Clarify your “selling points” and the reasons you want the job.
Prepare to go into every interview with three to five key selling points in mind, such as what makes you the best candidate for the position. Have an example of each selling point prepared (“I have good communication skills. For example, I persuaded an entire group to …”). And be prepared to tell the interviewer why you want that job – including what interests you about it, what rewards it offers that you find valuable, and what abilities it requires that you possess. If an interviewer doesn’t think you’re really, really interested in the job, he or she won’t give you an offer – no matter how good you are!

3. Anticipate the interviewer’s concerns and reservations.
There are always more candidates for positions than there are openings. So interviewers look for ways to screen people out. Put yourself in their shoes and ask yourself why they might not want to hire you (“I don’t have this,” “I’m not that,” etc.). Then prepare your defense: “I know you may be thinking that I might not be the best fit for this position because [their reservation]. But you should know that [reason the interviewer shouldn’t be overly concerned].”

4. Prepare for common interview questions.
Every “how to interview” book has a list of a hundred or more “common interview questions.” (You might wonder just how long those interviews are if there are that many common questions!) So how do you prepare? Pick any list and think about which questions you’re most likely to encounter, given your age and status (about to graduate, looking for a summer internship). Then prepare your answers so you won’t have to fumble for them during the actual interview.

5. Line up your questions for the interviewer.
Come to the interview with some intelligent questions for the interviewer that demonstrate your knowledge of the company as well as your serious intent. Interviewers always ask if you have any questions, and no matter what, you should have one or two ready. If you say, “No, not really,” he or she may conclude that you’re not all that interested in the job or the company. A good all-purpose question is, “If you could design the ideal candidate for this position from the ground up, what would he or she be like?”

If you’re having a series of interviews with the same company, you can use some of your prepared questions with each person you meet (for example, “What do you think is the best thing about working here?” and “What kind of person would you most like to see fill this position?”) Then, try to think of one or two others during each interview itself.

6. Be ready to handle illegal and inappropriate questions.
Interview questions about your race, age, gender, religion, marital status, and sexual orientation are inappropriate and in many areas illegal. Nevertheless, you may get one or more of them. If you do, you have a couple of options. You can simply answer with a question (“I’m not sure how that’s relevant to my application”), or you can try to answer “the question behind the question”: “I don’t know whether I’ll decide to have children in the near future, but if you’re wondering if I’ll be leaving my job for an extended period of time, I can say that I’m very committed to my career and frankly can’t imagine giving it up.”

Six Ways to Declutter Your Windows PC

1. Search for and Remove Old Apps

Older, unused applications take up space on your drive that could be used for other purposes. On top of that, many applications–especially those that have not been updated recently–pose security threats. If you want to keep your machine running as smoothly as possible, take the time at least once a year to remove applications you have not used. Open Settings > Apps > Apps & features to see the list of currently-installed applications on your PC. You can sort by name, size, or install date. We recommend sorting by size. Since your digital spring cleaning is focused on efficiency, look at the largest programs you have installed.

2. Clean Up Your Browser

Your browser automatically stores cookies that can slow down your browsing experience. These cookies enable automatic logins on different websites, as well as form autocompletes. The browser also stores the cached version of different websites. Sure, while the content might change each time you visit Reddit, the images and specific settings do not. These are stored in your browser and load almost instantly. A cached version of a website hastens load times and reduces the amount of time you spend staring at progress bars. It’s good to clear your cache at least once a year, though. Not only does this eliminate many of the problems that arise from cached information (after all, one of the main troubleshooting tips is to clear your cache), but it also ensures you have the most recent versions of web pages and increases the performance of your PC.

To clear your browser in Chrome, click the three buttons in the top-right corner and click Settings. Click Clear browsing data and choose Cookies and other data and Cached images and files. Once you have chosen these two, click Clear data.

