Cheers mate, unfortunately that was my last gig with them. My voice was starting to get knackered and was affecting my ability in Farseer so I had to call it a day. Top lads though and I love the music!

I thought station cat was gone forever as no one had seen him since September. Well, guess who turned up today?! I guess he doesn't like the cold weather �

Had to admit to myself that my sewing machine is well and truly borked so I went on Amazon and bought a new one to be delivered tomorrow as I had some Amazon vouchers that Joe's nan kindly gave me for my birthday still hanging about.

Two extra face-to-face interviews confirmed today. Gotta juggle preparing for them with housemate viewings though. But that's life.

Also, sister-in-law went into labour just earlier. Child #2 on its way.

No significant clashes at Hellfest is a big bonus. Taake and Megadeth play at the same time but I've seen both before and there'll always be another opportunity, and there's only a slight overlap between Terrorizer and Within Tempation, and Sabbath with Enslaved. Napalm Death play same time as Twisted Sister, but never liked the latter much so won't be disappointed at not seeing them, was only going to see what they were like live.

I'm making a killing selling my To Mega Therion longsleeve on eBay.

Also today's interview didn't go terribly and the agency that offered me the temp-to-perm job are cool with me registering anyway with the possibility of pulling out if today's place give me an offer, which will be by Monday latest. Got a coupla other possible backup options as well.

Spontaneous daytrip being planned to Flanders next month for Manilla Road. £100 all in, plus beer money? No way I'm passing up on that.

Work's Annual Salary Review is in! :D

Works out as an extra £16.49 a month. :D

Half of it's going on my council tax, but I won't spend the rest all at once. :lol: :yes:

I'm not going to complain as I wasn't expecting it but I do wish the management hadn't made a big thing on increasing our wages...
