Ordinary Life

Hey people how are you all ? I hope you are all well, I can tell you it has not been an exciting week, just mainly work based and nothing exciting happened out side of work. What have you all been up to?

At the moment it is 16/11/2018 and it is 13:07 in the afternoon and it is my day off and I am also having a cheeky glass or two of wine with diet coke. The diet coke added does sweeten the wine up and also tastes nicer as well. I have tried to sort out my diet for when I work out in the gym.  I have ordered 14 containers of high protein meals for the price of 10 which cost me £35 including delivery and each meal is about 300 calories each. They do taste good and I got them from Muscle Foods.

This evening I have a kickboxing session, in the session which is a 1-2-1, I will be learning more on how to teach a class and dealing with difficult students. Soon I will be able to teach my own private classes or group sessions, then I have to decide where I am going to do my classes. These classes are not about fitness, mental focus and working on the movements and techniques, it not about who is better or who has the hardest kick or punch, or punching the hell out of each other. 

I have got a workout frame, with this frame you can do chin ups, dips and legs raises along with press ups and sit ups. It is a great bit of  kit to have but as time goes on I have found I am using it less and less. I need to get my mind set to not just working out in the gym but also at home too. In the past I have done the Insanity workout DVD’s at home but now I live somewhere else I don’t have enough room in my lounge to try the DVD any more. I would be nice to live in a big enough house to do some workouts at home every now and again. Well I start with my diet getting in order then find other ways to work out .

The other day I was in the garden and all of a sudden I heard moaning coming from the house opposite me. I started laughing as the moaning got loader. I had a look around but could not see anything. Tell me the truth who wouldn’t of looked around? Plus the other day I was walking to work and there was a woman getting dressed in her window up stairs and she actually saw me but she carried on, seems she didn’t care anyone seeing her in just a pair of women’s knickers. As I was late for work I carried on walking and the funny thing is a I looked up as I walked of she waved, this did make me laugh. 

As I said there has not been a lot happening to me lately, is it I am lonely and sad or I just need to get out more? Comments wont offend, well I hope they wont. Well I am going now and hope you are all well and things are looking up.  I am doing well and the only thing I would like is to become famous, who wouldn’t , I don’t mean rich but just famous for something I do, but not that famous. 

Stay safe people and be good to one another, Don’t let people bother you, and just walk away.

Good evening folks, I hope you all ok and had a good weekend. Who went out to see a fire works display, hopefully everyone came home ok. 

Well I had a lovely week end, it started on Friday  as it was my day off as was Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday I got up late which was about 10:30 in the morning and felt so good that I slept this long , so when I got up and had breakfast I headed off to the gym. This  consisted of a heavy weights work out with chest, shoulders, back, abbs, legs and dead lifts. The whole work out lasted for about 1 hour and 15 minutes with a 15 minute cardio of 1 minute fast run and then a minute walk . In the evening I went to kickboxing to learn more about teaching people and how to break down the moves and punches and also using the techniques. 

On Saturday I was taken to Cadbury’s World, which was I can tell you ‘amazing’. I can’t remember the last time I went if I ever had been, but I did enjoy myself . I had tones of chocolate, which I don’t tend to eat anyway and by the end of the day I felt sick. I went into the 4D cinema there which was fun, then into the tour around and had more chocolate around the factory. 

 

 

There was a huge chocolate spider which was looking delicious. The car looked great and we saw Berty Bassett but I wasn’t brave enough to have a photo taken with him. I know I am a big kid, well I felt like it . The whole day must of lasted about 3-4 hours in all. The only bad thing is it takes about 1 hour 30 minutes. When I got home with the person I was with we had another hot chocolate with no cream but had small marshmallows and after that I really felt sick and sick of chocolate but dam didn’t it taste good.

Sunday I had to kill it at the gym and wasn’t it difficult and a felt so stuffed still and a little bloated too. but to be honest, it not that bad if you have a blow out on rubbish food once in a while surely?.

Well I hope you all have had a great weekend as me. But I did work it off the next day. Well be nice to people. If someone gets in your face and starts to say bad things about you. Try just saying OK or yes that’s right and smile. Remember they are just words and they only have meaning if you give them meaning.  So smile at the person and agree, then the only person that will look silly is the other person.

Stay safe.

Well people how are you all? I hope you are good.

I have not been up to much as I have had a long week at work, 5 shifts of 12 hours each and over the weekend it can be very long. There has not been a lot going on really, so there is not much to write about this time. I did have a great session in kickboxing learning how to teach and ways of engaging people that appear not to be doing great in a session, this was a real eye opener. 

I started looking for different music to listen to and to chill out to. I have found out I have a great liking for country music. Mainly KANE BROWN, a young man who I think is 24 yrs old and with his voice…..dam killer…..I have watched some of his videos he posts out there too. 

Kane Brown

I have gone out to get his music and this is the only one I can get in my town. Believe me when I say it is a great CD. I have watched some of his videos he posts and he seems to be so much for his fans, getting them up on stage in concert. What he did for his mums birthday and he video it was awesome. He seems to be a very humble man and doesn’t seem to be one of those men that has let fame go to his head. His music to me has that feeling of no matter how bad ya day has been it doesn’t matter remember your friends. 

well that’s all I have for now. Did say it was short this time. But I do recommend that you even try listening to his music, my favourite tracks are Heaven, What If, and What’s Mine is Yours.

Remember people be nice to people, no matter what they say to you, at the end of the day what they say are only words. Words only hurt you or offend you if you give meaning to what they say, so don’t give them meaning, they are just words. To many people now days are to easily offended by what people say or do, those people are only offended because they are feeding into what the other person says. Just laugh at them and walk away. 

Stay safe, look after the loved ones and keep real. Remember they are just words. 

LOVE YOU ALL.

Good morning everybody, how are you all?  I have had a week off from work and it was glorious. Now this is my first week back at work and I am running the shifts, what a start to the week. We have had a week of new starters at work and this means lots and lots of ID badges for the new staff and explanations about policies and procedures. 

Well I went to the gym today and tried to do some cardio, due to an injury I got some how, a week and a half ago I got a pain in my ankle, then it spread to the top of my foot and up the right side of my shin. It only hurts a little when I run or walk and basically move my foot. I can put weight on it or if I stand on it with no pain or discomfort, I’m not sure if my foot is bruised a little but it is a little swollen a little bit. I have taken painkillers and anti inflamitaries

Well it has been a while, since I have been on here and it has been a little busy for me. I have had a birthday which was quiet as usual, but the good thing is my parents came over to visit me on my birthday, even though it was only about 45 minutes to an hour. The main thing is that I saw them, no time is better than no time. In the afternoon my girlfriend came over and for my birthday and got me an amazing present(which I was not expecting) she got me a TV for the bedroom, I was over whelmed with what she got me.

For the week of my Birthday I booked a week off work and it was amazing, I have been to the gym and tried a new workout. It is HIIT cardio for 15 minutes and medium weights but each rep was done slowly, so I done reps really slowly and I found out I could not do as many reps with my usual reps. But I do feel the burn more and more and have started to bulk a little more. My diet has been small but often so I eat about 4-5 times a day but low carbs. I have kept the cardio down to a minimal due to an injury to my ankle, I did not slip, trip or fall. I feel pain in my ankle and yes it is a little swollen and a little painful but manageable, I feel pain in the left leg, left side of my shin, ankle and left side of the top of my foot. It is ok when I don’t walk but starts to hurt when I walk but not to bad. I have taken pain killers and anti-inflamitaries but with no effect.

I did go out for a few drinks on Friday night for a few birthday drinks, I arranged drinks with people I woke with but only my team leader turned up, one bloke couldn’t because his wife was working so he had to look after the kids which is cool. One bloke had family issues and others did not reply or turn up. I did have a good night having a few drinks with my boss, nice catch up and a great laugh. 

At the moment I am drinking Jack Daniels with ice and watching The big Bang Theory while typing. funny as and Sheldon singing with friends mom. Plus I have been studying about kickboxing, studying styles and combinations. this links in with trying to keep fit , I have tried to bulk up a little and now it is time to cut down and lose a little fat in my body. I would love a body to show a little muscle and be able to have  photo shoots, for a laugh. It would make me feel confident I think. 

Now it is Sunday 21st October and it is 18:57 and just cooked food for work tomorrow which consists of pasta and spag bol, plus also chicken salad, that would be two spag bol and one chicken salad. Plus I will have a slim fast shake for breakfast  and snack. I now it going to be difficult as people can be difficult at work and right now I am totally chilled from work. Plus I may go to the gym after work  or do a work out at home with my chin up frame. 

Well I hope everyone is ok, I have missed writing but in my mind set I have to try and alter things. I hope everyone is ok. please feel free to message me . Stay safe and be aware, look after yourselves. Love you all

Good day to you all, I hope you are all well. 

Well today was interesting so far and it is only 14:32 so far. I just been up the local shop (co-op) and got a bottle of white wine with 7up to make a spritzer or two. On the way back there was a man speaking or should really say shouting in another language at people. He was staggering along the street as he shouted at people but did not come across as aggressive at the minute. One lad across the street was shouted at and he called back ‘who you shouting at?’ . then as I passed him he went to high five me but also grabbed my right arm. I turned and said ‘what the hell’? , he said something in a language I did not understand and then pushed me on the right shoulder. I stood my ground and asked him what his problem was and he raised his hand up, I thought he was going to hit me so I stepped back and kicked him in the stomach  know a front kick. as he went down I turned and walked off quite quickly as I am not one for fights. I would rather run than fight unless it vital to stand. 

Well all I can say about work is, it has been busy with new staff starting and people going missing. but busy is always good as it makes the time go quicker. My kickboxing sessions have been going well. I am getting on top of reversing punches, which is one of my difficulties at the minute but I am getting through it. But there are times where I think I wish I could teach my own classes. When I get my Black Belt I will go under my instructors name and his insurance until I get established then go my own way. But the thing is, out of respect for my instructor I will keep his class name and his name for chief instructor. I do enjoy my classes and so look forward to teaching fitness and kickboxing all in one.

I have found lately that people are becoming more and more selfish in society. For example I was walking into town today and a saw an elderly woman walking with a stick and she was walking slowly. I was walking behind her and she stopped walking and asked me to come by, I said to her ‘no carry on I am not in a hurry’. So she turned and carried on, then two idiots barged passed her and nearly knocked her to the floor. I jumped forward and tried to grab the old lady, to stop her falling over, just in time. I shouted at the two idiots and told them to show respect, plus a few choices of bad language. As I did this the two idiots turned and started getting confrontational with me, here we go again, I seem to attracted these types of people. Then from no where a police officer came from somewhere and stepped in. The look on these two idiots faces was priceless. This police officer was built like a brick shit house, muscles everywhere and turned towards these idiots and basically told them to apologise and walk away. To be fair if he told me to jump I would ask how high. lol

Well I am chilling right now and watching a movie on Netflix Ouija: Origin of evil, Not to bad but not scary at all. I still also still looking for a new job, something exciting, and more demanding to ask for. Something that will push me to my limits and make me better mentally and physically.

Today is my day of rest and maybe I will hit the gym later as I have just completed four challenges in four months, run or walk 100-125-150-200 miles in a month. maybe next month I will try cycling the same distances as well. Just to get my fitness better, even though I go kickboxing once a week and the gym three to four times a week I need to concentrate on my diet to strip the body fat away , just a little.

Well I am off now and I will try and get back to you all later on this weekend. I hope everyone is well and please feel free to leave me a message. ask me if there is anything you would like to discuss, and I will do my best to help out.

Take care and stay safe no matter where you are.

It has been a while since I have been on here I suppose, I did think I had myself sorted but work been so busy and trying to go to the gym and kickboxing I am actually feeling worn out lately. I do actually think I am not eating enough through the day to fuel my body. Common mistake from what I hear around. So I have looked up what I need to do is up my carbs a little more, so I am starting to up my carbs as from today and I will see how it goes and if it doesn’t get better then I suppose I will go to the doctors to get advice. 

