SCREAMING DAY

Within the 12 days of Christmas, there is one day that I celebrate every year. The date varies a little from year to year, but it is always marked with the same tradition. This is that day, the first day back to work after the Christmas break. I call it…

SCREAMING DAY

After more than a week of getting up when I want, suddenly the alarm goes off at ridiculously dark ‘O’ clock in the morning. That gets the first scream…

This day also marks the end of my Christmas dieting amnesty. So it is out of the warm bed and straight onto the cold weight scales, that have not been used in days and days of lovely foody treats and…

More screaming. Then it is time for morning coffee and find that the relaxing first hour of the day has turned into a ten-minute speed glug of caffeine. And more screaming…

Then it is a rush to find all the things that I need for work and should have put ready the night before, but didn’t. Which results in more screaming…

Then it is out into the dark morning. Realizing, that after all those days when I could snuggle up warm inside, safe from the weather, that I would be spending the rest of the day out in the cold/rain/snow/hail/wind/fourhorsemenoftheapocolipse, or whatever else the world decided to throw at me and there is more screaming…

Now it is time to battle the traffic and make it on time to work, whilst every other driver on the road has either engaged dawdle mode or idiot at the wheel mode. Result more screaming…

And I think that you have got the gist of how I celebrate this day every year. And yes, the screaming goes on all day. Although it might happen on another date, one can’t but help suspect that many others also celebrate screaming day.

HAPPY SCREAMING DAY TO ONE AND ALL

At least the screamers in this post are better looking than me, on Screaming Day. 🙂

WISHING ALL OF YOU A BETTER YEAR FOR 2022

This post is scheduled to go live at one minute past midnight on January first, Belgian time. At which time I will be contacting my family. And will be cracking open the whisky and wishing everyone, including your good self, a happy and prosperous New Year. Let us hope that it is better than the last two.

So let’s stir it up

And Sing In The New Year

This is not the right way to sing this song. It should be sung drunk, loudly and La La ing most of the words, not because you have forgotten them, but because you never learned them in the first place. Still, this is a beautiful version.

Auld Lang Syne

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2022 TO ONE AND ALL

PLEASE TAKE A COUPLE OF MINUTES – AND THURSDAY’S THRASHER

Remembrance Day

This post is scheduled early today because it is the 11th of November. The anniversary of the end of the Great War (First World War). Here in Belgium, and in many places in the world, this is Remembrance Day and at 11.00 am it is the tradition to take part in a silence to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice, in all conflicts, to keep us safe. I invite you to spend two minutes of your day in silence, to show respect for the fallen

The last post at the Menin Gate, Ieper November 11th 2020

I hope more people are allowed to, safely, attend, this year
