Downs and ups
Whoops - I haven't updated in a while, never mind though I can summarise my life in a few bullet points, if you'll allow me:
My Grandma died on December 3rd. She'd been ill for a while in hospital so it wasn't unexpected, it is still horrible though. That left me in a bit of a state as far a my Uni work was concerned; it still had to be done and I was most definately not in the mood to do it. It got done in the end though, although I was doing my English essay the day before it had to be in, not good at all in the state of mind I was in at the time
Grandma's funeral. Not fun (but when are they?) However, looking back on it, it extended my realtions with parts of Grandma's family that otherwise we would not have seen for ages.
Christmas and New Years. Spent Christmas with my family over at Grandma's side of the country. We usually spend it in Cranswick but obviously this year was different. New Years I spent going round the pubs in Driffield, good fun but Driff feels different these days, I'm just getting older I guess.
Read Jasper Fforde's two books - The Eyre Affair and Lost In A Good Book. Both absolutely superb thriller/fantasy novels featuring Literary Detective Thursday Next and her pet Dodo. Check them out at Amazon.co.uk
Also treated myself to a Geforce 3 graphics card - it rocks and is miles ahead of my old Voodoo 3!