Work has been good lately and I have started to be the one running the shift more and more, all I can say is it has been interesting. only time will tell on this. What I have also been doing is looking for a new job to see what is on the horizon. Don’t get me wrong I love my job but I am looking for something I can climb the ladder with. I was sitting back and wishing I had more courage when I was younger and joined the police I would have aimed to join the armed police force and maybe tried to go higher something in the anti terrorism department I think it is called SCO19. This would be in my eyes an exciting job and an adrenalin filled job too. I have looked at the NCA at their jobs and it seems you have to be a police officer already. I did try to start with the specials in the police force but after passing the interviews and assessments I got told I am not able to join because I used to have seizures, so this stopped me joining. so was not happy about it. I have looked at Security, anything in security, I have looked at intelligence of any kind, finally at the MOD as well. I was sometime looking at applying for armed police officers for the MOD and no previous experience needed. So wish I had gone for that one. you snooze you lose is suppose.

I am going to keep looking and I believe something will come up for me. I have had a chilling weekend as I am actually feeling a little drained after  kickboxing Friday night and then the gym early Saturday morning. So I went for a walk around town on Saturday and as usual I went to my favourite coffee shop and had a large cappuccino with an extra shot and a ham and cheese panini. As I sat there eating and drinking I start to people watch , young families, old couples , sweet seeing them walk hand in hand as the waddle down the street smiling and talking. I was walking up the main high street and a group of young idiot kids pulling wheelies down the road pulling in front of cars. This did not go down well with the public and one woman stopped her car and shouted abuse at the kids, justified I would say. The little shits all crowded her car and they started getting mouthy at her. One lad pushed her back onto her car and then she smacked him in the face. He hit the floor like a sack of spuds. Some other members of the public came to her aid, not that it looked like she needed it, she had a stance like a fighter. The other people grabbed some of the louts and pushed them to the floor and told them quite harshly to go away. I can tell you I have never seen kids run so fast and one of them left his bike behind . Good on the woman nice slap too. This stupid dangerous stunt by kids is happening far to often in the town where I live and it will be the drivers that hit these idiots that will suffer for this. 

When I woke up Sunday morning I was aching so much I could hardly move and when I stood up I could feel my bones cracking all over , It did feel good though. So straight away I decided I was not going to go to the gym today as it would finish me off, rest day it is called. In fact I actually haven’t done much at all through the day so I have not got much to report for today. But one thing I am going to do is continue looking for jobs. I’ll be looking at the usual places, MOD and government websites, I need a more exciting job something that gets me thinking and looking at more things with an open mind. 

Well people I shall bid you a good day and hope you are all well, and stay safe out there people. There can be a few strange people out there and people you do not want to bump into when it starts to get dark. If you think someone is following cross the street and maybe walk back up the street and pop into a shop or a bar. If driving always keep a car distance between you and the car in front just in case you get some idiot trying to do road rage and that space will give you the distance to pull out and drive off. 

Good day people. stay safe.

 

Ordinary Day — September 13, 2018

Ordinary Day

Good day to you all, I hope you are all well and enjoying life. I am on my second day off today and in the next three days I will be working three 12 hours shifts, so that Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So I start at 07:00 and finish at 19:00 so this means as I walk to work I will get home about 19:30 and then I will have to cook food for the next day as well. I will not settle until about 20:00 but it is not to bad I do enjoy cooking. 

Well on my first day off I sadly woke at about 06:00 and could not settle down and go back to sleep. So I laid there looking through my social media on my phone, Facebook and Instagram for a while then played a few games on my phone, helps pass the time. Once I got up I made some breakfast which consisted of scrambled eggs and ham with some spring onions, delicious. Plus with this I had a few slices of crusty bread and a strong coffee. Once finished I got ready for the gym and wore my MyProtien gym wear and headed out the door. I went for a long walk around my local park and on my way around the park there was a few, what appeared to be drunks, a group of men staggering around and a few of them urinating in the bushes. The only thing wrong with that is there was a lot of people around the park and people off to work and school. There was also a few women out for a run as it is early and about 08:10. Heading into town I went to my favourite coffee shop (costa) and got my self a Cappuccino with an extra shot, then drank this as I walked to the gym. This must of took me about 40 minutes in all to get there, which is not to bad. 

Once set in the gym I started with a 30 minute run at a steady 10.5 pace and tried to set my mind straight so I did not get bored of running, I do tend to find usually I get bored after about 15 minutes but I managed ok this time. After my run I did my usual 9 holes but this time I did a 30-40 seconds run and then 2 minute walk as the treadmill raised and lowered, which did seem to go very quick. I went to do bench press set at 50kgs and managed only 3 sets of 10 reps. Once recovered I did leg raises, 4 sets of 20 leg raises which I do feel today. Moving on I did seated rows with weights set at 65 kg and managed 4 sets of 13 reps, which did take it out of me and finally moved on to shoulder press. With the shoulder press I managed 32.5kgs on both sides, I did do 12 reps and 4 sets. Finally I did 12 bicep curls with 4 sets and the weight was 25kgs. Once done which took about an hour at the gym, then I decided to walk the same way home which took me roughly about 35-40 minutes to get home. 

Once home I had a shower and got into my slobs, shorts and t-shirt and chilled. I made myself a milkshake from berries, milk, Greek yoghurt and a banana, filled me up for a short while, with this I decided to watch a film called Total recall. Once on the sofa watching this I suddenly woke up and as usual I had fallen asleep laying on the sofa and I had fallen asleep for a few hours. Once I finally woke up it was about 12:40 and I was starving but felt so tired and drained, I am feeling that a lot lately. To be honest I did have a good sleep not long after and I slept well in the night as well and I never sleep this much. It does feel good to catch up on your sleep.

When I went to bed finally and watched a movie I must of fell asleep while watching it, I had a weird dream again in the night. From what I can remember I was in bed and suddenly the quilt got tight around me and pinned my arms to my side. I started to float above my bed and then I could hear someone talking to me but could not make out what they was saying. I tried to call out ‘who is it’? but nothing came out, I tried this a number of times but still nothing. I floated down onto my mattress again and then there was a figure standing at the end of my bed. All I could see was a dark figure standing there and I could hardly make out their facial features but from the words I would hear I know it was a woman. This continued for what appeared to be another 10 minutes then the figure laughed and said see you soon and disappeared. Weird I know but that was just a dream……….. surely . Maybe I should get a Ouija board and see if there is a ghost trying to talk to me, funny idea I know. Any ideas on my dreams.

Well take it easy people. I hope you are doing well and please stay in touch .   

Ordinary Life — September 9, 2018

Ordinary Life

Good Afternoon everyone, how are you all doing? I hope you have had a great weekend. Mine was actually very quiet indeed, but that just suited me just fine. It gave me a chance to catch up on things around the house, like cooking food for the next couple of days, laundry and getting extra mileage at the gym, plus I even went to see my parents for a short while. I was also debating whether to go into town, but decided against it and I am actually glad as there appeared to be a bit of trouble in town last night (Saturday) as I head a lot a police and ambulance sirens going around the town. 

Well this morning I woke at about 06:40 as some selfish git drove up my street with a noisy stereo blaring out some sort of music with to much base. I appeared that I was not the only one it woke up, as I shouted for them to turn that shit down some bloke came out were the car pulled up and shouted at him to turn it off. The drive got out of the car and faced up to the bloke, the man said something to him and then pushed the driver onto his own car, this did make me laugh. Suddenly the drive did not appear to be so tough after all as he turned his music off. A woman came out of a house close were he was park and shouted at the drive what the bloody hell do you think you are doing and got into the passenger seat, which is when the car drove off. As the man turned he looked around and you can see the smile on his face. 

Once I had been awake for a while as I could not fall back to sleep I went to make myself a coffee and made some fried sausage meat and scrambled egg for breakfast, as usual I made to much to eat, so I saved it for when I came back from the gym and heated it up again. Once it got to about 07:30 I got ready for the gym and headed out. As I walked to the gym doing a warm up walk, you know the fast paced walk just enough to warm up and to get a little bit sweaty. Once at the gym I started off with a fast paced run set on a speed of 11 for 6 minutes running then walked for a minutes and did this for around 20 minutes. Once done I then started a walked called 9 holes which lasts for about 13-14 minutes at a pace of about 7-7.5 and the treadmill at set times goes up in angle or lowers in angle. After this had finished I can tell you I was very sweaty indeed  and a little wiffy. I then headed to where there are seated weights and worked on my shoulders, lifting 30kgs each shoulder, not to heavy, I walked over to the seated leg press and tried this, I can not remember what weight it was but my legs still ache from this morning and it is 19:00 at time of writing. I went into the free weights room and started on an incline bench press and started off with 25 kg’s each side then up it to 30 kg s each side, I definitely feel that in my chest at the minute. After this I got a kettle bell about 20 kg s and held it over my head and raised my shoulders off the ground and slowly lowered my shoulders back flat on the floor, this was done slowly with a count of 15 and I tried to do this 4 times and I can tell you it was a struggle. Once I got some stretching done I went to do some free dips which works your triceps and chest, which I managed about 4 lots of 10 dips, this actually felt like my chest was being torn apart. To finish off I did about 3 lots of 10 lateral pull downs at a heavy weight which I could barely manage.

Whilst walking home I got to a junction in the road and all of a sudden about 30-40 runners can running past in the road, the road had actually been closed off as there was a town half marathon going on. Once in town I headed to my favourite coffee shop ( Costa ) for a Latte with an extra shot, but unfortunately people were cueing out the door, so I went to the one in the shopping centre and it was the same, so I decided to leave it. As I got to the other side of town I came to the main road and yet again I came across the marathon runners again, so this took me a few minutes to get across the road. Once home I went straight into the shower and cleaned up and changed my clothes, as it was quite warm I decided to wear grey baggy shorts with a thin black t-shirt with red and white writing on it saying Pathfinder Martial Arts on the chest and sleeves. Once settled I made myself some fried rice and chicken but added garlic salt to it for flavour. As I ate this I watched a film called Serenity, a Sci-Fi film but quite funny in places, this film I think lead to the spin off of Firefly TV programme. Once I watched this it was time to head off to my parents house which is about a 30-40 minute drive away. On the way there I did manage to come across a few stupid and dangerous drivers, people overtaking on bends and at cross roads, plus people on their mobiles. What the hell is wrong with people doing stupid things like this behind a wheel of a killing machine. The thing is it will be the innocent people that will get hurt or worse and this courses so much upset in families, can they not see this. 

As I hit the town where my parents life a come across a place I used to work in the community and it had been torn down and apparently turned into a children’s home. After about five minutes of driving I arrived at my parents house and greeted by  their dog running over to me, bloody fur ball. For a change it was actually quite nice there, we sat and chatted for ages and my mum made me a sandwich of ham, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber and finally salad cream. It was blooming lovely too. The whole time I was eating my mums dog tried to get me to hand him some of my sandwich, which did not happen. While I was there I left my brother his birthday present and some birthday money as he was not going to around for at least another 4 hours. I stayed for a few hours then I had to depart as I needed to get some food shopping done and make my food for work for the next few days.

Unfortunately all I did after this was drive home and make my food for the next few days, first off I made pasta in a cheese sauce, with roasted chicken and sausage meat with plenty of melted cheese on top. Plus also I made a salad with the remaining meat and lemon juice squirted over it. Right now while typing this I am also watching Kingdom of Heaven with Orlando Bloom and Jeremy Irons. Not a bad film either. It will have to be an earlyish night for me tonight as I have work in the morning and I have to be up at 05:00 and be ready to leave the house for 06:00 to walk to work and be ready to start my shift for 07:00. I usually get there about 06:40 and that gives me time to change into my uniform and have a cup of tea and chill before I start. Cannot complain my job is easy and I do get paid well for what I do. 

