Out of whack

Ouchy My back isn’t mega-sore if I keep it moving. That makes sitting down at a computer to do work a little annoying… hence the reason I’m still awake at 1am doing some work. Thankfully it’s improving every day. Happy Birthday! Visited my Gran tonight on the occasion of her 87th birthday. She’s finally out…Continue reading Out of whack


Preface: Nothing personal is meant in this, it’s purely and solely my issue. Please do not take a fence. There seems to be a growing trend amongst some of the better known bloggers, better known than I that is, to feature video clips of themselves in lieu of text. I can’t say I’m in favour…Continue reading Vido

Sponsor me

I have no idea how this will work but as I’ve just dumped the form in the office kitchen, and sent round an “encouraging” email at work, I figured I’d give you beautiful, generous people a shot too. And don’t say I didn’t warn you. On Sunday the 10th December I’m running a 5k (5…Continue reading Sponsor me

Life update

Still here. Busy. Quick post. Feel guilty if I don’t (what’s THAT all about!). Everyone now knows I’m changing jobs. That’s a bigger relief than I realised. New TV arrives tomorrow. New TV stand was purchased on Monday night, collected on Tuesday and was probably a factor in the excruciating back pains that kept me…Continue reading Life update

Dear Bloggers

For the most part, us “people who blog” are a friendly bunch and get on pretty well, don’t we? We are polite, even when we disagree, enjoy leaving comments for others (even just to say “well said!” as that’s just as important as any other kind of comment) and occasionally some of us swap emails…Continue reading Dear Bloggers

Coming Down

Dunno about you, but our Friday night was spent avoiding Children in Need. It’s just awful. But then I feel the same way about can-shakers on street corners… same thing, different exposure. Saturday and, after a quick stop off at Costco, we headed through to Dumbarton to help prepare the rest of the buffet for…Continue reading Coming Down

Fruity Films

Something for the weekend then, and in no small part was this influenced by a Friday afternoon discussion in the office, honest. Starting with the more obvious fruit related film titles (Clockwork Orange, Herbie goes Bananas, and so on), we progressed onto more “pun-ific” suggestions, the best of which was:    Last mango in Paris Can…Continue reading Fruity Films

New beginnings

I know it’s still November, I know we’ve yet to pass Christmas and Hogmanay, but January is already looming large, heralding not only the beginning of a new year but a new beginning for me for, on 8th January 2007, I’ll be joining a new company. I’m hugely excited, a little nervous/scared, but very eager…Continue reading New beginnings

Ahoy shipmates

Tonight we are boiling eggs. Lots of eggs. We will then turn the mountain of boiled eggs into a feast of epic proportions… or maybe just slather them with mayonnaise and add a dash of paprika. Slather. Now THERE’S a good word! No we are not starting some new fancy schmancy diet, we are helping…Continue reading Ahoy shipmates
