It has been a while since I last set fingertips to keyboard and posted anything up here.
For the main part it was because I hadn’t yet transitioned this site for easier access to the new IT kit. It was also due to being a bit busy with other home and life-in-general stuff.
And I’ve also been enjoying the wind-down. Over fine months have passed now without the need to travel anywhere for work. Three months since I last went ‘Medieval‘ on someone. Two months ago I actually became a ‘pensioner‘ – well, I achieved early access to my Civil Circus pension but there’s something funny telling people that and they look at me, probably wondering how old I really am! So little step changes have occurred since I last updated this. But still – there’s been a-plenty to keep me occupied elsewhere.
We’re under a month away from Christmas and the New Year, and looking forward to it. For once, there’s no potential for work to get in the way for either of us. We’ve also visited and sorted the family already as well, so no need for long treks down south and back again. Plans are all in place, preparations are underway, and a few DVD box-sets are being held in reserve. We may call ‘Open-House‘ at some point and invite friends to come visit, if they have the time and inclination. Or we may just shut ourselves away. We shall see.
And my altruism for this time of year needs satiating. I shall research that, see what can be achieved by the simple and easy expedient of donating some funds, as directly as possible to those who need it most so that they too can appreciate the festive season.
