A lot of people don’t like birthdays, I guess it’s because it reminds them that they are getting older. But I say age is just a number…isn’t it. Surely the amount of years you have been on the earth the greater the amount the better. You have experience with how the world works. You know what things are stupid to do but you will still do them because they are enjoyable, so you are never disappointed with how things work out. You know that eating that last chocolate even though you are full will make you ill, but you just can’t resist.

You know the greatest pleasures in life can be found in your own family in your own home. Rather than on an expensive gap year you are later to regret but jazz up for all and sundry, when the time comes, that that was the time of your life. Even though you lost all your money, your passport got stolen, you stayed in a dump and you got busted for something totally random by the foreign authorities for a law you never knew existed and spending time in jail where you didn’t know how to communicate because the only words you had learned before the flight over was hello, and a bottle of beer please.

I like birthdays. It’s a time when you can get away with being a pain in the ass and there is nothing no one can do about it. No one is allowed to be mean or strict with you, you can eat chocolate and just basically do all the things you enjoy doing without feeling guilty for doing it. Today is your day.

For me my birthday wasn’t about me getting older. It was about me being me and to celebrate all the things I’ve learned in the year. I am not embarrassed, nor am I fighting getting older. What a complete waste of time and energy.
As far as I can see it, the grey hairs are wisdom, the wrinkles are lessons learned the bent back is from the work you have achieved and the retirement home the medal for making it.

Bitten off More than I can chew

There are times when I have been accused of taking on too many projects at once. But I have never understood what the matter would be with doing that. It’s all in the name of fun anyhow. I mean learning to drive, going to the gym, writing lessons and learning to play the guitar alongside my full time job it was all in a week’s work.

Today, I am hoping to become a regular blogger and vlogger, which requires filming, editing and writing as well as a lot of research. As well as keeping up with my regular e mails, subscriptions, www.facebook.comconnections and games; not forgetting of cause all the books I’ve got out from the library…all nine of them all bar two are textbooks.

One-A text book on how Microsoft Office 2010 works, two-guides on youtube and myspace. Another two on blogging two more on wicca and witchcraft, just for a bit of variety and the two fictions Dracula and Dracula the Undead. Just in case I haven’t got enough books around my house to keep me entertained.

Not forgetting of cause the old job search.


Don’t you guys just love it that as soon as you need the internet for a legitimate reason and not to just play on and watch videos that the ruddy thing will just stop working!?

Me I love it. Seriously I’m not kidding; I mean who wants to send that important e mail, who wants to be searching the World Wide Web for a job when they have no income coming in. It’s the bomb guys, the bomb.

Yes I’m sure you’ve figured me out for being sarcastic. Me sarcastic? Absolutely.
I’m telling you tech hates me. I love tech but if it will break or stop working it will happen to me every time. I have got through four yes 4 mp3’s in just as many years. My phone, my beautiful Nokia E71 constantly freezes on me, and the oven doesn’t even light some times when I want to use it. So annoying.

So the more dependant we are on something the more addicted we are to its services and the cleverer and cleverer it becomes it becomes more and more unreliable. Because that makes total sense right?

Some Food & a Rant


I have only been back in the country for three months and I have already lost track of how many chocolate cakes I have made. I have done three batches of bread buns, one of which I did three batches in one go, homemade pizza, a victoria sponge and four carrot cakes. I think I can safely say that I have been very busy with my time. Yet I am already planning a lemon drizzle cake and a southern cornbread

One of which I can eat in front of the telly with a trashy film and a glass of wine the other to satisfy my sweet tooth at any time of the day. I really enjoy cooking and baking, why well because then it all needs to be eaten, and eating good tasty food with your family has got to be one of the best things I can think of doing. Unlike scoubidou which has got to the worst thing to do ever. It’s impossible yet kids seem to be able to do really intricate things with those stupid plastic strings. How? I mean are they secretly witches and wizards from Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry? From which they have learned a spell to tie crazy knots.

Who came up with the flaming idea? The same person that came up with Sudoku no doubt, I have no logic maybe that’s my problem. I am going to keep at it but I’ve got a feeling that I’ll never learn it.
