I've been busy. And by busy I don't mean unable to surf the Internet or check my emails, but busy enough so that I don't get the chance to sit down and write anything of a reasonable length. (more than 140 characters)
As you can see, it's been a while since my last post, and I'm afraid to say that the reason is mainly 'Crown Green Bowling'. Now, I could bore you with the facts of the sport, and the rules, but to cut a very long story short, you throw 2 'bowls' at a 'jack', and try and make them stop closer than your opponent's bowls. Then, after the game you have a couple of beers, and have a laugh. It's fun, trust me.
Anyway, tomorrow, or rather today as it's after midnight, will be the first Saturday that I can remember that I do not have anything planned. No bowls. No motorbike riding (this is something else I've started doing this summer). Just the whole Saturday to myself (unless Claire takes me shopping). And I'm a little scared!
Usually, by one o'clock I'll be out and have something to do which will last me till after 5pm, by which time I can get home, relax for a little while and then open a beer or two (or 8). But tomorrow is different. Nothing planed to start at one o'clock. Nothing to pass the time, which make me scared that the day will feel like it lasts the full day.
Is this winter just going to be boring? Are the ever darkening nights going to be a prison of unmanageable days that are everlasting?
I was complaining when I was busy, but now I'm not busy, and I'm worried I'll have nothing to do. Perhaps a winter hobby? But what?
Anyway, time will tell! Watch this space!
