One lazy blogger

Not been around in blogland for a while. I've only been checking out a few of my regular reads every now and then, but commenting very little. Must get back in the saddle.

The Christmas break was all a bit rushed, but all in we had a great time. The boys enjoyed it, and received some great gifts. A and I over indulged to the extend that we are both off the booze in the week ! I'm off completely owing to being off my tits on steroids and beta blockers, which also means I can't play squash which is a bummer. I'd only just got my leg back to normal after shagging the top front quad a few months ago, so I'm not best pleased.

Our little corner of Worcestershire is a bit of a nightmare at the moment, the floods have returned, and access in and out of the village is a bit hit and miss at the moment. Although we're slap next to the river, the village itself is elevated so we're not having the problems that the poor folk of Tewkesbury and Upton are bracing themselves for. This is the first day this week that I've made it to the office, it's simply been to much hassle, and as I type its started pissing down again, so its probably time to plan a route home.

Work has kicked in with a vengeance and this month sees me on a delightful tour of Blighty including Diss, Southampton and Northampton. This month I shall mostly be spending my cash on fuel.

To make me feel even peachier, my bloody sister is getting on a plane tomorrow to go and visit Dad in Oz. Jammy cow.

Lets hope she gets there okay with what happen at Heathrow today! Oh, and one of those places you are visiting? Only about 15 miles from me!

Glad to have you back.

She's just called, stuck for 3 hours at HR, not too bad.

Too much bloody driving next week.

Must catch up re Townsville school days sometime

Hey bloke. When I came over the Avon on the M5 at Tewkesbury this evening the whole landscape looked like an inland sea - not lake, a freakin' sea!

Lotsa luck to you and yours and those around you re the possible floods.

Bloody river's a nightmare, up and down like the whores proverbials. We're fortunate that we don't flood although we're slap bang next to the Avon, but it does make getting around a pain in the arse. Nothing like the hell of being flooded, so shouldn't whinge. We're fairly close to that bit you describe, water everywhere.
