Under The Weather

Hello dear readers!

Today you join a tired and slightly worried blogger.

It is, as is my custom, a week since I last sat down (well you know what I mean), to put virtual pen to virtual paper and to be quite honest those seven days have not been amongst my finest. In fact, containing, as they did, a visit to a neurologist, five days off work, and several dizzy spells, I think they can be counted amongst the worst of recent times.

Allow me to elucidate.

Past Tense

 Hello dear readers!

You join me today in a reflective mood, as I think about a couple of rather significant anniversaries.

Yes, there will shortly be reasons to celebrate. In just under four weeks myself and my increasingly wonderful wife, Tina, will have been married a whole five years. I know, right, five years! The time has flown by, and for me at least, and I’m sure for the people that have known us that long, that figure just doesn’t seem quite right... but it is.

Those years have, on the whole been wonderful, filled with laughter and joy, but there has been the odd little misadventure too, and herein lies the tale of that other anniversary.

Losing It

Hello dear readers!

You may be seeing a little less of me from now on.

No, I’m not shutting the blog down (what do you mean ‘awwww’!), and in fact I have actually had some idle thoughts of expanding my burgeoning empire. With work commitments and other writing projects to consider though I wouldn’t start holding your breath waiting for that to happen.

Anyway, back to the matter at hand. Allow me to expand on my downsizing.

Going Nowhere

Hello dear readers!

And a happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there.

Yes, today is that day that we (well those of us in the UK anyway) set aside to celebrate fathers, dads, pops, and paters the land over. I, of course will be making the traditional pilgrimage to the folk's to drop off cards and presents, and perhaps share a nice pot of tea with the old lad, later today.  Ideally I would also be able to celebrate the day with my own lovely step-daughter, Sarah (see here) but as she is currently in Cheshire busy studying, learning to drive, working part time and, well, being seventeen pretty much full time, that opportunity is unlikely to present itself.

All of which has nothing whatsoever to do with the subject of today’s post.

Seats & Chairs

Hello dear readers!

Well what a week that was!

It may be a long time in politics, and certainly that particular topic was at the forefront of a lot of peoples minds this week. Especially for those of us in the UK. On a more personal front it’s also been eventful due to a few difficulties of the mobility kind.

But first lets go delve a little deeper into the murky world of Westminster.

Blog suspended

Hello dear readers

I am without words.

I had a long post about the upcoming election planned out. Last night's events in London have robbed me of any motivation to post on such things. Therefore, as a mark of respect for those killed and injured in the atrocity. I am suspending the blog for this week, excepting this small note

Take care of each other.

Until next time...

Hello dear readers.

Today, you join a saddened and somewhat conflicted blogger

You may find that the following post is somewhat lacking in this blog’s usual light hearted irreverence as the Seated Perspective spotlight turns recent tragedy and touches on both politics and religion in doing so.

I am, of course talking about Monday’s suicide bombing in Manchester.
