Work have accidentally overpaid me for the last 3 months. They've decided it's easier to just let me keep it. It's not a massive amount, but every little helps.

Well, as in for a minimum of 6 months as per the usual shorthold tenancy agreement you get in Bristol. Gotta wait for this guy to send me some deetz so I can set shit up with the landlord.

Being able to reduce my walk to work by 15-20 minutes is gonna be so sweet. In an ideal world I'd be right in Cotham/Clifton where half my mates are but that's really not cheap unless you want a ratty single-glazed bedsit with communal loos etc. Perhaps when I'm really earning I'll be able to gravitate closer to those parts (unless I decide to move to a new city), but where I'll be after this move, heading out on the piss isn't gonna be some massive shoe-destroying quest anymore and that's a start.

Y'know what, I completely forgot where we went last time you were in Bristol. I know we started off at the spoons in town but can't think where for the life of me we went after that. I can't actually explicitly recall us being at the Hatchet or Gryphon...

Went to the Salutation and met with a load of people not seen for months, drank Leveller ale and ate cake.
I don't suffer from insanity, I'm quite happy with it

We went to the Hatchet, and decided to call in on the Gryphon on the way back but they were 'closed.' Actually what had happened is we walked in on a lock in and they forgot to lock the door, so yeah, there were a load of what I imagine to be usuals sitting around the bar being as quiet as possible :lol: . I love both pubs, I think they're ace.

Hardly, considering they are friends and they haven't played here since December.

I went cycling with my mum in the sun :D It's annoying that she's so much fitter than me considering she's almost 50 and I'm almost 20, but it helps me push myself at least.

Got some feedback from a coach on the roller derby team (Sorry; I know Im turning into Amy here). I am apparently coming on really well and a positive influence to rest of the training group.

Nice ego boost there!

I keep missing the burger weeks they have, only caught it once or twice. The Sunday roasts are fucking brilliant, spot on with the flavours.

Why I think Birmingham is a dead city. We have Scruffies and the best thing you can get in there is an STI off a toilet seat. Provided you can find a toilet seat that is, the last time I was in there, someone had stolen that.
