Our December Spring Clean

We spent the day cleaning the house from top to bottom, took all the decorations down (it always looks so bare afterwards), and filled in all the cracks and touched up the paint work because we are convinced that now the Christmas is almost at an end, people will start to look at moving house and our house is ready to be looked at so we better start getting some viewers soon else I am going to get annoyed.

Our 3.30 AM Wake Up Call

My girls kicked off early this morning, No 2 is teething very badly so she is letting the rest of the family know how much it hurts, No 1 started because she was being woke up by No 2 so at 4:30 after settling down No 1, I was perched on one side of my bed, my wife on the other with No 2 in the middle stretched out and fast asleep leaving us awake to make sure we didn’t squash her :( .

Absent Friends

I think about my best friend who I lost over 10 years ago, he is sometimes in my dreams as if he had never died and when I ask him about it, he acts slightly strange and says it was all a mistake but I know this is my way of dealing with the grief even after so long, he would be 31 now.

Will Smith - The Last Man On Earth Vibe - I Liked It

I have just watched I Am Legend and I thought that this would be just another Will Smith blockbuster with lots of effects and no story but I was wrong and I highly recommend this film, it is one of the best post apocalyptic films I have seen, it has been produced very well.

Our First Family Christmas At Home

It was great, the whole day really centred around the girls opening their presents and making sure they had a fun day, my wife’s cooking was great and the whole day was stress free as we didn’t have to go or be anywhere but at home, the only thing was I had to take the tree down as I didn’t want to tell the girls off any more for pulling the decorations off.

My Only Christmas Eve Tradition

Well I finished work at lunch and now I am going down the pub for a few hours to play cards and see my friends and then I will come home and get all of the presents ready for the girls tomorrow which I am quite looking forward to.

The Fog On The Fens

We all went out for a drive today to look at a couple of houses we liked and we went down a track that ended up in a field and by the time we had turned around to go back up the track, the fog had came in over the countryside like out of one of those dodgy horror remakes and depicted below (internet picture as I didn't have my camera on me at the time but very true to life), very spooky.

My Lazy Day

Today was just a nothing day really, my wife let me have a lie in and then she wrapped the last of the Christmas Presents as well as make some fairy cakes, we watched TV, played with the girls and fed them (tea was a disaster as most of the pasta in sauce ended up every but their mouths lol), watched a few Christmassy food programs and that was about it but sometimes it’s good to have lazy day don’t you think?

The Santa Clause Connection

We went early because the big guy was in demand this time of year and I didn’t want to queue up for ages so there was a ride on the sleigh, lots of Christmassy lights and fake snow and then they met him and they were a little nervous but no crying, he said it was the 40th set of twins he had seen this year, everyone came away happy with a pic, a present and a baby xmas tree :)

Chill Out - Zero 7 - In The Waiting Line

Do you believe in what you see, motionless wheel, nothing is real, wasting my time, in the waiting line, do you believe in what you see.

And Relax

I have a glass of whiskey to hand, I feel chilled out, I am going to go to bed and have a restful sleep with no interruptions and I am going to wake up in the morning full of Christmas spirit ready to spend a day with my family with a cameo from Santa in the morning.

Santa Meet The Twins, Twins This Is Santa

I have a day off on Friday and we are taking the girls to see Santa and It will be the first time they have met in person (we have shown them the big guy on TV) so I am wondering, will they get on, will he freak them out so much that they will fear Christmas from that point on, we shall see.

Sick Of Advertisement On The Internet

Pop ups, pop unders, banners, shaking banners, adsense, flash advertisements, I’m the millionth person, win this, make money here, buy this, buy that, shoot the duck, dunk the guy, I am sick of it all but I think my brain is now ignoring most of it and just looking at the screen for content that I actually want to see which is why there will never be a single advertisement on this blog ever.

My Day In Brief

It was busy, there were mince pies, I came home, there was pizza as well as chocolates, I spent time with my family, I watched spooks then the unit, to blog then to bed (my routine week day).

It’s a lonely day

I’m on my own again at work again as the boss is working from home and my colleague has gone to the doctors, leaving me to be the face of the team so I get all the grief.

This Morning

I was early this morning, the boss came in with gifts for us all , I got a small bottle of Jack Daniels which is ok I suppose but I knew he wouldn’t be taking us all out for dinner this Christmas.

Vampire Stories & Rules

Over the years, I have seen quite a lot of vampire stories in movies and on TV and new ones seem to pop up every now and then with a new take on the vampire genre (I just saw a new one on TV called moon light about a vampire private detective, lol) so my random question is that if you were writing a vampire story, what would be your 5 rules that a vampire lives and dies by, at least one rule needs to be original.

The Number 13 – Unlucky for some

It is the 13th year that my wife and I have been together as a couple, that is a long time, as I was 19 when we first hooked up but I must say I have no regrets.

Christmas Movies

It is tradition in our house to give ourselves a little push in the right direction to get us into the Christmas spirit so that means listening to the Christmas music (I like fairy tale of Yew York) and watch festive Hollywood movies, so far it has been home alone 1 & 2 (3 & 4 are rubbish but I will end up watching them anyway) and the Santa Clause 1 & 2 (3 to come), doesn’t that show just how non religious and commercial my life is (I like it that way).

