Well I am back and thanks to all my customers who directed me to their destination.
I was off for 18 months owing to Covid and I have forgotten so much of the city.
Building sites which have grown into apartments while I was away, streets have become pedestrian only and more.Thank God for the good people who kept me on track.
I turned on the SatNav on the phone a few times and it is a crazy navigational aid. I was going to Bishop St and I put it into the phone and it told me to turn around and go back the other way, so I said to the passenger "Is that not Bishop St?" Yes it is, but the SatNav is telling me to go the opposite way. I am lucky to have you on board to keep me right
We have a new grandchild on the way and DV that all goes well.
I was lucky that I had the blog which helped me to write the book, its not brilliant but I suppose it kept me out of trouble. "The steering wheel university" By Paul Malone.
My youngest son was in the same class as the son of the writer Roddy Doyle and at parent teacher meetings we would meet. He read this blog and often told me to write the book,the only thing you will regret is that you never tried. So thanks to Roddy we have it.
My first born has a significant birthday coming up. He lives in London and there was a lot of doubt if he could come home or not, it looks like it is all go.They really grow up fast.
We dug up loads of old photos and have sent him photo books spanning the years.
Just keeping this short and I want you to say a special prayer for the mother and father
in Northern Ireland. For some reason of total madness the mother killed her 2 year old son and stabbed her baby. As a father of 3 boys and 2 grandchildren it distorts all that we believe in.
I hope and pray that everyone involved can find peace.
