I haven't watched 80's classic Short Circuit for years. Tee and I thought we'd have an 80's night and everyone's favourite 80's robot who 'is alive' following an electrical storm reprised my youth when he appeared on the screen. Ally Sheedy, Steve Gutenberg and Steve's helpful Indian sidekick Ben all brought back youthful memories from … Continue reading Number 5 is alive
Recycling in the UK is a standard practice today, although a bit late compared to other countries. My awesome Canadian mate Trev poked a joke at me a few years ago. I was saying how great recycling is. (I was on one about saving the planet). He said that Canada was recycling when he was … Continue reading Wecycling the message
I sometimes forget how blessed I am to have the ability to move. I think most people would say the same, it's something we take for granted. I am reminded of that gift while I am bed bound, having temporarily lost the freedom of movement. So there I was, leaving work after a long but … Continue reading Hopeless without movement?
While he doesn't like blogs I hope Alex will allow a hall pass on this one. I've worked with Alex for 4 months, I am new in my job and new to the industry, but Alex has years of experience and is generous with sharing that knowledge. Something I will always be appreciative for. He gets … Continue reading Alex
It is the little things that nark me lately - if they are little. There are certainly more important things to be focusing on. Unity on all the 'isms, famine, homelessness, terrorism the sad list snakes on. Although focusing on the good stuff is equally important as it reminds us of our humanity. I love … Continue reading My journey to work today
Love the Easter break - but I'm always happy to move on as the egg jokes eventually get bad. The desperate attempt at humour around linking egg to commonly known words is just bad and obvious. It's just silly in my mind. It's all eggcruciatingly bad, anyone doing the 'shell sin' will end with egg … Continue reading Happy Easter – but..
A dilemma - seeing a stray dog on the street on my way to work. I couldn't leave the wagging tailed smiling staffie, he was too close to a dual carriageway. Fast driving, unforgiving morning drivers and cute happy staffies don't mix. Personally, I'm not keen on a dog with a bigger jaw than me … Continue reading Wandering pet – worried or wistful?
At this time of year it's a chilly walk to my car from the office. What gets me through the rush hour traffic, is the cosiness of warmth when I open my front door. That lovely feel of heat that blows the cold from my face. The sound of miaows from the happy but hungry … Continue reading Just walk on by?
As the beast spreads his icy cold claws across the UK, I'm left with a cold question. I've seen people treating today like any other day, and others maybe a bit too erratic. Poorly dressed teenagers. Shelf stripping shoppers. Busloads of OAPs being anything but. The driver who throws caution to this siberian wind - … Continue reading The beast is here
I'm with my beautiful new bride, my wife, my wifey. Sat here, privileged to be here, hearing this view, seeing this view. We're feeling this view. The tide rolls in, washing the shore with a salty hello. Crickets, unseen are singing their crickity endless song. It's a lovely second floor view of a wide open … Continue reading Tide and crickets
