Nine And A Half Months

Hello dear readers!

They say your memory can play tricks on you. I think they could be right.

Skipping over, for a moment, the question of who exactly 'they' are and why 'they' are such authorities on the human mind and, well, just about anything else you can possibly think of; I know for a fact that my own memory can, and in fact does, do me a disservice from time to time, not always to my detriment.

This was highlighted by a recent and perhaps slightly peculiar round of reminiscing.

Cooking On Gas

 Hello dear readers!

Yesterday I cooked.

In fact the day before yesterday I cooked as well, because, drum roll please.... we finally have a working kitchen!

Yes, a mere five weeks after moving into our new home it is now possible to prepare and actually cook food, utilising our brand spanking new oven, and our brand spanking new hob. This is something that fills me with more excitement than a healthy, well balanced man should feel over kitchen appliances, and it's also highlighted something else as well.

None Fall Down

Hello dear readers!

It would seem the sporting life is not for me.

This has been something that I have long suspected but which was finally confirmed to me last night... at a church gathering.

Allow me to explain.

Lest We Forget

Hello Dear readers!

Well these are interesting times!

Not that that is necessarily a good thing, mind you. In fact the Chinese are purported to have a curse that translates as 'May you live in Interesting Times", and although I wouldn't for one second like to lay any blame at that venerable civilisation's feet, I fear it may just be coming true.

Here's why.

Proper Job

Hello dear readers! 

Unemployment is starting to get just a little old. 

At first sight it may seem like having all day to do as much or as little as one wants to do is some kind of utopian ideal, but it would appear that a mere fourteen days in, that illusion is already wavering somewhat. 

Yes folks, I need a job. The question is... Which job?

It Never Rains, But It Pours

Hello dear readers! 

Well, we're in! 

Yes, after what seems like a lifetime, we are actually, properly living in our new home. It may be unfinished, it may have a slight air of an abandoned building site, it may still smell slightly of paint but it's ours, and, thanks to the hard work of family and friends and  a few sticks of furniture... It's habitable. 

It's a welcome bit of news in what has been a rough couple of weeks.

Make Do And Mend

Hello dear readers!

I'm Baaa-aaack.

Yes, it would seem that rumours of my demise have indeed proven to be greatly exaggerated and, after a three week and one day hiatus, The Seated Perspective show is firmly back on the road and apparently... attracting admirers (Thank you Bethany).

So, what's been going on in the last 22 days, you ask? Well quite a lot actually.
