I've started...

So I suppose having started this blog, I should write something on it (that is after all the idea of these blog things).

Since announcing the start of my new 'get up and do stuff in the morning' life, I have completely failed to replicate it on the two subsequent days - once due to alcohol intake the night before, and today because I need to be up at the crack tomorrow to fly to Adelaide for our Kangaroo Island trip. Pretty poor excuses both.

On both occasions I told myself the weather didn't look great and there wasn't much swell, only to discover through the majesty of the aquabumps daily email that neither was true.

So here's hoping for some good weather next week when I get back from Easter break. Otherwise the new beginning will have ended almost before it has started.

And likewise, I will actually try and post a bit more (or rather, post more worth reading) from next week. Maybe I'll even post some pics from Kangaroo Island over the weekend. Ooooh the suspense!

Have a good Easter. Happy face scoffing

p.s. I've updated the about me and about this blog pages for that one person who tried to read those earlier and found them blank

Me this morning. Well not me, but it was this morning,
and this is what I was doing, and where I was doing it.

This morning I got out of bed at 6.15am to voluntarily go and do something before going to work.

6.15am. Voluntarily.

This has never happened before. Ever.

I am not a morning person. Never have been. Ask my parents. Ask my wife. Ask her parents. Ask anyone I have ever worked with or lived with. Mornings and Nick do not go well together. Until today.

So I’ve decided that today is a day of new beginnings. So I’m starting this blog.
