Another Year, Another Birthday!

I’m getting old now, I’m going to start drawing a pension soon if I carry on like this! Lol!

Yep, as you may of guessed from the title, I have recently had a birthday, it was on Saturday, and I am now 23!

The day started off alright, I opened my presents, and then I got a phone call from my mum, who was on holiday at the time in Cyprus.
Then my girlfriend came over and took me out for the day for a picnic on the Cheddar downs.

Boy was that some trek! First we had to walk up the road to a path, and then we had to walk up a load of steps, which would of been alright, but we were carrying all the food, and my presents!

Luckily it didn’t rain, and, even though the sun wasn’t out, it was warm, and it wasn’t all that windy either!
After the picnic we spent an hour or two in the gorge going in and out of all the shops.

And here’s the mandatory present list:

And now some news on my car.

On Sunday dad took me on a guided tour of the innards of my cars engine, we had towed the car to his work Friday evening, and he was working on it all Saturday. The photos can be seen in the usual places, on my website, and on flickr.

From what dad can see at the moment, it just looks like the valves need replacing, and because its been taken off, so does the head gasket.
But first dads got to make sure the cylinder head hasn’t been warped.

That’s it for now
Till next time!

Its Nearly Christmas!

This time next week it’ll be Boxing day, and Christmas itself will be over for another year!

The past week has been quite busy at work, the warehouse has been in a complete and utter state, and still is!
We just keep on getting stock, and nights just keep on not working all of it! And not working any of the back stock!

As for Christmas shopping, I’ve very nearly finished, I just need to get my girlfriend one last thing and thats her finished!
The last thing to do is wrap it all, thats a job for Christmas eve night! Lol!

The Christmas card count has reached seven, two of them from relatives, and another two are made out to both me and my girlfriend!

I think thats just about it for now.

Until next time,
Merry Christmas

Sunny Saturday Evening

Well its now Saturday, and I am 22, so that makes this the first post of my 22nd year 🙂 And the second post this week lol!

Thursday went off well, it was nice and sunny when I woke up and it stayed that way all day, in fact I cant remember a year were it has not been sunny on my birthday!

I got a bookcase from my parents, I didn’t know what I wanted for my birthday, so that all I got, and £60!
From my sister I got a pack of beer, and £22!
From my girlfriend I got an MP3 player, a USB aquarium, and two Mr Bean cartoon DVD’s number 1 and 4!

The trip to the zoo lasted all day! We got there about 11:30 am and left just before 5:30 pm
We walked around every where, and I’ve got 59 photos to prove it!

On Friday we went to Cheddar Gorge

The day started off overcast, but it cleared about 2pm
We started off walking up and down the road looking in all the shops then we started walking up the road through the gorge.
Some where up that road we found a path up the hill side so we walked back along the top and back into Cheddar.
We got back to Cheddar about 5:15 pm, and we were walking for about 2 hours!
I’ve also got some photos from Cheddar, mainly of the views on our walk!

I’ve just opened a Flickr account so I’ll upload most of the photos there.
I’ve started with some of the other 200 odd photos I’ve got on my computer.
At the moment I’ve got some of the nicer close ups uploaded, but I will upload more.

Its Saturday evening and Bristol Rovers and Bristol City have both won their matches, and me and my girlfriend are now going out for some dinner!

Till next time.

Finally Started Xmas Shopping!

Hooray!!!

Well okay, I went around the mall in Cribbs Causeway with my mum in the afternoon, and I brought a couple of presents for my girlfriend (read: *special* friend)

I was also picking up a couple of ideas for what to buy everyone else.
I think I have I know what to buy now. Its just a case of when I’m going to be able to have the time to do the shopping!
This morning, just before work!

In other news, I will get the images done for the Christmas theme, again I just need to find the time!

Gotta go shopping now
Bye for now!

Happy Birthday to Me…21 Today

Well, its my 21st birthday today.

I am typing this sitting in my new executive chair, with my new digital camera charging on top of the printer, I’m drinking a cold Larger left over from Christmas and my new t-shirts (4 of them) are in a pile on the bed.
I also got a road atlas of the UK, six cards and £45.

Going out for a meal with the family later tonight
