Having an internet radio means that you can access some 6,500+ stations from around the world. We were listening to the aftermath reports from Dominica last night, this morning we're listening to Jamaica. Dean has not hit them yet, and the announcer sounds calm, but you can sense a terrible undercurrent of fear. Joking aside of how incredibly laid back most Jamaicans are (moving in a slow hurry today) or the weather forecasts (its gonna get a bit windy out there) I am very nearly on the verge of tears. They are coming through so loud and clear they could only be just up the road. The faith that is pouring forth from so many of them just makes me realise how blessed I am, when so many Jamaicans are worrying about food, water and even their homes. God bless each and every one of them, they will be on my mind for the next 24 hours and beyond.

A bit of Burberry

According to this I am 18% chav.

Thank goodness for that.

Oh my gosh I feel like a teenager....

In the August edition of "Getting Away With Murder", written by my very favourite author, Mike Ripley, he mentions ME!!!!

I sorta would like to get in contact with him to thank him for the birthday wishes and ask him when he's going to get Fitzroy to change a few nappies. I think though it's going to remain a happy memory, and use it as encouragement to make some headway with "Echoes".

Thank you "The Ripster" if you read this. You made this stalker very happy :-)

The life of Fi

I've decided to keep personal life away from this blog and just keep this one for occasional humour or a shout about stuff going on in the world that's bugging me. I set up "The Thing Is...." yesterday. Not using full names there, and besides it is mainly a very personal blog for general review of my attitudes on a day to day basis. Friends or pyschiatrists may be interested but I somehow think that it will remain the 82% of the web that never gets read, and frankly that's probably all for the best.
