After a long time on Live Journal, I have decided to switch blogs. I am moving to Blogger. Live Journal is okay but I think there are better brands out there.


I have found a program that transfers ljs to blogspot (although only 50 a day, there's nearly 800 entries here so it'll take weeks).

Unfortunately comments are not transferred so if you want to see the witty comments you've made in the past you will have to trek back here.
11th-May-2008 10:17 am - Quartery change pot cash in
Hey ladies
£66 in baggable bags, another £10+ in assorted change. I'm going to take the £10 of change to Sainsbury's today as it's all rubbish small denominations.

Plus I like the idea of starting afresh in my new house.

The down side of not waiting for a full bag and taking it to the bank is that the machine takes about 8% and give it to charty. 80p. Boo!

Fancy a beer?
April's been away all day at a Radio 1 concert in Maidenhead (Kent) so i've had the place to myself for the first time in absolutely ages.

What have I done? Not much, went for a walk, posted some Love Film dvds, watched some rugby league on TV (good game), played FM, watched LOTR The Fellowship of the Ring (again...), had a couple of beers and sat on my ass. Plus I cooked the most amazing rib-eye steak with onions, garlic and potatoes. Mmm mmm.

Hope you've all had fun.

The cat picture is very apt today.
7th-May-2008 07:31 am - Stuart is still not well
I had yesterday off as I was feeling terrible, i'm not much better now, so am not going to go in today too.

I hate being ill.
1st-May-2008 09:43 am - Anglesey
I'm off to Anglesey with Steve this weekend to see my Nan.

We haven't been up to see her for a year or so now but we finally booked a weekend to head up.

Google reckons it's only 5 hours and a bit, but as it's the bank holiday I reckon it'll be more like 8 or 9... I think it's roughly 300 miles door to door.

Luckily Steve's insured on the car so we can split the driving. Saying that, it's not really 'luckily' as we purposely put him on there.

Incidentally this cat picture is my Nan's cat Woosie.

Hey ladies
If only last night's game was in Football Manager.

The master tactician that is Stuartini Clarketti could have quit the game reloaded the save game.

Bloody Chelsea. I can't believe that I actually want Manchester United to go on and win the thing.

23rd-Apr-2008 10:13 am - Exchange!
Fancy a beer?
I have now exchanged! Whoop, whoop!

We complete on Friday 23rd May!!!

bhatti25, freaky81, monlz5,

These people have added me as friends, but who are what are they?
22nd-Apr-2008 02:08 pm - Finger
Fancy a beer?
I'm off to get my finger checked out in a minute.

Hopefully they'll just have to take the bandage off, give it a quick clean, give me some exercises to do and everything will be fine.

The bandage is looking quite grotty now, it hass been dipped accidentally into some tomatoes and two different types of gravy.

Argh! I hate the bloody thing!!!

Some days it's fine and then others it just can't be bothered to work!!!

11th-Apr-2008 10:27 am - The Clark has landed
Hey ladies

Back to good old blighty.
10th-Apr-2008 09:47 am - On my way home soon
Licky Lips
Our flight is at three(ish) this afteroon, that's around 5am, in the UK. We're due to get back to the UK by 6am on Friday morning. Urgh!

Our mortgage offer has come through.
18th-Mar-2008 02:17 pm - Where actors go to die...
Poor old Captain Birds Eye has died, it was probably down to the fact that Suggs is now the company's advertising frontman.


An actors' retirement home eh?

This got me thinking who else might be in there???

Also, do other professions have their own exclusive retirement homes?
17th-Mar-2008 09:15 am - My weekend
Fancy a beer?
Pretty good all in all.

I was due to go to the dogs on Friday night as April has never been but, Steve and Jenny called off. In the end I had a few beers with the guys from work before meeting up with April in town and going to a Pizza Express.

On Saturday we went to Linfield races with a couple of old Lloyd's friends (and there other halves). Although we missed the first race there were still 7 chances to win. I won 1 of them...

Total stakes: £40
Total winnings: £3.83 + £2.50 stake.
Hit ratio: 16%


After that we went back round to there place, played some Wii, then on to the pub.

On Sunday we took a drive to our 'new' house again (we were only 15 miles away) then met up with a couple of April's friends in a great village pub nearby.

We eventually got back to London at around 6:30 and was glad to finally sit down and relax.

Licky Lips
I'm now booked in for my hand operation.

It's the first Monday after I get back from Australia.

I'm looking forward to watching it all and finding out how you chisel bone out of a finger.

Fancy a beer?
I was bored this lunch time and couldn't be bothered to go for a swim so I went and had a look round some shops.

And what did I find?

Spaceballs for £3! Excellent!

I'm still bored though.
11th-Mar-2008 11:44 am - Doh
I bought the LOTR RTS last week whilst on holiday.

It took me until 3 levels in before I felt a sense of dejavu.

I searched the cupboard where I keep my games and couldn't find it, I then assumed that I must have played a demo at some point.

Then during a few beers with my brother on Sunday night I was chatting about the game and it turns out that I lent it to him 6 months ago. Doh!

What a bloody idiot!

It was on special at £15 so I guess it could have been worse.
10th-Mar-2008 09:52 am - Update on house
Melon Head
It's been a week since we put in our initial offer on the house so I thought I would update my journal accordingly.

-Our mortgage has been arranged and ready to sign.
-Our valuation and home buyers report has been done and we are waiting for the final report.
-We have found a solicitor that actually lives on our street and he is about to begin the searches and draw up the contracts.

We went round again this weekend to have a second look around and take a handful of pictures. We also wanted to confirm the fixtures and fittings that would be included. There are a couple of beds, washer, dryer and dish washer that we wouldn't mind keeping as we'd only have to get new ones otherwise.

Everything seams to be running along smoothly so watch this space. Ideally we'll get it most of it sorted before we head off to Australia.

A great day for umbrella manufacturers.

I saw 4 dead umbrellas on my way to the tube this morning, and I saw another 5 outside Tower Hill tube.
29th-Feb-2008 11:17 am - House hunting
Melon Head
We're house hunting tomorrow. We're going to drive to Tonbridge (being careful not to go in any bus lanes) and have a chat to a number of estate agents.

There are about 10 on the High Street so plenty to choose from.

We have 5 months in our current flat but it would be nice to get the majority of things done before June, leaving us a month spare.
29th-Feb-2008 11:14 am - Boiler trouble... again!
I've had to move a half day's holiday to cover and it's on a Friday afternoon too!

That's valuable 'lunch' time! Doh!

It's the 3rd time in 7 months!
