Hmmm … I could’ve sworn I had my TV’s Record facility set up … !
Not that I’m complaining too much: it’s actually nice to have one that works.
And … ? If things were seriously needed, I’ve got the back-up DVD recorder available.
It’s just mildly annoying.
And only convinces me I possibly need an extra bit of kit: in order to make sure I’ve got something …
The Shepard’s Crown — much as I want a copy — can wait until next week, I think.
Here’s hoping …

For me, payday is tomorrow. And there’s a few things I want to buy.
I have my eyes on a little set-top box that I can ad to my TV: to let me watch high definition TV channels.
There’s a ton of other things, too.
There’s something else, as well: as you can possibly guess.
I’m a long term fan of the late Sir Terry Pratchett: having read his work since the mid-1980s, when I first came across The Colour of Magic.
As you can imagine, his diagnosis with Alzheimer’s Disease was something I found upsetting: especially as it a condition my grandmother suffered with.
His death was equally upsetting.
I’m also VERY aware of something else.
Last night saw the UK release of his last book: The Shepard’s Crown.
Something I’m both looking forward to — it’s a Discworld novel, after all — and dreading ordering.
Sir Terry, himself, said — in Going Postal — that someone only died when his name stopped being spoken.
I’m very aware there are moves afoot to make sure of that.
But there’s a reason I’m dreading buying The Shepard’s Crown.
It means I know for certain that an old friend has died … … …

I’m officially up.
Up … about … and getting in the mood to go to work.
Which I can’t complain about, too much.
After all, it’s a daytime shift: which means I can get home in time for dinner.
And possibly some entertaining TV.
And a bun.
You can tell I’ve nothing serious planned, can’t you … ?
Well, beyond the bun …
