|Yet to be named|
.....but she is a beauty and a joy to drive.
Talking of finances this is another thing I am changing by stopping my impulsive spending that happens when the Black dog threatens to bring me down and being far more disciplined with money management. With this in mind I am once more selling upon 'Flea-bay', at the moment tis stuff that I have either bought impulsively (the Morris being one of these 'impulsive buys' and which is due to be picked up tomorrow) or items that I no longer use. I have been quite ruthless in this and it is just turning the corner and making me a small profit.
I have also started another blog that I hope has a different 'feel' to this one, something a tad more primitive is what I am aiming for. Please do not look so concerned my friend this blog will still ramble on in its usual disjointed fashion. Speaking of writing I have started something that I have dabbled with and thought about for some years now and that is actually write a book which I intend to self publish upon Kindle, who knows maybe I will become famous? But seriously the writing of this book, or maybe books? is just to explore other avenues of expression and hopefully will prove to be as relaxing as I hope it may be. Although I did have an impulsive moment the other day when offered a small sailing dinghy for the princely sum of £0.00, yep free. Fortunately there is little work required to have her upon the water this year so I gratefully accepted the offer and now I am able to dream of sailing still waters, cruising along flowing rivers and perchance trying my hand at some inshore fishing once more.

As for the other stuff that has kept me away from taking a seat with you, well mainly it has been work and after careful consideration I have come to the conclusion that working for my present employers is not in the best interest for me and it is time to scour the region for a more suitable employer. Besides work, walking has been the order of the day and my fitness levels are now showing a marked increase. So much so in fact that I am considering training for some long distance walks in the future, walks that take days not hours through the best that the British countryside has to offer. The garden has also taken some of my time, but only to sit and ponder on the plans to bring in more change and simplify my life even more.
Ah how fleetingly time passes, please feel free to sit and ponder but I must away and prepare tonight's simple fare of baked potatoes covered in tuna. Until we have the time to let pass by together once more take care my friend.
