Yesterday morning instead of writing an lj entry I ended up talking to J about the sharesave savings schemes we've got going - they're changing the start dates & it just makes the whole thing complicated & do we cancel one or not or what, particularly as the option price for the shares is good at the moment & wasn't for the last couple. And that made my brain hurt - there's no obviously right answer to what to do, just several that are good in different ways. It'd be a lot easier if one obviously maximised the money ;)
Spent the afternoon playing Super Stardust HD for the first time in ages ... badly out of practice, but still got ~25million on one go, so was pleased with that. Knackered my hand/wrist though, I need to learn to relax while I'm playing, but if I'm concentrating on the game then I'm not thinking about my hand. Spent the evening shooting zombies & still not getting much further with that level on expert that we were trying on Friday ... we'll get there though, it's beginning to come together :)
And this morning we were up at early-o'clock to take the car to the council's pet garage, which is out in Claydon (so about a half an hour drive). Talked to the guy at the garage a bit as we were dropping it off - he said the car was nearly a write off! That's coz the car is old & thus cheap (worth about £800 he thought which feels rightish), but I'd not realised a dent & cracked bumper that don't actually affect the ability of the car to go would cost anything like that much. But apparently we're getting a new bumper & new wing, and it'll take them a couple of days, so I guess it all adds up. I'm glad we went via the council's garage, as I suspect if they were getting the quote from some other garage it might've taken some more back & forth. And I'm glad we let them know we need the car next week - it would've been hellishly inconvenient if we were suddenly carless.
