Ows opines III...


Back again. And feeling refreshed: I had 10 days or so holiday prior to a busy three or four months ahead (no that doesn't mean I only write blog posts when I'm at work [ahem]...just most of the time). Whilst away, apart from rugby and football, I watched maybe 10 minutes of news, read no newspapers (online or dead tree), spent barely hour a day online with emails etc, read no blogs etc...and I feel great. In fact I missed all the internaional news (Libya etc) and - despite being in England for my holiday - I didn't even know until today that the by-election had taken place in Barnsley, and that UKIP came 2nd!

Also, instead of the usual large estate/SUV/sedan car rental choice I hired a KIA Venga 3 'ecodynamics' (whatever that means; it could mean the stop/start which had me thinking I'd stalled it) and it was brilliant...cheesy peas! Amongst many good points is that...

I'm sure this included a reference to your sister in law in South America when I read it before I logged on to make a comment.

Anyway, welcome back, yes it's good to move away from the computer for a while, I'm not switching it on after work during the week these days, just lunchtimes and possibly during quiet periods in the morning,

Blimey, you were quick then, I edited it out after only 5 minutes or so, thinking I had better ask her first before waffling on. I guess the blog ESP had you reading within minutes of my posting! :-)

My sis hasn't read or watched the News for years (within reason, obviously some 'exposure' is unavoidable).

...or thinking about it for about 10 seconds...maybe the first version before any edits is the one emailed out.

Hi.






Didn't rush you.

Hello Charlie! I wish I knew what you meant!...or is it my 'new found' tranquility that you don't wish to disturb! :-)

Something like that. Far less witty in the cold light of day!