3. Delete Unnecessary System Files

Your system accumulates a variety of different files during operation. Some of these are related solely to the installation of an application and are never used again, while others are log files and error reports that are only valid until the next time you launch a program. The problem is that many of these files are never deleted. The good news is that Windows 10 has an integrated, built-in tool that helps you clear out these files and free up storage space. Open Settings System > Storage > Temporary files. This displays a list of all temporary files on your PC. You can choose between individual sections or select all of the files and delete them.

Select Temporary Internet Files and Temporary files and then click Remove Files at the top of the window. This will permanently delete these files, but don’t worry–any necessary files will automatically be generated and configured when you launch a program that needs it.

4. Clean Your Inbox

Every Spring-cleaning day has at least one task you don’t want to tackle. Maybe it’s the bathrooms, or maybe it’s that upstairs closet you haven’t opened in two years. In your digital life, this obstacle to getting your digital life organized is most likely your inbox. The ideal goal is to reach Inbox Zero, but if you have a limited amount of time just aim to delete older emails. Anything more than a year old is likely safe to delete. If older emails contain something you want to keep, download it to your computer. Your inbox has a limited amount of space, whether you host your own address or use a Gmail account. Deleting old emails and their attachments frees up space for new messages.

5. Run a Virus Scan

Another thing you should do is perform a virus and malware scan on your system. Often, the most harmful digital infections are those that don’t make a splash–they sit on your drive for weeks or months collecting information. Passwords, credit card numbers, and more can all be put at risk and you might never know until someone begins spending your money. If you don’t already run periodic virus scans, you should schedule one at least once per month. Perform both a virus scan and a malware scan on your PC as part of your digital cleaning. This will let you know if anything is hiding out in some dusty sector of your hard drive and help you remove it.

6. Update Your Software

It’s never a glamorous job and it can sometimes lead to more problems, but updating the Windows operating system and all of your hardware drivers is normally going to make things run smoother. With the big Windows updates that come out every 6 months (usually around April and October), it’s best to wait at least a month after the release before updating. Whatever issues and bugs are in the first release will usually all be fixed after a month or so. Updating your drivers is important as there manufacturers are always releasing updates to improve performance, compatibility and stability.

Take the chance this spring to straighten up your PC. You’ll find that it runs better, is easier to navigate, and safer to use. It doesn’t have to take long–most everything on this list can be accomplished in an hour or two.

Changed Plans For The Weekend

What are your plans for the weekend ahead?

Well one of the biggest bummers happened to me this week in that I had to leave my current training batch, who were at day 15 of their 20 day training period, and hand it over to one of the SME’s and then take over a new batch that was starting on Tuesday. This new batch was in the Chennai office, so I would be running the training remotely, conducting the sessions online via Webex. But this meant a spanner in my plans.

It was to be a long 3 day weekend due to Eid being tomorrow and us getting the day holiday here in Kerala. However it was declared to be on Saturday in Tamil Nadu and hence me and another colleague have to work on Friday as we are conducting the training for the Chennai office. So I miss out on a 3 day  weekend and I actually was looking forward to it. So I have changed my plans and I most probably will stay in.

I plan to watch or atleast start to watch 1 or 2 of the Marvel streaming shows that I have yet to watch. Those being Ms Marvel * She-Hulk. I can’t believe that I have yet to watch them and that actually shows me how much I am superheroed out. Way too many shows and movies. When it was just the movies it was fine but none of the tv shows have really excited me. I will give them a run this weekend. If I do feel like doing it, I might go out on Saturday and get a haircut and drink a couple of beers. Let’s see!

SCARIEST PLACES IN THE WORLD : Al Madam Ghost Village, United Arab Emirates

According to the locals, the history of this perplexing ghost town near Dubai is not known. All we know is that the village of Al Madam also called “Buried Village” was constructed sometime around 1970. According to some locals who participated in the 2018 Sharjah Art Foundation public survey conducted to trace the history of the village, this mysterious place was once inhabited by the Al Kutbii tribe.

