Happy New Year…


Another low key year end as it now the norm as I’m not really a fan of new year. Whilst there is a certain charm in the move from one year to the next and the chance to say its done, get behind me….And then welcome in a new year full of opportunities for the new year.

As such its tempting to think resolution and what will change, but I think I will give it a rest. I suffer from a well known Year – 5 lag on this kind of thing… buy a house, get fit etc…. Well at least the fitness is being worked on if not for the current cold situation.

What will be new for the year is preplanned holidays waiting to be booked! or in some cases are part booked! Exciting times.

New year is also a time to look back and remember those not with us and its been a troublesome year. Indeed, at this point thoughts to Eddy in hospital – take it easy uncle.



Its been a while…

So I suppose I should really put some effort in…

A cold for 4 and a bit weeks now is taking its toll, and whilst modern medicine is good, it seems almost ineffective against the common garden cold

So there was your headline, through out December I’ve had a cold, a runny nose and cough just the usual kind of winter thing. Its never been awful but by the same token its never been great. Because of this I’ve consumed lots of cold and flu tablets and taken my fair share of cough medicine but with minimal results. I’ve stood up, I’ve laid on the sofa and even tried staying in bed but all thats doing is making me sore from being horizontal and not vertical – no win!

As I sit here typing poor posture has upset the back and side, so from tomorrow will need to start some light exercise and start getting out for fresh air! It’s amazing how different you can feel from a few days bad posture.  At work I generally sit well and am careful which is probably why its hurting more now.

Sleep hasn’t been a barrel of laughs either, with lots of short naps about all I am managing. Too much coughing waking one self up etc etc.

Right then doom and gloom over, other things for December, a few meals out and playing of battle laser tag thingy with a group of friends. Prep for christmas which is now been and gone. Getting ready for new year which will be upon us in no time.  A restaurant is booked for food post falcons game so that will make a nice change.

I’ve started for travel for next year. A trip to singapore is 1/3 done, USA should be done early Janaury so thats not too bad.

Actually sitting concentrating and writing this out is having the desired effect and I feel tired. perhaps bed is calling….




DIY – a work in progress

stick_figure_carrying_wood_400_wht_7671So a few days off has seen me working at the parents on their new bathroom. It started off by finding a leak and repairing to lets have a whole new bathroom.  its been a large lwork in progress. For the past two days it has been wall panels and the like. Tonight was buying the last of the bathroom furntiure, but its done….

Time to go back to work to relax, and unwind…



Working with wordpress…

My little corner of the internet is powered by WordPress and valuevps.co.uk as its host. By and large its great but it really does like updates…. Add in some theme updates, and some addon updates, we could be here a while. At least the main wordpress ones are now automated!
