Socoder -> Off Topic -> Keeping in Contact

Say something, let us know you're ok!!

Lately I've started to notice my "IRL" friendlist is somewhat minimal.
Being stuck in the house, not being social, doesn't help.
I have a list of contacts that I oughta be staying in touch with, who for reasons of their own, all seem to avoid Facebook and Twitter.
I also have a few mates from College who are obsessed with ONLY communicating through email, like they're stuck in the 90s or something!!

So, realistically, a whole lot of my contacts are email-only, and due to my lack of constant emailing, I'm starting to drift away from them.
I've contemplated setting a monthly reminder to myself, then doing like a monthly "jays events" email that I can mass-email them with..
.. But that's so impersonal.

... I just need to remember about people, and try my best to keep in touch.

I'm so shit at doing that!!

How is everyone, here?

Doing ok, I hope.

Let us know, below.

Well, I'm still alive. Constantly knackered, but alive.

Friends? In real life?

I'm not sure I have any. I mean, I "know" some people, but that's about as far as it goes.

I'm pretty much good... Just general life annoyances nowadays, but overall... Yeah, I cannot complain even though I do!

I was out last night with a few mates for an Indians, then proceeded to the pub, good night... There's a band playing in my local tonight, punk setup, not my thing so, I decided to just nab a pizza tonight and chill... Playing golf tomorrow, looking forward to that.

Erm, my bitbox came this week as well, haven't opened it yet, but, I'll be playing with that over the course of the week, and, erm, yeah... That's me... Pretty much back into my old setup since the bot op!

Back in the old dart, I had a close nit group of mates... but as they found girlfriends everyone started to drift away from each other in some degree. Which is natural.

Then I moved over to Oz to be with my girlfriend it was really hard to keep in contact with them...

Yeah, things are a-okay. Feeling fairly balanced at the moment, which is nice.

Just doing the usual, laying with the kidlings, coding some ROMs, watching some youtube / netflix and enjoying spending more time outside now it's warmer.

Money is tight as always, but managable-ish. Been off dog walking with kids running about all over the place today. Nice to be in a field as opposed to at a desk for once.

Still feels strange being employed as opposed to self-employed at times, but I'm kept busy at work, which is cool.

As for being Okay... yeah guess so, its been a crazy few months.

Just before Xmas, my MIL had a break down due to going off her antidepressants!

She had to go to a mental ward hospital and was in there for 2 months, then she was offered ECT but declined and went home for 6 weeks... she then took an over dose of sleeping tablets, which got her back into the hospital .

Shes now been having ECT and is a lot better!

Its been pretty tough, but there is light at the end of the tunnel!

Oh and we need to redo our paving... which looks like it'll cost $7k to redo the existing paving or $16k for concrete!!!

Fooooookkkkkkkk!!!

That's about 3500 in english snots!!!

Fooooookkkkkkkkkk!!!

If you lived in Durham, I would've popped over on weekends to fix it, probably cost you a few hundred on materials and the hire of a whacker plate, obviously I would reuse the blocks that's there... Jet wash them first before lifting them to give them a good clean.

As long as you had beers for the end of the day, I wouldnt of minded!

£3500

Foooooookkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!

Still alive over here, just very very busy trying to get my final university project finished for the deadline next week. But once that's done, I'm done forever! And maybe will then have some time for my own coding projects...
