They restocked the Stardew Valley LPs! A dear friend even offered to get me them as a present on the understanding I would get them a present of equal value on their birthday, which in effect means I can spread the cost over a few months. I’ve just added it as a fixed cost on my monthly budget, so we’ll see when the time comes what they would like, but yeah, that’s something I’ve wanted for years. If you haven’t seen them, well, here:

I mean LOOK AT THEM. I have my record player set up in the bedroom at the moment but I may move it upstairs as I try to keep that space just for sleeping. Wherever I play them from though I have to find a nice space to display that gorgeous art, preferably where it’s easy to get to so I can, you know, play the records too. I didn’t even need a mood boost right now as I had a reasonable day, this is all bonus.

TWO is advancing well. I hit target just after 10pm which is later than I’d like but still good, and the quality of what I wrote was also reasonable. I even snipped a quote to send to a friend and it got a laugh, so that’s reassuring. It’s now 75K so we’re on the home stretch, and I’ll figure out how many words I wrote of it for the month tomorrow post target, though I can tell you now I easily managed a 1,100 word average for the month, and without needing a last minute dash to achieve it. So all in all, I am feeling pretty good right now. Motivated at work, motivated in writing, and motivated in looking after myself. I won’t say I’m out of the woods, but if nothing else I can say I’m facing the right way.
