Ask Me A Question?

I really donít know what is wrong with me since discovering Yahoo Pool that is all I seem to be doing now just trying to get my ranking up and not having much success. Well Easter Sunday is nearly over and not done a great deal today I did deliver my Easter eggs out to friends and family and this afternoon I ended up watching Jesus Of Nazareth with Robert Powell - well canít get a better programme for this time of year.

Well Lent is finally over and I can once again eat chocolate so looking forward to eating the egg I had off Kath might not wolf it all tonight as that would just be greedy.

It has been brought to my attention that some people visit the site and donít want to leave a comment or are unsure what to say well Fox, Verity and Emma you can leave whatever comment you want.

Well work tomorrow and thanks to the warning off Mole I shall try my best not to badmouth my fellow work colleagues in fear that they may sue me for slander!

Hope everyone had a great EasterÖ

I spent way too long online last night playing Yahoo Pool and was shocked when I finally left at gone 10pm, (blame Kath for that! Oh well I had fun but my ranking is not that great

Today is Good Friday and I wonder how many readers know what is so special about this day Ė well I shall do my best to educate you. The Friday before Easter is commonly referred to as Good Friday and this is the date of the crucifixion, where Easter Monday is the day that Jesus rose from the grave.

Of course now many people only look at Easter as a time for eating chocolate eggs but I wonder how many of you know where this custom originates from, well Iíll tell you anywayÖ

Many different stories behind the origin of the egg at Easter some pre-Christian cultures believed that the egg was a sign of fertility or new life and to receive one was a good omen. Another story says that during Lent it was forbidden to eat eggs so at the end of this period people would give each other eggs.

From Sunday I shall once more be able to eat chocolate, I will admit that it has been difficult at times not to eat chocolate and avoid temptation but seem to have done it.

Ask Me A Question?

Been a very quiet couple of days at work and I have been using that time to plan my future and get things sorted out. I was talking to Kevin at work on Monday night and he was telling me that he regretted not choosing a different career path to follow as a young man and he had a fair point. My biggest fear has always been that I would leave one job for another and fail at that job and end up unemployed with no money, I think that is what spurred me to work out my finances on Monday night. I am however trying to keep this to the back of my mind for the time being to avoid thinking that I am stuck in a rut.

Well spent the night watching television last night, BBC were showing an interesting programme last night about a body which had been discovered in 1991 in the Alps which was frozen there for 5300 years. The program The Iceman Murder looked at three different scenarios to explain his life and his death.

I also started reading a new book last night Just a Boy by Richard McCann, whoís mother was murdered by the Yorkshire ripper when he was just a small child. The book tells the story of these years and although not the sort of book I would normally read but one that I want to read.

Congratulations to Kath for getting a distinction in her word processing exam, of course instead of just telling me the good news she tells me that she failed the exam by miles, I should have smelt a rat as I was pretty sure she would have passed the exam even if it was just a pass and not a distinction. So well done.

Crafty cow, I have a long memory so I will get you back one day and it will be a cracker you mark my words.

Ask Me A Question?

I feel much more positive about things than I did on Sunday and that is what I really hate that at times I can let myself get that low and that depressed and the next moment I am back to normal. I am only glad that the ďnegative twinĒ of my personality very rarely shows its face preferring to work in harmony with the positive side of my personality giving a generally balanced view on things. Heck better shut up now sounding like a right crazy fool - as Mr T of the A-Team might say.

Worked the late night yesterday so no time to go online, or rather I decided not to go up my mothers after work as I donít think it is very fair that I go up there so late just to use the computer doing that means I tend to skip meals or eat very late and after skipping meals while I was off holiday I donít really want to go there again.

Instead I worked on my computer at home and have started to sort out my finances, I say sort them out I used to be pretty good when it came to money but ever since I started working full time I have become complacent and I should not have let this happen fair enough I have never gone overdrawn but I seem unable to save and I know I will never be able to make changes in my life if I am unable to do the smallest things.

