A winter wonder land

Over the past week here in England it has done nothing but snow snow snow and oh wait..... SNOW!

Even though I have been slipping and sliding and even fallen over, I must admit that I think that snow makes for beautiful pictures so I took the opportunity to take some and put them on here so I hope you enjoy my pictures.

I like this one with the river

I don't know who these people are, I hope they didn't mind me taking their picture.

I wonder if this guy actually got any fish.

I was even brave enough to take a picture of this guy right before he started walking towards me, thenI walked away quick and calm.

I think that this one is my favorite

and you will never guess who I saw... I saw the real father christmas, want proof?
ok here it is...

ok ok maybe it's not the real father christmas.. alright it's me lol

Snow brings out the child

It was just a few days ago now when it started to snow here in England.
I have noticed a change in people it seems that even the old have a child in them that comes out when it snows.

There were men looking out the window of the store and I heard one old man say "I 'm excited now" and I must admit I felt a rush of excitement. I think that snow truly brings the feeling of Christmas with it.

I see kids throwing snowballs and I want to join in and have a snowball war with them. I see men on snow boards and women making snow men, I love the feel of the snow under my feet. I take caution as I walk across ice and I keep a eye out for those incoming snow balls.

do you notice the inner child come out in the snow ?

Strange work stories

I found these stories on my home and thought they were so strange that I would post them.

They are the strangest but true work stories from 2009 and I believe that some were even in the news, so sit back and enjoy as you read these rather odd tales

1. 'Oops! Employee flips, damages borrowed Ferrari'

A 23-year-old woman driving her boss's borrowed Ferrari in California lost control of the car and flipped it, causing an estimated $125,000 in damage. The woman was unharmed, but her boss was said to be "irate." (MSNBC.com)

2. '34 hospitalized after co-worker sprays perfume'

When almost 150 people at a Texas bank call center became ill, reporting dizziness and shortness of breath, officials suspected carbon monoxide or some other toxic fume was the culprit. But when two people complained about dizziness after a co-worker sprayed perfume and then others began to feel sick, it was discovered that the perfume was to blame. Thirty-four people were taken to hospitals, 12 by ambulance, and 110 people were treated on the scene. No one knows what type of perfume was sprayed. (MSNBC.com)

3. 'Man hurt himself to "avoid work" '

Steven Reid, a 23-year-old hotel cleaner in Scotland, just wanted a day off of work. Rather than asking for one, Reid claimed he had been assaulted. To convince his boss, he took a razor from his pocket and repeatedly dragged it down his face. He also picked up a boulder and repeatedly hit himself on the head and body. He went to the police station to report "the assault." When asked about the incident, Reid said, "Looking back, I should have just phoned work and asked them for the day off." (BBC News)

4. 'Worker fired for all-caps e-mails'

Vicki Walker, of Auckland, New Zealand, was fired for sending e-mail messages in all-capital letters. The employer said that Walker's co-workers complained about her "shouty" and confrontational e-mails. Walker was awarded $11,500 on the premise that the company had no official e-mail style guide; therefore, her messages did not amount to grounds for dismissal. (UPI.com)

5. 'Bodybuilding firefighters accused of faking disability'

Two Boston firefighters were charged with fraud after they were caught bodybuilding -- despite having filed for disability. Albert Arroyo, 46, and James Famolare, 65, both sought accidental disability pensions after allegedly suffering injuries while on the job. Arroyo claimed he fell while walking in a fire station, saying it left him permanently disabled from the performance of his duties. Famolare claimed that he suffered a career-ending injury while moving a box of files. Arroyo was caught bodybuilding while on disability and prosecutors say he "failed to disclose his repeated visits to gyms where he trained for a May 2008 bodybuilding competition." (TheBostonChannel.com)

6. 'Washington Post features editor punches colleague over 'charticle''

Chaos ensued at The Washington Post when Henry Allen, 68, features editor, reportedly punched one of his writers in the head. According to The Washingtonian, a style editor at the Post assigned a semi-political story to writers Monica Hesse and Manuel Roig-Franzia, asking them to compile a list of disclosures made by congressmen who are being investigated for ethics violations. They came up with a 'charticle' with a dozen examples. Allen was outraged, apparently at their creativity, and let them know his feelings. In the midst of Allen's barrage, Roig-Franzia apparently said, "Oh, Henry, don't be such a [expletive]." That's when Allen lunged at Roig-Franzia and started throwing punches. Allen was reportedly banned from the newsroom, just before his Nov. 28 retirement. (Daily Finance)

7. 'Teller fired for foiling robbery'

Jim Nicholson was fired from his job as a bank teller at a Key Bank branch in Seattle after chasing down a bank-robbery suspect rather than giving into his demands. A potential robber approached Nicholson, gave him a bag and told him to fill the bag with money. Nicholson asked the robber to see his weapon and was told, "It's a verbal ransom." Nicholson threw the bag on the floor, jumped over the counter and took off after the would-be robber, who ran out of the bank and down the street outside with Nicholson in pursuit. With the help of another civilian, Nicholson caught the suspect and held him until police arrived to take him into custody. His heroics didn't last long, as he was fired for breaking bank protocol that employees are to comply with a robber's request to prevent others from getting hurt. (MSNBC.com)

8. 'Postal worker helps himself to $86,000 worth of Gamefly games'

Reginald Johnson, 34, of Germantown, Pa., admitted to stealing 2,200 Gamefly games, valued at $86,000, while working as a mail-processing clerk between April and September 2008. Gamefly is a video-game rental service that sends games to subscribers through the mail for $15.95 or $22.95 a month. Johnson allegedly traded the games to a GameStop for store credit. When federal workers tried to arrest him, Johnson led them on a car chase before crashing the car and getting caught. (Philly.com)

9. 'Worker sued over $29,000 tip'

Sara Gaspar, a former Notre Dame employee, is being sued by the school for spending a tip that was supposedly given to her by mistake. Gaspar was given a $29,387 tip after being paid for catering work in April. Notre Dame now says that it was a typing mistake and is demanding Gaspar repay the money. The problem is, it has already been spent, which resulted in the lawsuit. (WiredPRNews.com)

