Rocked: two hour conversation with someone I haven't chatted to since new year - was really cool

Sucked: Christmas holiday cancelled, best friend facing possible paralysis and not allowed visitors in hospital, half term coming up like they haven't already had 6 months off school as it is

Rocked: news of a possible vaccine in the works. Mass testing being offered to our county. Curry for dinner. Everywhere outside looks lovely in the early winter weather. Wine.

Sucked: best friend still in hospital. Thought I saw a bear in the woods but it was just a Newfoundland with a big butt. Couldn't zoom with a friend today. Xbox not here yet. Ran out of wine.

  • GFX Card is in and working a treat
  • Amy has zoom drinks planned with friends on Fri night so hopefully I can fit in some gaming.
  • Getting closer to another bonus at work 4 weeks after the last one.
  • Found some really good modded servers on DayZ.
  • Finished watching Boardwalk Empire after all these years.
  • Also made progress on Narcos Mexico finally.
Sucked
  • Even with work bonuses all the bills and payments have wiped out my cash.
  • MOT coming up for my car which will likely end up costing more than it should.
  • No beer in the house.

  • Kids back at school and after 1 day of tears they are loving it again and its good to see them get some normality back in their lives. My youngest has spent over 1/3 of her life in lockdown so far and nice for her to get out.
  • Managed to fit in a little gaming time and made some progress on Valheim.
  • Nicer weather is around the corner and looking forward to spring and finally getting my garden sorted.
  • Seem to have fixed some crashes I was having on my desktop.
Sucked
  • Still a way to go before life gets anywhere close to 'normal'.
  • Going to have to spend a lot of money this year to get work done in and around the house.
  • Also need some new tires for my car.
  • Staff returning to office at work... I was enjoying working alone.

Rocked: no 'rona in this house so far - many tears during the testing but Josh did well

Sucked: ever since I had the vaccine, I've not been 100%. Hoping for less symptoms with the second dose

  • Finding lots of music to listen to lately that I havent heard in ages after we took the plunge and purchased Spotify Duo.
  • Good to see some discussions happening on the boards and excited to see what happens here in the future.
  • Game Pass has been adding some really good games lately.
Sucked
  • Most of the really good Game Pass games arent available on PC version of Game Pass... we pay the same price... :mad:
  • For the first time since I was around 5 years old there is only 1 gaming console in my house (Nintendo Switch). In the last few months I have sold 2 Xbox Ones, my PS4, my N64, a PSP & my Sega Mega Drive Classic. Doesnt feel right to have that empty space under the TV...
  • Quite a few friends have been told they might be losing their jobs soon thanks to the pandemic (not at my workplace).

I'm consistently profitable with my trades. I've made 4000$ this week. Better than any savings account I'm putting my money to work.
Bought a bench and weights, a bike and ordered a 3080 10G graphics card. So my home life is serene.
Going to the lake with my bud and we're going to be kayaking for the weekends.
Started a youtube channel with no views really but a fun vlog to make.

Sucked

Left 7000$ on the table with my last trade have to remember to tie in my trades.
Back at my mothers house after selling my condo.
Inflation is skyrocketing and we are entering a world shortage of commodities.

  • Spent the day with the eldest - did not get fleeced, for a change
  • Finally managed to book train tickets to Liverpool for August, plus hotel and cat cafe
  • Saw a friend I haven't seen in a while and went for breakfast, which was really nice
  • Going to the spa for the day with two of my close friends - my back is just crying out for a hot tub and hydrotherapy massage
Sucked:
  • Trainline keeps messing me about, so had to book tickets via my daughter's account
  • Not getting any PC time thanks to crazy schedule
  • Meant to have written for 8 combined hours for the author accountability group by the end of next week and I simply do not have 8 hours to spare

  • Got a little gaming time in for first time in ages
  • Steam Summer Sale is coming soon
  • Weather is improving again
  • So many games to play and so many interesting ones coming too
Sucked
  • Technology issues, my headset splitter has broken so have had to use Discord voice chat over my phone
  • Still not enough time in a week to fit in all the games I need to make progress on
  • Money has been a little tight so not been able to get as much work done in the garden as I wanted yet and unlikely to get much in the summer sale. Tempted by Horizon Zero Dawn before the sale even starts as its 40% off.
  • Hurt my knee about a month ago and its still not right now and some days im hobbling around on it

  • Youngest son enjoyed his birthday yesterday to the point where he broke character and actually hugged me of his own accord
  • Middle son has pretty much been accepted by the other kids/teens in the new high school age group he's joined. When he speaks, instead of mocking him, they quieten down and listen.
  • Pay day has occured and now I have money
  • Off to Liverpool for a couple of days with youngest and eldest
Sucked:

  • Its stupid o'clock and I'm not sleeping well these days
  • Eldest is going to fleece me, somehow, even though it's not her birthday we're celebrating in Liverpool
  • Doctor too busy to give me my much needed MRI results until September
  • Work is mental
  • Pain levels are pretty much over 9000

Rocked:
  • Kid has started going to nursery. Two “settling-in sessions” this week and then next week she begins properly.

  • Finally going to get some real respite after riding solo for nearly 3 years with aforementioned kid hanging off me 24/7.

  • Course is going well still.

  • A guy smiled at me yesterday so I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious.

Sucked:
  • Despite needing the respite to begin focussing on myself a bit more, I will definitely miss her.

  • Just got done being a “foster girlfriend” for someone. So nice to see them finally go off to their “forever home.”

  • I think I have an ingrown toenail.

  • MRI results show no real spinal damage, so possible that physio alone will fix the problems
  • Finally finished my extra working days so I can have more time off again
  • Weather has cooled down
  • Kitchen nearly finished
  • Friend's daughter out of hospital now after being badly hit by covid
Sucked:

  • Physio has been cancelled and pushed back to mid November
  • I. Am. Exhausted
  • The cat is still alive
  • Pain in my back means sleep is a myth now
  • Work ramping up
  • Body clock seems to think that 6am is an acceptable waking up time, despite exhaustion
  • Loooooong wait until pay day
