...has been quite a good one. Got quite a few CDs ripped to iTunes (with the iTunes library folder sitting on one of the multi-Terabyte external hard drives we've now got, I can do that without clogging up space on my MacBook) and some video files also shifted off the CD-Rs/DVD-Rs they were stored on and onto the hard drives. I plan on shifting away from physical media this year. :-)

Whilst waiting for the various discs to rip/copy etc., I pottered around the lounge, tidying a bit here, a bit there, shredding the "to be shredded" paper pile, taking stuff down to the recycling bin...the result being that the lounge, whilst not perfect, is looking miles better than it has done for quite some time. Tomorrow I might run the hoover round the place.

Also sorted out some paperwork, putting some appointments in my Calendar.

Am feeling properly organised.

Rounded off the evening with a triple bill of University Challenge, Only Connect (which felt like I'd accidentally tuned into the bizarro subtitles at the start of Monty Python and the Holy Grail...if you saw the episode, you'll know what I mean...) and the first in the new series of Broadchurch, which was rather excellent with quite a few unexpected twists and turns and that theme tunes is not at all anything like Hollow Talk by Choir of Young Believers...

Am still increasingly concerned about my friend Judy. From what I can tell, she seems to have left Thornbury about the time I lost contact with her, but nobody - including her family - seems to have any idea where or how she is. Right now, I'm giving very serious thought to getting in touch with some sort of private investigation agency. Although I'm considering going down to Thornbury to the last address I had for her in the vague hope that she may have left some kind of forwarding address. It's unlikely (I'd've thought I'd've found out by now if she had) but it could be worth it...not going to get the chance to do that until Friday at the earliest, though...

Now - dinner, something light on the TV, and then bed...
