Every now and again I’d watch a show on TV and notice something that stands out to me. Last night I was watching the latest episode of How I Met Your Mother – Season 8 Episode 20… The episode took place mainly in McLaren’s and sees Ted and Barney’s future versions attempt to persuade present day Ted to go see Robots Versus Wrestlers. Marshall and Robin have a dance-off and Ted Mosby gives a speech to his future wife… The “Ted Mosby 45 Days Speech”
Over and above the antics that the group get up to during the episode, Ted realises that he is actually all alone. Barney and Robin are busy planning their wedding and Marshal and Lily are busy with their new lives as parents. Hang on to the roller-coaster, I’m going deep here.... Read More
There’s no doubt that 2012 was a year to remember, for good or for worse. Who thought we would see 2013, with the Mayan apocalypse conspiracy and all that?

In loving memory of Lynn Bowers (7 August 1987 – 20 August 2011)
Lynn is the first person I was close to that I’ve lost to the evil known as death…. So dealing with what’s happened since receiving word of the news has been a first for me. And one I don’t wish on any of my worst enemies(not that I really have any, that I know of).
The first few minutes are pure shock…. You don’t know what’s going on, you try to figure out if what you heard is what was actually said and then you break apart... Read More
Over the past few months, I have moved away from the place I felt “at home” in to a completely new city and subsequently back “home.” During this time, throughout the process of moving away and moving back, there has been times when you sit and think back to the good times you spent with friends and family. thinking about these memories sometimes bring happiness and others sometimes bring some sadness, but more often than not as a result of these memories, it’s made us the people we are today, for the better or the worse.
Sometimes you won’t even purposely be thinking about specific memories, but the get triggered as a result of a song, watching a movie or smelling a specific perfume/cologne... Read More
