    Update for family and friends...

    Hey all,

    This ones a more personal update for family and friends, so if you're interested in the tech stories It might be worth you skipping over this post! There will be a couple of reviews coming up in the next few weeks, one for the Crumpler Sticky Date bag, and another for the Behringer Xenyx 1204FX mixer, so stay tuned...

    Well, I'm back at Uni in Bournemouth now, living in my new flat! I arrived yesterday and am still setting everything up! Most important things were done first; Photo of Emma, Computer, and Bed (in that order). And now I am about to start the mammoth task of sorting out my clothes, kitchen things, bathroom things, and loads of other general things that become necessities when at university! For those of you who have asked for pictures of the flat, I shall post them on Facebook as it is slightly more private than this blog!

    So what's the flat like? Well the hot water / heating in this flat is strange! There is no program for the heating, it simply comes on when it detects that it's too cold, and the hot water comes on when it's needed. Oh... That's if we've remembered to keep the meters filled up with coins!

    Speaking of coin meters, this is something which is unnerving me somewhat! When you pay your electricity quarterly or annually, you don't really think about how much you use, until the bill drops onto your doormat! Whereas when you have a little dial that is slowly ticking its way down to the big red 'Empty' marker, you suddenly become all conservative! Silly things, like turning plugs off at the wall and only filling the kettle enough for one cup, etc...  This got me thinking, maybe we wouldn't be in such a bad global climate situation if more people were on metered electricity!

    Anyhow, I shall keep you updated on how i'm getting on in my second year at uni, it still feels weird being in Bournemouth, and not being in Purbeck (Halls for my first year!) Anyway, now i'm off to clean the kitchen and bathroom, and organise all my things...

    Thanks for reading!

    P.S. We're about to go over the 5,000 mark for hits on this blog, so thank you to each and every one of you!
