I saw a the loveliest wee baby boy while i was waiting on my friend getting her hair done aaargh!
This morning an advert for Miley Cyrus something or other came on our screen. My two year old Andrew pointed and said “Oooh Hannah Montana!” and he smiled. I could see little Laurence shaking his head and frowning. “What’s the matter Laurence?” I asked and he replied, ” I don’t like Miley Cyrus mummy, she has a nose like a witch!”
“Does she?” I sort of stammered while trying to remember what Miley Cyrus looks like, “But you can’t not like someone because of how they look sweet pea!”, I said still shocked, ” You have to judge them on if they are a nice person or if they are friendly to you!”.
Laurence looked at me for a few seconds and sort of shook his head a little, ” OK mum but what I’m trying to tell you is that she LOOKS like a witch, what do you want me to do about THAT?!? I’ve never met her!”
*sigh* ……. I should never have left my Sky mag lying open with this picture —–>
Apparently she got a lot of stick for posing for this, as did her mum and dad for letting it be taken.
David Tennat is stepping down as Doctor Who. After 4 years in the role he is moving on which in a lot of ways is good because he is a great actor so I look forward to seeing him in other things.
People earmarked to play the Doctor next are
Fair enough, all are good actors but none of them are what I’d call my favourite candidates. Here are a few people I think would be good to watch as the new Doctor Who
Russell Brand …….. no, im serious
Ok…….. what do YOU think??
At least 5 people are thought to have died in a mid-air collision above Warickshire, near Coventry. It is not yet known how the planes came to collide minutes away from landing at 11.40 this morning.
A joint investigation is underway by Warickshire Fire & Rescue service and Air Accident Investigations, who are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information about the circumstances of the collision.
The aircrafts involved in the collision are thought to be a MicroLite Aircraft which landed more than a mile away from the other plane, a Cessna. The main area where the Cessna Aircraft has landed is in a wooded area and services are struggling to reach the crash site.
The planes are understood to have been in contact with Air Traffic Control.
Next of kin have been informed.
Reconnaissance Ventures, a Cessna Aircraft company have released a statement confirming that 4 staff have been killed while on a routine aerial survey trip. They had been given permission to land minutes before the crash occurred.
Of course, by ‘heart’, I dont mean take your name off the donor list or anything. I mean your secrets, your joys, your pains, your emotions. Only when you hand over these things to someone, whether that is by accident or on purpose, are you handing them a dagger to tear you apart with.
Keeping someone out of your heart should be like keeping them out of your underwear drawer. You might, on occasion let them see the best, on the surface of the drawer, but you’d rather they didn’t dig any deeper. You’d rather they didn’t see that pair you’ve kept since you were 15, or that pair you wear when you’re alone around the house.In fact, there are a whole lot stashed at the back of that drawer that you never want them to see, or touch.
There are two kinds of lovers in the world.
The lovers who act like they love you, they make you believe that they love you, when in fact, they dont. In your relationship, you will always be on the edge of heartbreak, and not even realise it. Maybe, from time to time, you’ll get a feeling of uneasiness-but you’ll quickly discount it because you have entrusted your heart to this person as you believe they have done with you.
Sooner or later, whether; you come home to find them gone, or you find love letters from someone else, the pain of the realisation that all your love was just something to occupy them, will come. Maybe you’ll choose to lick your wounds and find someone new, and keep chasing the romance of love. Or maybe you’ll take a look at your broken heart, with pieces missing, the pieces you broke off and gave to them- your secrets, your hopes, your trust, your intimacy and realise that, when its all mended- you never want to see it broken again.
So you’ll wrap it in cellophane, encase it in perspex and place it in a glass case- so that maybe, one day, you can show it to someone else but they will never be able to reach it. They can press their faces against the cold partition until the warmth of their own face heats it and they begin to think that maybe they are really touching you. But you’ll know, when the time comes that they can scratch and beat and pound with their fists at your heart- but you wont feel a thing- because they only ever reached it in their imagination.
And when this happens, you will realise that you have become the thing that made you lock away your heart in the first place.
One day, you’ll decide to take out your heart- dust it off, watch the cold blue disappear and the blood red flood back through it. It will look so beautiful to you that you’ll put it on your sleeve. You’ll let everyone see it and touch it and you’ll marvel at how good it feels to be alive. Then you’ll hand it to someone- special or not, deserving or not- you’ll thrust it at them with all your might. You’ll break off pieces of it all over the place and surround them with it. You’ll leave pieces in their kitchen; in their car, in their bed, you’ll serve some up for dinner and keep filling their glass with it, until they are so full they can’t take anymore.
One day they will look around and see the mess of your heart all around them. They will feel suffocated- yet you- so happy to feel love in your heart again will keep giving and giving. It is then that you have become the SECOND type of lover in the world.
You have to be ready to realise; you will be with someone who is everything you want but keeps you at a distance. Or, someone who holds you close to them but isn’t what you want. Maybe you’ll even make the mistake of thinking that nobody can be both, or that the closer you get to someones true unbarriered heart, the further away from what you thought they were they get. In a rare case you might get both the person of your dreams, who takes you into them like a missing piece of themselves; that they have long looked for and you’ll fit there, snug and secure in their love, till only death seperates you.