10. 'Hotel-casino worker exposed to secondhand smoke sues employer for $5 million'

Kanie Kastroll, a casino dealer at the Wynn Las Vegas, is suing the hotel for not protecting its employees against secondhand smoke from customers. Kastroll claims she developed asthma and other health problems because of secondhand smoke. She also says that the casino doesn't allow employees to request a smoke-free table and that management allows gamblers to blow smoke directly in the dealers' faces, forbids dealers from protesting, requires them to tell patrons that smoking is allowed and encourages smoking by offering free cigarettes to gamblers. Kastroll says that employees who don't follow these rules are disciplined. (AllHeadlineNews.com)

A world designed to get us in debt

I must firstly confess that I am also in debt, but I am now working my way out of my debt and should be all clear in the not to distant future.

But it seems that there is a whole world temptations out there designed to draw us in chew us up and then spit us out again. I will openly admit that my debts are my own fault and I am now paying the price for that.

but what about when it isn't the persons fault. what about those people who trust the bank or company that they invest their money in and then the bank or company. changes the deal all of a sudden. or they will charge you astronomical prices should you fall just a little behind in your payment to them.

you owe them a penny and they charge you a pound. I have seen this happen just the other day and it happened to me. I have a overdraft that i have not touched for at least two years now but I have been paying it off a little every month. I was charged interest which roughly means that for every 25 pounds I owed I was charged 3 pounds at the end of the month. it was simple and easy.

It seems that the bank changed the rules, not just for me but for all their customers. the new rules are anyone with a overdraft would now be charged a pound a day every day until the overdraft was settled. and if this makes you go over your overdraft limit even by one pence then you are charged 5 pounds a day every day until you bring your account up to date, so now instead of owing just 20 pounds a month I would now be paying £150 pounds a month just for been a few pounds over my overdraft.

it stinks but I have now sorted it out, but what about those people who can't afford it. they could literally end up owing 1000's for just a few pence of debt.

I do truly believe that it is a world designed to get people in debt one way or the other

Has christmas become corrupt?

As the title says

Has Christmas become corrupt? This is the feeling I have had for a good few years now.
Not so much on the spiritual side but on the money side.

when I was about 20 years younger it seemed so different, it was all about family and been with the people you love, even though that value is still in the spirit of Christmas it seems that it has all become about how much money that the company's can make out of people.

to me Christmas should be about family and the people you love. without those things Christmas would mean nothing anyway.

I was talking to a customer in my store and he agreed also and we said about how it seems that people are almost expected to buy things for people now, he had two children and when I told him about how my mother told me that she used to get a apple and orange and a shiny penny for Christmas he laughed and said "if I got my kids that they would throw a tantrum".

Even the stores try to make as much money as they can from people. they advertise all the things they sell over and 0ver again and I am sure that they even wait till kids are at home after school to play the advertisements on the TV knowing that if the kids see these adverts they will beg mom and dad to get them the toy and mom and dad will try so hard to get them the toy so they don't disappoint their loved ones.

So I ask, has the spirit of Christmas being corrupted by the greed of big company's and their expectations of your expectations?

I know I am just rambling on now but I just wanted to get the point across I hope it makes sense to all who read it.

I love My Jenn

I love my Jennifer so much
and while I am away from her I miss her touch.

I miss the way we talk all day

I miss the way she would cook for me
I miss taking her photograph.

I will be there again soon with my Jenn
and together we will be.

Happy every day and in bliss and worry free

I love you my Beautiful Jennifer.

On life support

My computer is now On life support I know it sounds drastic but I am worried.
It all started while I was in the states visiting My beautiful Jenn, I went in to the motel and I noticed a strange sound coming from the room while I was in the bathroom.

I looked out and my computer was turning on and then turning off again all by it's self.
I took the computer to the college library where they said that because the fan was not working properly, my computer was over heating almost instantly.

I had to get a fan tray and place it under my laptop and even that hasn't done the trick all together.
I have to keep turning my laptop on and then letting the fan tray cool it to the point where y laptop will stay on without over heating. so you could literally say that my laptop is on life support.

I am going to see about getting a new fan for it as soon as I can until then I will keep it on life support.

am I starting to get old?

I am now 30 years old and today it occurred to me that in just a few months now I will be 31, if the years fly by as fast as they have done this past ten years before I know it I will be 40 before I know it. Just what age is considered getting old?

or is 30's the prime of a man's life. are these the years when I am going to reach my peak in my physical status. Will i be the fastest and strongest I am going to be.
I still feel young and I still feel just as strong as in my teens.

I do feel stronger but in different ways I feel emotionally stronger. I feel more endurant . but in the back of my mind I wonder when all that will start to diminish and age will take hold of me. I am sure that it wont happen for many years yet but I guess it is always good to keep a eye on these things.

For the time been I am young ish and I have my health that I am so grateful for every day.
So I guess until I get old I will just keep been young.

As I set off back to England I was really sad and i make a promise that I will not rest untill I am with my jenn again. I don't sleep on the plane not just because I can't but because if I do then it feels like the last day that I spent with my jenn is over and I just don't want that time to end. Coming back to England and been without my jenn is the hardest thing I ever have to do.I know that I will be going back and been with my jenn soon but I just miss her so bad .

My first baptism

Well today was my first ever baptism That I have given. I baptised my Beautiful Jenn.
It was truly a amazing experience.

We had a couple of Elders, Elder Jenkins and Elder Olson come with us to the church . we went in Jennifer's car and talked most of the way about the size of the buildings that we passed along the way. We Finlay got to the church and parked and I remember thinking that I didn't feel nervous at all, but it was early yet.

We all headed in to the church and went in to the sacrament meeting where Mr Blake, Morgan's dad was sat. We sat next to him and soon after Morgan and her sister arrived and we all sat together. we had the sacrament and then headed in to our separate classes.

soon it was the last lesson before the baptism and the nerves were setting in. I started thinking to my self, What if I fall in the pool and Jenn falls with me. I was now imagining silly scenario's like one strand of Jenn's hair not going under the water and I would have to do the entire process again.

