Well its nearly a month since my last post, so perhaps its time to blither a little more.
It all feels rather christmas-like as I sit here gazing out of the window at the falling snow, sipping a cup of hot chocolate.. shame that its nearly March I suppose! I couldn't help but notice that at 5pm now the nights are suddenly light.. so driving home we actually have some sunlight. Its a little premature I know but for me that means that summer is on the way :)
I'm currently in the grip of a not-too-nasty cold – runny noise and looking a bit pasty looking but nothing worse. My sister hasn't done so well.. she recently got the mumps (and rather badly too) and then went on to develop viral meningitis. She's STILL away from the university after nearly a month and she is still not quite right but getting better every day.
I recently had to fork out on a rather hefty bill for my car which was rather unwelcome.. the annoying thing was it wasn't even a performance upgrade or shiny addition of any other sort – rather a bit of house keeping to keep things all in order under the bonnet. I suppose it makes sense to do it though.. a good friend of mine who recently started working up in Biological Sciences has just been given the price for the head rebuild on the engine for his MGF after the cambelt jumped a few teeth.. not good!
I'm frustratingly skint at the minute though but I desperately want a mac mini.. i'm really tempted to have a bit of a clear out at home and sell things that I don't really need to fund buying one. According to the Apple 'Procureweb' site education customers can pick up the entry level mac mini for £305 inclusive of VAT… its such a bargain! I want one NOW!!! :)
That'll do for now – must keep this blog more up to date though!
