    Spring clean done. Time to sit back and enjoy the cleanliness.

    Had a nice workout today, will feel it in my whole body tomorrow. But it should be gone by Monday, the day of my wedding.

    And right now I feel tired, happy and pretty excited. Tomorrow I probably won't even feel the pain.

    Clearing a credit card on Tuesday when my eBay managed payment comes through. Slowly and surely getting there now.

    I’ve also been nominated for a performance based bonus, assuming no massive objections from seniors at the top in terms of numbers nominated, it’ll equate to 30% of my usual take home pay so would probably clear something else.

    Feel very focussed on not making such a financial hash of my 30s as I did my 20s. By June next year I plan to be debt free on my 30th anything leaving my bank account on a regular basis by then being essential bills... I hope.

    Just had a few nights away in a holiday let.

    It was just nice to be 'elsewhere' even if it wasn't that far. A little jaunt to the beach was also the first time i've seen the sea for over 6 months - too long.

    I know the feeling all too well - it's been almost six hours since I've seen the sea.

    I live about 2, maybe 3 miles from the coast, I couldn't tell you the last time I saw the sea. It became the go too place for the gov recommended 1hr of excersice so was packed tighter than a hot summers day.

    :p

    I used to live about a five minute drive away and seconds from a Marina. I mean the views I have now and the woods a ten second walk away more than compensate but I do miss the water.

    Luckily as we know the area when we took a drive to the beach we headed for the one that's not reknowned for being a beachy, fish and chippy place.

    Lovely little place with a really good sized beach with not many people on.

    Obviously we had to dodge families on the paths there who let their kids run right up to you and take up the path as being the only family in the world.

    Cretins.

    Bonus has been confirmed, no objections from the seniors & it may be paid a month sooner than I expected! Wahooo!

    Also, first day back to pre-school for my son and he's come home buzzing... Sounds like he's had a blast which is good. I used the time wisely to paint the remaining parts of the garden woodwork ready for hopefully a good summer of usage!

    Now all we need is a good ol heatwave.

    Nice. We've been getting our garden done this weekend. Got a new pressure washer and have done about half of it so far, must admit that was quite fun to do. We have got the sun on us today so, here's hoping it holds out.

    If you haven't drawn rude bits on the patio with the pressure washer you're doing it wrong

    My hair is down to my shoulders. Not bad considering one year ago it was somewhere between 0.5 and 1mm.

    Loving having red wavy/curly hair

    Also, thanks. Gaming gives you a strong mouse arm apparently.

    Yes, that's 4MB+128MB in an Amiga 500 Plus. Oh, and...

    This PiStorm thing's pretty damn neat, even if it does uncomfortably straddle the line betwix real iron and emulation...