Before I knew it the time was here. we gathered in a room and sat facing a wall with double doors,I could hear the sound of running water behind the doors, and I now felt very nervous.
Elder lee lead me in to a side room where I was able to see the pool where I was to baptise Jenn in just a few minutes.

I was given a white jump suit to wear . so I got dressed and walked back out in to the room where every body was waiting. I felt like every pair of eyes were following me, then Jenn came in to the room wearing white. Morgan never left Jennifer's side she really was a great help for her I think. we all sat down and the baptism ceremony began

Mr Blake said the open prayer and then mine and Jennifer's good friend Morgan gave a talk and she really did a wonderful Job, THANK YOU MORGAN!!. and then it was time.
I walked in to the side room and looked at the pool and I really was so nervous at this point. I looked across to the other side of the small room and Jennifer had entered the room through the other side door.

I looked towards the double doors the joined the baptism pool to the viewing room and I saw Brother Collins head peering through and looking at me. I said to Jenn "do you want to get in first or should I ". Brother Collins gave me a nod to tell me to go in first. I walked down the steps in to the pool and felt the water surround my ankles and then with each step go up my body until I was on the floor of the pool and the water was just below my waist.

Jennifer walked down the stairs at her side and entered the pool. her dress was resting on the surface of the water and Jenn was pushing her dress under the water and as soon as she pushed down one part of her dress another part would pop up to the surface. she eventually got the situation under control and Mr Blake and Brother Collins opened the double doors and I could now see the room full of people looking back at me .

Mr Blake and Stuart , Morgan's brother were the witnesses and they stood at either side of the double doors. I was now ready and the strange thing is that as soon as I had entered the water my nerves had disappeared, well at least most of the feeling . the Children in the room had all gathered around the side of the pool and where sat on the floor watching. I looked at Mr Blake and he gave the nod to continue.

With Jennifer stood in the center of the pool with me I gave her my left arm and I held my right arm up and Said her full name and the baptism blessing. I said it in a loud clear manner so every body could here it. I said Amen and placed my right hand on Jennifer's back and I laid her back in the water.

I made sure she was completely under the water before I pulled her back out again. I raised her up from the water , I felt so relieved. I had done my very first baptism , I was over joyed that it had gone so well.

I walked back up the stairs and turned around to Jenn and gave her the thumbs up and said in a raised whisper YAY WE DID IT!!! I got in to the changing room and I couldn't stop smiling. I had just done something so incredible I had just baptised the woman I love.

I went back in to the viewing room and sat down with Jennifer. We had some food and took some pictures and then left for Jenn's collage.

What a wonderful day..

A special day

Today is such a very special day.

Today is the day that I baptize Jenn in to the Latter day saints. I am kind of nervous but I am sure that every thing will go smooth.

over the last few days me and Jenn have been having so much fun, I have bought her a beautiful ring that she loves. We have had dinner at the Blake's house which was soooo nice. I think that this is my heaven it really is perfect.

We went to the movies and we saw couples retreat which was very funny and we had popcorn and we had five guys , not at the same time but the two meals in the same day don't mix very well. Later that night we watched sex and the city and we both felt sick from the popcorn and five guys.

We wen to the Blake's again and we had brunch and it was delicious. and then we took Morgan and her room mate to five guys and I had my very first American hot dog yummi!!!

and so now we are up to speed.

I will write a blog later on to let you all know how the baptism went.

such a amazing few days

I have had a really wonderful last few days with Jennifer, we have been doing so many amazing things.

just yesterday me and Jennifer went on a horse and carriage ride together I think that it was the happiest day of my life so far it really was perfect. the sun was shining and it was warm. we took a ride in the carriage that was pulled by a horse named Dilbert and the horse master was called Lester. and ruby the ranch dog came along for a run.

I just sat back with Jenn resting her head on my shoulder and I just couldn't help but think just how happy I was.

Today I went to the park with the two Elders in the area and we had a game of football. I was still hurting from the game I had played with them just two days before but it was all good fun.

and me and Jenn watched the movie couples retreat which was quite funny.
I am really so happy and having the time of my life here with my beautiful Jenn.

day with My beautiful Jenn

Today we had to be up early because Jenn had college. so while she was at college I went for a jog and got back just in time for Jenn to finish class and we both went for a walk around the square and I let Jenn pick her birthday gift out.

She found a ring with a topaz stone . it really was beautiful. and I had a waffle for the first time ever at the waffle house, it was so very nice. I couldn't eat anything els after that and I still feel full to the brim now. it has been another great day with my Jenn.

every day with her is a blessing

days one and two with Jenn

I'm here!!

I am now in the USA with My Jenn and I am so very happy.
firstly let me begin by saying I had the flight from hell, I have never sat right at the back of a plane before but I did this time and the turbulence was so bad at one point the plane shook so bad it threw me in to the guy sat next to me and he head butted the window.

I got to Atlanta in one peace and got through customs and I picked up my new bright red bag.
and there was my Beautiful Jenn. I threw my arms around her I was so happy. I have missed her so bad, and now that I am with her everything is perfect.

We got a ride from Jenn's friend Claire and then me and Jenn went to the piazza restaurant, I had spaghetti and Jenn had pizza. after we went and booked in to the motel.
after getting my clothing packed away we went and met Jenn's room mates. we talked for a while and also watched a movie. by the end of the movie I could feel my self drifting away in to dream world.I made it back to the motel and I cant really remember anything els .

