    Alert! alert! new post :O

    Wow, 18 months since my last post…and reading that, things have certainly changed! and all for the better. Firstly, Lisa and I got married – very romantic affair really, it was sold to me that financially it made sense with the properties etc. As such, we got 2 witnesses, Lisa’s dad, and my mum and off to the registry office. We had the Muppet Show theme tune playing during the ceremony, then Lou Reed’s ‘Perfect Day’ (the only ‘sensible’ wedding ceremony song), follwed by Foo Fighters ‘Long Road to Ruin’. We left the registry office to the Muppets ‘Manamana’. Lisa […]

    The weekend, football, spooky stuff…

    So, another great weekend – Spurs had a resounding 3-1 victory over QPR yesterday (I’d put a bet on us winning 8-1) to end the weekend as it started ๐Ÿ™‚ I must mention first – Tash (Von’s youngest daughter) has just gone into hospital – her baby is due Thursday, but let’s hope she has an easy labour ๐Ÿ™‚ Talking of Tash – she actually looks like this: Her nickname at the moment is “Seven bellies” ‘cos she can’t half eat! Anyhoo, halloween tonight. Didn’t get down to the King’s Head at the weekend as Lisa had the kids, but […]
