Things Are Going My Way

Posted on Updated on

OK….  So The Daily Post have offered my three wishes, and the cheeky muse’s that they are want to know what they are and why



My first would have to be a unlimited amount of beer.  Why? you ask, well 1. Because I love it, 2. Because I can, and 3. I could make a fortune selling it, so that way I don’t have to wish to be rich.

My second wish would be, free sky TV, although I’ll have lots of money from selling the beer I still hate the fact I have to pay so much just to watch only a couple of channels I can’t get on Freeview.

And finally, my third wish, well it has to be to wish for another 3 wishes, why? because you can never have enough wishes.

Short, sweet, and to the point.



Karma Is Real Challenge

Posted on Updated on

ImageBreaking new……

Scientists have just proven karma is real…..

Recent studies took 138 test subjects and placed them into a controlled environment.  Quarter of them were forced to resort to violence, and the outcome was catastrophic.  All of them came to a untimely death in some sort of horrific way…..

Then another quarter of the test subjects were all paid handsomely to do good things, which went well for the first few days, until, eventually they got greedy and wanted more money.  Then one by one the all came down with a new strand of the plaque.

The final half of the participants were all given simple tools and equipment and placed on a remote island.  They learned to share there food, take on different jobs to erect the village and started a wonderful paradise.  That is, until rats brought over the newly created plaque and infected all of the inhabitants.

The conclusion came that, karma is real.  But it doesn’t matter how you choose to live your life eventually you are going to come to your end, some way or another.

The moral…..  Be nice (or not), to everyone, because you have no idea when our humanity will take over and ruin us all.

The Neighbour Challenge

Aside Posted on Updated on

Hey guys…..

Here comes another daily prompt challenge.  Today’s challenge is Who are your neighbors? Are we friends with them, avoid them or just a casual wave hi.Image

I moved into my house about 2 years ago, and quickly got to know a few people on my street, except my direct neighbours, who when I first moved in, were neighbours from hell.  screaming kids all day and night, stupidly loud music and constant arguments, but they moved out a couple of months after I moved in, just to be replaced by exactly the same sort of people.  Finally they moved out as well and I am now blessed with nice, quiet neighbours, who moved in a couple of months ago.  I still haven’t met them yet, only seen them through my window as they come and go throughout the day.

Unfortunately I still have problems with the neighbours on the other side of me who seem to fight constantly throughout the day and night, it was only two nights ago I was trying to get to sleep when at about midnight there children started singing as load as they could, shortly followed by there parents joining in.

But after all this it could be allot worse.

The Clean Up Challenge

Posted on Updated on

Hey all…..

So today’s challenge is to talk about what household task we dislike the most.  Is it the task itself that we dislike or is there something more……Image

For me, I think the worst household chore is, well, all of them.  I detest the fact that I have to come home from a long day of work just to do more work at home, I pay allot of money to own my own house, pay the bills, and yet I still have to do my own house cleaning, well most of the time anyway, luckily I’m blessed with a lovely mum who will occasionally pop round and have a quick run round with the hoover and clean the dishes.

But still is it to much to ask for the magical pixies, (that we all know exist), to pop around at least once a week and do a little bit of tidying up.

Anyway, as much as I wish I could guarantee those pixies will come round, at this time of night it look unlikely, so I’m off to do some dishes.


Happy Endings Challenge

Posted on Updated on

Today’s challenge is to talk about trying to quit something, did we go cold turkey, a gradual slow down, or did it stick at all.

Me personally I have a few vices I should kick.  The first is smoking, I’ve managed to quit before but only for a few months, then one night out, someone offers me a smoke and I’m back smoking again in no time.Image

The next one is drinking.  Now I have always been a big drinker, I started drinking when I had just started high school, just a couple of bottles here and there that I would sneak out, then When I was old enough I started frequenting the pubs almost every night.  It never really helped working in the drinks industry from when I left school, and I still work in the industry, but now in the distribution sector instead of the bar trade.

Neither of these things are not great for me, already being a badly controlled diabetic,

Now I still smoke (although not as much) and I am still drinking, but in moderation know maybe once, twice a week.  I am a firm believer in the fact that unless you are 100% ready to quit, there is no point trying, there are to many temptations to lead you back, you have to really be in the mind set to do it.

Besides No one likes a quitter.


Accomplish Challenge

Aside Posted on Updated on

OK today’s daily prompt challenge is to write about what we wanted to accomplish last week, and whether we did or not and what held us back.

So the question is what did I want to accomplish last week.  Well, there was

  • getting to work on time (check)
  • Getting my blood sugars to a normal level (if my doctors are watching check, if not good they wont know I’m lying)
  • Tidying the house (well yes, sort of, almost, no not really)

In all honestly the only real target I managed to hit was getting to the end of the week and having the joy of doing it all over again.

Some people are very good at setting their week out, knowing which bus route to take to miss the traffic, setting out their weekly meal plan.  But I’m not one of those people.  I like to get up, look out of the window and go from there.  My goals are forever changing from minute to minute which for me is great, most of the time.  The annoying times this doesn’t work is when there is one main task that comes to mind which automatically overrides all other tasks, and most of the time I end up not getting those little tasks, the sort that are so little, but so important, that everything eventually comes to a halt because of those silly little things you forgot.

  • Getting to work
  • Getting my blood sugars to normal level
  • Tidying the house

These things, (Well maybe not these particularly) but these are the things we need to think about all the time and never forget to do, because when we stop, it all stops.

OK, so today’s challenge is to write a post in which the number 26 plays a role, but where to start.


  • My age last year? (Can’t remember that far back)
  • The date today
  • The name of this post (Think that says it all)
  • The number of the latest developer release of Firefox

Basically I have no idea, so I used my best tool Google, and this is the first 3 searches

So, nothing much of interest there either, then I thought lets go back to the 26th of Jan (today) and re-cap on what has been going on.

After waking up feeling a bit groggy from 2 nights out on the trot I got treated to a lovely, greasy fry-up.  Once that had settled down and I approached some form of normality I headed off to do a couple of hours behind the bar at my local.  The day went reasonably slow as there were very few customers and my head was still a little bit fuzzy.  Finally the time came to shut up shop and I went over to my parents for a nice roast lamb dinner.

Sorry for this dull one but Hopefully Tuesday’s Blog Should be better.

Until next time
