Had a pretty busy week last week! Monday we headed over to Blackpool to see the lights – I’m sure they get slacker each year… I remember the North end used to have loads of big displays at the roadside but there’s only about 10 or so now. Maybe it’s cos I’m getting older and everything seems much bigger and more fascinating when you’re younger! Mini-MaFt enjoyed himself even though it was flipping freezing!

Tuesday was Niece-C’s birthday party so that took up the best part of the evening then the day after was her actual birthday – so, again, another afternoon taken out! Working from home is great as it meant I could finish early in the afternoon then just make up the hours later in the evening!

I’m also enjoying Firefox 2 – particularly the in-line spell checker so as I type here it underlines spelling errors! Great stuff!

Then, my free time this week has been spent sorting out the stuff for recording the CD on Saturday and getting music sorted out for PW2… Busy busy busy!


Ta-ra for now, I have to get back to work 😉

Today as I was walking around town for a bit I noticed more and more people walking round with music blasting out from their phones. Well, I say blasting, it’s hardly loud – just more of an annoyance.

Back in the day the kids had ghetto blasters perched on their shoulders – they looked like complete tits but at least you could make out what music they were listening to. These phones may be alright as music players when you have headphones attached but through a crappy little speaker it’s just pointless.

Maybe I just don’t understand, you know, with not being part of the MySpace Generation – I never really got into MySpace and I doubt I’ll ever get into listening to music in poor quality either…

Much cooler than hanging a phone around your neck…
