Old Friend

Moved! (and now the aching begins....)

If any of you *ever* see me about to buy something which isn't food, drink or a gift, you have my permission to hit me hard.

One thing that moving this weekend has etched itself even further into my consciousness is that I have *way* too many things. And heavy things at that. Between books, CDs, Boardgames, Books, DVDs, Books, RPGs, Comics, LPs, Books, Videos and, er, more books and RPGs I am now amazed that the old flat really could hold them all and no one is suffering from too much back ache.

The new house is absolutely lovely though. It is spacious (well, will be once we empty all of the boxes currently spread across the living room), and shiny and new, has a great powerful shower, a massive kitchen full of mod cons, a garden (admittedly it's concrete but I've not had any garden for years and am *soooo* looking ofrward to throwing BBQ's over the summer!) and has a local newagent opposite and a row of small little shops and restuarants a few yards down the road for extra supplies/emgencies.

The one thing it doesn't currently have is a phone line though (or a TV ariel come to think of it) but that should be sorted in the week. Until then though we're only contactable on our mobiles and will only be checking emails/LJ at work (I've stayed late tonight to catch up on LJ!).

The new house is also turning into a hotbed of industry planning with Dave and myself (Nightfall Games and Cubicle 7) and Sasha (Pelgrane Press) all dreaming up new ideas to conquer the universe with ;-p

Hope to write more soon... take care everyone!

Terry Pratchett and Stephen King Hardbacks Looking For a New Home...

One instant casualty of my realisation of having too much stuff is that I'm going to offload all of my Terry Pratchett and Stephen King Hardbacks.

I have an almost complete set of Pratchett's (Discworld and others) and a smuttering of King Hardbacks (mainly Club Editions I think).

Most of the books will have a stylised 'A' stamped in the front which stems back from my days of being the Angus Lending Library to friends ;-p Apart from that they are generally in near mint condition.

AND THEY CAN BE YOURS!!!!!

If you want one please contact me either on email, mobile, at work or leave a message here along with the titles your interested in. If I have them they can be yours for a donation which I'll then send with all other donations to a charity of my choice.

Any remaining books will be taken down to Oxfam or Cancer Research in Finchley Central.

If you don't live in London I can always mail the books to you but this will involve you paying me the postage costs.

Hope someone is interested, just let me know folks!
