Sorry for the lack of updates, but the usual Christmas frenzy has had me out of action (or in it!) for a little while. Christmas Day was a feeding and drinking frenzy, and as per last year’s precedent, hugely enjoyable. Big up to the Camden massive for their superb hospitality!!! Alright, sorry for the Ali G impression, I know it was bloody weak…!

New Year’s Eve was spent partly in an incredibly smoky pub in Greenwich, then the remainder in the Jenkins place in Lee. A good night was had by all; even though I was driving at the beginning of the evening (ergo not drinking (much!)), I made up for it in style when we got back to chez Jenkins at 11pm! Bed at 5:30 am on New Year’s Day – not bad at all…

But now I’m paying for it, you see! I’ve got my chest infection back, and that’s kinda dampening my New Year spirit. No resolutions were made, so none have been broken. Those who know me well will be aware that that means absolutely no revision in lifestyle whatsoever! Oh come ON…! 🙂

I had jury service this week, which was a shocker when it dropped on my doormat a couple of months ago. As it happened, it wasn’t so bad – I was supposed to be there for two weeks, but after my first trial concluded I asked to be excused because of my burgeoning ill-health, and they let me off the rest of it! Ree-sult…

One of the less pleasant aspects of the festive season was getting a blowout on New Year’s Eve – mounting the kerb outside the off-licence! I’m still a bit suspicious of that, as it was a brand-new tyre, but not a lot I can do about it now. The cost? A few pence shy of £100 to you, guv. NNNNGGGAAAAARRRGGHHHHHH!!! If this car starts to turn into a money pit, it’s gone, I tell ya!

Well, here’s to a mighty fine 2004 for all and sundry – keep your eyes on the road and your powder dry, and you can’t go too far wrong!
