Week 150, Saturday 29th April until 5th May 2017.

Misfits Mid-Life Crisis Adventures in East & Central London, Essex & Surrey (The NEXT Chapter).

Week 150 Saturday 29thApril until Friday 5thMay 2017.


This is the 150th So-Called Blog, even I can’t believe I have written this shiz every week.  The reason I decided to celebrate now, is just in case I don’t make it to week 200.

There are two reasons I write this rubbish weekly.  One, in the future my niece and nephews will be able to read about what they’re mad fat aunty got up to while they were young.  Plus they will see pictures of themselves which in most cases makes them look like the responsible human sitting next to their aunty who is gurning like a loon.  And Two, if I’m lucky to live to a great age sitting in a nursing home slumped in front of daytime TV in a puddle of my own filth.  My niece and nephews might be able to find time in there busy schedules to visit and read some of this shiz to me, which might spark a memory and relieve me from the hell of daytime TV for a few moments.

My thinking behind this week was to have a look back at some of the pictures of people and memories over these last 150 weeks.  Last week when I was uploading the blog for week 149 I noticed that I was running out of space which stores the pictures on the blog site.  After thinking about this for a couple of moments, I made the easy decision to delete a number of old images.

It was only after I had posted the blog that I noticed a problem.  The lovely banner picture taken in Mozambique looking towards the city of Maxixe with a beautiful sunset in the background had been replaced.  Instead there was a picture which I didn’t recognise, that’s when the penny dropped.  I quickly looked back at the Blog archive and sure enough all the pictures that I had deleted had been removed from the actual weekly posts.  This really has annoyed me and as my poor suffering best friend Aunty MOZ has pointed out using the words of the great Vic and Bob “You wouldn’t let it lie!!“.

As a result of my computer incompetence I cannot now present pictures going back to week 1.  But I can still show nice images going back a couple of years, pictures that mean a lot and tell the story of this Mid-Life Crisis that I am continuing to go through.

All I can say is THANK YOU for reading this rubbish, I do look at the stats and it does make me happy to see that people have clicked and had a peep from all over the world.  I realise this ramble doesn’t mean very much in the grand scheme of life, but it helps make me feel creative.

    I have got 1,000,000,000 things to do at work at 7:01 but am taking the time to read your touching and emotional blog. I could say i’m being lazy or i could compliment you (which you may poo-poo away….not referencing the ‘puddle of filth @ the nursing home 🙂 as you always dismiss compliments. The way in which you share your life w/the world in a way as to make one reflect on their own lives and ‘what’s it all about…’, i’ll leave out alfie, is like going to life church and hearing a sermon from a great preacher who knows so much but admits to their on frailities at the same time. Lovely pics of your recent past including the one from the place we met at Croydon council (not just because you’ve included a pic of the black American with glasses leaning in). You smile in all your photos so it warms my heart that no matter what challenges you face, your love of life in all its glory and/or pain will see you thru. Thanks again for the enormous effort doing this lovely written blog as it must be alot of work (so sorry about the lost pics….love and hate these computer things!) . Hoping you feel the love and spirit of the earth force when dealing with the recent challenges which i also will be doing as we have been blessed with another day to ponder, cry, laugh and make our mark on this crazy world even if in some small way the ego folks might not notice.