One theory is that the village could have been a part of the Sha’bi housing project by the UAE government which endeavoured to provide the Bedouin population with well-constructed settlements. But considering the current state of the village, it seems like things didn’t go to plan. Some locals attribute the abandonment to the lack of infrastructure and electricity.

A widely held belief behind the abandonment of the village is that place is haunted by a notorious group of “djinns” – the supernatural beings that are said to possess places and people. Locals also believe that there is something mysterious in the sand that caused it to invade the houses, leading the locals to flee the village. Other tales place the blame squarely on Umm Al Duwais, a female jinn said to have cat eyes and machetes for hands, whose story is integral to Emirati folklore.

Be ready to walk a lot if ever you decide to explore the ‘abandoned village’ of Al Madam. As you’ll walk closer to the village (inside), you’ll find well-built houses in well shape, half covered in sand. It’s a sad sight, agreed, but slowly the sight will start to creep you out by the presence of some unseen negative vibes. Part of the appeal is that the village is so open for exploration and contains hidden treasures for explorers to find. There are no plans to develop Al Madam as a tourist attraction at present though tourists are welcome to visit.

What Things Make You Happy?

In this current life that I have there are a few things that still do make me happy and keep me in good spirits. Good food and drink makes me happy. Talking to and meeting my friends make me happy. Getting to meet them over some coffee or drink and food will even more joyous. Having an extra day off from work is another thing that makes me happy, especially in this time of going back to work at the office, instead of the bliss that was work from home.

Listening to some great song from the 60s,70s, 80s, 90s & 2000s makes me very happy. Sure there are some good songs since then but I think the best music came from these decades and it’s gonna be the stuff that I listen to. No rap stuff! My fav movies makes me happy, watching them or even just reading or discussing them. Star Trek makes me happy; all science fiction does but Star Trek in particular makes me so happy. It also makes me happy to think of myself living in an age where space travel is so easy to do and that I am traveling through the galaxy with my family.

Football, Youtube, the internet and blogging makes me happy. Pretty young women makes me happy. I dunno, a lot of things do make me happy and I love to be in the moment and experiencing joy when one of these things happens.

Best Ways To Beat The Heat This April/Summer

Stay hydrated

You must have noticed that we feel thirstier on the day it is hot. Have you ever wondered why this happens? Because heat makes you sweat. Sweat is basically your body’s response to regulate internal body temperature. However, this makes you lose water and you can feel dehydrated. Also, the more sweaty you get, the more tired you feel. Why do you feel tired due to sweating? Because it depletes the electrolytes from the body and drains your energy. Staying hydrated is very important during summers as it ensures that the body functions properly. Opt for lemonade, watermelon juice, orange juice, etc. In this way you will get plenty of minerals along with fluid in the body.

Follow a light diet

In summer we eat less food because it may reduce hunger. It is crucial to eat regularly because your body needs more nutrients to fight the heat and keep you healthy. But don’t overeat. Try to take a light diet. Include vegetables like cucumber, gourd, pumpkin etc. in your diet. Try to avoid consuming too much of heavy, spicy recipes like chicken gravy, eggs and other animal proteins.

Take cold-water bath

The fastest and easiest way to get relief from the heat is to take a bath with cold water. But you cannot do it every little while. Keeping an ice pack on the neck can also be an alternative to reduce the body temperature. Not only this, wiping the face and feet with a wet cloth also gives relief from heat. Do not forget to wash your face and feet with cold water before sleeping at night. This will make you feel better and be ready to fight the heat for a few hours.

Wear light, cotton clothes

Try to avoid tight clothing in summers so that air can circulate throughout the body. Go for cotton clothes mostly as they absorb sweat and keep you cool. Absolutely hide synthetic clothes in the wardrobe in summer. Also avoid wearing dark coloured clothes. Because dark colors absorb more heat and make you feel uncomfortable.

