Everything is good. I am recording new stuff. I am buying new active monitors (... £180... which I can't really afford). It's all good!
My pal has brought me new acoustic panels for the studio. I have no idea if he wants money for them or if they are a gift. Who cares? All is well. I am writing, I am productive, I am positive. Magnifique. Uptight (Everything's Alright)!
