Scotty the Cat, episode 4 – the final chapter

Scotty is now terrified of our house. The number of empty rooms and cardboard boxes left lying around the place has made him freak out a little bit, and he can’t stand the sound or even the threat of cardboard boxes being moved around. I think it might be because he loves climbing in and …

Systematic chaos

Currently our entire house smells of dusty cardboard, old plastic, bubble-wrap and industrial-strength cleaning solution. It is unbridled insanity over here. Removal men have been round for the last couple of days doing what I believe gives them their name – removing stuff from the premises. And by jove they’re fast. The house has been …

Quick Aus update

Just some really quick things pertaining to the Australia situation. We said our last goodbyes to the family a couple of days ago. It was a nice final reunion. We’ve sold one of our cars for a good price (but still lower than what we paid for it but that’s the nature of auctions, really). …

Going to see the family for the last time

Tomorrow we’ll be heading down to Walton-on-Thames and Surrey (which is unfortunately a 3-hour car journey at the best of times) to see our relatives for the final time before we head out to Aus. It’s going to be emotional. I’m not looking forward to leaving everyone 9000 miles behind me. 150 miles (the distance …

Make the nasty thing go away.

A few posts down I wrote how I accidentally offend people nearly all the time. It’s so terribly awkward and un-fun. I don’t try to be a bad guy, but it seems I just am. However, this time I’m just going to say what I think. I don’t care if you’re offended, because the issue …

Countdown to Australia: 2 weeks.

Second “Australia Countdown” video uploaded to my Vlog Channel. This one’s totally tardy but I explain why (kinda) in the video.

Seeing this guy live tomorrow

Super excited. This guy‘s one of the funniest comedians I know. He’s definitely up there with Dara O Briain and possibly Billy Connolly. 😀 Also WordPress just said “dope” to me. Don’t you act like you’re cooler than me, you freakin’ blog.

Scotty the Cat, episode 3

Just a quick one this time, but it’s pretty significant. We finally know about Scotty’s actual owners. He was lifted from his regular hour-or-seven morning nap on my bed and taken to the vet this morning by my parents, on account of a swollen foot. We’d not seen how it had happened so we had …
