So final blog for the year as we head into 2015. Now come on it can’t be 2015. It seems like only yesterday it was De La Soul and Mantronix. So OK I will give you 1990 is now a long way away but it was only the other day we were heading into a new millennium and my clubbing days were nearing an end and here we are 2015 and hurtling to 2020 which in my opinion is a date that is from science fiction and yet in reality is just around the corner, wow. No big new years eve for me. Even back in the days of my clubbing excess 1994 I could never be arsed with New Years Eve. Full of once a year twats and impossible to get home from anywhere and if you do manage it there is a taxi driver waiting to have you off big time. One of our best night out was back in the first January of 1995 at the o-five-one. With all the once a year twats spent up on New Years Eve it was the hardcore regulars (Thats not hardcore music may I add) and the club was only half full at that but what a night we had ! In other news going to Tesco’s tonight to stock up on a few essentials for New Years Eve I spotted some iced buns and childhood memories leaped at me. Imagine the shock when I got home and none of my kids would have any. You like Icing I asked , yes was the reply. You like bread I asked, yes was the reply. So whats wrong with iced buns ? We don’t like them was the reply. I have brought up a trio of female snobs. Back in my childhood an iced bun was the height of the treat world and would put a broad smile on my mid 1970’s angelic face. Now kids are expecting some kind of Hershey super deluxe treat as standard.
So 2014 and another year races past a year which most probably seen me go to more gigs than ever and of course I bored you all in June with tales from Glastonbury and expect a repeat performance in 2015. January 2nd 2014 seen me go for a 4.5 miles run and over the coming months a lot of effort was out in and I got up to 20 miles in training before the big race day on 25th May. Still gutted with my time of 5 hours 10 mins 34 seconds. It was a great effort from me but deep down I know I can do better. Depending on work commitments I plan on doing the 2015 race or a different marathon to get under the five hour mark and I promise that is that. May I add here the biggest thanks from the bottom of my heart for the £638.96 from all the people who sponsored me. I got a nice letter off The Christie (Click letter below) thanking me for raising the money a cause close to my heart as The Christie effectively gave my mum a near extra 10 years of life after she had a very poor diagnosis of Ovarian cancer.
Early 2014 seen the traditional February cultural review trip to Warsaw and 2015 will see a trip to Hamburg. The dream of having a legal drink to see Liverpool win the league came the closest it ever has but alas the wait goes on. A lovely family holiday away in August makes you realise you don’t have much stress free quality time with your family and on an added note 2014 has seen nobody kick the bucket always an added bonus as the years advance. I somehow became Radio City news go to man for a weather quote doing several interviews. Not sure how I quite managed to blag that one next step TV.
So thats that see you all in 2015 and the all new annual health kick starts that will most probably not even get past the first weekend in January but my heart is in the right place. 2015 will hopefully see the end to this evil coalition though I fear Miliband might not even be able to bring that home. Many thanks to all the regular readers of this blog as we become six years old in July !! I wonder what surprises 2015 has up it’s sleeve after 2014 had a few jokers in the pack mainly involving friends. Musical memories involve Tea Street Band, Ali Ingle, Henry Priestman, Massive Attack and Metronomy and that really is that now.
