race for life - cancer research

A more important blog than the normal drivel

she who must be obeyed is doing the race for life in aid of cancer research

this is a 5km run and as you will agree is for a very good course

she is doing this both for her own wellbeing and to raise money for a worthy cause

so being a worthy cause she needs to raise as much as possible

here is a link to her fundraising page

if you can spare a little or a lot i ask that you give what you can as we all know at least a few people that have been struck with this problem and the more money that is raised the closer they will be to a cure

thankyou for taking the time to read this as it is important

normal drivel will continue on future blogs .....

spring is comming - better late than never

now here is a good photo to start a blog with ....
our lass had spotted this on e-bay and added it to the watch list just in case i wanted to do another project caravan for the summer ....
what do you think - does it have potential ?
no seriously back to spring
we are getting ready for it here and i have invested in a mini green house to put the seedlings in - so hopefully i can grow even more this year
i got the seed trays free from some of the big garden centres i deliver to
they get them in to grow seeds in and when they get bigger they put them in pots and the seed trays get thrown out to recycle
so if you are on a budget or tight like me it could make your gardening cheaper

this is part of the back garden and as you can see spring has sprung and the shoots are shooting
no idea what they are but they grow every year and are blue in colour
i didn't plant them but they are where one of the previous rabbits final resting place is
you know what its like with kids - a dead pet has to go with a full state funeral and lots of gifts are buried with them - i think one of the kids must have put some flowers in

this is the front garden and this is the first of the daffodils coming through
they will be closely followed by the tulips as they usually are so that will be the front sorted again for this year.
a bit of an announcement - its our gills birthday this next week (that british woman) and she will be really old of course so please pass by her blog and pass on your sympathy etc and if you have spare zimmer frames etc that you could pass on to her !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- i am so dead but i am the other side of the pond to her so she will have to wait a while to get me
ps i should really tell you all all the embarrasing stories of our gills mispent youth so please e-mail in for a full book of cringeworthy tales !!!!!!

competition time - results

as promised from last week here are the figures

you will have to let me know if you were any where near

48 hours - 36 minutes driving for the week (six days)

3435km distance travelled

i've had an idea ....

how to raise money for the country - to go towards fixing pot holes and road repairs and such stuff

courtesy cameras on the roads ...

these can be fitted at road works and traffic blackspots to catch out the numpties who cannot and will not get into the correct lane when approaching lane reductions and expect some kind soul to let them in at the last minute because they cannot be bothered to queue like to rest of us

liberty takers like these should be captured , fined and the money raised could be used on the roads to help out the rest of us

rant over ........ nick
