Alyson (WIAA,A?) reblogged this on What's It All About, Alfie? and commented:

As my computer is still in "the repair shop" I am limited as to what I can do at the moment, so here is the post I wrote on this day last year, which inevitably featured David Bowie as we were all still reeling from the news of his death 6 days earlier.

Well, today was the start of the first “normal” working week for a while after the confusing festive period. I am glad however as it is easy to get thrown out of kilter by the space-time continuum messiness that happens around this time of year – It certainly has thrown a certain Chain-Ganger, who shall remain nameless, but hopefully all will be back to normal this week! 909 more words
