Email I received yesterday:

As a customer of DVD Rentals by Post, we wanted to let you know that LOVEFiLM International has acquired Amazon’s DVD rental business, and Amazon is now a shareholder of LOVEFiLM. Amazon will continue to handle your movie rental queue and DVD deliveries for the next few months to make the transition to LOVEFiLM as smooth as possible. LOVEFiLM offers the most extensive collection of latest-release DVDs and hard-to-find titles, as well as games. They also have great movie reviews, ratings, site features and movie trailers, and Amazon is excited to be part of its future.

Your rental plan and the price you pay will remain unchanged. So LOVEFiLM can serve you better, your rental service agreement and DVD rental account information (including your payment information) will be transferred to LOVEFiLM. In the future, LOVEFiLM will be responsible for your DVD rental account, which will be subject to the LOVEFiLM Privacy Policy.

Sleep, sleep, sleep …

The last few weeks have been crazily busy.

  • A weekend with members and ex-members of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain in Birmingham,
  • followed by a weekend with more ex-NYCGB friends in Altrincham (near Manchester) last weekend, and
  • then yesterday we drove down to Edinburgh for an information day about Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) with the PKD Charity.

Last night Jane kindly drove us home, while I slept in the car.

We got home, collapsed on the sofa and watched the last half-hour of I’d Do Anything on BBC1.

Just before Casualty started I went to the loo, and on the way back downstairs got distracted by the comfortable looking bed in our room.

I went for a wee lie down. Ten … twenty minutes that should do the trick.

Two and a half hours later I came to, stumbled out of bed, put on my pyjamas and climbed back in.

I must have slept for the best part of 12 hours.
