Web design? I don't even know where to begin mate.

Work is getting better for now. Especially since I am not really drinking anymore which is great but also freaks people out when you tell them. I'm not looking forward to the first peer pressure moment.

I feel like something is changing inside of me, I feel empowered, this year will be a different year and one of change. I feel like I have made a huge step forward. I have no real desire to live back in Morzine after the last visit. It was brilliant being there but it is too much a of a bubble for me to live with. It is so self obsessed and not in a bad way but I feel like I need more. And if we lived there we would be poor.

So there it is again, the eternal question, what do I do with my life? I need a break. And the only way to make things happen is to make things happen. Like it says in our gym 'Nothing Will Work Unless You Do'.

I am back at work now and spending my evening on my own in the office not really doing anything just waiting for 10.30pm to come round so I can walk someone into a building and then hang around while they talk for an hour. Hmmm.

I am not complaining, it is just frustrating. I need to do something soon. It is driving me crazy. But is is like Dan said to me on holiday, you need to be in the game, speaking to people with your ear to the ground. I am still gutted that the pub thing never happened but maybe that was a blessing in disguise. Matt coming back will kickstart everything, I am so bored of underachieving. I need to plan for my family and they are the most important thing from now on.

Maybe I just need to jump into it. How about learning Java Script? I need a skill and I have plenty of spare time as I don't watch TV. An hour of that every day?

I'm back from my holidays in Morzine, we've had 2 weeks recently and I loved being there but this last time I really felt closure on the whole period of living there. I love it there but something in my heart has changed recently and I don't believe that I need to be there anymore. I have had two great holidays there and got more riding that I would have done in a month living there so I am happy to just holiday there now. I also want a bit of a change of scenery as well, I need to go to other places, MZ is not the centre of the mountain world.

On my first day back I went out on my new road bike, I have had it for about a week now and I have been talking about it for about a month now so it was great to finally get out there on it. I was nervous about it but I managed nine miles and when I got off my bike I wanted to go again. This was great as I was worried that I would find it boring. My bike is great and it really is very fast, not as uncomfortable as I thought it would be. So no begins the task of training for the London to Brighton Bike Ride. 54 miles of cycling, I am so looking forward to it and I think it will be a really good family day out for everyone.

New ideas for my life are still thin on the ground. I thought about a collective website of brilliant links to youtube etc. It has been done but I think I could do it really well. Nothing ground breaking but it could be great. Bit lame but at least I am still thinking about it. I need something big.

Next step.....

It has been a while since my last entry, things have been pretty crazy since we've been back from France. I have been sucked straight back into the music industry, things never change there! My little niece Lua has been diagnosed with Wilms tumor which is a form of kidney cancer which she is now almost recovered from, fingers crossed. Fran and I have bought a house and have busied ourselves with making it perfect for when we have a family. It is a slow process but we are getting there. It is weird living in a new place again but Walton is a nice place.

So what is next? The next step is to start a family and conquer the world. So how do I do it? I have the enthusiasm and passion to start a new business but I don't know what it would be. I am not posting this anywhere are it is just going to be like a journal for a while. I need an idea, my tetra pak! I don't want it to be in music, food is always something that interests me and I think I am pretty good at it as well. We have the investment ready and waiting. I'd like to do something to do with snowboarding but that is so difficult to get into and there is no money in it, unless we start up something in France and we want to live here.

So the big question I need to answer is, what am I going to do as a new life plan then? I need ideas........

The next post will be another step forward to me doing it!

This is well funny! The best radio voice ever!

Ch Ch Ch Changes!

So an eventful couple of weeks in my life. I've bought a house without even starting my new job yet! I saw Pearl Jam at Hyde Park and they were so so amazing! I love them so much. And also today I booked my first ever wakeboarding lesson for this Friday. So I have that and then seeing some good friends at the weekend and then, boom, back on the grid. I start work for an independent radio plugging company called Hungry and Woods. I am very excited to see everyone I used to work with and get that buzz around hearing new music upfront again. I have missed that. I'll be working on acts that range from Leona Lewis to Example and Lost Prophets so pretty varied.

Here is the most recent Pearl Jam video for 'Amongst The Waves'. I have recently been turned on to The Ataris, who I love so I will put some stuff up here about them. The album of the year to date is Far 'At Night We Live', insanely good.

Make sure you win!

Pearl Jam always make things better....

Things are looking up:

I have a job which starts after the World Cup.
I get to watch all of the World Cup - sometimes boring as there have been too many draws for my liking but mostly awesome.
I am in the process of buying a house.
The sun is shining.
I am going to see Pearl Jam on Friday at Hyde Park with loads of my friends.
I'm getting an iPhone 4.

So all in all I am feeling very positive. The job means I can now go snowboarding in the winter for about 3 weeks and then after that we get married.

Hmm then what? Babies and taking over the world beckons!!

Pearl Jam will be awesome, I am hoping they will be as good as when they played at the O2 last year which was apparently amazing. I am spending the rest of the week listening to them. Which begs the question, which is the best album?? I am not sure on that one, here is my order:

No Code
Pearl Jam
Riot Act

They are all great.

I have found the future of rock and roll and they are called Light Of Doom!

In a time of very little excitement in my life, there are two things exciting me. The fact that I am going to see Rage Against The Machine on Sunday and this band - Light of Doom. I wish I had been in a band this good when I was 12.

Forget the fact that it is on some shite reality TV talent show, they are awesome!!

If you are not convinced, their influences are Ninjas, Boobs and Explosions!!