Well I am off for now and hopefully my next few days at work will not be to bad and I will try and get back on here in between if I don not finish to late on my shifts. Take care everyone and do not work to hard. 

Ordinary Life. — September 8, 2018

Ordinary Life.

Good afternoon it is roughly 13:30 here in the UK  and the weather is, excuse language, crap here at the moment, raining enough but not to much. So I have not been able to go out for a run round my local park, or a long walk to the gym, so all I can do is watch movies, dam what a life . 

So last night I did go kickboxing with my instructor and had a lesson on how to use pads in a productive way. I learnt how to brake down the moves on a 6 count combination which consisted of Jab, Cross, Hook, block with the hook then, hook, hook, cross. For some reason I had trouble getting this combination, yes it is easy enough but then my instructor mentioned about fluid motion and demonstrated this. After a few attempts it sunk in to my muscle memory. During the session I took the warm ups which seem to of gone well and the warm downs. Apart from the combination I struggled with I demonstrated the six pinch combination which is Jab, Cross, Upper cut, Upper cut, Hook, hook. Then once the students got this we did a burn out of lead leg front kick then a cross then over head hook. After the session, myself and the instructor spoke about the way the session had gone and yes he was impressed even though it had been difficult for me. Giving me an ego boost. 

This Morning I woke up due to a night mare at about 05:50, which was not scary but it gave me a fright. I dreamt that I was laying in bed, suddenly the quilt became tight over me, as I thought I opened my eyes I could not speak or call for help. I looked to my left and then my mattress with me on it started to float around the room and all I could hear was laughing coming all around. Then the mattress landed back on my bed and to my left was a woman standing by my bed, she spoke a weird language but I seemed to understand her. When I tried to speak nothing would come out of my mouth but she responded to what I was trying to say. Then I had a pain in my head and the mattress flew around the room again and I was paralysed physically and verbally but I was talking to this woman. As the mattress landed I managed to turn to my left and it appeared to by my Gran but she was shouting at me in some strange language but I understood her, the only thing is I could not remember what it was she said. Weird I know but do not judge me.

Well after that stupid dream I decided to watch a movie to relax me and watched Shrek 2 and the next thing I know I am waking up in bed and it is 08:45 ish and felt like I had slept for ages but woke up stiff in all my joints and my throat was so sore. I am putting that down to a virus lol.

This morning I got up and shored and headed straight into town and went to costa for a medium cappuccino with an extra shot and a ham and cheese panini . Once I had this I went for a walk around town and got two DVD’s one called Red Sparrow, not as good as I thought it would be, also Alien Code which was not to bad really, gets you thinking.

I really don’t have much more to report at the minute, Little bit of a boring life I have at the minute but it is relaxing and I do what I want when I want . Just miss that closeness of falling asleep holding on to that special person. Waking up next to that special person for now. Hoping that will change soon. Thinking of going for a run later if the weather holds off but it does not look like it for now. Any way I will be back later, hope everyone has a great weekend and take care people. Thanks for reading my Ordinary Life.    

Ordinary Life — September 7, 2018

Ordinary Life

Good Day to you all, well I have had a busy few days at work, just little bits coming along all at once and when you down staff it gets just a little busy but we all got through it. Cannot really talk about work on here so I will move on to something different. 

Well today is my first of three days off and today I am taking it easy at the minute, well kind of. I was totally awake by 06:30 and felt like I had slept for two days. But once I was awake I went and had breakfast, my usual drink of strong coffee with milk and then instead of food I made a shake instead. It consisted of 3 heaped spoons of Greek yoghurt, handful of Blueberries, handful of Raspberries, 1 Banana, 1 large Orange, 250mls Soya milk and ice to make it cold. It was tasty as well. I decided to watch Iron Man 2 while I had breakfast and look through my Instagram and Facebook accounts. When it came to about 08:40 ish I got changed in to my gym gear and headed off to my local gym. But I did my usual thing of walking at a fast pace around the town before hitting the gym, I did stop off at my favourite coffee shop (costa) for a medium Latte with an extra shot to make it stronger.

As I get to the gym I change my T-shirt and go straight to the cardio area and do something called 9 holes, it consists of  setting your weight and level which I always set at the highest level and this lasts for about 14 minutes. Whilst this goes on the treadmill goes up and down at different angles. Once this was done I started to do flat jogging at an average speed of about 10.5 for about 8 minutes then a walk for 60 seconds then repeat the run then 60 second walk again, I did this for about 40 minutes which is roughly when I got bored of cardio. I then went and did some lateral pull downs, over head pulls with a dumbbell, bench presses, seated rows and bicep curls. Once I completed this  I had a 30 minutes walk home to finish off. Once I got home I decided to have a shower and then a nap for a short while.

I noticed on the way round to the gym that, how clear the rounds and streets were now the kids are back at school. There was hardly any young folk in town, mainly people going to a forth to work and home. People in a rush and people ambling along like they are in no hurry to get anywhere fast. People in suits and smart wear looking like they off to work in an office of some type. There are some people in gym wear, some jogging through the streets, looking all red faced, some with big bags draped over their shoulder looking like they are on the way to the gym or on way back. I come across a few homeless people sleeping in shop doorways and in alleys ways, and one or two of them are wondering/ staggering around and very red faced and to smelling to great, slurring their words as they talk to each other.

 Well after my nap, yes I feel old saying that, I make myself some food which was a chilli sausage sandwich and a big glass of squash with ice. Now I am just waiting for it to hit 19:15 then I will be walking to kickboxing session, where I may be teaching it or be partaking in the session. who knows. But I do like Kickboxing it gets you physically fit and focuses on you mental alinement. 

Time to have dinner so I will bid you a good day and hope you are all fine and I should be posting something tomorrow if I don not get to busy (joke), I will be hitting the gym in the morning I think so take care everyone. 

Ordinary Life — September 4, 2018

Ordinary Life

Good day to you all, how is everyone on this lovely day? I did not post yesterday as I was actually feeling very drained, truthfully I think it was because I had been to the gym but did not eat enough. More out going calories than what I had coming in. I now know I have to start eating much more calories to take in this month as I have signed up for something called Race Your Own Pace ,and I have to cover 200 miles this month. Plus I have kickboxing once a week and the gym as well, so more food needed. So today I have eaten something reasonably health every couple of hours (2-3).

This morning I was up at about 07:30 and could not be bothered to get out of bed, lazy or just tired? Well not long after I got up and showered and decided to make scrambled egg with ham and spicy sausage, dam it tasted good. Today had to be food shopping so needed to get a few necessities like different fresh meats, milk and gluten free bread and wraps, love the sweet potato wraps. Plus a few other things like real crusty bread, nothing better than a slice or two or real crusty bread and butter. The thing I find when I go shopping in a supermarket is the people become savages with no manners what so ever. I am sure I am not the only one that thinks this, it becomes a place where people lose their morals and understanding. For instance when I got there I collected my trolley I walked to the lift to go to the ground floor and as I got to the lift the woman closed the lift door on me and went down, the thing is I was only a couple of feet away? While wondering around I find people of and older generation would block the isles with their trollies so you cannot get past. When you say ‘excuse me, can I get past’? they just luck at you and carry on. So I had to move one of the trollies and when I did, Oh dear it was like I tried to steal he hand bag, she even swore at me, which actually made me laugh, so I just uttered one word ‘Idiot’ and walked off.

Once home and unpacked I decided it is time for a hair cut so off to my local barbers which costs me about £7.00, which is cheap I think. I get my usual which is the clippers with no guard and shave it all off, luckily it only takes about 3-4 minutes. Plus then she goes over my head with smaller clippers and makes it a closer cut with no odd strands. The only thing with having my hair this short is that you can feel the sun so much more on the head and it feels like my head is burning now, I know , why did I not wear a hat?

I had all good intentions of going to the gym this morning, I made myself a sandwich with chilli sausages, dam good too. The silly thing is after I ate the sandwich and watched Jumanji with Kevin Heart I fell asleep for an hour or two and woke about 14:00 ish. So without thinking about it I got my arse off the sofa and got changed into my gym kit, I nearly wear MyProtien gym wear. So as I leave the house I set my apple watch to walk counter and go for a forty minute walk before hitting the gym, then set my watch to general workout. While at the gym I decided to do some running, interval running as I find constant running so bloody boring, so I did 5 minutes running at a speed of  11, then walking for 1 minute to try and work on recovery time. after about 40 minutes id had enough as being bored of running so I decided to do some weights in the gym. I started an incline bench press of 80kg with four sets of 12 reps at a slow pace. I moved on to bicep curls 27.7kg , 12 reps at 4 sets, and moved on to do some core work which consisted of 16kg kettlebell, laying on my back raising the kettlebell above my head, then raising my shoulders off the ground working the top part of my stomach. Once this was done I went to attempt shoulder press at 30kg each side and did 11 reps at 4 sets done slowly. Next was lateral pull downs set at 150 and only managed 9 reps but 4 sets and again slowly. Finishing on leg extensions set at 38.5 kg each leg at 7 reps each and 4 sets. this killed me in the end so now it is time to walk home but take it the long way round. This took me about 40 minutes to get home and showered. 

In the evening I got food ready for work tomorrow, I work 07:00 until 19:00, bloody long day I know. I made for one meal chicken salad with lemon juice, but made to much so I got enough for the next day. I also have made a pork tikka masala with egg noodles, enough for two days.

Well it is 21:11 here and I need to get finished for work tomorrow morning, plus I am watching Iron Man 3 on Netflix too. I am actually feeling the burn from the gym today but I do like that muscle burn you get from working out. Well take care everyone, stay safe and do not get angry at idiots that are about, just walk away. 

An Ordinary Day — September 2, 2018

An Ordinary Day

Well it is Sunday today and it appears I woke at about 08:00 hrs this morning, the sun is beating in through the window but there is also a nice little breeze flowing into the room as well. Instead of laying in this morning, I decide to go for a shower and head down stairs for a coffee and breakfast. I did decide straight away on what to have for breakfast, which is different for me as usually I can’t decide straight away. In my ultimate wisdom I decided to have a sausage sandwich, with brown sauce.  this consisted of three sausages, gluten-free bread and a small amount of butter on the bread and to top it off I had a strong cup of coffee. 

Getting my bag a wallet together I head out the door and wow the glare from the sun hits me and the heat is awesome but I do need to go and change from wearing jeans and a thin long-sleeved top to shorts and a T-shirt. Heading back out I walk a different route into town for a change, just a little longer but nothing exciting really. Surprisingly for a Sunday morning around 10:30 there is a lot of cars on the road, especially the closer to town you get, then I realise it is pay-day weekend and the last day before the kids go back to school from summer holiday. The close I get to town as I walk the more and more I see lots of families walking around in this heat and it also looks like a few have packed a bag ready for a picnic in one of the local parks. Heading more in to the town centre I head for my favourite coffee-house, Costa. Today I ordered a medium Latte with an extra shot and for a change they did not make it to hot to drink straight away.

Around town there are a few different types of people out, you have the families that are out doing their own thing and bothering no one. You have the ones that are out that let their kids run riot, screaming and shouting and running into people and not caring one little bit. Some times you can hear one or both of the parents scream at their kids and belittle them and scolding them in public. Then you have the teenagers that hang around in groups swearing and acting like idiots, but not talking but shouting at each other, so everyone can hear what they are saying from about 20 feet away. Then you have the ordinary nice people who don’t barge into you or course trouble, they are the ones that are just out in town and doing what they need to do and minding their own business. To be honest I don not know why I came into town as I do not need anything, maybe I board of being off work this weekend.

