A bit of yay. Got the money through from the car I traded in, so now I don't have car finance and nor a personal loan. That means I have £12,000 less debt now.

Which is lovely.

I was gonna say presumably you have car finance on the neon wonder, but that’s a company car right?

No I went for a lease and it works out cheaper than the finance.

The company gives me a car allowance so using that.

I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I ate'nt dead. Bored, yes. Dead, no. No, really, I'm not taking the piss...........oh, hang on, I am. I have a bag of it attached to my willy with a tube. It's really convenient and I might make it a permanent fixture. I hope this message finds you as it leaves me, in surprisingly good health.

That's all for now, typing on this phone's tiny keyboard is a pain. Should be home in three or four days if all goes to plan.

LONG LIVE THE NHS

There's one room with a curved wall, yet it has a straight door in it. The door looks different from each side, too.

Saw three bands tonight, and had a blast. if you get a chance see The Merchants, Panic Shack or Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard (pictured), go for it.

£11 well spent

Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard are far cooler than they ever should be. I am everso slightly listening to them all the time right now.

And the stage presence is why. Saw them at Green Man and they smashed the rod off the tent. Did it again in the 'Pool.

I saw a bird a couple of weeks ago that I would swear was a swallow, with the much more clearly defined fork tail. But that can't be right.

Depends whereabouts you are, but a few years ago I read that some swallow populations were overwintering in the U.K. now instead of migrating, so I don’t think they are quite the herald of summer they used to be. Still lovely to see. I haven’t seen one in years.

We used to get them nesting in the eaves of our house when I was a child. I wonder if they still return...

That is exactly how the scale at my place works (5 is best) so I too was initially confused. But well done Kov, good for you :smug:

I've just woken up. I think last night might be the most sleep I've had this year. Now I just need another month or so, and I might shake that always tired feeling.
