Back to reality

Not long back from a week away in Benidorm for the Six Nations. It was an amazing week full of sun, fun, banter and of course the odd drink or two!  It was just what the doctor ordered.  I’ve posted some pictures to my instagram (here and here) if you would like to check them out.  There are more on my Facebook too.  We had a surprise a couple of days in when Johnny, Bev and Ibbo turned up unexpected (at least for some of us!)  Johnny was on his usual form and the shenanigans were many and varied shall we say!

Such as my car deciding to quit on me 3 days before it going to the garage etc. I admit it should have been looked at sooner but due to various things happening to me during that period I didn’t.  I won’t go over it but if you’d like some background please go here and come back. You’d think I’d more to write more but my mind is just empty of other thoughts right now. Oh yeah.  I played some Tetris 99 thinking “I remember being awesome at Tetris when I was younger!”  It turns out that was either in my head (likely) or the fact …
