After an extended break I'm back in my blogging chair refreshed and hopefully with a more positive outlook of life than my last post before Christmas. After a suitably carnivalesque Christmas, I hope to approach this blog armed with highfalutin words that will allow me to elucidate myself.
This blog, as well as helping me disport myself, is also a project to redound to my reputation. I can sometimes be a touch quixotic but I am rarely lackadaisical. I hope this will be helped by one Christmas gift, a book called How to Sound Clever: Master the 600 English Words You Pretend to Understand When You Don't.
Although looking to raise my game and improve I will always be straight talking as I don't want to become abstruse or come out with Delphic pronouncements. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first four months of blogging, am grateful for the thousands of people who read my thoughts, and will endeavour to write with brevity and levity as I wouldn't want to become circumlocutory.
