Day 5

Well Mrs English Blogger has been away for 5 days…and I am surviving. I spent ages looking for a cheap flight to Malta, but I just can't get one, which is a shame. Though I have found 1 but it leaves on the 11th and returns on the 18th and Mrs EB returns on the 17th so I don’t think I’ll bother.

The Cats are missing Mrs EB and are being a little extra clingy with me …which is quite nice

Well Mrs English Blogger has gone

Well Mrs EB is in Trapia, North Brazil. How do I feel about that? I feel proud that my wife is giving herself to this project. I also feel a bit sad and lonely being without my Wife, best friend and life partner. I have 3 weeks on my own to do what I like with really. I am hoping for some work and maybe a little time to get away myself? If David and Julia are agreeable and I can get a cheep flight maybe a week of diving in Malta?

Anyhooo I’ll post again soonly

Wednesday 19th July

It is a week today and Mrs English Blogger is off to Brazil…I am very happy for Mrs EB to go, but I am also sad to be apart from Mrs EB for 3 weeks, the longest we have been apart for our 17 year marriage is 6 days when I have been away at Spring Harvest or working in London. I am also a bit jealous as I would love to be going as well.

Well the last week has been a bit boring but OK, I did a job for London Creative, and it was our wedding anniversary last Saturday, we didn’t go to the pictures, but went to Solihull and then for a curry. My mum and Dad have come back from Spain and we met up with them for pudding at the Bassets Pole on Sunday. Mrs EB is in London tonight and tomorrow night, and I went on a Lads curry night last night. The Lads curry night was very enjoyable though my curry was a little to gingery for my tastes, it was sweet…but as an evening top banana.

Nuclear defence or not?

Well the topic of whether or not to renew our nuclear defence? has reared it's ugly head again

Personally I think it is a total waste of money, why buy something you will and can never use?

So you have to have a gun because your neighbour has a gun? No that is just crazy isn’t it? What next, he buys a bomb you have to have one? That is the stupidest argument ever.

You can never use a nuclear weapon as it renders the used area totally stripped of any useful purpose for up to a 1000 years? the waste carries in the air until it settles and then renders that area useless as well. It kills for an unknown time, generations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki are still dying from illness from radiation sickness, 60+ years later, and children born near Kiev in Belarus are dying and are still being born mutated from fallout from the nuclear disaster 20+ years ago.

Do we need a nuclear defence that we can never ever use? 25 billion, I would rather we used that money, on helping the third world, the sick, the homeless or maybe even the health service.
