What I love and hate about Winter in England

Hope this blog is not to strange but wanted to share with you my likes and dislikes about winter here in the good old UK.

So first of all I am not a hot weather person noooo cant stand it when the heat is more than 30c it makes me feel so uncomfortable and its not that easy cooling down either so the summers here are ok mainly 23c or 30c at a push but I would hate to live in a hotter country even though people are always saying its a different heat but its still hot no matter what, its like when people say oh its that fine rain that gets you wet emmm all rain gets you wet lol. Springtime and Autumn time are my favourite seasons because its not to hot and not to cold.

Now things have changed a little seeing as im getting closer to 50 yrs old I am starting to feel the cold more and now living by the sea its even worse with the wind being so strong as there is nothing to block the wind when it gets to strong, and the wind, the rain and cold well that’s when I say bring on Summer lol.. I guess its being human where we keep changing our minds what we like and don’t like.

I do allot of people watching and see some of the habits of various people of different ages and seeing what the older generation get away with and the younger generation its quite fascinating.

If any of you reading this have had this kind of experience please comment and let me know would be nice to chat, that kind of thing really does interest me. Also being a Vlogger I see this pattern in peoples vlogs from week to week sometimes contradicting themselves even I have done it in some of my vlogs its quite amusing especially when I think what I have said etc,.

Last week I did make a vlog and blog about my mental health as last week my anxiety was so high it was like being on a rollercoaster all week but this week so far being a Tuesday 6.20pm everything is good, im smiling and not a worry in the world but that could change in a second so I had better not think about that to much. I am also working on a new style of vlogging I want to do some short History vlogs there are plenty of places here in Dover England I could goto and film a short 10 min vlog but im waiting for better weather, I did try the other day but the wind was so strong as most places are out in the open and not covered up.

well there ya go, I had better end this blog for now, I do intend to do more blogging.

My Plan is

VLOGGING Sundays (during the week film what I can and make one video to upload every Sunday)

Blogging Mon to Fri spend more of the free time I have from vlogging less and concentrating on blogging because with words you can say more and your feelings come out better.

so thats my plan and if you want to follow my journey then please click that Follow button and see what happens in my life.

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.

Boxing Day Meaning

“this text was copied from google”

A ‘Christmas Box’ in Britain is a name for a Christmas present. Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants and the day when they received a ‘Christmas Box’ from the master. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give ‘Christmas Boxes’ to their families.

Its also a day when the posh go hunting with there hounds to catch Foxes which I dont want to go into..

At least we still have New Years Day to go so the festivities are still ongoing, I always hate it when the decorations come down because the room looks bare and upsetting but thats life lol.

My Week that was August 14th – 19th VLOG

There is something magical about switching from almost vlogging every day to going weekly, you realize that you can produce better vlogs by making each day different rather than realizing that your daily vlogs are so much samey.

I wish I did this weekly thing from the start but thats the point of Vlogging you always learn the best way to do things with trial and error.

Also still trying to find the perfect Thumbnail for my Vlogs, I want to set a thumbnail that people will remember when they see my vlog.

I will get there.

Sp please take a look at this vlog and head on over to my Channel and Subscribe (it does not cost a penny) I have also added some links in the description that take you to different days to watch.

Thank you for reading this and watching my VLOG

 

 

Update Aqua Dragons V Sea Monkeys

Update 17th August 2017 Day 05

Ok so the past few days have been a bit bumpy Both seemed to be sprouting lots of babies swimming round and was getting very excited but when I woke up this morning day 05 the sea monkeys had all vanished not any alive so dont know what I did there but things should be ok there are thousands of eggs in the tank.

The Aqua Dragons though are living and slowly getting bigger I now dont have to stand so close to see the little dots to move.

The good news is that the sea monkeys as I type this I can see very minute babies appearing so only a few days and they will be ok I hope.

Will add fresh new pictures in the next vlog regarding this Diary.

 

 

Aqua Dragons Vs Sea Monkeys Unboxing

Here is the first of many and its only the Unboxing but next Sunday 20th August 2017 will be the first full week of the weekly Diary.

I intend to record mondays – sundays the progress of the Sea monkeys and aqua dragons into one vlog so you all can keep track of which is best.