Avoid exercising too much

First and foremost, note that exercise is a must for a healthy body and mind, and we are a supporter too! But do not overexhaust yourselves. Keep your post workout snacks ready after a good session. Instead of indulging in outdoor activities in the sun, you may shift to an indoor gym.

Maintain ventilation in your homes

Keep your windows open for a while and let the home breathe. On the days when the weather is very hot, drop the curtain so that the harsh rays of the sun do not enter the room. Too many electric bulbs and lights in the room can raise the room temperature to a little extent. Turn off as many lights as you can and only use the ones you need.

Try to stay indoors

The more you stay indoors in summer, the more you will be able to protect yourself from the heat. But staying indoors all the time is also difficult. So, plan your outing keeping the weather in mind. On the day when the weather is about to warm up, postpone your outing for some time. If you like to go for a walk, try to go early in the morning or after the sunset.

For healthy skin, keep cosmetics cool

You can keep your cosmetics like lotions and moisturizers in the refrigerator. You ought to feel refreshed every time you use it. Not just creams, you can also store your lipstick or facial wipes in the fridge. Cooled rose water also gives relief from heat. You can fill it in a spray bottle and keep it in the fridge. Sprinkle it directly on your face or use it in cotton wool to wipe your face. It will give instant relief from the heat.

Five Tips For Working From Home

1. Maintain Regular Hours

Set a schedule and stick to it…most of the time. Having clear guidelines for when to work and when to call it a day helps many remote workers maintain a work-life balance. That said, one of the best benefits of remote work is flexibility when the job allows for it. Sometimes you need to extend your day or start early to accommodate someone else’s time zone. When you do, be sure to wrap up earlier than usual or sleep in a bit the next morning to make up for it.

2. Create a Morning Routine

Deciding you’ll sit down at your desk and start work at a certain time is one thing. Creating a routine that guides you into the chair is another. A routine can be more powerful than a clock at helping you get started each day. What in your morning routine indicates you’re about to start work? It might be making a cup of coffee before you tackle your to-do list. It might be returning home after a jog or getting dressed. (Wearing pajamas is a work-from-home perk for some, but a bad strategy for others.) Look for an existing habit that you have, like brushing your teeth or coming in from a dog walk, to act as your signal. That way, you can tack on the new habit of kicking off your workday.

3. Schedule Breaks

If you work for an organization, know the policy on break times and take them. If you’re self-employed, give yourself adequate time during the day to walk away from the computer screen and phone. A lunch hour and two 15-minute breaks seem to be the standard for full-time US employees. For computer-based work and other sedentary work, it’s important to stand up and move to get your blood circulating every so often, at least once an hour. It also helps to move your eyes off of the screen regularly, even if it’s a micro-break of 10 to 20 seconds.

4. Leave Home

To the extent that it’s safe, get out of the house and move your body. Your body needs blood circulation. Plus, the fresh air and natural light will do you good. Ideally, step outside for at least a short while before, during, and after your working hours. This same advice applies equally to people who do in-person work. Leave the building at least once a day during working hours. If your circumstances and conditions allow, you might also go to cafes, libraries, and co-working spaces to break up the monotony of being at home. That’s great, but the really important part is to leave your home, get some air and natural light, and move.  You don’t have to go to crowded public spaces to get away from your solo workspace. Take a walk. Weed the garden. Sit on the stoop. You get the picture.

5. Keep a Dedicated Office Space

In an ideal world, remote employees would have not only a dedicated office, but also two computers, one for work and one for personal use. It’s more secure for the employer, and it lets you do all your NSFW activities in private. But not everyone has a spare room to use as an office in their home, and keeping two machines isn’t always realistic. Instead, dedicate a desk or table space and some peripherals that will be used only for work. For example, when your laptop is hooked up to the monitor and external keyboard, it’s work time.

