I wasn't sure where to actually put this to inform you that I've changed my username. I realised that I'd never actually said hi in the forums, so thought this was as good a place as any.

I'll actually say hi too! I'm based near Glasgow, Scotland right now but have a very bad habit of moving around a lot. I was born in Canada, grew up in Bradford, England and then moved to Worksop, Birmingham, Dundee and now to where I am! Ask me in a couple of years and I'll probably be somewhere else completely!

As for my username. I was aingham69. I'm trying to get my own name associated with more of my Wizzley articles. I'm not sure if it will create a problem though linking to them. I really hope it doesn't but if it will, can one of the admins let me know :)

 

Thanks!

Alex

Welcome! I really enjoy your articles, no matter what name you pen them under :)

Happy new - old - name!

How can you be in Glasgow and still on-line chatting with us?  Don't you know that Outlander is being filmed just up the road?!   If I was you, I'd be camped there with a camera, and binoculars, and the phone number of a good lawyer for when I got done for stalking.

No I didn't realise that, Jo. Considering the weather and a very bad chest infection, I'm going to have to pass! We were going to go walking tomorrow but then found out the 49ers are playing at 5pm (GMT), so will be watching that instead--the only team and game that could have me cancel exercise plans!

I don't think it will cause any problems but I just wanted to make sure (I should have checked before deciding to make the change!)

And thanks, Abby. I enjoy your pieces, too.

The weather is due to close into the East tomorrow too. Rare but it happens. Rain and wind for Monday. Lovely!

I also have a *whistles-cough-wheeze* cold that appears to have outstayed its welcome, so you're not alone there, Alex. Hope you feel better soon. Never mind camping out in this weather. Sure, that's not one of Jo's better ideas!

Talking of whom, I spoke to Craig from Turnarcades yesterday, Jo. Not only is there a mini-Revival retro event planned for later this year (December) but Revival '14 is well into planning. Venue still Dunstall Park with many of the same reprobates as last year. I'll let you know as soon as I have a date.

Thanks, Paula. The whole house seems to have come down with this now--oops!

How is the stormy weather down your end? We're all calm and quiet up here, but Scotland wasn't predicted to get it as bad. We did have some horrid weather yesterday though, so it was a day on the couch watching the American Football game that was being played at Wembley and baking brownies.

Few trees down and a couple of lorries blown over. No damage that we saw in our immediate environs, at least. My parents in Surrey had a few fence panels out but that was no worse than they endured in the Great Storm in 1987. I think we escaped the worst from being so far east, to be honest.

Still coughing but I'm on leave for a week so all's good for now.

Hope you all get better soon.
