Euthanasia.

UPDATE I just thought I’d update this post to let you all know that Happy passed away at some point last night. We think she passed in her sleep and seems to have gone peacefully. Thanks to everyone who took the time to read this post and comment, she’ll be sadly missed but we feel happy that we were able to offer her a home and a part in our lives. Rest in peace, my …

Alone in a Crowded Room

I never got it when I read things about depression and people said “I was surrounded by people, but I felt so lonely”. I’ve suffered with depression before, but if anything, I felt the opposite. People equals pressure. Suffocation. If you’re depressed, truly, genuinely, seratonin-deficient, you often feel sad without knowing the cause. Of course, the cause is hormonal, but it’s usually the perception of others that if you’re sad or depressed, there must be …

Road Rage.

I posted a while ago about recently acquiring a car and in the grand scheme of things, it’s massively improved our lives. We’ve been able to do SO much more stuff without factoring in public transport and we’ve been able to go places and see things. It’s made our world bigger. The one, very slight, downside to this is that since I last had a car, everyone else on the road seems to have turned into …

As it’s my birthday today, I thought I’d hand the blog over to you guys and last week asked you to tell me what your favourite songs were from 1984, my year of birth, a bit of croudsourced entertainment if you will. Here are some of them:

The Night That KFC Made My Head Explode…

Woman brings my food over to the ‘blue’ space she instructed me to wait in, 20 minutes before, where two melted pots of ice cream sit on the seat next to me. Me – “Is the gravy in the bag?” (anyone who does KFC properly knows the importance of the gravy) Woman – “Yeah, it’s in the box” ———————————————————— Get home. No gravy. None. Me –   .gif courtesy of Uncyclopedia. Rights belong to whoever it was …

Rug Doctor – The Results

Last week I blogged about my disastrous experience in trying to acquire a properly working Rug Doctor carpet cleaner, after being sent a voucher for 24hrs hire and a 1l bottle of cleaning detergent. I won’t rehash what I said, just know that it was a massive embuggerance. After writing said post and tweeting the Rug Doctor team, I got this reply:

Rug Doctor – Not a Very Good Start

A few weeks ago, I got a press release from the people who handle the PR for Rug Doctor, so I got in touch and asked if they had any review opportunities available. When we moved into this house our landlord, who was in full possession of the facts that: a) We have a dog b) We have a pre-school child c) The ONLY means of entry to the garden is through the French doors …
