Ahem, did you say Champions!?

Ok, while I’ve been away a lot has happened in the world. I’ll probably get.on to that later on at some point but right now I want to address the sphere of football. Do you remember my obsession from way back when? No?? Really?? Shocking… does this help??
 

Yep. That’s my team. And do you know what happened a couple of weeks ago?! That’s right, we were crowned EFL League 2 Champions!!! Yeah baby!!
You may not be a football fan but you can at least be happy for me and the city of Portsmouth! It caps a four year battle to get out of the bottom league of the EFL. It’s lucky I don’t have hair otherwise I would have been tearing it out!!
After dropping from the Premier League to League two in a space of 4/5 years, falling faster than a fat bloke on a bouncy castle…
It seems like things are on the up… we have an ex-CEO of Disney looking to buy us out and insert some cash into the club. Whilst it sounds like you’d snap their hand off for cash, we’ve done such a good job as a fan owned, and saved, club, it’s hard to trust any potential buyer without a strong sense of trepidation. We’ll see what happens there, I think voting has just closed…
Anyway, this may be a sign of the future… I may end up writing more about football, but hopefully I won’t bore you too much!
I hope you can join me in the celebrations that I’ll be having over the summer in pompey’s honour!
Play Up Pompey, Pompey Play Up!!

BREAKING: Chris Cornell has Died

It’s only just happened and I am shocked.

The very popular front man of Soundgarden and Audioslave, to name a few, has died at the age of 52.

I don’t know what or how, or even why, but it was sudden.  I love his music and am now playing Audioslave in honour of the great man.

‘Like a Stone’ is one of my favourites but he was so talented.  Even writing the theme tune to James Bond’s ‘Casino Royale’.

He will be hugely missed.

RIP Chris Cornell.

Update No. 1: Work Sucks

Now, you may remember me, a while ago I agree, having a bit of a whinge about my job? Well, not much has changed….

I can’t remember where I was working the last time we spoke (listen to me, talking like you’re actually here…) but in my current department it’s the same.  I work in an office and the pettiness here is…… mindblowing!

It’s like being back at school – squabbles here, gossiping there, fist fights…… ok, not quite. But only because I’ve been extremely restraint.

Now – is it just my workplace this happens in?  Do you have childish colleagues that you wish to punch??  Surely it’s not normal is it??

My boss.  What can I say that’s polite….  did you ever get ‘blanked’ when at school, when you’ve pee’d off a friend and they have the hump?  That’s what he does to me.  Walks straight past me and doesn’t say a word.  Ignores me in meetings.  I can’t even think what I’ve done to provoke such a response.

Does that constitute bullying in the workplace??

“No Win, No Fee……..” Hmmm

 

Work-Mentality

Hellllooooo, is it me you’re looking for??

Hello, my darling people!  How are you all doing?  Good,  I hope.

Right, let’s get it out of the way….. I’m sorry.  Really, really sorry.  I shouldn’t have left and not said a word, or even written.  I can only apologise.  Can you forgive me??

…….

I take your silence as a yes!

Well, now I am back, what do you want to know?  A lot has changed.  In my life and also in the world as a whole.  Donald Trump – who saw that coming??

Big thing with me is that I am in a new relationship.  My two kids are fine and happy, but their mother was a pain….. we’ve moved on.  I am now the happiest I have been in many many years.  She has changed me a lot.  Importantly, I can now drive!  And it was all thanks to my new beau, and it is made known who was responsible at least on a weekly basis….

backbaby

So, why am I back?  Why not?  I was lucky enough for some people to read what I had to say and stayed around while I was taken away by the … erm … fairies??  Either way, I still have a lot to say and feel this is the ideal place to do it.  The sense of the blog won’t change as it is still just me rambling most of the time, and as ever I welcome anyone to chat to me like they used.  I’ve missed this place!

Thank you for sticking with me.  I’ll try and hang around this time!