I have decided to head of to the nearest park and wander around there for a while as I head home. The park and playing field is full of kids playing football, couples sitting in the sun having picnics and families playing with their kids at the swings and slides. As I wonder around I think to my self thinking that I miss the going to the park with a family and having fun, messing around and getting away with acting like a kid with your own children. One day I will get this I’m pretty sure of that. I walk around a big pond where I can see the swans swimming around and the ducks looking for food to eat as some people are feeding the ducks and geese at the pond. The funny thing is I have just seen a little yappy dog go up to one of the geese and start barking at it, the geese flap their wings and chase the little dog. The little brave dogs turns and runs while yelping, it just tickled me.

Once home I decided to go and have a nap as the walk which did take a few hours has taken it out of me, that’s what happens when get a bug and end up throwing up a lot. When I woke up again I am actually starving, It is actually about 14:25 when I wake up and I have got into the habit of eating little and often. I eat roughly every two to three hours but it is usually something healthy, well most of the time. I had mad myself a chicken, ham, cheese and salami sandwich. Whilst I sit on the sofa I decide that I am going to watch the box set of DVD’s Underworld and stupidly have a beer or two maybe. Have not just sat at home chilled and had a beer. Probably going to have a can or two of Stella Artois. 

Well right now it is 19:03 and I am watching the 3rd DVD underworld The rise of the Lycans, so what I am going to do is bid you all a good evening and hope you are all well. I will try to get back on tomorrow afternoon to evening. 

 

 

An Ordinary Day — September 1, 2018

An Ordinary Day

This morning after a night of feeling rough and possibly a virus or bug I woke up with what appeared to be a temperature, and a little sweaty. It wasn’t a hot night and plus I had a few windows open in the bedroom and feeling that cool breeze blowing around now and again. How great does it feel when you are laying on the top of the quilt with the windows open and every now and again you feel that cool to cold breeze brushing over you skin which appears to have such a powerful cooling effect when you feel warm. The trouble with having a virus/bug is that I don’t sleep to well and being awake at 04:54 am , I know its early but once awake I am awake. 

In the kitchen filling the water filter for the kettle to make coffee I can hear some squealing in the garden, I unlock the back door and go outside and see two cats squaring off with each other, fur standing up on their backs, moving round each other. Reaching to my left I grab my hose and turn on the tap and spray around the garden but not aiming at the cats but at the plants and bushes near by. This was enough to spook the cats and they run off in opposite directions to one another. So going back into the kitchen I stupidly trip over stubbing my toe and end up on my hands and knees. A few choice words were said at this point. Making a coffee and using the last few pieces of crusty bread , I make eggy bread with melted cheese on top mmmm. But for me the eggy bread with cheese has to be a little bit well done on top. but then maybe a little bit of brown sauce on a couple of them. 

Deciding to head off into town for a coffee and a little bit of people watching, walking up the street, I feel that cool breeze from earlier when I was in bed. The sun is beating down but it not to hot and the cool breeze makes it bearable as I am wear jeans and a baggy white T-shirt. Heading into town I aim straight for Costa Coffee and order a medium Latte with an extra shot which costs about £3.10, give or take. Sitting by the window sipping on my coffee, why is it they always make it extra hot? I watch people walking by and watch what they are doing their expressions and their body language. There is one man who appears to be dressed in dirty jeans, trainers which are scruffy and have a few holes with a ripped hoody, he has a can of beer in his hand and it appears by the way he walks that he has been drinking all night. Meeting up with what appears to be his friends and he looks happy to see them, but you can actually hear then talk, I use the word talk loosely, more shouting and swearing. There is one woman dressed smartly in a knee length grey skirt with a black blouse/shirt, and a matching grey jacket. She is sparking up a cigarette and learning her head to the left while holding a mobile phone between her shoulder and ear. After a few minutes from her body language the phone call don’t look so good. She is smoking her fag/cigarette with quick drags on it, every now and again she is tamping her foot and sometimes you can hear her swear.

The next thing made me feel like humanity is still alive in places. There was a homeless man sitting near the coffee shop , not hassling anyone. Then about two lads and one girl start heckling him and flicking sweets at him. he doesn’t get angry he just asks for them to leave him alone. One of the lads steps up to him and gets in his face swearing at him and still he does nothing. As I stand up, I hate bullies by the way. I head out the door and walk up to the lads and as I get there one woman starts having a dig at the boys and girl. They start mouthing off at her and then a man and myself step up and tell the boys to F off . The man who isn’t that big or intimidating looking steps into the ring leaders face and I step the bullies side looking at him. Believe me I am no tough guy. The bullies friend step back very quickly, The man that stepped up to the bully looks at me and I nod at him with a smile, as if to tell him I got you. The boy backs off quite quickly as the man tells him what will happen if he carries on, as he walks off he gets mouthy and making threats which actually makes the three of us laugh. The lady goes into Costa and gets a coffee and a pastry and gives it to the homeless man. Humanity restored. 

Going back into the coffee shop I finish off my coffee and think why are some people such D*#ks to one another. But at least there are a few decent people out there. After finishing my coffee I head off home but walk through town doing a little window shopping. Just looking at clothes and things I don not actually need, but I think I could do with that but actually don’t need it. Why do people do that, as in buy things we don’t need. 

Unfortunately In the afternoon I didn’t do much walking around has drained me after having a virus/bug. So I laid on the sofa and put on Netflix but I did not watch much as I fell asleep, lol . How old do I feel having an afternoon nap after a small walk for the morning. I woke up and cooked myself some food chicken, rice and spicy salami. weird combination I know but it tastes dam good. 

Well I am done for today, as I said there has not been a lot going on today and some days there is nothing much going on but then some days there is a lot going on but nothing to exciting. but I will try and jot it down in a daily diary like this. 

 

Starting Again. — August 31, 2018

Starting Again.

 

Well it has been a while since I have done any writing, so I am going to give it another try and see what happens. Due to personal reasons I gave up trying to write or blog, what ever you want to call it. I am not sure what I am going to write about or where it can lead to but I thought I need to do something with my spare time instead of laying on the sofa, watching TV. Kind of gets boring.

In the past year I have had to deal with a separation from my wife, and no it was not my doing. It was a situation where I gave her the options to end it with someone and we could work it out. What a mistake, as we agreed to try but then found out how she lied and carried on. Me being the man that is too nice, let her stay until she finds a place which she did and totally bent my trust. Well I can honestly say we all live and learn. So I have learned and now For the past four months I have moved on. I have found a new woman in my life and she is amazing. 

Recently I have started getting  back into working at the gym and working on my kickboxing. I have started to do a lot more cardio but splitting that up so it doesn’t get boring, how boring can cardio be just running a long distance at one pace for 30 minutes, so I started mixing it up a little. Some times I will be jogging at a fast pace for 5 minutes then walking for 2 minutes then try 1 minute running at a fast pace then walking for 2 minutes and repeat that for about 10-15 minutes. Then after this I will try to do an all over body work out with weights that I can lift just about 3 sets of 12-14 reps. Just so I can feel the burn the next day, you got to love the burn.

So now I am going to start writing again but I am not sure what I am going to write about as yet. I did try writing a story but I actually got bored of that, and cannot get back into it. So I thought I would try something different.

So basically I am on track to get back on track with my self with a big help from my new person in my life. I am actually drinking a glass or 2 or wine watching Gilmore Girls, yer I know, no need to say anything.  As time goes by I will try to write something every couple of days and write about things I come across and see on the news. 

Well this is the start or me attempting to write. I will try different things and styles but at the end of the day I am not a professional write so go easy on me. 

