Morning Blog Tuesday 13th February 18

Good morning everyone depending on what time of day you are reading this but thought about this last night so every morning before I goto work I would write a small blog on how things are and some of the news thats on BBC ONE which I watch every morning.

So this morning there is more news on the Oxfam scandal which is looking very serious at the moment as I live and work at another charity it is very frightening knowing this kind of thing has been going on for a few years its quite disgusting, also in the news the Winter Olympics which I normally watch as I dont like the Summer Games so need to catch up allot. North Korea has prised South Korea about hosting the Winter Games which seems a step in the wright direction unless there is more to it than that.  here in the UK we seemed to have created some software that can detect Jihadist content and block it, i know technology has moved on so fast but wow. There is still a drama between Kim Catterall (who I fancied for many years in the 80’s) and star of Sex in the City Sarah Jessica Parker they both seem not to like each other much but the other star Molly Shannon has defended Sarah after Kim’s brother was found Dead and a comment from Sarah to Kim rocked the boat it seems, I have never watch the series Sex in the City but hope it all gets sorted soon.

So its supposed to be an ok day here today in Dover England but according to the weather forecast is going to be rain and Gail winds so I have that to look forward to, but at least im working in doors today in the shop working on answering the phones and the collections/deivery diary’s which im happy with. Will also try to film some vlogging footage while im in there, I need a good Time Lapse video.

So thats it for this morning its now 7.53am on Tuesday 13th February 2018 and need to get ready for work which starts at 8.30am.

I will try to blog again tonight or if not tomorrow morning.

Mental Health #GetTheInsideOut

So all this week I have been filming short clips for my Sunday Vlog regarding my Mental Health State and this week has been a test because its been a Rollercoaster of a week which has been along time since this has happened but I know its all work related.

Sunday Vlog Week 6 #GetTheInsideOut

So this started Tuesday 6th Feb 2018 was a bad day one of them days I could not face any members of the public but thanks to the job I had to but felt physically sick when I did its a hard thing to explain but most of you reading this will know what I mean, it also felt like my mind was trapped behind 4 walls and could not concentrate at all.

Wednesday 7th Feb was a bit better but it seems like the mornings are ok but the afternoon was really bad, I kept myself to myself while at work by dusting the bric a brac which kept me away from most of the customers but it was not easy at all, I approached the staff but it was hard to explain why I felt this way because there was thousands of things going on in my mind I could not concentrate on one fully, bit like the game frogger standing by a motorway and waiting for a gap so I could run across but to much traffic, thats not what happened but how my mind felt.

Thursday 8th Feb was allot better starting to get my humour back and lots of nice customers in the shop so slowly sliding out of the mind set.

Friday 9th Feb was just the same as yesterday but knowing the weekend was upon me I was a little bit happier.

(today) Saturday 10th Feb the last day before my 2 days off, my mind set was completely different I seemed to have found confidence in allot of things today feels like the road is clear for now and feels like a door has appeared in the 4 walls i mentioned earlier, so was easier today to work even though I faced an irritating work colleague but delt with it confidently.

So basically my vlog tomorrow is chatting a little about what I just typed but you can see it in me I struggled, its not easy filming on a bad day mental wise because you dont want to show that side of you but felt it very important and more people should film the days when they are feeling so down because it can help in the future, Say you film one bad day and one very good day and upload and share then the other days you feel bad then just watch your very good day and it could help you, it does help me, then the bad day one someone out there could stumble on it and they could realise they are not the only one out there which helps allot, the main thing that has helped me is seeing other people with the same problems and knowing and sticking together we cant beat it but we can support each other.

please comment me if you have the same issues or just need someone to chat to, I am here weather its on YouTube or here I want to help the best I can, I am not a qualified doctor or counsellor but I can be there for you to chat to.

I will add the link to the vlog when it goes online after 6pm 10th February 2018 Sunday.

My nightclubbing days blog

https://youtu.be/0QH7P7JVOPQhttps://youtu.be/0QH7P7JVOPQ

Above is a link to the vlog that inspired this blog.

