Misspent Youth

Misspent Youth - When I was 17 / 18 I attended the Sixth Form at my school with the intention of obtaining a couple of A Levels. I choose to do this at school rather than at college because I...

Got time to invest?

I have really gotta get myself one of these....

Aardvark Curse Strikes Again

Along with about 75% of the free services I sign up for and actually use, it appears that Blogpatrol.com has bitten the dust within about a fortnight of me installing it. Am I genuinely cursed, or am I just a...

New Project

I've been a touch busy for the last few days. What with Sharon still being ill, looking after the kids and working. But what little free time I do have (between 8pm when the kids are in bed I've managed...

Addictive game of the day

It's not too often you come across a reasonable original game format, or at least not one that actually works. This evening I completely wasted over an hour playing Insaniquarium. Complete madness. I have no idea whether this genuinely is...

Fresh & Juicy

Fresh & Juicy - The author of Fresh + Juicy appears to be having a few problems. I quote "I signed up with Blog Spot Plus 25 and Blogger Pro on Sunday. I've been debited the money from my account...

Ouch

2 1/2 hours sleep last night because Connor's got a nasty cough. I'm soooo not a happy bunny this morning. I figure that babies are cute as a defence mechanism. Just as you're about to snap, they smile or gurgle...

Reportage

I've never really understood the fascination for cricket. In its capacity to induce severe boredom it ranks right up there with Golf, Crown Green Bowling and competitive walking. So imagine the horror of being given the job of "over-by-over" cricket...

Blogroll

It doesn't seem that long since I last updated my blogroll but I've had another go today. Added: Saltire F1 Blog - A blog by a journalist who is currently writing exclusively about Formula 1. Fresh + Juicy - Another...

Ho hum

Well, not exactly the result I was hoping for, but the new rules do seem to be playing to McLaren. If this continues it should do Coulthard some good. Although I'd suggest he doesn't want to make too many of...

?????

Check out Alonso! Still hanging on in there in second place. Of course, if Coulthard hadn't dropped out he'd be in 3rd but it's still a top result for Renault. And then, just as I type, Alonso came into the...

Nooooo!

With Sharon home but bed ridden, it falls to your truly to look after the children. At precisely 6.15am Connor decided it was time I got up. By 6.30 I realised he wasn't going to go back to sleep and...

Hypocrites

I find the commendation coming from Russia and China so bizarre that it’s almost humorous. Russia: "The military action in Iraq is being conducted in spite of world opinion, in spite of the principles and norms of international law and...

Its begun

No joy. No celebration. The fact that I support this action does not mean that I am in any way happy about it. But maybe the fact that, less than 24 hours in, Saddam launched a type of missile that...

Update

Sharon is feeling a little better today but the quality of the nursing care is bringing her down a touch. Still in a lot of pain, she had to wait 6 hours for one dose of pain killers. At one...

Deja-vu

I've been here before recently. Only not. Sitting in front of my PC noting my woes in public having just spent a couple of hours getting all of the kids stuff ready for tomorrow. Wife in hospital, still quite poorly....

See men shredded...

See men shredded, then say you don't back war “There was a machine designed for shredding plastic. Men were dropped into it and we were again made to watch. Sometimes they went in head first and died quickly. Sometimes they...

Tears before bedtime

Sunday night saw the final episode of Cold Feet broadcast by ITV. An award winning comedy drama it's not something I've watched avidly, but Sharon has so it's been on whilst I've sat here at my PC. I've managed to...

All gone

All gone - Well, it's over. Thankfully her operation wasn't cancelled and, after crawling out of bed at 6am we were at the hospital for 7 o'clock (we had time for me to stop for a McDonalds' breakfast though). The...

Fingers Crossed

Tomorrow morning, 7am Sharon is due to go into hospital to have her gall bladder removed. This is the fourth appointment that has been made. The first, in December, was cancelled with a weeks notice. The second was cancelled on...

A heart felt plea for help.

I need to learn about blogging tools, RSS feeds and how to create a headline / first part of a story grabber from a blog page. I have no idea where to start. I know a little about HTML and...

Money Sink

My Xmas present to Sharon was a car. It stretched the budget a touch, and we couldn't afford anything flash. With just a budget of 500 (I still hadn't started work) we managed to find a Citroen AX 1.4 TRZ...

Aaaaaand relax......

What a week at work! The last 3 days have been absolutely hectic and I've been getting home completely knackered. My stack of ongoing cases is getting higher every day and the work involved in each seems to get more...

High speed worry

I had a dizzy spell this evening. No ordinary "stood up a little too quick" touch of dizziness. No. A dizziness bomb exploded behind my eyes setting off nausea and putting lights in my vision. I thought I was going...

And now for something completely different

A shed load of 'net links. Some of these really deserve their own post but I just don't have that much time. To Google (tm) - Google getting agressive. When Wordspy.com defined the word "google" (little g) as a verb...

Evolution

This weblog has changed somewhat since I started it. At the time of my first post I was facing redundancy, my wife was seriously ill, I had just started a new business and my son was about to be born....

Ick

Today I'm feeling sick. I went to work as usual but by 11 o'clock I had pains in my guts and was having to make regular trips to the toilet (which is a touch embarrassing in a very small office)....

Disappointment

According to The Daily Telegraph 9 out of the 11 British human shield have gone home already. Their politics are vastly different to mine and, I have to admit, I thought them rather foolish and idealistic when they set of...
