Progress on job front

Even though I am not well, I do still want to do something with my life.

A few weeks ago I saw a post saying that Inrix (providers of travel news to radio stations) were looking for someone for Sunday morning.

I recorded a demo using the information they supplied, and had a call 'can I pop in for a chat next week'

Fingers crossed - hope I get it

I will only be working 5 and 3/4 hours a week, but its a step in the right direction, and its using my current skill set....

Customer Service Skills (for answering phones and talking to people)
Voice (for presenting travel updates on radio)

If I get it, I will be heard on radio stations in the South West of England (including BBC Radio Gloucestershire, BBC Radio Bristol and BBC Radio Devon!)

Car passed its MOT

Well my car has passed its MOT, after a few things needed doing to it. I took it in to National on Cowbridge Road East in Canton.

The first being indicator bulb, it was a faded almost clear light when it should have been more orange, another problem I had that needed sorting was the CV joint dust cover which was warn on the driver side.

Now I had this done only the week befor at Bowsher's Garage on Cowbridge Road East. I have now set the two garages against each other.

I messaged National's customer service team to lodge a complaint with them, also lodged a complaint with Bowsher's. One of them was telling fibs about that part.

Bowsher's have no reason to lie to me about not doing the work on my car last week, and neither do National about the problem they said needed doing.

Bowsher's did say that a number of National customers have gone accross to them after poor work being carried out.... hmmmmm

I'm not sure who to trust or beleive with reguard to this matter, so will wait on the outcome.

It would be good to hear from others who have had problems with National.

Party 2015

Well the festival season has kicked off with Troyfest 2015 at Baskerville Hall Hotel in Powys. I voluntered along with my best friend Neil. It was one amazing festival, and the atmosphere was really great, and the people were really great as well (volunteers, security and festival goers)

Then last weekend was my 40th Birthday Weekend - really let my self go for that one (thanks to Neil, Jamie and Skinner for making my 40th one to remember!)

Got more festivals to go to as a volunteer, and as interviewer for my show and Bro Radio

So far coming up is....

Lunar Festival (volunteer)
Nozstock (reporter/interviewer)

With the above in mind, I've decided one thing... to live life to its fullest, party and enjoy my self.  With all my aches and pains and other problems, I have to learn to live with them, and not let them dictate what I can do.  I can't live life wrapped up in cotton wool in a box marked fragile, I have to live life out side the box and enjoy it while I can.

I fear I may end up turning in to a party animal... but its time I lived life and dug my self out from the cushions of the sofa and stop being a couch potato.

A few years back I was getting out for walks, and that is one thing I must get back in to the habbit of.

Life is for the living, and I must get on with it and live it.


LUNAR FESTIVAL was just fantastic. Lots of great acts including the Radiophonic Workshop. This is one festival I will be volunteering at next year

NOZSTOCK took place 24th to the 26th July. It was a great festival, some fantastic acts including Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer, De La Soul and the main headliner for me Martha Reeves & The Vandellas. It was a bit wet and muddy though, but that didn't dampen things too much
