Thoughts of a middle aged man…..22 March 2014

Earlier this week I had a good laugh at the expense of the 10-year-old son of one of my co-workers. The poor kid got in trouble at school when asked what his favourite television show was, his answer, Hard Core Porn, duh I think that might be Hard Core Pawn. What a difference a couple of letters can make.

On Thursday night Brian and I did our weekly grocery shop, exciting stuff eh! Anyway we needed a new baking dish so we picked one up ready to cook a lovely roast over the weekend. Now you have already heard me complain about the fact that our house is a tad on the small side, what we did not know is that our oven is as well. The damn baking dish is too big for the oven, something else to sit in the cupboard ready for the next house. ūüôā

Last night I watched¬†The Time Traveller’s Wife starring Eric Bana as Brian had an early¬†night, this¬†was a very¬†touching¬†movie. The storyline was far-fetched but the excellent acting almost made it believable. The ending was extremely¬†sad, I must confess to having¬†had a quiet sook.

On a sadder note it is nine years today since my sister-in-law Jan suddenly¬†passed away. You were a unique character Jan and you are very much missed. Towards the end of Jan’s life her sister and I were divorced, but Jan always made me feel like I was still family, as do all of her surviving siblings. It is strange but I still feel closer to my ex-wife’s family than I do my own family. I may not see them as often as I used to but we still chat as if things have never changed.

I have made up my mind, I am not going to wait until we move again to have my racing pigeons, this is the year. Next year we will be first year back racing so I have until September this year to have everything in place, pigeons included.
