What can i say, i seem to be getting a bit slack with blogs lately, i wish i could say it was because i am busy, but i recently had 8 days off work so i can't really use that excuse! Plenty has been going on though, and i thought it time to share that with your good selves!
We'll get the boring bit out of the way first, work! With less than 100 days till the London Olympics everything is go at the moment, which in a way is great as there's no dull moments, but it can get a bit much at times. I've said it before & I'll say it again, sooner the Olympics are over the better! One bonus though is the focus on my dept has improved our conditions, we've got support, & a pay rise coming too!
I started spending some of the upcoming cash recently, as previously mentioned i had 8 days off work starting Easter Monday. Now that day saw the 4th Canvey Island non-league derby take place. Now although Canvey beat Concord for the first time, it was a good day & it was a great laugh in the bar afterwards drinking & chatting to the players & fans of both clubs. Speaking of Concord, our form has slipped a bit lately, but this weekend is the final game of the season, and it promises to be a great game followed by a top notch presentation evening! Depending on the events of that day, it might require a blog all to itself!
Back to my recent leave, and i had the pleasure of catching up with a couple of good friends. First the ex, still remaining friends which to me is a good thing. Had a decent meal & got updated on various goings on with family & work. Then i played a bit of snooker (and won) with an old school friend. She won 1 frame but i walked away overall winner which was what mattered! Partook in a couple of alcoholic beverages too which i will blame for losing a frame! Also did the whole tourist thing in London for a day or two with another old friend, which i really enjoyed. I say it every time but living near London you take it for granted and you don't tend to appreciate what we've got on our doorstep until you really take the time to look at it!
Honestly though, either in or out of work, i am pretty happy with how life is going at the moment, ain't got any major complaints and am enjoying everything that comes my way!
I am going to leave it there for now, mainly because i want to go into detail on West Ham, Concord, the Bulls & Jets, but that's another blog to be filled. Thanks for reading if you've made it this far!
