A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

More of me

What’s to about, about me?

Orphaned in 2011 at 49, one of 8 children.

Fervent Crystal Palace F.C. supporter.

English, born in Catford, London England, made some money c/- Maggie Thatcher and a property surge, left the UK at the beginning of the poll tax fiasco and came to New Zealand in 1988, the year of Cyclone Bola, never left.

I was told that it never rained here! But it was love and I didn’t think to check.

Living the dream then – Married with 2 children and a cat that scares itself. Updated to two cats now, the one that scares itself is now still scared but has company if she chooses. She never chooses.

Also I feed the local Fauna from a couple of bird feeder devices. Torture for the cats.

I Take bad pictures with one of two cameras.

I like gadgets but baulks at paying the early adopter price. – I have in my collection  a mini-disc player, the major downfall of which was that you had to record information to the disk and not just drag drop and copy, so that a one hour mini-disc recording took one hour.

I’ve upgrade from the previous collection of  two I-pod touch devices and an iPod mini in the car, to a more manageable  iPad , iPod Touch for the music, and a Macbook Air. Oh and a newish iPhone. I need counselling.

The MacBook Air is purely because it’s a work of art, and I only use it for writing this blog, badly.

I don’t usually frown when drinking beer, this one made me a bit less than happy, but as you can see I can do all the emotions.

    That is a very nice hat you have there. I hope you haven’t lost it.

      I have a box of twelve, all nicely wrapped like large cigars, I limit myself to one a month. I’m never sure what colour the next one will be, it’s always a surprise, along with the little firecracker bang. They also come with a small lint collector token that I keep in my piocket, I’ve had Fish, Spoons, little eye glasses, a skeleton. So much fun!

      I have had beer from Japan, it’s available in some places over here, I’m sure it’s not scratching the surface though.
