One Last Scream In The Dark

Sunrise on New Year's Eve


The year is done and so am I. I feel a bit lethargic to be honest and won't be going full tilt at the finishing line like many of my fellow countrymen. It's been a strange 12 months and I'm not sure if I'm sad to see it go or glad to see the back of it. A bit of both. As usual.

This year I discovered the joys of Speedway, bought a house (or part of a house), finished my year long photo blog Seven Days, started a fiction blog, became an 'Idler', briefly 'fell in lurve' and became unofficial match photographer of Maryhill FC. I may have done other more exciting or interesting things somewhere along the way, but I can't for the life ofme remember what they were, so you'll have to use your imaginations.

As for tonight, I'll have my slippers on and my feet up after a nice wee curry from Adeel on Maryhill Road. Maybe a bit of 'First Footing' after the bells. As for you lot........have a happy and safe evening, whatever you're up to.


See you all on the other side..................


A misty haze floats just above the river Kelvin.

Happy New Year, IllMan. The list is quite nice I have to say.
I'm wishing you some more of these and others, too.

Hope you had a good new year and are feeling better. I am suffering from the lurgy myself - quite useful as it provides a great excuse not to go out and be merry, miserable sod that I am...

Belated Happy New Year. At least you got to see the sun rise. We went to an ancient stone circle to see the sunset and watched the light sort of fade away through the gloom.

Szelsofa - I prefer to do the resolutions in retrospect. I always think if you say you're going to do something, it never gets done...........

Cocktails - Aw! Sorry to hear that. Get well soon....
My sinuses are still all mucked up, but apart from that, I'm fine now.

Birdwatcher - Cheers mate! Happy New Year to you too. A stone circle eh? Interesting..........can't always rely on the weather I suppose......