I woke up the next morning and My jaw hurt so bad my shoulders were hurting in fact most of my body was hurting. I had jet lag. and today was Jenn's birthday . We went to church and for the first time I met mine and Jenn's good friend Morgan and she is a great person. she took lots of pictures of me and Jenn.

after we all went to Church and met even more people. I will be baptising Jenn next week and the church I went to today is the same church where I will be baptising her. I am really excited about that. after church we went back to Morgans house and had a wonderful meal with Morgans parents . they are such a great family and I am blessed to know them.

so that pretty much brings us up to speed and at the moment i am sat watching some American for me life doesn't get any better. I am with the woman that I love and I am the happiest man alive

Just sat at the airport

Well I am now sat at the airport and the time is 11:22 pm and my flight isn't until 6:am
I have had a walk around the terminal and there is no one about apart from the cleaner, who keeps giving me odd looks because I am laid on the floor typing this, and I'm not sure if any body is interested but I just did that entire top bit without making a single spelling error, I checked.

so all I have to do now is wait for the check in to open in about 4 and a half hours and Ill be good to go . I have had a chocolate bar and I feel kind of sick from it but I'm sure I'll live.

I have managed to locate the plug sockets so I have a power supply for my computer and I can charge up my phone . in fact its almost like home. just missing the cats and my mother who insists that I call her the second I land over in the USA.

Well the next time I write a post I will be in the USA and happy with My Jenn.
I cant wait

Today is the day

Today is the day that I set off to be with my Jenn.
After been up till about 4 am packing I am now all ready for the trip and am very excited to be with my beautiful Jenn again.

This is where all the hard work pays off.
in about 5 hours I will be catching the train to the airport an then from there to be with my Jenn.
I will be writing a blog every day about what I have been up to. kind of like a journal,

I will be writing one from the airport. I will be waiting there for about 9 hours so lots of time to write something.

I am so sorry to all my readers that I have not been writing half as much as I should. I have been so very busy with work, i have been doing 8 and 9 hour shifts and i even pulled a couple of 11 hour shits all so I can be with Jenn.

but I will now be writing a lot more, at least once a day for the next couple of weeks so tune in and give em a read.

At the moment I am just sat in the living room waiting to get in the shower, this is the deep breath before the jump. the quiet before the storm . in a few hours it will be all go go go .
I find my self thinking, have I got everything I need,, did I put my passport in my pocket. did I forget to pack anything?.

all these thoughts keep flying through my mind but I guess that's normal.
all I really have to do now is just get my shower get dressed and charge my phone and I will be ready for the journey.

I feel a bit nervous I get this every time I travel to be with my Jenn. I just want to make sure everything is perfect.

and I just wanted to say to all that read my blogs "Thank you so much for your patients with my lack of writing I promise I will be writing a lot more from now on and reading a lot more also".

Battle against the cold

As I announced in my last post I have been jogging for quite some time now, I love to jog even though I don't feel like jogging some days I always feel better for it after.

I have been used to jogging in quite warm temperatures and my time has been gradually improving and I feel more active and able to do physical exorcises.
But now the temperature has started to drop I am finding it more difficult to run , I feel I am fighting for breath more and my legs are getting tierd a lot quicker.

I still make it the distance and in good time , but I just didn't realise that this would happen. will I have the same struggle when it gets warm again? I find that the major weakness I have while I am jogging is that I think a lot about the speed that I am jogging.
Am I jogging to slow or to fast should I space my footsteps further apart.

Perhaps I should just try not to think and enjoy it.

Catching up

I have been so very busy lately so here is my chance to catch up on what I have been doing with the rest of the world,, or who ever reads my posts.

Over the last few weeks I have been virtually living at work. I have been doing 45 hour weeks. which is very good with me going to see Jenn in just over two weeks now. I am not sure f I have mentioned that I also Jog from work at night so after a 8 or 9 hour shift I jog the 2 miles back to the house which keeps me fit and healthy

I started Jogging about 7 months ago now. I started by Jogging a little at a time and each day I would add a little more distance to my route. I finally decided that I would cap the distance at 2 miles which is the distance from work to my house plus its about 75% up hill and 25% flat and I jog about 4 times a week or every time I work till close.

Apart from that I have been gathering the things I need for my trip to see my Beautiful Jenn.
With Just over two weeks to go now I am Finlay prepared as long as they don't change the flight details again which they have done twice now, but I'm sure everything is set for go.

I am also going to have the great privilege of baptizing my Jenn when I get there which I am very looking forward to , but I must confess I am a little nervous about but I am sure I will do well.

I am also planning to do a daily journal on here of the time I spend with my Jenn so I can look back and remember what we did this time round. There will be lots of pi cures, I always take lots of pictures when I am with Jenn, of places and scenery and of course of my beautiful Jenn. I don't want to miss a single detail.

I know I haven't been writing on here as much as I should but I have just been so very busy. I have been literally coming home to go to bed to get up to go to work but it is all worth it and I will do the work a million times over to be with my Jenn.

Growing up

It was just a few days ago now that I was at work and it was coming close to the end of the night. My niece Naomi came in to the store with her baby, we talked for a while about things in general.
eventually she had to go and just before she left she bought a drink, she came to the counter drink in hand and she got out her purse and handed me the money.

All of a sudden I started to think about how she had grown up, here was this young woman stood in front of me who once was a small child who I used to take to school and look after. I cleaned her knee when she fell over and I helped her with her inhaler when she had to take the medication to help her breath. I used to take her to the park with her sister and we would play for hours.

I just can't believe that she is all grown up now, she has a baby and her own money and a boyfriend. I guess I just have trouble accepting that she will grow up. I always see her as my little niece.

I don't trust politics

If there is one thing I really don't trust in life it would have to be politics.
For as long as I can remember I can't really state one issue that they have made any better, it really just seems to be a downward spiral as far as politics are concerned.

At the moment it is coming to that time of year when the advertisements by the politicians are coming on the TV. they all promise you the world neatly wrapped and exactly how you would want it.

Now there is my problem, for some one who is going to possibly run the country they seem so eager to please and just seem to be saying what people want to hear. for example a lot of them will say "We will bring the soldiers back home" or "We will bring our country out of this recession".Seems to me that a lot of what they did got us in to the recession in the first place.

When was the last time you heard one of them say " I can't promise you but I will try"
They are always making statements of promises that they just can't seem to keep.
I would believe them more if they said I will try rather than making a promise and then when they get their butt in the seat nothing happens.

