I'm not one for going bananas over the beginning of the new year. It's the beginning of a new period in the date structure we have adopted and, although its nice to have a party, I think that a better alternative could be chosen.
If we're going to celebrate a day for new beginnings may I humbly suggest we celebrate 1st July as it is when, in 1991, Pringles crisps (yes, thats right, the curved potato snack) were introduced into the UK market. I for one think this was a great move as they're darn tasty and it is a well known fact that providing a smattering of ready salted will increase interest in a buffet several times over. You might well have already put out a bowl at your NYE party...
Anyway. I digress.
As nice as it is to wave goodbye to all the bad things that happened in the last year and say how the next year will be better, it seems worthwhile to me to remember that positive things happened last year and slightly less positive things will happen this time around too.
So Ive compiled a small number of ups and downs that happened to me in 2014.
I now live in a first floor flat.
If you let go of a helium balloon it will fly away. Very quickly.
Apparently theres a basement in my Grandpa's house. I didn't know this. It's quite big.
I dropped my favourite Mr Men mug on the floor. It smashed. RIP Mr Bump.
Happy New Year Folks.
So, apparently there's a National Sausage Week.
I didn't know this, and you probably didn't either. But if you know me then you'll know that I consume sausages faster than a German on speed with a craving for pork.
It was 3rd-10th November this year and I for one am gutted I missed it. According to my go to website for meat info "It's never too early to start planning and looking at how you can benefit." So, as the official date for next year hasn't been announced yet I'm getting worried.
Having put extensive research into when this momentus calendar event occurred in previous years I've come to the conclusion that it will be held between 2nd-8th November 2015.
So get cracking folks. Get those sausages going. Hopefully it will be an absolute banger.
I just hope it isn't canceled, because if it is that would be die würst.
