Since you asked, I was evaluating two pairs of speakers for my friend who insisted on a proper two day demo at my home with my system. He is trying to put together a system. I arranged all the components to be delivered at my place. I had decided on the amplifier and cd player earlier which happen to be NAD C372 amplifier and NAD C542 CD Player. The two pair of speakers in question and I am in the midst of evaluating are Kef Q7 and JM Lab Chorus 726s. It's been an interesting afternoon/evening so far with all the equipment littered in my living/listening room and large boxes in the lounge.

Me wife was not very happy me playing with the toys so she left to spend the afternoon with friends :D

Spent my weekend so far mainly feeling ill, forcing myself to play through 5 games for review purposes (Taito Legends, Dawn of War: Winter Assault, Brian Lara International Cricket, Fahrenheit, and Fable), starting to write up review of Taito Legends and Ghostbusters UMD, and trying to play as much of Football Manager 2006 as possible!

This freelance writing lark is hard work, especially when your ill :(

I'll probably wash my car tomorrow when Sarahs at work...then might go round hers for a bit after...

As a temporary 'lady of leisure' my week days and week-end days are quite similar. Friday night - had tea then TV whilst youngest daughter swimming. Saturday - went ot the opening of a friend's chiropractic clinic, then into town for some shopping. Made the tea (again!!) and then out for a quick drink and back to watch some TV. Today....on the PCR forum, making dinner later and who knows what later on??

Hi Mucks

Believe me, this is resting!! My normal day to day routine is full on and hectic!!!

Can't drive till the end of October which will be a killer. In my humble opinion, there are 2 ways to go about my life post op. I could adopt the lily livered 'I can't lift a kettle for 3 months and pass me grapes on the settee' or just take things steady. A bit of walking punctuated with cuppas and carrying no more than a small designer carrier bag and being chauffered around is quite nice. I can cook basic stuff with my army of helpers passing heavy pans etc..... and still meet the doc's requirements!!

All in all and only 2 weeks post op I think I'm doing pretty good and I do sit and read/watch tv in the afternoon and have the cups of tea and grapes/chocs passed to me if I am feeling weak!!!!

Love

Gabs xx

ah, now that's better ... my fist impression was seeing you running around willy-nilly not having a thought for yourself ... glad I am wrong. :D

Enjoy! ;)
