A poem for Stephen

Our good friend Stephen is getting married on Saturday! (Photo above from Glastonbury Festival 2002 – Steve on the left with his best man, Mark.)

We go back a long way
So I wanted to say
On your wedding day,
I’m glad you found Kate
On that Tinder date
When it wasn’t too late,
And in love you fell
So we hear the wedding bell
And I promise not to tell
Of the things that I know
That happened long ago
When on Saturday nights we’d go
To the Dutchman or Half Moon
Maybe sing a karaoke tune
Oh, those days were gone too soon!
They may have been a lot of fun
But those younger days are done
And you have found your special someone
So let’s raise a glass to no more strife
And “Cheers” to a fabulous life,
With the beautiful Kate, by your side, as your wife.

Should I stop vlogging?
January 14, 2017
You might already know that I had a go at Vlogmas last year (It feels weird saying ‘last year’!) on my You Tube channel. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, ‘Vlogmas’ is a You Tube challenge to put up a vlog (video log) (Just in case my parents are reading this!) every day of December up until Christmas. I reached as far as day nineteen and sadly I had to give up. Even though I use an external hard-drive for the videos to free memory space; my old laptop just couldn’t keep up. Whenever I tried to edit my videos the mouse would freeze or go really slowly and the whole thing became impossible. Well Chris has been telling me for a while I needed to upgrade, and I have been coveting the pink macbook and I have finally bought one. Hooray! I can get back to video editing! Anyway, the question is, now that Vlogmas is over and I’ve nearly caught up on editing the videos; should I carry on?
how to make a rustic advent calendar
How to make a simple beautiful rustic advent calendar
November 27, 2017
I don’t know about you, but I’ve really struggled to find nice (and affordable) advent calendars in the shops this year. I haven’t seen any from Cadbury at all in Tescos, so I don’t know if there’s a general shift away from the chocolate advent calendar, or whether there’s just a short supply in my area. Anyway, it doesn’t matter too much to me, because I’d already planned on making a rustic pretty advent calendar for my kids. (By the way – this last point is a “blogger lie” ie. I made it last year, but was too late to write a blog post about it!) This one is pretty quick and easy to make, and is really effective….
