It’s an incredible year already.

Maybe I should allow AI to write this blog? I suppose no one will know the difference. Bland dull and robotic. And AI would be just be the same! Get it! Oh please yourself.

So I have managed to get a job. More details in about 10 months time once I have become part of the furniture and become miserable and disenfranchised like everyone else.

I am still in awe that I am here on earth, while others I have known sadly have passed. I have been to four funerals in the last 12 months all I need now is a wedding and I have the title of a quirky hilarious podcast about the pitfalls of everyday life as a middle-aged man navigating himself through various banal English life ceremonies.

My love life is so bad people have raised funds and bought it’s own personal defibrillator. I can’t see the founder is Christianity being able to Lazarus this part of my life.

Over the coming months I have the house to sort. Having burst pipes has lead the ceiling in the hallway needing repair. Funds have been lacking. So it’s going to be a long process of sorting things out in and outside the house. Garden looks like Pripyat. Without the deadly radiation.

Been going through stuff in the spare room which means sorting through decades of tapes, dvds and blu rays. Some of the music I used to listen to over thirty years ago hasn’t aged well. I dug out a cassette player and sat and listened to some screeching sounds. Turns out it was an artist I thought was good. She wasn’t.

I am hoping this is going to be a much better year than the last few. Hopefully by Christmas I will have many things fixed and repaired.
