The road to hell is paved with pepperoni

I love pepperoni.  Every Thursday is pizza night, an (admittedly frozen) pizza from the supermarket with extra pepperoni (added by my own fair hands) and extra cheese.  I dread to think how much fat is in it, but hey.  My wife has Salmon and rice while I’m stuffing my face, but that’s her choice and I do cook her some extra bits of pepperoni with cheese on since she likes it.  I don’t want her to feel completely left out….

Writing, Blogging and Blowouts

Well, I’m assuming I still have some readers otherwise this could be a very curious monologue.  Still, I’m still going to write it because it’s important (and you’ll see why later, why it’s so important).  It was 1st December 2012 I made my last post, so nearly twelve months have gone by.  Twelve interesting months.  And I use interesting in the most ironic sense.

Missing : Elaine Harrison, can you help?

Yes, I know it’s been a long time.  There are good reasons for that and I’ll post an update I’ve been struggling with for the last couple of months, but I’ll tidy it up and post it tonight, it will go some way to explaining my absence.

Anyway, onto more serious events.  A friend of the family has gone missing in the Nottingham area.  Her name is Elaine Harrison and this is her picture



From Nottingham Evening Post :

CONCERNS are growing for a missing 59-year-old woman.


Elaine Harrison went missing from her boat on Monday afternoon, police said.


She was last seen on CCTV at 3.43pm on Monday walking past Pizza Hut towards Castle Boulevard.


It is believed she left her boat, The Water Gypsie, which is moored at Castle Marina, near The Water’s Edge pub at around 3pm.

She is white, 5ft 2in, and of a large build. She has grey collar length hair and was last seen wearing black trousers, black shoes and a waist length light green or beige coloured fleece jacket. She was carrying a white plastic bag.

Her son @AndyHarrison80 is sending requests for information and sending out regular updates on Twitter (and Facebook, but as you know, not a big fan).


If there is anything you can do to help or spread awareness that would be much appreciated.


Thanks everyone, and I will send out the other update later today 🙂




The Day The Bubble Burst

I got in my car for the hour drive home yesterday and started the engine.  Something was wrong, I couldn’t quite put my finger on what it was.  I drove for a few miles periodically looking around but couldn’t work out what it was.  I was missing something, I knew that for sure.  I racked my brain and couldn’t think of anything I’d forgotten, the car felt okay so what was it?  Turning the radio off I listened but the car sounded fine so I turned the radio back on.

And then it hit me.

The Olympics – The View From The Sofa

Now, I’ll be the first to admit (as would anyone who knows me) that I’m not exactly sporty.  That’s not to say I’m hugely overweight and just cabbage, more that I don’t particularly enjoy sport and never have.  I was the last person to be picked for sports at school and never particularly got involved in any of the teams or found a sport I particularly enjoyed.  I’m just not a physical person.
