Where have all the bloggers gone?

I was just having a little look a my blog, and in particular at the bloggers I name on it as people who keep me amused, so how come out of the 4 people I enjoyed reading, 2 of them have closed down their blog!

I suppose I had best go find some new buddies!

Neighbours from Hell?

Why do people have to be so petty?

I know we piss our neighbours off as we have had a few DIY projects to do over the last 4 years, and even though we don't start til 9am at the earliest, and we are usually in bed by 9pm every night at the latest, they still constantly compain!

Now to tell you all the ins and outs of our hate/hate relationship would take the best part of a week, so I wont bore you, but where is the logic in parking your car 10 foot away from your own gate, just to try and make it awkward for us to park outside our house!

The tosser even got up early this morning after him indoors went off to work and moved his car up towards our gate and left it there ALL day, I don't let them see I am bothered but him indoors (being a man), is foaming at the mouth. Why can't he see that by reacting to the situation, then the tosser next door is winning.

Well maybe not winning exactly, as him indoors has just found a concrete window sill that needs knocking out tonight. Shame that.

Grown up?

And so life goes on, and things do not change much, except, I feel calmer.
I sort of feel like I have arrived. I often get restless and feel like I should be doing stuff, but all of a sudden nothing seems to have that urgency.

I don't want to die of boredom but it really feels good, not rushing to get ready to go out and get lashed up on a Saturday. I am quite content with a takeaway and a dvd in bed.
Does this mean I am old? Nah, just content!

Now before you write me off as dull, please be assured this phase cannot last too long, in fact I will give it 2 weeks max!

Work is still really good, and I have been chosen to chaperone the surgeon in his spinal assessment clinics on a wednesday evening, so feel quite pleased as I have to be all responsible and lock up the department at the end!

I still have not lost any weight and so I failed my mission when I promised myself not to be fat at 40!
oh well there is always 50! or 60!
