My god the sun is shining after 3 days of pi....oh sorry, I mean persistant rain.
I have hung my washing out and now will do the garden. Which I may add, I do enjoy.

That's great but now Geoff is in bed with......man flu!!!

I'm going to buy a big bar of chocolate...and eat the bloody lot!!!

What a better way to end the Bank holiday!!

Sunday, May 27, 2007

I don't think I have ever felt so down for a long time.
I am sat here watching the rain falling, and listening to it spitting at my windows.

It's a bank holiday and as always the weather is awful.

It's not that we had anything in particular planned but when it's dark and raining it's depressing isn't it?

Sorry to be a moaner.

I'll stop now!
I didn't have to think to hard to work out which 5 people I would like to meet in heaven.
But there was one person I thought of straight away.... .........God.
The reason for this is not because I am particulary religious because to be honest, I'm not.
But if he is there then at least I know he does actually exist.

This, of course, goes back to my other blogs.

Which do you believe, God or Science?

Sunday, May 20, 2007

I have just read Dickiebo's blog and here is my 5 people I would like to meet in heaven.
They are not in any particular order.
Apart from the first one.

1 God
2 Harold Wilson
3 Marc Bolan
4 Princess Diana
5 Martin Luther King

The Perfect Murder: Panorama.

When ever you talk about the perfect murder everyone thinks immediately of "Jack the Ripper."
In 1888 he murdered 5 women, he has never been caught.

This makes you wonder how many more have been murdered and the murderer never caught.
Well, in fact since pre world war 2 there has been 150 unsolved murders.

In Suffolk one man has even tried to copy "Jack the Ripper." He has killed 5 women and he has never been caught.

Here is a list of the unsolved murders since 2000.
2001 Unknown boy River Thames "Torso in the Thames"

2002 Amanda Dowler, Walton-on-Thames

She was 13 years old
when she was abducted.
A friend saw her walk
along Station Avenue
towards her home.
This was the last
confirmed sighting of

2003 Shafilea Ahmed, Warrington Cheshire,

She had been missing for a week before anyone
had reported her missing.In Feb 04 she was found in the river Kent.

2004 Jenny Abbot Eastbourne .

She was 15 years old and was last seen
getting in a car.

2004 Alistair Wilson, Nairn, Inverness

He was shot dead at
home, after his wife
opened the door to his
killers. There appears
to be no motive.

2006 Jesse James, Moss side, Manchester.

He was shot. It appears to be mistaken identity
There are no witnesses.

2006 Tania Nicol, Ipswich, Suffolk "Ipswich Ripper"
Gemma Adams
Anneli Alderton
Paula Clennell
Annette Nicholls

It's hard to believe, with all the fingerprints and D.N.A. we have now, that there are still unsolved murders.

But what I find extradinary is that there are no witnesses to any of these murders.

I have just been through the blogs and,as usual, I always read Emmas.
Well, she has a test for us.

What Tarot card are you?

Now,to be honest, I'm not a fan of tarot cards. I'm not into anything spiritual or any of those things because it scares me.

However I had a go and filled out the quiz.
This is what they came up with:


Beauty, happiness,pleasure,success,luxury,dissipation

The Empress is associated with venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure,luxury and delight.(??) You may be good at home decorating , art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance,of art or business.
While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the high.
Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so,the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

So, I may be good at decorating.......have you just read my other blogs about that?
I could not decorate to save my life!!
As for all the beauty, pleasure, luxury etc.......I wish!!
As for the anger.....well, you know what I'm like.

It's nice to read but what do you believe?

Anyway, I'll let you decide.

Phew, what a busy couple of weeks we've had.

The first was the election and you know the result of that.Then we had our living room decorated. Geoff can no longer do any decorating as he is not physically able, and it's no good asking me. I just cannot paint, and as for putting up wall paper, forget it. I have never done it in my life, and I will probably put it on upside down, sideways,or just back to front. I really should learn but then again, perhaps not!
So, geoff asked a friend of ours if he could paint our living room, and he agreed. Well, he's done a lovely job. The living room is now sky blue. It really cheers you up when you decorate, doesn't it? Well, I should say when someone else decorates!
We emptied the living room and my god, we were surprised at the rubbish we have kept all these years! Now we have decided, when we put everything back that we would throw out all the things we don't really want or need. Funny how you collect something "just in case we might need it someday" and of course, you never do, do you?

Anyway,we thought we would go away for the weekend to get out of his way.We decided to go to Western-super-mare on saturday and to Oxford (My home town)to see the family,on sunday.So off to Western we went. We booked into a hotel when we got there. It was on the sea front so the view was lovely. However, we still didn't see the sea.
We used to go there a lot when we had Becky our beautiful dog, but since loosing her, 4 years ago, we stopped going. You know what it's like.
So, saturday morning we drove down to Western and we did our usual, stopped for breakfast, at the Little Chef.We had a full english breakfast and it was lovely. I never eat breakfast so it was a treat for me.
Got to Western at midday and went for a walk on the beach, now the sea was just going out, in fact we were surprised we could see it!
Then we went for a walk in the town and saw a chinese restaurant that did a lunch special. Well, mention chinese to us and that's it. So in we went.. we had a lovely three course meal.
We were so full we had to go back to the beach to walk that off!
The day went and we went back to the hotel for a rest, and after a quick little nap we got ready to go out for the evening. Now, we had only taken a few things with us because we were only staying one night.
So I changed into my fav top (with the same pair of jeans I had worn all day!) and off we went.
We drove into the town, of course being saturday night it was packed, we walked around wandering what to do when we saw it. An Indian restaurant! Well mention a curry to us and that's it! So in we went.
We had a lovely meal and a nice bottle of wine.
Coming out of the restaurant, it was pouring with rain so we couldn't walk that one off.I thought I was going to burst.
We drove back to the hotel and just flopped on to the bed. We couldn't move!!
Sunday we got up and dressed and went down for breakfast. It was then we realised just how much we had eaten. I couldn't believe it.Normally I only eat once a day. Just the main meal at night. If we do go out for a meal we don't even have a starter.
Driving to Oxford we stopped for a coffee (Now that's what I do all day, just drink coffee) and believe it or not we had a snack.
We drove back and when we walked into the living room we were delighted with the decorating, the room looks so nice and fresh now.
Usually on Sundays we have a roast but, not wanting to cook at that time, we had a chinese takeaway!

Now, it's time to put everything back into the living room. It's all upstairs in the spare bedroom at the moment. I will be glad to get up and do some excercise and get back to normal!

Im glad we had it done but thank god it doesn't happen that often, I could not stand eating that much again!

Geoff said we would have to go on a diet. I readily agreed.

It must have been the sea air.

Even though we did not see much sea!!!

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while but we have been so busy with the local elections.

Here is the result of the Hagley ward:

Steven Colella: 1,160 (Con)
Christopher Scurrell: 997 (Con)
Annette Hulett: 214 (Lab)

We arrived at the Council House for the count at 11.00 p.m.
We left at 2.30 a.m.

Hagley was the last one of the night!

Although no-one was disappointed with the Hagley result because we know it is an Conservative area. Always has been, probably always will be.

However I loved canvassing and meeting so many nice people.

I loved it.

We had one really disappointing result, Geoff lost his seat, to the Conservatives.

However, never be put off, this happens in politics as you all know. You have your ups and downs.

We went out last night for an Indian meal and a booze up.
It was lovely and we had a great night.

I would willingly do it all again.
