London: We will never be defeated

I am at a loss for words as to what is going on in the world today.  Really am.

I accept that atrocities happen on a daily basis across the world at the moment, but nothing really hits home until it happens in your own country.  Everything that happens is unacceptable and must, somehow, be stopped.

I don’t know or even pretend to understand the reasons behind why these people are doing what they are doing to people around the world.  I’ve read what they have said but still can’t fully understand why.  That may just be me, I am somewhat detached from the world of religion as I follow none, but when the battle turns to ordinary, everyday people; it must be stopped.

We’ve had Manchester, we’ve had two attacks on London bridges and now we have Finsbury Park.

Why?  Can anyone tell me the answer?

What are a group of individuals coming out from their prayers at midnight on a Sunday – what exactly were they going to do, what was their threat?  I just don’t understand.

All I know is, like so many others, I am deeply saddened by it all.  So many families and friends have lost loved ones due to these mindless attacks.  I am hugely proud to be English and I think the reaction and support given by an entire nation is astounding.  We will not ever be divided and we will stand by any country in solidarity and support against these cowards.

Winston Churchill:

“This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never — in nothing, great or small, large or petty — never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

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….

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!
