Not quite....she's the daughter of half of Leftfield.

And she's incredible. Check out her performance at Glastonbury last year:

Agreed. She's absolutely brilliant, I feel like it's the best of 1985 again when I hear her stuff, she sounds like 'let the music play' or 'body rock' ..

Went to visit my storage facility to find my picture frame making tools. Brought a load of boxes back.
I'd like to find a way to stop using the storage facility - I would really like to have my own workshop to put all my tools in, but looking at rental costs, that's going to be impossible. It's a wonder that anybody gets started in business in this country, because the costs of property are just astronomical. I live in a state of constant frustration.
Don't know what the solution is.

trying to recuperate from pneumonia
Get well soon!

I surprised myself by doing some housework. I eased myself into it gradually, choosing to start with the glass shelf in the bathroom. This is purely decorative, consisting of a long plate glass shelf over the bath on which there are a few old kinetic toys - pseudo perpetual motions, lots of shells, including some which came with scallops on them originally an a miniature rubber-plant which has survived in the same tiny pot for fifteen or twenty years. It seems to tolerate both drying-out and compensatory over-watering. Anyway, the whole fixture is essentially just a dust-trap.

Cleaning it rewards the relatively small outlay of energy with a total transformation. Gleaming chromium balls and shells fresh from a renewed contact with water remind me why I used to like the odd combination. Elsewhere, the house is too full of books and records to afford much space for decorative frivolity. Maybe I will get a couple of those old 9v radio batteries and set those balls swinging again.

Slightly motivated now, I vacuumed the stairs and scrubbed off two tarry patches which I had just scowled at for months. They lifted quite easily. Then the skirting-boards got a quick going-over with surface-wipes. Well those are handy! While I was on a roll, the porch and library got a taste of the same treatment.

It wasn't really until I done all this that I knew what I was really doing: procrastinating! There is a second-round of the BT-dispute ahead and I should be refining and polishing my renewed complaint. I have until Friday. :fence:

Lying around coughing, trying to recuperate from pneumonia. Grateful I'm not in the hospital (or dead) but tired of feeling wretched. :hurting:

Finished off removing the kitchen ceiling.

Now only have to put up the new one after re-routing some power cables.

Training, block pulls and back assistance work. 127.5kg for 2 sets of 4. Last week it felt like an absolute grind to get the weight up, today it flew, super quick reps :D

Training 4 times a week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, the other days I'm usually fishing or doing something fishing related like tying flies :)

Edit: Apart from saturdays, I like to set aside a few hours on Saturdays to read :D

Gaffer tape ; Never fails.

(Only joking)

I imagine the 'fix' will involve super glue. (medical grade).

This kind of thing happens sometimes with stitches. You're lucky. The only ones I ever had were in my mouth.