I can’t tell you which of these I am.
But here I am sitting thinking of you, wondering where your heart is; wondering if you’ve ever meet in the middle of love and broke off half of yourself and exchanged it. I’m wondering if you’ve ever looked around and saw you’d dropped your arms in exhaustion, and scattered all the pieces you were holding of eachother. I’m sitting thinking, maybe I would like to kneel down with you- and pick them up again. Maybe we can just pick each other up again?
If you watch the clip i have uploaded, maybe you can identfy the types of hearts im talking about.

Police in Germany used special technology to ‘un-swirl’ his face in child sex abuse pictures posted on the internet and an Interpol manhunt tracked him down in Thailand but yesterday Christopher Neil was smiling as he started a 3 year and 3 month sentence in a Bankok prison.
Despite Neil appearing in hundreds of child pornography pictures, the Thai judge was lenient because Neil pled guilty. He was ordered to pay 60,000 Baht (£955) to the parents of one of his victims while he still faces trial over abusing the boys younger brother.
When asked to comment on his sentence Neil said he was “OK” with it and it was “Fine”.
I have to say, this sends out a terrible message for all the dirty paedophiles who are using Asian Countries, such as Thailand and Cambodia as in Neil’s case, that it is fine to abuse and rape its children. I have to wonder why a judge, in any country, who is faced with a pervert like this would not sentence them to at least 40 years. I think it should be manditory, such as in cases like Christopher Neil, when a paedophile is caught in pictures or in videos abusing children, that they are castrated and given 40 years in prison. I think that would send out a pretty strong signal. A slap on the wrist such as this is not enough. It’s the same in Scotland and the rest of the UK. Legislation on any type of child abuse should be stringent. Even the death penalty wouldn’t be too harsh. Even torture…yes, thats it… they should be castrated, tortured for a few years…then hung…then fed to pigs.
British politics feels as though its been spinning on its head in the past few weeks. Like Alice falling down the rabbit hole, it feels as though we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel get farther and father away as we approach an uncertain, backwards landscape, where nothing is as it seems.
Firstly, we had the defeat of Labour in the Glasgow East by-election. It created, what the SNP called, ‘a political earthquake’. For Labour to lose a seat which they have held for over 50 years isn’t just a case of poor candidature, although, Margaret Curran did seem quite happy to take this defeat purely on her shoulders. No, this has been the culmination of widespread political turmoil for the Labour party in Scotland and South of the border. It could have been described as a valiant move on behalf of Margaret Curran- to put herself forward for election in Glasgow East, because it was never going to be an easy ride. However, Scottish Labour was without a leader and with more than a whiff of scandal still lingering, it seemed the Glasgow East seat was something of a hot potato. Simply, Margaret Curran needed to put herself in the ring just to save Labour incurring more ridicule. Still though, for her to suggest these wider party issues had nothing to do with her defeat is commendable. All being said, SNP deserved to win Glasgow East- not only on the brilliant campaign they fought but the credibility of the candidate (something Margaret Curran lost the first day of her campaign) and the record on which the new SNP government can stands.
So, if things were going wrong for Gordon Brown before Glasgow East, they were about to get a whole lot worse. In the alternate universe that is Westminster, rumblings about Gordon Brown’s leadership credibility began to shake cracks in his iron support. Let’s face it, he didn’t do himself any favours when he eradicated the 10p tax rate and increased the car tax rate- after all, can we really believe Darling had any elbow room in his first budget?
Everyone seemed to be looking forward to their holidays, and Gordon Brown slid out of the heat of the kitchen to peaceful Suffolk. Meanwhile, those shaking in their constituency boots waited for someone to stick their head above the parapet and test the waters for a leadership challenge. Hi-Ho silver for David Miliband, who, with all the subtlety of brick to the back of the head- prints a manifesto for change for the Labour party. We couldn’t have made it up if we tried, but in this article didn’t mention one word of Gordon Brown’s role as leader, now or in the future.
But, it seems David has been a little naive. No sooner had he dotted the i’s of his Guardian article than the Brown supporters had taken aim with their cross-bows and shot him down in bloody, embarrassing pieces.
Now we are hearing loud cries of ‘off with his head’. It seems that Gordon Brown will not be shifted from the office he waited ten years (at least) to hold. Now, if David Miliband is ejected in the suggested Cabinet reshuffle to come- it seems there is indeed a high price to be paid for not painting the roses red.
There have been strong messages that people DO want the sort of change David Miliband wrote of in his article, both openly and covertly. Even if some people in the wonderful land of wonderland, where expenses flow and smoking is permitted indoors, don’t want a change of leadership-shouldn’t it be opened up to the people to vote? Gordon Brown and his people seem to know better than any of us of course, and insist he is the right man for the job. It makes me a little nervous that he will never call a general election.
If Labour stay as stubborn as this then they may as well hand over the keys to number 10 over to David Cameron with compliments of Gordon Brown. To say that they are sleepwalking into political oblivion is probably an understatement. To have a government with ten years of some success, but more memorably, huge mistakes and now to do nothing to help the UK’s most vulnerable or accept some fundamental changes- is surely kicking New Labour into the long grass and out of government for many years to come.
