Discovered a rather good beer shop in West Bridgford.

All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Finally got the rest of my 'redundancy money' from the job I got axed from over a year ago! Now I have a clear credit card and a nice new Les Paul :)

Literally 5 minutes from home. Just felt my bank account twitch.

Found out about a new pub in Nottingham

http://www.thenedludd.com/

From the website, it looks promising.

The cat is currently curled up asleep next to me on my bed. This is the most time we've spent in the same room since she arrived. I'm obscenely happy right now.

It's impossible to be sad around cats. They just switch a certain part of your brain off.

Thing is if I had a cat I'd like, not be sad, but then never strive to do anything productive.

We got the entirety of our deposit back from our old estate agents. Nice little chunk of money to dump back in to my savings (rock and roll).

Missus came to mine the other day wielding lots of meat she bought from her local abattoir. I love cheap, delicious meat. And now my freezer is stocked :D

Finally moved the blueberry, plum, elderberry and blackberry wine from the fermentation bin, pressed it and it's now settling in the demijohn for a few weeks. It made over a demijohn's worth so I had a large glass left over to sample its progress. God it's tasty! All this is in preparation for the apples and a few pears collected a couple of weeks ago, to be pulped by my Dad and dumped in the fermentation bin. Might mix in some damsons too.

Mead also needs bottling up soon as it's finished working and is settling nicely.

Last week in Reading and in my current job. No more 7am flights, no more living in a hotel and actually getting a semblance of a social life back!
