I'm back.

Well that's it. Goodbye Chichester, Hello Ramsgate.
I got back to Ramsgate yesterday (Monday) after squeezing all my belongings into the car and saying goodbye to my home of the past 5 years.
I thought I'd just put on this short blog to let people from Chi know that I got back. That's all for now, I've just got to find a place to put all my crap I brought back with me.

the lovely Ramsgate Marina
(no I can't put it there.)

I can't believe it.

The man in the black below is an idiot. That's my statement of the day. I could use fouler language but my swearbank has been used up after the ridiculous decision last night not to allow Sol's goal in the 90th minute.......gutted.

But the boys did us pround, especially Ashley (he was brilliant up the lefthand side making up for our lack of a left-winger, also he defended like a god, putting in some excellent tackles and snuffing out the threat of Christiano Ronaldo), Sol (He was a rock at the heart of the defence, getting his head on every ball and inspiring the whole team), Frank (A good all round footaller whose goals from the midfield were priceless ,with a return of 3 goals in 4 games), and the boy Wayne (he was cool as a cucumber, didn't get sent off, and scored some corkers). They were solid throughout the tournament and showed that it's not all about Beckham (who incidently played shite.)

Where Did I Go Wrong?

So anyway, it was our end of year staff leaving do/piss-up. I had a really good time but note the map below and my not so direct route home. I got lost, more lost, got to a roundabout which shouldn't have been there, and finally tried to retrace my steps, whereupon I ended up outside the police station, further back than from where I started, and finally i decided to bite the bullet and get a taxi back, by which time it was around 1:30am. I was very, very, drunk.

Big Bear Diaries

So anyway last night I was a little bored and had been looking through some photos of when I was in Canada last summer. I went through a mad tourist stage of getting my photo taken with the huge abundance of large stuffed toy bears, and so got these photos together and made a new blog which you can see at The Big Bear Diaries

Last Week in Chichester

Well that's it...the end of an era. I will be shortly leaving Chichester, my abode for the past 5 years, and moving back to kent, my abode for the previous 18 years of my life. Goodbye to lots of old friends in Chi, hello to lots of even older friends in Ramsgate.

It's warmish-cold, with sunny spells in between

Take that Mother Nature!!! Kapow....Blammo...ummm...I run out of batmanesque expletives but I think you get the gist. I had a hayfever free sleep last night, the clouds are out, and I'll get to watch the England-Switzerland game at the pub without dying from heatstroke.

N.B. As soon as I get a break in summer and I want to go to the beach then it would be appreciated if it was very hot. thankyou

It's Hot Hot Hot

I was wrong, I admit it, I woke up and thought 'thank god'. After the previous days pollen count of a gazillion nubits per cubit (Hayfever Assissted Suicide)I was glad to see a day with clouds when all the pollen decided it was too cold to come out.

Well all that changed in the afternoon and Mother Nature got her revenge......bitch!

It's a bit warm, warm, warm!

My god it's quite warm. Too warm to blog.....

Something Useful on the Net Shocker!!!

Wow!! What can I say? I've found a place on the Web that has actually prooved useful to me. It's called www.pslover.com and has shitloads of Photoshop tutorials on it. I spent a while going through them and although I'm pretty good at photoshop I've also learnt a few new things too. I'd recommend anyone who's got photoshop to have a look and get some pretty cool effects out of your PC.

It's been a long time coming......

Phew, how long's it been since the last post?? Too long I think.
England won the London Rugby 7's tournament, and I had the privelidge (?) of watching around 16 teams battle it out at twickenham, with England finishing the top of the pile by beating New Zealand in the final.
Well after supporting England Footy at the pub on saturday, and contributing to the landlords retirement fund, I feel I've now contributed to English Rugby....and the retailers who ply their trade in the vicinity of Twickenham! What a wallet-thinning day!
After getting my official tournament ticket (£20), my rail ticket (£22), my official programme (£3), my authentic south african boerewors (a traditional south african farmhouse sausage (£4.50), my icecream (£1.60), and my official England Rugby Shirt (£40), I seem to have spent a fair bit!!!!!
Now back to work to earn some more money and repeat the cycle another weekend.
