Site Update – Technical Difficulties

Evening all.

I didn’t write a post on here last week due to the internet not being ready in my new home, so apologies for that.

Now that the internet situation has been resolved, the next hurdle to overcome is the local weather.  It’s been snowing pretty heavily here and, while it all looks pretty and festive, it does create a fresh set of transport issues.

With the weather being the way it is, I’ve had to spend more time at my parents’ house because of its closer proximity to work.  This means that I haven’t been home much and haven’t had time to watch or play anything for me to write about.

That’s a lot of waffling just to say that I haven’t got a post ready for this week!

Sorry again, folks.
