Non telly stuff including my 40th birthday.

Well that's the telly stuff by now, so just some chat now.

I haven't done a blog since before my birthday. I will start this from Friday and the busy day before the party. I was up at 6am to head to Ayr at 8am (yes I know that's early).

Got back to Cumnock 11am after echo and already had something to put on website. So did that and went and saw mum who was up in barshare. Got news about Arran being off (I wasn't going anyway) and updated FB. Got home and had more news to update. I was tired. I got lunch from coffee pot and went home. I had a snooze for an hour as I was heading to club from 430pm. Got visited at 3.30 and got ready to head down. Was usual to 7pm and then watched Glasgow v Exeter on my phone with jungle. It was at that point I definitely knew after a busy Friday I needed to pace myself Saturday (the party).

So Saturday I watched Man City v Arsenal on BT Sport at home (it was a great game). Picked the shirt I was wearing. Watched fitba scores going in. I got ready around 5.00pm and was down just before 7.00pm. The 2nd team had won that day which was good. Most people were in club by 8.30. It was a great night, most people enjoyed it I think. The problem I kinda had was seeing everyone. For everyone that gave me a card I handed it to bar staff to keep hold for me. I think there was about 60/70 there including some coaches, senior players, family, the phamphs (my quiz team at royal Tuesday nights). I didn't check most of the cards Saturday night, I did that Sunday morning. A big thank you to everyone who gave me cards, money. Thank you! Amie Dunlop did the cake 
 Also thank you to Alex Dunsmuir for the speech about little old me (sorry it's just on facebook). Also the folk round club had contributed for a present for me. Now a few days earlier Tober had asked me about tablet computers and I told him what I thought. So Morton gave me a iPad mini at the party. A 64gb wifi one. How can I put it, I am typing it on my iPad mini. At 1130 Blair finished the music and I think I had sat for 20 minutes in total, so I was tired. Now some people may think I'm a bit of a party pooper leaving then with folk in bar. I thought it might make it easier for staff. It didn't,  it closed at 1am as I discovered.

Next morning I was at training so that plan worked. Tuesday I went to Kilmarnock to cinema and it was ok. Worst bit was waiting for bus home. If was 1505 bus I was waiting for. Now last bus before that left 1415 and so a lot of people were waiting for it and it went in wrong stance so after waiting for a long time. I was in back of bus. I was glad when I got home. Quiz that night was good as well.

Wednesday was quiet and rest of week I have been able to pace more.

So I hope everyone has a happy Christmas and see you about.


Television stuff to start today

Well I think I had better do 2 blogs today. Well I am starting with STV News and all this is about dark chocolate with Gordon Chree having to eat some So John and Raman had loads of words about it. I am also going to say now on Saturday I saw Anchorman 2 at Ayr and enjoyed it. Now I turned over to BBC Scotland and Christopher Blanchett was talking about upcoming winds (and yes when I was outside today it was windy). Now I was just going to do guys on today blog only but the St Johnstone vs Celtic story got my interest. Last night Celtic had said the ban was lifted. The ban was lifted this afternoon and I could see Jane Lewis getting some bad comments so I added Jane to this blog. I dont like to see journalists getting slagged for doing their jobs as you could see with Wendy Hurrell earlier in the year. Bye for now.
