Green Tea

As time goes on I think more and more about my health. I’ve not really been eating that healthily recently, but I’m in the mood for eating more fruit and vegetables, and at least attempting to get my five portions a day. Over the last week I’ve been introduced to green tea. One of my […]

Most Haunted Series Four – #8

This week’s venue: Wellington Hotel in Cornwall. Not much happening again this week, what with Derek’s failure to become possessed or even many meaningful discoveries, but this episode was at least entertaining. The high points for me were the trips into the “haunted” woods, where Yvette wet her knickers when spooked by evil Simon (“It’s […]

Poorly sick

I’ve been off work today for only the second time in about five years. I couldn’t sleep at all last night for some reason – I felt like I had constant indigestion or something – and I had that feeling at 6am that I was about to throw up. You know, when your mouth just […]

Meatball Sub part 2

My influence knows no bounds. I was chatting to the owner of local sarnie emporium Megacobs about favourite sandwiches, and I brought up that my absolutely favourite sarnie of all time is the Meatball Sub from Subway, and she reckons that she could do an even nicer version, especially considering that Subway have a tendency […]

Attention Cat Owners

Those of you that own cats should be aware that behind that cute exterior lies an evil shitting machine. For every sappy woman stroking her pussy and cooing there’s an irate gardener with cat shit on his gloves thinking of somewhere to buy sacks, get bricks and the fastest way to the local canal. That […]

Ageism stinks

I’ve been looking for some temporary accomodation recently and went round to look at a house in Beeston last Friday. It’s a house-share thing with three rooms, only one of which is occupied at the moment by some 25 year-old female teachers’ assistant. Well, the house was rather nice, small but with character and there […]

I like meat

On friday night I was lucky enough to win the “Meat Raffle” in the pub after band. This meant that I won a bag full of Mixed Grill for my £1 wager. Today I tasted some of these winnings. I have to say that the burgers in there were some of the tastiest patties I […]

Microsoft thoughts

You know, it’s hardly suprising that Microsoft have so many detractors. Sure, they’ve produced a user-friendly desktop environment that’s used by about 90% of the known universe, so they’re doing something right. It’s just that they seem to be trying to deliberately piss off non-MS users. Take, for example, Hotmail. I use Hotmail for my […]

Most Haunted Series 4 – #7

This week’s episode saw the team return to Edinburgh to explore Mary King’s Close, a collection of streets and houses since built over since the plague struck in the 17th Century. The place looked really creepy, and with it’s history of death (many plague victims perished within those streets) you’d think that something interesting would […]


Yesterday I played in a brass band contest in Buxton with my band Carlton Brass. We played Hollywood by composer Goff Richards, and won second prize behind hot favourites Diggle. As you can see, by the time I took this photo Ray was a little inebriated, especially having drunk some of the port and brandy […]

Jessica Anne

Welcome to the world Jessica Anne, my new niece! Isn’t she just lovely? Mother and baby are doing fine, sister Hannah seems rather pleased with the new addition, although I’m not entirely sure how long that’s going to last. Father Phil is very proud. No doubt this little ball of fun will develop into the […]
