What is it about January? Some people dread January because of the cold weather and lull after the Christmas festivities, others embrace January as they’re glad to see the back of all the hoo ha.
Me I’m a little bit of both if I’m honest, It’s always a quiet month for events but at the same time a great month for enquiries, so I don’t complain too much, plus it’s a great time for a break and this year for the first time ever I have booked a holiday, I’m thinking that this may become a habit!
I’m off to Egypt with Donna, my better half. I have to tell you this and don’t laugh but it does amuse me, in my daily work life I’m very organised and have to have things right, but when it comes to holidays, Donna completely takes over and I love it, I literally switch off the moment I leave our front door, Donna has everything nailed down, everything is organised in military fashion all I have to do is sheepishly follow, head down and drag the suitcases, once at the airport Donna heads for the bar and me, well I’m a bloke I’m straight into Dixon’s to check out the latest gadgets.
Now I know that I’m going to Egypt, but for the life of me I couldn’t tell you where and do I care? Not really, anywhere is going to be better than this weather at the moment. We will miss our kids like mad but we will have the sun on our backs, cocktails in hands and each other to keep company, that generally means card games on my part and daft disco dancing on Donna’s with me rolling my eyes like Leon off Gogglebox, I swear that’s me in 30 years. I love Mr Grumpy and I’m told I play the part well, I would love a night out one day with Karl Pilkington 🙂
January for me is also a time like many to make resolutions and this year I have but three, I think this is important for everyone and they go like this:
Surround myself with people who love and care, box off the time wasters and haters and don’t allow them into your life, we all have them. Be a great boyfriend to my partner but most importantly continue to be a great dad, my children are the greatest part of my life, yes I’m an embarrassing dad, but I feel that’s a big part of my role and a part that I love to do a lot.
Anyway I had better get off and crack on with the day job, I’m singing this evening at a Young Farmers Dinner so I can’t hang about too long, but remember if you ever need a wedding singer or corporate event singer or even a band then give me a call and I will see what I can do for you.
Check out my reviews always makes a lovely read.
Happy New Year
