I’m Back!

Posted by | Posted in Personal Shizzle | Posted on 10-08-2009

I returneth!

Yes, that’s right, I’m back from the USA! I’ll post a few blog posts about it in the coming days (Before I completely forget about everything that happened) but for now, just be happy that I’m back, safe and sound!

We’re Off To See The Wizard!

Posted by | Posted in Personal Shizzle | Posted on 10-07-2009

So, tomorrow is the big day. Am I ready? Who knows. Am I excited? You bet!

I’ve literally got no idea if or when I’ll be able to update the blog while I’m away, but I’ll be uploading the photos to the intarwebs, either as we go, or as soon as I get back.

Just wanted to say goodbye to all, and I’ll be posting photos and whatnot in a month. Wish me luck!

All Is Well

Posted by | Posted in Gym, Personal Shizzle | Posted on 27-03-2009

Well, my Dad has his operation yesterday and it went swimmingly. I got a half drugged-up phonecall from him yesterday as he was coming out of the hospital to let me know that everything went well, so that’s a relief.

A Trip To Hospital

Posted by | Posted in Personal Shizzle | Posted on 26-03-2009

“If I could choose between being with small group of people, and a bunch of people, I’d choose my cat.”

I heard yesterday that my Dad is to go into hospital this morning to undergo an angioplasty. That’s basically where they stick a balloon into an artery and inflate it to stop it from collapsing. Sounds drastic (and I guess it would be if it happened) but apparently it’s a fairly routine procedure and should go without a hitch. Here’s hoping!

What A Day

Posted by | Posted in Personal Shizzle | Posted on 06-03-2009

Had an awesome day yesterday!

I got to work, and straight away I checked on the status of my holiday booking – and it had been approved! So that’s four solid weeks I’ve got off from work in the summer, ready to go on this road trip across America!

And The Heavens Opened…

Posted by | Posted in Entertainment, Random | Posted on 06-02-2009

Well, after having a couple of days with no snow, it seems to have started up again. We were all told that we should expect some more snow by the weekend, but it seems to have started a day early. Unfortunately, I already made it into work, and I could possibly be stranded here if the buses aren’t running tonight.

Lightening Doesn’t Strike Twice

Posted by | Posted in Personal Shizzle | Posted on 26-01-2009

Or so they say. However I got a message today telling me that the mortgage advisor is off sick today and so our appointment is cancelled. Hmm, I’m beginning to think this is some kind of sign…

Ooo, outrage!

“Raincheck?”

About half an hour before I was supposed to meet with my mortgage advisor yesterday, he rang me up and cancelled the appointment. Grrr!

A Typical Day

Posted by | Posted in Personal Shizzle, Random, Society | Posted on 20-01-2009

I don’t think I like having a typical day, to be honest. I don’t think I’m a routine person at all. I can hack getting up at 7am and doing the typical 9-to-5 job just like everyone else, but I’d rather have something a little more unpredictable. Sure, when I’m all settled down in a few years, then yeah, I’ll want something a little more stable and predictable. But for now, I don’t like this “routine” lark.

Joining The First-Time Buyer’s Club

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff, Personal Shizzle | Posted on 15-01-2009

Well, I went and saw the mortgage advisor yesterday, and as expected he went through a few bits and pieces with me about the different types of mortgage available and whatnot. Afterwards, he set me some “homework” to do between now and the next time I see him.