The Day After The Night Before

Well the Christmas party went well, I behaved myself throughout the night and came home with no scars which was good but I had no sleep because the girls kept me and my wife up most of the night although I still ended up with the mother of all hangovers this morning.

Life, The Universe & Everything

One of my work colleagues was going on today about how each individual in the room could be imagining the world around them and each person could be a piece of that imagination, I said to him that I don’t think I am imaging because If I were, I wouldn’t be imagining him :)

A Movie Franchise Destined To Go On Forever

I just watched Resident Evil Extinction, oh dear, the film started off quite clever but went down hill about half way through although there was the usual action it seemed to me that the whole film was geared towards the ending that left the move, once again in this series, open for yet another sequel so it sucked even though it had the chick in it from Heroes who plays Jessica / Nicky.

The Xmas Do

It's my work Christmas party tomorrow and my wife is driving so I have been looking at some websites on what not to do in this situation so I can vaguely remember them when I am drunk on the free booze talking to the bosses’ wife or someone I have to face on Monday morning.

Random Dreams When You Are Ill

It may be me but as I lay in bed, asleep, with my man flu, my dreams were very random with a great deal of hallucination in there as well because at one point, I was floating over the popular children’s TV's Lazy Town, putting for sale signs on all of the houses while random music from the show was going on in my head and I was just wandering if anyone else has very strange dreams when they are ill?

Pimp My Blog

Well, I have started to put my blog out there which means I must be getting into it a lot more, I have added it to a couple of sites, tidied it up by adding a cool cloud label thing (at the bottom of the page) and added some profile stuff so it maybe time to write something that makes sense so that someone may actually read it…

I Wanna Be A Rock Star

I want a brand new house on an episode of Cribs and a bathroom I can play baseball in and a king size tub big enough for ten plus me, i'll need a credit card that's got no limit, and a big black jet with a bedroom in it, gonna join the mile high club at thirty-seven thousand feet.

My Day

I went to work, came home at dinner with man flu, went to bed, got up, had tea (bacon sandwiches), put the girls to bed (they went to sleep after about 15 minutes phew), wrapped a couple of Christmas presents with my love, watched a movie (me myself and Irene, I never tire of that film always makes me laugh) and off to bed which is a good idea because I feel lousy and I don’t think I will go into work tomorrow.

The Christmas Tree Is Up

Yes the tree is up and the task fell to me once again to untangle the Christmas lights although it wasn't to bad this year but this is the first year with a tree and a couple of inquisitive mobile toddlers (I will give it a day before it topples for the first time).

Kate Nash - Made Of Bricks - Birds

All the stars in the sky and the leaves in the trees, all broken bits that make you trip up and grassy bits inbetween all the matter in the world, is how much i like you.

The Trouble With Twins Pt 2

Yet another night not in my bed and a very upset wife but tonight the mother inlaw is coming and she isn't leaving until the, now named, devil children are in bed, the mother inlaw is all knowing and all powerful, she will tame them :)

The Trouble With Twins

The trouble with twins is that if one doesn’t sleep, the other doesn’t either especially when they are in the same room, so we split them up, my wife and I have to take in turns on the couch not getting much sleep from the ticking clock, so as you can imagine it is driving my wife up the wall and in turn turning me into a grumpy man at work and at home, please help!!!

Cold Callers Nightmare

My dad sent me this earlier today, it left me and half the people in my office in stitches.

On The Late Shift

I work from 1pm to 9pm when I am on late shift, like today, which is quite cool because I am the only one in my department, I can get on with my work, listen to music and generally get on with stuff at my own pace as well as surf the web without anyone looking over my shoulders.

Christmas Wars

December the 1st and war has began to get all the Christmas presents in time but this year I’m all done already so I can sit back and watch normal, nice people get very angry that the toy they promised their little child is out of stock from every retail store and there is one left on eBay for twice what it costs in shops, he he he.

Man Flu

Talking about man flu, I found this great vid on youtube that sums up the pain us men have to go though every time we catch it.

A Good Nights Sleep

I went to bed early last night and got 10 hours full sleep which ment that I woke up this morning full of energy, that got me thinking and I wonder how I would feel after 24 hours sleep but I doubt that will ever happen unless I have really bad man flu.

My Life As A Hero

Blog Search Engine
I watched the new episode of Heroes today, I was thinking what power I would like and I thought that being able to do anything that was on TV would be cool because you could watch Heroes and then copy everyone on it, the full heroes package thank you very much.

Monday Pressure

Blog Search Engine
Most Mondays, at work, I need to get a process from point A to Point B so that the guy on the late shift can get it to point C, everything went wrong today but by the end of the day, point B was achieved with style.

My £1500 Couch

The only way I can stop my 20 month old twin girls jumping all over my new, very comfortable leather couch, is to sit on the uncomfortable floor while they jump all over me instead :) .
