An Aberdeen accent on a woman is very sexy, as is a posh Belfast one...
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.

Hope you get some shut-eye tonight, Sidders, otherwise Santa won't come! I've been using the iPhone Sleep Cycle app with great interest - it plots your sleep patterns, using the vibrations of movement or lack of it to determine whether you're in a deep or light sleep. I woke in great alarm last night (the graph shows a rapid leap from REM sleep to wide awake), having dreamt I'd let myself in to an old and now married boyfriend's house to have a snoop and then compulsively tidied up, thus giving myself away - wtf!

Interesting. I don't suppose there's a Blackberry equivalent :(

I've used a sleep tracker too on android. It can be a little fiddly to set up (you have to set sensitivity levels to make it work well) but what it can do quite well is wake you up within a specified time period when you are in light sleep mode as opposed to when you are in deep sleep - evidently if your alarm goes off when you are in deep sleep mode you feel far more tired and it takes you longer to get going.

Unfortunately my steam powered phone doesn't do these new fangled 'app' things so tonight I'll revert to the tried and trusted old fashioned remedy of getting totally wasted.

Does BlackBerry do apps? If so, I imagine it will have a variation on this one. It is fascinating and, like SL, I like being woken up by a 'gentle breeze' sound (having fallen asleep to the sound of waves) when I'm in a light sleep, rather than being startled by the alarm clock. Over time, it should tell me how much sleep I need and when I sleep best (not to mention how, if I fill in details on the comments section), which is all good.

Enjoy your Christmas cheer, Sidders!

This bloody rain! So, so, so so, SO, so fed up of it. Hate being cooped up indoors and can't bear the thought of sales shopping. I don't care if it drops 10 degrees I just want it to STOP! :angry:

might be flooded but looks like a great garden

I noticed the sandy gritted paths in CP Park were getting pretty channelled and grooved by what I assume is the lack of proper drainage from the parks slopes - especially near the kids play area

Those paths were a disaster. You carry the grit home on your shoes (or pram wheels), the rain washes it out in to the street at the Anerley Gate and, as you say, it's so easily eroded. Please can the CPPC put in a plea to bring back the Tarmac?!

Coming from Belfast, I recognise that!

Where a creche is when a car hits a tree.

Posh Belfast! There'll be posh Aussies next.


Excuse me! :P

People who elbow their way to be first on the train and then stop just inside the door. If you want to be by the door - get on last. Gah!

Probably been done before but I only got back as far as lanyards and had to stop before I started "and another thing". Hateful things lanyards - and I do events. If anyone can explain why you need a branded lanyard to hang a branded badge off I'd love to know (unless the lanyard is sponsored by someone else in which case kerching!)
