Short Jaunt…

For my 50th, my friend surprised me with a trip to Prague, she paid for a 4-star hotel bed and breakfast, transfers, flights and 20kg bag in the hold. I am not too sure if airlines about the world are as tight fisted as the UK ones, but Ryanair you have to pay for literally…

Audiology

I went for a hearing test just before my 50th at Boots and was told that my hearing was a little below what they would consider normal/age-related, that I could not hear the ends of words properly and that my tinnitus could be looked at. I have never heard pure silence for as long as…

Family hey!

I have written about my paternal side of the family in the past and the fact that they are distant due to my father and his lies. For those who do not know, my father was having an affair from when I was a baby and continued for 15 years until my Mum filed for…

Taking the piss, an update…

The more I thought about it and the more I read your comments, the more shocked by the audacity of the wealth management guy. I knew I would have to bring it to a close. So, the WM guy was emailed and told that his ideas were not plausible, not only for the amount of…

Scientology with Joe

Thanks to some of my readers I watched the Podcast/Videocast of Joe Rogan and Leah Remini talking about Scientology. I really like them both, so to have them on the one show talking about the aftermath of Leah’s journey within the “church” was inspiring. Joe trying to convince Leah that she should do pot was…

Taking the piss…

Yes, I know, a little vulgar, but the only title I could think of was from Morrissey, which I was tempted to use, but thought, who of my visitors would guess this. Oh, the alternative was The Edges Are No Longer Parallel. I consider myself a good neighbour, and as well as chatting to my…

Renewed…

So, I renewed my service with WordPress for another year. So, I am sure you are all relieved that my mentally ill ramblings will continue. I was thinking of scaling the cost back down as £84 is a bit much, but forgot to click the switch to stop the auto renewal, so here we are.…

Some people…

M and I are nice and generous people, sometimes to a fault. At Christmas and Easter, we go grocery shopping and spend hundreds of pounds and give it all to the homeless charities to help those less fortunate, and give to the Dogs Trust, Shelter, Centre Point and many more. Today was no different. There…

Challenges…

A new year means the usual crap resolutions, and I totally agree with Bianca Del Rio. I am not good with resolutions, never have been as I tend to break them quite fast, however, I find that if I challenge myself then there is a goal to work to, like my Goodreads challenge of x…

Winter Blues

I love snow, don’t mind the cold, but boy, it depresses me quite a bit. I’m trying to be positive, but it’s heard as fuck! Yes, I swore, get over it.  There seems to be so little sunlight in this part of the world at this time of year, and I love my sun, and…
