Dog walked and chores done.
No.1 has gone out with his mates to hang around and look cool in the town centre. So the PC is all mine for the next hour. Stacks of studying to do but I cannot be arsed.

A four hour round trip to Nottingham yesterday for the course and I was all but wiped out when I returned. The journey out is fine but the return journey is in the dark. I have terrible night vision and driving in the dark is fine so long as I stick to a sensible speed on the twisty A roads. Sadly, the twats behind me are over eager to meet their maker and are desperate to pass me. This involves overtaking on the brows of hills, towards oncoming vehicles, etc... I have no problem if they wish to stop and discuss it as my wrench could do with dusting off.What is it about these, predominantly male, morons who are such a hurry to shave 10 minutes off their journey? Perhaps this is one answer although this may also apply. Thankfully, I have four more days at the university over the next six weeks and any trips to Nottingham will be for pleasure after that. The city itself, from what I've seen of it, seems ok. I just don't have the time to look around as it is literally lectures, lunch, workshops and then drive the dark. Maybe a day out next spring with daylight and sunshine in abundance!
Someone at the door so...
