So here we are at the end of another year, well almost, and everyone seems to be making plans and preparing for their Christmas break and it's quite exciting but scary at the same time. I'm going down to Cape Town for three weeks to house sit for my son James, they're going to Spain for a couple of weeks and a visit to my sister in France.
One thing I've noticed over the years is that the odd years, such as the one we've just come through, seem to be really disjointed and tough, odd indeed. Well the new year is just around the corner and then things will, I hope, even out again. I'm going with very little money but my principal reason for going is to look after James's home and his cat and having an opportunity to visit all my friends is a real bonus, so not having lots of money to spend isn't a big deal. I'll be leaving on December 23rd and coming back in the middle of January, hopefully into a new job. I was supposed to have an interview today but because the company is closing on Thursday they are way too busy for interviews. Oh well, such is life.
I've been writing and doing a lot of thinking about superconductivity and levitation but don't really have the math to define what I'm trying to convey so now I'm reading about that language, called mathematics, and trying to come up with the equations that describe what I'm imagining, we'll see how it goes.
At home, because I don't have any work, I've been making Christmas presents for my family and friends. I've been making box frames and putting some of my more interesting knickknacks with a hand written description and explanation into them. Very interesting and really nice, much better than spending a fortune just buying things and much more personal too. So far the reaction I've had to them has been very encouraging. I'll post some pictures when I have some.
For now I'd like to wish everyone who reads this blog a fantastic Christmas and blessings from God and his son Jesus about whom this holy day is all about in the first place.
Bless you all, Geoff.
