Snow, ice, frost, cold winds…

I hate them all. Actually, there’s not a great deal I DON’T like this time of the year – I’m just a grumpy c*nt I guess πŸ™‚

Was supposed to be down in Crawley today but the weather has apparently brought the M25 to a standstill so I’m in the office.

And bored.

And hungry.

And alone.

So, once the couriers have been to pickup a delivery for Ethiopia, I’m fucking off to get a large amount of food to see me through the day…that’s my plan πŸ™‚

Cold weather…

I hate it. I’ve got the use of a company vehicle – a Ford Galaxy. It’s great, heated windscreen so it’s easy to defrost. The fact it has a seperate key for the doors and ignition means I go out in the morning, start it up, go back inside and have a coffee, then go out 10 minutes later and it’s all de-iced and toasty warm* πŸ™‚

Of course, the other day I had the van (no heated windscreen πŸ™ ), and left a friend’s house at 4am so I had to de-ice it, drive home, then de-ice it AGAIN when it was time to go to work 😐 – bugger…

Still, 8.5 weeks until I’m off to Morocco πŸ™‚

Work is going well – hopefully we’ll keep getting the orders in and general repair work seems to be consistent at the moment so (at the moment), my job appears to be fairly secure.

I’m glad I paid off my credit cards so I have minimal debt right now – you can never tell what’s gonna happen around the corner – seems businesses are failing here almost daily and I want to get my savings up so I have a ‘buffer’ against the unknown.

Whoa…reading back on that, I realised I might actually have picked up some maturity somewhere…

Well, the weekend starts tomorrow. My plan is to have a quiet one, do stuff around the house, and maybe goto the cinema to see ‘Slumdog Millionaire‘ – the trailers look pretty good, all I have to do now is get someoneΒ  to go with (nothing sadder than going on your own) – I asked Harriett if she’d like to go, she’s pretty down at the moment so it might be good for her too – and there’ll still be time to grab a few beers afterwards πŸ™‚

That’s me – a man with a (short term) plan.

Oh, and I got the best possible compliment a few days back – kept me smiling ever since πŸ™‚

Life is good.

Bored already…

I’m bored. And fed up – fed up with winter and cold weather. My ankle is really feeling the cold, it hurts like fuck and it’s making me grumpy.

I’ve decided to do what I did over shitmas – I’m going back into hibernation.

Yes, from the 23rd December until the 2nd January, I hibernated – didn’t leave my house at all. If anyone wanted to see me, they had to come round, I wasn’t answering my phone or replying to text messages – I wasn’t even looking at my emails let alone reading them.

That’s what I’m going to do – lock myself away for the winter and work on my house – there’s so much I could be doing, and staying in will only save me money.

This morning I realised (well, I think I’ve known it all along really): I don’t like people – they annoy me.

So there you go – first post of the year and it’s me whinging. Live with it.
