Return of the Gaz

Woo! I’m back online at last!

So my girlfriend and I are finally settled in to our new pad up in Pype-Hayes. It’s sooooooooo much more peaceful out here compared to living on top of Broadway Plaza (who would have guessed? :P)! And we have a nice big house to ourselves in a quiet neighbourhood. On the downside it’s now takes 20 – 30 minutes to navigate through the carnage that is rush-hour traffic on the A38 (Aston Expressway) every morning, and it’s gonna cost a bit to get a taxi home after a night out in the city centre, but I think it’ll be worth it.

Actually I’ve started hatching a plan to beat the morning traffic jams AND get in shape at the same time by buying a bicycle of some kind (probably a hybrid). The Birmingham – Fazeley canal passes fairly close to our house, so I could nip down there on a bike then follow the canal all the way to the centre, practically right beside where I work! Bonus! How pleasant it will be to cycle 6 miles along a muddy canal path in the cold, pouring rain of an English winter remains to be seen… but then again I probably won’t get around to buying a bike until next spring anyway.

Anyway… so I guess the big news from the city lately is these race-riots going on over in the Lozells area, but I haven’t heard or seen anything about these riots other than what has been reported on the news and by our resident Metblogger, Stephen!
