Feeling much, much better, and actually having today and tomorrow off anyway, I decided to spend the day wandering round the shops. You know the type of wandering, the type you have to do on your own, because you are the only person who wants to look at the type of things you want to look at… clear as mud?

Put it this way, I wandered round the shopping centre, bought a new pair of jeans and a t-shirt, bought a couple of magazines (Q and a PC one if you must know), went for a coffee and lunch at Cafe Crema in Hamilton (best coffee and a delicious chicken pesto and cheese pannini), bought a house warming card for my mate Ian (who I am helping to move tomorrow) then off to Uddingston’s model shop.

No I wasn’t buying Helena Christensen (if only!) but new tyres and an upgraded engine for my remote control car.

Then onto Comet to buy some batteries (kill half an hour playing Timesplitters 2 and another 20 minutes looking for a new DVD player), the pet shop for some bird food, and then it was time to pick up Louise.

Doesn’t seem like much, but it included a long perusal of the magazines in WH Smith (who must carry every magazine published and a few that aren’t), and a stop back at home to drop off some bits and bobs, and whilst I was there I found out that the DVD player I’d sent back for repair was beyond that, so I was given a refund.

Right. I’m off to play with my remote control car, install Windows Media Player 9 and see what all the fuss is about, ohh yes and install Half-Life which I picked up for ยฃ10 (including Counter Strike and Opposing Force add-ons!).

Ohh I’m sorry, how are you?