How it all Began — June 16, 2018

How it all Began

CHAPTER 1

The Dark Secret.
I have moved about a lot, not due to being an army brat, or being a bad ass, I guess I have found that I have not really fitted in well no matter where I am living. I have tried to make friends in school and other places I have lived, but for some reason people have always found me strange. Bullying is not new to me with all the name calling, notes stuck to my back and not to say the physical violence from the jocks and people that are always tough in groups. I think that due to this I have night mares nearly every night and find it difficult to sleep most of the times. Personally, I think it my mind continuously playing over what has happened with the bullying and it manifests itself in the way of scary dreams.
I am going to tell you a little about my dreams for now, they might not seem too bad to you but when you are living the dreams it is a nightmare and waking up in sweats is never a good thing. I sweat that much it’s like I have wet the bed or someone has poured water over me. The amount of washing I have to do for the laundry is getting to be expensive, so I have taken to washing it in a bath tub and saving money at laundrettes. Let me tell you, it takes me bloody ages to wash in the tub and to get them dry, some nights I do not have dry bedding to lay on so it is just a mattress with my jacket to cover me. Surprising what you can get used to at a young age isn’t it. Well let’s get back to me telling you about my night mares as I have wondered off track a little. One example is I woke up to a horrible stench wafting into my room from the open window which is at the end of my bed. The cool breeze blew a stench of stale, decaying wet dog, I wake up to this smell coming through my window and throw back the sheets and wonder over to the window. The next thing I know is that I am out in the garden of the house I am staying in and I have no idea how I got down here.
Looking around I can see a yellow thin mist on the ground like a pathway leading off into the forest, the weird thing is the mist is moving like a wave, swaying on the ground. This yellow mist is the stench of decaying wet dog I can smell, it’s that bad it nearly makes me gag and heave. I walk the way the path is heading and look down at myself, I am wearing black knee length shorts and a grey vest but no shoes and for some reason I have a tattoo on my right forearm of a circle with a triangle in side and three dots inside the triangle. Weird I think to myself, I don’t remember getting that. As I follow the mist into the woods the smell is getting stronger, I feel a warm burning sensation on my right forearm and look down, the tattoo is starting to shine brighter as I walk further into the woods. Suddenly I find myself running through the forest, I think as I run what the hell is going on, where am I going? I am running fast, faster than I should be able to run, I am not hitting any trees or low hanging branches plus my feet are bare but I don’t feel any pain from running. I am still following the mist at such a high pace but I don’t feel tired from running at such a high pace. In front of me the mist has disappeared but the is a huge tree in front of me, but I am heading straight for it and I am finding I cannot stop running at the tree. As I get closer I find myself screaming and holding my hands up as if to protect me, like that’s really going to protect me from me hitting the tree. As I am about to hit the tree I see to the left of me a man standing there looking straight at me smiling, the weird thing is that he has blood around his mouth. And he is holding what appears to be an animal leg.
As I hit the tree I am, somehow kneeling on the floor with no pain from hitting the tree, it’s like it never happened. What I am doing now is kneeling on the forest floor with a dead deer in front of me with its guts ripped out. I can feel that my face is wet so I wipe my face with my hands and look down at my hands are soaked in blood. Oh my god have I just started to eat that deer? What the hell is going on with me? The only thing I am feeling right now is excitement, energy rushing through my body like a huge caffeine rush but I am also feeling scared. The stench of the decaying wet dog has disappeared, but I look down at the deer and then burry my head in the deer. I suddenly wake up in a cold sweat in my bed, sitting up looking at the window. I jump up and walk over to the window and peer out of the window. I is dark and just as I look over to the forest I see someone disappear into the trees but hear what sounds like a distorted wolf howl.
Shutting the window, I head off to the bathroom and turn on the shower, as I am covered in sweat. Turning on the shower on My mind goes back to seeing that figure disappear into the forest and hearing the weird wolf howl. I actually didn’t think that wolves lived in this area for quite some time. It’s not that I know this area as I have only just moved here and I don’t even know this town very well. Jumping in the shower I begin to wash myself down and sing badly in the shower. All of a sudden, I can hear a noise from my bedroom, leaving the shower running I gently pull the shower curtain back a little and pop my head out calling “hello”, but no answer. I continue to carry on showering and hearing a noise again, turning the shower off and grabbing my towel I wrap it around my waist, stepping out of the shower I quietly walk to my room. Opening the bathroom door, I enter my bedroom and see that my window has been opened, darting over to my window I look out then turn back into my room. On my mirror a message has been written ‘you’re not alone’, getting dressed I run down stairs and call out for my foster parents, this is why I have moved around a lot, my parents died when I was little. I’ll get into that later. My foster parents call out we are in the kitchen, heading off into the kitchen and ask them did any of you come into my room and write on my mirror. Looking confused at each other they both said “No”, I tell them that someone has been in my room and written ‘you’re not alone’ on my mirror. Well we have been in the kitchen cooking food, look we are cooking stew and my foster mum lifts up the pot lid and I look in the pot and to my horror I see my own head in the pot. I scream and jump back, looking at my parents they suddenly have wolf faces and they both jump at me.
I am sitting up in bed, sweating and yet again it feels so real but at least that was just a dream. I had fallen asleep after coming home from school. It wasn’t dark outside it was still daylight and it is about 17:07 on my bedside clock. Thinking to myself this was a standard nightmare and it either ends with people turning into werewolves or vampires. It may not seem like a lot but live this a lot and you start to think what is real and what isn’t. I head of to the shower and jump in to wash the sweat off and change my clothes. Getting dressed I head down stairs and head to the kitchen and in there are my foster parents are cooking dinner. My foster mum looks at me and asks if I am ok as I look bothered and confused, I tell her that I am having nightmares again and it involves werewolves. With that they both laugh but it sounds like it is an uncomfortable laugh and I catch a troubled look that they both give each other. Or am I just being paranoid due to that nightmare? Who knows. I sit down to dinner with my foster parents and see that they have made spag bol with garlic bread and loaded cheese garlic bread, my favourite as it also has red wine in the spag bol. My foster dad pours me a tall glass of wine and smiles, I look at him and say what you doing? He responds don’t be a light wait its Friday night, there is no school tomorrow. I laugh and take the glass of wine from him, taking a swig, holding up my glass I look at them both and say thank you and cheers. They return the gesture and we all swig the wine, digging into the spag bol and the first spoon is spilt down my top and into my lap, bloody hell I think, just my luck. My foster parents look at each other and start to laugh.
Whilst eating dinner my foster mum tells me that she wants to tell me about my parents, or what they have found out about them, as the time I have lived with them they have looked into my parent’s death and plus they knew my parents. This why I have moved around a lot as I have found it difficult to bond or trust new people but my foster parents have stuck by me no matter what I threw at them, I am now thinking that I am actually getting close to them. They are the only ones that have truly helped me at difficult times and never given up on me even when I have thrown abuse and bad behaviour at them. Their tolerance is second to none, real life angels and care more about others more than themselves. No with all their love they have thrown at me I am now beginning to have feelings for them now, and this does scare me as when I had parents who I loved they left me, well in a manner of speaking. They we in fact killed, I know this as I too have been looking into my parent’s death, the only thing I have found out is that they were both killed by a wild animal while out in the forest.
I must tell you that my foster parents are called Paul and Gabriela and they have looked after me for about a year now and I have spent all my spare time looking into my parent’s death. My foster parents have known my parents since I was little and I know they know a lot more about my parents. There is something Paul and Gabriela are not telling me about my parents and I ask the, “what do you know about my parent’s death and don’t lie to me please”, Paul asks me to sit down and “have some more wine as it will help you accept or understand what we are going to tell you”. I sit down and hold up my glass to gest to Paul to pour some more wine, this time he fills my wine glass to the top. Gabriela asks me if my dreams or night mares appear to feel like they are real or that they actually happened, I look at her and think should I tell her or not? I try to look at her in a confused manor and ask her “what do you mean”?” OK I’ll tell you about your parent’s and then about how we know them”. While she sits there talking she holds her glass out to Paul and he fills her glass up. Taking a sip or I should say a gulp she starts to explain and tells me that I may find this hard to believe or accept at first but it will explain the night mares. With her saying that I sit there looking at her with anticipation and excitement at the same time. She starts to explain that the stories about werewolves and vampires are true but not how it is explained in the books and films, even though some of the stories are kind of true but they have been fabricated a little. As the old stories go Vampires and werewolves are long-time enemies and have always been at war with each other, this is a lie even though there are some that do hunt each other for the fight, mostly we live in peace with each other. I sit there listening in amazement and say in a little laughing voice vampires and werewolves, really.
In ancient times the two families of vampires and werewolves did fight to kill each other but then one vampire and a werewolf tried to change this and started getting to know one another and soon enough they both developed feelings for each other. They were both children on the pack leaders and much to the werewolves disgust the two packs decided to meet and talk as the leaders loved their children very much. Once the leaders met along with the two children, well I say children they looked about late teenage years, they talked for hours about the possible future of the two packs. It was finally decided that the two tribes will stop fighting and become allies, not every werewolf and vampire liked this decision and decided to leave their tribes and start their own tribes. This is how the families changed and more families turned up and some believed in werewolves and vampires are sworn enemies and set out to hunt and kill each other. The only law is that if a vampire strays onto a werewolf ground then it is fair game if there has been no invite, same as if a werewolf strays onto a vampires ground. As time went by it seemed that more and more vampires and werewolves mixed and had half wolf and half vampire but on a rare occasion there is a child born that stays human but in time he has the powers of a wolf and a vampire as well. This rare half breed as they are known can remain human form but also change into a wolf or vampire. Next Gabriela tells me that the way to kill a werewolf is simple, it is just like shooting a dog but it has to be with a silver bullet or chop off its head and to kill a vampire it’s to remove the vampires head and burn the body or to inject pure garlic into their body. But the only way they can produce off spring is if the mother is a werewolf and the father is a vampire, it will not happen if it is the other way around and that’s how it has always been.
I jump up with a start and laugh, saying “vampires and werewolves, really” then suddenly it hits me. I stop and turn looking at Gabriela and Paul saying “what do you mean we live in peace with each other, what you mean you’re a vampire and werewolf as well”. Laughing as I say this. Paul stands up and looks straight at me and asks me to sit down as he has something to show me, I start to become very nervous and it shows with great detail as if reading a book, Paul tells me to remember that “we are your parents and we love you ok”, I sit myself down and tell them “I know you love me as do I, what’s going on”? Paul turns around and then asks “are you ready for reason you have night mares and strange dreams”? “ok now I’m scare” Paul turns around and I jump backwards out of the chair and fall behind the chair, Paul’s face is all distorted with a huge wrinkly fore head, squashed nose and huge fang like teeth. Screaming in fear I shout “you’re a bloody vampire “Paul tells me to relax “I’m not going to hurt you”. Turning to Gabriela for support she stands and tells me it is ok and shakes her head and turns into a bloody wolf, again I run backwards to the end of the lounge “what the hell”, speaking in a rough voice Gabriela tells me all the stories or werewolves and vampires are true, well kind of, the only thing is most of but they mostly live together in peace and it’s only a few that don’t.
Heading out of the house I run through the garden and into the forest at the end of our garden, Gabriela and Paul follow me into the garden calling me but they don’t seem to follow, well so it appears. As I run through the forest scared like a fox being hunted by a pack of hounds I run all over the place, the branches ripping through my clothes and into my skin. I eventually stop and trying to get my breath I start to feel the pain of the cuts on my face, arms and body, looking down at them as they sting like a bugger I notice that one by one they start to heal and disappear slowly. I think to myself ‘what the hell’ and now I have my breath back. “Am I dreaming”? I think to myself. While I try and gather my thoughts and understand what the hell is going on with me now I hear noises coming out of the forest, unusual noises that sound like animals. Paul did tell me that there are no wolves in this forest, or was he lying about this too? I try to get my bearings and start walking ahead still looking were the scratches had been, no marks what so ever. I hear the noises coming closer and closer and can hear growling with the noises and this starts to worry me, is there and wolf hunting me, as it gets closer I start to run faster and faster but this noise is getting closer.
As I see in the distance a break in the forest I am set upon from behind by what I thought was a wolf or dog, as I hit the ground I can see a hand on my shoulder with long bony fingers and long dirty nails. As adrenalin starts to pump through my body and this hand turns me over and to my horror it looks like a man that kind of has the same features as Paul, dam it, it’s a vampire. With him on top of me and not being able to move as he is a lot bigger and freakishly stronger than me, this vampire raises his left hand and tells me “you are a freak of nature you cannot live to change”, his hand comes down and I raise my hands to protect me, I hear a growl and a voice shouting “NO” and this vampire disappears off me. I scramble to my feet and see two figures fighting with the vampire and taking him to the ground. I rush backwards and trip hitting the floor and my head knocking me out. The two figures were Gabriela and Paul who had followed me and saw that this vampire stalking me and followed. Paul has the vampire pinned to a tree and Gabriela slices her long claws across his face and neck killing him as the vampire falls to the floor it turns into ash and blows into the wind. Paul realises they have won and saved me they both turn back to human form again and walk over to me and see if I am ok, carrying me back Paul has me in his arms while Gabriela checks for anything else that could attack as vampires usually hunt in packs as well as wolves. I gently open my eyes and my vision is blurry and I see Paul looking down at me as he carries me telling me that “everything will be ok, you are safe for now” and smiles. Then I am out like a light again.
When I wake I find myself in my bed and in my room, thinking what was going on. At the end of my bed was Gabriela sitting there smiling as she sees wake, I edge backwards with a little fear and she tells me to relax and that I am safe now. “what’s going on what was that”, Gabriela tells me that the thing that attacked me was a vampire and unfortunately, he was one of the ones that did not believe vampires and werewolves should mix. Every so often there is one child born of a mixed breed that can have the powers of the wolf and the vampire but remains in human form and that the child will develop a power that can make him stronger and more powerful. Gabriela tells me it looks like I am the chosen one, that’s why the vampire wanted to kill me and that in time I will develop powers that only some chosen few will have and it could end the war between the good mixed clans and the old wolves and vampires that don’t think mixing is a good thing. It seems that the clans have found out that you are one of the few that can develop these powers. I tell Gabriela that when I ran through the woods I was covered in scratches from the trees and then they disappeared. She asked me if I had had any dreams about a man that appears in my dreams and is watching me, I look away and she said “so you have then”, he is known as Marcus and he is the clan leader of the vampires and it is believed that he vanished and has not been seen or heard of for centuries. If you have seen him in your dreams you must be very important to him or he is afraid of you and is sending his clan members out to kill you. We believe Marcus is the reason why your parents were killed when you were a baby, they were protecting you. I ask Gabriela “so what the hell am I then, am I werewolf or a vampire”? “You are both, you have the strength and speed of a vampire but the senses and cunning of the werewolf”. Paul walks in and smiles asking if I am ok, “not really, I just found out what all my dreams mean and who I am kind of life altering don’t you think”. “sorry we didn’t tell you sooner but we needed to find out if you were who your parents thought you may be and that’s happening now”. Gabriela then turned to me and told me that it means you will have to have time off school and learn to adjust to my new life ad learn to fight and learn more skills like hunting and when the time comes , how to use my powers of the wolf and vampire.

