    And once again it is time to wish all on Fun a very merry Christmas and hopefully a great New Year from all at the Smiffy household

    This past year has been pretty weird in many ways.
    Having retired last November I expected to have a lot more time to myself..
    More time to spend swanning around in the van and on the bike, more time to persue my hobbies ( of which there are many ! ), in fact more time to just chill out.

    I do not think I have been quite so busy for many many years !

    As for time away in the van,, No chance
    Did Spain in Jan but that ended in disaster ( cost us our trailer and the bloody gearbox in the van )

    Managed a few weeks in August and early September but that is about it !
    Poor thing has not actually moved since October !

    We have had some pretty rough news from within the family with folk dying and others fighting on a day to day basis

    but on the flip side....

    We have had MORE great Grandchildren arrive as well as our own wee shit machine in the form of Dillon the daft dog

    Maureen has managed to put in another year of servitude without actually stabbing me, which is nice... and shows what a tolerant woman she is !

    The Garden Ornament ( my project Honda Blackbird which I have been building for the past 4 years! ) is finally at the painters and late spring next year will ( hopefully ) have its final build and get on the road

    But whatever, we are all still alive and kicking and to a great extent enjoying our selves

    So I end this post as it started, wishing everyone out there in Fun Land a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year

    It's not slipped by, it shot past at warp factor 9 and a bit.

    I reckon 10 Olde Farte Years = 1 Worker's Year.

    don't worry next year ends quicker still, about June or so it seems, you life accelerates the older you get. This one went by faster than any before it.
