Gone but not forgotten

Well, it has been a very long time since I have posted.

I took off with Pete and Repete for a month of vacation and when I returned, most of the bloggers that I read regularly had packed it in.

Let's play a little catchup.

The house sold and we moved to one to better enable us to feed our Playland addiction.

We used some of the proceeds to fund four weeks in Central America for the two big boys and me (our first vacation in eight years).

Work continues to play a major role in my life thanks to that irritating need to put a roof over the head and food on the table.

The world has gone to shit in a handbag.

My very sweet, very old puppy dog no longer had any quality of life or dignity left and I had to put him down. My house is a very, very empty place and my heart has a very large hole in it.

Things I have learned:

I am a very, very safe driver. If you don't believe me, take a trip to Central America.

30 hours on a bus in mexico is more comfortable than 5 hours on an airplane.

Central America is easily travelled with just a 30 litre daypack (no need to check baggage).

I can live for a month without the internet.

I will have to post more later - I have been invited out.
