Fit roofers!

On a dreary Monday morning I was cheered up to see 3 fit roofers, working on my neighbours roof.  Two of them did my roof, and what a lovely view.  It really cheered up my Monday morning.  These are 3 of the best looking guys I have seen in my town. 

When I got home they were still there, and they had their tops off.  Now usually I am not a fan of men parading around with their tops off, but this was different.  Tanned torsos, slim and toned.  I haved never had so much fun putting my washing out.  I suggested to my Boss that we should get them in at work to raise morale, all they would have to do is walk around the building a few times.

I must be turning into a sad old cougar!  They must be at least 10 years younger than me, but it did cheer me up!  Spread the joy!

The Great British holiday!

This year as most British family's in these austere times, we went on holiday in the UK.  The kids absolutely loved it, but I can't seem to get my head around it and I am not sure why.  We went on holiday in a caravan in the Cotswold for one week and the New Forest.  The New Forest is gorgeous, really lovely.  One day we went down to the beach.  The weather was warm and dry but not boiling hot.  May be it is the fact that I don't feel like I am on holiday in the UK and am I the only person who feels like this. 

In the Cotswolds which is only a 15 minute drive from home the park is very geared up for the kids with entertainment and an indoor and outdoor swimming pool.  For me the holiday atmosphere was missing.  A lot of the parents and other campers seemed miserable.  Is this because they were all wishing they could afford to go somewhere else?  No-one seemed to be in great spirits.  People hardly made eye contact to even say hello.  However, when Brits are abroad they smile and take a keen interest in where you are from.  May be it is the economic climate or that is what it is like to holiday in the UK.  To me I find it strange and I can't understand why?  Next year we are going to France.

London's burning!

This week's news has been crazy. Watching the news every morning to see if there was anymore riots over night.  It was basically a load of young kids having a free for all and thinking there was no consequences to their actions.  I saw a few peopled interviewed from various backgrounds saying that there are no consequences for them and the prisons are full.  It was like saying come on you can get away with it.  What disgusts me the most is that these youngsters destroyed their own areas.  Lets face it Comet are not going to put another shop in their area.

It has been pleasing to see that the culprits are now being named and shamed.  I read in one paper today that one person has been evicted from their council flat.  Haha, so there are consequences to their actions.  So they should be evicted, why should the tax payers pay twice for their indiscretions.

I saw one young white girl being interviewed and banging on about respect.  She was talking in this weird clipped afro-caribean accent which I am sure she thinks is really street.  Those youngsters have no clue as to what respect is.  If they think respect is going in and ransacking shops and nicking goods, then they are deluded.

I do think the government is taking really good measures in making sure this does not happen again.  It is time we played hard ball and stop playing this nannying state that lets people get away with anything they want.  Whilst usually spouting out the "It's against my human rights.".  It seems these days you can get away with a lot by simply saying that.  Who made up that bollocks about Human Rights.  As usual this country has taken it to the wrong end of the spectrum!   It is used all to often as the get out jail free card!

Horse poo!

I am not sure if I am alone in my thinking, but should people who ride horses not pick up their poo!  We make dog owners pick up their poo and fine them if they don't.

Horses poo is a lot bigger than dog poo.  I cycle along a track in the morning and evidently a horse has gone down it and left a big massive poo in the middle of the path.  I am being serious, the owner needs to clean it up.  Imagine if I went through it on my bike, ewe. 

The person on the horse needs to get off, get a pooper scooper out, shovel it in the bag, put it over the back the horse and then dispose of it, simple.  If anyone has any ideas as to why we fine dog owners and not horse owners do let me know.
