Since its a new start, decided for a fresh theme… until this is hosted when I get more control over the design that is.

A wednesday decision.

Well… when was I last here… December… right

So what am I doing back?? WELL! I have decided to give it another go after being inspired from reading Danny Wallace’s Yes Man. He has such a good writing style which is very humorous and jolly… in fact jolly is the perfect way to describe it.. yes.. so there we go, it was another Dan (and a prod from a friend.)

ALSO!! I decided since I have now been in the big working world a year I should really say something… and a lot has happened since December… for starters Christmas has been and gone… if I left this blog any longer it would be nearly yet another Christmas and that would have been embarrassing.

So heres a quick update.

CHRISTMAS!
The work Christmas do was quite a good night even though everyone was very skeptical about it, some hated it but I had a great night in my tuxedo which was 5 sizes too big for me (this isn’t a sign that for the last 4 months I’ve been on a fitness fest… I have lost weight, but not that much ok) but I had fun just going round talking to people from the other office I used to work at. I drank far too much (as usual) and ended up at a seedy Chinese karaoke bar (first time) until 3am.

As for actual Christmas, my Mum was ill so nothing really happened on Christmas day it was boring but instead of getting family over and infecting them, we decided to get family over at a later date but it did give me chance to help cook Christmas dinner… it was edible.

I know its not Christmas but New Year was spent with some good friends, I think it was the first year I was away for new year.. but was nice I enjoyed it lots

WORK
Hey everyone!!! I lost my job in February! Yeah that sucked hard but after 3 weeks of moping round the house I got another job, better paid, better work so up yours previous place!

BUT DAN… YOU WERE MOANING ABOUT NOT GETTING FIT… WHAT ABOUT THAT?
Errr… well I played football once and managed to injure myself whilst we weren’t actually playing and I drank  a lot of green tea… that is all. BUT! somehow I have managed to lose a bit of weight which is good and currently for that thing called lent I have given up Coca Cola as I drink far too much of the stuff… I can’t wait for lent to be over!

SO WHAT ELSE HAVE YOU BEEN DOING?
Well I have been travelling around visiting friends and thats pretty much it apart from spending far too much money on gadgets and stuff… but gadgets and stuff is whats needed.

SO WHAT ABOUT BLOGGING?
Well i do have my SEO Blog Junior SEO which the plan is to update that once a week. This blog may be moved to my hosting server and given a domain but unsure of that yet. I also have plans to start a Motorsports/F1 blog since the start of the 2009 season will start soon. I would also like to do a gadget blog, video game blog, general car blog… but they would take up alot of time that I don’t really have and would probably not get updated as much as this (honest!) and the SEO blog.

I am going to try and refrain from posting game/car stuff on here like I have done in the past… it’s a bit pointless.. this is a blog about me… and thats what it is.

See you in a few months few weeks few days (hopefully)

lazyness is a killer

i have lots of ideas for sites and blogs and things like that. Things that would make me more productive but currently I don’t do any of them.

And after having a look at my current site, and realising just what a mess it’s in I feel a big sort out is needed to be done. I do also have to finish off the redesign idea which can currently be previewed here

But… when do I have the time!

November

Ok, so far too long and my plan of updating this every few days went totally out the window.

So where to start…

Well work is now back in Manchester which is very very good, enjoying being back there, does mean alot less traveling for me which is always a plus, and nice new offices to go with it. The downside I am always very busy and shattered by the time I get home.

My holiday to rhodes went great (and seems like ages ago now) got a little sunburnt but thats only because I am fair skinned. But can’t complain about the weather 35 degrees Celsius every day (and sometimes hotter then that) but 29 degrees at night so sleeping was hard. It was alot of fun and was a nice break from work (week and a half woot!) not sure where it will be next year… or if I could afford it.

My “get fit” plan closely followed the updating this blog out of the window, I keep getting determined to start properly but then I just… well don’t… although at the moment I am eating a lot healther.

I do have two new things which I love in my life. For starters a new guitar an Adam Black electro acoustic guitar which was a little expensive but totally worth it, it sounds so nice and I have wanted an acoustic guitar for ages, so happy I’ve got one now. Also last week after three weeks of waiting my nice shiny new Apple MacBook arrived, for years I have been using PC’s and windows but now I prefer using macs, they just work so much better and the trackpad on the MacBook is amazing, to use a trackpad on a normal pc laptop which doesnt allow two finger scroll etc is just frustrating.

ok so that was brief to say the least but I have caught up, kinda

still here…

… but always busy, things to write about but very little time.

alone at work

not updated in a while… again! and its looking like most of the time I post general me and my life stuff, I write it on the train to and from work. Currently on the way into work where I shall spend today alone as the other 3 people in my office are out all day so apart from maybe the odd person coming in to ask where they are, no one, nade, zilch. Was quite looking forward to it as I can sit there listen to my ipod and get on with things but today its kinda hit me… it’s going to suck.

Been having more ideas to have more blogs about chosen subjects, like one for games and another for cars/motorsports just so this blog is kept to one thing and one thing only… my life. It all really depends on how much I can keep them updated, my time at home is very short now although the weeks are flying by (is it really thursday already!) but it means that I can get closer to my holiday which I booked last week to Rhodes in September. Really looking forward to that especilly because it means I get to spend a whole week with Lou who I hardly get to see anymore (which also sucks) but she is trying to get a job up here… really hope she does. Especilly since its her birthday next month and also we will have been together for 4 years then and its looking like we wont get to see each other.

Right, time for me to get off the train and go to work. *sigh*

British GP to be held at Donnington from 2010

I have just read from the announcement on the Autosport site that the Silverstone will host it’s final British Grand Prix next year and will be replaced with Donnington in 2010 due to lack of govenment funding.

This now means that the work done to Silverstone of moving the position of the pits, soemthing that was being done to secure Silverstone’s place in the future of F1, will only be used for a year by F1.

And now more money (£100 million) has to be spent on Donnington to improve its facilities as right now Donnington is no where near an “F1 circuit”. I would also say that the circuit itself isn’t the best for F1,  especilly when compared to Silverstone (which drivers have praised for its variety of corners). So will the layout of the circuit be changed?

The way I see it is Bernie Ecclestone doesn’t see things like you or I.. all he see’s is big wads of cash everywhere.

I just hope I’m wrong about it all

*UPDATE*

OK so when I wrote this I was forgetting that the British GP used to be held at Donnington (the last one was in 1993). But still I think the current facilities at donnington are not upto the modern ways of Formula One. Just have to see what happens with the £100 million.
