Thoughts of a middle aged man…..9 July 2014

Its been a while since I put pen to paper, or to be more precise finger to keyboard. I have been completely unmotivated for the last few weeks as I still have whooping-cough and it is really dragging me down. I am no longer infectious but the constant coughing and struggle for breath is very draining and I am over it.

Unmotivated I may have been but there has been a bit going on. Brian has had another three procedures on his back in a very short time, the first two were a complete waste of timer however the most recent last Friday seems to have done the trick. It is early days yet but we are cautiously optimistic.

Brian has more good news, he has been nominated for an award in his field of work. I am not sure how much I can say about it and I do not want to jinx him, but I am very proud of him and his achievements. He is very different from the Brian I met all those years ago.

I have some news on the work front as well, the company I work for is merging with another real estate company as of 1 August. I am not quite sure how I feel about it at the moment, I will have further to travel which is a pain, there is nowhere close to buy my lunch which means I will have to take it, which in turn means being more organised in the morning. If only I could retire, but I can’t.

This could be a good thing though as there was nowhere to move up where I am at present, while there is that possibility at the new place. I will have to learn new software which does not bother me, I just thought I would retire where I am and I don’t really want to move, but you get that.

Winter is well and truly here in Adelaide, and while I much prefer winter to summer, I really prefer spring. At least we are getting good rain this year, the farmers always need rain, and the reservoirs should be full for summer.

I am quite pleased with the way my beloved Adelaide Crows are playing at the moment, onwards and upwards, you can still play finals if you keep up your recent form. Congratulations also to Australia’s newest sports star, tennis player Nick Kyrgios, well done young man, don’t let it get to your head, stay grounded.

Where there is good there is bad, Gerard Baden-Clay, how can a jury make a decision based on the facts as they have been reported in the media. I don’t know whether Mr Baden-Clay murdered his wife or not, and if he is guilty he should be punished, but there must be no reasonable doubt. While talking about reasonable doubt Rolf Harris has got just what he deserved, didn’t he make a fool of all of us, he should never again see the light of  a free day. Then there is Oscar Pistorius, clutching at straws I think is the best way to sum up his current situation, I think the odds are against him.

That’s enough from me today. I hope you enjoyed the read.
