Welcome to the Future

So then it’s here, the year 2011. Feels a bit like 2010, but then that also felt like 2009, and so on and so forth.

As we all know it’s just a number and just a measurement in time or even existence! Still I digress, what is meant to be here is a very simple Happy New Year to all of you readers out there, of which I’m aware there are at least two of you. Also I hope you had a fantastic Christmas and got everything you asked for!

Right then, pleasantries over, now time for business. It has been a few months since I last posted anything on here, and there have been many developments in different areas of my life. So try try and keep you updated here goes:

Website

Well after about three or four redesigns I think I may have the look for nee-nah.com right! For those of you who don’t know I have one or two different blogs and photo galleries online and decided a while back to make my domain, nee-nah.com the index site for all of these. So please feel free to pop over and see what you can see, eh!

Railways & Photography

So this has been a tad up and down on both fronts, as ultimately my photography rarely goes on with out my interest in railways taking president, however I did take some nice pics, in all that snow we had over the festive period, which can be found on my MobileMe Gallery.

The Railways and Photography has taken a dip in the latter parts of the year with very little in the way of trips out through September to December. Other than a delightful visit to Freightliner Crewe Basford Hall organized by Phoenix Railtours. So good in fact that I will be frequenting the site again in the next two weeks as I have a visit also planned on January 15th!

On the hardware front I have purchased myself a new digital compact, in the form of the Sony CyberShot DSC HX5V, very nice as well as a new pair of binoculars, Bushnell H20 10×42. And to top it all off at Christmas a Jessops FlashGun for my Canon EOS DSLR. New toys ahoy! Just need to test them out now, will be doing that very soon especially with the bins at Toton.

NYE AKA

The above simply meaning New Years Eve Also Known As. Marc’s new bar which opened  before Christmas in the old site of Yates. And low and behold I did DJ on NEw Years Eve to  pub full of real people who payed to go in! Did feel good after about 10 years, but hey you never loose it!

Smoking is Cool

Again I refer you to an older post of mine, whereI quit smoking. This did not last for long. As a new years resolution I am starting again, and so far I am doing OK, nearly 3 whole days and no cravings, and Im not even using patches!!!! so will I endeavor to stay uncool forever, we will see, watch this pace peeps!

2011…

So for this year there is much to look forward too, A life with out fags,  which in turn should give me more cash!  An exciting year ahead at work, me hopes and much more including something very new, which will be elaborated upon here in the near future.

So thank you for reading this silly little blog, I surely does not help you in life but I think it may help me somewhat, only slightly in trying to explain myself.

Till later on, bye bye!

Long Time , No See

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????

Mind The Gap

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

Smoking is Cool

And you know it is, Fact. No I know it’s very bad for you and so on and so forth, but he plain and simple fact is that Smoking is Cool, you just have to look at all the famous cool people in the world, they all smoke don’t they, Yes!

Which brings me on to my point, I am cool and as from tomorrow, 1st February 2010, I will no longer be cool as I’m packing in the fags! there I have announced it to the world.

There are many reasons for this but more importantly than anything else it’s about time. I have heard tales from friends who have managed this task in the past, and they are amazed that halfway through the month they still have money left in their bank accounts! I’m especially looking forward to this.

To also counteract the retirement from coolness, I will also throughout February be not drinking any form of alcohol! I have concluded that temptation is the highest for cigarettes whilst enjoying a cold pint or two with friends. To stop the fags I must cease the beer, although only temporarily.

So this is my mission, if you will, my goal, my vision, my challenge for 2010. I think I’m ready, smoked all of the remaining fags,  drank all the beer in the fridge, stop taking money out with me to prevent my from purchasing said items, and most importantly invested in some heavy duty nicotine patches! On the other side of this pain I will be considerably more wealthy, more healthy and more nice smelly.

Chances are good that I will succeed so I will keep you posted, and Im sure that my regular tweets will keep you updated, so here goes, here’s to a month of hell.

Bye for now!
