    Nice day out, picked up a new guitar. Bloods a bit squiffy due to not eating all day, hardly surprising I suppose. King prawn vindaloo for dinner to keep the chill out!

    We had a really odd thing here this morning.

    When we woke, I got up to make tea, and peeped between the curtains - no frost. Hurrah! A short while later (2nd cup of tea), there was a very sharp frost in evidence.

    Brrrrrrrrrr!

    Lol,

    My mate bought Star wars memorabilia online whilst drunk, a few years ago.
    Recently my wife's colleague bought a cat??!

    For clarity regarding my purchases.. (The PA gear.) I had done a fair number of weeks research & even tried similar units out at a friend's studio..

    It's only the other night I got round to ordering this set up. The mixer & case has already arrived..:)
    Which is just as well I held off, because the active speakers came up as reduced in the sale.. I ended up saving nearly 150 quid on a 2.1 rig..
    All I wanted was some light weight, "bang for buck" gear.. It looked like I did the needful on the ordering before getting too hammered & left myself logged in.? :hilarious:

    I'm hoping to use this new PA in anger at a gig in 2 weeks time..

    When it comes to shopping for gifts. I tend to take a more traditional aproach..
    Sober & in control of a motor vehicle. ;)

    Hello friends, the cardboard boxes have been multiplying BG much much better today at 5.9. :)
    Unfortunately this year, I only have 25th December off. So I won’t be with my bf and my family for Christmas. Bf is off with his parents going somewhere for a few days and my parents said one day off isn’t enough time to see them. I have to post all my Christmas presents in the post soon. So I’ll be pigging out by myself on the 25th. I’ll get my night gown and red wine out. Last DAFNE session soon and 6 weeks and 4 days until first pump session.

    Wow Mei,

    That seems to be a rough deal over Chrismas... That's how the "hospitality" industry rolls. Revellers over this period often take for granted the sacrifices of staff at these establishments..

    Do you not have any single friends that could come round for a bit of mutual company?

    What about your shift patterns over the new year..?

    Morning all :)

    Great news on the pump @karen8967 once you're settled in you'll be wondering how you managed all these years :)

    Whereabouts are you @MeiChanski surely we can arrange some company for you, or friends to visit ?

    Very cold here, work has concrete floors so will be doing lots of moving about today, stay warm all :cool:

    The Gloves have officially been bought out - winter has finally arrived!

    A friend said yesterday they had parked in a frozen field early in the morning and then through the day it thawed out then everyone was stuck in mud trying to get out later - doah! didn't think that one through properly.......

    Soar throat and bunged up - just came on last night, BGs are slightly higher than norm, to be expected but will dose accordingly. Friends & Family Libre order had apparently had delivery attempted and we'd been 'carded' - errrr nope! delivery rescheduled for today, should have put a note out to say leave it in the car port but forgot however I'm not expecting them to find us as they obviously didn't find us the other day...... (we are notoriously difficult to find though....... especially if you can't really be bother to look!)

    Afternoon guys, it has been a busy few days, work, different things going on and a day out in London on Saturday too.
    An update on my eye screening last week, I received a letter from the eye doctor on Saturday ( that was quick) and I need Laser treatment in my left eye, so they will get in touch about an appointment with me asap:happy:
    I haven't been able to catch up with all the posts, so I hope everyone is doing okay.
    Started to put up my Christmas decorations today and feeling very festive :joyful:
    ❄️ ️

    Hello friends,

    Betes was 10.7 this morning and bf made it to work as well. He has been off sick for a while - he paid everything off and it’s the best feeling ever. With Christmas, I’m not close with anyone from work. But if you guys are planning anything and I’m not blocking your time with your loved ones, I can bring food and alcohol for a big food session. When I was at uni, I had a month off and now since working, I only get a day off. I’m not surprised tbh, my parents closed for two days when they had their business. I have a partial headache to plan my transportation to work after Christmas. It should be okay because major sales on boxing day and after new years. My dsn gave me hope that once things settle, I can get my consultant’s backing to do driving lessons and gain my independence. Anyone else stuffing their bellies with Christmas nibbles? I tried the galaxy vegan chocolate and it’s worth the outrageous £3 price tag.
