Keeping the flame alive
We start the new year with our jolly boiler deciding to take some more time off. Either that or it's dead. And we're cold. And miserable. So I might not linger on this blog if that's ok with you. Boilers are just rubbish really. All they have to do is stay working but they wait for your time of maximum need and just give up. We have called the man with a bag of spanners and healing hands.
Good show yesterday I thought and back in the swing of things. Rust and cobwebs blown away (does that work? maybe rust or cobwebs but unlikely to be both) and looking forward to 2012; it promises to be quite a year. And once everyone has gone back to work, we can get this party started. You send an email and back comes the automatic reply 'I am not working till the 18th. Try my underling who might be back on the 14th.' Kids? Back to school! Go Now! Even if term hasn't started! Wait in the playground and show willing. Students? Back to University! Your parents need to rent out your rooms! Take your washing, your late nights and lie-ins and get thee hence. See you at Easter. You'll be fine. We should know, we are paying for it.
(There. That's better)
Now I'm thinking of IRON LADY oldies. You'll have seen the ads for the film and the reviews and posters. Meryl Streep does indeed put in a fantastic peformance and it is a fascinating film, well worth your time. Please send in as many broadcastable songs as possible. You know what I'm saying. Balanced, nuanced, smart. Like you are normally essentially.
Have a magnificent and sure-footed Thursday. See you after 5.
