That's it. That's the stuff, right there.

Many thanks all :) . I have been feeding tortoises lettuce leaves and generally not doing much, which is a fine way to spend a day.

The tortoises approve of you! As well they might; you're an awesome person.

I did! Had Steve visiting, ate tasty food and played video games, Graham gave me nerdy stuff and my mum bought me a couple of new tea flavours. Couldn't be better.

Woah!

Almost missed it because I was travelling most of the day, sorry it's late, but today was May's birthday!

Happy birthday!

OK Apparently the forum is an hour ahead of me, probably due to daylight savings, because it was telling me it was May's birthday at 11:30 on the 12th. But it's the 13th now and it's still her birthday!

Many happy returns, almost-birthday-buddy! I know you're busy moving house, but try to get some rest and celebrate today.

Actually, since I got up I've been doing housework!

I mean on most days I've either been waiting nervously for unspecified timed deliveries or going out somewhere. I think the place is cleaning up alright once I vacuum because it's not even ten and people are probably still asleep.

Oh god I've become boring. ._.

(actually, it's not so bad when one can jam some headphones on and blast their ears out while they work :P)
