A friend I met through another forum was recently diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia.
On the up side, he's been told that survival rates are very high and he's otherwise very fit and healthy.

Yeah AML is the worse one. It took my cousin and damn nearly my uncle too who was saved by some wonderful person's stem cells.

Hope your friend comes through ok.

Yeah, having heard about his diagnosis I was doing some reading and saw the survival rates of the different types.....

Scary stuff.

Not a massive nay compared to some in this thread, but, today has seen Jazzy:
    Get a parking ticket (first ever!)
    Get so low on fuel I have to take a detour and coast into the nearest petrol station
    Miss my dentist appointment.

My yay is that I got to see a lovely colleague (currently on maternity) and her month old baby who let me cuddle him for a whole hour. :)

Might just consider today over though and go to bed!

Just finished a video for a client and he's emailed me back saying. "It's a wrap on the video. It's the best we're going to do this time around! :P Thanks for all your efforts"

I'm probably reading too much into it as he has been really positive throughout the whole process so far. This email just seems like it's a "good enough" type deal?

Never mind. I'm pleased with it and my invoice is on the way!

If you were pleased and you got paid, that's a win!

Maybe he was being self depricating

This time round sounds like repeat business to me. Stay positive and well done!

I guess the client has a budget and can't spend any more on it, I wouldn't worry unless they complained about it. Good enough is good enough.

Well my car has cost me then best part of £1,400 but it's running great now.

Our loft conversion idea has had to be rethought, costing us more money but it'll retain the huge back bedroom and give us a bigger open plan 3rd floor.

Realised with the help of Markg that my RC transmitter is borked and that's why (mostly) I've been having terrible crashes recently but I found a bargain new one that I had just enough money to scrape together and grab.

Yep, all spot on. I won't worry about it. I'm pleased with it!

Good enough is a much maligned target. Good enough should be exactly what you are targeting in a business transaction. Efficient, see...

Found 3 old £1 coins.
The bank swapped them for new ones!
Rover worth £3 less

But the coins in the car were worthless in their non-legal tender state.

Your car has remained the same in that respect.

The question is, can YOU swap them? If not, send them to MaliA.
