At last, 2009 is on its way out.
For us, it’s really not been a great year. There’s been a lot of hassle and crap along the way for both of us, and hopefully 2010 will be a lot better.
I’m not pinning all my hopes on it or anything – but there is some hope and some planning in place to make ’10 a better year than ’09.
Equally, I’m not going to witter on about it being “the end of the Noughties” or whatever. Partly because it’s not, but primarily just because it’s not relevant. It’s a new year, but it’s just another day. As per the previous post, I need to put some work into making ’10 a better year, but in some cases (work, for example) it’s more about just staying in the same place, and letting some consistency/constancy stay there.
2009’s been chaotic and hard. I just want 2010 to be a bit easier, a bit more structured.
In this case, a woman calling 999 because her cat has been playing with string for two hours. I have no idea whatsoever what makes this an emergency in anyone’s mind (or what passes for a mind in this case) but I do think that anyone who thinks it’s an emergency deserve a punishment served up by a stun-gun.
Yet again, you can tell that the Festering Season is over and done with, the fucking Easter Eggs are in the shops!
Yep, that’s Christmas over and done with for another year.
Well, another nine months, ’til it all starts coming in to the shops again.