Said ages ago that I would not talk about work on the site and when I do I feel that I am breaking a promise but only going to say that it has been pretty quiet the last couple of weeks and joy of joy the manager was off sick yesterday, I know I should not say that as I will have to face her at some point but later rather than sooner I think (lol)

Will have to remember to wrap the presents I have for my youngest brother Josh I still find it hard to believe that he is nine this week it seems only a short while ago that I was nursing him as a baby. That reminds me of a teddy bear he had when he was younger that when you hugged the bear it would sing a little song and its cheeks would light up, would you believe he still has that teddy the battery is long dead but whenever I see it I canít help but pick it up and chase after Josh singing the song which went something like this ďNow itís time to go to sleep, cuddle up with meĒ

Enough trips down memory lane for today but I really will have to get some replacement batteries for that teddy.

Flu bug is still doing the rounds so hope that Christine is feeling better soon, poor thing wonít be able to eat any Easter eggs if she is still ill

Well I shall stop rambling on for the time being,

I really donít know what happens to me every so often I really should keep a note of when these ďblackĒ moments sweep over me. I think I get so low and everything seems so difficult that it spirals out of control. I have no reason to complain that my life is bad as it is not, I may dislike my job but I have one, I may not like where I live but at least I have a roof over my head and most importantly I have friends so I am not a lost cause and can achieve anything if I so want it.

Looked at some jobs online but nothing took my fancy but I think some of that maybe down to fear of giving up one job and not lasting in any new one.

I spent the afternoon clearing out my car, not done a fantastic job but managed to sort it out a little so that it does not look as cluttered as it has in the past also checked under the bonnet.

Well that was just a quick entryÖ

Ta ra until I post again.

Ask Me A Question?

I did decide to go straight home after work yesterday as I was feeling very down hearted after work and knew if I went up my mothers I would end up spending most of the evening sat in front of the computer. So instead I went home and sat in front of the television. Oh what a life I lead. As it happens I fell asleep before 10pm and only woke up briefly to switch the television off before going back to sleep.

Been back in work one day and already I have a day off I really donít know what is going on in that place but it seems that this was my Sunday to have off so regardless that I have been off for the last two Sundays I was not needed today and with Easter Sunday next week and the shop closed I will have a very poor pay at the end of April which is a tad annoying to say the least.

I really must become more pro-active and do what I say I will as yesterday in work I realised that this was not the place for me, not anymore but I have the problem that I have no idea what I would really want to do, it churns me up inside knowing that I am drifting though life with no real goals. Whatever happened to my ambition?

That is why I really wanted to do this ECDL course I could have at least felt that I was changing the direction of my life, Kath has the right idea she knows what she wants to do and she is working towards that aim and yes she hates her job but she is working towards changing things and she will but I just see myself going around in circles.

They say there is nothing to fear but fear itself and yes they are right I am scared of leaving what has become my safety zone. However sometimes in life you have to take a gamble. I finally started to complete the application form to go on the local housing register there is a long waiting list so I canít expect anything to happen over night and really should think about renting somewhere but I shall have to see about that.

Ask Me A Question?

Sorry for not posting anything yesterday as I was way to busy living my life instead of being stuck in front of a computer screen, and no offence I would rather be with my friends that sitting here alone so I popped up to Llanelli with Kath and Chloe and stayed for dinner, (sure there trying to fatten me up but really not much meat on me just flab) which was great but that is not my idea of a small meal. It really was a struggle to eat everything on the plate but it would have been rude to have wasted any after Christine (Kathís mum) had gone to all the trouble of cooking it. Then watched The Incredibles on DVD, I am going to have to get that before long, lets see what my finances are like at the end of April.

I canít believe that I have managed to not buy a DVD since just after Christmas - now that has got to be a record for me (lol)

Last day of my holiday and I hate that feeling that I will have to get up and go back to work tomorrow even if I have been bored over the last two weeks now it is time to go back I really donít want to which is a sure sign that I am in the wrong job.

