Christmas is here, again!

I can’t believe it’s less than two weeks until Christmas.  It doesn’t seem like a year since we were last sitting down and opening presents etc.  I’m not feeling particularly christmassy though.  I spent some time wrapping presents on Friday, and these are now under our lovely pretty tree.  However, work is so manic and Christmas involves so much travelling that I find it hard to get excited about it.  Sad huh!?! The weather is pretty grotty at the moment

Taking to the water

On Saturday, for the first time in almost 3 years, I went rowing.  It was really fun!  After my wonderful return to the gym routine in July, I have since lapsed back into mediocre gym attendance with half-hearted effort when I am actually there!  Following a quick trip to the ARA website, which I thought would achieve nothing, I discovered there is actually a rowing club in Broxbourne, only 11ish miles from us!  In fact, it’s one of the only

Brussels Part Deux

We may have been back for a week, but fear not, the second (and final) installment of my Brussels blog is finally here. It also conincides nicely with the implementation of my ‘tags’ feature on my website. Using the ‘tags’ tab on the blog page you can now search for entries relating to a specific category, such as Brussels! So, on the Sunday we got up at about 9 am and after another in-room breakfast of Pain au Chocolate, we

Brussels Part Un

Sam and I went on a ‘mini-break’ to Brussels on Friday and came home yesterday.  I tried to keep a blog whilst we were there but having no internet access meant I was doing it on my phone.  Here is part 1 of our adventures.  Part two will follow when I have time to write it!  I have included some pics.  The rest are on Revado: Saturday 17 17:21 So, this weekend, for a small change, we have taken a

Bang, bang and yes, bang again

Sat here quitely in our spare bedroom / study / dumping ground, you can clearly tell it is the weekend before Bonfire Night.  Every other second the peace and quiet of my computer time is shattered by a ‘weeeeeeeeeee, bang’ of a firework going off.  To be perfectly honest, I have no problem with fireworks.  In fact, I am quite a fan.  However, this year everyone seems to have gone one step too far and have bough ”weeeeeeeeeee, BOOM’ fireworks

Tut, tut, tut

Dear oh dear, almost two weeks since my last blog entry.  I fear I am starting to slip into old habits!  In my defence however, the last two weeks have been fairly hectic and have not always left me that much time to blog.  At work I have been getting up to speed with my new project, which I move to a week tomorrow.  (I am also adjusting to the fact I will have to leave my current team in

Hollywood ‘technology’

We were watching Enemy of the State on Saturday and there is this brilliant scene where John Voight’s character wants to see if Will Smith’s character has been ‘passed’ some encriminating material by an aquaintence.  His technical lacky, Jack Black, takes the security camera footage and ‘rotates’ it by 180 degrees and give a ‘hypothesised’ version of what Will Smith’s bag may have looked like.  I really like that film, but that one scene is so far fetched, it’s laughable

Brrrrrr….

It’s suddenly got a bit chilly down here in the South; not freezing (I would be insulting the Northerner within me by claiming that already) but the temperature has definitely dropped.  For the first time in the last few weeks I bearly got hot at all on the walk to the station this morning.  I also advised Sam didn’t take his coat with him too, which I felt a bit guilty about when we got outside and he was cold!

Where does the weekend go?

Yet again, it’s Sunday afternoon – the weekends always go so fast.  It’s probably because we spent all of yesterday cutting down a rouge ash tree in our garden.  We started at about 12 noon and finished at about 6 with a brief lunch break.  We were successful though and even managed to dig in and plant up a flower bed – yay! It’s chilly in our spare room today!  I’m sat in here downloading random songs from iTunes.  It’s
