New Car!

After spending a lot of money on repairing my car recently, all the oil leaking out of the tank was the final straw, so I decided to give it up and get a new car. I picked it up on Thursday last week and I love it!! It’s got a smaller engine than my last car (1.3 instead of 1.4) but it is so much more powerful. It’s a diesel car rather than petrol (must remember when I go to the petrol station!), so the engine sounds (and behaves) a...

Steroids

I read a post on Tumblr this weekend which said that any baseball player that had admitted to taking steroids in the past should have any records removed from them, and shouldn’t be considered for admission into the baseball Hall of Fame. Now I don’t claim to know much about baseball, having only started following a team in 2004, and only watching it properly in 2008, but I don’t really think that is fair. If a player took...

Golden Acre Park

I was up at 7 this morning to drive Vicky to work, so I thought rather than go home and back to bed, I would go for a walk with my brother. We went to Golden Acre Park, as we used to go there all the time with my Gran and my Mum when we were younger. I wanted to take a lot of pictures, but Frank has the patience of a five year old so wouldn’t stand still for long enough. I did manage to get a few decent pictures (I think). I would have...

21st Birthday!

It was my birthday on Thursday, and it was ace. I was working, so I didn’t get to see my family until the evening, but I had a really good day. I went out for a quick drink with Mike at lunchtime, and when I got back there was a huge bunch of flowers and a card on my desk from everyone at work. The flowers are gorgeous, and a brilliant surprise. I had them on my passenger seat on the way home from work, and everytime I looked out my...

Cake

As it’s 9 days until my 21st birthday, I thought I’d post a couple of pics of the best birthday cakes I’ve had. My favourite one when I was younger was pink ballet shoes that my dad made, but recently, I’ve had two ace cakes. First was on my 16th birthday, and my best friend made it for me. Then there was the cake that my family made me for me 20th birthday last year. This is my all time favourite cake, and I still have...

I Love July!

I’ve always loved July. not just because it’s my birthday month, but because it was always the month that we broke up for the holidays, so it was always the start of summer. Not only is it my birthday, it’s my best friend’s birthday, my brother’s birthday and my Aunt’s birthday. So I woke up on the first of July and I knew it was going to be a good month. 6 days in and I already know I was right. Waddington...