I did enter a competition to win a Knight Rider car and if I happen to win I think I will jack my job in and become a crime fighter. One man can make a differenceÖ


...especially with a car like that. (and yes Kieran I am hoping it would have the voice chip in as well so you can save your voice for singing.

Tonight I have been looking after my brothers while my parents go to some concert, I say looking after them but in reality all I am doing is sitting on the computer while they go about doing whatever they are doing. I spoke about this the other day and really should try and make more time for them and not visit my mothers purely to use the internet.

Did get my brother Josh a birthday card and present today, I hate buying cards and have been into countless card shops today looking at hundreds of cards and not being sure which one to get! I did make a decision and got a card just hope he likes it now.

I did something rather silly tonight when I was warming my dinner up I realised that I had left the spoon in the microwave, boy did I run and got there before there were all sparks and explosions.

There is so many Easter eggs about and as I was reminded yesterday Lent will soon be over so I can eat chocolate so I got some eggs for my brothers today and will have to resist the urge to open them and stuff them all myself - self control Lee, self control.

Oh yes why is it women have products made for them that smell delicious but any skin care products for men are odour free I think something needs to be said about this.

Back in work on Saturday at least the manager will be off to watch the rugby so I wonít have to put up with her on my first day back, I do wonder how busy it has been and if I am honest I wonder how many sales have been put in my name. The last few weeks have been pretty quiet so I would assume that there would be none, I said I was not going to talk about work so I shall stop.

Boogeyman was not a bad film, sure it was not the best film I have ever seen but it had a few parts that made you jump and I am happy to say that I was not the only one to jump both Kath and Kieran jumped as well. Have to admit I did not like the ending of the film but thatís just me. I think you ask any one and they would admit to being scared of the Boogeyman when they were younger, I think all kids go though the stage of being afraid of shadows and we all need a reassuring word or hug from our parents to ease our minds. See this film but make sure you check your wardrobes before you go to bed.

Not been to the gym since Monday as Dean has been ill and it looks like Christopher will be cancelling his membership so I only have three more free visits to the gym before I either stop going, pay when I go or become a member paying monthly. I want to see how I cope with going when I am back in work the last thing I want to do is set up a direct debit and find that I am wasting money as I am not going enough because I am tired after work. Weíll see what happens in April.

You can tell when you have had enough time off work, you canít wait to get back but I donít really want to return to work on Saturday I am just bored out of my head and I guess that I have no one to blame but myself. I took this holiday because I had to not because I wanted to and as I had nine days which needed to be taken before the end of March otherwise they would be lost and as Easter is early this year it was a mad rush for everyone to get there holidays in.
I did eat yesterday even though I did not feel like anything I knew that it was just my mind telling my body that I was not hungry but I managed to eat something all the same and am almost finished with the cleaning of my room. It is amazing how just moving things around can make the place feel completely different.

It occurred to me last night that I let the internet control my life when I should be the one in control of it, for most of my time off I have found myself sitting in front of the screen checking emails and updating my sites surely there must be more to life than this. My youngest brother Josh will be nine next week and I wonder where the time has gone, yes I see him most days when I go to my mothers but I donít really spend anytime with him or any of my other brothers for that matter, I just donít feel like a good big brother

Off to the cinema tonight with Kath and Kieran to see Boogeyman only a 15 certificate so hope that it will be scarier than Hide & Seek was last week.

I have just been to the recycle bank with yet more carrier bags of magazines and the amount I have already thrown out has only just scratched the surface of my collection but my room is looking more organised which was the original aim all I need to do now is make sure that the clutter does not start to acuminate again, I am thinking

I was at the gym again last night and bumped in to Graham from school who was telling me that he has had enough of Carmarthen and was moving to Bristol at the weekend, he is not someone I would call a good buddy as I only knew him from the business course at school but it was nice to have someone to talk while I was on the exercise bikes. Something Kath said to me last night really struck a cord with me and got me thinking about why I wanted to lose weight as I have been rather silly and have been skipping meals in order to bring my weight down quicker and of course that is not the right way to do it. As she said do I value my looks over my health?