I'm not saying they are all bad I just don't trust the system that they represent, I quote the old saying "Power is corrupt, and absolute power is absolute corruption".

A true horror story

I can't believe I am telling this story, well should I say I can't believe it actually happened for me to be able to tell you about it. It is so discusting I want to throw up just writing about it.
This one goes right up there with the articles you would read in a magazine.

It happened just last week when I was walking to work. I had been busy all day and had was beginning to feel rather hungry, knowing that I wouldn't get much chance to have a snack at work I decided I would get something to eat before I got there.

There was a small mobile sandwich stall along the way that I had noticed but never actually tried before so I figured I would give it a try. I ordered a ham and cheese salad sandwich my favorite.
I paid the money grabbed the sandwich and continued on my walk to work.

I took a bite of the sandwich and it was bliss. I was walking fast to get to work on time and enjoying my sandwich. I took another bite and it felt like I had a piece of cheese hanging out of my mouth so I felt at my lips and pulled it of my mouth ready to put it back in my mouth.

I looked in my hand and to my horror it wasn't a piece of cheese at all. It was in fact half of a quite big spider. I couldn't believe my eyes that were now watering because I was about to throw up.
I looked inside the rest of the sandwich and the other half of the spider wasn't there.
Yes that's right I had just devoured half a spider with my sandwich. Trying to hold back the sick that was now in my throat I threw the rest of the sandwich in the closest bin and I never went to that sandwich stall again.

All set

I have now done every thing that needs to be done to prepare for my trip to see my beautiful Jenn
The Dream of been with here again is now a realisation.

As soon as I got back from been with here in April I set straight back to work to make my dream of been with her again come true. I knew it would mean a lot of long hours and hard work, but it is a price I was more than willing to pay.

I put in to motion the idea and saw it through till the end.
and so now every thing is set and soon I will be off to see my Jenn, I am so happy and I can't wait to be with her very soon.

Missing my Jenn

I miss my Jenn so very much every single day I am away from her.
I know it won't be long now until I am with her again and I am counting the hours.
I speak to her every day and hear her sweet voice,

I love to hold her in my arms and tell her I love her.
I love the way she smiles and the way she laughs, I love every thing about my Jenn.

Jenn is my world and everything in it. my day begins with thinking about her and ends with her in my mind.

I can't wait to be with my beautiful Jenn again very soon.

I miss my Jenn like crazy

Small cat diary

I finally got it, Well almost.
The long awaited clip of Melissa bringing down the dirty laundry.

she will usually bring the laundry in to the room or to her hiding place but when she saw me filming she was caught in the act and drooped the sock the instant she realized she was busted.

So here is the video I managed to get of her .

She truly is a sneaky cat but I love her.

I Don't like this sitiuation

The situation been that as I write this blog the father of my nieces child is here seeing the baby.
Now I know that sounds a little evil of me and please believe me when I say that I am not a evil man but the situation of how all this came about just doesn't seem fair.

Let me explain. Before this situation came to what it is now the father and Natalie had broken up and his family tried everything they could to try to cause trouble for Natalie even to the point of calling the social services and claiming that Natalie couldn't take care of the baby.

The father would stalk Natalie following her and getting people to follow her and at one point he even sat in the middle of a road and said he wouldn't move until Natalie went back with him.
there are numerous thing I could talk about but it just gets me annoyed to think about all the things that he has done.

But he is the baby's father and it's for that reason that I haven't said anything to him. He got a court order to say that he has visitation rights twice a week and until a appropriate address can be found this house is the meeting point and it's that Idea I have the problem with mostly. After all he has done we are letting him in to our house again, but it is for the sake of the baby and the right of the father to know his child that compels me to allow this situation and even though I don't like the situation as person the moral of allowing a father to see his baby overrides my feeling and that's why I allow him in the house.

I hope that feeling this way doesn't make me a bad person but I just can't help it I really don't like the father.

Small cat diary

This week I wanted to concentrate on Melissa and her habit of grabbing dirty laundry and either bringing it down to the living room or just hiding it somewhere in the house in her secret undiscovered location.

It is kind of funny when she does her laundry thing. I will be sat down stairs and all of a sudden I will hear a howling sound over and over again. she will then come down stairs with usually a sock in her mouth , but she has tried things as big as a T shirt before.
She will walk in to the room with the item in her mouth lay the clothing own in the middle of the room and then either run away or grab the item of clothing and we never see it again.

I have set my self a challenge for the small cat diary, I will capture her doing this on my phone and then put the video on here. I do have a picture of her about to commit her act but when I took this picture she ran away straight after

I will get her sooner or later so keep your eyes peeled on my blog

I met a Apostlle

What a day it has been,

Today was the stake conference for the latter day saints in my city.
I had seen other conferences on the TV before, so I kinda knew what to expect.

One of the twelve Apostles was there, Elder David A. Bednar.
He wanted to meet with the people that had been baptized in the last two years, so me and about 60 other people sat in a room and waited.

Elder David Bendar came in and sat at the head of a table in front of the people sat in the room I had a great view, first the people that entered the room spoke for a while, They spoke mainly about the book of Mormon and how important it was to read it every day.

soon enough it was the Apostles time to speak, he stood up and began to speak and I listened to what he had to say , he talked about what he had done before in his life, He said to all the new members in the room that at some point in the church some one will say something that we may not like but who's fault is it that we get offended he asked. and he then said that it is our self's that choose to be offended when we hear something we don't like and we have the power to not let things offend us .

He also spoke about how the spirit can guide us and that sometimes we may not even realize that it's the spirit guiding us until the reasons are reveled to us.
he said so many great things and I listened intently to every word.

After he had finished his talk the room emptied and only a few people were in the room. I stood up to leave and I saw Elder David Bednar (Apostle) stood at the table with his suitcase, I really wanted to say high to him so I walked over to where he was and he looked up and gave me a big smile and He said " One second there I Just got to clean my hands" then he held his hand out and I shook his hand. I couldn't believe it I was stood shaking the hand of one of the twelve apostles.

