Just What Is It All About?

After yesterday’s lack of endeavour, I had really made an effort with today’s post. I was going to publish it this morning, but when I checked my emails I discovered that I’d signed up for a blogging course, run by WordPress, called Blogging 101. Part of the course is a daily assignment. I’ve shelved today’s…

Continuity Error

If I manage to write something today it will be my 15th post in 15 days, which isn’t bad going. On the other hand, I’m not certain I’m going to get chance to get to a computer today, or indeed have time to write anything. It’s quite a dilemma – I expect there’ll be a…

Baking Bad

As I’ve stated previously, I enjoy a coffee on my way into to work of a morning. I’ve also shared the fact that I enjoy breakfast. Sometimes I combine these two pleasures and purchase both at the same outlet. I’m quite astute like that. One of these outlets has a proprietor who reminds me quite…

Guitar Hero

My imitation Fender Stratocaster only has five strings. The ‘high’ E snapped about five years ago and I haven’t bothered to replace it. It’s also out of tune. I’ve had it since I was fifteen, which is now a scarily long time ago. Back when I was in secondary school I was briefly in a band.…

Livid Leprechaun

Reading’s local rugby team is called London Irish. It’s a strange name for a team that is evidently not based in London, and has limited links to Ireland. Historically it had both of those things going for it, originally being set up as a club for Irish people who were living in London.  The name…

Glorious Gluttony

I went to the pub last night. I didn’t drink that much, but I ended up being a tiny bit drunk. Certainly I was drunk enough that when I went to the chip shop on the way home I bought a significantly larger amount of food than I would have had I not been imbibing…

Un-SUIT-able

I only have one suit. It’s a really nice suit though. I got married in it, so I really pushed the boat out and had it tailor-made. It is literally the most expensive thing I own apart from my house. Since getting married in it I have worn it to numerous weddings, funerals, christenings and…

Mug Mugging

This is no ordinary ceramic mug; this is a mug that I purchased from the Manchester Museum gift shop in November 2006. “Big Deal!” I hear you cry. Anyone could buy a mug from the Manchester Museum gift shop. Well anyone who pays a visit to the Manchester Museum could anyway. True enough and certainly…

The All-Important First Post

I’ve started numerous blogs over the years. They always start well. I usually post regular updates for a few days, sometimes even two or three daily. Then I miss a day, then a few days. This becomes a few weeks and then, really, the blog is dead; my passion runs out. Eventually when the blogging…
