And . . . relax

Work is hard.  Losing interest, and people have annoyed me this week.  Must be a sign.

XC60 ordered.  Very excited, car of my dreams etc.  Obviously cannot take the place of important stuff like family and football, but pretty close.

Got Strictly Sausage Saturday today.  For those that don't know what this means, I pity you, and I am afraid that I am unable to divulge any more.  Brad and Angelina, plus associated maggots, will be down too, so it should be fun.

My parents are home from Spain, looking very well, and complaining about the cold weather.  Cold huh?  Dad has an op lined up for mid January, and the outcome of that will determine the date they fly back.  They have even contemplated a ferry-to-Bilbao-plus-one-way-car-hire option, so must be serious about getting back to the warmth, the bowling, the lazy lunches and rock bottom prices.

Got Maggot activities of football training, drumming and tennis this morning, then I may have a little nap prior to SSS, just so I am on top form.  Plan to wear silly dance-inspired outfit tonight.  I won't be taking any photos.

That is about it for today.  Have a great weekend, speak next week.

And . . . relax

It has been a busy week.  The large deal* that I am working on has been pretty intense, and doing it has meant I have been neglecting my day job.  Luckily I have a good team, who have been picking up most of the slack, though I have to say that I do seem to be needed for an eye-watering amount of advice**.

I am all vetted and setup with the nn, so am ready to go.  I also nearly have the car sorted out.  I have a very specific car in mind, and have been shifting round the process trying to sort out how to afford it.  I now believe that I have found a way.  This will need to get the final approval from the boss, but if it all comes to pass then I should take possession of it by the end of this year***. 

I am actually rather excited about the car, not that I am really a petrol head or anything, indeed it is going to be diesel, but mainly because it meets all my needs, and some, and it also satisfies the very exacting standards of LO, Maggot 1 and Maggot 2.  The latter two of course are world experts of cars, being avid Top Gear fans.  Want to know the top speed of some car I have never heard of?  They are your men, or boys.

We are off to Brad and Angelina this weekend, which will be very nice.  It is Angelina's birthday and we should have a dandy time.  There is a bit of sport to fit in too each side.

That's about it from me.  Have a great weekend, speak next week.

* I will probably be able to talk about this in a couple of weeks, without having to then kill myself
** Coz I know too much probably
*** All part of why I can afford it

And . . . relax

Another week passes me by.  Work is very busy, but very interesting actually as I am working on a large piece of work that is complex, confusing, urgent and multi-facetted (how many different ways can I find to say its a stonker), and actually rather a lot of fun as a result.

The only fly in the ointment is my day job, which is slipping as a result, and for which I am getting a bit of heat.  Oh well, never mind.

Home is good.  I am working on a couple of new original mixes which are fun.  We have a lot of football at the weekend, and I have a list of DIY chores that is growing daily.

Happy days.

I hope you have a great weekend, speak next week.
