I spent last weekend away at Thorpe Park Ministry Of Sound (MOS) event. Which meant a special deal of a Park Ticket for Saturday with Sunday free, accesss to late night riding on Saturday night, and the Ministry of Sound event also on Saturday night from 11-3am. Plus, a one night stay at the DoubleTree for Hilton Woking Hotel, that has a formula one car and an awesome breakfast with comfortable rooms. All for £110, which was amazing value for money. I also had to pay for some of the car parking at Thorpe Park, that was £7 a day, and give the person I went with £50 in petrol money, and buy food and snacks. I still think it was great value – despite being told I am being made redundant from my day job, only the day before; the day before the trip. Told on a Thursday and trip was on Sat. I was super excited to be going and I went on 3 rides I had never been on before, including Saw, the Swarm, and Derren Brown’s ghost train – which was why I bought the mug and it was a fantastic virtual reality experience.

Sadly, I went with a guy I was dating for almost two whole months, and his behaviour was not that of a loving, caring and attentive individual who was into me, but the opposite. Without going into everthing on here. On Saturday day, I was the one who was mostly instigating the affection. I felt ignored in the club after he initially mentioned about a meeting point if we get split up, as soon as we arrived. So it became obvious from the onset that he was not thinking about dancing together. An hour and a half later of almost being ignored in the club and I spoke to him about it, he said to me he preffered to dance on his own. He treated me like just a mate who he happened to have gone with him, both then, and the day after in the park. But my friends treat me better, because they care about me, love me, want to talk to me, and hug me just as a friend. Something happened after the club that was potentially dangerous for me too (not anything sexual – he was respectful of my asexuality and boundaries), and he told me on Saturday day not to trust him. So I broke off seeing him completely the day we got back to Exeter. I realised there were no advantages or benefits to me seeing this guy at all. Yes, I cared for him deeply, but it would seem that in the end, it was a one way street, and I would have had a better time on my own or with a friend who would appreciate me and love spending time specifically with me. So yes, I am still a bit sad but I am also glad to have got away from a situation and person who is blatantly no good for me. He, on the other hand, probably does not care. But I am a caring person and can see some good in almost anyone, but thank goodness I have seen the light.

Always remember how precious you are and so is your life and time. Remember that I love you xx

As always, write soon and stay quirky.

When I went to London in October I went to Shrek Adventureland after my two day seminar was finished. I went twice. Here are some photos from the first time I went.

 

Enjoy and stay Quirky

Hi everyone

Today I was out and about again, and it was a glorious day at the Devon County Show.

The show is great for networking, finding out about the latest trends in the arts and crafts and getting help.

I spoke to a self-published author who illustrates his own books, and a guinea pig expert. I also bought a small canvas print and card from my favourite local artist Simon Clarke.

Thanks for sticking with me. I am way behind with my video publishing and some blog posting.

Take care of you, keep writing and keep believing in you.

Bristol Zoo Bugs Life from the Cute to the Creepy – Valentine’s Day Video three


This video, Bristol Zoo Bug’s Life from the Cute to the Creepy, was taken on Valentine’s Day as part of my International Celebrate Being Single Day celebration, at Bristol Zoo’s Bug’s World. It is the third in the series and is a behind the scenes tour. Check out the cute Peacock Mantis Shrimp. It’s my favourite bug. It’s adorable.

I hope you are as captivated by the buggy beauty as me.

Sensational New Announcement:

Andy Harrington - Public Speaker's Academy - Passion Into Profit book
Andy Harrington – Public Speaker’s Academy – Passion Into Profit book

I am going to London for 2 nights Mon 30th – Wed 1st April, for a Stand and Deliver Speaker Training course with Andy Harrington, the World’s Expert Leading Speaker Coach. I have got his Passion into Profit book and it’s amazing. By reading Andy’s book, I now know why I wasn’t meant to publish my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book last year, because I need to write and tell my story at the front of the book.  So I still have to do this. Everything happens for a reason, it’s just whether we choose to see it or not. My intuition told me that last year I was not ready to publish it because I needed to build my websites first. I still have some more to build. Once my websites are finished, my book will be my priority, followed by more how-to books for my Quirky Books e-book store. I am so very excited and cannot wait to share all of the upcoming writing news with you, as it unfolds.

There will be about 100 people attending the Stand and Deliver Speaker training course, and it will be being filmed. While in London I am also meeting an online friend on Mon and Tues evening and we are going to Chessington World of Adventures theme park on Wed. He hasn’t been to a theme park before, only a themed aquarium, so it should be good. Yes, I have spoke to him on the phone and via Skype, safety is important.

Keep embracing your quirky and write soon

Who Else Loves Michael Flatley’s Lord Of The Dance?


Hi everyone

I still have so much to share with you from my holiday to Disneyland Paris, that included a two night stay in London. Here are my photos from Michael Flatley’s Lord Of The Dance, that I saw in London with my cousin. It was amazing, and I managed to get a sneaky photo of Michael himself!
