    Unfortunately the radiologist found a few cysts in both kidneys and ten in my liver. However, he did say that doesn't mean I do have PKD and that I'll need to work with my GP and potentially specialists to work out what they are. He also said a bunch of people who lead healthy normal lives show cysts so not to panic yet. Still can't help but be a little nervous though. Fear of the unknown is a powerful thing. I'm not gonna go down without a fight though, medical science is making massive leaps.

    I'm currently preparing for an ultrasound on no kidneys to see if I've any evidence of polycystic kidney disease. My late grandfather had it, my dad and uncle his side both have it. I thought the blood screen was searching for the gene but apparently they were just looking for signs of abnormal kidney function.

    TM have announced a recoil Mk46 LMG... Still early days but hoping it's able to fit the collapsing Mk46 stock as that's what I want.

    The nan of one of my colleagues and good mates (I think of him as my little brother haha) has made me a cheese board. She's arts and crafty so she's put one together with an imitation slate and then burn etched in a nice picture of a wine bottle and glasses. It's really nice and creative (and my first ever cheese board hurrah!). Now to source some cheese. I've historically been quite boring (not a blue cheese fan really, veins put me off) with my cheeses but do like cheddar, Red Leceister, Brie, cheeses with chillies in and a Norweigan Brown Cheese (it's really peculiar but I enjoy it). But I might try and expand my horizons. And I've done my research and the lady who made me it loves Hotel Chocolat. Wish I was crafty and could give her something a bit more personal.

    Like that guy who had a SAK a few years ago in his glove box. But then he threatened to stab someone in a pub, on searching his car they found it and charged him as he was being a pillock. I carry my Skeletool Rx (rescue version skeletool) to work 5 days a week. It lives in my bag to and from work and goes into my pockets when I'm on site as I find having a set of screwdrivers and pliers handy. And a strap cutter if ever needed. I'm looking at picking up a Boker non locking folder as I like the shape of it (I don't like most spydercos) and could do with a general purpose knife for processing boxes, dealing with cable ties etc.

    Yeah I was half expecting questions like that. Hope they can keep the external skeleton though as it was engraved by LM as my dad got it for me as a graduation gift. Gave blood yesterday, that made me smile (even if after getting home I pretty much passed out, I blame the 14 hour shift beforehand). Also picked up my 5D today and loving it so far.

    Ordered a bargain Canon 5D (original) as they apparently still hold up as a DSLR and they also take the same batteries as my 30D. Was supposedly delivered yesterday, thing is I selected Argos click and collect. They've no knowledge of the parcel and the seller didn't have my personal address (however I feel UPS might have somehow, invoice address maybe). But it's not here. Only thing I can think of is they possibly delivered it next door (neighbour was out yesterday so couldn't ask). So I'm now on my way home hoping they're in and it's there...

    "guest" "welcome" "123456789" (hint was 129...) "q" They're all passwords I've come across on various systems.

    Eh, I aired my concerns about it being between friends, as opposed to a paid service where worst case scenario you feel cheated out of money and with no/terrible photos as opposed to potentially hurting an awesome friendship if I can't deliver what they want. I talked about worst case scenarios, all my equipment breaking, maybe all the files corrupting and they seem to be fine with it all (guess the real question is would they be or are they just saying that without realising just how wrong it could go?). I know it's not going to be a huge wedding and there might not even be a proper reception and they don't seem to fussed about the photos being awesome but I still am concerned slightly. Half tempted to just put together what would be gift money with some others to hire a photographer. But super happy: day 7 of 7 down, 75 hours in a row and I'm almost ready to curl up in my bed (does anyone else like it when their sheets are cold first thing?)

    Good friend has asked me to photograph her wedding (they have virtually no money but are doing it in three months). I'm honoured to even be considered but I'm also worried about messing it up if I do cover it.

    So, dear friend is 8 weeks pregnant. Awesome news and I reckon she'll make an awesome mum. At what point do you buy pregnancy cards? I'm still among a quite immature group of friends and she's my first true friend to get pregnant and be happy with it. Don't know the etiquette haha.

    Good news is power is back. Regarding the hot water, hadn't tried it but done enough cold showers in my time. Light for showering is to make sure I don't break my neck I guess...

    Aye, main thing I'm worried about us keeping my phone charged as it's my alarm clock and got a shift tomorrow. But it'll survive the night with a top up from my power bank. It'll be weird showering by torch though (our bathrooms have no windows what so ever). I'll survive, quite amused actually. And helps me plan what I need in case power goes down for longer (why do I have no candles, or at least a decent lantern?).
