Busy busy B—

Soz for the lack of updates! I’ve been exceptionally hectically busy between work and play, so I haven’t really had the chance to post anything. And apart from that, I didn’t really think there was anything worth posting…! Anyway, my mate Steffie noted that I hadn’t been updating, so I’ve been kinda shamed into scribbling a few words. 😀

Well, the birthday bash went off like a nuke! I was horrendously drunk – so drunk in fact that I left one of my birthday gifts at a pub in Camden. It was a bottle of wine, and needless to say it wasn’t there when I phoned up to check – bummer! So – to Adam, Alex and Kerrie: sorry, guys, I truly am a complete arse… 🙁

Besides all that, I’ve got a ton of work on, which I’ve always said is a good complaint – right now, though, I could seriously do with a looooong holiday somewhere warm. The work keeps on piling in, which bodes well for our little concern, especially given that December isn’t really the time of year you’d expect all this to be happening. In fact, I’m going to be the first staff member from Synthetix to be undertaking international business travel – I’m going to Italy on the 11th for a feasibility study. Oooh, I feel all important… 😀

In other news, the Saab is back on the road – yay! I dug the battery out and charged it up, without considering for a moment the effect that would have on the immobiliser and the security-coded stereo…. After some embarrassment with the alarm going off in my garage, I managed to get it sorted. Close one, though. And on the 10th it’s going in to have the bodywork repaired, have a service and MOT – and then I’m going to be out in it aaaaaall the time, oh yes!

As I write, I’m just in from watching Mitch Benn record a show for BBC Radio 4, and what a side-splittingly hysterical night that was! He’s performing in Balham on the 15th of December – if you haven’t seen him, I hugely recommend you go. Of course if you *have* seen him, then you know you have to go anyway… 🙂

I’ll write again soon, but December’s shaping up to be an insanely busy month. While I’m here, let me just take a moment to wish my twin sisters Kathy & Ailish a mighty fine birthday on the 3rd – go paint the town red, girls! As I’m sure you will…

Take care, people – keep it country.
