Sunshine-and-showery Saturday

The day started quite restfully, with Christopher and I (or is it me? No. Definitely 'I') making a trip into town; my coach season ticket entitles me to free local bus travel, so we took good advantage of that and his under-five status!
We wandered round the (now thankfully non-smoking) Arndale Centre in search of soap, salad, rechargeable batteries and a wallchart of the world. We were just over half-successful, picking up the food at the Tesco Metro, and availing ourselves of something of a bargain at Maplin - where we bought 12 NiMH AAA size batteries (perfect for remote controls and my cordless mouse in the studio) for ?13.

After a tasty vegetarian lunch (provided by Beth on behalf of Jude band-member David), it was rehearsal time, when we practiced three of the songs in our small repertoire. Christopher joined us on the recorder (kind of!), and the afternoon came to an end all too quickly.

Tonight, it's monster gratis band practice, with more of an acoustic style (about which I'm sure the neighbours are pleased!)

The weekend goes so quickly... just time for a couple of links: The world's smelliest plant is a good way to start. Possibly.

And to finish, for all you retro game fans, how about downloading some Abandonware... software that's over four years old, and no longer supported by any company? I'd be lost in nostalgia if I had the time! For now, I think I'm going to try and set up a RealMedia stream of tonight's studio session.

It most definitely is Christopher and me....you'd say The day started...with Christopher making a trip into town, and The day started...with me making a trip into town, so the correct form is to combine them to Christopher and me making a trip into town. It *does* sound awkward, but it's correct.

Sounds like a fun day, regardless....the pedantic Sunshine
