Well that’s to all of you who may happen to read this poor attempt at a blog! Hope everything is all good in your world? There has been lots happening in mine and will try and fill you in on these below. Now I’m sure I will miss some bits and bobs but will endevour to come back and add them later.
Firstly is the lack of keeping this updated. I have no excuse, I have had plenty of free time over the last couple of months, but have found myself occupied with other things. I have however been keeping my Twitter and Tumblr Blog up to date, so please take a look to see my daily ramblings and where I’ve been recently.
First off Smoking. I had mentioned in a previous post that I had attempted to give up the old fags! Well as of today I have gone 8 weeks without one! Well done to me! It has been very hard and especially whilst out and about with everyone else chuffing away! But I’ve stayed strong and resisted, I hopefully will be smoke free forever! I have been going down the patches route and as of tomorrow will be on the final 2 week lowest dose!
Now with not smoking you may think that I have had loads of money to myself and find myself in a new financial situation. Well the answer is yes and no, the problem is you see that I have always been crap with money and if I have it I will spend it! So with all this extra cash I have been investing in many things. Cd’s, DVD’s, Books and model trains! (More about his later, maybe not today!)
But this has now stopped, I have succeeded in not buying crap food whilst out with work and from now on this is the testing times, do not go crazy when I look at the bank balance. There are many things on the iwant list for the future, a new compact camera, a new lens for my SLR and a holiday would be nice, The US has been calling me and the wife recently, may have to go back to good old NYC!
But I have my feet firmly on the ground and trying to be a sensible, mature grown up! Lets see if this continues!
On the geek front, a few updates I am now the proud owner of two iPhones, al be it one of them is a work one but now I am all powerful in the world of mobiles! The obsession with Fox’s Glee continues and am eagerly awaiting the new episodes in around two weeks time!
This then brings me onto a small matter of another television great returning. The Doctor! Yes on Saturday Doctor Who returns with Matt Smith in all its HD glory on the BBC. To say i’m a bit excited like a little boy would be an understatement. I’m sure my good friend Magic Moir will also be counting down the days, hours and minutes until this occasion. Cant wait to have a good old geeky chat with him about it. Also the last few episodes of Lost which he is also an avid fan. Will we ever know why, what and why all of that ever happened????
On the other major geek front, railways, I have been a busy little spotter with a couple of trips already in the bag this moth with plenty of photos being taken, many of which can be found on my flickr page. I have also taken a route down to the darkside of railway enthusiasts and returned to spotting wagons. I used to do this many years ago in the early 90’s, but I have found that if you end up owning a book of them, you will spot! Still it has given me a fresh enthusiasm for my hobby, whatever you feel, I’m happy!
So I think thats about it not to go on too much, just another insight to what is going on with me. Oh and I still have not started exercising, but will try within the next week or two to go out running and on the pushbike more.
So until then I bid you all farewell