Many years ago in the 90s I used to go nightclubbing nearly every weekend which now thinking about it wow how did I manage to do that I could not do that now im 48. I do miss them days leaving the nightclub 2am then walking my girlfriend at the time home then walking home myself so long days in them days.

Please watch the vlog I tell you more on what I got up to.

There are so many stories of my life I want to tell in vlogs and blogs which I can’t wait for and yep why haven’t I done this before well didn’t have the confidence to.

2nd February 2018 AM

hey there and welcome back to my morning coffee, hope all is well with everyone.

this ep will mainly be about January and how it was for me, the month went really well for me my YouTube channel increased quite fast, can’t believe how fast the month has gone. I also had a week off on Jan where I went to London for the day and vlogged allot which was nice, but need to go back in April to vlog other areas like Chelsea etc, maybe national history museum again but this time film more. Also in Jan spent a week working in Ashford with the new retail manager which was a nice learning curve, she seems a nice lady and she is French so a nice accent lol.

So now it’s 6.47am I had better get ready and dressed for work, today we’ll this week I am working in Canterbury which is a nice city to visit. So only today and tomorrow to work yehh lol from Saturday 4.30pm I have 2 days off which I am looking forward to even though I have a few vlogs to edit and get online.

If you Have not seen my youtube channel go take a look, please let me know what you think, the link is in my biography.

Thanks you.

Why YouTube are you letting this happen

OK so first thing yes i know this is a Blog and nothing to do with YouTube but this is something I prefer to type up on a Blog and then do a Vlog without all the anger lol, not that this will be me angry but here goes..

This morning I read on teletext that Logan Paul (some famous YouTuber) has beaten Zoella with the amount of younger people following, why ohh why, after all the things that have gone on over the past month he is getting the wrong audience, Look at it this way please. say you have kids maybe you do maybe you dont but lets say you do would you rather your kids watch someone who will give off positivity and give advice like proper life skills without all the childish behaviour, or would you rather let your kids watch someone that is grown up act like a dick head and film dead bodies and play silly pranks on people, well I would rather someone positive a good role model like Alfie Deyes, the ingham family , zoella etc,.

Why is it that young kids are able to watch grown up idiots, these kids will grow up thinking its normal to film dead bodies, play silly pranks on people, throw water over people knowing there was a scare of acid attacks, they have no morals, that is not a good role model for anyone to have.

After writing the above Yesterday I have had time to reflect and I still think YouTube should help somehow with the new staff they are employing to monitor the bad YouTubers maybe this is what they are planning, well lets hope so. So the first 3 paragraphs of this was typed up on 31st January and this paragraph 1st February 2018. sometimes Its tricky to type its like having stage fright lol plus yesterday when I got back home I was to tired to think straight.

I am still planning on doing a short vlog about the above which I hope to film Sunday coming.  If you are a vlogger then please leave a message to say what you think of all this, and it would be nice to get a message seeing as no one does lol….

thank  you for reading this.

Until my next blog.

Week 4 January 22nd to 28th 2018

I hope you are all well?  there are lots of reasons why I do not daily blog mainly because of work that takes up 60% of my day and vlogging takes up 30% of my day and 10% is sleeping lol so there are no % for blogging so i am going to try to make vlogging about 20% and give blogging 10% lol so with them stats out of the way let me carry on lol

I uploaded some London vlogs the other day and one I liked allot which was a Street Performer the link will be below this paragraph (if i remembered to add it)

Harry Marshall is an Australian who has a great talent as you can see in the above video, he has style and the presence to make it big if the right person finds him.

#harrymarshall performs in London, when I caught him on video he was in Piccadilly Circus just by the big screen and was amazed..

So that’s all there is to say about Harry Marshall lets move on lol

This week I was working in Ashford with a new member of staff the new retail manger, I was a bit nervous as I have been working here for about 10 years and when any one new comes in you automatically think they are going to be a problem but no she was brill to work with and she is french so the accent was nice to hear.

The only issue about working in Ashford all week are the hours.

