That’s quite an interesting title isn’t it.
What on Earth could I be on about?
Is it about all the number 1 songs Queen have ever had?
Or how I make my World Famous [in my own mind] Rice & Spinach risotto?
Or maybe it’s a list of what I find exciting about the new 2015 Birkenstock designs?
Well it’s none of them, it’s the fact that while you read this, I will be enjoying the first of my 2015 holiday’s.
Better yet, it’s a national holiday for Chinese New Year which means I’m not using up any of my personal vacation days.
Of course, it will be the first holiday I have as ‘a parent’ … but because the little one is still super-young, I can go anywhere I please as long as there’s somewhere I can change one of his daily 8 million nappies.
But the best news – for you – is this means you get a rest from me for 14 whole lovely days.
Yes … that’s almost as long as I’ve been re-writing this blog so consider it my Chinese New Year gift to you.
Now the bad news.
Yes, you guessed it, I’m going to be coming back.
You see even though I love my son more than I can describe, writing this rubbish actually brings some peace to me.
Yes, I know that sounds ridiculous, but it’s true.
It’s like the Betty Ford Clinic for my brainfart thoughts and ideas and if I didn’t have that, they’d reside in my head … slowly building up in my brain which is potentially far more damaging to my family than me spending 10 mins a day churning out this rubbish.
Talking of rubbish, I recently gave an interview to Future Rising about planning.
God knows why they wanted to hear my opinion on what I do – possibly to ensure people don’t make the same mistakes I do – but it seems to have gone down quite well.
Anyway, because I am going away for a bit, I thought I’d leave you with my rambling responses to the questions I was asked in the interview.
Now I know what you’re thinking, it’s because I have an ego that would put Bono to shame – and that’s sort-of correct – however I also mention you lot in the interview which I know will suddenly make you very interested, possibly for the first time, in what I have to say.
And yes, I appreciate that is the pot calling the kettle black.
Anyway, here’s the link to the interview … enjoy the peace until March 2nd and may you all have a happy Year of the Goat.
