Oz Blog....Help?

Calling all lovely Sutton Bloggers, Im leaving UK on 25th Feb and obviously need to set up a nice new blog for my trip.

Previously Mr EB has suggested 'chrisisonholidayforayearhaha' and 2nite 'imtravellingroundtheworldandyou'renot'.

Does anyone have any nice short ideas for the name of my blog? Im thinking something like 'random_one_down_under'???

Also, I want to say a big honest thank you to every blogger from SCBC for being so wonderful. 2day I had a really mixed day, from feeling so very alone/isolated early afternoon to being surrounded by amazing friends, old and new, at The Vesey. Although Im about to embark on an exciting year round the world a part of me wishes I could spend more time with you all, especially getting to know some of my newer friends...... but hey all in God's time eh?!

You're all Bea...utiful!

For those of you that listenend to the Chris Moyles' show on Radio1 this morning this will appeal, otherwise you'll just see this as another random post from the Random One:

Dave's tedious link included "there are 3 types of doors, push, pull and revolving", which later lead to the rest of the team correcting Dave as there in fact many other types of doors:

  • Sliding
  • Garage (up and over)
  • Gull Wing Door (like on sports-cars and the delorien)
  • George-Doors
  • Dumble-door
  • Front Door
  • Trap door
  • Back door
  • Side Door
  • Patio Door
  • Mor-door

Also, I wanted a reason to post a picture of the Delorien on my blog!

Pls feel free to comment on other doors.......

Struggles & Maddness

Correct me if Im wrong but it seems the Blogging World of Sutton/Erdingtonshire has slowed down alot in 2007. Could it be a new strain of influenza that the Jolly Green Giant has unleashed?

I feel like I left my senses, motivation and memory in 2006, so far 2007 feels really strange. Ok I haven't exactly lazed around doing nothing all day but I can't remember much of whats been happening! That said I've been doing a mix of activities this week, filing and shredding with Heidi, DIY with Beci, TV watching and of course more preparations for Australia trip!

Maybe Im just lacking in motivation not having a reason to wake up and get going in the mornings.

Last night mum had a phonecall telling her our fake Auntie (94) had passed away in her sleep, I feel kinda bad for not being too upset...... I was upset but my tears were for Matt as it brought everything flooding back. Please pray for me, alots going through my head right now and I want to be level-headed when I get on the plane at Heathrow in 10days.

P.S. Anyone up for an outing to a local cinema next week? (Not Tuesday eve as Im on PJ's team who will win the Curry Quiz Night)

If anyone see's Mrs FLN tell her to put leashes on Robbie & Rudolf or they may get lost in the white stuff!


Mrs Teapot here's a belated Mr-Man post for your 21st B'day last weekend:

"Mr Funny lives in a teapot shaped house, and drives a shoe shaped car. If there's something funny that he can do, Mr Funny will do it. You'd better get ready to laugh when Mr Funny visits!"

Birmingum, it's gureat?

Saturday The Random One met an Aussie friend who also happens to be a Villa fan, and went along to to Villa Park to witness a vitory for the original claret and blue against the claret and blue pretenders (West Ham). It was a great match with Villa winning 1-0 thanks to a goal from new signing John Carew...prompting a comical new chant from the Holte End "Carew, Carew, Carew's On Fire" As it was my last visit to Villa Park before going on my trip round the world, I took my new camera along so here are a few snaps from the game....

A Gareth Barry corner..... which came to nothing!

This one is for Mrs Teapot & the Pixie to drool over...

One thing that did come up earlier in the day, I tried to show Mark some of the 'sights' of Birmingham but after going round the Bull Ring and to the Town Hall I ran out of ideas! Granted Millenium Point could have been visited. This morning Helen suggested the NIA & Sealife Centre & IMAX Theatre but what other landmarks would you suggest be part of a 'Birmingham-Tour'?