How it all Began

CHAPTER 1

The Dark Secret.
I have moved about a lot, not due to being an army brat, or being a bad ass, I guess I have found that I have not really fitted in well no matter where I am living. I have tried to make friends in school and other places I have lived, but for some reason people have always found me strange. Bullying is not new to me with all the name calling, notes stuck to my back and not to say the physical violence from the jocks and people that are always tough in groups. I think that due to this I have night mares nearly every night and find it difficult to sleep most of the times. Personally, I think it my mind continuously playing over what has happened with the bullying and it manifests itself in the way of scary dreams.
I am going to tell you a little about my dreams for now, they might not seem too bad to you but when you are living the dreams it is a nightmare and waking up in sweats is never a good thing. I sweat that much it’s like I have wet the bed or someone has poured water over me. The amount of washing I have to do for the laundry is getting to be expensive, so I have taken to washing it in a bath tub and saving money at laundrettes. Let me tell you, it takes me bloody ages to wash in the tub and to get them dry, some nights I do not have dry bedding to lay on so it is just a mattress with my jacket to cover me. Surprising what you can get used to at a young age isn’t it. Well let’s get back to me telling you about my night mares as I have wondered off track a little. One example is I woke up to a horrible stench wafting into my room from the open window which is at the end of my bed. The cool breeze blew a stench of stale, decaying wet dog, I wake up to this smell coming through my window and throw back the sheets and wonder over to the window. The next thing I know is that I am out in the garden of the house I am staying in and I have no idea how I got down here.
Looking around I can see a yellow thin mist on the ground like a pathway leading off into the forest, the weird thing is the mist is moving like a wave, swaying on the ground. This yellow mist is the stench of decaying wet dog I can smell, it’s that bad it nearly makes me gag and heave. I walk the way the path is heading and look down at myself, I am wearing black knee length shorts and a grey vest but no shoes and for some reason I have a tattoo on my right forearm of a circle with a triangle in side and three dots inside the triangle. Weird I think to myself, I don’t remember getting that. As I follow the mist into the woods the smell is getting stronger, I feel a warm burning sensation on my right forearm and look down, the tattoo is starting to shine brighter as I walk further into the woods. Suddenly I find myself running through the forest, I think as I run what the hell is going on, where am I going? I am running fast, faster than I should be able to run, I am not hitting any trees or low hanging branches plus my feet are bare but I don’t feel any pain from running. I am still following the mist at such a high pace but I don’t feel tired from running at such a high pace. In front of me the mist has disappeared but the is a huge tree in front of me, but I am heading straight for it and I am finding I cannot stop running at the tree. As I get closer I find myself screaming and holding my hands up as if to protect me, like that’s really going to protect me from me hitting the tree. As I am about to hit the tree I see to the left of me a man standing there looking straight at me smiling, the weird thing is that he has blood around his mouth. And he is holding what appears to be an animal leg.
As I hit the tree I am, somehow kneeling on the floor with no pain from hitting the tree, it’s like it never happened. What I am doing now is kneeling on the forest floor with a dead deer in front of me with its guts ripped out. I can feel that my face is wet so I wipe my face with my hands and look down at my hands are soaked in blood. Oh my god have I just started to eat that deer? What the hell is going on with me? The only thing I am feeling right now is excitement, energy rushing through my body like a huge caffeine rush but I am also feeling scared. The stench of the decaying wet dog has disappeared, but I look down at the deer and then burry my head in the deer. I suddenly wake up in a cold sweat in my bed, sitting up looking at the window. I jump up and walk over to the window and peer out of the window. I is dark and just as I look over to the forest I see someone disappear into the trees but hear what sounds like a distorted wolf howl.
Shutting the window, I head off to the bathroom and turn on the shower, as I am covered in sweat. Turning on the shower on My mind goes back to seeing that figure disappear into the forest and hearing the weird wolf howl. I actually didn’t think that wolves lived in this area for quite some time. It’s not that I know this area as I have only just moved here and I don’t even know this town very well. Jumping in the shower I begin to wash myself down and sing badly in the shower. All of a sudden, I can hear a noise from my bedroom, leaving the shower running I gently pull the shower curtain back a little and pop my head out calling “hello”, but no answer. I continue to carry on showering and hearing a noise again, turning the shower off and grabbing my towel I wrap it around my waist, stepping out of the shower I quietly walk to my room. Opening the bathroom door, I enter my bedroom and see that my window has been opened, darting over to my window I look out then turn back into my room. On my mirror a message has been written ‘you’re not alone’, getting dressed I run down stairs and call out for my foster parents, this is why I have moved around a lot, my parents died when I was little. I’ll get into that later. My foster parents call out we are in the kitchen, heading off into the kitchen and ask them did any of you come into my room and write on my mirror. Looking confused at each other they both said “No”, I tell them that someone has been in my room and written ‘you’re not alone’ on my mirror. Well we have been in the kitchen cooking food, look we are cooking stew and my foster mum lifts up the pot lid and I look in the pot and to my horror I see my own head in the pot. I scream and jump back, looking at my parents they suddenly have wolf faces and they both jump at me.
I am sitting up in bed, sweating and yet again it feels so real but at least that was just a dream. I had fallen asleep after coming home from school. It wasn’t dark outside it was still daylight and it is about 17:07 on my bedside clock. Thinking to myself this was a standard nightmare and it either ends with people turning into werewolves or vampires. It may not seem like a lot but live this a lot and you start to think what is real and what isn’t. I head of to the shower and jump in to wash the sweat off and change my clothes. Getting dressed I head down stairs and head to the kitchen and in there are my foster parents are cooking dinner. My foster mum looks at me and asks if I am ok as I look bothered and confused, I tell her that I am having nightmares again and it involves werewolves. With that they both laugh but it sounds like it is an uncomfortable laugh and I catch a troubled look that they both give each other. Or am I just being paranoid due to that nightmare? Who knows. I sit down to dinner with my foster parents and see that they have made spag bol with garlic bread and loaded cheese garlic bread, my favourite as it also has red wine in the spag bol. My foster dad pours me a tall glass of wine and smiles, I look at him and say what you doing? He responds don’t be a light wait its Friday night, there is no school tomorrow. I laugh and take the glass of wine from him, taking a swig, holding up my glass I look at them both and say thank you and cheers. They return the gesture and we all swig the wine, digging into the spag bol and the first spoon is spilt down my top and into my lap, bloody hell I think, just my luck. My foster parents look at each other and start to laugh.
Whilst eating dinner my foster mum tells me that she wants to tell me about my parents, or what they have found out about them, as the time I have lived with them they have looked into my parent’s death and plus they knew my parents. This why I have moved around a lot as I have found it difficult to bond or trust new people but my foster parents have stuck by me no matter what I threw at them, I am now thinking that I am actually getting close to them. They are the only ones that have truly helped me at difficult times and never given up on me even when I have thrown abuse and bad behaviour at them. Their tolerance is second to none, real life angels and care more about others more than themselves. No with all their love they have thrown at me I am now beginning to have feelings for them now, and this does scare me as when I had parents who I loved they left me, well in a manner of speaking. They we in fact killed, I know this as I too have been looking into my parent’s death, the only thing I have found out is that they were both killed by a wild animal while out in the forest.
I must tell you that my foster parents are called Paul and Gabriela and they have looked after me for about a year now and I have spent all my spare time looking into my parent’s death. My foster parents have known my parents since I was little and I know they know a lot more about my parents. There is something Paul and Gabriela are not telling me about my parents and I ask the, “what do you know about my parent’s death and don’t lie to me please”, Paul asks me to sit down and “have some more wine as it will help you accept or understand what we are going to tell you”. I sit down and hold up my glass to gest to Paul to pour some more wine, this time he fills my wine glass to the top. Gabriela asks me if my dreams or night mares appear to feel like they are real or that they actually happened, I look at her and think should I tell her or not? I try to look at her in a confused manor and ask her “what do you mean”?” OK I’ll tell you about your parent’s and then about how we know them”. While she sits there talking she holds her glass out to Paul and he fills her glass up. Taking a sip or I should say a gulp she starts to explain and tells me that I may find this hard to believe or accept at first but it will explain the night mares. With her saying that I sit there looking at her with anticipation and excitement at the same time. She starts to explain that the stories about werewolves and vampires are true but not how it is explained in the books and films, even though some of the stories are kind of true but they have been fabricated a little. As the old stories go Vampires and werewolves are long-time enemies and have always been at war with each other, this is a lie even though there are some that do hunt each other for the fight, mostly we live in peace with each other.

Time for a change.  — July 25, 2017

Time for a change. 

After being away from writing for a few months. I have decided to go another way. It is going to be about my fitness and healthy eating. I will be sticking to about 2000cals a day and going regularly to the gym. 

I don’t have workout plans to go by, I will doing what I like doing. Be focusing on upper body one day and then legs the next and always finish off doing core work. So when I start I will always do bench press ( flat and incline), deadlifts and squats. Once these are done I’ll move onto dumbbell to work my upper body. 

Legs will be leg extensions, curls and more squats or leg press. 

Core work may be cable pull downs, back extensions, Russian twists with kettle bell and seat cable crunches. Maybe a few leg raises. 

The cardio will be ten- fifteen minutes warm up mixed in with rowing and hand bike. Then fit more cardio as I go along with the session. 

I will aiming to lose body fat overall, I am not bothered about my weight as it will not mean anything. As you burn body fat it will disappear and turn into muscle so my weight will increase in the end with more muscle. I am going to take a start off photo and more as time goes on as I work out. 

I am aiming to lose body fat and build muscle and maybe if it looks good get into modelling maybe.

What Makes A Good Looking Man — May 20, 2017

What Makes A Good Looking Man

Good afternoon my fellow readers. I have gone a different way today and decided to try something different. What is it that makes a man good looking? Could it be the way his cheek bones are chiselled, the stubble on his face, his piercing eyes or his gleaming smile?

Some may say it is the way his muscles are developed, but does he know that he has a great body and uses it to his advantage and use others as an object? who’s to tell. Surely if he is good looking on the outside isn’t it important to be good looking on the inside?

Is it because he is famous and has an A lister life style, which could attract what he is looking for. This is nothing personal against good looking people. I am looking for people opinion and comments at the end of this.

Below I have looked for famous good looking people and not so famous good looking people. They have links under the photos so please follow it and read the articles as well.

Out of all the photos, this is one of them that is not to bad. If you wear this you really need the chest muscle with a little hair to show it off.

Celebrities Dressing Down —

Celebrities Dressing Down

Hello to my readers how are you all? I know I haven’t been doing any writing for a while. My computer has been very poorly. Now I have had it fixed and sorted, I can get back into writing and enjoy what I do. I was thinking about changing it around a little but we will see.

Today I am going to write about celebrities that dress like every day ordinary people like me and you.

zac

In the first picture, we have Zac Efron who looks smart in what he is wearing even though he is looking casual. We see him dressing in grey suede ankle boots with blue worn style jeans with the classic role ups. On top of this he is sporting a black top with a brown worn style leather jacket with a woollen knitted scarf and the always fashionable Aviator sunglasses. This is a classic casual look that is always good when meeting friends for a drink in town for the day time. I personally dress like this and I like the look and I am 45 years of age.

Jude Law

http://.mirror www.co.uk/3am/style/shopping/top-10-mens-fashion-mistakes-865618

In this photo, we have Jude Law in a state of dress down or casual wear. We see him sporting black Nike trainers with knee length baggy shorts. On top, he appears to be sporting a black top and over this he is wearing as we can see a black bomber style jacket with a zip up front.

For me this is the sort of thing to wear when slobbing around the house or in the garden. Plus, it could have been Jude Law off to the gym or a workout.

In this photo it appears he is shouting or calling out to the photographer.adam

 

In this photo, we have a photo of the famous actor Adam Sandler, who appears to look totally casual. We wee him sporting black basketball boots. We see him wearing what looks like shell suit style long shorts of a grey shinny colour(hmmm). On top he sports a white polo shirt with what appears to be red horizontal stripes.

This in my opinion is not a great look but that’s just my opinion. If it was me I would have worn a dark grey or black top or red shorts to match the stripes on the polo shirt.

Chris

 

Here we have Liam Hemsworth Known for The Hunger Games and Empire State. We have Liam sporting brown worn leather casual boots with casual fit worn style jeans with a matching brown belt. On the top, he is wearing a white T-shirt and over this he is wearing a blue machine knitted jumper.

This is my favourite style so far in all of the photos, the only difference is that Liam pulls this off better than most men I think. I do wear this style of outfit and it can be changed a little to make it look smart of casual. What I mean is you could wear smart shoes or change the top for a shirt.

 

Well I hope you enjoy what I have written. If you want more on these photos please click on the links at the bottom of the photos. Please feel free to leave comments on the blog pages

 

 

 

Men’s Celebrity Casual Fashion — March 10, 2017

Men’s Celebrity Casual Fashion

Good day to my fellow readers, I hope you are well and still enjoying what I blog about. If you think there is something I should do to change either to make it better or something that you would like to read about. Then all you have to do is leave me a comment for ideas and I will put who it is from and what they wanted.

