Times they are a changin

Bob Dylan sang:

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone

Fallout 3 can sap hours of your life. After doing all the hard labour required of me this weekend, I thought I'd treat myself to some Fallout 3. The Mrs was sparko on the sofa, so why not! This is my second time through, the first I played a goody-two-shoes and went off piste for hours at a time, blithering about. Now I'm playing a Pete at his most evil. It's a stretch, I know.

One in, one out

Kate's paternal Grandma passed away yesterday around lunchtime. A formidable lady, even after 90 years. She died peacefully in her sleep at a nursing home she loved to hate. Everyone's holding up well. Inlaws are on their way back.

New Year's Eve

Not wanting to go into competition with the VDM Christmas Eve, there's enough people knocking about to hold another party. Some Wii-ing, quiet drinkies will be happening over at ours on NYE.

I know Fish and Byrn are up for it. Who else fancies it? Accomodation available, of course.
