Mine too, right at the lower bit where it joins the arse. Had a fair few chiro visits which helped for a bit, but sometimes it locks into place, getting old sucks.

Anyway, today I found out my 2TB HDD drive in my PS4 was full! Had to delete some shit and will need to delete more!
Time to invest in another ext HDD methinks. Any suggestions on which ones to avoid?

I picked up a 4TB Seagate wanted an 8TB but it was out of stock and double the price, the 5TB version added another 40 quid to the price of the 4TB

I've been struggling similarly for some time though also my PS4 sounds dangerously like it is going to take off.
Time to invest in a pro & new drive.

Will look into that, thank you, I still have a £20 Amazon voucher to use from Christmas...

So today was a bit of a shocker, I'd randomly received a Facebook message from my Dad. Who I haven't seen or heard from since I was 4 years old. It's the first time in my life that I actually didn't know what to say or do, fucking crazy. Been so long he'd been pushed to the back of my mind and not given any thought, especially given the circumstances of his leaving.

Anyway I've decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and have agreed to meet up, will see how it goes from there.

Life sure does love a curve ball.

Wow that's quite a turn up for you.
I don't know what you are feeling about the situation, but I'm sure you must have a million questions for him.
I guess taking it slow and easy is easier said than done - there must be a massive urge to want to know everything at once. I hope it goes well for both of you.

I have hundreds of questions, and also loads of apprehensions, especially as I have kids of my own now who have grown up with my step dad who's has been there since day 1 for them as their grandad.

Going to be a low process.

Well what a day, met my Dad today, after 28 years. It went well, was a few tears and a lot to talk about, although it was hard to know where to begin.

I can't imagine how he feels now finding out he has a daughter in law and 2 grandchildren after giving up on finding me. Turns out my wife found him on Facebook and sent him a message months ago. She didn't know if it was the right person and didn't hear anything for months as he doesn't really use it.

I had no idea how I'd feel but I'm happy it's happened, and feel bad I made no effort to find him myself after all these years. (There was a lot of shit that happened 28 years ago that led to that event). The past I think prevented me from wanting to look for him.

Fuck, what a mental day. To think I've never really used the word Dad to apply to someone.

Was definitely a weird feeling to meet someone who is your parent that you actually don't know as a person at all.

Glad it went well mate, happy for you. :Y:

But, more importantly, does he have a PlayStation? And can we recruit him? You must have got your gaming skills from somebody after all.... :lol:

Well it was a day of ups and downs. Although it went well it brought back horrible memories of the past for my mum.

But as I've said I'm not expecting or wanting everyone to play happy families, they will be treated seperately and doesn't change the relationship between my mum.

Life's not easy I'll say that. Onwards and upwards as they say.

Salty no not quite the same for gaming, plays dungeons and dragons apparently.

So fucking tired today, emotions have taken a toll on me.