  1. wake up 6.30am
  2. head off to the train station 7.20am (30 min walk)
  3. train leaves Dover 8am and gets to Ashford 8.35am
  4. 15 min walk to the shop so get there 8.45am
  5. leave the shop 5pm
  6. train from Ashford 5.38pm
  7. gets to Dover 6.10pm
  8. 30 min walk back home so get back 6.40pm ish

so it can be a bit tiring but hey that’s life, still shorter than when I worked at Alton Towers when I lived in Stafford lol..

I learned allot this week about retail from the newbie retail manager which is a good thing, mainly how to display and dress tables etc,. when it came to Friday I was starting to feel drained but I kept on going so when I got home Saturday evening I was happy knowing I have the next 2 days off yipppeeeee but as I am tying this on Sunday 8.15pm I realise I still have Monday off so im happy, this week though I have been put in the Canterbury shop which is not as bad as the Ashford travelling anyway.

The Ashford customers are really nice people who like to chat and are happy to be mad welcome which gives you a nice feeling. The Canterbury customers are ok lol thats all im saying..

I am hoping to do a few Blogs during the week on how things are going.

As well as trying to vlog this week I did take some nice photos of the sunrise so here are some pics

 

 

And here is my latest Vlog for the week..

Remember to check out my YouTube channel from the video and follow my Blogs and vlogs on YouTube if you can..

Thank You

 

People who have no patience

People have said I have the patience of a saint, I can stand in a cue for ages and it would not bother me.  The amount of people I know who after 5 seconds have a short fuse and start moaning even people moan before they even cue lol what kind of world are we living in.

Growing up I was brought up with the ZX81 and ZX Spectrum where the games used to take 15 minuted to load 48k then you had to have patience but I loved it until the ZX Spectrum after waiting 15 mins showed an error and had to start again because the heads on the tape recorder were dirty lol… Now its put in a DVD and you are there so a massive difference.  I do admit that now im getting older my patience is not so good I suppose its an old person thing, well I hope it is.  The one thing that irritates me more now than ever is seeing someone who moans after waiting a few seconds like people in a cue moaning well they should moan at the manager not to each other hoping the cashier hears them which makes me laugh thinking about it.

Being 48 gives you some kind of pride I am (I know this will sound daft to you younger ones reading this but let me know when you reach 48 what you think) I am glad im getting older and wiser feels like when I chat people listen to me like I do when older people chat, the life skills and what life has been for them is so interesting, I will be glad when one day someone comes up to me and asks what was it like working at Alton Towers or what was it like being homeless (I was homeless for a short while in 2007). I used to listen to my neighbour when I lived in Stafford as he told me all about when he flew with Laurence Olivier in the war was amazing to hear.

So that’s it for today I will try to get into a routine for Blogging now that I only Vlog once a week I have more time for this.

Where I am at in 2018

vlcsnap-error108
Hey there better late than never lol I know I said I would be back 8th but things are happening and its all good, have made some new friends through YouTube and Twitter and my YouTube channel is slowly getting more subscribers so I’m very happy.
So whats been happening! Well been creating lots of vlogs after vlogging all of December I had to carry on for another week but now im winding down and only doing vlogs every Sunday which will give me time to film through the week and edit something good for a Sunday. I also have next week off January 14th to 23rd 2018 so I am intending to go to London again and maybe Brighton if I have the money at the end of the week lol who knows I could bump into Alfie or Zoella (Zalfie).
There is allot I can do in 9 days but mainly focusing on London and brighton I could also take a trip to Deal and sandwich to take some cool video as sandwich is a quaint town.
There are lots I would love to chat about but the most important is mental health yehh I know everywhere you look people are always moaning about It but my motivation is helping people because when I was younger no one was there for me to chat to about it so helping people is my passion. I am also going to do a series of vlogs based on positive which will reflect what I type on this blog.
Also I want to blog more than vlog so people who watch my vlogs can catch up on me through my blogs which gives them an opportunity to see more into my life as its easier to type feelings rather than film.
So hope you like this blog and if you do please follow for future blogs.
Hugggssss

And as I always say toodle pipps
