Tuesday 8th of November 2011. Crawley. by Nevis on Tue Nov 08, 2011 8:43 pm
Got up at half past 8 today as I have 2 days off :-D Ignored the carnage in the kitchen and did some work on a few trees. Dunked myself in the bath at 11 am only to find that the water was set to heat up again at 1.00pm so no chance of a top-up. Got out of the bath around half 12. Just finished wrapping a towel round my head when my son Jamie knocked the door "Just came round to chill" he said, and plugged himself into his laptop. He has a good job. He's off to set up the sound and visuals in a few days for the table tennis tournaments for the Olympic games in London. Did some more family tree stuff for young Bex. :thumbsup Welcomed hubby home from work, went shopping. Cooked hunters chicken for dinner. Minaz came round to chill. Djody (son) came round to chill. Lee (Son) came...

My writing story by Anonymous on Wed Dec 14, 2011 10:09 pm
My ambitions to be a writer probably started when I was in my teens. You may remember we wrote 'compositions' at school consisting of a beginning, a middle and a end. Not much different today.

In 1964 I was a student at Sandgate High School, a beachside suburb north of Brisbane in Queensland Australia. Our English teacher was Mr Imoff. I remember we wrote a story about a topic he gave us. I was never understood learning English. I understood the meaning of a 'noun' and 'verb' but all of the other learnings were almost non-existant. I wanted to write my way.

After he gave us a topic I wrote what I thought I should write, in my own words, about the topic. After we handed the piece of writing to him, he came to me and said, 'you have a gift for writing. You write the way you speak which is unique.'

I didn't know if he was praising my writing or telling me I needed have to learn English. Anyway, this was my initial introduction to becoming a writer. Looking back at the time I wish he would've...

mzawf update by dub on Wed Jun 22, 2011 6:56 am
Hello,
Currently we are 50% in on our site upgrade :thumbsup by that I'm saying that mzawf has lots of new features that require configuration and also testing out how they will work within the mzawf concept :applause. This blog page being one of the new features :yes As blogging is a concept I have little experience of and therefore it might be be said that I am a complete novice, methinks though that maintaining a blog is little like writing ones diary and then sharing it with any person who wishes to read it :mrgreen: Anyway in the meantime here at mzawf HQ we will continue to iron out...

The Earps of Staffordshire. by Nevis on Mon Nov 07, 2011 9:40 pm
Got home from work, cleaned up last nights carnage in the kitchen and sat down to wait for the 'Virgin' repair man. Again. He came and checked the box, then fixed the telephone that he believe's got dis-connected by one of the dogs during a 'freaking out' session due to the fireworks. I'm saying nothing. :shock:
Spent the rest of the day looking for Earps in Forton, Staffordshire for a friends family tree. There are so many of them! :duh
Had some vino and settled down (after bangers and mash) to watch retro X Factor and Time Team. :thumbsup
