…and a Happy New Year
You might have noticed I took a little break over Christmas, this was because I thought to myself: “Everyone else is taking a break why shouldn’t I?” With that over with I have to re-motivate myself, drag my lazy backside out of my fireside armchair and get some work done. Bah humbug!
The festive period’s traditional highlight was of course the Christmas party which, I’m reliably informed, I enjoyed immensely. And why not? Free jukebox which we abused and sang along with to our hearts’ delight, while draining barrels like beer was threatened with impending prohibition. Marion picks me up and my mate’s pour me into the car while I shout abuse at anyone who cares to listen, and there is a bowl waiting to be placed on my lap – just in case.
The only dark cloud over this festive period was my team’s pathetic attempts at playing the beautiful game. We shipped fifteen goals in three games without reply, yes you read that right…15! Words cannot describe the feeling as the one you love let’s you down that badly. After losing 8-0 to Chelsea and 4-0 to Spurs I had to face Baggy Bri who for once actually managed a micro smile as he crowed: “Thum twalve gowls uv chrismus, yum lot am loda f****** s***!” (The twelve goals of Christmas, it appears you chaps aren’t very good.)
“It’s a Christmas miracle!” I exclaimed.
“Worris?” (What is?)
“Somebody has finally been able to teach you to count.”
“******* ****!” (?)
I thought we’d bounce back against Wigan but no, showing as much spine as a team of slugs we were massacred yet again by fellow strugglers, 3-0.
Anyway enough of that doom and gloom. It is time to set new year resoloutions in motion. This year I’m promising myself that I will work even harder to finish “Me & Gus on the Roof of the World“ and start a second book; live healthier, eat better and exercise more (that one won’t be easy); be nice to everyone I meet (I know I’ll never manage that but I just threw it in for a laugh.)
Drop me a comment and let me know what your new year’s resolution is, then in a couple of months I’ll check back to see if you’ve kept it up.
Happy New Year my friends, I hope 2013 is your best year yet and brings you much joy.
