Had couple lunchtime up Queens Head in Stratford. Had to get back for the kids & drop them off for their tuition. Had a couple with the missus then home. Bottle of wine, pizza and flipping Ghostbusters.
Cheers , Lads !
Johnny - I always thought I'd become a teacher then I walked away from a Degree course I was doing at Hatfield in 1980 , took a job in a warehouse while I waited for my girlfriend to finish her degree [ she's still here ] , stayed there for 7 years , previous to that I'd worked for Barclays Bank - I never did sort out a career , taking anything that came along - job wise my life has been a failure , Life wise it's been great .
If I could have my life all over again I think I'd like to be a Primary School Teacher or work in a Hospital , you ?
Waited until this morning to open my presents as Becky came over from Inverness last night - got 5 books , Suttree , Blood Meridian [ both Cormac McCarthy ] , Sebastian Barry's Days Without End , Neil Mackay's The Wolf Trial [ thanks Shammy ] , a Literary Listography book , pair of pyjamas [ I'll be having my gallbladder removed later this month ] , pair of socks , another book which hasn't arrived yet and an external dvd player for my other laptop .
61 is the new 41 [ isn't it ? ] .
Married to a beautiful English girl too .
True Brit .
I remember hangovers , don't miss them one bit .
Sounds like a good night though .
The Mrs has a lot of Irish family and wanted to go out yesterday so we did. Was good fun, I'm just hoping she'll be a 'culturally conscious' for St. George's day next month!
I don't know why but she keeps trying to bring Irishness into my family. We haven't looked far into our ancestry but we don't know of any Irish in the blood. It's getting silly with her though "you sit in the kitchen rather than the front room, that's an Irish thing to do" "your last name could be Irish we know a few Irish families with your name". I don't mind it, but not sure why me being Irish has anything to do with our relationship!
Happy birthday for yesterday TOMOS, and to many more!
