Putting out the bins

October 7, 2011

It’s all change this week, chums. Littlejen and I have put lots of our unwanted belongings into rubbish bags and moved almost everything else into temporary accommodation before the mushrooming life form living inside our back wall and ceiling completely devours our home. But please, no violins – our new place is so pointlessly capacious we’ve decided to call it Judges’ Houses, it’s only three doors down the road, and four people did most of the lifting while I stood there pointing at things and fretting about what a few seconds of drizzle was going to do to my complete set of Rouleurs sitting prone in an open-top box. Nevertheless, I haven’t had the time to think, let alone write, about anything other than the project we’ve been calling Chris And Jen’s Big Move. So I’m going to take this opportunity to have a quick break and return next week in a slightly different format.

For some time now, I’ve had ideas for a few longer, slightly more serious bits and pieces, as well as some even more childish ones, so I’m going to get a few of them done before the end of the year. And I appear to have walked out of the Apple store in Westfield with a MacBook Pro, which means I have to somehow justify owning one.

I’ve enjoyed doing The DYNAMITE! Five, but they were starting to get in the way of the other things I wanted to do, and as the season is almost over it seems like a good time to knock them on the head for the time being. The most well-received Five was the Tour de France one, so with you, the discerning reader in mind, next year I’ll do a batch of Fives (A Batch of Fives! Ha ha! I came up with a punning alternative title right there without even trying!) for the major races only (Giro remixed, Paris-Roubaix remixed etc.)

A few days ago I noticed that I got more hits last month than ever before, so thanks for popping by, and a big tip-o-the-hat to everyone who linked or subscribed to my noodlings. It’s all very much appreciated.
