So What Happened When I Wrote To Those Political Types?

Election fever is certainly gripping the country at the moment, and it’s certainly gripped me, in the sense that the fever has made me quite sick of politics once again. But all of this local and national nonsense doesn’t stop me thinking of something I tried during the last election all the way back in 2015.

You see, back then I’d been unemployed for quite a while. Frustration was something I felt every day as I spent hour after hour and day after day just looking for someone who’d give me a job, and during the election campaign I began to wonder just what my local parliamentary candidates could do for people in my situation.

A Tale of Two Bosses

As you may know I’ve worked for a variety of companies over the years, from local hotels to local factories to wrestling companies to retail establishments. It’s fair to say that I’ve encountered a wide variety of bosses during that time, and the other day I was reminded just how different two of those people were when I saw two of my former bosses in the space of a couple of hours.

TV Review: World of Sport Wrestling

It was a part of our lives for decades, and gave us legends such as the Dynamite Kid, Big Daddy, Giant Haystacks and many more until ITV took it off our screens in the late eighties.

But this past New Year’s Eve saw the return of the prodigal son as World of Sport Wrestling returned to ITV’s screens with a new generation of stars, with the legendary Jim Ross handling commentary duties alongside British wrestling stalwart Alex Shane.

You Never Stop Missing Them

Thirty-three years ago today, my Mum passed away.

I still remember the last time I saw her. She was watching television in the front room, and I said good night to her and gave her a kiss before I went to bed. I had no idea then that just a few hours later she would be gone.

Sorry for the lack of updates.....

You’re probably wondering where I’ve been recently, haven’t you?

Well, it’s actually been quite a busy time for me. If you’re one of my many social media followers you’ll know that this past July I finally got a job as a Sunday Sales Assistant at QD Stores here in Cromer. This was followed, six weeks later, with a second job as a sales assistant at the Claws ‘N’ Paws pet shop in Sheringham. This, along with my voluntary position at the RNLI Henry Blogg Museum meant that I was working in a variety of roles, which meant that this blog had to go on the back burner a little.