This past few days I have been trolling through the internet and looking for something to write about. So today I have decided on, as you can tell from the title, to write about male celebrities casual fashion. I hope you like what I have put in writing, please feel free to leave comments at the end.

David 1

Picture from stylebyjade.com

In the photo we can see the famous footballer David Beckham, who we all know him from football and playing for Man United. We know he married Victoria Beckham (spice girls) and for setting up a football school.

What we can see him wearing a pair of classic white trainers, that always look good with a stylish pair of blue jeans. The jeans can be slim fit or casual fit and even a baggy style as well. With his jeans he is pulling off a thick style brown leather looking belt with its thick chunky buckle. On the top he is sporting a plain white T-shirt with a low cut V-neck cut that looks good with a hairless chest or a chest with trimmed cut. Over this David is pulling off a casual blazer/jacket that has two buttons but it is done up with the top button only. Over this he is wearing a thin woollen looking jumper that is draped over his shoulders. To be fair it looks good  but this look is not for everyone. I know it would not look to great on me but I think I may have to try it in the future.

zac 1

picture from people.com

This photo shows the heart throb Zac Efron known for his acting in films such as Baywatch, Bad neighbours, 17 again and voice for Lorax.

In this photo we can see Zac wearing a scruffy looking/ worn pair of brown leather looking ankle boots, which always look  smart and stylish to me no matter what you wear. He appears to be wearing a pair of dark blue pair of slim fit chinos, which always look good with most things. On the top he is sporting what looks like a blue cotton looking shirt that is not tucked in but worn out, making it look casual but also smart. Over this he is wearing a slim fit puffer body warmer which is worn open not done up and then to finish it off he is wearing a light coloured charcoal grey three quarter jacket which is undone. This jacket always looks good with anything that is worn with chinos or other smart trousers and shoes.

To me this is a winner look and I would definitely wear this on an everyday outfit, or an outfit to wear when meeting friends.

Ryan 1 

Picture from laineygossip.com

Here in this photo we have the famous actor Ryan Reynolds known for films such as Blade Trinity, Deadpool, Green Lantern and The Proposal.

Here we have Ryan wearing a brown looking shoes with worn with what appears to be blue or grey chinos that are slim fit and smart but look casual at the same time. On this he is wearing what appears to be a light blue shirt , worn with a bark blue tie making this outfit look smart and yet casual at the same time. Over the top of this he wears a blue Jumper with a neck zip at the front that is undone to show the shirt and tie. This way makes the outfit look smart but yet again a little casual. To finish it off he sports a dark casual jacket with two spaced button but not fastened.  Smart but yet casual, good for nights out with friends or meetings with agents you know.

Tom 1

Picture from Dailymail.co.uk

Here we have the world famous actor that everyone knows for films such as Top Gun, Mission Impossible, A Few Good Men just to name a few films.  This man is know for doing his own stunts and training hard for all his fight scenes.

We see Tom sporting a scruffy looking pair of brown boots that look great  and wearing a pair of slim fit blue jeans that look worn but still stylish.  On top he wears a white T-shirt and over this he has a stylish light blue or grey V-neck woollen looking jumper that looks great. To finish this off  he wears an open jacket square looking style that is undone and at times wearing a silver rimmed pair of sunglasses.

Fashion, My Opinion. — March 1, 2017

Fashion, My Opinion.

Good day to my fellow readers, I hope you are all well and enjoying the life we have been given. I have thought about what I am going to write about in regards to men’s fashion. I have got a few ideas but I have thought I would write about what I want to achieve and gain from writing about Men’s Fashion in my opinion.

I have looked at many different things in regards to this subject and I know there is lots of different articles and blogs out there as in what is top notch and what is not, high end fashion and what the celebrities wear. To be honest how many of us can afford the type of names and clothing that the stars wear? Not many that’s for sure I bet. So what I want to put out there in my blogs is affordable fashion for men, from places like Burtons, Debenhams, New Look and the other every day shops that can be affordable to the everyday Joe that cannot afford a lot to spend. Like me I have a great job which pays good but with keeping a house hold and going to the gym and doing kickboxing I don’t get a lot of time or money spare for the luxuries in life.

I have been for a photo shoot in London for some company and now I have put myself on Star Now. I have had a few calls from people but unfortunately I have had to turn them down due to my shifts at work. The unfortunate thing is that I want to be able to have a job in fashion where I can work from home or an office and write about anything to do with Fashion. Whether that be modelling clothes for a company like Debenhams, Burtons or any other middle aged clothing company. It could also be writing about fashion from an amateurs point of view but in the end I want to make a living from this and enjoy writing or posing for the cameras.

I do enjoy researching about fashion and looking up what is new and old style fashion and up to date. What I would like is my readers to either put forward their favourite tops, shirts, trousers, sports wear and anything you would like to have a write up on and I will try to write about it and what may look good with it but in my opinion.

So please send me some clothing you like and I will put in my blog and try and put a few ideas out there. So please email me a few picture on writer1710@hotmail.com and what you hope to see with these pictures and I will try my best to put a few things out there. Or if you are a company that wants a small write up on clothing please get in touch and see what we can do.

Celebrity Men’s Fashion — February 26, 2017

Celebrity Men’s Fashion

I have thought of trying a different approach this time, but still found things I have liked with three different celebrities. but all different casual looks. I have chosen three casual looks and Beckham, Jonas and Khan.

If you like what I have written please fell free to make comments on what is good or bad plus feel free to comment on anything you would like to read about.

beckham

Picture from outfittrends.com

Here we see David Beckham out on the town wearing a scruffy but casual look. The clothes David is wearing is probably top of the range but if you look about you could find very similar styles for half the price.

First we have the plain white trainers, but it probably look just as good with white pumps. The Jeans are baggy and long legged, which are a look of worn and torn and faded, with the odd torn hole in the legs. On the top we have a white T-shirt that appears to be slim fit with a black motif and over this we have a black leather looking jacket with a material collar. What would look good is a worn, maybe torn looking jacket. To finish it of he is wearing Aviator sunglasses of a dark colour.

jonas 

Picture from heartandhabit.com

We all know this young man especially if you into boy bands from the USA. Here we have Nick Jonas looking casual but smart at the same time and to be fare , pulling it off very well. First off we have his smart brown shoes that can be bought in most clothing shops for anything from £20 upwards. Next we have the loose fitted jeans with turn ups at the bottom but personally id do it without the turn ups. On the top we have a light/pale blue shit of slim fit undone at the collar which is available at most clothing shops from about £10 upwards and worn with the sleeves turned up. With the jeans and shoes he is wearing a brown leather looking belt and carrying a brown leather looking man bag/satchel but any brown bag would look good here.

shahrukh 

Picture from pinterest.

Here we have an actor who some people may not recognise, he is a famous Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan. I personally have these clothes myself apart from the white trainers. The trainers are available from most clothes shops and sports shops and can be brought for about £25-£60 depends on where you go. The jeans are long legged with a worn look in the legs, but worn without a belt so they hang a little off the hips, these can be had for about £20-£30. The top is a slim fit top which is worn with nothing underneath and has a button front of four buttons. When wearing this top the buttons should be undone. To finish this look of he is wearing silver rimmed aviator sunglasses with silver or grey lenses.

Well I hope you have like what I have written and please feel free to leave comments or suggestions for future articles. 

Men’s Sweaters — February 25, 2017

It is of crew neck design and the colour, they have called it Berry, personally I would call it maroon or dark cherry. It is made from 100% Cashmere and the size of this particular one is medium. Personally I would not wear white trousers with this sweater, in my opinion I would wear a grey or charcoal trousers and may be a pail shirt like a light blue.

burton-jumper

This sweater is known as Oatmeal ? but it does look good. As you can see it has a three button collar and high neck collar.

Men’s Future Fashion — February 10, 2017

Men’s Future Fashion

Good day to my fellow writers, how are you all? Good I hope. Well as usual I have been looking through the internet for something to write about and I have found something different. It is men’s fashion but with a future style

I have found four pictures of something different from fashion shows and this time I could not find prices as I did not have time as I have been busy. If this was my job then I would find time to find the prices and maybe write a lot more.

 dior-circle

Picture from fashionavecpassion.com

This is a futuristic style suit that appears to be slim fit for most people. Why can they never have an average man of height and build modelling these clothes. For me that would more of an appealing buy for me and most people I think. This particular suit is from the Fall/winter 2013 sporty-vibe. It is designed for Dior Home, by Kris Van Assche. With Black stylish smart dress shoes that could be sold at most retail shops and slim fit smart trousers finished off with a Black jacket. On the jacket is a printed red circle with a triangle inside the circle.

Stylish and smart that actually could be worn in todays upper class society and probably set you back a bob or two.

slim-bisuness

Picture from imgarcade.com

This to me as it on my opinion appears to be something from the 1960’s fashion not the future, but who am I. This image did come under the subject I looked for- Men’s Future Fashion. It is a slim fit smart tailored suit. In this photo it appears to have this model wearing smart black shoes, with slim fit black trousers. On the top half he is wearing a white slim fit tailored shirt with a bow tie. To finish it off he is wearing a black slim fit jacket with a shiny collar and a white chest pocket finisher. To make this look like a business mans suit is the hat the model is wearing makes it looks old style business man.

yves-saint-laurent

Picture from thebestfashionblog.com

This is a mix of future and modern style mixed with leather and other materials. On his feet he is wearing fashionable black slip on shoes with a gold looking band across the shoes. With black socks and slim fit trousers. On top he is wearing what appears to be a black leather waist coat done up to the collar. Over the top of this he is wearing a hip length jacket that appears to be slim fit and finishing off with black leather gloves.

This to me looks smart and is something that could actually be worn today but some may not like the leather waist coat.

It is designed by Yves Saint Laurent and is part of the winter and fall collection and is photographed by Kuba Dabrowski.

assasins

Picture from Pinterest.com

In this photo I have gone a different way but still futuristic in a way. If you think of the game Assassins Creed, it can match the outfit. It is shown on Fashion Cyberpunk Clothing. The hooded top is made from different materials and it appears to be two different styles of leggings. It appears to be men’s black tights with a knee length baggy shorts to the knees. With under knee boots. This is a great fashion look for the future but not street wear maybe fancy dress.

Well readers I hoped you like what I have written and put together. It is different, so if there is something you would like me to write about please let me know what you would like.

Men’s Fashion-shoes — February 6, 2017

Men’s Fashion-shoes

This is just a quick article on men’s shoes/boots. I looked at what I have and liked and what was chosen for me in the past and decided to shoe you what is out there.

I have picked four pairs of foot wear from Diechmans, Next, Burtons and Tesco’s. These footwear styles are not to expensive and can be affordable if you shop around.

 diechmans

Picture from Diechmans.

This boot is my favourite and I wear it a lot at the minute. It may be a little bit pricey from Diechmans but in my opinion they do last very well and are always comfortable. This boot always looks good with jeans and a dark top and also with chinos of a darker colour. It is made from a leather and a man made sole. Combined with a double stitched zip and buckle finished off with lace ups. In this store it has a 5 star rating and goes with the Autumn and winter collection and retails for about £34.99.

next

Picture from Next.

These shoes are for sale at Next and are Derby plain brown. They are made from an upper leather and the sole is an made. these are a stylish wear that can be worn with smart clothing or with blue jeans not black. if with jeans they need to be with a light coloured top maybe a T-shirt or a long sleeved shirt. Buying them would set you back a £55 and this means it would be an occasion such as an interview or meeting, maybe a nice dinner with a friend or partner.

 burtons

Picture from Burtons.

