Winter Woes

2013-01-21 09.40.53

Good Morning and still snowing turning into a blizzard….this was the cold depressing site that welcomed us home after years of voluntary exile to the Mediterranean that sudden flight sensation you feel when you want to retreat to warmness yes that's called you brains common sense saying SCREW THIS SHIT TAKE ME BACK TO CRAP ISLAND I’M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING…..this is a winter of discontent but off course the little ones are eager to experience frost bite.

Tree Protocol

Oh Christmas Tree Oh Fucking Christmas Tree……this is usually the theme song I sing inside my head after Christmas YES YES I’m crazy doesn’t make Christmas trees less fucking annoying putting them up is a hassle all that care and attention just so your tree doesn’t look like a gang of blind elf's attacked it with missiles of tinsel and baubles….once up then its awwwww after Christmas then its FUCK its still there the Christmas tree removal fairy doesn’t exist DAMMIT……then its a matter of how many days can I prolong the inevitable it lasted 18 days 18 days into the new year before we took it down mostly motivated by our departure from Crap Island yes to be honest it would have been sitting there for much longer……we are a species of gatherers, gatherers of stuff an awful lot of stuff that you don’t realise until you have to move to the next hoarding cave.

Late To The Party

I know I’m late with the Christmas post and New Year too……but I’m committing to my laziness and welcoming the new year as I mean to go on completely unprepared and arriving at the end of the party….Well Christmas came once the presents were opened and rubbish packed it felt like a normal Sunday with more stuff to clean up after…New Year it hardly got noticed it was more like the unwanted stepchild that got cast into the corner and told to shut it and so the old year sadly slipped away as I greeted the new year soberly with great indifference…2012 ended it was the best of times but most a soul sucking bitch a year of hardships and misery that we greeted with perseverance and a smile so children could remain completely oblivious to the stress and tears and overbearing fears yes 2012 we survived teetering on the edge….2013 we said goodbye Crap Island having completed Olympic style hurdle jumps then it was HELLOOO England you bastard I’d forgotten how cold you’ve been….SERIOUSLY FUCKING COLD.
