Not especially. Two bedrooms and a loft conversion but that's plenty for me.

Cheers. It's semi-detached.

This is what I'm most excited about - glad I bought a decent drill a few months back. I can get a shed for the garden!

Needed a new small power bank and after some research I found out about this brand: INIU.

https://www.amazon.com/INIU-Portable-Ch ... B09176JCKZ

Really happy with this one. It can charge 3 devices at same time. The PD port is in/out even. Handy!

I usually buy cables and power banks from Anker, but this one by INIU was definitely a better choice.

Sweet! Is this your first Godspeed gig?

I've got tickets to see them in January. My only worry is another UK lockdown driving a stake through my plans, as of course, winter will be prime time for that shit.

Yes, it will be. It's a long way off and yeah, who knows what fresh hell will happen between now and then, but fingers crossed for us both.

- Stars of the Lid and Their Refinement of the Decline

-The Cardigans - Super Extra Gravity

Both on vinyl. I'm still a sucker for the pop/rock the Cardigans make. Also this is my first Starts of the Lid album on vinyl, it not only sounds amazing and calms me down, it calms my 4 month old son down as well. Proper find haha.

A new handle for an axe I restored.
I used it to split wood from a tree which was hit by lightning.
The tree was the biggest I've ever cut down and it was a profound experience.
The wood is for a winter solstice bonfire.

If anyone is in the states and wants to come out for the celebration, it'll be during the full moon directly before the solstice.

Oh, the axe head! I found it buried beneath several inches of sand and dirt next to an old barn that belonged to my wife's grandfather. It's almost 100 years old. I thought it was a good way to honor his memory, by restoring it and actually using it.

I would've preferred to craft my own handle from the same tree but it wasn't an option. Next time.

A new raising system for my work desk, since I am in IT, spend an inordinary amount of time at the keyboard and since I separated from my partner recently, I got myself an electric system that allows me to work sitting or standing.

Waiting on delivery :)
