And so it begins…

Another year over and another just begun. The festivities have passed and I am now sitting in a dark, grey room with my new found minion…Dexter. He is rabidly chewing through a bone only pausing now and then to growl at the wind howling from the open fireplace. I have acquired a companion for the long lonely days and I am starting (albeit slowly) to get used to it.I am as previously mentioned a creature of habit, used to the calm silence of my drafty home and now I am typing to the backdrop of my frenzied fiend of a friend mauling his prey.
