Matt and I are spending this weekend in North Wales. We'll be finding our wedding venue this weekend and begin the fabulous process of paying a lot of money for a single day. Well, not really. Our's will be relatively small. We're planning on having the ceremony at a Victorian train station. The station itself is independent and run by volunteers in the local community. It has steam trains as well, in fact our lunch on the day will hopefully take place on a two hour steam train journey.

In other news the healthier lifestyle is going well. Hit a roadblock as far as motivation goes though, because this week my every so *delightful* mother and grandmother insisted that I "need" a gastric band. Which I don't, I am making good progress with hard work and a better diet. I don't want this to be easy, nor do I want surgery and it's side-effects. I want the satisfaction of my hard work paying off and the certainty of keeping the weight off due to lifestyle changes.
Back in March/April I upgraded my HTC One for a Sony Xperia Z3. The HTC was awesome, but there was a camera bug and the battery life was getting poor over time. It remains even now one of my favourite phones to have owned, and the level of randomly being dropped it could take plus the 32GB internal memory were fantastic.
However, the Sony Xperia Z3 is waterproof. It has a better camera (no pink effect bug due to age) and the screen is fantastic. It doesn't have similar levels of indestructibility but I purchased a heavy duty screen protector for the front and a protector for the back (also glass). The only big drawback I'm experiencing six months down the line is the internal memory. I've dropped down to 16GB and it's proving especially frustrating at the moment.
Now, I have no problem with SD cards. I just purchased a 64GB SD card, so lots of extra room. The really annoying thing is that the main apps taking a lot of space, Spotify for example, don't allow you to transfer data to the SD card. Of course even if they did it would likely only transfer a third of it. So I've only saved about 500MB of space thus far on my actual phone.
So now I'm sat transferring 13GB of music onto the SD card so that I can remove some downloaded playlists from Spotify and *maybe* free up a tiny bit more space. I've got Heroes of Dragon Age staring at me with a whopping 1.99GB and surprise surprise you can't move any of the data.
In other news I've been watching Scuzz again, which is a music channel I enjoyed a lot in my late teens. Except the music featured regularly then (8 years ago) is now played sporadically. It feels peculiar, alternative music seems so much bigger. It feels even more peculiar that my phone then was the Sony Ericsson W810 with 20MB of storage, when I'm here complaining about 16GB...
