A General Life Update

The last time I posted a 'proper' update was the 23rd December! That was 4 month's ago! I am so lazy!

Back then we were all homeless after selling our house in Dronfield so that the buyer did not pull out and we could not yet move into our new house as all the worlds solicitors and estate agents are a bunch of useless tossers.

In the end it was the 14th of January that we moved into our new house. Exactly 1 month after we left the last one. The solicitors/estate agents were being useless so I insisted on having the vendors phone number and I managed to sort out all the obstacles in about 10 minutes.

So we were all set to move in on the 14th but unfortunately the nice (and definitely not useless) people at SBS removals could not deliver our furniture until the 18th. Bugger! Still, we didn't care and as we had our camping gear at my mum's we spent 4 days sitting on camping chairs and sleeping on airbeds. At least we were in.

The furniture was delivered on the 18th as promised as we are now all settled in.

Well, I say settled in.....Out house is great but it's decor has not been changed since the 1970's. This means that it needs a little money spending on it. The carpets for example are beyond terrible as you can see from this picture of Alice in our lounge. Notice as well the 70's style fireplace to the right and the 70's style doors I am taking the pictures through. Not good!

So, we have recently begun making changes to the house. Firstly we added extra plug sockets, network cables and sockets and extra Sky/TV cables around the house. We then had the 70's style doors between the dining room and the lounge removed and blocked up and this weekend we had the wall dividing the kitchen and dining room removed, giving us a MASSIVE kitchen. We went from this to this. It still needs plastering, decorating and the floor replacing but it's nearly there. Next all we have to do is replace every carpet in the house as they are all really nasty.

So, that is my update. I hope you now feel better informed on the exciting world of the Briddon family.

I have not been adding much to the site recently as I've just been really busy. I have not been taking many photographs either but still have pictures from November to edit and upload. Normal blogging and photo services will resume shortly.

BBC Sport - F1 - Sebastien Buemi escapes 200mph crash unhurt in Shanghai

Fuck me that is one mad accident!!! Never seen anything like it!

Apparently there was a failure in the front-right upright which immediatly caused an identical failure in the front-left upright. Whatever caused it you don't want both your front wheels to fall off at 194mph!!!

BBC News - Pope Benedict says Catholic Church must 'do penance'

BBC News - Pope Benedict says Catholic Church must 'do penance'

According his popeship this penance involves "opening oneself up to forgiveness, preparing oneself for forgiveness and allowing oneself to be transformed."

Nothing then.

How about the richest nation/organisation/cult on the planet makes financial restitution to it's countless victims instead of this crap. Penance should surely be something that is hard to do. I also think that this penance should not fall on the shoulders of Catholics in general but on the members of the church. After all they are the frock wearing kiddie-fiddling perverts who commit these crimes.

Seriously, this is surely the most insidious organisation on the planet. Isn't it time it was ended? Imagine all the good that could be done if their VAST assets were used to help the poor! Imagine how grateful museums around the world would be if all the artifacts hidden away in the Vatican were redistributed. After all they are only hidden away to hide the terrible truths about the Catholic church.

One fact to end with. I bet you can't guess where in the world has the lowest age of consent? Yes folks it's true. The Vatican has an age of consent of 12. Kind of sums up the whole religion really doesn't it.
