I had a last minute job come in on Thursday for Friday. I couldn't do it as I was at EGX but I managed to convince them to do it over the weekend instead. I've just finished it and put the invoice in so that's covered the mini Pac-man arcade machine I bought during EGX and more! Brilliant. It's like free money!

Nice!

Today I went to the first same sex wedding I've ever been to. My cousin Mark married a lovely guy called Paul. It was fantastic. They had a steel drum band, and they handed out percussion instruments to us and got us all involved. Brilliant, one of the best days ever.

Gaywood and I, entirely by accident, saw the very first same sex wedding in the UK.

That's two things off my bucket list this year. Same sex wedding, and ride a concrete skate bowl. Has been a fantastic year all told.

Last year was minging in comparison. Lost my uncle to cancer, an aunt to old age and split up with my wife. Having said that the latter was definitely for the best. Two people suffering from major depression does not a good mix make.

We were out drinking, and left the bar a bit after midnight. As we were walking to the tube the couple was coming out of the venue for photos, having got hitched at the stroke of midnight.

Stephen Fry was there, too.

Everyone! Meet Mack. He lives with us now. He is a retired racer, almost three years old. We brought him home yesterday, and he has been amazingly well behaved so far, especially considering he's almost certainly never been in a house before. He thinks stairs are very weird (won't go up or down them; looks at you as if to say "WHERE THE FUCK DID YOU COME FROM, ARE YOU A WIZARD" when you walk down them.) He is also highly disturbed by TVs.

Here is his racing record, he raced under the rather excellent name Mustang Elite: http://www.greyhound-data.com/d?whobeat ... 2uC2YpAaMY

Aww. He's awesome! I love greyhounds and whippets, they're always just so gentle and quiet. In fact I'm not sure I ever even saw one bark.

How was he over his first night, did he settle okay?

I have actually had my contract mapped over and back dated. With a 10% pay rise! Get in. :)

He looks a bit like the dog from Coco, but with less pointy ears. He is the cutest. Hello Mack!

Give you joy of the new family member, Doc! xx

That reminds me.. I bought 60+ gaming posters, A2 and A3 size on eBay. Seemed a good idea at the time, but now I've got to decide what the hell I'm going to do with them as selling them on my site is going to mean some hefty postage charges for someone due to postal tubs counting as Medium Parcel

I should have just sent a tube's worth of posters to the cottage.. would have been easier that way. :D

All the posters are spread across five tubes, so it's a pain in the arse to look for an individual one, but I'll have a nose when I have time.

Actually, that was one of the few that I looked at..

Place accepted for BigOne into School Two. Which had a place all along, we just were not told. Good job we were having a social chat with a governor about it all last night, too.
