I discover that I haven't posted for ages. That seems to be the way of these things though and I often wonder whether I an losing the desire or need to share the minutiae of my life - but anyway...

It's a long 'un... )

Right - that'll do for now. More later.

So where was I? Oh yes the aftermath of New Year.

I got everything up to date again (ironing included) and then we all went back to work - some of us later than others. I had to take a day's holiday on Monday to wait in for the BT man as we were deprived of our broadband intermittently from the 30th to the 4th. Still all fixed now.

And then, of course, there was snow. I came home from work early on Tuesday and worked from home for the rest of the week. The blue screen of death that my PC gave me when I tried to log in to work was unwelcome to say the least but I've sorted it out and it was all systems go after that.

We took all the decorations down and the place looked a little bleak afterwards like it always does. I'll have to make new cushion covers though - the cat has thoroughly laid claim to the old ones!

Working from home is something of a mixed blessing in that I find I lack motivation somewhat when sitting in here and I can think of 1000s of other things to do instead of work but I'm managing pretty well.

I need a new project. My mother knitted a Nativity set (yep that's right "knitted" and "Natitivy") but her eyesight is now too poor for her to put it togther. She brought me all the bits and has asked me to finish it. I shall have to get some toy stuffing and have a go. She also brought down a pattern for a set of knitted Dickensian Christmas Mice which are so cute I have had to have a go myself!

There is also music to be written and although I find myself a wee bit prey to January Hibernation Syndrome I shall have to get off my arse and have a go.

Yesterday saw the band at the Glastonbury Occult Conference. We had a great time in spite of the fact that I reckon the weather kept quite a few punters away. Eileen Daly (she of Razor Blade Smile) turns out to be a top lass with a wicked sense of humour and not at all pretentious - a breath of fresh air is that! I had a blast (one unfortunate incident with the promoter not withstanding) and it was nice to see Dave and H who'd made the trip over from Pontypridd - brave souls!

I guess it's back to work tomorrow, although I'm going to leave it late and ring in to see what the roads are like (A46, A433, A417) before setting off. Cirencester was apparently very nasty on Friday and I need to know that it's improved before I leave home.
