Jersey Guernsey Diary – Day 5

21/06/2015

The final day of my Jersey Guernsey Diary includes a disappointing museum, Ben’s birthday and a shock in the gents toilets. Read on to find out more. On the last day of the holiday, I woke up about 8:30am. Grandad had already gone out for a walk, so I turned the TV on. To my…

Jersey Guernsey Diary – Day 4

21/06/2015

Day 4 of my Jersey Guernsey Diary includes the smallest chapel in the world and the worst cafe in Guernsey. Read on to find out more. People often complain when they go on holiday that the length of the stay is either too short or too long. I think we timed our holiday perfectly. We…

Jersey Guernsey Diary – Day 3

20/06/2015

Day 3 of my Jersey Guernsey Diary includes a holiday crush, a one-eared pensioner and Dame Judi Dench in a public toilet. Read on to find out more. On Wednesday I was woken up by the sound of traffic and construction work going on outside. Still, it wasn’t as bad as Grandad’s snoring. I went…

Jersey Guernsey Diary – Day 2

20/06/2015

Day 2 of my Jersey Guernsey Diary includes a missing chandelier, a glass church and some futuristic mannequins. Read on to find out more. The next morning, I was awoken by Grandad, as he flung open the curtains with a cheery “Good morning!” Grandad always wakes up early. He usually gets up about 6am and…

Jersey Guernsey Diary – Day 1

20/06/2015

Day 1 of my Jersey Guernsey Diary includes a dangerous toilet, a terrified octopus and a waiter called Ted. Read on to find out more. Woke up Monday with the worst back pain I’ve ever had. I think I must have lay on it funny. Not the best start to the holiday. At the airport…

A day at the hopsital

11/06/2015

Today I went to the Queen Elizabeth hospital for my annual heart check up. The first part of the day was waiting. We were there for a good half hour beyond our appointment time. Mother spent the whole time talking, which irritated me a bit. I should have brought a book. We were eventually called…

Tales From The Business Startup Show

14/05/2015

Yesterday, at work, we went to London’s ExCel for The Business Startup Show. We’ve been there a couple of times before to get some interviews and do a bit of networking. It’s usually a fun day – especially when Mak’s flirting or joking around with the people on the stands – but very tiring. Last…

Thoughts on… a Dream Database

12/04/2015

I’ve had quite a few dreams with celebrities in. Sometimes I wonder if they found out would they want royalties? Cos if you hired a celebrity for a party, you’d have to pay them to come. So why not for dreams? Anyway, this thought led to an idea. What if there was a way to…

Thoughts on… socialising

02/04/2015

Tonight I went out for a drink with some of the folks from work as it was one girl’s birthday. I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t really want to go, for reasons that will become apparent, but I thought I’d make the effort and since they were my colleagues I actually knew almost everyone…

Why I feel bad today

30/03/2015

Today during lunch I went into town. On the way, a foreign woman – who looked a lot like Felicity Smoak from Arrow – stopped me and asked directions to New Street station. She was heading towards the custard factory, so I told her it was back the way she came through town and pointed…

I Am… Captain Clean

16/03/2015

Strange thing happened at work today. I was in the toilet cubicle at work and a guy came in and had a wee, then went to leave. I heard the door open and without thinking I said – in a deep, rough voice – “You didn’t wash your hands.” and to my surprise I heard…

Thoughts on… how people used to measure time

02/02/2015

Sometimes I think about things that don’t really need thinking about, but I enjoy thinking about them anyway. Often times I tell my ponderings to Mike and we will share a lengthy conversation making it even more ridiculous. I had one such conversation with him a while back, but when I reminded him this evening…
