as some of you know Ive had a bit of a shit run the last 2 years but life looks to finally be turing round Ive saved my brother's home and care package, Ive got my bills under control and I even found a stupid rare CD set ive been after for 5 years also £60 off because even thro the 6 CD's and one DVD were still sealed the  seal round the set was missing, the set arrived today and the seal was round the outer box so I guess I got a discount because the shop made a mistake. and as a added bonous I caught out my botheres sochil worker being a incompant twat and used evidence to prove how he fucked up and chost my brother £1700 best bit seeing as hes at fault if he cant fix it his deparment will be lible for the money he chost my bother.

Glad to hear it. Yeah, you've had a rough time of it lately - onwards and upwards!

Also,  you'll always be the first person to coin the term 'arsom'.

Good to hear your amazing persistence in the face of shitty events is paying off, CyberLeader - that's the doggedness of the true collector coming through.

truly arsomTM news. We shouldn't have to fight tooth and nail with the agencies that are supposed to be supporting us, but so often we do. Glad your brother's doing better and he's lucky to have a good advocate fighting his corner.

And congrats on finding your rare CD - gotta take time out for some personal indulgence to keep yourself sane.

Always great to hear when someone succeeds against bureaucracy, CL. Congrats to you on your great work. It sounds like you really earned those CDs.

I received a copy of "Judge Dredd - Mechanismo: Machine Law" in the post this morning. I had no recollection of ordering it, then remembered that I had entered a competition for it on Facebook some time back. Many thanks to you good folk in Rebellion. You've certainly brightened up my day!

Didn't expect to see this thread back on the front page for a while! Good on ya, Paddy!

I might add to this one while I'm here- my youngest (10) is doing a school project on the Vikings in Dublin, and chose to focus on amber pendants. The very last find from my current excavation, noticed as I was bagging up the final tranche of sieved material on Friday, was a lovely chunk of worked amber fom a Viking-era ditch fill - the first amber I've found for about 25 years. Nice bit of synchronicity, and nice illo for the project.

Turns out I'm a valid platelet donor! I'm lucky enough to have one of the more sought after blood types so last weekend I made my first donation of a bag of shiny gold.

I know the rest of the world seems to be heading towards chaos, but this really lifted me.

I can't do platelets but I did manage to give blood the day before the order to shut pubs. It's such a simple way to do some good. Three or four times a year.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

That's cool.

I used to donate but nobody wants my blood any more - well, except for Jim, of course...

It rather seems like nothing spectacular has happened to forum members of late- perhaps due to the general malaise and moments of abject horror caused by this pandemic- or maybe because we are now so old and grumpy that "nothing good ever happens".
 
So- here are two things that might count. Number one, after two years of suffering a frozen shoulder and the agony that has entailed, my wife has just messaged me from the hospital to say she has awoken from the general anaesthetic, did not die, and has been successfully operated on.

And number two, as I mentioned in the "what we are reading" thread, I was on the verge of signing up for a course in paleoanthropology. I have now signed up for that course. I am starting in September. It's only a ten week online thing, but I am ridiculously excited. And obviously, ridiculously poorer than I was ten minutes ago. But you know what? It's worth it.
