January 2024

February 1st, 2024 · No Comments · Life

I know its not just me that feels like January lasted for ever. Everybody was joking about it on Twitter so much that it became a cliche, but it really did seem to drag on. Obviously it has been miserable and cold, but its winter, and although we had a little bit of snow it […]

December 2023

January 4th, 2024 · Comments Off on December 2023 · Life

December is a funny old month. It can just slip by as you focus on getting this crappy year over and hope than the next one will be better somehow. Towards the end of the month a lot of people, especially those with children, knock of for Christmas a week early, making work difficult because […]

November 2023

December 11th, 2023 · Comments Off on November 2023 · Life

Where did November go? It seems like a few days ago it was October and still a couple of months left in the year and all of a sudden its December and life is dominated by mince pies and sellotape. Work got a bit busy so I ended up with a few late evenings running […]

July 2023

August 1st, 2023 · Comments Off on July 2023 · Life

July was a month of mixed fortunes. A month of profit and pain. After June broke my run of three months in a row of Premium Bond wins, I bounced right back in July with three wins that came to £175 in total. I was still glowing from that when I received a big gold […]

June 2023

July 5th, 2023 · Comments Off on June 2023 · Life, Music

After months of dreary rain, cold, and high winds, I finally found some days suitable for flying my drone. The first attempt was just me on my own, down at Wytch Cross to get the hang of it. As I managed that without any disasters, I went down to Arundel to meet up with our […]

May 2023

June 3rd, 2023 · 2 Comments · Life

I really should try to find the mental energy to write here more than once a month, but meanwhile here is a summary of the recently-finished May. It was a good month. Any month with three bank holidays in it can’t be anything other than a good month!

April 2023

May 1st, 2023 · Comments Off on April 2023 · Life

With the days getting noticeably longer and it feeling like there were a few days without rain, I can only blame laziness for the fact that I walked a lot less in April than in March – nearly 60,000 few steps overall and only reached 10,000 steps on 3 days. As I only even got […]

March 2023

April 1st, 2023 · Comments Off on March 2023 · Life

Apparently the wettest March for a long time, and it felt like it. It was a relentlessly depressing dampness all the way through, but with sufficient breaks in the weather for me to get out a bit more – and at least it has been getting a bit warmer.

All dressed up…

January 11th, 2023 · Comments Off on All dressed up… · Life

…and nowhere to go! One of my Christmas presents from Jayne was a nice pair of chunky motorbike boots. A belated present to myself was a new helmet. I decided to treat myself for a few reasons. Firstly, my old helmet is getting a bit loose. It would appear that my head has shrunk a […]

Bad financial planning a speciality

November 21st, 2022 · Comments Off on Bad financial planning a speciality · Life

It is nearly December. The time of year when I remember how bad I am at financial planning. Already my e-mail inbox is over-flowing with reminders of annual payments and subscriptions that will be due in the next month. So far it is RAC membership, motorbike insurance, motorbike tracker subscription, CostCo membership, and probably a […]
