I haven't blogged for a while, have I?
Yes, I'm sure you all did a big sigh of relief, but I'm back now.

The reason is because I have been so busy what with christmas coming up and every weekend I've actually been out and about.
No-where in particular just visiting family.

Anyway, today we went to a dog sanctuary, and picked up a cat.
Yes thats right.
Now I'm not particulary a cat person, as I much prefer dogs. But I admit that this one is a beautiful cat, it's a tortoise shell colour with white patches.
Her name is "Snowdrop."
Lovely name isn't it?
Since losing our beloved Becky five years ago, we just haven't been able to see a dog that will fit in with our life. We keep looking for becky again. That is so wrong for any new dog we would have had. So now we have a cat!!

Just a line about Laura, as I said thankyou for you're lovely comments, it made me feel so much better.

Laura has had two courses of chemotherapy, the second one today actually. She has to have 6 courses (one every 3 weeks) and then she will have her breast removed probably in January.
She is looking a little haggard and stressed but not as bad as we all thought she would.
I expect she is still in shock as it happened so quickly.

She has just started to loose her hair which surprised us all, we didn't think it would happen that quickly.
She has bought herself two wigs (very expensive but worth it) as the N.H.S.wigs are not that good. I have seen other women wear those when they had chemotherapy for their cancer, and I must admit they don't always match your colour anyway.
Still, they do help but you still have to pay a little towards them.

She has a good atitiude about it, she keeps saying she must fight this and she is reading books from other women who have had it. Famous actresses etc.

Will update you as it goes.

Thanks again.

I must admit these are not my jokes. I have seen them on another blog site and thought you might enjoy them.

Recent research shows there are 7 kinds of sex.

The 1st kind of sex is called: Smurf sex
This kind of sex happens when you first meet someone and you have sex until you are blue in the face.

The 2nd kind of sex is called: Kitchen sex
This is when you have been with your partner for a short time and you are so horny you will have sex anywhere, even in the kitchen.

The 3rd kind of sex is called: Bedroom sex
This is when you have been with your partner for a long time. Your sex has gotton routine and you usually have sex in your bedroom.

The 4th kind of sex is called: Hallway sex
This is when you have been with your partner for too long. When you pass your partner in the hallway you both say "Screw you."

The 5th kind of sex is called: Religious sex
This is when you get Nun in the morning, Nun in the afternoon, Nun at night.

The 6th kind of sex is called: Courtroom sex
This is when you can't stand your wife anymore. She takes you to court and
screws you in front of everyone.

The 7th kind of sex is called: Social security sex
This is when you get a little each month but not enough to live on.


A drunk stumbles along a baptismal service on a sunday afternoon down by the river. He goes down into the water and stands next to the preacher.

The minister turns round and notices the old drunk and says:
"Are you ready to find Jesus?"

The drunk looks back and says:
"Yes preacher I sure am."

The minister then dunks the fellow under the water and pulls him back up.
"Have you found Jesus yet?" The minister asks.

"No, I haven't." Said the drunk

The preacher the dunks him under for a bit longer, brings him up and asks:
Now, brother, have you found Jesus?"

"No, no I haven't." Said the old drunk.

The preacher, in disgust holds the man down under for at least 30 seconds and then pulls him back up. He says in a harsh voice:
My good man, have you found Jesus yet?"

The old drunk wipes his eyes and asks the preacher:
"Are you sure this is the place where he fell in?"

Jean Charles de Menezes

Jean Charles de Menezes was shot dead because detectives mistook him for failed July 21st suicide bomber Hussain Osman, who had tried to blow up a London tube train the previous day.

A surveillance team were watching a block of flats in London because they thought that Hussain Osman was there.

There was also confusion in the control room and the firearm officers did not know what the stragety was, should anyone leave the building they were watching.

Jean Charles de menezes also lived in the block and flats and while the spotter was absent de Menezes had left the building.

This is where the confusion starts.

They followed de Menezes to the railway station, thinking he was Osman, and they asked repeatedly if they could arrest him, but they were told to hold back and wait for the firearms team to handle the arrest.
This they did.

There are reports that when the firearms officers turned up they asked him to stop, he didn't. This is when they thought they had the right man.
Why didn't he stop?

Because he is an illegal immigrant.

Well, we all know what happened next.

They shot him.

Yes, it was a mistake, he was not the man they were looking for.

You see, Jean Charles de Menezes is not the innocent man that the media is trying to make out.
He is an illegal immigrant. He should have returned home 2 months ago.
I'm not saying that he deserves to be shot, of course not, but lets face it, if he had gone home, he would not have been in the area at that time.

The reason I think no-one should resign over this is because once a mistake like this has been made, they sure as hell won't make the same mistake again.

How many times have you made a mistake whether it is at work or in your personal life and you thought to yourself:
"I'll never do that again."
I know I have.
Well, Sir Ian Blair and Cressida Dicks will make sure that that will never happen again.

That is why I am against anyone resigning.