West Ham 2 Arsenal 2

Leaders Arsenal missed a penalty and threw away a two-goal lead as they drew at West Ham in a blow to their hopes of winning the Premier League. A close-range finish from Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard’s volley put the visitors 2-0 ahead inside the opening 10 minutes at London Stadium as they looked to be cruising to the victory. But, just as they did in the 2-2 draw at Liverpool last Sunday, Mikel Arteta’s side could not hold on to their advantage and dropped valuable points in their title battle with Manchester City. Said Benrahma’s penalty, after Gabriel had brought down Lucas Paqueta, gave the Hammers a way back into the game, before Arsenal got a spot-kick of their own, following Michail Antonio’s handball, but Bukayo Saka shot wide.

That proved costly as the hosts scored less than three minutes later through Jarrod Bowen’s superb volley from Thilo Kehrer’s lofted pass. West Ham, still 15th in the table but now four points above the relegation zone, could have won it when Antonio’s header bounced off the crossbar in a frantic finish. Arsenal began the weekend six points clear of City, but that has now been cut to four after Pep Guardiola’s side won 3-1 at home against Leicester on Saturday. The Gunners have seven matches left and play Southampton at home on Friday, before City, who have a game in hand, entertain Arsenal at Etihad Stadium on 26 April. Arsenal are now unbeaten in nine Premier League games since a 3-1 home loss to City, but Arteta will see this as two points dropped and wonder how they did not gain the victory.

Just as they did at Anfield a week ago, they missed chances to wrap up the game only to concede twice. They are wobbling in their bid to become English champions for the 14th time and the first since Arsene Wenger’s ‘Invincibles’ went a league season without losing in 2003-04. For the opening half-hour Arsenal’s football was a joy to watch as they overpowered West Ham and looked to have wrapped up the three points with relative ease, with Jesus scoring his fourth goal in three matches before Odegaard added a second three minutes later. Thomas Partey then sloppily lost possession to Declan Rice and that led to the penalty which gave West Ham hope and changed the course of the match.

However, even after Bowen’s equaliser, Arsenal still had opportunities to get a winning goal. Jesus narrowly missed getting a touch on Kieran Tierney’s cross before two chances in the last three minutes, but Saka headed wide before Rob Holding’s header was saved by ex-Gunner Lukasz Fabianski.

Five Benefits Of Blogging That Most Bloggers Will Agree

1. To share their passion

When you are passionate about something, you want to share it with the world. Whether it’s a passion for fishing, photography, or marketing, blogging is an excellent way to share that passion. When you blog about something you are passionate about, it opens the door to connecting with those around the world who speak your language and have the same passions.

2. You will improve your writing skills

The more you do something, the better you will become at that skill. Writing is no exception. Even if you don’t set out to study writing, your writing will improve the more you do it. You can even invest in grammar checker tools to help you with the writing basics, punctuation, spelling, sentence structure, and style while you write.

3. You will connect with new people

One of the greatest benefits of blogging is connecting with others. You don’t just grow some followers on social networks or email lists. You build genuine relationships. You make friends with people you wouldn’t have met otherwise. Something that surprises many people is that they develop a fan base through blogging. If you attend events in your industry, you will get recognized by people you’ve never met. They will thank you for all the great work you have done.

4. Keeping friends and family updated:

If you live far away from your friends and family, blogging can be a great way to keep them updated on what’s going on in your life. You can use your blog to share news, photos, and stories with the people you love.

5. You Will Have a Healthy Emotional Outlet

This is especially true if you are looking to blog for personal purposes. While your blog may not be meant as a “secret diary”, it can still serve as an emotional outlet. Studies have shown that writing helps people heal emotionally after a traumatic experience. Even if your experiences may not be considered especially traumatic, writing can serve as a way to overcome mental and physical hardships in life.

10 Fun Facts About Budweiser

The business was built from the ground up by German immigrants.

Adolphus Busch emigrated to St. Louis, Missouri from Germany in the 1850s. He immediately got into the brewing supply business and started collaborating with the Anheuser brewery. He married the owner’s daughter, Lily Anheuser, and began working for Anheuser. By 1880, Busch was the president of the company, now called Anheuser-Busch.

