Room 101: New Year’s Resolutions

Every year, when we reach New Year’s Eve, something starts which makes me shudder – people make ‘New Year’s Resolutions’. Someone who only drives everywhere and spends their whole day sat at a desk or on the sofa will suddenly declare they will, from January 1, be ‘going to the gym every day’; The person who has a McDonalds for lunch no-less than several times a week will vow themselves to a life of absolute vegetarianism from the moment the

2012 – the New Year Plan

The Christmas and New Year period disappears quite quickly one the two ‘big days’ are over and done with. It is hard to believe that this time last week was the first day of a brand new year. I went back to work on Tuesday and after about 3/4 of a day, normal service resumed and any thoughts of festive cheer or relaxed afternoons curled up on the sofa were long gone. This is not completely a bad thing because

Welcome to 2012

So 2011 is gone and the year of the London Olympics has arrived – 2012! I am not one for massive life-changing decisions at the start of the New Year.

That was the year that was 2011 – a summary

It is currently 29/04/2012. I migrated my blog to wordpress a couple of weeks ago and in doing so had to migrate all of my posts. It got me flicking through a few to check the integrity of them. Whilst doing that yesterday I noticed that my original summary had been over-written by the subsequent blog post. I cannot recall this happening and can only put it down to a coding defect in my original blog (proves the benefit of

Blog Post 01-01-2011

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

¡Felíz año nuevo!

I can’t believe I haven’t blogged since November!  That’s rubbish.  I had so much to say over December too.  Unfortunately I fear energy levels were too low as Christmas approached and I was in desperate need of a break!  Sadly, that break is now coming to an end because tomorrow is the dreaded back to work day.  It feels like going back to school, except that I can drink tea when I choose and I don’t technically have homework.  It
