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.

I am still here

Hey there I know I have not been blogging the past few days thought I would get a few things done during the Christmas and New Year period but I will be back to normal from next week.

I have been working on a new Vlogging project which I cant wait to get off the ground, I just hope its not going to be a huge flop. The way I see it is that being a vlogger you have to keep on top of things and keep trying new things so here is my new project, what I am doing is you know when you watch a Soap or a Movie and you try to imagine a scene done a bit differently like more funny or silly well this is what I hope to do by using graphics a bit like a puppet thing where i slightly animate a scene and do my own voice over.

alternatives ep1

This is the Thumbnail for my first vlog in the series which will be online January 1st 2018, depending on how it goes will depend on how I carry on making it lol, I will not be that upset if it does not take off at first but since I have put up a test video on what it might look like I have gained more subscribers lol so we shall see. As you can tell I am taking a funny side to a scene from Eastenders and from Star Wars ep VIII the last jedi, these scenes are very short in fact the first episode is under 2 mins …

so all that remains now is hoping the BBC dont mind me doing this as its just for fun and not intended to offend, I never intend to add swearing or vulgar language within the episodes.

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.

 

Evening Coffee Chat: 19th December 2017

Good evening you wonderful people

Evening Coffee Chat

Yep this morning I started a Daily Blog which I wrote at around 7am and its not 9.27pm and not one person has read my morning blog lol but i guess it can take awhile for something to take off so even after one day im not giving up that easy as I have learned from Vlogging..

So what has been happening today, work was ok just mainly sorting out the shop and chatting to customers which I love doing and it helps my Anxiety issues allot, after work I decided to check out some YouTubers and see whats happening in the world of Social Media and of course to see how other peoples lives are doing, isnt that why we enjoy watching reality programs to spy on other people and make sure there lives are not as good as yours but thats not why I watch other YouTubers as im not a Narcissist I watch other YouTubers because I like the positive and life learning skills they or most do without knowing. I mainly give off Positive vlogs and try to show how I cope on a bad day with Anxiety and stress also hoping that it can help one person..

When I finished work I decided to check on some other channels on Freeview that I dont normally watch, this is a test really as I want to do a Vlog on my reactions to watching programs I dont like or programs I have not watched since I was younger, I happen to stumble upon Walker Texas Ranger and I laughed well for the first 5 mins then I realised it was good apart from the acting lol the episode was called Saturday Night and it had Stallone’s brother in the main role as a nightclub owner.

So this is mainly my day apart from sitting here typing this all out lol..

Even though no one is reading this now but who knows in the future who will be reading these blogs.

Thank you for reading this

Morning Coffee: 19th December 2017

Every morning before work I always put on BBC One and watch the news just to see what good and bad in the world. This morning the weather looks ok for this time of year lol.

So why have I started doing this Blog, well it was a spur of the moment when I woke up this morning this was the first thing to pop in my mind, something telling me to write a blog calling it Morning Coffee hoping that no one else is doing this with the same title if there is someone then I do apologise and let me know then I can change the name in Future.

Ohh yikes a train has derailed in usa and 3 dead so far just on the news as im typing this OMG the film footage that is so bad OMG

So this is what I will be doing most mornings for the time being.

I have been for the past 18 ish months a YouTube Vlogger which has helped my mental state and given me such confidence in life to chat to people and be more of a people person that I want to be, my life has been a strange work experience which I will gradualy chat about over the next blogs, dont want to bore you all to death at the present time lol there is plenty of time for that. What I love the most about Vlogging is the freedom to express what I want with only a few guidelines and more freedom than tv channels. There are some good and bad vloggers out there and I suppose its the same blogging Trolls are everywhere but to me they only belong on harry potter or Lord of the Rings but that is my view.

So as I sit here 7.27am waiting to goto work drinking my coffee its a nice warm feeling typing my thoughts and views to the world wide web and then when I get back from work I can see how many of you wonderful people have read this.

I know this most probably is a slight bit boring but it is my first one and only thought of 30 mins before I turned on this laptop so I need more thought for tomorrow mornings blog which I will pay good attention to or maybe I could do a morning and Evening coffee something to think about I guess. What do you think if you have read this far lol..

Before I end this for this morning a quick question

What is your favourite coffee or tea?

Mine is a good Mocha thats made in a certain chain of coffee shops. but at home I mainly have the packet Mochas which are ok but they do the job..

Please comment if you have read this far on what you want me to chat about in the mornings or if you think I should do a Morning and evening coffee blog

Thank you for sparing a few mins to read this..

 

The ups and downs of being a Vlogger and Blogger

Hey there all reading this I hope you are all well and thank you for sparing time reading this.

So whats this blog all about well I shall tell you…

Life can throw things at you in life, like school you get good kids and bad kids and some like me were bullied through school life but that’s a different story, this blog is not about that.  I have always grown up to show respect to everyone even though I do not get it back and that has made me make lots of friends out there and so far never made any enemy’s well non that I know of.

Being a Vlogger making videos once a week is quite challenging as you never know who will be watching and me not being the best looking cookie in the jar I do gain and loose subscribers like the plague but that has never stopped me because making the vlogs is a challenge to me and it has built up my confidence so much that out weighs every thing negative. I am so far lucky I do not get hate comments mainly because I do not get any lol well the odd one or two but they are always positive comments.  I know I have a few dedicated viewers which I will always be thankful for and hope I manage to keep them for as long as I vlog for.  The one good thing about doing these vlogs is that its like a time capsule I can look back on last years vlogs and see where I have improved and what I can still improve on to gain more followers. I do not ever aim to get thousands and thousands of subscribers because that would scare me and being in the age group that do not make vlogs is challenging as it is.

My dream would be to collaborate with some other UK vloggers and learn how they coped when they started .

Being a Blogger is far easier and I should Blog more because I can express more as I am not facing a Camera, I have thought of the idea of Podcasting which is even easier but that’s for a future project if I ever gave up Vlogging then I would turn to Podcasting and more Blogging.

dpk Chit Chat Vlog, who am I? Why watch my Vlogs?

This is a vlog I have been meaning to do for a few weeks, the last time I did a vlog like this I was not so confident, also each time I do this type of Vlog I feel more confident to chat more and tell you more.

So let me know how you feel about this vlog if you watched it.

thanks again

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
