    The first negative for Fittingly. The doors have pretty much zero clearance top and bottom. At first I though it was because I had put the whole thing together on the piss. But if that was the case they'd rub in the same relative places. But some rub top and bottom with no bow on the carcass pieces. So there will be some sanding and touch ups required. But small fish compared to the saving over going custom/carpenter built.

    Also, one of the doors for the top cabinets came with no drilling for hinges and screws, so will need to wait for a replacement. But again, I have no doubt they will make good.

    Ran out of paint, which is fine by me, as I'm a bit fed up of trying to align cabinet hinges for a bit.

    3 night a week, £1 a bottle of warm Tennents, two in each back pocket, one in the left hand, roll up in the right. 2% success rate trying to pick up someone you liked the look of. Roll around the corner to the Emerald for a Special Snack, half rice, half chips, chicken balls, peking sauce (off menu hack) and a can of diet coke. Stagger back up to your shared house on the Lisburn Road.

    I'm back over in Belfast next weekend for work (I now live in London but run a team that are mostly based out of Belfast). I lived there for 6 years 2000 - 2006 (grew up in North Down and then went to Queens). The improvement now from then always shocks me. The vegan options thing is very real (not that I am vegan, but I noticed it). There's a place I went to last time I was there, it's down near the Kremlin. A bar in a big old warehouse with a load of pop-up style food places along one side. By all accounts, a condition of getting a food place in there is that you had to have vegan options. It was great, you could sit and have your pints, then dander over and get whatever food you wanted, good variety too, cracking poutine. Maggie Mays up by queens also has a full, separate vegan menu.

    I do miss the old Limelight and Auntie Annie's though.

    Aye, I wasn't asking why to be honest, I knew it was because of the temperature change. Just curious if others had noticed a tangible difference.

    I'm only getting 3 nursery runs instead of 4, for example. I have got fatter though, so there's more than one variable.

    I'm finding that DIY is helping keep me warm. Most of the time I'm still in shorts and t-shirt while ms_com is shivering under a blanket (I did suggest she could do some DIY too, but that didn't go down too well).

    Plenty of work to go around here if you're desperate.
