Grumpy Old Man

Get out of my way!!

I am a frequent visitor to the sometimes peaceful isle of Fuerteventura and there is one chip that is really getting on my old and wrinkling shoulder:

Cyclists and skateboarders!!!!


Credit at Christmas

I want to start this post by saying I love Christmas. It’s absolutely my favorite time of year – as much as I like to moan all year long, I do enjoy a bit of festivity at the end of the year.

I am also the person that looks forward to the Christmas adverts every year. 

But last night I finally got round to watching the Marks and Spencer’s advert:

My Short Attention Span..


So my daughter told me that I have a short  attention span!

She seems to get  quite frustrated with me at times

The time has come, it comes every year about September and I forget how much it winds me up. I have a lovely peaceful summer, my City is empty. I can go out, I can get a table if I want to eat and I can walk through the streets without the worry of tripping over litter, half eaten food or even used condoms – Seriously Yes! The arrival of this year’s Fresher’s has happened once again.
