Hey, It’s been a while


Hey everyone, it’s been a while since I posted anything on here. to be honest I have been thinking about giving up the blog.

I haven’t had much time to put anything on here or had anything to say really.

So, I don’t know if I will continue with this or not, I’m pretty sure only one person on here would notice if I went away completely.

Anyway, I’m going to ramble for a while and see if there is anything interesting to write or not.

Where to start? Well, there hasn’t been much going on.

I have been mostly studying for my upcoming theory test as part of my training to become a driving instructor. By god, it’s harder than I was expecting.

There is so much that I have learned from this that I never even knew that I didn’t know.

The first load of mock test I did we utter failures, I just kept getting a lower and lower score. I was starting to worry that I had bitten off more than I could chew and that I was going to fail this miserably. I’ll be honest I was starting to panic that I was completely screwed.

Then I found a page on the site provided by the company doing my training that I should have read first, and it gave all the different information to pass the test. (YAY) I should have looked at this first but me being me just dove in head first and almost fucked up completely.

But now I have been going through the tests after and the juxtaposition between the before and after is insane.

Now I have booked my test for the end of the June (not going to say the exact date but it is before my birthday) so I’m working towards that, and when I have passed it I can move on to the practical side of things and, fingers crossed, I can be up and running, earning money by the end of the year.


Let’s see what else has been happening?

As if this week it is one year since I stopped smoking so that’s something.

It’s also one year that I have been unemployed. But I have been at home with the little one so win-win.

Speaking of the little one she has been hard work recently throwing tantrums at the drop of a hat anytime she doesn’t get her own way, it is really starting to grate on me she has got such a wee temper on her, I’ve been dealing with it the best way I can, by not giving in to her so that she learns she can’t get her own way all the time. But at (almost) 18 months old its hard to get this across when she doesn’t understand what I am telling her.

And I swear if one more person tells me that “she is going to be a terrible 2” I’m going to punch them. I really wish people would stop trying to tell me how to raise my daughter its really driving me mad.

The other thing is she is teething again, this time it is the k9 teeth that are coming in and I think that they are hitting a nerve as she seems to be in a lot of pain.

Now as much as I love her, and it’s more than anything else, I really want one night where she isn’t in bed with us as it seems to be the only way she will sleep the night if either I or the wife are hugging her. One night alone is that too much to ask?

Speaking of the wife we have plans in a few weeks for my birthday we are going to see a stand-up show for my birthday, we were going to be staying the night in Glasgow but tragically monetary issues are preventing that from happening. Can’t afford the hotel.

But we will be going for the day/night out get the train through to Glasgow, have a few drinks, dinner then see the show then head home, the midget shall be staying with my mum for a change.

I am looking to take on some side work doing transcriptions to make a little extra cash, it won’t be a lot, but it should be enough to take the edge off until I am qualified and raking in the cash.


The little one is still taking up most of my time, other than studying, and she is a handful but so full of life and cheer when she’s not throwing a tantrum.

Her new trick now is just running about the house shouting “Daddy” she does it all the time and it is cute. She also runs straight for me and is happy to see me when I pick her up from the childminders. She runs straight at me and into my arms.

There really is part of me that wants her to just stop growing, keep her as she is right now, never get any older and just stay my little girl forever.

I know that won’t happen, but I can dream.

Oh, one last thing.

This weekend we are all taking a trip into Glasgow and I have bought her a complete set of a series of books I want to read to her when she is older (I have read them a few times and they are great its Skulduggery Pleasant) and we are going through to the bookshop on Sunday to get the new book in the series and get them all signed by the author. So that when she grows up and is reading the books she will have the full set signed by the author.

How’s that for a present?


Anyway, that’s enough rambling for now. like I said at the start of this I haven’t decided if I will keep my blog going but I have a few months to decide or not so I’ll mull it over.

Catch you all later.

  1. Good luck on your test! Don’t listen to people who tell you how to raise kids because everyone is different and unique. I know what you mean about wanting a night without a child in the bed…my son was almost 10 before he slept every night in his bed alone. Have fun and enjoy every minute while she grows up 🙂

  2. The video is so cute😁 She’s way too adorable to be a terrible anything.
    Also, I would notice if you went away and YOU BETTER NOT! 😣
    There’s nothing wrong with letting things sit while you get things done and live life.
    Hope you have a fun time in Glasgow and ace your tests!😀

      Oh trust me she is cute in that video but she has a temper and can be terrible at times.
      Ok ok I’ll reconsider shutting it down don’t want you hunting me down.
      Test is still to come and we did have a good day in Glasgow despite the hellish heat watching the midget run around a book shop causing havoc and entertaining everyone was fun
