Autumn cleaning

I had a bit of a clean up on here, got rid of the jokes and some other shit; I don’t really want this to be a collection of rubbish found on the internet that everyone has already seen, I want it to be a collection of my own rubbish that no one has seen yet.

I am in a ranty mood (well, nothing new really), and feel a rant about driving coming up, watch this space.


YouTube video’s I posted here seem to have gone tits-up.

So, all of a sudden all my YouTube video’s posted here only show the URL instead of the video window……..*sigh*.

Nothing was changed my side, it just suddenly stopped working.
Looking around the interwebs it seems I am not the only one who ever had this problem, but so far bugger all useful information on solving it.

I have been messing about with it myself and managed to get a few working again so far by copying the URL twice into a post and then messing about deleting one of the copies until it just works again.

This is not fun WordPress, not fun at all.

OK, after some messing about with this I found I now have to re-open every damn post that has a YouTube link, place the cursor at the end of the link and press ENTER then save the page to make the damn thing work again.
Fuck you WordPress.


My fathers cat Blondie died today

This morning Blondie, one of my fathers two remaining cats died.
He was quite old, not exactly sure how old as he just turned up in the garden one day about 20 years ago, but we reckon he was somewhere between 22 and 25.

Age finally caught up with him, he had been getting slower for the past year, preferring to staying indoors in the warm on his favourite chair more often than not. For the past couple of weeks he had what seemed to be a cold, the vet had put him on antibiotics and he seemed to improve, but at the end of last week he became sick again, this time with some blood coming from his nose and a lack of interest in food and water. He was taken back to the vet with the feeling he would need to be put to sleep, but the vet thought another treatment of antibiotics would help, and after a shaky start did seem to be working, but over the weekend he was not good and this morning was rushed to the vet as soon as they opened and unfortunately had to be put to sleep, which all things considered was the kindest thing.

He was a wiry little bugger who would chase anything including big rats and foxes, he would spend hours outside in the garden watching and hunting, and often brought trophies from his kills or captures inside for everyone to share, he was such a considerate cat!

Rest in peace Blondie, we all miss you.


The Bad Bunnies have their bathroom rebuilt

I am far too lazy to write about this myself, especially as Mrs BadBunny has already done so on her blog, so have a look here:

Day 1 of bathroom rebuild

Day 3 of bathroom rebuild
Day 4 – not the bathroom
Day 6 of bathroom rebuild
Days 7 & 8 of bathroom rebuild
Day 9 of bathroom rebuild
