Well 2011 has begun and it has started with a bang. Well, on New Years Day, I woke up and helped a very amazing friend move in to his new home, yesterday, I went out with JP and his friend Sean, our other guitarist John and drummer Dave and had our first rehearsal as a band. It was amazing to just to cut loose and sing, scream and generally express myself on a microphone that way to music. It's been years since I had done it and was starting to feel repressed and a little isolated. I practiced so hard and went for it and was so tired afterward that I spent my time trying to go back to sleep.
Today has been productive as we spent most of it cleaning the flat ready for the year ahead. Every 6 months or so, we like to clean EVERYTHING and make sure everything is done and clean. During a major clean out, we will go behind the bookcase, guinea - pigs and other things, wipe the skirting boards and all the rest of it. Its not the most pleasurable of pursuits for a day, BUT it is worthwhile as it keeps the dust mite population down and stops any nasty smells or germs coming in and making our lives more difficult.
I have been letting my creative side slip a little on the print work, but I WILL get back in to that asap. its just been so all over the place these last few days that I just need a little time to recharge my batteries slightly. I did make strides towards that by getting plenty of rest and sleep. My lungs are taking an exception to a lot of this lately and its a little more painful at the moment than I would like to admit. I have a beast of a cough and its got its usual fruity wheeze to it so it could be that I have something on the brew. It wouldn't surprise me if theres something going on, I had a temp this morning and last night and was shivering like mad so it could be some kind of infection of sorts.
