Thoughts of a middle aged man…..10 January 2013

Advertisements

I spent most of today reading a biography of King George VI, not everyone’s cup of tea I know but it is keeping me off the streets and I am quite enjoying it. The book is full of amusing anecdotes, most of which I have not read before. I only wish I could find biographies about lesser known royal houses as well, everything seems to be about the British.

When I was tired of reading I got onto YouTube, you guessed it, videos about racing pigeons. It is becoming quite difficult to find videos I have not yet seen as well, although there is one I might actually order, it is about a race held in Great Britain in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The Queen’s lofts are at Sandringham, the Royal Family have been involved in pigeon racing since the mid-nineteenth century when Queen Victoria’s uncle, the Belgian King Leopold, made a gift to her and Prince Albert from his own loft.

I also found the loft I want today, it is not exactly what I need but it is very close, and I could have it made with a few modifications and then complete the fit out myself…..Stop laughing Brian, you will be helping me. I think I might have to suck up to my eldest son Kane as he is currently the best handyman amongst my brood.

Tomorrow is the last day of my holidays, except for the weekend. I am really looking forward to going to work on Monday, I think it will be an exciting year as the business continues to grow.

Brian’s career continues to go from strength to strength, I believe his two cents worth is now worth about three cents. I have not seen him happier in his professional life, it is high time he found his niche, and find it he has, 2013 is looking very good for us both. Thank you for reading.
