Sorry everyone, but I slightly messed up my “Enfield Coach” ghost article on Christmas Day; as I expect some of you would have noticed! I took the article from one of the other computers and in the process, lost the menu on the right. At least, I hadn’t lost it, it had just disappeared to the bottom of the page out of sight because that article had been done in a different formatting on one of the other one’s. This is what happens sometimes, when you try to work from four different computers. At least, it is what happens to me being no technical computer expert. Its not really ‘incompetence ‘cause I did try. That’s just me and computers! Anyway its fixed now thanks to . . . well, never mind, its just been fixed!
I actually went out yesterday for a Christmas dinner – or should I say a ‘Boxing Day’ dinner. I’m not going to say to where, because that’s really nobodies business! Except maybe mine and theirs!
Anyway, the person piled up a great plate of food for me and said . . . “You’re eating all that, and no nonsense”. And would you believe? I did! But it was really nice food and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Couldn’t hardly move for a bit afterwards though. But I expect that was because I’m just not used to big meals. Or being ‘pampered’! Lovely time though and I don’t regret having a ‘proper day’ off. (Well, everybody else seems to take days off over Christmas, so I don’t see why I shouldn’t enjoy just one of them!).Its so cold again. But it won’t last forever. Anyway, my new gas fire is lovely and warm, as Speedqueen can attest to. The back room is much colder though, probably because its much bigger and there’s no gas there.
Well, that’s Christmas over. Now we’ve just got the New Year. And then onto 2009 and a load more work and fun! Well, I mean, my motto has always been that you can mix work with pleasure; in fact, if you can’t, there’s not much point in working! Maybe I have a special point in saying that: to be honest, I’ve witnessed so many people who dedicate themselves to ‘work’ at the expense – or with the sole motivation – of ‘down-grading’ others, just to satisfy some particular obsession they might be pursuing. I think that is quite tragic, really, when you happen to see it happening. I just thank the good Lord that I am capable of laughing at such things. Which really comes back to what I said . . . If you have to be dedicated to something – which probably involves material work – at least make it a pleasurable exercise, or just don’t bother to do it!
So then, there you have it! A little Christmas adventure. A lovely meal; a refreshing break, and everything back to normal!
Anyway, enjoy the rest of the holiday folks – because its not yet over!
For the moment,
