Happy New Year…. New Decade EVERYONE!
This last one was like a shower with a mixer tap that just can’t make its mind up if it is hot or cold.
The worst of times, the best of times – all in the last ten years. I haven’t had a ten year stretch that has had such extremes.
Ryan – who was nearer a brother to me than a friend, died. – I got married. – My Dad passed away. – Alex was born. – We lost house deal after house deal, money hand over fist, before we finally settled. – We gained 3 cats but lost one. – I had to leave a job due to medical conditions (now cleared up). – Met new friends, great friends – Left another job after a works injury was shrugged off and left us on the edge of losing the house….and then landed in the great job I am in now. – I started shooting and got the highest awarded proficiency the NSRA give, won a few competitons… then had to quit shooting due to the works injury. – I lost the last family member from my Dad’s family tree that had grown up with him and who had all the missing answers. – Boilers failed leaving the house below freezing, water tanks ruptured flooding the loft! – The family car was written off… Too much other stuff went down and up and up and down to mention – but it was a roller coaster.
Things I wouldn’t change for the world – and things I would do anything to change…
Hot. Cold. Hot. Cold. Hot. Cold.
Things have settled down – One day at a time.
Here’s hoping the plumbing is sorted for the next ten years – it would be good to have a bit of middle ground for once.
