Finally been waiting for this day for a whiiilee!



Was thinking of making a review video for it, but I am a bit unsure if I will put the courage to do so or not.
The Ukulele sounds great, a quality solid Lacewood product (with spruce top)!

LOOK AT THIS.... it's an ipod... and it's mine.... it's my 3rd one... I still have my first1 ipod, but the battery doesn't work anymore. And I bought some nice sennheiser in-earphones, they sound great.

I just got a new battery for it, so one day me and Tsa will open it up and do some surgery... and climb the "nerd" scale... but this 8GB is so great: enough space to have some music and an audiobook on it.

Yesterday I splurged on a second-hand iPod. I got a leather case and new headphones with it for free! And still I only had to pay Ä 50,-! Thanks Maruca! It looks brand new:

Unfortunately the new iTunes doesn't work on my laptop, but luckily I didn't upgrade the iMac yet so I can still put music on the iPod from there.

Today my new wireless thingy came. It also has a printer server. I need it because the old one has broken down. I haven't gotten it to work properly though. It acts very strange: it seems to want to connect only to certain computers. Even when I connect the same wire I used to configure it to another computer and don't change anything else, the new computer can not connect to it. Everything else works though, except printing. Very strange. Oh yeah, here's a picture of the thing:

Edit: today I sent the thing back to the webshop. I couldn't get it to work, no matter what I did.

I keep on splurging even though I'm jobless. Today I bought a new toy for Annabel. It was intended for cats but she likes it anyway. It's a furry round tunnel:

Boat stuff!



Two throw pillows for the cabin and a pair of anti-slip 'thermo-plastic rubber' shoes for me. (I slipped on the wet cliffs and got a nasty bruise on my thigh last time we were out.) Now I'll look like those fancy people from large and expensive sailboats that visit our coastal town during the summer.

So you throw those pillows at the fancy people? Throwing shoes is all the rage these days, you know .

ARRRGH! The biggest splurge of my life!

Barnaby! lol It's an ex-council house so it's not the most attractive building but it's spacious and energy efficient!

I've been a total Scrooge for the last few years to afford it because I don't earn an awful lot. It does need work doing to it but we can see past the grime and crap that the previous occupants left for us!

Congrats Greggis. The next few years of sweat equity will hopefully pay off, and then you can jump to the next level. It may take a few more years than it did in the past few decades for some of us, but staying put for awhile is not a bad thing by any means.

Thanks Speck, we got this rather large house cheap because it was a repossession. Houses that were going at a similar price that weren't repos were half the size so this is a couple of steps up from what we expected to get for the money. I hope to stay put though because it's a crazy process buying a house and I'm in no rush to go through it again!

I recently splurged on Doctor Who Series 1, 3, and 4 boxsets. Series 3 already arrived.

Aside from that I ordered a bunch adorable tabi socks (one pair of each colour).

Then I adopted a pink Bunny. I decided to call him "Bunny", or "Bunneh!" for short. ^_^

What a lovely bunny Jaz! I bet it's not as destructive as Annabel can be sometimes.

I bought my third Apple Airport Express yesterday. Because I'm still unemployed, I now don't have enough money to pay the rent anymore. Oh well. I thought I needed the thingy:

I was at the dentist and he advised me to buy an electric toothbrush:

I hope it helps.

Just purchased this this beautiful dress. I still can't believe my luck finding such a great dress for this low a price. ^_^
