Happy New Year all!
I FINALLY have internet access at my new house and we're all settled in. I'll be back on here as usual from now on.
The new job is very cool, lots of interesting challanges to overcome, though 5 architects vs me as the only engineer is meaning that I've got a LOT of work to pile through. I'm not overly happy at the 55mile commute each way, but hey ho it got us back down South, plus it gives me lots of time driving my lovely BMW. Well, lovely until it comes to fill it up that is. It's doing well averaging 30miles to the UK gallon, but doing 550miles a week just going to work is meaning about £400 a month in fuel. I've been looking to swap it for something diesel powered to save some cash (I'd really love a BMW 530d), but since the trade price for mine is a frankly insulting £1000 I'd have to put at least £1500 on top to get anything decent. As I'd have to borrow that money and paying it back would negate the cost saving, I'm just going to have to face up to being shafted at the pumps by the oil companies & the Government
Anyway, aside from that life's good down here. Certainly things are much, much better for my wife and daughter down here, which is a big part of why we moved back. I'm happier nearer my friends too.
The down side is music is going to have to take a back seat for rather a long time. After having to sell a lot of stuff to fund the move I'm left with just my cab, my rack case, rack tuner and wireless system. I'm working on funding new guitar & amp purcahses, but not until I've recovered finacially from the move.
As a word of advice, don't move a month before Christmas. On top of the obvious double expense of Christmas & moving, utility companies and the local Council seem to decide that you have to pay 4 months worth of rates in one hit, since they normally like their payments over 10 months between April & January
Anyway, returning to normal service:
Fuck you all, you cock-sucking knob-jockey's
OH SHIT SON
