Website Expansion

Posted on

I’ve added some new sections to my website. Most of my blog posts have lyrics as titles. I never credit them so I’ve created a page which lists them all. See if you guessed them correctly. Lyrics I like to write articles. I’ll never be published IRL so they’re going up here. Articles And more […]

Fings I Love Friday (3)

Posted on

That time of week again! 1) Aurora. She has hit the bottle, presumably in a bid for attention: 2) My new gym regime. It feels really good and makes me finish work on time so I get to the gym before it’s too busy. 3) Flight of the Conchords. Saw them in Birmingham this week. […]

Let’s get physical…

Posted on

…let me hear your body talk. I love how this song is always associated with working out when it’s really about doing it! Ha! I said doing it on my blog! Today I had my first proper weights exercise session. Man, it was tough! I’ll give you a breakdown as I understand it: 1. 12 […]

Wanted to belong here…

Posted on

…but something felt so wrong here. So, following on from my post on spiritual enlightenment I have come to a conclusion. Spending time alone in hotels will do that for you! My quandry was deciding whether it’s possible to have a spiritual awakening when you haven’t really done anything bad in your life. I even […]

Fings I Love Friday (2)

It’s that time of week again and what a week I’ve had! 1) Coloured socks. A little over a year ago I upgraded my sock wardrobe. I was bored of plain black socks so I got some day of the week socks and a full set of these bad boys: 2) Not sleeping in hotels. […]

Travel

I sing to myself that I’m gonna be free

Posted on

…but the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see. This week I went to London. Without meaning to be too negative…what a soul sucking place it is! Whenever I pass through our great capital I get overcome with sadness and exhaustion. It really does suck the juice out of me. A lot of […]

Photography

Forget all your troubles, forget all your cares…

Posted on

…and go, Downtown! I have recently started following some photography blogs/sites in the hope of getting some inspiration. Photography is one of my “things” at the moment. I used to be really good at it and when the missus started taking pictures for her blog, it awoke the beast within! One of the sites I’m […]

Errr..yeah so I missed my first Things I Love Thursday so I’m starting a new trend! 1) I love riding my bike. I feel so free and the wind wraps and swirls around me. It’s a lovely, electric feeling. I sound like I’m five years old! 2) I love One Day Remains by Alter Bridge. […]

You can’t run from the future…

Posted on

..You can’t change the past. You’re not that fast. A little late with this one but I had to review it. I got the new Slash album a few weeks ago. It’s been described as Slash and Friends. At first glance you think “Oh God not another one of those crappy celeb collaborations (abhorations??!!)” but […]

We could dance and party all night…

Posted on

…and drink some cherry wine! Last night was really nice. We sat out back and had a really nice meal, cod wrapped in bacon, cooked in vegetable stock with saute potatoes and green beans. Another one the missus concocted magically which was enjoyed as we sat in the glow of the sunset drinking wine. We’ve […]

Do you like to do it yourself?

Posted on

If the mood strikes. How is the mood striking you now? G’day! I like photography, the missus likes photography. She likes to photograph food and while the results have been good, she’s been limited by the terrible lighting in the kitchen. It’s not like the cottage in the Dittons, that’s for sure! So, I’ve decided […]

So, in the morning when the rooster crows…

Posted on

…pack your bags and get ready to go. Today I listened to the first Black Stone Cherry album. I love their second one and this one ain’t half bad. It starts out as a bit of chugfest, which isn’t bad really but they’re so much more than that. Then you get a song like Hell […]
