Number 5 is alive

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

Wecycling the message

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

Hopeless without movement?

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?

Hot to trot – or not?

Pawsably the shortest of blogs but very important. I'm not the fastest in the pack so this may be woofing obvious and the blog pointless but I'm not sure - I am seeing it still. So in the UK it's amazingly warm, hot even, holiday abroad hot. It is a rare sweltering treat. Tarmac is … Continue reading Hot to trot – or not?

Should I stay or should I go

In '82 the clash sang about the decision to leave or stay. Sounded like a troubled relationship. Leave her (miss her), stay and have her (bags of troubles) - I'd have left personally. If the relationship isn't harmonious it is just repeating noise. And talking of noise my cross training workout was unexpectedly interrupted when … Continue reading Should I stay or should I go

Those unexpected things

I love new experiences but some are so random that whoever you tell has that slight sparkle of skepticism in their eyes. But here goes. I stopped at Morrison's on my way home to get some bits and pieces. The hot chicken counter had an offer on thighs so I picked them up to shred … Continue reading Those unexpected things

Indirect flights and their direct experiences

Maybe it wasn't a planes, trains and automobile experience. But like John Candy and Steve Martin's mission to get home for thanksgiving - so was our determination to get to our destination. My colleague Gareth and I were heading to a team away day with our Dutch colleagues in Holland. It was all smoothly planned … Continue reading Indirect flights and their direct experiences

Spring has sprung!

I felt like a sleepy mole leaving his hole. Bleary-eyed, my mind struggled to understand the sensation on my skin, and the blinding light hitting my retinas. Wait, that really hot thing in the sky is, wait, the sun! Finally, spring is here. Goodbye dark rainy nights, the beast is back in the east. Hearty … Continue reading Spring has sprung!