He asked me my name and I told him who I was and thanked him for all that he had done and his great speech that he had given . he said it was a pleasure and he was very happy to meet me.
We talked for about 5 minutes on different subjects and I told him about how I plan to go see my Jenn in October and baptize her. He wished me all the best and then he had to go but it was great to talk to him.

he Really is a great guy and I am honored to have spoken to him.
and I am so grateful for that opportunity

Small cat diary

Invasion attempt.

over the last few weeks there has been a visitor at the rear window of the house, a unwelcome visitor, a invader of privacy for our five little cat's.

this invader comes in the form of a male cat and we think he likes Daisy. He always comes to the window at the same time and Daisy is always there when he appears at the window.
The second he appears all you can hear is hissing and growling from Daisy.

the last time he came to the window Sugar heard the commotion and came running to the window,

He soon changed his tune once sugar was there, she didn't even have to hiss at him.

just seconds after this video he took off running, sugar is the alpha cat and even though she may attack the others when they go near her or her food she is the first one to protect them when strangers come to the window. Good old sugar.

My first sacrament blessing

To day was such a wonderful day for me, I did my first sacrament blessing, but how ever it was a bit more sudden than expected. About 4 months ago my bishop asked me to perform the sacrament blessing, every week since then I have ment to do the blessing but have often had to leave early because of my work. I was worried that bishop had forgotten about deal we had made in the past, well not so much of a deal but more of a arrangement. The arrangement is that When I go to See my beautiful Jenn I am going to baptize her, but first Bishop wants me to use my priesthood power here first in other words perform the sacrament blessing and then he will give me permission to perform the baptism. So quite naturally I wanted to do the sacrament blessing, and I know that time was running out , so I said to bishop "Hey Bishop can I do the sacrament ?" and he said " Yeah sure". I was just thinking that I had at least a week to prepare my self so I could relax for this week, just as I was about to say those very words to my mother Bishop said "you can do the blessing today".

I felt my heart jump in to my throat, talk about been put on the spot . I now had just a hour to prepare my self , I felt that all familiar nervous feeling take a hold and all of a sudden I couldn't seem to concentrate. and before I knew it the time had come for the sacrament meeting, I sat up on the front of the chapel and looked at the crowd looking at me. I had a good help from the two boys one called Donald and I can't remember the other boys name, but the walked me through what I had to do and showed me the script that I had to read from. the time came for me to do my part of the blessing, I was so nervous but I just kept thinking about how doing this would enable me to be able to baptize my Jenn. I was to bless the water I had to say the words perfectly or say the entire script again. So I bent down on one knee and began to read the water blessing to the entire church, I had go about half way through what I was reading and I said one of the words wrong so I had to start from the beginning of that paragraph. I began to read it again, I could feel my breath running short, I didn't want to mess up and I dare not stop to draw breath. I managed to read it all perfect this time round. I was so happy that I had got it right. I plan to do another sacrament before I leave to be with My Jenn. so that was quite a adventure for today and a experience I shall never forget.

A poem for my beautiful Jenn.

Been with my Jenn is my world of dreams come true,
to hold her in my arms and look in to her beautiful eyes of blue.

To walk with My Jenn to our favorite places and hold her hand so tight,
and talk with her past the midnight hour and through till mornings first light.

To hear her sweet voice and her laugh fills me with delight,
My Jenn really is so beautiful and I want to be with her for the rest of my life.

She truly is my everything and so perfect in ever way
I want to be with her every second of ever minute of every hour of every day.

I want to grow old with her and marry her and have her as my wife,
and be happy every single day for the rest of my life.

I love you my beautiful Jenn and I need you every day,
it wont be to long now my love and I will be on my way.

We will do all the things we love to do,
and the reason that makes all the places we go so special is because I go there with you.

I love you

Small cat diary

I have decided to make a diary for the five cats in the house, I probably won't make a entry in this diary to often.

It seems that at the moment all five of them are doing things that will keep me writing for a while at least.

Some weeks I will include pictures or even video's of them in and their activity's

So here is a reminder of who is who

This is Sophie the oldest of the five, she likes to be the mother figure amongst them.

This one is called Sugar, she is the boss the alpha cat, she keeps them all in line and protects them from all those male cats.

This is Daisy, possibly the most clumsy cat in the world. She is the only cat I have ever known to fall over while she is laid down.

This little fire ball is called Polly, she is the mischievous one, the wind up merchant. Sh isn't afraid of anyone or anything, she would stand up to king Kong.

And finally, Melissa. She is sister to Polly and seems to think she is a house maid. she drags any dirty laundry from the wash basket and brings it down to the washing machine.

Well there you have it, all five cats each one we love very much.

today Melissa and Polly were busy cleaning each other when without warning they started to fight, I cant say who started it but they were really going at each other. I don't like it when they fight so I tried to stop it and just look at the evil look they gave me for trying to stop them.

That's the last time I disturb them , I thought they were gonna kill me. I guess I should never interfere with sisters fighting

My I Q test results

I decided I would take a I,Q Test I have always wanted to do this but have always been worried about what my result would be. so here it is this is my result.

Free IQ Test
Free-IQTest.net - Free IQ Test

Well there it is, I have a I,Q of 128

give it a go see how you doo

as time draws near

just a little over two months now and I will be off to see my beautiful Jenn.
Already I can hardly contain my excitement.
I am now in the process of saving as much as I can to spend on my Jenn, everything els is set.

This is everything I work towards, all year round and the time I spend with my Jenn is the best time of my life. I always find that I worry a lot about the details of the trip.

I sometimes even dream about it, I have dreams where I get to the airport and I forgot something or I dream that I miss my flight, or I have even had dreams where I am the pilot of the plane.

I think I dream these things because I think so much about them all day. I am the kind of person who likes to keep on top of everything I do and things that concern me, I like to keep a constant check on the things that are important to me.