In these pictures it is black but I personally have a grey pair with red laces and a red lined sole. These ankle high boots are of a comfortable style. The design is labelled as Desert grey style shoe with red contrast stitching. They go very well with grey/blue or blue chinos or a dark blue jeans and a light coloured top. with a dark coloured jacket. These boots usually retail at about £30 but I got them cheaper as I shopped around, plus my beautiful wife chose them.

tescos

Picture from Tesco’s.

This is an always classic style boot that we can always see in films with gangsters and hoods. It goes well with any colour jeans and with dark trousers. Looking at ratings it has a 4 star rating and goes well with dark blue/black jean, maroon top/t-shirt. so is a totally classic look.

Men’s Fashion-shirts —

Men’s Fashion-shirts

Good day readers, how are you all? Good I hope. Well I have been looking through the internet for something to write about in men’s fashion and today I have pick out four shirts I personally like and I hope you like them too.

I have picked out four shirts from Marks & Spencers, Burtons, Debenhams and Asos. These are all smart shirts but can be casual as well, it all depends on what you wear them with. Some look good with jeans and some look good with trousers and both jeans and trouser. But I will let you make that decision.

 ms-supima

Picture from M&S.

As we can see this is a slim fitted shirt that is good for all occasions, such as a night out with friends or for more formal events but not with a tie. It is Autograph by Supima for Marks and Spencers. It is made from Cotton and is a long sleeve, slim fit. It has a Grey and Black geometrical pattern. In my opinion it is a great shirt and a comfortable fit with and can be worn with the collar done to the top or a few buttons undone and looks good with trousers or with smart jeans. This shirt sells for about £39.50 at M&S.

burtons

Picture from Burtons.

This particular shirt is a beautiful shirt by DKNY as we can see, it is a single button cuff and is a textured Navy blue and white pattern. It is apparently 100% Cotton, long sleeved. This shirt does go well with smart blue jeans, (not stone washed) and tan desert boots for a casual night out with friends or for a weekend outfit. As stated this shirt is sold at Burtons and retails for about a staggering £60. But it is worth the money as the shirt is an eye catcher.

debenhams

Picture from Debenhams.

As seen this shirt is a navy blue design with a floral print. This is a slim fit and good with dark blue jeans but not with trousers in my opinion. It is made from 100% Cotton and is designed by RJR. John Rocha for Debenhams. Personally I would wear this on a weekend out with friends or with a meal with my wife. It does retail for £45 at Debenhams roughly.

image1l

picture from Asos.

This too is a slim fit cotton long sleeve fit that looks good with blue jeans and brown shoes. It is for sail on Asos and designed by Farah with a polka dot design. It is a stretch design as well. it is of Bordeaux colour which I personally think is purple or a dark red. This looks good with blue jeans and desert boots in my personal opinion. It was for sale originally at £65 but has been reduced to £29 which is a great buy.

These are just my opinion on men’s fashion in shirts and you may find it different. Please feel free to comment on this and let me know what you think of my opinions or what you would like to know about next.

Very interesting

Setting your rates must be one of the most difficult aspects of freelancing. This may sound like a surprise to some people but it’s true.

A lot goes into setting the right freelance rates. It is not about setting a random rate for your service. It has a lot to do with what you have planned for your business, your budget and your mindset. If you’re not comfortable with your rates it may affect your performance and even your delivery. I know I start to get upset when I feel I have undercharged for a job.

Men’s Celebrity Fashion — February 1, 2017

Men’s Celebrity Fashion

Good day to my fellow writers, I hope you are all well. This evening I have been looking through the internet for something to write about in regards to fashion. This time I have gone a different way and as you can see I have decided to pick out a few celebrities. I have written a little bit about what  I have found and what I think looks good.

I hope you like what I have written and please feel free to leave comments at the end. I am not a professional writer on fashion but I would like to start making a living from this. Something like writing for magazines or papers and working from home or office and going out for meetings now and again and taking my own photos of clothing style.

will-smith

Picture by womensforum.com

Sorry the picture is not brilliant but I have tried three or four and it remains like this. The first picture is as we can see Will Smith in a casual outfit. It appears he has black or brown leather sport boots that are left untied with casual fitted black jeans, folded into the top of the boots. With this he wears a classic white T-shirt with what appears to be a stone grey coloured jumper. To make this look stylish the T-shirt should be worn hanging out. To finish it off he sports a Hip length black Jacket that is styled in creases to make it look scruffy but still smart at the same time. Funny how scruffy can also look smart at the same time. I do like this outfit but probably this is a high end fashion names.

The second photo of Will Smith is a smart outfit but played down at the same time. He sports a pair of black smart shoes with a white two piece suit. Now white suits are difficult in my eyes as white suits do not suit everyone but if you have the figure and build to wear it. With the suit he wears a black leather belt and a black and dark blue shirt undone by two buttons with grey or dirty white vertical stripes. Personally I would not suit this outfit but would like the first outfit in the photo.

Picture by all-fashion-trends.com

Yet again the picture is not brilliant so I am sorry.

With the first photo we see the action man sporting black smart shoes that appear to be slip ons. On his bottom half he is wearing what appears to be blue stone washed jeans, which always look good with black shoes. On the top half Jason appears to be wearing a light coloured shirt with a black jumper over the top. Now this is a casual outfit but does look smart enough for times out with friends or a quick meal with friends.

The second photo has Jason sporting blue Adidas trainers with casual fitted jeans that appear to be worn look. On his top he is wearing a grey or light blue loose fitting jumper which looks amazing if you have the body to go with it. As we all know Jason has that body to pull this off. Myself I like this outfit the most as it is a fully casual look for daily wear.

henry-cavill-3

Hear we have the infamous Super man Henry Cavill. He is sporting both smart wears and casual wear in both types of shoots. They are smart but grey suits smart clothes and white shirts with full length light grey jacket. In one we see a three piece suit with a white shirt finished off brilliantly with a red tie. One of my favourites is Henry sporting a black suit finished of with a white shirt undone at the collar. To be honest all six photos are of top quality and look amazing in them all. the one that does disappoint just a little is the black and white one as you can’t see the colouring of the clothing.

Men’s Gym T-shirst — January 29, 2017

Men’s Gym T-shirst

I’m here again readers, how is your weekend going good I hope. Well this time I am going to show you three T-shirts I personally own and wear to the gym and when I work out. Which isn’t to often at the minute. I hope you like what I write down and please feel free to make comments at the end of this little article. This was the first T-shirt I bought when I joined a gym which was about two years ago, give or take. I did buy it from MyProtien on their website. It is made of a lycra  material I think and is stretchy to fit most shapes. It is a very comfortable top to wear and it does show when you start to work out. This is actually my favourite top for the gym at the minute as it is a loose fit. This as I already said is available from MyProtien and will cost you roughly around £11.25 and for me is a great buy.

 The above T-shirt is again from MyProtien and this one is only a few months old. The difference with this top and the blue one is that this Grey one can be worn on a daily basis. It is not just a gym top but a fashionable everyday top, in my opinion. This is a comfortable top but it appears to be a slim fit so try getting the next size up unless you got the muscles to burst threw it. This was also brought from MyProtien website and had next day delivery on it at the time. This T-shirt will set you back a little, roughly around £15.99 , which isn’t to bad in my opinion. 


This particular Sleeveless workout top is my oldest top and I wear this one for the gym and for kickboxing as well. It to is made of a stretchy material and also is a slim fit. So unless you have the muscles to burst out with try buying the next size up. Believe me I do not have the muscles to wear it as a slim fit. When I bought this one I got it from the RDX website, which is one of the major suppliers for Fight wear in the country. This top did set me back at the time around £15.Well This is just a short write up on men’s gym fashion wear. I will be trolling through the internet later to see what else I can write about unless you want something in particular.

Men’s Cheaper Suits

Good day to my fellow bloggers. I have spent a day looking through the internet looking for ideas on what to write about next. At this present moment I am going to write about men’s suits I have taken a fancy to. These articles are just my own personal opinion and nothing more.

Picture by Debenhams.

This particular suit as stated is from Debenhams in most high streets. It is a simple but yet stylish 3 piece suit, semi plain of a regular fit. It comes with the waist coat and the two button jacket and trousers. It does go well with a light or white shirt but in my opinion only with black or grey shoes. This particular suit will set you back £48.00 and as stated from Debenhams.

This is a dark textured Grey suit with a tailored fit . This is also a regular fit and is suited well with the black smart shoes , white slim fit shirt and the waist coat to finish it off is a rose coloured tie. The rose coloured tie in my personal opinion breaks the dull grey colour and brightens the whole thing up.

This as stated is from Burtons and will set you back £99.00 which is a great deal for a 3 piece tailored suit.

This particular suit  is also in the company of Tuxedos as it is mainly for wedding and high end parties. As we can see this is a 3 piece suit with a stylish waist coat that fastens up at a slanted angle, not you regular way of flat straight. It is suited to black or very dark grey shoes but that depends on the shirt you are going to wear with the suit.

This particular suit as stated is by Ambrose but you can buy it from Amazon for a small price of £89.99.

There you have it three stylish suits that will not set you back a small fortune and is also available on most high streets. Like I said not everyone will like these as it is my own opinion.

Men’s Jumpers  — January 28, 2017

Men’s Jumpers 

Another day of looking through the Internet for something on men’s fashion. Today I am going to attempt to do a small write up on men’s jumpers but not high end jumpers. These are more affordable to the everyday person and not one is over £20. I hope you like what I wrote. 


Picture by George of Asda. 
This is a machine knitted stone coloured jumper for men. It is a casual style jumper with a funnel neck. It is a thick comfortable jumper. This is the type of jumper to be worn with casual trousers or jeans. 
You can get this jumper from George in the supermarket Asda. It is a Funnel neck Fisherman jumper for the price of £12.00. 


Picture by Tesco. 
This photo is not to good but I actually like this jumper. It is a casual jumper best with stone washed jeans with a T-shirt. This is also a thin knitted jumper for everyday wear. 

This particular jumper can be drought from Tesco supermarket and made by F+F. Navy blue with horizontal white stripes with a crew neck design. You can buy this for about £14.00.


Picture by Sainsbury’s. 
This particular jumper is my favourite as well. A thick woollen jumper in a light grey colour with a high neck collar and finished off nicely with a zip in the front of the collar. This is a typical winter style jumper and is available from Sainsbury’s supermarket. Designed by Tu and you could buy this particular jumper for about £12.50. 


Picture by Zicac.
This is a casual wear jumper but does at the same time appear to be smart wear. It is a machine knitted jumper of four different coloured horizontal thick stripes. It is a slim fit jumper and would go well with mainly dark blue jeans or black jeans. 
It is available on Amazon for about £17.98

Men’s Films  —

Men’s Films 

I have again been trolling through the Internet and thought I would write down about what I think are four great men’s films 🎥. Some people will disagree with me, but never the less it is just my opinion.  
Most of these films can be found on Amazon to buy from about £5-£10. 


This stars Danny Dyer as a soldier and interrogator for the SAS, who goes AWOL from his platoon. He tracks down the people who killed his parents whilst be chased by police 👮 and the leader of his platoon in the SAS. The only disappointment is the ending leaves it open for a second one but nothing yet. 


This film 🎥 stars ✨ as we can see Jason Statham. Who was a special forces recruited by 👮 police in his past. His wife gets murdered and he goes out for revenge who are the Russian Mafia and another Chinese Mafia. This all happens when he saves the life of a young Chinese girl who has a memory like a computer 💻. Great film all in all. 


This is more the sci-fi style of film 🎥 with a difference. Action packed and in the film there are two bad guys with great fight action by Mike Bisping and Charles Lee. This is a film staring Noel Clarke and his character jumps time to the future and past due to other controlling forces. Great action fight scenes by all. 


We all know Vin Diesel as Riddick. This is the second in the trilogy of films. There are great fight scenes in the film and an amazing story which is easy to follow. This is the one that makes any man want to be like Riddick, all hardcore and emotionless at times. 
Well I hope you like what I have put up and remember it’s just my simple opinion.
