I know it's a typo, but day-um. How apropos.

If only all my typos could be that well played.

I've just been told that the project I run at work is being cancelled, and that there will be redundancies. No real details yet, but I'm told there'll be a big announcement next week, and that the project probably won't shut down straight away. It might be that I'm still here until the end of the financial year, or they might want a swift clear-out. Or I might get redeployed somewhere else in the company.

I'm hoping it'll mean I can get a payoff and live my dream of becoming a full-time self-employed writer. I could finally finish and publish my book, write all the Paul and George album/song features I'd dearly love to work through, make the (lack of) news updates a little less of an embarrassment, add more images, videos and smileys, properly do The Beatles' history between 1970 and the present day, and get better at promoting things on social media. I could do all that with a redundancy pay-off that meant not having to take paid work for over a year. This site has a lot of unrealised potential, but as I've said to the point of boring everyone, lack of time means it gets left from month to month with only minimal changes.

There are a lot of dots to cross and Is to T. If it comes to pass I could really ramp up the production here, maybe work up some other projects, and hopefully become self-sufficient with no boss! And, just as importantly, I'd be less of a stress-head and get to spend more time with my kids. Fingers are crossed...

Had a day off work today and went for a walk, I knew Paul was in London for the Radio 4 mastertapes thing (didn't get tickets), so I thought I might take a wander round to see if I could catch a glimpse of him somewhere before the recording at 13:30. I went to Abbey Road and then took the bus to his MPL office but didn't loiter around too long lol. Turns out my dad saw him for a few seconds while out on his lunch break outside St Martins in the fields (he was there for George Martin's memorial service).

Recorded A Hard Day's Night and Help ! onto a cassette tape to get rid of the instrumental tracks. (had to tack Her Majesty onto the end to fill it out though). The quality suffered, but it's better than getting up every two tracks to skip a boring instrumental track.

I cut my garden lawn, second cut of the year. 

The weather for the last three days has been amazing; blue skies and 20°.

20 degrees is so cold, why even bother mowing the lawn? Isn't it dead anyways?

He speaks in C, It's more like about a few hundred in K. I think its 273K = 0C
