Seagulls and Sirens

Tomorrow I will be getting up very early to enjoy the sounds of my glorious city...

I will be weight training at 7am followed by a breakfast en route to Lochnagar where I will conquer my first Munro (or Marilyn according to Wikipedia!)

At the moment though, all I can think about is what to pack for lunch and how much I'm going to enjoy the Fish & Chips (or Steak Pie, I haven't quite decided) and pint of Guinness on the way home!

Tonight is going to be BUSY with training and getting organised for mountain climbing!

Wish me luck!

My Neil

I do not have a boyfriend. I have a Neil. He is awesome.

The End.

p.s - there was more mouse hoovering last night!

Refrigerated Mice

Hello internet.

I'm not feeling very inspired today.

Last night we realised Romi (my cat) had brought home a mouse the night before and it had been setting up home behind the fridge. It was only when Neil pointed out that Romi was very intrigued by said fridge that we came across the tiny furry thing that had set up home inside the motor of it! Needless to say, it had to be removed. It was sucked out by the hoover (not my idea!) - I am still horrified but you will be pleased to know that removing mice from fridges with a hoover works a treat and the mouse was unscathed, albeit a bit dizzy from whizzing round the bagless vacuum! It scuttled to the nearest bush and then Romi stalked the bush for the rest of the night.

I just had more potato salad for lunch. It was awesome. I added some runner beans today for a bit of crunch. This is not supposed to be a food diary. I will try to refrain from telling you what I am eating...but I do REALLY like food.

Tonight, I am hoping to do some JKD (Jeet Kune Do) and with a bit of luck it will remove the apathy I am feeling for the day as a whole and give me the kick up the bum I need.

To let you understand, I have just completed 6 years of 'self-study' in order to qualify to do a job I'm not sure I want to do for the rest of my life. (That's a whole other, very boring and whiney post in itself) I have gone from stressed to super stressed to 'oh my god I will kill the next f***ing person that looks at me' to NOTHING. Yes, nothing. I now have all this free time and I'm too exhausted to use it productively. It's ridiculous. This time last year I was working 9 - 5, studying in the evenings and training 6 days out of 7. I have no idea how I fitted it all in!

That was a bit of a rant. Oops.

Anyhoo, I think I'm all out of things to say. I'm going to have some carrot and orange soup and think about doing something productive.

Have a good day y'all!

Potato Salad (...and Frank Bruno)

I freaking love the stuff. Actually, I only like my version because it is super tasty and creamy. Today's post will therefore be my (Mum's) recipe:

New potatos (500g or so)

Boiled eggs (2 per 500g potato, although I kind of do it by eye as a rough proportion of the potatos - I don't like following orders)

Spring Onions/Chives (depends how oniony you like it) lets say 4 spring onions or bundle of chives

Mayo (2 huge spoons per amount of eggs or as much as you like)

Salt and Pepper (for seasoning purposes)


Eat it and have a hearty chuckle...d'ya know wot I mean 'Arry?

p.s. Is it potatos or potatoes? I can never decide and now that I've analysed it for so long neither or them look right!

Here Goes...Something

This is the one I thought I lost. Turns out blogger is super efficient an saved it as a draft! Woohoo!

(Now that I've built it up you will be sorely disappointed)

I set up this blog in 2009. I've not done very well so far!

However, I am going to make an attempt to post something everyday in a bid to 'release my creativity' (yes, that does sound pretentious). It might be utter crap but it will be something.

Today, I am posting this. Will this do? Is it enough? Do I have to provide some kind of smart/interesting/profound nugget of wisdom for the internet?

I think that's me done for the day.

Better start thinking about what to do tomorrow....

p.s - as part of today's post I will also be changing my design, it may change a lot in the future - I discovered the other day that I can't commit to a favourite colour. At the moment it is orange.

Where is Viktor?

So, posting something everyday didn't get off to a very good start.

I have an excuse/explanation (take your pick). It was a long weekend for Easter and we had an extra day off work. I don't have access to t'internet chez moi. Ah, but I hear you mutter, this is still the weekend - I have hijacked my boyfriend's netbook (Hi Neil! x )

Anyway, it has been a mostly uneventful yet fulfilling past few days and I am now bracing myself for Monday morning. Oh how I wish I could spend every day pottering. I like to potter. I have also recently discovered I like to crochet. Does this make me old and boring? Do I care? I decided in a bid to be thrifty and creative I would crochet a baby blanket for my friend who is expecting a 'delivery' in June. I just hope she doesn't drop early as I'm not getting on very fast!

I listened to Jazz FM all day today. I loved it. That is all.

I think that is it for today.

Until next time...

So...I already wrote an initial post approx 30 seconds ago. I stupidly navigated away from the page and now it is gone!

It went something like this:

I set this up in 2009 and have been crap at posting anything.

I have decided that I am going to post something every day. It may well be utter crap but I am going to do it anyway.


Is this sufficient as a blog post? Or does the internet require me to share a nugget of wisdom everyday? Maybe just an amusing anecdote? ... I have neither of these at the moment so this will have to do.

The End.

p.s I decided the other day that I should have a favourite colour. It will be orange. This may change in the future.
