Sadly I failed, so whilst there is only just over four hours remaining of this day, I hereby pronounce that tomorrow will be the day, where many, many moons ago, my mother looked down, and after recovering from the shock, gazed upon the new born babe that was moi.
Yes, one look, and she knew that I had arrived. Second class postage - the stork had attempted to deliver me to two other addresses but was refused entry both times. That shows you the importance of locking your front door - a lesson she never since forgot.
Anyhow, nothing new to report today so with that I shall bid you goodnight....or good morning, or indeed, good afternoon, depending on when, where and how you are reading this.
May the force be with you - otherwise, a crowbar will be just as handy.
