My dream cottage

My Father: Third year anniversary

On the 01st of April 2010 it will three years since my Father passed
away in his sleep laying next to my Mum.

Time may be a healer, but time goes to quickly.

Operation Day!

So, today was supposed to be the day I have my next operation. It would of all gone to plan had i not come down with a sickness bug yesterday! It is very frustrating when your whole existence is on hold to try and get some consistent health back - when the day arrives for me to get a step closer to that goal it is taken away from me!

The one thing that is getting to me more than anything is the amount of time off work I am having - things change on a daily basis at work and the longer i am not there the more change happens without my involvement. I love my job, the team and the buzz of technology - but i am starting to think that i am on to a loosing horse with this one. For me to competently do this job i need a 'consistent disability'. That may sound a little odd, but for me to be able to know how i am going to feel and the amount of pain i will need to deal with on a day to day basis would be a real positive for me. I could then plan my day with a great deal more productivity....

I was hoping at the beginning of this year that 2010 would be our year, I may have to review that decision and hope for 2011!

Ok, I absolutely agree with the theory that smoking around your kids damages them. However, to bring in a law that try's to make smoking illegal in cars is insane! I personaly agree that if it were enforcable smoking within cars should be banned. In reality however it is not!
How long has the business ban been in place stopping smoking in company vehicles? It does not work, just look around whilst driving and you will see the evidence of this. 

Smoking around your children is cruel and inconsiderate at the least- but if as a parent you can not make the decision to protect your child from harm what hope does the goverment have?

Barking mad!

Why is it not obvious to dog owners when their animal is barking it's
head off for hours on end in their back garden that it may be causing
a nuisance to the neighbours?

Road rage

So my Friday was not going too well anyway. What with my leg and the
pain killers it was a bit of a was out!

I pulled up at the clock tower which is a local landmark in the centre
of Rugby. I stopped the car in a legal place for a disabled person to
stop, the same as I have done numerous times before. This time was
going to be slightly different.

Within a couple of minutes of stopping a yellow DHL van pulled up in
front of me and the driver started to beckon me with hand signals from
inside the cab. I eventually realised that he was telling me to move
my car backwards so that he could park where I was stopped. I tried to
explain (through windscreens) that I can only park on double yellows
and not on a taxi rank so therefore I could not move.

He got incredibly angry and started swaying his arms about and
shoulting from inside his cab, gladly I could not hear him!

Eventually he wheelspan his van out and pulled up alongside my car and
shouted "Your a F*****g W*****r! Which half of Rugby town centre also
heard! He then pulled in behind me in the spot he had told me to move
to. Unloaded his van, knocked on my window and said "if I get a
F*****g ticket by parking there I will hold you F*****g responsible
and do your F*****g head in when I get back!

Is this normal DHL customer relations?

Listen to the audioboo here.

Listen!

Near miss!

Whilst on a recent trip put with DS & DW (Darling Son & Darling Wife)
we came across this cutey making a lot of noise. Naturally I
approached as the man of the pack to see of I could offer any
assistance or maybe some of the sticky mush of animal food that I just
purchased for 25p!

Now as someone who knows better than to read signs I approached the
beautiful bird and as I stood waiting for the sticky mush to slide out
of the bag onto my waiting hand the bloody bird decided to take a
fancy to my lower leg and try eating my jeans!

Now by this time my DS & DW were in fits of laughter at my expense!

Family days out- you gotta love em eh?

iPhone upload

Testing PicPosterous app on iPhone

Tesco Clubcard for the Iphone

So, Tesco have joined the App revolution and launched the Tesco Clubcard iPhone App!...
First impressions, it does exactly what it says on the box!
I must admit, I have not used it as yet as I always end up using their fast pay self service till which this app has no support for (at present) so maybe a little bit useless for me. But overall I can see this being a useful tool for a lot of people.
