Music sounded better on record

It was “I am the one and only” by Chesney Hawkes, I think! Just got rid of my car with the cassette player – still have a few cassettes, but nothing to play them on… should just throw them away (have already converted them to MP3!) What was the first format you played music on? Post your own answer on Plinky! drbexl Life Explorer, HE/learning, Christian, cultural history, WW2 posters: Keep Calm & Carry On, Continue Reading →

It's hard to apologize when I know I'm wrong

In many ways it’s easy to apologise when I know I’m wrong, because then at least I do know why I’m apologising, but many times, it takes a while to work up to saying I’m sorry!!

I used those precise words when I sent an email to my Mum the other day. My plan on coming back to Winchester was to get enough work to see me through to June… job done, but although I’d had lots of conversations, I didn’t have anything concrete for my next stage – enough work to see me through until October. I was then offered 2 pieces of work which, if I’m careful, will at Continue Reading →

I dress to impress in RED, RED, RED

Red tulips Wrangels 30 april Well, if it’s an interview, clearly it’s going to be a nice pinstripe suit, with lots of RED, nice powerful and confident read… all nicely cleaned and pressed. Always looking for the ideal pair of shoes to go with… bit of a heel for confidence, but not so high that you end up walking like you have blisters all over your feet (which is of course quite possible!). If I’m Continue Reading →

I could eat nothing but pizza for a year

Haloumi Cheese, Zaatar & Tomato Pizzas by avlxyz No need to edit the default title! Italian: pasta, pizza, gelato all with in many different (and delicious) flavourings… what more could you want! Well, maybe to find the real cuisine rather than whatever I could afford for 2-3 Euro last summer: http://www.travelblog.org/Europe/Italy/Veneto/Venice/blog-330501.html drbexl Life Explorer, HE/learning, Christian, cultural history, WW2 posters: Keep Calm & Carry On, digital world, coach, ENFP, @digitalfprint, @ww2poster http://drbexl.co.uk Like it?
