A fresh new update

Oh, hello. It's actually been over a year since I last posted a blog. But now here I am.

Baby Daniel is bigger. Time does that. He loves running all about the place. He loves climbing things. He loves throwing things. He loves blabbering random sounds. He's in creche now, for 4 hours a day. A slight relief five days a week for Tracey, and one day a week for me.

So. Work. I got a security job, the one where the office is in Swords. They started by putting me in different places, mostly in the city centre. Penney's, Dunnes, Northside shopping centre, H. Samuels, sometimes even Croke Park, the Gaelic games stadium. But now I'm permanently in Dunnes in the Ilac centre in town. So come see me if you're around. I work most days except Wednesday and Sunday.

With the decent money I get from work (€11.05 an hour), I managed to get myself a PS4. A white Destiny one. Not a pro though. Not yet. And a Vita. I've also been getting upgrades for my Amiga 1200. I have an ACA1221EC accelerator, a gotek floppy disk emulator, and a little adapter that goes in a slot at the back so I can plug in a compact flash card. But I think I broke something and it doesn't come on. So I'm devastated. I might have a look tomorrow.

What else? Oh, I have Elite: Dangerous on PS4 now. I've been waiting ages for it, and I love it. I have a HOTAS flight stick to go with it. It's a lot more immersive with one. Official PlayStation magazine also gave away a unique paintjob for the Cobra Mk III, which I obviously got.

Oh and I also have a new phone. New as in a couple of years old, but still the best one I've had so far, even better than the decent Timmy M9. It's a Sony Xperia M4 Aqua. Only problem is the lack of storage, like Sony tend to do.

Anyway it's late and I haven't been getting much sleep these past few weeks thanks to Mr Wake-up-at-5am. That's Daniel.

So toodles
