Wheels Within Wheels

Hello dear readers!

Less than a week into my new job and I’ve already started taking time off.

No, I’m not playing hooky. I’m not swinging the lead, or any other associated metals. In fact Friday’s day off was pre-booked even before I’d signed in on Monday morn.

And of course there was a very specific reason for doing so.

On The Buses

Hello dear readers!

You join me this week, in a state of mildly excited anticipation, a state that will probably only build as the day wears on.

I start my new job tomorrow!

Yes, finally, after what seems like millennia spent waiting for the bewildering amount of checks to finally be completed (see here) the day has arrived. This time tomorrow I will be an honest(ish), hard(ish),working, contributing member of society once more.

Of course there’s still plenty to be done before tomorrow... and I have the small matter of public transport nagging at the back of my mind.

All Good Things

Hello dear readers!

You find me today dawdling in the Doldrums.

The frantic days of the festive period are firmly behind us. The tree is down, the tinsel is away and the last present has finally been handed out. In place of this dizzying kaleidoscope of activity, a holding pattern has emerged in the Seated Perspective household, a period of waiting, of expectation. A period of potential frustrations. It is a time requiring patience.

Unfortunately patience is not a commodity I’m overly equipped with.

Dog Days

Hello dear readers!

Winter is coming!

I’m not talking of White Walkers and snow zombies here, there’s no Starks or Lannisters hiding between the lines of his missive (although we are consuming Game Of Thrones at n astonishing rate of knots at Seated Perspective Towers.)

No I’m talking about the good old British weather and the fact that the coming months could hold some interesting challenges. Chief amongst which is the thorny issue of the dog.

A New Broom

Hello dear readers!

And a happy new year to one and all.

Yup, Xmas is done and dusted and, as I write, the car crash that has been 2016 is drawing to a stuttering and much anticipated end.

So, to quote a certain Ms Summers, 'where do we go from here?'
