Anyway, that's all in the past now. My system is clean, my money is safe, my report has been written up, printed off, and dropped into all my neighbours' letterboxes; and all that remains for me to do is my annual tax self-assesment, which was due in April 1st (but I was in England then). So I had hoped to have a bit of a lie-in this morning, but sadly, it wasn't to be: I had to get up before the crack of dawn -or almost- to stand a chance of getting 4 tickets to Dutch supergroup Kane's Malieveld concert on August 26th before they sold out. Mission accomplished, my sister owes me a whopping amount of cash...and possibly a cup of strong black coffee, too ;-)
Seems all I do this week is buy tickets...I finally got my ass in gear and purchased a ticket for the London Wireless Festival on June 25th, where I shall once again find myself in the company of _mysteria_ and freakspawn, and bogwitch, to enjoy the dulcet tones of Thomas Dolby, Bauhaus, Goldfrapp and Depeche Mode (again!). I've booked my flight and a day off work, but I'll leave finding accommodation to a later date.
Next, I'll go into town because there's a sale on funky-coloured blinds on and I want to see if any of them are for me. It'll be 9 years since I bought this flat soon and 9 years since I've decorated, and my curtains are starting to look decidedly tatty. The kitchen could do with a new lick of paint as well, but I'm saving that job for a time I feel less likely to fall asleep while standing up.
