Having read a recent “Freshly Pressed” blog nostalgically pointing out the good old days pre technological advancement by Michelle Guo read here.

Forum trolls and cyber bullies. (Blog 365: day 18.)

Having pretty much grown up through my teens during the birth of the Internet and games consoles etc it really saddens me at the state of the online world we have around games forums and the youth of today with how it gets used. I can’t believe I’m saying this but ‘in my day’ the … Continue reading

Meetings and Money. (Blog 365: day 10.)

It’s Thursday! Thursdays mean meetings and presentations at work. I sometimes wonder just how many wasted work hours are used up in meetings. My favourites are the meetings to plan the future meetings. Do you have any favourites? These are the days I wish I had a manual labour type job. But then I remember … Continue reading

I’ve been watching celeb big bro on tv recently and still have a chuckle to myself when I see Lacey’s surname. Arguably the best surname and most apt in history. Lacey Banghard.

Bought a Bissell carpet washing cleaner today. Really cool. Argos have a sale on until the 18th or something like that on all products like this. Been wanting to get one for a while now and to be honest sad as it sounds was looking forward to using it. Decided to test it out at … Continue reading

Footy, simple really. (Blog 365: day 5.)

Depression and Debuchy. (Blog 365: day 4.)

Start with a positive. Really pleased Newcastle have finally signed Debuchy. Hopefully this will help with the back line. Fingers crossed this is the start of a good change and hopefully more players brought in soon. Personally today however I’ve been proper depressed. Haven’t a clue why. Just one of those days where I just … Continue reading

Hair cuts and happy days. (Blog 365: day 3.)

Decided to go to a garden centre this morning with the family. I love the smell of burning Xmas trees and garden centers this time of year. I’ve always been a perineal type of herbaceous guy. No flowers or any of that fancy crap I like a good bush or evergreen. Had a pot of … Continue reading
