love more consume less

so its that time of the year again wen society tries to make us feel like we have to buy loads of stuff to prove to ppl we love dem. the deal is this... whilst around the world there are nearly 30,000 children dying every single day from poverty, hunger, easily preventable diseases and illnesses, and other related causes we in the uk n the rest of the western world spend obscene amounts of money and consume obscene amounts of food n drink. fuk em innit fuk the starvin n the homeless as long as we're all ok here. nearly everything that ppl buy 4 xmas is prolly made in a sweat shop in china or somewhere. so as well as not carin about the poor n the hungry we r also helpin to keep ppl being exploited.... happy dayz :) in case u r wonderin no i dont do xmas but i have done in the past due to the pressure from society n family more than mi own personal opinion. thank fuk im now strong enough not 2 b a sheep... baaa :)

learn 2 fukin drive lol

y is there so much road rage? i'll tell u y cos half the ppl on the road cant fukin drive properly n the rest of us spend our time havin 2 avoid these idiots. heres a tip on how to spot these ppl... go 2 a busy petrol station n watch who has to fill up at a pump that is on the same side as their tank. these ppl who cant even position their car so as they can fill up at any pump are the ones. also watch ppl on duel carriageways these ppl r the ones that if they r goin to turn right at the nxt roundabout or junction have to move in2 the outside lane 5 miles before they actually get to the turning. so the other day some woman tries to run me off the road as shes movin in from the outside lane... hasn't even seen me n even wen i beeped her she seemed oblivious to anything. som ppl think they're the only ones on the road. its frustratin.. its scary n its annoyin... give these ppl push bikes please :)

its all about me wen i was ikkle :)

floods... the aftermath

so the house is finally being sorted after the flooding :) it has been a weird time since the 20th july. at first although we were kind of livin upstairs we could still use the downstairs but on 22 oct the downstairs was gutted completely n since then we have been totally upstairs all the time. im used to livin in one room now n infact i like it. i dont need much n everything i do need is in one room. i guess i'll b alright wen i get a truck n wont miss the space of a house lol the disruption has been immense tho not havin a sink or washin machin or any surfaces to prepare food on in the kitchen has been a nitemare. the strangest thing tho is that we have lost our communal space in the house n so lee is in his bedroom n im in mine n we jus pass on the stairs sometimes! that has been very strange and altho obviously he is growin up now n so wont b spendin much time wit me it has been forced n its odd :( dunno if anyone can understand wot i mean lol anyway below is som pics of the h

dreadzone in shrewsbury

on saturday me n si went to shrewsbury for the last nite of the dreadzone tour. after nearly an hour drivn round the back streets of the town we did eventually find our hotel. after a cuppa n smoke we headed off to meet the rest of the dread forum posse in a pub down the road. from there we went to the buttermarket a nice little venue i have been to a couple of times before. the line-up was cosmo, the anomalies, sicknote n dreadzone. we missed the lovely cosmo who i did speak to at the bar he did a few gigs for the fight the pipe campaign back in the summer. i didn't really hear the anomalies as we were outside havin a smoke n chat with people but we made sure we were back inside for sicknote. most definatly the best punky/alternative band around at the moment. i had caught them for the first time at workhouse festival in june n was lookin forward to seein them again. they didnt disapoint n took us on a bizaar journey of musical fusion :) of course the headline act was the mighty d

rat day @ the ace cafe

on sunday me n si went to the ace cafe for rat bike day. it was a bit of a wet and windy ride there and there wasn't many people there due to the weather.... hum.... in my youth when i was a scooter girlie a bit of bad weather never put us off and we didn't even have waterproof trousers. me thinks some of these rat bike people must be pussys lol anyway at least i do know what a rat bike is due to being a scooter girlie lol so we had a cuppa n a sandwich, wandered round, took some photos, had another cuppa, took some more photos and went home :) si tells me where to go lol... si on his bike... these are all rat bikes... me n si in the ace cafe... i don't know much about rat bikes but this one was my favourite...
