So now we move on

Thank you, to all the people who have wished me well and passed on your condolences. As you can imagine it's been a hard couple of weeks, but as my dad would have said "enough now, get on with it". ('It' being whatever I'm supposed to be doing). And that's what this post is about really... we cremated my father last Wednesday, and so now it's time to move on and get on with life. I'll miss him, and always remember him, but I have a life to lead and a family to support so on we go.

A list of the little things that have happened & will happen

I cut my thumb on the ironing board at the weekend. How the fcuk can I cut my thumb open on the bloody ironing board??
I played football on Sunday and we lost 2 - 1 although I did quite well, getting fitter & better with each match.
We have a chimney sweep coming round today to sweep out our floo's (is that right?) so we can use our wood burning stove & real coal fire... the weather has changed, it was 2 degrees c. this morning and what better way to spend a cold evening that sat in front of a real fire?
I'm also playing football tonight, I now have a regular five-a-side game every week, so that will help with my fitness.

So that's about all so far... more posts more regularly from now on.

Peace.

It said 5 degrees on my dashboard this monring, so it must be true what they say about the north!

You're not wrong... I drove back up on Friday, and when I got out of the car, I definitely noticed the difference... it's only a couple of degrees but you certainly feel it.

I've been behind on my blog reading; I'm sorry to hear about your dad.

Simon said...

Your really made that sound as if you were actually using the ironing board (rather than just moving it to get your golf clubs back in the cupboard).

Simon said...

Harsh! But fair...

Colin said...

Simon, I don't belive that you were actually ironing. I hate it!

I have a wife to do that for me luckily.

I hope you enjoy your footie. Speak soon

P.S Can we pop in for an hour when we go to Holyhead- enroute to Norn iron
