It's not the cold snap in the weather, to be honest I enjoy cold winter's days more than stinking hot summer ones. It's not the financial malaise that I have been trying to put to rights over the last few months as there is light at the end of the tunnel upon this front (even worked some bloody overtime at the
I am definitely trying to fight my way out of this syrup that has engulfed my mind though and have started looking to plan things for the year ahead. Things that myself and my George can look forward too...soooo here is a list of what is in the pipeline for 2016 so far....
- A trip to New Zealand (already booked).
- Mike Peters in concert (Booked).
- AC/DC in concert (Booked)
- A walk for charity up Snowdonia (yes booked as well, gulp).
- Major changes to Compromise Garden.
- Working on Rusty (of course).
So a short list so far but hopefully it will grow and help release me from this malaise I find myself struggling against. Of course it does not have to be a major event or challenge to stimulate the mind, the smallest of things can make a difference, and those who know me also know that it is the simplest of things that bring me the most joy. Things like sitting by a roaring fire on the coldest of nights, eating a good rich hotpot when coming in from a bloody freeze the balls off a brass monkey walk, sitting quietly in the woods and watching wildlife move pass me as if I belonged there, fishing on the banks of a river without another soul in sight all day, holding my George close and feeling her heartbeating next to me.....so yeah there are lots of simple things to take pleasure in and help keep the dog at bay, sometimes though I just need to remind myself of them and writing them here does help. So thank you for your indulgence whilst I witter away but this blogging m'larkey sometimes just helps this rotund welshman find a little perspective and keeps the Bitch at bay.
Until the next time, take care...
