BACK ON THE AIR AFTER THE HOLIDAYS!

Happy New Year everybody,

Well there I was on Sunday evening staying up stupidly late watching rude tube on the TV showing the best web videos of 2009 when the reality hit that yes tomorrow WAS Monday and yes it's back to work time! But surprisingly when the alarm went off (or is that on??) at 5am I was straight up and into the shower grabbing a coffee and heading to work. I usually have the odd moan in work but it's amazing how much you miss being behind the mic when you have a week off, mind you I was loving the cosiness of my bed in the mornings safe in the knowledge that no alarm would be ringing in my ears :) I had a fab Christmas too, back home to the Mammy for Christmas dinner and the usual enjoyment of sitting in the living room belly almost full (needed room for the selection box) watching a few movies on the TV. I don't eat ham so there was extra turkey for Rob this year :) That meant on St Stephens Day it was turkey with chips and gravy and the next day I had a turkey curry. Oddly I only ever eat turkey at Christmas and I don't know why.

Santa looked after me this year because as anyone will tell you I've been a very good boy! A new Tom Tom Sat Nav, vouchers for paint balling, a bottle of green Polo (my favourite aftershave) the "Scrubs" box set and the obligatory selection box are just a few of the gifts I received this year, lucky boy eh! But I have to say the most enjoyable part of the Christmas holiday was on New Years Day. As you know on New Years Eve we had some snow and the next day the ground was pure white. I got a call from my mate Wayne who told me to grab whatever I could get my hands on, a biscuit tin lid, black bag, coal sack, WHATEVER because we were going to mess about in the snow!! Now I know I'm 29 but there was not a snow balls chance in hell I was missing this. Just behind my house the is a very large and most importantly steep hill......BINGO!!! It was the most fun I have had in years. About ten of us were up on the hill and I know there are videos knocking around too, if I find one i'll stick it up here.

Anyway it's good to be back and I hope you continue to tune in to myself and Laura in 2010. We appreciate very much you emails, texts, phone calls and of course your listenership in 2009 and we will be up every morning with you in 2010 keeping you company whatever your doing.

Happy New Year :)
