It takes a lot of planning to be this spontaneous.

I've been a bad boy. A very bad boy. I have been neglecting my fellow BTZers and I've decided, to counter the long list of other New Year's Resolutions that I'll no doubt dismiss within the week, that I'm going to spend more time in your lovely company. If, that is, you'll have me after such a long absence.

So... *coughs nervously* ...how the devil are we all?

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.

With friends like the BTZ's could I do any better?

There was I feeling very concerned that you'd fallen off the face of the earth! Hibernation isn't really a human thing you know Simon... glad you're back with your fellow fiends... now just sit, stay and  don't move until we say you can!!!

Things are great with me, thank you all. Life has been really busy and so, sad as an excuse as it sounds, I haven't been spending much time online. Those of you who have friended me on Facebook will be able to vouch for that - I'm no longer status updating every day! (Although my Foursquare activities are probably a little excessive...)

Life is pretty good at the moment. On the lookout for a new job, but everything else is great. I can't quite believe I've been with Lee for eight months now...that's practically a year (well kind of). Things are as fab as ever and I think I may have struck the jackpot.

I'm trying to get back into the habit of reading and writing again as I stopped for a long time. I also promise to visit you lovely fiends more often.

Thanks for the welcoming response and for resisting the urge to say, "Who?" Cheesy