So not going to be so silly when it comes to losing weight all I need to do is watch what I eat and not skips meals as that will only lead to illness. I have also stopped using the ďwalk-o-meterĒ as I felt it was starting to take over my life as I was constantly looking at it to see how many steps I had done and that scares me so no more of that.

Was up at 8.30 this morning and out by 9 to get my hair cut, I like going this early as I can just walk straight into the hairdressers and not have to wait so was there first had my mop chopped back. I was going to clean out my car this afternoon but the rain has put a bit of a dampener on that so not sure what I will do with the rest of my day.

Ask Me A Question?

The final week of my holiday and I still have no real idea of what I am going to do with the rest of the week, yesterday I decided to go for a drive and ended up in Rhossili which is on the Gower so went for a walk along there taking photos, none of them are really awesome but it was a good walk and got me out of the house.


Talking of walking I have recently been wearing a ďwalk-o-meterĒ but not sure if it is working as it should as the results can vary massively depending what sort of trousers I am wearing but then again it was free from the Walkers crisps website so maybe I should not rely on it too much.

I had a shock to find out that between October and December last year I spent £165 on credit for my mobile phone, of course at that time I was using my phone a lot more than I had in previous months.

Decided to start tidying my room last night why I decided last night I have no idea but had a really good clear out with one black bag of clothes going to the clothes bank and two carrier bags of magazines going to the recycle bank and I still have maybe three more bags of magazines to throw out. When I was tidying I found lots of scraps of paper that I had jotted things down on in the past for future reference but of course never use them so they went as well. It felt good but still leaves me with the problem of what to do with the rest of my clutter? I am so sentimental that I never throw anything away which is not a good thing if space is a premium so in future I may have to be even harder

Went to the gym again on Friday night but this time I took things easier and spent most of my time on the exercise bikes and was there for about an hour in all and it was pretty good and felt worthwhile. I was out for most of the day yesterday so did not get the chance to post an entry, I was shown by Kieran how he makes his music and some of the many games that he plays both on and offline. Donít think my mind is made to view 3-D games as they soon made me feel quite giddy.

Not sure how I will spend the rest of the day I donít particularly want to be stuck in front of the computer so will most likely head out for a drive soon, no idea where I will head to but all roads lead somewhere, so lets just hope I donít get lost.

I felt a lot better yesterday only last night did my arm start to ache again but I put that down to spending too long on the phone but it was good to finally speak to Janine on the phone rather than over the internet. It was cold last night and I think I must have spoken to the largest number of people on my phone yesterday first work phoned me then I had a call off Kath and then off Kieran who had managed to get his phone unlocked after messing about with it on Wednesday night.

Did this test the other day and forgot to put it up so you can suffer from it today.

You Have Good Karma

In general, you like to do the right thing when it comes to others.

Your caring personality really shines through.

Sure, you have your moments of weakness - and occasionally act out.

But, all in all, you're karma is good... even with those few dark spots.

How's Your Karma?

I got up today and my arms were fine so think I will chance going to the gym again tonight but donít think I will risk doing anything that puts strain on them but really want to try and go again and get into the habit of going. Not that I will be able to join up any time soon as I just donít have the money, I paid for my television licence yesterday - I say pay I just set up a monthly direct debit to cover the cost. I really will have to sort out my finances before they start spiralling out of control.

Already a week has passed of my holiday and I am getting that feeling of not actually achieving anything, okay this has not been helped by my injury but still I do wonder if I would have found some other excuse to sit in front of the computer for the week. Oh well got another week to try and remedy this situation and am already thinking of visiting a few ruined castles depending on the weather.

There is something inside me that wants to find out what my weight is but I donít really want to go down the road of weighing myself every week as that only leads to depression, I should stick to my original plan and next weigh myself in June. I do however feel that I have been making good progress with my weight loss as I have been cutting back on my food and have avoided eating junk food. Also having trouble getting the fork up to my mouth could have played a small part.

