The thing with writing here is that once I get out of the habit then it really slips to the back of the queue as far as things I feel I should do.
Also, the amount of writing here reflects just how busy my life is away from this website.
Late December I expressed an interest in being a juror for the Canadian weblog awards and got the nod in early January. It took up a bit of time and it was an interesting process to be a part of. The organisers do a fantastic job of getting the 50 or so jurors organised to look at around 15 blogs each for the first round, and then 10 for the next. And it all happened in the first few weeks of January while I was still on holidays so I had to squeeze it in around being away, and doing other things.
I’ve also been finalising a website for a clown friend, and if you’re in Adelaide and need a clown who’ll entertain the adults and the kids then he’s your man. I’ve seen him numerous times and he still makes me laugh.
We’re also back in the school/sport routine. The school thing is a post in itself and the lad is playing cricket on Saturday mornings again, and baseball on Sunday mornings although we’ve only one week to go. Now that he’s moved up the ranks ever so slightly in cricket we’re in for a longer game on a Saturday morning.
I’ve now resigned myself to just getting out there and enjoying while seeing it as a time to just sit somewhere and relax. After all if I was home I’d be doing something along the lines of chores if I wasn’t trying to sleep in.
And in other news, I’m finally off the hourly paid work roundabout and am now entitled to sick leave and holiday pay again. Unfortunately this is only until the middle of the year, and it’s still doing the same work but I worked out that even though my hourly rate has dropped, I’m still ahead.
