What's Rocked:
Fable 4 news!
Just got a fitness club in town only 10$ a month.
Enjoying the mod suite Bethesda has introduced to Xbox.
Finally got my surround sound up and running with one remote.
Taking visceral for anxiety and it's doing wonders for my mental health.
Met up with an old friend from my school days and had a drink he's going to help me get my Pc and invited me to join a D&D club.

Whats sucked:
Been couch ridden for a while and only just now getting better.
Both cars need to go to the mechanic.
Lost faith in Bungie as developers.
Have some sort of joint pain in my left ankle and an unusual high heart rate might have to see a doctor about it.
Currently penniless.

Rocked:
- My new mouse and case fan came in the mail, so I can finally start posting without headaches again.
- New mouse works great!
- Fable IV being in the pipeline is finally a reality again.
- Enjoyed my time with Kath over in Scotland.
- Crypto-currency is beginning to see another crash. <3
- Playing Deus Ex: HR again properly, I forgot how awesome it is, hope Mankind Divided is a worthy successor.

Sucked:
- Wishing I didn't have to say goodbye to Kath again, the time there just kinda flew right by. :(
- Crypto miners ruining PC gaming & building for everyone.
- The snow just keeps on piling outside, I'm sure all those kids love it though.
- My cat's eye hasn't gotten any better while I was away, still need to get him to the vet again and try some different medications.

  • Weather is getting better.
  • Saved decent amount of money since lockdown.
  • Should be able to buy new CPU and GPU in a couple of months.
  • Loads of new games to get through.
  • Finding more time to get on the forums and post while there isnt much to do at work.
Sucked
  • Lockdown, cant go anywhere, cant see anyone, just work and then home and dont even have time to game.
  • Kids cant go to school and we refuse to send them back early and put their health at risk.
  • Not much work to do at work at moment and that means the days are dragging.

Rocked: coffee machine. Is very nice. Could prove my downfall if I keep buying the little pods you use to make chococino with...

Sucked: Alan Carr tour dates postponed until next year, can't go to Liverpool (my favourite UK city) because the YHA has no spaces and I have run out of crisps. Which borders on traumatic for me.

  • No work tomorrow
  • Kids seem to be enjoying school
  • More companies have started revealing their 3000 series cards and the prices

Sucked
  • Still deaf in 1 ear and the specialist wanted to refer me to hospital but who knows how long that will take. So I am booked into a paid clinic next week to see if I can get it sorted but means it will have been nearly 4 weeks by the time it’s likely to get sorted.
  • Another thing to have to pay for on top of School uniforms, shoes, dance outfits, suits for college, dance classes, stage school, yearly bus pass and what seems like a million other bills. o_O

Rocked: snagged my preorder for the new Xbox - middle child will be very pleased!

Sucked: idiots who have potentially ruined Christmas by ignoring all guidance on covid. Yes, you who crowded the beaches and parks in August, you who thought a holiday abroad was "essential travel" and you who has zero idea of what mask etiquette is. Well done. You've potentially mullered everything for everyone again. *slow clap*
