Is this thing on?

Maybe 2012 will be the year of going back to LiveJournal. I like it here. I like being able to go back through my own and my friend's journals, to be able to revisit significant times with older eyes. Facebook is very 'now! now! now!', not a place for recording the bimblings of your life and mind.

So what *are* the bimblings of my life and mind at the moment you may ask. (You may, I just gave you permission!)

D has just moved up to Leeds, this is good, I get my tea cooked and my bed made for me on an even more regular basis than before! Clearly there are other benefits too but this is before the watershed so I won't go into them here ;)

Got a letter from Companies House the other day saying that unless anyone objects the company will be struck off and dissolved in 3 months. I know we've been here before but hopefully HMRC won't block it this time now I've sent them more paperwork. That said, the threatening letters from Eon and Yorkshire Water etc stopped a while back now so perhaps they've finally accepted that the company will be struck off and they won't be getting anything cos, you know, the club closed a year and a half ago and unless they'd like a 5 year old pc that only cost £100 new, a basic HP Laser Jet and a box with a few Stella Artois glasses in then they're really not going to get owt. Oddly companies that are no longer trading don't tend to have a way of making money to pay outstanding bills and throwing solicitors, court orders and debt recovery companies at them doesn't work unless they're magic solicitors, magic court orders and magic debt recovery companies ;)

In more mundane day to day news I am now far too unfit to even attempt to get fit through the medium of TaeKwonDo. When you're a black belt there's a certain level of ability you're expected to have and hoping the whole class will slow down to a level you can cope with cos you're fat and waddly isn't really fair. So D and I went out for a 'run' last night. Original plan was to run around Burley Park but it was dark and forbidding and had rowdy teenagers on bikes; we ran a couple of times round the block instead. Well, D ran - looks like he might be quite good at it - whippet that he is, I grumbled and jogged and walked and wheezed and occasionally ran. Hoping to change the ratio to include more jogging/running and less walking and wheezing. I suspect the grumbling will stay fairly constant though.

Tonight I have [livejournal.com profile] redfetishfreak round for video watching. I get to meet the new, non-drinking Beckie. This scares me!

I like it here too and I'm glad some people are coming back. Unfortunately the DOS attacks by the Russian government (alledgedly) don't help the cause! I really really want to delete my Facebook but I rely too much on the event invitations I'm afraid.

facebook definitely has its uses - it's amazing for day to day event stuff and multimedia stuff - but bollocks for actually documenting your life

Fingers crossed for the next 3 months. How long do people have to actually object? Is it the full 3 months or do they have a deadline before that?

It's one of my things this year to use LJ more too.

Getting fitter is too. I'm going to try the 0-5k programme (at the gym) as using the treadmill is part of my current programme.

November 2014
