Went to a place called Topgolf. Its effectively a jazzed up and a cool driving range! Never been before but have been to driving ranges and played golf! Im pretty sure golf used to be just for the older fellas but everyone goes to this place! Also had a lunch too. Music was far too loud in my opinion but i guess thats trying to cool up golf for the youngsters.

Had a great time would happily go again, very clever unsure how the system works, the blls get registered to you and the holes read your ball and give you points. Ill be honest though i was just trying to smack it, i got a nice 179yard hit! The bloke next to me got further and got 16 points in the furthest away hole, but he looked a bit embarssed as his misses was literally wiping the floor with him! She was hitting some sweet hits!!

having one of those days. nothing sees to be going right and I'm not ashamed to admit ive made a few mistakes myself. just silly little things but making it all much harder than it needs to be today, I think its coz I'm a bit swamped after having last week off. haste makes waste I suppose. bugger

I pretty much finished my latest pedal board project last night. Ill get you a pic, for now I'm happy with it, covers all the bases I need atm and isn't overly complicated as I don't like relying on effects.

Edit: here is said pic

Today i sent my HJC RPHA 11 lid back to Manufacturer as my front vent has got a nice little crack in it and also is causing the vent not to open or close. Only had the lid for 16 months and also wasnt even touched through the whole of the winter so not too happy its got a crack in it. But with a 5 year warranty its easy enough to hand back to repair or replace!

Just got in from a trip down to DMC in the car with a large and heavy box of standard parts for the MT-10 (which has already gone to a new owner) and picked up the standard seats for the GT.

Trying to get through to the doctors. The reception has a 30 minute window in the morning for you to book an appointment for that day.

wondering if I am in the 2 week wait of shame, very odd incident with a speed camera in the car this morning, was heading up towards a forward facing one that I pass day in day out, was doing 30, hadn't even reached the markings on the road yet, no one went past in the opposite direction and it flashed, so dunno if it was just a fault or if I'm in for a fight coz I know I wasn't speeding :/

She didn't think you were a bit of a weirdo for taking her photo out of the blue??
