Good To Be Back

Well, a proper hello and happy new year to you. I hope you've had a bit of a relax and wind down amidst the Christmas and New Years' craziness, and are all pumped and ready to go for a new year.  I know I'm not.  

Well, I am a bit pumped, but just finding it hard to hit my stride and get into the swing of things (and any other assorted applicable cliches). My alarm is set for a later time but I'm still just turning it off and going back to sleep. I'm staying up too late doing nothing in particular. I have work to do but my body isn't really coming to the party yet. Holiday Ben is outstaying his welcome and making a bit of a mess of things, not allowing focused, sensible Ben to get a foot in the door. Gotta turn this around and get on top of things..

How has your last month been? I've missed you guys. My break has been good. Just stayed around home mostly, with a lot of trips to various swimming places. Spending a lot of time pottering around the veggie gardens too. Oh, and the kids got a big whopper 12 foot trampoline for Christmas, so we've been doing a lot of sweet jumping. Good times.

Been back at work since the start of last week. Seems like I never left, really. Urgh.  But, onwards and upwards and all that stuff. Kicking off with pre production on the new project, so that's been nice at least. I don't think I could have survived coming back to face those bananas again.

Well, thanks for turning up again, and I hope we'll have a few laughs and cries again together this year.

Twenny Firteen, y'all!

Welcome back Ben :)

I too am having issues getting Holiday Karen to leave the building. But work starts in two weeks so I am going to have to kick her out pretty soon...

We missed you too!

2013 hasn't fully registered yet; I still don't quite know how I feel about this year. I think it's the odd number - I'm a bit OCD about evens.

Thanks guys. All the best with getting rid of the unwanted guest Karen. And Belle, hope you come to grips with the oddity of the year.
