Hello and welcome to my blog. I've been getting some thoughts & feelings, exasperations and the odd happy moment down on the blog which helps my sanity and, I hope, provides a little entertaining read for you for a couple of minutes!

Right now I am mostly concentrating on getting through a rocky financial patch which I really hope will be cleared (all being well) by the end of Summer 2013. In the meantime I need to concentrate on continuing to do well in my "new" job (actually got it in Sept 2011 but it still feels new!) and living my life as frugally as possible.

Thanks for stopping by and if you leave me an encouraging comment, it'll make my day. :-)

WHAT is that awful noise?

Oh it's Nicki Minaj.

Oh my good GOD.  I had a look on YouTube as everywhere I look at the moment I see a picture of this girl (and I think I read she performed or is performing at the Super Bowl?  Something else that bypasses me annually.....no offence my USA readers but I am sure our soccer FA Cup doesn't interest you either!) so I thought I would take a look.

Oh man.  How bad is music (and I use that word loosely I really do) now?  I know every generation has listened to younger generations music and thought theirs was better but honestly, the word dirge comes to mind.  I only managed to listen for about half a minute then I had to turn it off.  I'm so glad I haven't got children.  I feel sorry for them.  No jobs at the moment, no great prospects to look forward to, less industry every year producing even fewer opportunities, a Government seemingly hell bent on making everything as bleak as possible and on top of all that, really really awful music as well.

Still, looking on the bright side, I did watch a programme last week that said there are no asteroids large enough to cause a global catastrophe due to hit the earth within the next 100 years.  Hooray!


  1. Never heard of her. Have just experienced her on YouTube and I lasted about 10 seconds. Oh my! I think asteroids would be more exciting.

  2. As a Music teacher I try to keep an open mind about the next generation's music choices.... nevertheless I completely agree with you!!! Jx

  3. I'm so happy about the asteroid thing. As I'm only 62 and confidently expect to live for he next 100 years, I'm very reassured!!
