Another year has slipped by…


…and I have a few more lonely follicles on my cranium and a crease or two on my face that weren’t there a year ago (from ‘smiling a lot’ said a close and amiably untruthful friend) but all in all the year hasn’t been too shabby.

The work to surf ratio has been a little low this year due to the Grindstone being so … er ….grindy – so if I was to make a New Years resolution it would have to be to remedy that apalling statistic. You must of heard of that old saying – “All work and no surf makes Penfold a grumpy bastard that you want to keep well clear of…”

So if your mistletoe isn’t too limp from overuse at Christmas then have a slug of champers, join in with a rousing rendition of Auld Lange Syne and stick your tongue down a stranger’s neck. If you’re really lucky you’ll wake up with your hand in the wrong knickers and half a doner kebab on your face…

I didn’t surf today.

PS don’t forget to pop in at the fmb party


  1. I shall be asleep…this year has been very shabby and will be glad to see the back of it…then I shall wake up with no hangover and go to my favourite restaurant for lunch and snog the barman (I don’t know him …so I can do that)…….. I’m with you both on the painting…..and catch you in the dark place in CP penfold ….HAPPY NEW YEAR x x x x x x x
