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.

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!

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.

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.

Was away in Belgium most of this week.

On Wednesday night got back to my room around 11pm after eating dinner with some people from work I had bumped into.

My passport wasn't in any of my pockets, so 20 mins of panic and retracing my steps, (we had eaten at a hotel opposite)

No sign of it so I walked back to the hotel planning to call our travel provider and work out how the hell I would get home.

Then I remembered I had showered and changed before going out, I always travel with a small bin liner and but all my dirty clothes in that, so find my trousers and there is the passport in the back pocket: DD

Don't remember having this level of panic for some time! Had 4 beers with dinner that probably didn't help!

Also, I assume the "yay" part is that you didn't then have to run or ride the bike?

Nay - after a shitty couple of months which has led to my anxiety breaking me over the last couple of weeks, I'm told one of our big trees went over into next door's garden last night. From the description, the 20+ metre tall sweet chestnut with a trunk well over a metre thick. Onto the greenhouse we sold them last weekend.

Yay - just the empty greenhouse rather than house, I get to buy a pair of big axes now, and sweet chestnut is brilliant smoking wood.

We did, but it would be worth the good faith in offering a refund. They'd got as far as assembling the vertical panels and laying them out - there's a pretty good chance it's fine; the glass is still in our garage and the one we've erected had a heavily-laden fig tree fall on it without damage.

I am now super glad we had the eucalyptus removed, that was already shaky in the last batch of winds and would've been straight onto their house.

Oh thank fuck - it was a silver birch that's half the height and a twentieth the width - and it landed in such a way as to do essentially o damage to anything.

No, but I need to take lots of the chestnut anyway. And the hazel. And the apples. And there's already chestnut and cherry knocking around the garden somewhere that I should start seasoning.

I got nicked for speeding yesterday. In Italy, so there go all those urban myths about the traffic police turning a blind eye to speeding motorists. I had to suppress a smile when they told me the fine was €28.70

It’s supposedly €41 if you take up to 2 weeks to pay. You get a 30% discount for paying within five days, hence the €28.70
