The detail gets lost in retro posts. Even the cursory post about today missed all sorts of minor concerns which steal my time, like the arrival of the Mighty Boosh on CD - the original radio series, or the fact that my mobile phone now has a broken power switch, so if it runs out of battery or crashes, I can't get it to work ever again.
Luckily, I ripped the Boosh CD, listened to it while cooking and have established that there are 12 days before I can replace my piece of shit of a phone.
I also established that I need new shoes but haven't the time to buy them.
This is a busy time coming up for me. I have another night of no gig tomorrow, which is nice. Then I have gigs on Thursday to Saturday, with a gig on Sunday that I'm attending. I may start running gigs in Reading and the surrounding areas, which is a bit of a big deal. A lot of a big deal.
My house in Newcastle, which had a leaky ceiling when I visited it a few days ago, had its leaky pipe replaced but now needs the ceiling replacing. There'll be some guerilla DIY going on on Saturday, as I'm in the North for the weekend. I have a midlands gig on Thursday night, taking me to Leeds for Friday - working remotely during the day - for the Bradford gig on Friday night... then a quick jaunt to Newcastle on Saturday to sort the house out a bit, then back to Nottingham for the Saturday night gig which will then get me back to Reading in time for Sunday's gig watching and promotion discussion stufferooney.
Busy? Me? Nah.
Oh, and the project at work is hardly "just ticking over". Plenty to do.
I like being busy. If I could couple it with exercise and healthy eating, I'd be turning into a superhero. As it is, I'm rounding a bit, but hopefully, I'll fix that with a healthy summer. Between now and summer there'll be a lot of grafting and I hope that I may have time to do a bit more George Foreman fat-free grilling, which I've just started with and enjoyed already.
I might go and put my name on something now.
