So this is Christmas (cue song)


Well, it's Christmas Eve, and I'm at work. Nothing much happening and I'm beginning to wish I had taken a leave day. I don't think anybody would have minded as it is not as if anything could have been fixed if there had been a problem. Although saying that, someone needed to be onsite. There … Continue reading So this is Christmas (cue song)

Survived another year!


Well it's over for another twelve months. It is not as dramatic as it sounds, but I hate Halloween. I didn't used to. It was great when I was a child. We used to go to a neighbour's house and have a party. We would get dressed up and play games for a couple of … Continue reading Survived another year!

‘Tis the season ….. blah blah blah


Well it's here again. Christmas!! I don't like Christmas. Or more to the point, I don't like what Christmas has become. It seems to have become just a reason to eat, drink and spend to excess. A couple of years ago, I was asked "What would I like at Christmas, if money was no object?" … Continue reading ‘Tis the season ….. blah blah blah

We stopped off at a gift centre for a look around. My god, these place do depress me at times. Here we are at the … Continue reading Back home …..

I know they are very good (or so I'm told anyway) but I've never really had any desires to own one. I always fancied a Galaxy or something similar. Then along … Continue reading Tablet virgin no longer

Getting back to normal (or as normal as it gets)


     After surviving Christmas, the next task was to get through New Years Eve. We did!! R*** was on respite, as he struggles with the NYE fireworks. It’s not the fireworks themselves that are the problem, it’s the randomness of the explosions coupled with the unexpectedness, if that’s the word I’m looking for. So he … Continue reading Getting back to normal (or as normal as it gets)

Another Christmas over…..


     Well, when I say over, I mean that the ritual present giving and over eating is finally coming to an end. It’s been a reasonable time. Nothing spectacular, but then I don’t like Christmas, spectacular or otherwise. I’ll not go into the reasons at this time. I will leave that for another day. So … Continue reading Another Christmas over…..
