Neil Gits A Sore Finger

4th February 2022
Posted by Neil Matthew

There goes January ! I spent quite a bit of the first month of the rest of my life indoors, working at my own sweet pace, ticking off a fair number of jobs that have been on my ‘To Do List’ for a very long time, as well, of course, as going out and about, here and there, doing things I haven’t done for ages. I stepped inside a pub for the first time in nearly two years, had a stroll round Lakeside at Thurrock, went out for a meal with an old friend (Sammy B who listens to the show !) and picked up a few odd bits of shopping in store that I couldn’t get online from Asda. It’s nice to be back !!

I also promised myself that, having got my house into a much cleaner and tidier state last year in the process of sorting my life out, I would make a real effort to try and keep it that way with a monthly once round, armed with a hoover, duster and various other cleaning accessories. This week was the time for that and even though not much really needed doing, I gave the bathroom and kitchen in particular a good scrub, reaching a few corners that got missed back around October too. Alas, I had forgotten what an effort I had made in my “fuzzy state” last year and now I am typing with a rather sore first finger of my right hand through a little over-zealousness – good job there is LOTS of football on TV over the weekend to slump back on the sofa and enjoy !

And, naturally, there is also my “Old Gits Soul Show” to take in as well when the ‘Repeat Play’ goes out on air this Saturday between 5 & 7pm. If it does clash with some of your FA Cup 4th Round viewing, don’t forget you have the alternative option of catching the tunes via “Listen Again” under the “Cool Soul” section on this site …
