I went to Coventry Cathedral this morning to the Remembrance day service and on the way I stopped in to the corner shop to get my poppy. I was having a quick chat to the shopkeeper and he told me that a blind poppy seller in town had his collection tin stolen. I can't believe that someone would stoop so low as to steal something like that - at the most it would have had £20? Maybe a bit more, probably not. I felt really quite sad. The service itself was nice, it adds a certain significance to the whole meaning of why we remember, when you are stood in the ruins of the cathedral bombed in the Second World War.
The nice thing about going to town on your own on a Sunday is that you then get to go guilt free shopping. Not that I really bought much, but I have lots of Christmas ideas now! I did indulge in a plate of meatballs at ikea at lunchtime though - mmm meatballs. I've no idea what they make that sauce out of (nor do I particularly want to find out) but whatever they do to it, it's very tasty!
Just got back and crashed on the sofa in front of the TV for a bit. Why is it that they've changed the mascot for Mr Muscle? Wasn't the whole point of the last guy that even weedy geeks with no muscle could clean with ease thanks to Mr Muscle power spray? Now it's this weird animated Arnold Schwarzenegger character who all the housewives are drooling over...it's just wrong. Bring back the geek, that's what I say!!
Anyway. Yes. Product based rant over.

So for a few weeks I've not been able to sign on here (am guessing the whole "WGA is free, woop!" thing maybe cocked up the system a bit) and so have not been able to rant/muse/ponder the various things that happen in my little world.
The first thing I was going to write about was thiswhich I was absolutely horrified by. Although I shouldn't be surprised that humans are capable of such cruelty, this kind of barbaric quest for blood is beyond my comprehension. It just makes me sick.
Then I thought I'd better say that after 2 long years I've finally passed my LPC so now have a postgraduate diploma in legal practice (yay!) but that I've no idea what I want to do with it (oops) so I should probably get my thinking cap on with that one...
Lots has happened since I last did a proper blog catch up, I've turned 26, become an auntie, done a few concerts, cried & laughed a hell of a lot...that's just for starters! All good stuff. I'll leave it there for now, may blog properly soon (now that I've got it back!)
