Ah, isn't it nice to be back in the old place. That new site just didn't feel comfortable. Plus people kept moaning that they couldn't see it properly. I hate to let down any of my regular readers and would like to say a big thank you to all five of you, and welcome back to MarkCity.

Here are some of the things I've done recently but haven't yet written about:

1) I went to New York on business. My god, that makes me feel like a proper grown up with a career and everything. I saw Quentin Tarantino standing in a bar doorway. I stayed in the Chelsea apartment of an old hippie who told me within five minutes that she was a gemini with her moon in scorpio. I walked for miles and miles and miles. I discovered that not everyone in NYC is rude.

2) Butter and I bought some original Japanese wood prints, including this one:

3) I've put together a dozen pieces of furniture. I've put shelves on upside down, bookcase panels on back-to-front. I've hung pictures unevenly. I managed to get my wireless internet set up easily though.

4) I've watched, with great excitement, the opening of the new series of Big Brother, although I'm undecided as yet. They're all so unlikeable. And I have no idea who's going to win. Who knows, Mary, the psychic, stary witch might win over the hearts and minds of the public. Or the stiletto-wearing belly dancer Kemal (who's a bloke, by the way). One thing's for certain, it won't be any of the mammoth-boobed chavesses.

5) I've started seeing another physio in an attempt to finally stop walking like Long John Silver.

There's lots more, and I will honestly try to better from now on, now that there's less DIY to do. Next weekend we're off to Stockholm for the marathon. No, I'm not running. I'm cheering. Expect a full report with pictures.
