Why I Haven't Been Writing Much But Crap Lately

You might wonder why I haven't been writing as much lately. Well it seems that the online adverts for landscaping work took off. As soon as the weather turned for the better people started to phone up. The amount of interest from the adverts surprised even myself. I was expecting a slower but steadily increasing workload but no its really been gathering a head of steam the past few weeks. Last week was the best of the lot, I had enough work to make almost as much the wife, for the first time since I've been here. It felt good. I'm a man, I care about these things. We shouldn't but ego's are egos. I was thinking to myself a few more customers like this and I'll be making even more and then what happens, same week she's goes and gets herself a promotion and with it a pay rise, her second in a few short months I may add, to raise the bar again.

Ay, ay, ay - its enough to make me almost want to break into a Mexican song.

Seriously though, life is good. The only downside, most of the work seems to be coming in from the other side of the city, the side we just moved away from.

Hooray! Glad things are looking up. Too bad about the commute, but things might even out as the season gets going. This is just the start!

Break out in song, it's always a delight. Just don't make it 'I Belong to Glasgow'.
