Holiday time!

// June 27th, 2009 // No Comments » // General

Yup, time for a holiday! I’ll be spending a week in North Scarle with the rest of the family. It’s a fishing holiday though, and I’m not one for fishing, so I’ll be out visiting different areas nearby, thanks to having my own car now! I’ll post some photos on here when I get back!

I had a team meeting today at work and I just couldn’t concentrate properly. I had one eye out the window looking out for a UPS van dropping off my new phone.

Now maybe I’ll get some sleep!

That means one of two things… it’ll arrive tomorrow… or it’ll arrive on Monday!

Please god let UPS provide us with an excellent service and get the phone to me tomorrow!

Nokia have been promising for weeks that, if you pre-order the N97 directly with them, you will be amongst the first to receive it, at the latest on the day that it’s released in the shops. However, after hearing about the pre-order troubles that the US had, where pre-order’ers were having to wait until after this date (and in some cases, weeks later) I decided to try and get a straight answer out of Nokia, to see if the same problem is going to happen in the UK.

Diet Update

Well.. it’s been a long and difficult journey, which started some time in September 2008 when I looked in the mirror and said to myself “You’ve gotta lose some weight, you fat bastard!”. At 13st 8lbs, the finishing line seemed so far away.

Today, I weighed myself, after 6 days of being under 22 BMI, and I came in at…. (more…)

It’s that time of the year again. Big brother has hit our screens for the 10th year in a row! It’s only been a week and a bit but it seems pretty good this year, although the housemates (understandably) haven’t fully come out of their shells yet.
