Vote, vote and vote

So, the day is finally (finally!) here.  General Election Day 2019.  Polls open at 7am and close at 10pm or you might have already voted via postal vote. However you do it, just vote.  I'm not writing this to try and tempt you to vote for one party or another because, quite frankly, the only … Continue reading Vote, vote and vote

Dopey terrorists v the people who won’t let you cower us

When will they learn? Those words aren't meant for politicians in this time of a general election, they're meant for those who seek to try, still, to make us scared.  Don't they realise they are not having that effect? It was shown on the afternoon of 29th November, when, for the second in two years, … Continue reading Dopey terrorists v the people who won’t let you cower us

Bit of a round up

Anyone else make phone calls on speaker phone but sometimes forget they're on speaker phone and do...like a bit of a fart or something? Hope so.  I don't think the person on the other end heard...was a professional call as well.  Maybe they were just being polite. Christmas Dinner Absolutely my most favourite thing about … Continue reading Bit of a round up

It wasn’t the firefighters, it was the cladding – Grenfell

Do you ever just read something and think maybe you've lost the ability to process and what you're reading is complete nonsense?

This and that

Site Stuff I was flitting about the site the other night and I realised that I don't write as often as I would like.  I have said this many times over the last nine years (yes, nine) and it gets on my nerves that I don't write as often as I would like.  It's ridiculous … Continue reading This and that

Hello again! I’m watching the Women’s World Cup

Good day and welcome to the blog I don't write enough in.  I don't know where the time goes.  I last wrote in April and it's now the middle of June.  Not that you'd know it by the weather.  I'm back on the winter jacket at the moment.  I even had to take a hot … Continue reading Hello again!

Life does not begin at forty

Back in December I wrote a blog about becoming a "Cougar".  The reason for this is because I had turned forty. Four-oh, forty.  The BIG FOUR OH. All through my years of life I've heard the phrase "life begins at forty".  Does it? I must have missed that bus. I was warned by friends who … Continue reading Life does not begin at forty
