can I share my new year thoughts with you? promise not to tell the whole world?
something happens to me when I have time off work, off line, off duty, off side , off my Rioja (English speaking people tend to pronounce RIOJA like: Ree-Oh-Ha. Like
Jesus, or Hey-zeus. You can definitely get away with it 99% of the time
but its not really the proper way to pronounce it. In Spain, Rioja is pronounced where the 'j' sounds more like a throaty
'-rk' or 'Ree-ork-ah'. Although its important to know that it doesn't
sound like reorcka, the throatiness of it gives it a bit of that 'ha'
inflection Spanish J's are known for- hence it is a pun on 'off my rocker'); off my head and off line.
I DID CHILL. I have had such a fabulous break doing only one thing ( looking after my family)
my goodness if only that were my only Job I Could be Good At It.
The chill factor did not last....
I'm back to 'normal' and already I have ranted twice , once to a perfectly nice person who works for Virgin Broadband . I may have called him a Muppet (shame on me) and second rantage was to my poor dog who copped for every negative thought that brewed in my 'returned to work' head.. hence a loose connection to the Christmas image below.
On a less rantly note - there is my desk with Darcy's wonderful gift ( enveloped) that I am now going to open and properly play with and my new ( better than an an ipad) tablet... yes, indeedly,
I was sensible enough to return for just one half day, so I have play time now, and, if I keep taking the tablets and drinking enough alcohol, I suspect I may last another year without breaking any goodwill resolutions