Jenn is the most important thing in the world to me and I worry a lot that something would go wrong with the bookings or a flight delay that would hamper my getting to be with her.

I'm sure that everything will go just fine and I will be with my Jenn really soon.

do I just worry to much about these things am I just been paranoid?

are we to pressured to buy?

I have noticed lately the amount of pressure that is placed on the customer to buy products.

Weather it be a chocolate bar or the latest games console it seems that there is a certain amount of pressure to buy these things that is placed on the customer by the store that they are in.
Even at home. there are none stop advertisements to buy products.

perhaps it's just me but I have noticed the increase in toy advertisements now that Christmas is only
123 days away or to make it sound more closer
3 months and 6 days away.

and it will only get worse as it gets closer.
and I even noticed that the advertisements fall around the same time as the kids are coming home from school.

Maybe that's why Christmas doesn't feel so much like Christmas anymore, because it's all about money.
all about how much the company can make. I remember years ago when all I wanted is my family. that hasn't really changed I still hold that value very close to my heart.
but the thing I would love more than anything is to be with My beautiful Jenn for Christmas,
that for me would be the best gift I could ever ask for

Life in the palm of my hand

I have never held a life in the the palm of my hand until today.
To have some one put their life in the palm of my hand.
to not know me and yet trust me with their life.
I ask you is there a better gift in the world than the gift of love and trust?

Even if it is from such a small life.
This is muffin mine and Jenn's new little adopted baby

Tell a joke Tuesday

Welcome to TELL A JOKE TUESDAY were you can tell your jokes or funny stories and make the world laugh.

Here are my jokes and funny stuff for this week.

A couple took their young son to the circus and when the elephants appeared, the boy seemed very intrigued by them.

"Mommy, what's that long thing on the elephant?" he asked.

"That's the elephant's trunk, dear," she replied.

"No, not that. What's that long thing that's hanging between the elephant's legs?" asked the boy.

Embarrassed, the mother replied, "Oh, it's nothing, son." She then left to get some hot dogs and sodas.

While she was gone, the young boy turned to his father and asked, "Daddy, what's that long thing hanging between the elephant's legs?"

"That's the elephant's penis, son," explained the father.

"Well, why did mommy say it was nothing when I asked her?" the boy asked.

Taking a deep breath, the father proudly replied, "I've spoiled that woman, son!"

Please feel free to take part in my tell a joke tuesday

Wayne;s severe storm watch update

TC Activity

seems that there has been a rather sudden change in the weather, Tropical storm Claudette appeared from nowhere and is now heading through Atlanta towards Tennessee. Ana is now on a course straight for Florida and then on through Georgia. Bill is now a Hurricane and I think that he is going to miss America completely and do a kind of a u turn and head back out to the Atlantic and die. I will update again on Wednesday

Wayne;s severe storm watch

I am at present tracking two tropical storms,
They are both out in the Atlantic ocean and are almost hurricane strength.

Tropical storm Ana is leading the way and gathering strength.
I think she may develop in to a Hurricane.
if she carried on on her present course she will hit hit Cuba by Wednesday and some time on Thursday will skim the Florida coast and head in to the Mexican gulf. I will give a update on Ana on Monday.

The second of the tropical storms Bill is following Ana and is as strong as Ana.
If Bill continues on his current path he will hit Florida or Carolina or Georgia roughly on Sunday of next week. I will update on Monday.

Photo Friday

Hi all and welcome to my Photo Friday for this week.

In England we have a tradition that on the 11th day on the 11th hour of the 11th month we remember those who fought and died for their country in the two major wars of this world and the smaller conflicts some of witch are still on going.
We remember the brave heroes and what they gave up for us. they gave their today so that we may have our tomorrow.

and how do we honor them? with a poppy, a small flower that grows wild
I thought about this a lot when I was walking and saw a field full of them.

I really do feel sorry for all the lives that have been lost, all those people we lost and all because the people in charge are to ignorant to try and come to some kind of understanding, they have no respect for life and it is the people who are left behind that pickup the pieces.

It is these people that give there lives and see horrors that no person should ever have to see . they are heroes but at what price and who will pay the price of putting their lives back together after the horror that they have witnessed.

they pay such a price so that we can stay safe at home and I am eternaly greatful to every single one of them who fight for our freedom.

I just wish that the wars had never happend in the first place I wish they could all come home. we are human beings and we are better than this. I'm sorry its just the way I feel

boss wars

A long long time a go in a galaxy far far away

record scratch,,,, back to reality

This is quite a complicated story so bear with me and I will try to tell it as best I can.
I have worked at my store now for nearly ten years and for as long as I have worked there my boss has worked there, she had worked there for years before I worked there, in fact you could say that this job is her life.

about two years ago our store was forced to re locate after the company had bought 29 new locations and rather than have our store so close to another store, they consolidated the two stores in to one.

We quickly settled in to the new location and my boss got to work sorting out all the paper work and loose ends from the new stores old files and business transactions. she finally got everything up to speed about a half a year ago. and that's when they lowed the boom.

She received word that the company thought that she would be be better placed at another store because she wasn't performing up to standards at the store she was at. This sent her in to a rage as you can imagine and for the next few weeks she became a nervous wreck.

soon after the full store emerges that the manager from that store is going to come and take over at our store. I had worked with that manager before and I remember him seeming to be a spoilt person and very stuck up, I got the impression he was the district managers favorite and he knew it but I would soon learn my lesson for been so judgemental.

My boss fought against the decision with every thing she had even going to a solicitor and citizens advice , but unfortunately for her she was denied against her fight to stay so then she appealed against that decision still to no avail.

she was bitter against what had happened to her and she was looking to put the blame on anything at this point, she even went as far as to put in a claim of sexual discrimination, claiming that it was just to dangerous for her to go home at such a late hour from so far away. also that the district manager wanted only men running his stores. Again it was no use the decision had been made and she would have to move.

she soon seemed to have a resentment for the new manager saying he would look for any excuse to give us warnings and get rid of us and that he was looking to hire all the staff from his old store and replace us with them. With what I remember oh him the idea of what she said was a strong possibility. I was worried that things were going to spiral out of control my boss who had hired me was falling from grace because of her resentment for what had happened to her. she was angry and I think if I was in the same position as she was then I wouldn't be to happy about it either, but I like to think that I would be more graceful about it, that I would rise above the situation buy going to the other store and doing the best I can and making such a impact on the store that everybody would see just how versatile I am at what I do and that I can do it well.