Well I had a better nights sleep last night thankfully but my arms are still playing me up, I was concerned yesterday that I had done some damage that would not just heal itself but I can move my arms more than yesterday with out having this aching pain so fingers crossed they are on the mend, I have taken a bath today to try and help them relax but see what happens tonight as that is when I get the most hassle with the. I do wonder whether it is better to gently exercise my arms or use them as little as possible?

Disappointed with my visit to the college yesterday as the Carmarthen campus had no spaces left on the course I wanted to do during the evenings so I went up to the Llanelli campus to try my luck there, again nothing going as it seems the ECDL course is very popular but I did complete an application form and they said they would send me a letter in August so all is not lost but I had hoped to have made an immediate start something of a new beginning for me oh well just have to wait and see what happens.

Did not think much of Hide and Seek and judging by what Kath and Kieran said neither did they, the film was very slow and what exciting parts were over in a flash. I think Kath summed it up best when she said that all the best bits were in the trailer. Oh well there are plenty more films coming out over the next few weeks.

Not sure what I will do with the rest of my holiday work phoned me today to tell me that they had some free tickets to a local nightclub which is reopening this weekend with an Abba night but donít really see me fit enough to be bouncing around a packed club.

Iím in agony well my arms are anyway a negative effect of my trip to the gym on Monday night but it has not put me off going again I just need to make sure that I donít over do it. Last night trying to get to sleep I felt like ripping my arms off as I was in so much pain. I had hoped that they would have recovered today but they are still just as painful and make doing anything a hassle.

Just when I thought the work on my car was about done the weather played a rather nasty trick on me and just after I had sprayed the lacquer on the wind blew some plastic on to the drying area which of course ruined the finish and I was in no mood to sand it all down and start from scratch so gently tried to repair the effected area and then applied another coat of lacquer so we shall have to see what the finished result looks like. I will post a photo here in a couple of days.

Just want to wish Chelsey a very happy birthday for today. Well I am off to the college later to see about this course I was thinking of doing I decided in the end to go to the local college as my reasons for wanting to go to the Llanelli campus could not be justified and time restraints would make doing the course even harder. Will let you all know how I get on tomorrow as off to the cinema tonight with Kath and Kieran to see Hide & Seek. I have heard some mixed reviews of the film so it will be interesting to see what it is like.

Effected area pre treated

As you can see from the photo above there was only a little amount of rust on the back wheel arch (I have added arrows to illustrate the affected areas) but best to catch these things before they become big problems. At first I washed down the area I was going to work on and left it to dry before I sanded down the old paint to get down to bare metal. As you can see from the photo below there was only a little bit of pitting shown with the yellow arrow. This photo was taken after I had treated the area with rust eater and it did a pretty good job.

Effected area sanded down and treated with rust remover

You can see from the image that I have again highlighted the affected areas and once this was done I was able to use filler to bring the level especially of the pitted area back to normal.

I finally went to the gym last night after telling myself that I would go for weeks but as I am on holiday I had no excuse so went to the gym with my brothers, this way I donít have to pay and have to say that it was hard work but then again no pain no gain. Will most likely go again and see how it goes but am thinking of joining up but at the moment I canít afford the monthly subscription lets wait and see how much money I have left after the Bath weekend and the car having its MOT and insurance. April is an expensive month for me!!
You would expect me to be aching all over but surprisingly it is only my upper arms, which are killing me today.

Did relax last night by watching a DVD, watched Batteries Not Included a good film, think I will take it easy tonight as well watching CSI

Spoken to Emma today which was nice as I have not had much of a chance to catch up with her in recent weeks and she was having problems with her computer and connecting to the internet so not just a problem with my computer. I have no idea what I will do with the rest of my time off I am mostly finished with the car now only waiting for the lacquer to dry now before I lightly blend it all together.

