Christmas Tree + James

Back To Bude ... Just For A Few Days


As I told you, yesterday I decorated our tree - I love decorations, but hate doing the tree - however long I spend on it, it always looks "thrown together"!  strikske asked to see what it looked like - so

Next week I shall take some better pics of it ... and the actual special ornaments on there.

This morning, as I was getting to leave Mum and Dad's I saw Jiffy in his bed - and wondered if I had shared it with you all.  So ...

... as you can see, the radiator is there ... and is on!

Well I made it back to Bude OK - as you can see, the roads were clear - as this was the view I had for the first 40 miles of my trip.  In England the speed limit on these roads is 70 (which means most paople do 80!) ... but today most (and again, sadly I have to say most) did between 50 and 60 ... yes the roads were dry and clear, but still better safe than sorry.  The last 30 miles of the trip was along a major road, but with a 60 limit ... but freezing fog meant a slow trip!  Still it went OK.

Now I'm back - and my first job was to open my cards - so a huge thank you to edenskye   lupina78  and  strikske 

Right, I must get to the bank - and do some shopping.  Hope you are all safe, and well.

James - his name

One Very Proud Daddy

This is one of 6 videos in the same set done on last Saturday of Ghost of the Robot - these show 4 songs, with the middle 2 featuring Sullivan, while the last song is dedicated to James niece




Yay - the last but one song - my second favourite - Fall of Night

The Icon Meme - Again


Most of you know that I love icons ... I like to have ones that will fit in with what I'm writing about, whether making a post like this one, or making a comment.  This post is about LJ icons - so, as you see, I have an LJ icon to use.

Every so often there is "the" meme going round where you can ask for 5 icons to be picked ... and then you can explain why, etc.  So in this latest round enigmaticblues  chose -

So, if you want me to pick 5 icons, then just ask in a comment and I will.

Lessons I've Learnt ... Or Am Trying To Learn!!


I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: A rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. 

I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.

I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same as making a 'life.'

I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I've learned that you shouldn't go through life just being a doormat.   You need to throw something back.

I've learned that to decide something with an open heart, you usually make the right decision.

I've learned that when I have pain, I don't have to be one.

I've learned that you should reach out and touch someone.   People love a hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
