Cutting For Ian

There were unsettling scenes yesterday as thousands of fans of the disgraced singer Ian Bieber descended on the prison where the god awful little creep is incarcerated. Fans waved toddlers in the air and took to Twitter with hashtags like

#itwasonlyonebaby

and

#itwouldhavehadsexatsomepointanyway

in order to profess their misguided support for the foul actions of the rock singer.

Locals were aid to be horrified at the crowd's reaction.

"He's a horrible, disgusting person, he makes me sick, hanging's too good for him" said one local woman. "And I'm none too keen on Ian Watkins either."

I don't normally make any specific plans for the turn of the year, but on the other hand I do like to have a few projects on the go...

Weight loss - I've put  bit on over Christmas, so dropping half a stone to be back down to a 5 stone loss would be good.

Keep On Running - I ran 598 miles last year, and feel loads better for doing it. I'll do my best to keep this up, the exercise keeps the weight off and makes me feel good.
