Pottered out

I've never been much of a potterer but I've done some amount of pottering about over the last few days! Apart from the blinds,curtains,lightshades and tumble dryer the flat is looking in great shape and though the hit to my poker roll is going to be a bit more than I thought ,it's going to be well worth it.

I've just built a toilet roll holder and storer and ( its a silver stand up thing)and can't believe it has to been unscrewed to get to the "stored" rolls.Hmmm DIY aint my bag!

The first night here the other night felt a little strange.I did have Nacho though and decided to keep to routine and let him sleep in the living room, which being somewhere new he wasn't too sure about at first.I put the gas central heating on ,popped his bed beside the radiator, and he was a lot happier when I went off through to my bed...until the curtain I'd stuck up as a temporay measure awaiting the blinds arrival, fell off and scared the life out of him! He slept in my room for the rest of the night!

I slept a little better last night, although my head is full of wee cogs and wheels all going the wrong way. ( copyright my mate the Big Chap)

I've an awful lot of mixed emotions about the whole split/move back to flat shennanigans and as Mair wrote in my comments section, I reckon it will just take time to adjust.I'm going to Ibrox tonight to watch Rangers first Champions League group game v Stuttgart and after that I'm picking Step A up from the ex's work ( she works till midnight at Chinese takeaway) and will be looking after her until the ex comes back.

Tomorrow night is the Gwen Stefani gig in Glasgow and I'm really looking forward to taking Step A and a friend ( or me if she canny get a friend to go!).I also pick up my curtains tomorrow ( aye,it's curtains for me)and tumble dryer and the new blinds get installed on Friday.

On the poker front thanks to those who made kind comments on my game and recommended moving up.I'm going to post a stats post soon and include my planned Full Tilt withdrawl which should leave me about $4k online.I may move some $$ out of sites I hardly use anymore like Pokerroom because whenever I look at my Stars roll of about $550 it seems to low to be playing $16 turbos never mind $27, which is silly as that $550 is only a small part of my overall roll.

Dd and the SJS ( San Jose Salmon aka Miami Mark aka Al Eleven) have suggested a live game when SJS is back home around mid October.Dd also mentioned inviting Juice and I think it would be a great idea to invite any bloggers/readers that can make it.In similar fashion to how BM and I began the bloggerment I think the best way is to come up with a date and venue and if you can make it that will be great.If not then maybe next time!I only say that because you can never please everyone and the lesson from the bloggerment was to stop trying to do just that and simply choose venue/time etc and see what happened.

Ok, game kicks off in just over an hour and I've yet to microwave my dinner....

Thanks Rob.Hopefully things will get better over time.

Exile: Just don't ask me to build a toilet roll holder/storer thing! Thanks too for the kind words.

Amatay: I'd invest your money in a surer bet like Northern Rock shares!
Seriously though I do appreciate the wee kick up the arse to get me moving.Whenever I feel I'm on my best game I'll be taking more shots.
