You shut your mouth!

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way?
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

We have just returned from Doncaster, where Lindsey and I went to the Morrissey Gig at Doncaster Dome! Now I am not really a Smiths or Morrissey fan, I was listening to Marillion in the eighties, Lindseys the Morrissey fan!

All I can say it was Absolutely Fantastic, I cannot describe the buzz, I am feeling, I am on a high! I know they are some children that read this blog, so I will try and not write any expletives, but if you know me, you know the normal phrase that comes before Fantastic, I would normally use!

Doncaster Dome is a strange venue, picture a sports hall, or school gym! It is very small, but upfront and personal it was! After all these years Morrissey can still rock, his band was excellent as well, good sounds, good band, Fantastic. I think everybody coming away from that gig felt something very special, a strange eclectic mix of people, from all generations. I spoke to one young lad who was born in 1989, he did not remember The Smiths! They split before he was born!

God Bless you Morrissey, it was a pleasure, I am looking forward to the next time!

Let me introduce you to our new car…

Saturday, January 26th, 2008

This is the first time I’ve seen the car in the daylight, I collected the car on Monday 21st January, and it was raining and getting dark, by the time, I arrived home it was dark. We’ve been driving and returning home from work, all week in the dark. So this is the first time, I’ve had a good look at the car and take her photo! On-board computer states we’ve averaged 36.9mpg, and we’ve only done 127 miles!

Bay Window finally dressed!

Saturday, January 12th, 2008

We’ve finally dressed the front lounge bay window. Well to be exact a very nice man called John Hall from John Hall designs visited us last year in November/December, and we’ve had roman blinds made and fitted today by him. I can highly recommend John, Lindsey had originally discounted roman blinds, and wanted curtains fitting! I look forward to inviting John back again to complete the other rooms in our house.

Give John a call, and tell him I sent you! Thanks John for your help and excellent work!
