It's Not You, It's Me.

Look, I'm really sorry but I am not going to be around for at least the next four weeks. Some of you may have noticed that I have not being visiting your blogs recently.

This is because I am on a seven week training course for a new job and am currently in my third week of the course.  I am having to learn all kinds of brain aching stuff like law and powers and am coming home at night with homework and falling asleep early due to being knackered.
This week I have been learning self defence and am battered black and blue.

I know what you are thinking, Tony Van Helsing is a soft bastard who can't be bothered spending a few minutes to write a post.  Well sod you! My posts take blood sweat and tears and I would not just burble out the contents of my day like some public diary.  You people deserve better than that and I don't want to short change you.
 If you don't hear from me for the next few weeks then please don't give up on me, I will be back in a few weeks with a whole new job and a shiny new uniform.

Until then my friends, keep up the good work and watch the skies. I promise I will return.

The title for this post gave me a massive shock Tony, I was worried when I read the opening line that you were going to leave for good which I would not have been okay with. You taking a break to go off and do something that's very important however is quite the opposite. Best of luck on the course mate, I'll miss your wisdom but at least you'll be back again, enjoy the next four weeks mate.

I won't give up on you! It's totally understandable that you need to take a month off to finish the training. Sometimes, like it or not, real life does intrude on blogging. But I'll be eagerly awaiting you back soon!

Hope the rest of the training goes well with a little less black and blue!

Good posts (or the stuff I write) takes work. Who can blame you for not having the energy to write anything? Take what you need.
Now, if you were learning SUPER powers, how cool would that be?

Could just get your cat to fill in for you? Works for us haha

Matthew: I will genuinely miss you my friend. Keep blogging and I will be back. You wouldn't believe how hard this course is. I am a long way out of my comfort zone.

Kianwi: life doesn't get any realer than this shit.

Al: All of your posts are good (except the crap ones). Look after everybody.

Pat: I have three cats but would not trust them with my blog.

Okay. I'll miss you. I'll hang on and wait for you to return.

Dear Tony,
these are exciting news - and they sound promising and good. As it is always worth to set priorities (and know one's strength) I can understand you well. And will of course follow you further on (maybe you show us then a photo of your new shiny uniform). Good luck!

Tony Van Helsing is a soft bastard who can't be bothered spending a few minutes to write a post... How do you know your other readers were thinking that? Good luck, Tony. You'll pull it off, no doubt about it.

With a moniker like Van Helsing I will be expecting you to beat everyone else black and blue. Keep going and good luck!

Phew learning that stuff must be pretyy tough. But good luck!

I have missed ya, Tony. Glad to know you've gone missing for a good reason. Good luck getting through the rest of training.

Will you get a hat with your uniform? I hope it's one of those roundy ones. Probably not a furry one, though that would be cool. Wait! Are you going to be a beefeater? If my husband kicks off before me, I'm going to try to marry a beefeater so I can live in the Tower of London - what do you think of that plan? Maybe you can introduce me around to your beefeater friends when the time comes, eh?

When I first started my little blog, I had no idea how time consuming it would be. Not just posting but trying to keep up with all my favorite bloggers. Weekends are pretty much the only time I have to try to catch up.
Good luck with the training and sorry to hear you bruise like a little British peach. ;)
