It has been a while since my experience and again want to thank all the amazing people - some who I know and have met and some that I have never met - who have been so kind, patient and helpful. Bless you all - every little interaction helps.
Are there good things to come out it? Well I have learned a few things about myself and my friends that perhaps I would not have had the opportunity to do, and so in some ways this has been a positive experience - and that is how I am going to view it from now on in.
And to that point I re-read some old blog posts from way back over the 'break' when blogging was fun, the world seemed new and interesting and we all felt part of something a little bit special. In fact there were only 12 or so people blogging in and around London and a few abroad - but it felt like an exclusive little club and the things that were shared were brilliant and fun.
Things like a podcast Russell and Richard did talking about planning yet laughing more than talking and a podcast of @Colman getting pissed outside a pub on G&Ts and attempting to talk about planning which still makes me smile.
Which brings me back. To writing. Again. It seems that I was happiest when I had stuff to talk about and share which interested me. I lost interest because of the tidal wave of badly written nonsense and sheer innaccuracy which had the effect of making me more cynical than I had a right to be. And I got caught up in stuff that really wasn't important.
So, I shall start writing again. Even if it is rehashed old stuff - maybe even a short story or two - I'm going to put it up here. Plus some of the small things that I forgot to mention how much pleasure they give me.
So, good bye 2010 you wretched, putrid little boil on the arse of an otherwise OK decade and hello 2011.
Watch this space.
