Aww, one of my website customers in Portugal has sent me a present. (I predict the custard things won't last the day)

Finished work for Christmas, in my pyjamas, red wine in my glass, a tube of Pringles and Gremlins on the telly. :luv:

Would take too long and be TL;DR if I explained it all, but, I am moving very soon.

After the battle with my landlady Environmental Services have been leaning on her very hard. The fine stage began, so she tried to trick me into staying here (paying the rent and billls) whilst she decorates the entire flat, then wanted me out. She served me a Section 21 shortly after, then tried getting me to pay the £350 to evict, erm, myself.

The trust who are housing me (in a brand new, quite spectacular build with granite work tops) have now completely taken over the arguing etc. They've been truly amazing and I feel truly blessed. Thankfully not only have the trust advised me to refuse access, but so has the guy at Environmental Services, stating and I quote "That would absolutely destroy those beautiful computers". He did say he was a gamer when he came around :D

So yeah, within two months I shall be the eaves of a building with lots of windows that all look straight over the sea.

I can't fucking wait tbh. I've spent half the winter with family, because it just wasn't possible to keep this place warm. I mean FFS, my cooker is so rusty from the damp that I have to bin it.

TBH the nay part is pretty much over, given that the trust are taking care of everything. They're truly amazing. I bought them a huge bunch of flowers today :)

Look at those curls!

We’ve only just got a marble run and they are the best toys ever.

We finally got a decent telly. We had been using a borrowed analogue 4:3 CRT (made by 'Base'), and it was very small and crappy*. Going up to a 42" HDTV has made quite the difference, and I'm very pleased with it. Bioshock looks pretty nice, eh?

Lady T has got some new baking gear and has promised to make some cakes and scones :D

so, YAY!



*It did have a remote control with a million buttons (give or take a few), and had a built in game of sokoban.


This should probably go into the nay thread, but this Saturday morning our venerable 42" Panasonic plasma met its fate thanks to a two-year old with a bad temper carrying a plastic stick :'(

Although, it's been quite nice not having a TV in the house for the weekend. I'm not in any rush to replace it.

Off to the Barbican tonight to hear the VPO play Mahler's 9th Symphony. Long been one of my favourite pieces but shamefully I've never heard it live. Of course, my teenage years might have been happier had I never discovered its morose and moribund themes.

After around 5 years of it being broken, I've finally got round to fixing the clothes horse with a 20p nut and bolt.

I can now hang clothes off it without the worry of it falling over. Today has been a good day

I don't like the Australian system of sports seasons finishing with the top couple of teams in the league going into a 'finals' system to determine which team ultimately wins... but in this case it worked for me as the 'mighty' Highlands Reds soccer football team (finished 3rd in a league of 5 teams) won both the semi and the grand final - we beat the team that had been top of the league all season with two slightly cheap goals.

$250 prize money immediately taken to the pub and spent on booze, natch.
