It is with regret that I find that I cannot continue this blog for the time being. I thought that I had won my fight with my illness, but it seems that it was only the first round and I have it all to do again.
The last two weeks I have been keeping an eye on things at the Nova College exams in Haarlem. These are all computer CITO exams and the only thing I have to do is check students ID and sit them behind a screen. Then total boredom for hours. Time to draw!

- Blog of William John Ricketts. Retired gentleman with a young wife and two teenage daughters who are both the joy and the bane of his life. Four grown up children from a previous marriage, hordes of grand-children and two great-grandchildren. And a horse, called The Horse. Good at DIY, bad at golf. Good at GPL (Watkins Glen 105.71), bad at planning. Still looking for a career after 40 years in the wrong one. A failure at most things. I thought I might go into law. My eldest daughter became a lawyer. I had dreams of being a good cook. My youngest son became a great chef. I thought I could play the guitar. My other son showed me how to really play and write wonderful songs. I took my other daughter to my judo class at the age of 4. I never got further than a blue belt. She is the world taekwondo champion and has 5 black ones. In the words of the Fast Show's Unlucky Al - "Bugger". Just kidding - of course I am proud of them all and amazed by thier individual achievements and that they all did better than me in the things that I wanted. But who needs a musician who can cook while quoting the law, and kill you with one finger if you don't keep to it?.
