11-11-11 Wow or Meh?

Lest We Forget

Some sombre thoughts today, remembering all the brave soldiers who laid down their lives to defend their country and those who were killed as a result of following the orders they swore to obey.

As you may guess I don’t believe in ‘the war on terrorism’ I am one of those who think this was and still is all about politics, greed and saving face.

I am not going to argue about it, but this is what I believe and at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter why these brave men died, what matters is that they did – and they did so for Britain and therefore for us.

And I did hold a minute of silent reflection at 11:11.

It is quite interesting how this once in a century occurence has sparked so many different happenings and celebrations such thousands of couples getting married today, with 50 couples ‘eloping’ Gretna Green and over 5000 newly-weds in Shanghai alone.

Many births were induced so their children were born on this auspicious date, hence rocketing the number of birthdays for the future and there were of course the celebrants of their 11th birthday, with those born at 11 o’clock being extra special.

The pyramids at Giza were closed for fear of spiritual ceremonies being held and I am sure many other ‘religions’ have found reasons to make it a special event and of course Hollywood would not miss out on an opportunity like this, releasing the horror movie 11-11-11.

I could go on and on, but I won’t, lol, for me – apart for that one minute it was just a bog standard day with a couple of special clients to brighten it – you know who you are.

Latest Exercise Gadget for Men

I stumbled upon this little advert for the latest in male work-out technology:


As much as it fascinates me I have to ask if this piece of equipment is really necessary?
I would have thought given instructions for the correct and most effective positions most men would be able to replicate the exercises with whatever came to hand. ;oP

… and should any of you gents struggle, maybe I can lend a hand or two?

Happy (S)exercising

Happy Birthday to me!

funny pic, Dog sniffs for Birthday Cake

I sure hope so!

Is it just me or does this event, obviously the most important one of the year come around fasted every time? That must be the reason why the numbers may be stacking up, but I don’t feel any different from the year before – and thank you Mum and Dad I don’t look much different either.

If I’m completely honest though first thing in the morning the spring in my step is occasionally accompanied by a creak and it takes longer to recover from a night out on the town, but you have to expect a little wear on a high quality, vintage luxury object such as me.

So today is strictly for fun and by invitation only, but fear not I’ll not be too tired to play on Friday.

My Beautiful Bargain

A few months ago I was lucky and bought a potted orchid at a final (sell by date) reduction price of £2.50 from £10 and thought that even if the blossoms lasted a few days and the buds dropped unopened it would be a nice display on my table for a while.

To my delight it lasted weeks with all the buds coming into full bloom on both stalks.

Now the time before I had an orchid I killed it with kindness giving it a drink every time I watered my other plants and rotting its roots.
So this time I held back and now a few months on I have been rewarded with three boughs of gorgeous flowers and I just wanted to share that delight in these duller and darkening days.

candle lightOne thing I do like about the darker nights is getting out my candles again and filling my living room with magical dancing points of light and warmth and seductive scents – why, oh why did Airwick have to phase out their Vanilla & Festive Spice range…

Ah well, I’ll just have to experiment with other sensual aromas, I don’t need them to get me in the mood for loving, but it just adds that extra touch.

Wales robbed at Semi final!!!

broken heartedWals rugby union

I am heartbroken!

Wales losing is one thing, but have the chance of winning robbed by a completely wrong decision of a referee is another.

I can’t believe what happened, I am speechless.

The Welsh lads played so well!

They were so diplomatic and gracious in their interviews.

Sorry, I just don’t have the words…

Oh dear, oh dear! When will I grow up?

NEVER – me thinks.

Ok, what brought this lament on? Let me set the scene:

I have the habit of sending away for every freebie I see offered on the internet or magazines and collect vouchers like precious jewels. I nearly always forget to use the vouchers before they run out and end up throwing them in the bin (recycle) by the handful.

Freebie from TabascoAnyway, today I received a little cardboard envelope and upon opening it the leaflet told me it was a sample from Tabasco. I don’t remember sending away for it and for the last few months have preferred to use the more fiery piri-piri sauce; but hey, ‘gift horses and mouths and all that… So expecting a couple of sachets to fall into my hand, what pops out? – A miniature Tabasco bottle, exactly like the real one right down to the mini printed label!

Well, you cannot imagine my childish glee, my hand-clapping, foot-stomping excitement found me making the kind of noises normally reserved for cute babies (the non-crying kind), puppies and kittens and stroking the tiny bottle in my hand.

As a way of explaining myself I have always had a penchant for all things miniature and the closer they resemble their ‘normal’ sized cousins the better. I made myself the promise that one day I will get a large 1/12th scale doll house, which I will furnish and decorate it as the home of my dreams complete with conservatory and walled garden.

The 1/12th houseThis is one of my many retirement projects, so sadly a long time off, unless I win the lottery – but then I will have an entire room with a model village, no, a city, with a cathedral and shops, a park with a pond, a pub, of course a bawldy house and trains that run on time! Woohoo or woowoo (imitating train whistle).

Ok – back to the real world. Back to playing ‘Grown-ups’ – what a drag, but better than actually growing up, lol.

Oranges are not the only fruit…

Just as well!

One of the perks of touring is breakfast in the hotel, well depending on the hotel of course, this hotel has a fab hot and cold buffet, apart from the fried eggs – but that is to be expected from any buffet – a fried egg has to be prepared fresh or it is not worth having.

Seeing only one or two eggs left on the servery has a rather disturbing effect on me, I stare at any person approaching the buffet willing them to take the last egg(s), so that when a fresh tray comes out I can pounce on a freshly fried soft centred yellow and white morsel.

I need to get a life – I know!

Anyway back to oranges, whilst munching away on my final slice of toast I overheard the elderly couple on the table next to me remark to the waitress how juicy and sweet the oranges were and I thought: Mhmm, a succulent orange to finish off breakkie and cut through some of the grease of the fry-up. So my eyes wandered to the bowl displaying the fresh fruit, only to be confronted by the glaring absence of colourful citrus fruit.

Dropping my gaze disappointedly, glancing past the table of afore mentioned couple I happened to notice a shopping bag by the lady’s chair – and yes you guessed it there – through the slighty opaque bag I glimpsed at least four orange hued bulges.

The greedy sods had snaffled all the oranges leaving none for other guests, in particular me!

I weighed up the couple trying to gauge whether I could mug them on the way back to their room, but on second thoughts just settled for some grapes.

Ha! But for tomorrow I’ll set my alarm half an hour earlier, beat them to the restaurant and make them watch as I gorge myself on all the oranges, juice dripping down my chin!

Crack open the Champagne!

The excitement of a new website and a versatile blog

OMG! I am so excited I don’t know what to write. There are so many things I have held back on, as my old blog was so restrictive and the appearance was not very appealing. Coupled with the doctorchamp finally lifting my typing ban, imposed due to a problem with my hands and arms – the words are flowing from me faster than I can type and are in serious danger of making even less sense than they normally do.

So much has happened in the past weeks, where do I start?

Well I have finally provided my website creator, miradesign, with the information needed to complete the new site I have been mentioning for months and here it is all new, clean and shiny!

And to top it off there is a brand new 2009 photo gallery courtesy of my first ever professional photo shoot with the lovely Nicky Ryan, which I will post about separately.

Keep watching this spot and bookmark the link, cos as the Carpenters said:

We’ve only just begun♪♫♪