My boss has been on holiday for this last week, she leaves on the 17th of this month and for the first time the other day I got to speak to the new boss. I was amazed by the fact that he was not the stuck up all about me me me kind of person that I remember anymore, he was now a mature and responsible person who spoke to me like a person not a number and respected my opinion and had a good sense of humour. He also listened to my ideas and seemed to want to act on them we had a good talk and I must admit I like him. I think he will make a great boss, I hope anyway.

Now the main problem is that my boss is back from holiday and in a few hours from now I will be working with them both because we have to do a inventory and with him taking over next week he is going to be there, so it's going to be me my present boss and him all alone in the store together. while I'm sure that everything will be ok there is a part of me that is thinking it will be all out war and I will be stuck in the middle.

My beautiful Jenn said "Just keep your self to your self don't pick sides and just do your work"
I plan to do just that and I hope that nothing bad happens like a boss war.

I felt so bad

First let me say that over the past couple of week I have had a writers block and haven't really been able to think of things to write, well not that I have nothing to write, it was just I didn't really know how to write about it.

So today I am attempting to break out of my writers block and come out all guns blazing as the saying goes.

OOOOOOOk here goes.

As my title says I felt really bad the other day, I go to church as often as I can and the Elders always make me feel so welcome and I have become real good friends with them both so I suggested we go play football some time, I thought they could be more them selves and have some fun at the same time.

So we went to a local park, I took my Wilson NFL ball and the Elders brought their soccer ball. We started with playing some American Football we stood in a triangle and threw the ball to each other, every thing was going well.

We switched to the soccer ball. I have never been to good at soccer. you could say m aim when I kick the ball is not to good. I decided to make a net and I went as the goal keeper first and the rules was that the Elders would play and the first to score a go in as goal keeper so they could rest.

Elder Surban scored a goal so he became the goal keeper and I went out on the pitch with Elder Deberry.

Elder Surban kicked the ball on to the pitch and I got the ball I ran up to elder Deberry with the ball and made a excellent move I kicked the ball straight through his legs and shot at goal but elder Surban stoped the goal. he kicked the ball back on to the pitch and I ran and collected the ball and started back towards goal.

between me and the goal stood Elder Deberry. after moving so well last time I figured I could easily get past him again. but wait surly it would be more of a surprise if I shot for goal from where I was which was the middle of the pitch, Elder Deberry was stood about ten yards directly in front of me.

I aw a opening to the right of him just enough for me to boot the ball as hard as I could and possibly score a goal. I pulled my leg back and kicked the ball as hard as I could. I sent the ball hurtling.

but as soon as the ball left my foot I saw it's trajectory. To my horror it flew and hit Elder Deberry straight in the face, sending his head back and making him yell out in pain.
I instantly felt the worst guilt come over me. I ran up to him to see if he was ok, he was holding his nose.

after a minute he let go of his nose and I asked him if he was ok, he said yeah I'm fine. I apologised and said how bad I felt and he said "that's ok I know you didn't mean to".

I was so happy he was ok and later that evening the Elders came by my house and we all shared a pizza.

A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party.

Their conversation was constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice.

After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, "What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when you're out of the office?"

"I give it to them," replied the lawyer, "and then I send them a bill."

The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try.

The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills.

When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer

it's so wrong in my eyes

I was at work the other day and I must admit I was a bit shall we say angry at a customer.
The woman in question had three children, they were only young I would say the oldest one was about 9 years old.

She came to the counter and was asking my advice on games, She asked me about a game called Getaway. I said "it is a very violent game and deals with adult theme that's why it has a 18 rating, I would not recommend you get this game for them, in fact I would strongly recommend you don't!"

She said "is it worse than Grand theft auto?" I said " Yes I would say it is"
She then said that they play games like that all the time.
I could feel my self getting annoyed with her, what was she thinking?

I then said to her "This game is a 18 rated game which means it has violence and offensive language in it, it may also have sexual scenes in it also"
She gave me a look as if to say I don't really care.

by now the kids where pestering the lady and I could see her thinking I just want to get the game to keep them quiet.
I then said to her " I really think it would be unwise to get them this game, it would be like putting a 18 rated movie on and letting them watch it"

after all my pleading with the customer not to subject the kids to the game, she said "oh I'll get it for them, if they start swearing I'll just turn down the volume"

I said "but its visual also"
She said, "oh they will be fine they have seen worse"

there was nothing I could really do, I had to sell her the game but believe me I wanted so badly to refuse her.

and as she was leaving the store she turned to me and said "I am not a bad mother"

I don't think she was a bad mother, her kids seemed to love her. I just think that it's not right that there is no law saying you can't buy a game/ movie that's a 18 for someone younger than that age.

Tell a joke Tuesday

Welcome to TELL A JOKE TUESDAY were you can tell your jokes or funny stories and make the world laugh.

Here are my jokes and funny stuff for this week.

A blonde, wanting to earn some money, decided to hire herself out as a handyman-type and started canvassing a wealthy neighborhood. She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any jobs for her to do.

"Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?"
The blonde said, "How about 50 dollars?" The man agreed and told her that the paint and ladders that she might need were in the garage. The man's wife, inside the house, heard the conversation and said to her husband, "Does she realize that the porch goes all the way around the house?"
The man replied, "She should. She was standing on the porch."

A short time later, the blonde came to the door to collect her money.
"You're finished already?" he asked. "Yes," the blonde answered, "and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats. "Impressed, the man reached in his pocket for the $50. "And by the way," the blonde added, "that's not a Porch, it's a Ferrari."

Signs That You're Broke At communion you go back for seconds.
