Getaway.

It is upon me, I can nearly taste it behind the vat of blackened coffee I've just drunk. Drank? No, it's definitely drunk.

Two and a half weeks off. After today's 3-11 shift covering the football and Liverpool's capitulation to Wigan, I'm not back in work until February 15th.

There's a wedding this weekend in the Midlands, then I'm off to see the folks briefly before three days in Dingle spent alone. I've just booked a room. I'm going to put some shape to an idea I've had for a while, one that's been knocking on my head in the quiet times, cajoling me into writing it.

When that is done I'll set about the project proper, maybe stopping for refreshments and cinema appointments and blogging along the way.

Then, just when I'm getting used to the languor, I'll sink into deepest depression at the prospect of becoming a desk jockey, once again.

Hey Radge. Super cool. Have a nice holiday.

Don't forget to enjoy that despairing depression. They don't come along often; make the most of it.

Will you be visiting Funghi in Dingle? Please pass on my regards. The fox.

Sarah Gostrangely said...

Or should I say, dolpin.

Boo.

Radge said...

Dolpin. Love it.

I won't be seeing Funghi. Once is enough. Very boring out on that boat.

Conan Drumm said...

Doing a bit of solitary in Daingin? It sounds like a vocational retreat. I'm sure the Js would love to have you.

Radge said...

Swiss - I did not need reminding. Rags.

Conan - The Js can do one. In fact, no, they can do several.

I am so overcome with envy that the rest of the words after "have fun!" fail me. ;)

Kath Lockett said...

Have fun, write heaps and stay sober. Actually, scratch that last part.

Terence McDanger said...

Wigan. Curses.

Ta ta Rafa.

swiss said...

liverpool's capitulation to wigan....

it's like you've got some magical powers

Radge said...

Hope - Cheers!

Kath - I don't foresee much boozing.

Terence - Sakes.

Swiss - Just missed the highlights. Not happy.

In general - I'll be back very soon. If anything I forecast more blogging than usual.

Susan said...

Oooh, you and I with 20 days or so off at the same time...

I wonder if we're really the same person? ...

Nope. I just checked.

Have a good time away! And good luck with that project!

Radge said...

We'll have to put those 'never seen in the same room at the same time' rumours to bed, Susan.

Darragh said...

Not being a desk jockey can be overrated. Trust me on this.

A bit.
