Fuck It

It's come to something when your Mother tells you to lighten up, buts that the postiton i found myself in the other night. The most important thing though is that she is completely right.
Basically since knowing we're moving out Katherine and I have been making (and changing) our plans on a daily basis. This only further deepens our pessimistic attitudes.
So........from now on we're adopting the motto "Fuck It" and trying to not make so many plans, stop worrying about everything and enjoying life. Starting with a holiday somewhere warm, where we can forget everything thats been going on and come back refreshed.

Accept makes it hurt less

So i've got used to the idea that we're moving out, infact we got the letter yesterday, so our last day is officially the 4th of February 2007.
This is ill-advised, doing near a 100mph on a wet moterway in the dark.....and taking a photo at the same time.

18:45 94mph

Cleared the cobwebs away by doing half a dozen laps of Hyde Park on my bike in the rain this morning. I don't understand dog owners that don't give a shit when their stupid dog chases me. I mean i one ever caught up with me it's face would probably get ripped off in the back wheel, not to mention the fact i'd eat shit badly.
I've got a few rides i'd like to do in 2007, firstly Leeds to Illkley on the main Otley road, probably before that i'd do Otley to Skipton and sometime Leeds to Bingley along the Leeds-Liverpool canel.

If anyone ever needs motivation, the easiest way is to listen to these three songs back to back.
'My Right'-Screeching Weasel
'A Declaration of Sorts'-Small Brown Bike
'Modern Life'-Strike Anywhere

Try it.

Its been no secret that we've been having a few problems with our flat but the events of today surprised even us. We had a meeting with our landlords to discuss a rent reduction but when we got there the first thing we were told was there would be no consideration of a rent deduction because the owner was terminating our contract so they could sell the flat. They're so sick of all the problems they're just getting rid! We have to wait for a formal letter but soon we will have 30 days to get the fuck out.
It feels like we're being dumped on but maybe its a blessing in disguise, start 2007 by getting rid of the main thing that caused so much stress in 2006.
