I will never, ever forget my little boys first Christmas for a couple of reasons. The first was because he is my only child, it was a magical time for both him and myself, the 2nd reason is because he paid more attention to the wrapping paper than the actual present under it! So maybe this year I should try to get the best wrapping paper I can….
It is that time of the year again when we all disagree about what makes a good gift for someone. I wanted to give my mother-in-law a knife block for Christmas because I thought it would be a nice idea, but my girlfriend shot down that idea like an enemy’s plane! Well I thought it was good gift idea particularly when you have these to choose from…

I love living on top of a mountain. The peace and quiet, the views, even in the rain it is my own peace of heaven. But around this time of year the one thing I don’t like about it is when it gets cold, it gets VERY cold up here. Today my car was already covered in ice! All that hassle when I am in a rush to get to work as well. So I think it is time I took a look at….
If I am honest with myself I am a bit overweight, but very physically fit and active, I do walk my dog several miles each and every day (rain, wind or shine) and I have a small selection of at home exercising equipment that I do use for 30 mins each day without fail. But it is hard to stay motivated while doing a workout at home so I have decided to get myself some new exercise equipment, something fun, something amazing, something that is a little…different. So without further ado here is what I would consider to be… Continue reading
Here in the UK it is Fireworks night (Otherwise known as Bonfire Night/Guy Fawkes Night) and while looking into my pathetic little box of fireworks I realised that some of them have some rather fancy names! The Boom Stick, The Power Punch, The Fire Volcano they all have some very silly names indeed. But my ones are nothing compared to this lot…
Steampunk is one of those things I just don’t get. Sure I love everything about it, the sci-fi style, the amazing things people design in that style and all the cool art that people make that is inspired by this sub-genre of science fiction. So with that in mind, I thought it was about time I did a top 10 about Steampunk inspired items… Continue reading
Is it wrong to love your own blog posts? Well I do, and now and again reading them back to myself before launching them motivates me into yet another top 10 in another direction! Today’s top 10 come about because I really enjoyed the Pac-Man lolly in the post “Top 10 Most Amazing Lollipops“, I wondered what the best things inspired by Pac-Man himself I could find, and what I found is well worth a look….

If there is something I would love to learn it is how to play the guitar. Bass, Acoustic, Electric, I don’t care what one I learn as long as I do. But obviously I want to be like a rock god and learn the electric guitar! But with so many cool designs to choose from which one should I go for? Well I am a nerd after all, so one of these will be the right choice for me… Continue reading
This might sound funny, but I know I am getting older because I am finding more and more mundane things impressive! The other day it was someone running shoes, they looked so space age! But this post started because today someone showed me their new baby pram they are getting! It was amazing! And best of all it even had a coffee cup holder on the handle! But after a little bit of searching I found 10 that are so much better….
