January

Would you mind ****ing off now please? Weve experienced your limited charms and have had enough.

The other winter months offer crisp frosty mornings where the sun occasionally shows its face. You might get actual proper snow. All you can offer is wind, rain, drizzle, sleet, wet snow, and hail. Its dark when we go to work, its dark when we come home. Everyone is skint and miserable. Nobody takes time off so the number of people commuting peaks making the roads and trains even more unbearable. People say the days are short but they feel ****ing long to me.

They we should take vitamin D because we dont get enough sun at this time of the year and I do. But in the same was as alcohol free beer isnt really beer, and margarine isnt butter, it just isnt the same as being out in the sunshine and warm.

Auto Express - six issues for a quid. Offer must end soon (and then immediately start up again).

Without January how would you ever appreciate Summer?

Reminds me of a quote from from "White Mischief" where in Africa the sun always shines, when waking up:-

"Oh God, not another f*****g beautiful day".

I must admit that when I went to the Philippines in December 9 years ago I was glad to be cold when I got back.

For about 10 mins anyway.

Remember to gain access to your hotel carpark you need to sound your horn:


Just toot and come in.

Sod off January so far you have brought me
1. My first ever dose of gout in my big toe. After 2 weeks of hobbling about and taking anadin I went to the Doc's thinking I'd broken it. It's "flippin'" painful!
2. A few weeks ago I managed to gas myself by leaving a cooker ring on overnight!! Took a day or 2 to dawn on me how close to being dead I came!!

Not looking good for Feb either as I turn 50

Bye! Bye!

Hello February, only 7 weeks to spring.

Tomorrow morning should be entertaining, all the dry January folks traipsing in to work with a thumping head