I did not get as much as I had planned done on the car yesterday, I had hoped to have treated the rust, used the filler and applied the primer. I got as far as treating the rust and using the filler but still decided that I would leave the car where it was and walk home. So why did I have to pick such a cold night to do this, I thought my fingers were going to drop off it was so cold but the walk would have done me good and it was only this morning when I walked back up to my mothers that I realised just how unfit I am. I used to walk that route all the time when I did not have a car, yes it was hard back then but felt even worse today so I will have to become less dependant on the car.

Speaking of the car I was annoyed as it was wet this morning but it did clear up this afternoon so I went and finished sanding down the filler, why do I always use so much of that stuff so finally got to the stage when I could apply the primer only to find that I did not have any so another walk down the hill to Motorworld for some primer and back again. Finally got the primer coat onto the car and left it to dry, in an ideal world you are supposed to wait 24 hours before applying the topcoat of colour but time is running out for me on this project so I waited a few hours and then applied the first topcoat. If I was doing a professional job I would have used some more filler to have a completely level surface but pretty confident that it will not be noticeable but will leave the car here again tonight and make sure I cover it before I arrive up here first thing tomorrow to apply the lacquer finish then it will simply be a case of using rubbing compound to blend the new and paint job in with the old.

Off to the gym in a little bit with my brothers so hoping that I can keep up with them, I have wanted to go for sometime but lack the confidence to go on my own so I will use the free passes that they have and see how things work out - no pun intended I assure you.

Got confirmation today that the hotel I wanted to stay at in Bath was fully booked for the time I wanted so had to do another quick search for something else that was close to the city centre but not overly expensive and managed to get something booked so thatís sorted.

Been speaking to Kim today and she did say that she would stop by the site and leave a comment so lets see how well she keeps her word (lol) and I hope that the visit to the dentist went well for Kath I hate having to go to the dentist.

Why do people get cars that they canít afford to drive my brother was telling me about someone he knows with a Skyline and apparently it will only do 9 miles to the gallon, okay it looks a great car and goes fast but this bloke does not have a particularly high paying job which might explain why I saw the car outside his house today.

Well managed to avoid my weekly trip to McDonalds last night, I was however sorely tempted to just go and stuff my face after the day I had at work yesterday, basically I got talking to some customers who were interested in a suite and one of the more expensive ones at that they were also interested in the product protection that we offer but asked for a discount. After speaking to the manager I offered the customer 10% off the cost of the sofa, which equalled £180 and was more than double the amount that we are allowed to discount in store. They also wanted to pay over three years on interest free credit which costs the company another 12% of the total order value but to get the order we agreed. If life were simple they would have realised that they were having a good deal and bought it there and then but decided to look elsewhere. To cut a long story short they came back asked for more discount which the manager gave to them but it was only as I was doing the sale did they tell me that they had decided not to have the product protection as you can imagine I was fuming after spending so much time with them and getting them 15% off and they pull the rug out from underneath me, the only reason they had so much discount was down to the fact that the shop needed the money and more importantly they were having the product protection which is the most profitable item we sell. What I should have done is tell them that the deal was on the proviso that they were purchasing the same goods as discussed but I carried on knowing that the manager would go nuts if they left the shop without buying, as it happens she was nuts that they had screwed us but its not the first time it has happened and I am sure it will not be the last as whenever we need the sales the manager authorises discounts that seem to back fire on us.

No more work talk now as on my holiday and at the moment I am preparing my car for the work I need to do on the rust about the rear wheel arch, I have been doing this job for most of the afternoon and at the moment just waiting for the filler to set before i attempt to put the undercoat on.

Hope everyone has remembered to get there mother a card for tomorrow as Sunday 6th March is Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom, not sure about elsewhere in the world but that is no excuse not to show your mother how much you appreciate them.

Donít like working late on Fridays but at least I am off once I finish work today for close to two weeks just hope that the weather is good as I want to get some work done on the car as well as going out and about really donít want to waste my life by not doing anything anymore.

