I wasn't well a couple of weeks ago and despite recovering long since, it seems always to sit on my chest after these days - trouble with a job involving speaking all day, it seems to be a while clearing properly! Nice to get to the hols and catch sleep back though!

I'll spam a bit to try and generate some life around here...so how is everyone?

I'm kinda glad to be back to work! Full of cold though...not good for my half marathon in less than 2 weeks!

Otherwise good though - got the travel bug back so just excited to save for the next journey!

I'm feeling good! Working in Beijing for a couple of weeks - I haven't been here for over 5 years and its changed so much. And we have lovely clear blue skies too. Oh and I'm looking forward to going to Singapore for the GP in just over 2 weeks - :bounce:

I'm just back at work after a week off, but quite frankly I could do with another week off already

I'm ok thanks. Just recovering from a rather stressful few days at work. This time next week I will be sunning myself in Malta and trying to forget that it will be a big birthday!

Had a really peculiar dream last night that I can't quite shake from my mind, so thought I'd share it.

All the cars had made their way to the grid & the usual media interviews & last-minute preparations were taking place, when Fernando & his crew of mechanics assembled in front of the Ferrari & proceeded to do a version of the New Zealand Haka, complete with chanting & posturing.

Does anyone else think I might just be a littlle too preoccupied withi his Championship struggle? :D I think all of Fernando's Samurai quotations are starting to have an effect on me :P

I am going frantic! Wondered if anyone can help - I remember a couple of years back there was a youtube video showing a small boy dreaming of Michael in F1 and of course the punchline is that it was the 2010 WDC Seb Vettel. Does anyone else remember it and can you help me find it again (foolishly did not save a copy)?

No - but thank you for trying. It was a small boy going to bed and dreaming of F1 and his hero of the time Michael - and then of course at the end the reveal is that it was Seb Vettel - so not actually him as a boy but loosely based on it. And I just really liked it.

But that video is nice - he was a sweet little chap wasn't he? Well personally I think he still is..
