Autumn leaves a-falling…

Wow – that came around quickly, didn’t it??? It seems like only last week we were sweltering in the grip of some of the hottest weather in living memory, and now the rainy weather has set back in… Ah well, nothing lasts forever, does it??? Just Christmas to look forward to now – and maybe Hallowe’en, although I might give the trick-or-treating a miss this year!

I’ve had a funny kind of month – sorry I haven’t really been keeping up to date on the old ‘happenins’. It seems that I’ve spent my time either building up to a hangover or recovering from one – sometimes simultaneously! Between various events, social visits and a slowly developing alcohol-fuelled relationship(!), I’ve not had a whole hell of a lot of time to keep the site in shape.

Last week, my sis Jhone and nephew Caelum were over to visit, which meant something like 5 nights of alcohol on the trot. Since I’ve been softened by the English lifestyle, I can’t really sustain that pace anymore! Needless to say, by the time she went home I was suitably enfeebled by alcoholic toxicity and desperately in need of a system flush – still am, as it goes! 🙂

Just a quick note on the fundraising side of things: huge thanks to everyone who dug deep and sponsored me – it will all help to make a difference, and I really appreciate it. Watch this space for details of the next extravaganza…

October is set to be another busy month, with work busying up again (and I was so enjoying the rest!), and numerous social obligations to fulfil (I make it sound such a chore, don’t I???) – although I’ll have to cancel my travel plans to Turin for my friends Anna & Dani’s wedding! Skintness prevails, unfortunately, but I’ll get over to visit them soon enough.

I think I’ll have to plan another party chez moi – the place is feeling quite bereft since the last shindig, and I do love a good bash. Especially if I don’t have to travel for it! 🙂 Anyone who’s interested, keep an eye on the site – this is where you’ll hear about it first.

Plans are afoot to put some life into the old website, with numerous options being considered. Any suggestions to the usual address or the message board please, folks – what would YOU like to see on happenins??? You never know, I might even listen to them…. 🙂

Right – got to slope off and see my brother and sister-in-law in London; it’s been a busy time for visiting relatives! Can’t drink too much, though – I’m still attempting (with limited success!) to detox.
