I’m sitting on the sofa with some weird MTV programme blaring at me, but my niece seems to be enjoy it, despite my protestations… Yesterday was the first Xmas ‘event’ of the year, namely the Development Team’s away day. 50 of us, crammed into a nearby gastro-pub, crackers, crap toys, and turkey. All washed down…

Still trying to get rid of the lurgy, I decided “bugger it” and went out for my first run of 2007. Bloody glad I did because I feel GREAT now! Gotta love those endorphins! It was a busier than usual session, a LOT of new people.. can anyone say New Year Resolution?

12 days after?

Apparently decorations are supposed to stay up until 12 days after Christmas. Balls to that, this site will revert to a more subdued hue tomorrow. Similarly we’ve taken down our decorations. Back to the grind it seems. But not before repairing the broken garden fence which we received as a new year present (at about…

Right, give it back. Come on, it’s not fair and it’s not right. It’s bad enough that I regularly lose little bits of it without you whipping all of it out from right under my nose. I mean, seriously, who the hell stole the past six months? One minute it’s January and the next… WHAM….

Too early

As the light slowly creeps across the buildings I find myself sitting at my desk, somewhat dazed and bemused. Surely it can’t be time to go back to work already, time to haul my body out of bed whilst it’s still dark, time to force cheap instant coffee down my throat in a valiant (if…

Resolutions

Two and a half months in, are YOU sticking to your New Year resolutions? I didn’t make any but I’m beginning to think I should have. Maybe it’s a reaction to my current workload, but I sometimes think I’d be better served if I had something to focus on, a hobby other than this one….

This has been languishing in draft status for a while – given Jason Kottke’s recent news (see next post) I thought now was as good a time to post it as any. I’ve been pondering, amongst other things, the recent Bloggies, and the whole “A list” bloggers thing. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ll…

Farewell 2004, you’ve been great but your time has passed. Hello 2005! I hope the coming year is a good one for you all, in whatever way you want to measure it. Now, where did I put my drink?

Eek. Haven’t done this. Or that. Said I do that but didn’t. Want to do that but haven’t. I’m blaming the weather. No! The changing of the clocks. I’ll blame that. Things just haven’t been the same since I switched my bedside alarm clock for that damn cuckoo clock… I’m struggling here, can’t you tell?…

(blame that GreenFairy wummin) I hardly know where to start. Zip, whoosh, zoom. I’ve got a million and one thoughts flying about my head at the moment. A couple of things have cropped up that are demanding my attention, and they’ve kicked off the old ‘what if’ mindset again. Awaiting a phone call, but I’m…

If you are celebrating it, Happy New Year to you. I hope the Year of the Monkey is full of new experiences and you enjoyed your successes. Celebration of the Chinese New Year Me?

I’ve been on a New Year health kick (like a few other people), which for me means more fruit, plenty of water, tighter portion control, and generally not eating Mars bars and crisps mid-afternoon (and mid-morning… mid-evening.. etc). However the last time I did this after the first few days I started feeling.. well.. ill….

Oh, R-o-ob, The Bad Words Won’t Go Away: “The f-adjective is now one of many intensifiers in English, like ‘extremely,’ with a flavor surely pungent but barely sexual” I admit that I, all too readily, use the f-adjective too much (one of my silent New Year resolutions is to swear less often) and people rightly…

So I thought I’d take a quick skim through the other ‘almost’ winners of THAT competition (which I really don’t wanna say any more about as I fear I’ve already upset Gert – still luv ya sweetie!). (“sweetie”? WTF?) I happen across the runner-up: apparently nothing at all, and see there is a Powershot S30…

7 days in…I’ve not broken my New Year’s Resolution yet. An achievement only slightly lessened by the fact that I didn’t make any. As someone once said “Every day is a day for change”. For those of you who made a resolution or two here is How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolution. Best of…
