Happy New Year
Can you believe it was ten years ago that we were all wired up and ready for the new millennium? We left work on the Friday thinking that nothing electrical would ever work again. Y2K? What was that? If it was around now Apple would find an app for it.
10 years ago my ex-wife was pregnant with my son and we went around to friends for dinner, she was pregnant too and it was horribly boring as we watched the world welcome in a new century from the couch. Tonight we are staying at home, probably I reckon for the first time since I was 16 but I am really looking forward to it. The three of us are going to pop out in a while for a glass of bubbly (start them early is what I say) and then once we get home I'll open a bottle of 2006 Chateau Margaux with the wood fire blazing and watch a couple of films I got from the video shop this morning. The simple life.
2009 was pretty much absorbed by the birth of our daughter at the end of October and as much as my son is quick-witted and smart, she is beautiful and cherished. Our lives will never be the same again, just enriched.
The world has known better years and I have many friends and acquaintances that have lost jobs, to you I know that luck is just around the corner. To Addicks everywhere let's raise a glass to the re-birth of little old Charlton and to everyone that comes by here on a regular basis to read or to comment, thank you and all the very best for a happy and healthy New Year.
