Day 329 - Feb 10th Our Saturday started with Olivia's dance lesson, as usual, although it involved me taking her instead this week, while the wife stayed at home with Chloe. The nice thing about these dance lessons is that they don't start until 10:30am meaning we can take it nice and slow in the… Continue reading Day 329 – I sure ain’t 21 any more
Day 321 - Feb 2nd Dry January is over, I made a month without booze... well, if you exclude the pint I had on the final evening, but that was for a good reason! The times I had found it hardest were on Friday and Saturday nights, which were the times that me and the… Continue reading Day 321 – Some things are worth waiting for
Day 318 - Jan 30th I guess when your time is done on this planet, most of us would prefer to slip away peacefully in our sleep. Not many of us would expect to wake up in the morning again... only this time, dead! That's pretty much how I felt this morning, it was like… Continue reading Day 318 – Leave me… save yourself!
Day 301 - Jan 13th I was feeling productive this Saturday, I had made a list of things I wanted to do, and they were realistic targets. Things needed cleaning, sorting and reorganising, and I had a weekend to tick them off my list. However, plans do change, and things can crop up. The morning… Continue reading Day 301 – Is there anything more important than family?
Day 300 - Jan 12th Day 300, the last big milestone in the project if numbers mean anything to you. It is Friday night, and the torture of Dry January continues. It is lovely to be home from work early to spend an extra hour with the girls, but once they are in bed, we… Continue reading Day 300 – We’ll just have to make the best of it
Day 296 - Jan 8th Right, its waited long enough... time for the winter coat to be shed. I haven't been to the barbers for years, I have been cutting my own hair for about 10 years now, and so out come the clippers again. It's a fairly easy job, although it does require a… Continue reading Day 296 – Hair today, gone tomorrow
Day 292 - Jan 4th Over the last few years I have tended to develop a bit of a winter-look as the days started to get cooler and shorter, the hair starts to get a bit longer and the facial hair starts to appear. I blame the arrival of the Movember trend, men everywhere suddenly… Continue reading Day 292 – Get a haircut, ya hippy!
Day 276 - Dec 19th The problem with falling behind on your blog is that in trying to use it as a journal, to keep track of the days, you can easily forget what you've been up to if you fall too far behind. It has been extra difficult around Christmas with some much going… Continue reading Day 276 – Its going to be an uphill struggle!
Day 261 - Dec 4th A quiet kinda day, nothing much to report. Enjoyed a nice ride into work on the new motorbike as the weather had been a little milder for a couple of days. The risk of ice on the road is the biggest deterrent. I don't mind braving the elements, and won't… Continue reading Day 261 – Some days will just be quieter
Day 252 - Nov 25th Saturday was a big day for the biggest little lady, after her usual morning session at the dance school it wasn't long before she was home and nagging us to let her write her letter to Santa. The excitement about Christmas was starting to build a little in the Vokes… Continue reading Day 252 – Letter to Santa