It was the original mass-market light beer in America.

America had a heavy English heritage in its early days, and our beer-drinking preferences mirrored those of the United Kingdom. Anheuser-Busch borrowed from Bohemian beer traditions, though, and sold light lagers.

Anheuser-Busch has a history of taking advantage of scientific innovation.

The brewery built its own refrigerated rail network to keep the fragile lagers fresh as they traveled across the country. The company was also the first to pasteurize beer, allowing it to become the first national beer brand.

Beer and big sport

Beer Budweiser is inextricably linked with almost all important events in the world of sports. So, Bud acted as the official sponsor of the NASCAR and NFL teams, and also sponsored the Beijing Olympics in 2008, the World Cup in 2010, the Vancouver Olympics of the same year and more.

Prohibition couldn’t stop the brand.

Anheuser-Busch was one of the few breweries that managed to stay open during the 10-plus years of Prohibition. To keep the business running, the brewery pumped out non-alcoholic products.

The infamous rice in the ingredient list has always been there.

Budweiser claims to use the same five ingredients that Adolphus Busch used when he started the brewery: water, barley, yeast, hops, and rice.

Bud Light has been more popular than Budweiser since 2001.

The only thing Americans love consuming in mass quantity more than lager is light lager. Bud Light was introduced in 1988 and overtook Budweiser in sales in 2001.

It can’t be sold as Budweiser in parts of Europe.

A brewery in the Czech Republic called Budejovicky Budvar has a claim on the name Budweiser for its beer, Budvar Budweiser. Instead, what Americans call Budweiser is simply called Bud.


Humor has always been present in Budweiser beer ads. It is thanks to atypical and funny commercials that beer of this brand has gained such great popularity. So, for advertising “Whassup ?!” Anheuser-Busch even won the Grand Prix at the forty-eighth annual Cannes International Advertising Festival. This advertisement was rewritten on cassettes and CDs, and the funny phrase was instantly picked up by hundreds of thousands of people, many of whom were not even beer drinkers.

It’s part of a large Belgium multinational.

In 2008, Anheuser-Busch sold outside the family for the first time. It was acquired by a Belgian group to create Anheuser-Busch InBev. That group has been contentious among craft brewers as it bought up 10 independent breweries. The Brewers Association, the largest craft brewing lobbying group, has declared war on AB InBev and Budweiser.

Sharing My Current Nighttime Routine

Share your nighttime routine

I’m going to mention my current nighttime routine since I have been working from 8:30 am till 5:30 pm. Well, I usually drink a cup of tea at around 7 pm. Usually black but sometimes with milk as well. I drink it at my desk while watching Youtube. I also play some games on my phone and blog a post or two. At around 9 pm is when I have my dinner along with the parents.

Once dinner is done and the plates are put away, I will go back to my desk and wait for almost 10:30 pm. That is when I go back to the kitchen and get a small orange and an apple from the fridge and put them in a bowl. I will take them back to my desk and eat them while I still watch Youtube videos. I usually will shut down the system by 11 pm.

I then try to watch some tv show episodes that were released during that week. Usually I will just last 1 episode or so and then will either fall asleep with all the lights and the tv on or I will rouse myself from the closing eyelids and then switch everything off before I get back into bed and go to sleep as my alarm will ring at 6 am.

Name 5 Things That You Would Like To Clear Out Of Your Home.

Only if I can get a brand new one but I would like to get rid of my current mattress and bed. It’s time for a new one. Also my desk – it’s time for a new one. I would like to get rid of that and get a new one, money permitting ofcourse.

There are some old boxes of stuff that we have stored in a section of the 3rd bedroom of our flat. It is ust a bunch of stuff that we do not really need. It is just gathering dust sitting up there in the loft above the room. I can’t even get up there and take the stuff down!

And I guess finally I would like to clear out all the furniture in the living room and get new sofas and chairs for the family. New dining table and chairs as well. That would be nice.
