Frozen dog poo…… (2001-11-30)

The end of another week at work, and the end of the month as well. Christmas approaches apace with the trees and decorations springing up around the place. I suppose I’ll need to get our Christmas stuff sorted out at home, I’m sure the kids’ll love the fuss and excitement of it all. I’ve still […]

The euphoria of payday has passed, to be replaced by the reality of a cold wet late November morning. I must confess to being a little sanguine this morning, I suspect the damp and dreary start to the day has affected my mood a little. I did treat myself to a new phone yesterday, a […]
