Edging away ... sometimes lifechanging decisions are taken but not enforced overnight ... they 'sip through' changing little by little. Am I the same man I was 12 months ago? Not sure but I made a decision 2 years ago and although it did not change my life right there and then it seems to be taking root and doing it now for me. Maybe patience is a virtue -- and for good reason too ! It pays off in most unexpected ways!

I wonder if a number of people around me are indeed correct - I get the impression that I am simply written off as not caring enough, that there is somehow a wall that stops overinvolvement. Is this true? Have I stopped being a real friend and have resigned to a superficial analysis of my friends' needs and wants. Am I an afterthought in their lives? Are they in mine? Does it make a difference? I ask myself whether this is simply a defence mechanism as I cope with the ever-increasing amount of 'things to do' in my life and how I perceive my role.

5 years and counting .... who would have thought? In my untrained, man-eyes, 5 years does seem like a solid amount of time for a marriage. It is not bad at all - so 5 years and 2 toddlers later here we are, celebrating this evening but I am not sure how.  Maybe getting everyone to sleep just a little bit earlier would be celebration enough. Maybe not ....

Heeeeeeeeeeere is Johny ....

What's eight months ? It's nothing - it is nothing compared to eternity, but I guess it is something, compared to what has taken place. Father again - sleepless again, and the receipient of those first-thing-in-the-morning smiles that only toddlers and young children can give you.

I have aged, my hair has gone grey and I have put on weight, which I cannot seem to shake off. I do not find time to visit any new eateries or funky new places around town; I am calculating incomes and expenses as I did when I was 20 years old, but somehow there is a sense of achievement -- and a sense that all is possible. I cannot seem to shake that - maybe it's the optimist in me seeking satisfaction.

About Me

There is not much to say that is not covered in my posts... this blog was created because, well because writing has been a passion of mine and communicating is high up there on the list too...
