Dear Blog,

Hope things are going well Scar. And well done Ras - more cider funds? Haha authentic Thais - hope the meal was nice if you did go Matt!

Good time up in London yesterday. But my word, you forget how much they charge for alcohol in some places! More sleep needed now I think and then back up there later today.

When will I study? ...

Dear Blog

I hope they are too, but by the sounds of things she's dual it up good and proper. not just the clean break they made it out to be but kinda smashed, bits of bone too small to fix in place, an extra hour of surgery, done all they can cant move her had to the side and isn't allowed to leave till she can. Looks like it will be Monday before she is home at the earliest.

If her employers think a few kind words and a crappy flower are enough to stop them getting sued then they can think again, this is going to court.

dual, need a drink.

Dear Blog,

How much memory do you have in there at the moment and how much would you have in total if upgraded? I've not been running into any problems with the 8GB ram and given the high price I don't plan on upgrading for a while, I don't think it's worth the money.

Dear Blog,

6x1gb sticks and I am planning to order 3x4gb sticks
I believe I can get at least £60 for the 6 sticks so it will cost me an extra £120 to upgrade.

And the next upgrade will be a 64gb SSD drive... this one is got good price and speeds http://www.ebuyer.com/product/225415?ut ... m=products

Dear Blog,

After spending all Friday evening in London and getting to sleep at around 7am Saturday morning I felt quite rough on the tube and train home yesterday. BBQ in the evening was alright although didn't really eat much. Still pretty tired as I had to wake up for work in the morn.

Off to the supermarket now for supplies. No alcohol, just food.

Dear Blog,

Lovely and sunny here in the back of beyond. Just to say I've finally had my Nandos virginity broken. Round trip of 56 miles but it was pretty good chicken and worth it, not as hot as I'd been led to believe by some people. Thought I'd err on the side of caution and had a 'Hot' half a chicken and 'Very Hot' wings. Next time I think it'll be Very Hot all round. Not a patch on the home made pizza's we made the other day, now they did burn twice!

Dear ian,

I like the medium spicy chicken with peri peri chips! DEF get the chips!!! With extra powder!

Tho "chilli's" takeaway on great ancoats in manchester really does give them a run for their money on the chicken burger stakes!

Got to say that it really depends on who's the chef on the day you visit. I've had lemon and herb chicken that's been fairly spicey and mild that really was quite spicey.

Back from Morrison's and my, was it busy! Nearly caved in a bought more cider but refrained! Saving it for the festie at the weekend.

Dear blog,

Not had the henneys yet. Grab yourself a Sheppys old vintage 2009. £1.38 at sainburys. 7.8% and 3.7 units per bottle! Awesome!

Although i still favour the simply awesome Aspall premier cru.. But will be adventurous for the tri celebrations. and crack out a Nyetimber cuvee 2005. which is basically a very good english "champagne".

And got exactly £40 in the champagne fund for xmas now so we can toast in the festive season with a nice bottle of bollinger.. :P
