A very belated Happy New Year to you all. Some people expressed their concerns that I might have been a victim of the recent cold snap, but good news, I am alive and well...chasing the dog off of a frozen over lake only to fall through the ice and die isn't my style (the dog is always fine when you read about these things, don't you find?).
Moving house and such has led to me not playing a single hand of poker since the Monte Carlo event at Dusk 'til Dawn just before Christmas (of which I bust out a little too early for my liking), and I haven't played a single hand online since the 5th December which without question constitutes the longest break I have taken since I started playing poker, even in the early days when it was just recreational. Despite all the hard grinding I do, I am really keen to get back to it so I guess that's a good sign that the break has had a positive effect (tbh I'm probably just keen to earn some sodding money, it feels like I've been bleeding money the last few weeks buying Christmas presents and then all the stuff we've needed for the house).
