Up early. Decided I didn't need a shower as had had a bath on Sunday (Squeeze lyrics, anyone?). So thought I should be a bit early with thing but rose from bed at 5:30, took dog out, spent ages scraping motor. Papers and then into office early doors. Practice up in the attic worked on the UFO shoot shoot transition into Thin Lizzy's version of Bob Seger's Rosalie

The usual - up early dog walked, good day in the office back for tea-time. Dog walk and practice up in the attic worked on Bad Co.'s Honey Child, Jailbreak and Waiting for an Alibi by Thin Lizzy then Dirty White Boy by Foreigner - all tickety boo and worth spending a bit of time on.

Up early, dog walked papers fetched, work done and dusted back home for about 5pm. Tea and dog walk. Then up in t'attic corked on Gary Moore Walking by Myself and Oh Pretty Woman endings - all good stuff.

A rude awakening at 4:30. Phil van won't start can I take him to work. No need we got it going so back to bed for half an hour. Full of ruddy cold. Did a bit of research into drum mapping in Cubase and got the problem where sometimes the hi-tom triggers a cymbal on some preset kits in groove agent sorted by mapping the inbound midi note to a different outbound one. Also mapped rimshot to sidestick for La Grange intro. Worked on ZZ Top's Waiting for the the bus into Jesus just left Chicago and what have you.

Went to bed early last night so woke up at 4 o'bloody'clock. Never mind not getting up until 5pm then dog walked and into the office all nice and early - proper cold -3 celcius when I took pooch out. Into work nice and early - legs getting a bit achy - could be a bad sign.
Not allowed to go in the drum attic tonight so might work on getting more practice material sorted out.

Well, started off miserable enough. Chucking down with rain and full of cold what a perfect combination. But... played golf for first time since before Xmas, started off hideously with an 8 on the first hole but by third hole everything was okay again. Had opportunities of various degrees of difficulty for two on three of the par threes which was nice. Might be playing next Saturday as well.

Still feeling super rough. Up at 5am same as Saturday. Dog walked. Read me book. Lucy football at Etwall at noon. Played well and got a 3-1 victory which was nice for them. Got home up in attic and took some pictures of a snare drum I've had an not used for a number of years to list on eBay. Took Lucy to see "The Shape of Water" which she wanted to see. It wasn't too bad. Only 20 people or so in the cinema on third day of release doesn't sound very good!
