Why I've not been posting

I have all sorts of things I've been wanting to post about, but haven't had the time or the energy. Work always gets busy around November/December, but this year it started right on 1st November. It usually gets so quiet the week before Christmas that I have plenty of time to write Yuletide treats. So... Continue reading

Stuff and nonsense

September seems to be shit month at work at the moment. It's just all been going down at once and involving everything going wrong, leaving late and working at weekends.

And then suddenly all our clients decided to launch projects before Easter, so now we're really busy and I'm hoping I won't be... Continue reading

Wind and work

Monday night's wind didn't do much for my back fence. Although I opened the curtains and watered the plants without noticing. It was only when I went to leave for work that I noticed the view out the back was a bit different to normal. Fortunately, it's my neighbour's fence, so I don't have to... Continue reading