Quickly went up my mothers last night to check my email and really donít know what is happening but I had a job to find a parking space outside the house. I now this is not an unusual event only on Wednesday I had trouble finding a parking space when I went up to see Kath. I suppose it is to be expected when most households have a car if not two but what annoys me most about the people who park up by my mothers is that some of them own garages or have driveways but donít bother to use them to park there cars instead preferring to park on the road side. This problem is only likely to get worse over time so eventually something will have to be done such as having parking permits which is another expense which enables you to park outside your own house.

Had a good look at the prospectus for part time course last night and there are a few courses that I would not mind doing. I donít know why I am suddenly looking at changing things I think it has something to do with this feeling of being stuck in a rut, I decided not to go to college and on reflection I think it was down to money but also down to the fear I had of failing. I was never great at school, I could do the work but needed reassurances that I was doing the right work once I knew what I was doing I would just plough on and get it done. I feared a lack of support of not having anyone to talk about the work to thatís part of the reason I did not do A level history and economics.

However I know I could do the European Computers Driving Licence (ECDL) and as that old saying goes there is nothing to fear but fear itself.

Listening to music last night and I donít know about you but do you have certain songs that when you hear them you immediately remember a time in your life either a happy or sad time.

Leave comments as to what your favourite songs are when you are either happy or sad?

Ask Me A Question?

It is starting to stay lighter for longer now that it is only a couple of weeks before the clocks go forward to mark the start of British Summer Time and I for one am looking forward to it I hate leaving work when it is dark seems such a waste of an evening.

Well no surprise I was not thanked by Dot for writing those sales up in her name, me doing that would have earned her at least £60 worth of commission and not so much as a thanks, oh well I should not expect stuff like that.

I weighed myself yesterday, as it has been three months since New Years and one of my goals for this year was to lose some weight. If I am honest I have yet to seriously do this so it came as no surprise to discover that instead of losing any weight I had actually put on a pound. It seems that giving up chocolate for Lent has not really helped on the weight loss but then again instead of chocolate I have been stuffing my face with other fatty foods. Maybe I should take a leaf out of Kathís book and stop eating fast foods such as McDonalds, KFC or Burger King these foods are high in salt and I am sure that just by thinking about what I eat and increasing the amount I do I should start to see a reduction in weight. I next plan to weigh myself in another three months so start of June I would hope to see much more of a improvement but only I can do this.

Been thinking for some time about doing a course in the evenings and got to hear about one that sounds pretty interesting so will be going to an open evening next week at one of the local collages. In fact I have to decide which one I was to go to as in Carmarthenshire there are five colleges to pick from there are two in Carmarthen and really I should go to the Pibwrlwyd Campus which is the closest to me but I find myself really wanting to go to the Graig Campus in Llanelli but I donít think my reasons for going there are the best.

Well I am sure to mention here how I get on and what course I decide to do I might find something different when I am at the college.

Ask Me A Question?

It is so cold here and yet the snow has not come, I was hoping that we would get some, as I really wanted to get some photos of snow-covered landscapes. Talking of photos I have added a new gallery to the photo section I still have some work to do on them, as they are a touch to big but they can be view here

Donít know why I have not posted for the last few days but as Fox said to me today I canít let my paying public down, hang on I donít charge so what you on about?

Fighting talk on Sunday and I hate to say it but I am already on the verge of defeat, I really was ready to fight the good fight and not let the people at work walk all over me when it comes to sales so it was rather annoying when I had to do two sales for Dot on Monday, I feel that my time there is coming to an end a little sooner than I had planned but as I said in the letter to Chelsey things happen for a reason and there is not much that can be done about that. Yes I did get that letter finished and posted today a total of fifteen pages!!

Happy Birthday to Martin at ASDA yes it was me who sent you the txt message you crazy fool. Also Sonia was wondering why I have not mentioned her on my site, sorry about that but been busy talking to you.
