Car parking!

20th October 2014

When someone's watching it's always harder to park your car, but I don't think this person knew she was being filmed!

A sharp exit

16th October 2014

Have you ever made a sharp exit from somewhere? Has something wound you up so much you just had to leave or perhaps you’ve embarrassed yourself so much you really felt heading for the exit was the best option? Poor old Michael McIntyre has done just that this week at one of his gigs after a very rude member of the audience persisted in using her mobile during his performance. Michael refused to return to the stage for 15 minutes until she stopped texting her friends.

Good Morning Britain’s Richard Arnold also left the set of the live TV show this week after a rather unfortunate occurrence left him red faced in front of millions...

Go Sober for October & win £50 for dinner

30th September 2014

Go Sober for October

One in three people are affected by the terrible disease that is cancer so it stands to reason that one day it will in some way affect you or someone you know.  I’ve lost my Nan and my Uncle to the BIG C and they were both given amazing support by the nurses and staff from Macmillan.  Macmillan Cancer Support do just that, lend support, be it with money worries, advice about work or even just being someone to talk too and so much more!

In my time at KLFM I think it's fair to say I've done a lot for the community and charitable causes but I don't think I’ve really done anything which is going to affect me quite as much is what I'm about to do!

I'm sure you'll agree with me there is nothing better after a long day at work than going home to maybe just a little glass of wine perhaps two or three nights a week and certainly at the weekend.  After a stressful day it's definitely needed and unfortunately in my case if it's been a good day sometimes it's nice to celebrate too.  I wouldn't say I drink a lot but I certainly do enjoy a glass of something after a day at work which is why I'm beginning to wonder why I've agreed to take part in “Sober for October” .

“Sober for October” with Macmillan Cancer will be a small change to my life but will hopefully help improve the lives of people facing cancer. Could you swap Sambuca for squash or give up wine and go for more walks?

Big red and scary!!

26th September 2014

Have you an allergy? I suffer with hay fever and can’t get to close to cats and dogs unless I want to explode on the spot which is only slightly worse than the runny nose in the summer.

My wife has been flaring up over the past few months and we’re not quite sure what's causing it.  We tried to remove things from her diet and monitor what she touches, but no luck.  It’s got so bad that it was suggested she have a patch test at the hospital.  My poor wife came home a couple of days ago with about 50 patches on her back all with different things that she might be allergic to underneath. When it came to taking them off it was quite funny, as Jo is quite ticklish, every time I tried to pull one of them off she was in fits of giggles. It took ages to do standing in the kitchen, who knows what the kids thought was going on!

Out of all of them one of them did flare-up, it was a nasty violent red colour which after trip back to the hospital we discovered meant my wife is allergic to nickel.   Not ideal as she's a secretary at the QE, Nickel is in everything door handles, printer cartridges, her Id badge, her makeup, her knife & fork come dinner time and even plain and simple paperclips which the hospital have agreed to replace with plastic ones just for her! 

It’s a complete nightmare, but at least now we know what’s causing the problems!

If you're allergic to nickel I’d very much welcome your suggestions on avoiding and coping with the allergy.

Dippy Eggs!

24th September 2014

Tonight for only the second time in my life I'm planning on watching the Great British Bake Off. As I've said before I'm rubbish in the kitchen, according to my little girl I can always make the perfect 'Dippy Egg', "10 out 10" everytime she says!

Gordon, Jamie, Mr Hollywood move over.... Here's how you do it, simple!
