Where is Spring?

The weather in the UK is rather obscure of late. It seems that Global Warming is a phenomenon that is very stacatto like in its manifestation here. Thankfully today we are undergoing a freak bout of sunshine. Its 11.30am, and I'm awaiting a call from the Wedding Invitation company. Despite having some bad news about the venue changing location - after we had printed off the hundreds of invites - we are going to pick them up and have a look at what they came out like. I'll then decide what I'm going to do with regards to reprints. Lesson learned - don't print an invite until you've seen the contract about the venue being confirmed!

Anyway, back to the weather. We like talking about the weather here in the UK. It seems we can moan about it together, in unison. Its sunny outside, and yet here I am typing away about the weather whislt indoors. I'm just upset that on Monday, the weather takes another turn and we are back to the grey damp skies of London. I recall days of yore when Summer was a flurry of blue skies, sunshine and happiness.

I've just had a look at the Cricket scores. Its the 2nd test between India and Pakistan. India, being absolute nincompooks, threw away a commanding position in the first to end up with a draw. They are in a similar position in the 2nd test: India (407 & 407), Pakistan (393 & currently 95/1). I do wish they win, but you see, they are India. Packed full of amazing batsmen and bowlers, and yet when the going gets tough, they crumble. Yet they seem to be the only side to have pushed Australia hard and strong in Australia of late!

Work remains the same. I really have to figure out just what I'm going to do with life. I'm in hot demand there, largely because I just get on with it and deliver, but when it comes to evaluations, I end up mid-bottom table unless there are some wise heads on the counsel, when I top the league. Still, I am more than a rating, I am a guy with a new Paper Shredder - shredding pages all over the place.

Dad is still in hospital, still waiting for the triple by-pass. I'm hoping all will go well.

    You and your father are in my thoughts.

    The weather has been a little crazy here in New England as well. A couple of days ago we had 2 feet of snow on the ground. Today there are only patches of the stuff. In a couple of days we're getting another storm. :0P

    Best of luck with work. Sounds a bit hit or miss, so continue to do the great job that you're obviously doing and I wouldn't worry about the rest.

    Finally, continued well-wishes for your wedding planning endeavors!

    I guess it isn't really summer yet, we were just lucky on Saturday. I got on a boat. It seemed like the right thing to do.

    Keep me updated on your Dad.
