Have to start off with – I AM LOVING THE NEW NOKIA !!!!
Let me remind you – all the specs of a Samsung or iPhone, dual sim, expandable memory, two cameras blah blah blah – machined from a single billet of aluminium so going to be tough as hell but here is the clincher……….since last saturday, that is now 6 nights ago, I have only charged it twice. I shit you not, two charges in a week. A smart phone that only needs charging twice in a week – that has to be something special. OK, so I am not a person that uses my phone heavily but I have used it for GPS tracking, text, calls and even for a while in the week, I used it as a wireless router so that I could play Xbox live!!
Still not convinced? well, it has that famous Nokia ring tone but the real show stopper – ⅓ the price of an iPhone or Samsung equivalent. So when that Gorilla glass on your Samsung breaks when a fly lands on it, or your kids drop your iPhone and the glass breaks and you are faced with a £200 repair bill (and a weeks wait while it is repaired if you choose Samsung), think about the Nokia. Break the screen on this little beauty and its cheap enough to go and buy a new one. Forget £80 a year to insure your phone against damage that is should realistically be able to withstand – GO NOKIA !!
I chose the uber sexy black and copper for my 6.1 plus and it looks slick, feels robust and runs sweetly on Android One.
A big thumbs up to the Fins !
There – done.
Now lets talk V8, more specifically V8 supercharged, and most precisely V8 Supercharged – shaped like a brick.
I left Bedworth last Friday afternoon heading for Falmouth at around 16:00. I tapped the post code into my SatNav and the route came up, something like 280 miles. Very shortly after that, the message appeared, ‘not enough fuel for journey’. Funny huh – my tank was full but the beast wanted to use it all. I did manage to coax it along though and arrived in Falmouth with 20 miles of spare fuel.
Next Morning I headed to Redruth. I thought ah, Tesco will have the cheapest fuel around here. I was wrong. They were 5p a litre more expensive than a local stop in Falmouth that I drove past to get there. I splashed £12 in quickly as I was off the bottom of the gauge, and that splash never even registered, still showing nada after a £12 tipple. I drove back to Falmouth and filled the little beauty up.
So now I sit in Falmouth Harbour all alone on a boat. The crew are all taking time off and I am enjoying relaxing and playing Xbox on my lonesome (yep , I brought my Xbox and TV with me). Its blowing a hoolie but I am relaxed – I mean, what could I do if it went tits up? I am all alone and being blown onto the dock. Safe as houses !!
Still looking for my new job – harder than I was expecting it to be with my newly upgraded licence.
Hey Conor – whasssssuuupp

Stupid is as Stupid does……..I think that was Forest Gump? Well, he must have been talking about the locals in Belgium as far as I can see. I hit the forest this afternoon for my usual 27k romp, expecting to set a good time for all the slipping and sliding I was doing in the mud, when suddenly, as if by magic, the shopkeeper appeared. Well actually no he didn’t but there was one section of track, maybe a quarter of a mile long, a footpath worn in the forest floor that had been blocked by the local forest boys that had been out there chopping down trees. In that quarter-mile section, they had chopped 6 trees down, each one of them laying perfectly across the track I was trying to cycle on.
I don’t get it. How much of a twat do you have to be to do that 6 times and not notice the well-worn track that you are dropping these trees on ? I like the forest but man is it claggy at the moment – all of my running and biking times are suffering.
I did give an old lady a right rum treat today. For those of you that haven’t been here to the house in Belgium, one of the stair cases is visible from the road purely because of a ‘strategic’ window in one of the interior walls. I have often bounded up and down the stair section in question, aware that people might see me in the nuddy but have never really been too bothered about it – it would need a very specific set of circumstances to get the timing right. So brazen am I about it that I even do it at night, dark outside, light on inside – you know what I mean.
Well today I came happily trotting or maybe even cantering down that flight, completely in the nud, my bell end slapping half way down my shin and then onto my chin as I bounced happily from step to step. I then noticed a pair of feet on the footpath outside. With every step down I saw more of her, with every step down she saw more of me. She had definitely had a full frontal of my swinging wanger before she started to look away – better still, she had stared just long enough to see it without me catching her looking – as her head came into view, it was already moving downward, averting her vision but more importantly, avoiding eye contact.
I had to have a little chuckle to myself
That was at about 3pm this afternoon – since then, there has been a steady stream of old ladies walking past the house
More Halo action tonight with Mr. B – making the most of the empty house while the bird is away. Do I rock or what? 20 years ago, me in an empty house of an evening would have resulted in 16 Russian Circus Lesbians spending the night eating chocolate from each others bodies while the strippers tried to see how many of them could get on my face at one time without actually suffocating me.
Rock On !!
