Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

    stone carving. Quartz-ey minerals, not Oamaru stone monoliths.

  2. Get drunk, eat lots, stay up late.

    In my first new home now and just got the bond back back for the very last time, after 20 plus years of landlords and draughty damp cold houses. Have the last of the unpacking to do all weekend, but it’s a long haul. All the books and records are out of storage and now they need to be organised. Bookcases this weekend, music room next weekend.
    Enjoy your leisure pursuits folks!

        Thanks Yeshe, r0b, Bored and Rosy. Unfortunately I have indulged in one too many glasses of vino whilst surveying my new empire and admiring my new log burner among the many other wonders of a new house and have had a bit of a late and fuzzy start. Its the gentle concert programme this morning rather than some hard out electronica or heavy weight dub as my soundtrack today.
        How’s TheContrarian feeling this morning?

    Finish writing a chapter. The problem… how to avoid procrastination with sunshine, warm weather lots of events, internet, skype…… the list goes on
