    What you up to?

    Today - Work a bit this morning as had to spend time at another school this week who had a failed server so making up time. Fuck all to do tbh. I'm meant to be here till 1 but will probs shoot at 12 if nothing much happening. Off to do some food and beer shopping after and buy a new SSD for my new PC build that is badly needed.

    Tonight - Mate coming around at 4 with a brand spanking new state of the art vaporiser, forgot what it's called but it cost £700 so should be good. Then Skinz (remember him from Visordown?) is coming over to write us some bass lines on his bass guitar. We have wrote some 80bpm reggae riddims and want some live guitar for bass as IMO electronic basslines in reggae just don't sound right. Will probs be up till 5am in the studio. Much jerk chicken and peppered steak shall be consumed from Roger Moores Caribbean takeaway of fantasticness.

    Sat - Recovering. Plan to do bugger all tbh as the weather is meant to be terrible.

    Sun - Pop over to see the old's and to consume my roast dinner. Then back to mine to start re-building my PC. I have W7 at the mo with 3 1TB drives that are all full of porn music, i've been waiting to get the album done before upgrading as i don't want issues when having to be under pressure with finalising tracks etc so have been hanging on to what i have. New i7 16GB W10 1909 build happening and am also upgrading to Reason 11.

    Monday - Finish off PC build and test everything out. Back at work on tuesday upgrading a few servers and diagnosing some network issues i have at 1 school that is driving me mental.

    Have a good one peeps.

    My lungs are already thanking me!

    My mate's lungs are fucked and he needs to find other ways of getting high, stopping it seems isn't an option. I'm actually quite looking forward to seeing what it's like. 700 fucking quid!

    Today, Sat in Manchester Terminal 3, on my 2nd pint of San Miguel, waiting for a flight to Billund.

    Tomorrow, trying to find something to do in Billund.

    Sunday, killing myself due to Billund induced boredom.

    They should have some decent Belgium beers there too.

    If you can find it Bob, try and get a bottle of Kastell Barista Chocolate Quad, IMO the no.1 dark ale in the world.

    WFH this morning but going into project office this afternoon for a "workshop". Half of us here in Uk and the other half in Germany. Everyone's really pissed off as its 3-5pm here which is 4-6pm for the Germans and Dutch. Most people are on site during the week then go home on Thursday and WFH on Friday - lots of the guys who were on a valentine's promise aren't anymore!

    Mrs GP has deemed that due to the weather forecast its deep clean / spring clean weekend. probably not a bad call actually but I'm still bailing out tomorrow to go over to Fowlers and Riders in Bristol for a mooch about and maybe purchase something essential for the Ducatis..

    Sunday - deep clean

    GP, still living on the edge.

    Exhaust started blowing badly on my scoot today. Think its the head/manifold gasket, so have ordered one up and will strip it down to see fi I can temporarily bodge it until the gasket gets here. If not recommission the F800R for use next week. Assuming storm Dennis lets me do something outside! No other plans as i'm saving my pennies to turn them into Zlotys as we're off to Gdansk in the week.

    Well as its 14th Feb, just a well. You'd rather have the scoot blowing badly than the Mrs blowing badly!

    Surely that's better than the Mrs not blowing at all?

    I'm off to the London Motorcycle Show on Sunday where I'll pick holes in other peoples classic bikes and moan that the new bikes look like "origami teapots"

    Themed rooms are brilliant, I booked my spawn and their cousins into a the pirate themed room in the Efteling.

    This weekend I'll mostly be indoors if the forecast is anything to go by.
