NO, WE DON'T ALL SOUND LIKE THE QUEEN!!
For those reading this who aren't British, please please PLEASE look up the Welsh accent, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Liverpool, Newcastle and various other places. [Look up Vernon Kay or Johnny...
an Irish pub for a Belgian beer.
Then on the way home grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab, to sit on a Swedish Sofa and watch USA shows on a Japanese TV, while being suspicious of anything foreign.

are these stupid fireworks being set off for a whole week leading up to Bonfire night. Yes we get it, but learn to respect how late it gets and that people need to get up early in the morning for school or work. It's nearly midnight people, leave us alone ^_^

"Alright me old geezer, how's it going son?"

INVASION?????(I'm not)I posted a pic here not long ago, of a fairly generously sized spider in my bath. He was a charming little creature. My heart didn't even skip a beat when I saw it. I studied it for a bit, talked to it, caught it gently in a glass, and put it out. No big...
Since I’ve turned forty.
Lots of things have happened since I’ve turned forty.
I have learned to accept that I am physically not perfect and that no one really is. Okay, so things have headed south but my smile hasn’t. No longer do I judge a book by it’s cover and what...
There is so much I love about this country: our tolerance; our sense of humour; our big hearts when it comes to charitable causes; our resolve; our music (Queen, The Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles...); our authors (Dickens, Shakespeare...); our comedy (Ricky...
who are getting divorced is increasing. In contract, overall divorce rates for all married men fell from 13.6 per 1,000 to 10.8 over the same period, and the trend was similar for women.
Why are all the older people getting divorced? Is it all the silver-surfing?
Being British is about driving a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgium beer.
Then traveling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese television.
It was good to be there and show respect for the fallen. A few hundred people gathered together with the sole purpose of remembering the sacrifices of generations long gone and those present and correct.
For our tomorrows they gave their today.
