Well, it’s that time of year again where I seemingly drop off of WordPress and my blogging productivity dries up. It’s almost as if it’s a yearly occurrence now, but I guess that’s part and parcel with the season.
We’re balls-deep into spring now, and the weather over here in the UK has been glorious for the past few weeks. As such, I’ve been incredibly busy. Due to the weather, I’ve been provided ample opportunity to get into the garden and get things summer-ready; cutting hedges, painting fence panels, de-weeding, jet washing my patio and all that monotonous, uninteresting bollocks. Not only that, but because of the heat, I’ve spent far too much time drinking in beer gardens. As nice as it sounds, and as sweet as it actually is when you’re sat there, soaking up the sun’s warmth, all the alcohol i’ve been consuming is running amok with my once-great (maybe not ‘great’, mildly average) physique. My belly now protrudes over my belt, and no amount of exercise seems to halt it’s growth.
I mean, it’s not recent thing, as my gut has been steadily growing for the past year-or-so now; but I can blame the past few weeks for it, right?
When I’ve not been tackling wasps in the garden, sweating over the most menial of tasks, or drinking myself to death; I’ve been working really fucking hard at my job. It’s been busy, and I seem to be staying at work later and later. There’s just so much to do, and so little time to do it in that by the time I do eventually get a minute to myself at home. I just want to switch off and watch some shit TV, or lose myself in a good game.
If I’m being honest, I can’t really see when the next chance I’ll get to write anything is going to be. Adding to everything I’ve already mentioned that’s been keeping me on my toes, I’ve been attending job interviews whilst looking to take that next step in my career. As daunting as interviews are, I’ve somehow managed to come out on top! I’ve been offered the job that I was most interested in and I’ll be starting there in a few weeks time. So during that transitional period, I can’t imagine that I’ve have a moment spare to ramble on here.
I’ll try my best though!
