Contagious Christianity…

I’ve just come back from my annual jaunt to the EMW Aberystwyth conference and feeling slightly more refreshed than usual! The messages this year seemed particularly poignant, and coupled with a slightly different circumstances in my role at the conference, … Continue reading

Long time, no blog[2]…

It seems like a long time since I rambled about inane trivia. Midsummers Day 2009 has gone already, and the nights are starting to draw in. It’s been so long, that my mobile contract had expired and my trusty W910i … Continue reading

Bake me a cake

This week’s been a fairly good week! Monday’s football was interesting, a player or two were rather unfit, coupled with being the numerically smaller team meant we lost by a significant margin! Wednesday was spent down the snooker hall with … Continue reading

What you don’t have, you don’t miss

It would seem that, when I look around at my friends, everyone around me has a laptop. Their reasoning for having one varies from it being their main/only computer, to something which is more convenient than a desktop, through to … Continue reading

Feeling a little bit stiff!

It must be about a month since I last played football with my work colleagues. Admittedly, I played a couple of Saturdays ago in the HWEC vs HTC match (which we lost 3-6), but lack of regular exercise was significant … Continue reading

And breathe….

It seems like a long time since I last blogged about daily life! Things seem to have been very busy over the past few months, so I’m not sure if this post is a resurgence, or merely a blip. It … Continue reading

Long time, no blog…

To those who regularly read this blog, I do apologise for the lack of original ramblings of late! (I get the feeling I may be apologising to no one!) This is partly due to the madness of the Christmas season, … Continue reading

Slow, Slow. Quick, Quick…

A rather relaxing day to start with, mostly spent having breakfast, playing the piano, playing the violin, tidying the house, doing some food shopping and trying to fix the installation of Direct X on my Windows box. For some reason, … Continue reading

This one’s a little weird

Started learning the Sicilienne attributed to Paradis which is rather tricky – especially as it’s only classified as grade 5! The Mozart Bagatelle is beginning to become second nature now, all I need to do is get it up to … Continue reading

Tuppence a bag

Whilst it may have only cost tuppence to feed the birds, it usually costs £9.50 to enter St. Paul’s Cathedral! Compared to £5 to enter Salisbury Cathedral, this seemed a little steep. Fortunately, Southwest Trains have a 2 for 1 … Continue reading

I am Beowulf…

I finally got to see Beowulf, and I’m not really sure what to make of the whole package. It’s based on an old English epic poem, and so is suitably dark and foreboding. The techniques used in the production of … Continue reading

Tastes a bit like coleslaw…

This was one of those rare occasions I drove into central London during the day. The Picadilly line between Acton Town and Hammersmith was out, so I abandoned any thought of public transport and went for the convenient option. I … Continue reading

Cold and wet!

I must admit, being the slothful type, I wouldn’t have imagined myself playing football on a cold evening, with the rain beating down upon us. This evening just demonstrated how limited my imagination is! I think I must be mad! … Continue reading

Sweet

Went to the Tate Britain this afternoon. It’s been a while since I’ve been here, and I must confess, I prefer this to the Tate Modern. I just don’t get on with modern art, and even if I don’t understand … Continue reading

And it was supposed to rain

Today was slightly different! Took the day off work and went down to Salisbury. Saw Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral. What a cool day! 🙂
