This page contains allsorts of bits that I feel should be published here, my interests, news, whatever I have been doing, you name it, if it doesn't fit anywhere else, it will be here, lol!

This page needs completely re-hashing as life has changed soooo much since this was last updated that barely any of it is relevant any longer.

I'll be sure to do this as soon as I possibly can

What's Goin' On

Things that fill my life

My Family

Jason, Amy and Evie x

My eldest is Jason who has been with Amy forever now and this week, they gave us the gorgeous Evie.

Jason is 20 now and is at college, as is Amy. 

He is into metal and is being a good boy and taking his Mummy to see KISS in May next year, roll on May 10th.

He has been the drummer in a band, Breaking Point for the last few years but they have finished now that some of the members have gone away to Uni, to compensate, he is now teaching himself to play the guitar.

Gemma

Gemma is my daughter.  The only girl out of my kids.

She is 18 in February and is going to go to Blackpool with her friends to celebrate.

She is funny, she makes me laugh all the time, when she is not annoying the hell out of me, lol, she does it on purpose, she thinks it's her mission in life and tries to fulfil that to the best of her abilities.

She changes the music she likes often but I trained her well and she likes a lot of the same stuff that I do, all the 70s and 80s stuff, she wants to marry Gene Hunt and she doesn't have a single photo of herself where she isn't pulling some face or another, the albums are hilarious.

Damon

Damon is the youngest of my kids that I have with me.  Whether he likes it or not, he is always going to be the baby.  he is 15 now and 16 in May, Damon and I get on really well, he is like a little Mini-Me, we have decided we will move out on our own as it will stay clean and tidy that way!

He is absolutely mad on Britney although recently, Cheryl Cole has moved in on Britney's territory.

He is a fabulous web designer and graphics creator, if I had even a quarter of his talent I would be way happy.  he would love to work in the media industry when he leaves school, he has enough talent to do it, he just needs to take off his headphones and get out there and do it.

Alfie

Alfie was my last baby, he was born on the 3rd of the 3rd 2003, he was absolutely beautiful but sadly he was stillborn and so is no longer here with us.

He is pictured here with his little teddy from before his funeral.  He was perfect in every way but he was just not meant to be here with us for very long.

His full story can be read on his website, I thought he deserved to have his memory kept alive, just because he isn't here with us every day doesn't mean that he should be forgotten. www.bornsleeping.com

My Pets

Woody

Woody is our lovely 7 year old Westie, yes, she is a girl with a boy's name, it's a long story!

She loves to chew her toys to bits as seen here with her Santa toy form last year and she likes to babysit for Evie, they have been named as partners in crime already although Evie is only 5 days old, they have a connection going on.

Woody likes to think she is a cat and thinks that she can do everything that she has seen cats do, it doesn't work out too well for her most of the time but if she hasn't learned by now, I don't think she ever will.

Meg

Meg is our other Westie.  She is ten years old now.

We got her from a family who said they were moving out of the country and she was really quite ill.  We didn't know how ill until we had her to the vets to be checked over when we got her.

She has to take hundreds of pounds worth of medicine every single month just for her to get by from day to day and manage every days functions without being in a lot of pain.  She is lovely though and has wrapped us all around her little finger, she has the saddest eyes I have ever seen on any living creature in my life but she is funny and makes everyone laugh every day, a little character.

Sickboy

Now this is my baby.  This is Sickboy or Sicky as he gets called every day amongst many other things.

He is 14 years old and I watched him being born, he was in the first litter of babies that his Mum Laalaa had when she was my cat.

Sicky was very small and weak and wasn't very well and so I decided to keep him myself and eventually he became strong and beautiful and very clever and he is the bestest puddy tat in the entire world and anyone who says he isn't is a liar and I will get them when they are not expecting it . . . OK!!

Frankie & Benny

Frankie and Benny are my two rats,
They joined us in early December 2009. The 8th if I remember rightly.

They were in an adoption centre in a pet shop and were there because their previous owner had rats who kept having babies and they couldn't look after them.  We couldn't leave them there knowing that as we are soft so brought them home, they are fab!

Frankie is the more timid of the two, Bennie is boisterous and bold but the odd time, Frankie is more inquisitive and will go to someone who goes to the cage whereas Bennie will reserve judgement until he is out and then just go slighlty mental jumping all over the place, love them both  :)

Cannon and Ball

Bob and Tom in Darwen - Nov 09  aj

I remember watching Cannon and Ball on TV as a kid as do most of us over a certain age in the UK.  I thought they were the funniest thing ever, I sat there week after week with my Dad watching these two guys who I just loved.

One week, the announcer said at the end of the programme that that particular show was the last in the series. This caused me to bawl my eyes out as I thought that meant that they were never going to be on the telly again ever.  It took some explanation form my Dad and a fast promise that they would be back the year after for a new series to calm me down.

This all seems a million years ago now and today I am very proud to be able to say that I know these guys personally and am happy to call them my friends.

I am currently running the Official Cannon and Ball website which I designed and built and spend a lot of time maintaining.  I also look after the Fan Network where many of their fans gather and continue to support Bob and Tom with everything that they do.

Bob and I - Hull 08

I speak to Bob regularly as there are constantly people wanting to get in touch with Cannon and Ball and the website is a hotbed for incoming messages and requests.  Bob has always been lovely to me and to be friends with someone who meant so much to you as a child is an absolute pleasure.
Long reign Cannon and Ball as the Kings of Comedy and long may we be friends, I thank you for everything. x
