As I’ve said in previous blog posts, I’m back to being out of work and therefore pretty much broke. I’m also back to living with my parents for the time being, which has it’s upsides as well as negative points. But I’m not going get into that one. However, I’ve made a bad mistake over the last couple of days which will mean I get pretty much nothing done.
I’ll start be giving a quick update about my life- one good thing, one bad thing. The bad thing is that after just over a week, I’ve been fired from my job. I saw this coming anyway, so I’m not complaining, but I’d have like a little bit of cash from it. But the good news- remember that list I made ages ago about my favourite albums of all-time, and I’m after them on vinyl? Well, I’m one step closer- I’ve managed to get hold of a copy of The Idiot by Iggy Pop here on teh interwebz. They’ll be a photo when it arrives. Continue reading

As July rumbles on, it’s becoming rapidly clear that chances are it’s not going to be a nice summer here, weather-wise. It’s a shame, because I’ve got a few things planned that I’m quite looking forward to. Continue reading
I haven’t updated in a while- mainly because I’ve been quite busy with various things. I’ve started driving lessons again, for the first time in at least 3 years. The assessment went pretty well- with a
