Life update #17: Happy new year…?

Well, we’re nearly a month into the new year, and I can honestly say that it’s been fairly shitty so far. I didn’t make any resolutions in a drunken haze this new year, as my wife and I thought instead it would be better to just be more general, and aim as a family to actually make something of this year, and to not sit back and let life just pass us by. Embrace an American, anything-is-possible attitude rather than being reserved and English and a little bit timid. However, before we’d even really got it into our heads that it was January and no-longer 2015, things started going tits up. Not going into it too much, but we had a family bereavement, I had the after-effects of the tragedy from just before Christmas, and other things started going generally quite shit. So I apologise for the lack of blog posts this month. I will rectify this soon. I’ve still got a new books post to put up from September, plus a big ‘un for October-December, and some sad news about independent bookshops, which I will do soon. I promise. Reviews, I’m not so sure about. Archaeology may make a reappearance, too. About time if it did. One good thing is that I’ve got back into reading more lately, and am ploughing through my ‘to read’ pile at a steady rate- even if this does mean more things to never get round to reviewing.

Anyway, for now I think I’ll hit the bottle and get rat arsed. Oh wait. It’s work tomorrow. Maybe another night. I’ll settle for another post or two and a few more chapters…
