A couple of weeks ago, I’d have bet London to a brick on that I wouldn’t make it to the Winter Solstice here in Australia, now with it being just a week away I’ll bet odds on that I’ll make it. The books not open yet on the Equinox.
Last Wednesday week, at around 02.00 hours I was carted off to the RPAH, in an ambulance, no way was I getting onto a gurney /stretcher thing, I walked. It wasn’t engine trouble it was plumbing problems, they’re pretty good at the RPA and fixed me up, bunged me into another ambulance later that morning, and sent me home, there to be greeted by a grumpy War Office who’d had her sleep disturbed, and a happy dog. At least my dog’s always happy to see me!
Since then I’ve kind of been doing nothing, haven’t been cooking much either, which makes you know who unhappy, as she’s had to turn to in the kitchen. Still I look on it as good practice for her now.
Been whiling away the time, musing on what to write on this blog site of mine, big heaps of stuff has been turning over in my mind and it’s difficult to know, what to add to bore you with most. So perhaps I’ll just ramble on regardless, which is what I usually do anyway, and hope for the best.
I had started to write a follow up series, following on my time in the insurance industry, those of you that pay attention, may recall me walking away from a well paying job, to join Ansett Airlines, for the unforgettable sum of £19/5/5d, per week. That was the start of the most tumultuous 4 years of my life. Haven’t got around to finishing it, might have a go at it later.
Tomorrow is, I believe, our Winter Solstice, up here in the Southern Hemisphere, and I’m still here, so the books closed.
I’m still at a loss as to what to ramble on about, but ramble on I must, so I think I might write a shorty on how I got into the cabbie business. Well I did mention an episode in my life as a cabbie, in the last post; at least I think I did; so it wont be something new to surprise you with.
Unless anyone/someone has a suggestion/request of course; which is highly unlikely
That’s a picture of me getting stuck into a “Steak & Kidney Pud” in London, November 2005 some pub on Whitehall,not far from Trafalgar Square,
Just thought I’d throw that in to cheer you all up.
I had somewhere to put the pud then, would you believe that come Monday it’ll be four years since I misplaced it?
