    CANVAS GATE ! lol yeah it seems so my man.

    D'you know what's odd though? I swear sometimes I am mildly psychic. So I ordered that last year. Absolutely frigging ages ago. And of course, what I didn't know then was that I was going to be moving in March. So of course it never arrived. Sometimes I remember it and think "sod it" and other times I don't even remember five minutes later.

    However, last night I got this strong urge to phone my old neighbour, wondering if it ever arrived. I hadn't phoned her for about 6 weeks as I've been very busy. Any way she says no, nothing has come for me apart from a letter from Legal and General. So I say OK, we chat for about an hour and I go....

    About an hour later she phoned back and said "My husband is such an idiot. A parcel for you did come TODAY, but he put the card in your pigeon hole." which of course was rather dumb, as I've not lived there since the end of Feb.

    Went round the post office as soon as it opened and sure enough, one canvas bag. One which I was sure would either never arrive, or, when it did I would lose it due to moving. A bag I didn't even really want, but ho hum it can go with the rest of the collection :)

    "Your round."

    My experiment in making food happen from as scratch as is reasonably possible appears to be a success, despite having been ignored for two weeks while I was on 'oliday.

    The rocket next to it has gone a bit lanky, mind you, and on the other side are the two tiniest fruit-free cherry tomato sprouts you've ever seen. And the pot with the cucumber seeds in is doing *nothing*. Might find something else to put in there.

    I need more resolution, but the concept works. More resolution means more accurate fonts and lines.

    I am ready for my flight 2 days from now, a well-deserved vacation after a non-stop work for almost a year.

    Managed to make it to 0700 this morning without screwing up and breaking the Raspberry Pi 4 NDA, despite having worked with a larger-than-usual number of clients on content for launch day.

    Which means I'm officially better at this shizzle than a certain B2B electronics specialist wot sent the product pages live on Saturday (thankfully, nobody noticed) or some mainland-based blog I've not heard of before wot sent its review live at around 0500 this morning...

    Mental state being better than it has for a while. Reduced existential despair, and virtually no self-destructive drive. I don't want to put a hex on the whole damned thing but I think I'm happy to be alive.

    Knowing that I'm basically two days away from not having to worry about things for a bit, although I am currently a zombie due to lacking sleep and only see that getting worse for those couple of days.

    My class is in the afternoon, so I fiddled with the Lawgiver screen a bit.

    [​IMG]

    I cackled when it worked.

    I think that requires clicking because imgur and gif and whatnot.

    Edit: I refined it. And somehow made it better than it was while not really knowing what I was doing.

    Most people around me have left to go home, its very quiet and I don't have people sitting behind me chatting away.

    Also getting a tattoo on my leg this weekend, its technically a late birthday present so I'm excited for that.

    Finishing the Parasol Protectorate book series and finding myself absurdly happy with everything that transpired. It's that odd sort of self-satisfaction that everything will, if not immediately, then at some point, be alright.
