Well I've not posted properly since the middle of September. Some days I've missed it terribly, others not at all. Put simply the reason for this latest hiatus (and probably most others), is lack of time.
At the moment time is taken up with work, looking after my gf, and doing many of the other things that I would like to sit and write posts about. I'm still down on the allotment, I'm still watching the comings and goings in the garden (today for example it's absolutely teeming in birds (probably because it was so cold last night - the garden sensor on the weather machine got down to -5.8 centigrade)). I still watch telly, read books, and watch films (although we haven't been to the cinema in months). What I don't seem to have the time to do is sit and write about them. For me, I have to post when the inspiration strikes, and this normally means when I don't have the time.
So whilst others are writing their reviews of 2008, and their resolutions for 2009, I'm giving you an explanation of what's not been going on here. Will it get better? Probably not in the short term at least. I've just had nearly two weeks work free and this is the first time I've managed to sit down and post that whole time, the day before I go back to work. I won't make promises, but I can't bring myself to close down the blog altogether either.
In the meantime I wish you all a very belated Happy Christmas, and hope that 2009 treats you well.
