To the ‘burbs!

So, we finally moved out of an inner-city 2? bedroom basement flat to a lovely 3 bedroom house in the suburbs. The fresh air, the quiet, the lack of neighbours thumping up and down the stairs…oh the joy πŸ™‚

Still moving furniture, and sorting bags and boxes, more soon.

If only I’d known…

I had some old crap to get rid of; a bed frame and mattress, broken office chair, broken bike, old rowing machine and and an ancient TV. Couldn’t find anywhere to recycle/dispose of them so booked the council to come get them. They’ve been outside 2 days now and members of the public have scavenged everything except the bed/mattress…If I’d known dumping my crap would get rid of it I’d have done it earlier πŸ™‚

Cycling Journeys (Connaught Water)

Helena and I just got back from a 25 mile round trip cycle to Connaught Water (Essex)…I’d forgotten how hilly it was to get there, we’re shattered πŸ™‚

The image was sourced from The Geograph Britain and Ireland project as I forgot to take a camera.

Make the right mistake :)

Forgot to feed cat whilst making dinner for girlfriend. Depite the claw marks in my leg I still think that that was the best way round to make the mistake otherwise I’d have been smothered in my sleep πŸ™‚

Cycling Journeys (the work run)

I cycled into Helena’s new work with Helena this morning, which was fun apart from 1 unscheduled diversion, but on the way back I decided to explore.

This was not my brightest move; Central London, rush hour, suicidal pedestrians, kamikaze cyclists, and unobservant car drivers…thoroughly knackered now πŸ™‚

Two weeks (or so) to a new PC

My current desktop PC, Eveline, is over seven and a half years old now, the most recent upgrade is about four years old, and despite serving me well in all this time she is now looking decidely long in the tooth and starting to struggle with the newest games at anything above minimum settings.

I have been putting this off for nearly two years now, but I finally decided to bite the bullet and get a new custom PC for Christmas.

A friend of a friend had used PCSPECIALIST.CO.UK not so long ago with good results so I thought I’d give them a try.

Merry Xmas to me πŸ™‚
