Christmas-Time is here!

It’s been a while since I have done blogged. There are a few things I keep meaning to write about, but a combination of training camp, evening commitments and some kind of virus have kept me away from my computer at home. In the last few weeks though, we have moved in to ‘that time of year’: Christmas. I find it an odd time because there are bits of it I enjoy (time off work, giving presents, getting presents, ‘The

Christmas comes, and goes, but once a year.

So, after waiting for what felt like weeks (and was actually weeks) for the Friday 23 December to arrive (signalling the end of work for the Christmas break) Christmas has gone by in the blink of an eye. Now, we still have until January 3rd off work, but time off always goes quicker than time at work (except when there is a deadline looming!). I know there are plenty of reasons people have given for this cruel trick of nature,

Today David Cameron has made a speech regarding multiculturalism in the UK. It does pose an interesting question about the current state of things in the UK. Now, I would like to be clear at this point that one of the things I most enjoy about the UK and especially London is the diverse cultures we have here. However, I also strongly feel that we in the UK have lost our sense of self; we no longer have our own

So, it’s 2011 now! Time does fly – hardly feels like a year since I was round at Rob and Jo’s to see in 2010. But there you go… We had a late night (bed at 3am) but didn’t drink too much so am feeling generally okay today. I think I am still suffering the last minor fatigues etc of my flu because I have another bad throat. I keep getting those at the moment whenever I am vaguely run

The year that was 2010 – a summary

So, another year has gone, can you believe it?! It doesn’t seem like 12 months ago since I was sat here writing my review of 2009. I’m having to drag my mind back to the start of the year in order to start and I’m finding it a bit tough! Ok, so I shall start in the most logical place which is January. As one might expect, it was a rather quiet month. We went for a trip up to Leeds in early

And peace seems to have been restored to the work place.  The system is working and has been running as per normal for over 24 hours now so feeling happier about it.  It is amazing how it drains you though – I am feeling shattered today and have a splitting headache.  Well, it’s not quite that bad but it does hurt! 🙂 Most people finish work today, if they haven’t already, and I am jealous.  Of course, after all of

Gone for another year!

Yes, Christmas has been and gone again and, whilst I have had a nice few days enjoying the festivities (i.e. gifts, food and television) I have to confess I am rather glad it is over.  I don’t want to sound like a scrooge because I don’t hate Christmas; as a matter of fact I rather like Christmas.  Sadly this year though it all happened upon me rather quickly and I was so busy at work I felt a bit rushed

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
