I haven’t blogged since Saturday. This must be the longest stint without updating my blog this year. I can’t even use the old laziness excuse for the lack of updates this time. I tried to blog, I really did. On Sunday evening, I sat down, with my laptop in front of me, staring blankly at the screen, hoping for something to appear in my head that I could blog about. There was nothing. I took to Twitter and the BBC website, in the vane hope that the internet would provide me with inspiration. It didn’t. Damn you, internet!

How can you maintain a daily blog when you don’t have anything to blog about? I am more than aware that when I do blog, 99% of my posts are meaningless drivel and about nothing. Given that this is the case, it is a pretty sad state of affairs that I cannot summon the thought process to write SOMETHING.

I am writing this blog throughout the day in work, while on breaks, of course. The office is unbearably hot. Our office is small. It’s basically a box bedroom attached to a building. Half of it is surrounded by glass. We may as well be sitting in a greenhouse. You could grow tomatoes in between the computers. It makes me hot and cranky.

This is just one of life’s annoyances. I shouldn’t complain. Hard to believe, but I do actually enjoy my job… as far as jobs go. One of life’s complaints which I will soon be free from, for the next six weeks at least, are the school children who I pass every morning on my walk to work. It’s not children I take issue with. It is the scooters they ride on. No word of a lie – every child at my local school rides one of the damn things. They don’t ride them safely, either. Walking my local pavements on a school morning is up there with crossing the M4 motorway, when it comes to danger. I have narrowly avoided being run into on a number of occasions. The parents of the children have apologised for their offspring’s wreck-less behaviour on a small number of occasions, but not very often. It is only a matter of time before somebody is killed… or at least receives a nasty bruised knee.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
