Monday 5th February 2018
Up early,dog walked, papers fetched.  Into office nice and early too.  Home for about 5pm'ish.   Got a drum kit photographed and listed on eBay (£1 maximum final fees offer!). Did some more drum mapping.

Tuesday 6th February 2018
The usual.  Picked up Lucy on way home.   More drum mapping.

Wednesday 7th February 2018
Up early, dog walked, papers fetched.  Had a quick peek at the Ashbourne News Telegraph - quite a bit of rage about the Town Hall. Hee hee.
Waitin for the bus - need to remember 4 e &

Thursday 8th February 2018
Up early the usual.  Funny day at work taken up doing what I shouldn't be doing but that is how life goes sometimes.   Home for 5pm (didn't have to pick Lucy up on way home).  Tea then dog walked then more drum mapping.  It's harder than it looks you know.
Need to write this one out proper - Shoot Shoot UFO 

Friday 9th February 2018
Up super early, shave showered and walking dog early doors - bit of a fail as papers hadn't arrived at shop so needed an extra trip.  That said, Lucy wanted getting up at 6am and that was achieved.   Into office in good time - got some juice on the way.  Watched a ton of Gracepoint the American version of Broadchurch on Now TV - weird that you know the plot but its that little bit different!

Saturday 10th February 2018
Up early, dog walked,  Papers fetched. Did more drum mapping. Found a light for my music stand. Gig at Breaston. Not as good as I hoped. Oh well.

Sunday 11th February 2018
Up early.  Walked dog. Moped about a bit feeling sorry for myself.   Did a bit in the attic, sorting out my recording kit.   I am going to record the old Premier Project One snare and list it as they go for big money on eBay from time to time.

Lunch at the Cross and then watched Chips on Now TV which I have to admit I did quite enjoy even thought it was a bit of a  bubble gum film, sometimes that's all that's needed

Finished off in the Attic had a think about the fill from "La Grange" which is a triplet thing beginning on the hihat on the beat and then the two other triplets on the snare and then toms - I've been playing hi-hat with right-hand and doubles on the snare and then toms with the left hand - it's too fast to play consistently at 162 bpm so spent some time relearning to play it single-stick,  playing  hihat with right hand first time and then left hand alternatively - it seems to work although may take some time to get used to playing it that way!
