Hi Guys

Well May has certainly gone quick, with a few things of interest happening, as most of the time I’ve been at work.

The weather has been weird should of been warmer, though shouldn’t really complain as both bank holidays have been beautiful.

Right what have I been up to;

Well at the beginning of the month I was given the job of looking after a bearded dragon, and  I will be looking after her for a few months, her name is Brody, and she’s such a cutie. She’s fed on mostly dark leafy greens with the occasional locust and wax worm – which are alive and wiggle and jump around lots.

I’ve been for a number of cycle rides, mostly short rides of 7.5-9 miles, the longest being 32 miles (this also included some steep evil hills) I’m sure it will get easier as I do them more often. Some of my rides have been with friends, but most of them have been solo rides.

I’m still doing my body pump, and still enjoying it 🙂

I’ve been helping out at Messy Church and youth club – these have been going for a while and will be on going, through the year. The village have just re-started Ignite – the christian youth club, lets see how well this goes and how many youngsters come along.

The bank holidays have been filled with house work, gardening and of course cycle rides.

Tonight I’m going to see what being a street pastor/prayer support volunteer is all about. At least the weather is nice with the sun shining and blue skies. Will let you know later.

I’m sure there are other things that have happened, but can’t remember them off the top of my head. Though if I remember I’ll shall blog about them.

I’d better be off as I’m leaving in a few minutes.

Take Care & God Bless


Update on Things

Hi guys

A few things have happened over the last couple of months, nothing particularly exciting mind you, but not totally boring either.

The week before Christmas I went to a couple of social functions;
On the 18th December – after doing body pump – I went to see Belshazzers Feast at the Thomas Hughes Memorial Hall in Uffington, they are well worth going to see, very funny banter inbetween songs :).
A few days later I went to the New Theatre in Oxford with the local youth club to see Starlight Express 🙂 I didn’t know what the story was about before going, or what to expect, but I thought it was pretty cool and is very worth going to see.

The Sunday before Christmas was the village carol service, which as always is well attended and has very community feel to it.

Christmas itself was a quiet one for me, just chilling out and not having to worry about anything really. New Year was kinda the same, though I did come down with a bad cold which lasted about 2 1/2 weeks or so.

I’ve done a lot of tidying up of the house – there is still lots to do before I’m happy with how things are, but trying to get my parents to do their bit is a struggle :/

I went for a short cycle ride at the beginning of January – only 7.5-8 miles – first time of the year and first time in 2 months. The weather hasn’t been kind for most part so far – with wind, rain, snow –  so haven’t ventured out since, but have been going to body pump and having a go on my rowing machine.

Last weekend I went to the Bike Show at the Excel Centre in London with my best mate; it was pretty cool; and I brought myself a couple of jerseys too 🙂

Yesterday I got the writing part done on my angel tattoo; it’s now complete and is looking good 🙂 Now on to thinking of some other design ideas.

My race car is coming along nicely for the new season; it’s now a little black number, still a MG ZR but with an 1800 engine 🙂 I just hope I can race it and have some fabulous results.

On to some not so good news, I’m in a difficult period at work at the moment, with redundancies coming, so have been trying to see what else is around, but hoping that I’m not going to be one of the ones leaving 😦

Well I think that’s all the news for the time being folks. I know I say this a lot but I will try and write more often, when things happen, or are coming up.

So for now Take Care & God Bless


A Different View…


Just a quick post.

Next week I’m going to France (again) but this time for work purposes. I was offered a chance to go to one of the Crown Packagaing factories for a few days, to see what goes on and experience a different side to things. It should interesting in some ways but I’m sure there will be times when I’m going to be pretty bored.

With going to France next week I’ll be missing my body pump session on Tuesday 😦 – I’m just going to have to work a bit harder when I can fit in some exercise to make up for it.

On Thursday the Uffington Youth Club started up again after the summer holidays – it was our 1st birthday (of the new reformed youth club) 🙂 so that was kinda cool.

That’s it for now

Take Care & God Bless


Fun at Youth Club


Just got back from youth club, and have come back with some extra artwork (temporary tattoos) – 1 on my left arm, and 2 on my face, I had both hands painted – 1 with a black & ble heart; the other with a glittery skeleton design – but I washed them before I came home. I didn’t get any photos of the artwork, bit of a shame but hey, and a pink bow tied to my top. The things we adults have to do; no its all good fun and we have a laugh. Not too bad for a few hours out the house.

Youth work can be so much fun 🙂 well it is a pretty chilled out place to be and allows children (and adults) to relax and just have fun, without any pressures. 🙂

Well I think I will go get myself a nice hot chocolate and chill in front of the TV for awhile before going to bed. Back to work tomorrow, then a nice 4 day weekend 🙂

Take Care & Relax
