The life, on so many levels!

It's been a strange day. There are positives to it: I've picked up a new coat, changed my phones around so I have a basic phone (a Sagem MyX2, it's a small brick to me) on the tariff I desired (Virgin - supercheap texts to other Virgin phones being a major selling point) and I'll have £25 on the phone from the off. That'll last me a very long while.

"No more Siemens for me, I prefer Virgin" jokes may not start now.

I also picked up a nice coat, with more pockets than one could ever desire (well, six) from Millets. I could have waited until I saw Shaz (she told me she could have got me a discount on these things) but no matter, it was as useful a time as any to pick one up: the heavens have opened in Enfield today. However, Jess, I ended up with an indigo coat and not the Eggman-red design you found amusing.

Speaking of Jess, a present from her arrived today. It was a CD, created by OneUp Studios and entitled "The Very Best of Sega". It is a very pleasant album too.

A few negatives to the day also, though. I have to admit, my plan of the month has been an absolute failure. My intentions of spending lavishly have proved one thing... I can't; I live my life as a thrifty person, who will attempt to look after the pennies and set up for his pension in a few years' time.

How droll a failure that is, really. Boo hoo I can't spend money.

I also have a small hill of work to do here, everything returned today to detag. This shall leave me with an interesting hour and a half before I head for home. Time to get started!
