Monday 26th December 2016
The usual routine of getting the papers and dog walking continues!   Did a load of drum tuning with a new gadget what I got - I don't know that I've got the hang of it yet but we keep trying!!

In the office again for another day of fun!   Got all the music gear put away so that needed doing  also brought me dums from 32 year ago home.   Will get them up in the attic at the weekend.   Tuned up the 10 and 12" tama toms again - watched a guy on t'interweb doing it and they sounded mint.    Watched some more Wayward Pines - one episode to go of this quality stuff!

Up at 4am due to going to bed early last night, I think.  Lay awake until 5:20 then took dog out.  Got to be done.   Into the office for 7.45 after stopping off at Tesco for Rhys' birthday stuff.     Bought me Xmas present from off the internet some recording gear for me DrumAttic - will be in trouble with the missus no doubt but she did okay some of the expenditure...

Saturday 31st December 2016

All the stress comes to a head on Christmas day but once it's done it's done!    Got some ace prezzies and had too much to drink and eat as always!!  Never mind.
