And relax……

So I’m classing today as my first ‘proper’ day of the summer holidays and luckily God appears to have answered my prayers for sun!

So what have I done with this wonderful first day of the holidays? Well I’ve been cleaning the kitchen and have given myself a 20 minute break to go for a coffee in town.

Living the dream! I think this being off might be harder work than being in work.

And sleep…

Sleep is not something that I used to have problems doing, however over the last couple of weeks I have really been struggling to get enough hours rest.

What is causing this, I don’t know. What I do know is that I wouldn’t be lying here in bed at 1am typing a blog post into my phone if I was able to sleep.

Maybe I should start drinking Horlicks before bed. 🙂


I know I don’t update this blog as often as I should.

However I do not appreciate my web hosting company doing some maintenance on the server JUST as I am doing an upgrade to WordPress which takes seconds.

It left my blog in an unworkable state. I have had to start from scratch, which means that any posts made in the last year have gone.


Going, going,

Gone! – my blog is now going to be both updated and hosted by myself personally at

I didn’t want to move to Blogspot hosting it and as FTP hosting is being removed I guess I’ll be one of those 0.5% of people that are being affected!

So I’ve moved over to WordPress and imported my existing posts (not that there’s a lot there anyway)

Hmm – why the long face?

I have no idea why I haven’t updated in such a long time. Well, actually that is a complete and utter lie. It’s because I’ve been rather busy and when I have had free time, I’ve not really wanted to post here.

But for some reason I got the urge tonight….

So, what is going on with my life then?

  1. I have been doing my PGCE in Applied ICT since last September
  2. I’m enjoying it sometimes, but hating the paperwork and the pressure
  3. I’ve since been on holiday to Sweden and can’t wait for the summer holidays so I can go away again!
  4. I was in a pantomime and wore a dress :-S – pictures are on my Flickr profile….
  5. I’m currently on my second placement at Bebington High Sports College and I quite like the place. Despite my initial worries, it’s not a bad place.
  6. I will at some point take over the World. Mark my words….
  7. My front room will eventually get decorated fully. 🙂

Other than that not a lot going on. Applying for jobs, trying to find my feet and figure out if I have made the right choices.

All Change

Yesterday I told work I was leaving this Friday….

Why? You may ask.

Because I’m embarking on a PGCE (Post-Graduate Certificate in Education) course this coming Monday. This will be a full-time course, and to be honest, I don’t think part-time hours will be very do-able in conjunction with me having to actually do some work.

Hopefully this time next year I be worrying about starting a new job as an ICT (Information and Communications Technology) teacher in a school.

I’ll post more after Monday. Maybe a few photos of the campus. I also need to post about Gav and Savanna’s wedding once I get round to uploading all the photos.

Blog is merely sleeping…..

Well I know I haven’t updated in quite a long time. Things in life taking hold, etc.

I promise that I will update within a week or so with some updates with my life, plans and aspirations for the future and what will be happening.

There could be exciting times ahead for me, or at least a change of scenary.


So I was sat on the bus to work (rail replacement bus – argh! made me late again!) and I was listening to an old album I’ve got by a singer called Plumb called Candycoatedwaterdrops and as I was listening a song called Phobic really spoke to me. So I’ve decided to post the lyrics….

I watched you sit alone
I watched you cry your eyes out
Now tell me what you’ve done

Is it so bad that
I would shut you out
And leave you here alone

Yes, I saw what you did
I was right there with you
I won’t let you sink
No, I forgive you

Don’t be
Grace needs a little more freedom
Don’t be
Love needs room to breathe

I have watched you grow
And I’ve stood in your shadow
I’ve never walked away

I hung the stars and
I hold your heart
So, don’t ever be afraid

Yes, I know when you breathe
And I feel when you need
I won’t let you sink
No, I forgive you

You can be healed
You can be free
You can know peace
Never be afraid again

Never be afraid
Never be afraid
He’s here

At some point I will get round to posting about my holiday to Australia (with photos, etc) and will post about the Gathering Max that I went to yesterday. But that’s it for now.
