just too busy
























sea fishing

It’s official, sea fishing is one of my new favourite passtime, it has so many things that are really beneficial to me, there is the competition between us guys to see who is the best, there is endless time at sea which is a great place to gather your thoughts and focus on what’s important in life and there’s also the thrill of the hunt, something very primitive when you can catch your own fish, hunters mentality I guess.

You guys need to check out North East Tackle Supplies (or NETS as it’s know), they have such a wide range of gear and some of my personal favourite brands like savage gear and Imax, alternatively you can shop via category which is handy for me as I’m only interested in the sea fishing tackle section at the minute.

I really want to expand on this current hobby because it’s rare that outside of my job I do much in the way of fun, it seems like work is taking over at the minute and I promised myself that this year I would at least do 1 activity that I truly enjoyed, although my credit card is taking a bashing I really feel like it’s a great investment because after the weekend is over I can go back to work and feel really refreshed, fishing is a great social and mental break, one of the best experiences I have had and even led me to researching fishing trips via fishingtrips.co.uk – hoping to take a few new friends with me!

Talk soon.

just one more round

It appears I’ve now got somewhat of a reputation for being a bit of an eco warrior, I’ve recently learned that one of the best ways of doing this is in the alternative energy resources, thanks to recent government changes we are seeing more and more of our energy needs being produced by greener energy but that doesn’t always mean it’s more available.

Recently I installed a log burning fire in the hope that I could reduce my energy bills and maybe help the environment out a little more, it seems like more people are following my advice and wondering how they can get on board with the changes that I am trying to make it for me the easiest route is just by getting the same log burning fire installed and possibly looking into more greener energy solutions such as electric cars.

I have found this site of a local vendor firewoodhartlepool.wordpress.com so I am hoping to give them a call tomorrow and see if they will give me a discount because I intend to buy in bulk, wish me luck!

a whole new winter

It’s always great what I see some snow hitting the ground, I know it’s rapidly approaching that magical time when my work area is going to be freezing cold and in general I am going to be suffering from frost bite as I hammer keys on my keyboard, it always seems to me that there is never any real benefit to the winter time but I guess that can make up most of nature.

I have always thought that winter time has a great theme to it, it encourages people to be together around an open fire and then attempt to actually sit down and talk about life and interact with each other, it seems these days we don’t get enough of that and it’s kind of sad.

I’ve had a wood burning fire installed outside my house so I ventured down to get some firewood logs the other day, ended up stopping at a local business, found them via google, their website is firewoodhartlepool.co.uk and I ended up buying a few bags when I got down there just so I can keep things stocked up for the cruel winter.


seo firms and how to choose one

SEO is quickly becoming one of the best ways to actually get your business noticed, it seems these days just about everyone is wanting to get ranked higher on Google and services like rentsites.co.uk can help you to achieve this goal but it seems that it’s not without a cost and of course some time investment as well, however it seems these days that old models and advertising is just no where near as effective as SEO so it’s a worth while investment.

SEO and word of mouth are likely the two single most effect ways of actually getting more business for your firm, it seems these days like there is a never ending supply of companies who are offering these services but so few of them actually deliver any real and tangible results and as a result of this we see the entire industry being dragged down and business owners not really understanding the importance of setting up their businesses online.

Trust is often times the biggest barrier to entry these days, if you can get trust for your firm then you can really get alot of sales and clients, it seems like we are now just starting to understand what we need to do in order to gain that trust, online it’s simply a case of getting ranked on Google and letting them give you the trust signal by proxy, however you can also make sure to sign up to a 3rd party website and allow customers to do reviews on your services, this way you can give testimonials very easily.



still around

Wow it’s been a while since I’ve actually posted anything on here but it seems like there is a never ending amount of blogs that you could all be reading in the mean time, one of my favorites is various personal tumblr blogs that are quite artistic and a lot of them are personal accounts of peoples every day lives which is always a fun read since some of them are quite crazy!

I’ve always found it difficult to cope in “the real world” and lately it seems like whatever site I find I can find some people who think and act just like me, it may be very difficult for a natural introvert to actually get ahead in life but having social skills is something that requires practice and learning, its strange to think of it like that but I believe anyone can break out of becoming a very shy person if they choose to.

I am starting a new job very soon so getting the various checks done soon, it’s strange starting back into the world of the employed again but it’s kind of cool as well as it’s a new opportunity to make something and get back on track, I needed a dbs check done so I order one from here hopefully it won’t take too long to get sorted out.

New headphones for the world cup

One of my favorite events of all time is kicking off today, the world cup is something that I watch all the time because I just love to see all the nations with one pure goal despite the fact that there are still so many things that divide the human race one thing is clear with this tournament and that is everyone is bonding over the same game with the same goal – to win!

This is the time I usually invest in some decent equipment to make my viewing pleasure a bit more special, I often have some world cup parties where I invite friends over for a few drinks while we cheer on our favorite team, those nerve wracking moments are even better when sharing with friends, except for the not so nice penalty shoot outs which are always a touchy subject in england.

I browsed on amazon for a while and found a pair of new headphones I’d like to get so I ordered some, in the end I went with the sony mdrzx100w headphones which had decent reviews and are perfect for my laptop since they have quite a long wire, for those of you that don’t know my past I almost always end up destroying my headphones by rolling on top of them or by general wear and tear, I am hoping these ones won’t see the same fate.


a nice night for a gaze

Lately I’ve been spending alot of time looking out my loft window at night time, this is something I often do when I am in the middle of doing some work but can’t seem to tune in to it, night time is nice up here because the sky is really clear and when its a really cold night it looks perfect.

After much debating I decided to finally invest in a decent telescope, I read the review on http://www.telescopehq.co.uk/ and made my purchase from amazon, within a few days I received my telescope and I have to say it’s one of the nicest bits of kit that I have ever invested in, it’s not for the feint hearted at a cost of over £100 but sometimes it’s worth spending some money to ensure you are getting the best.

I have it all set up on a small table now and anytime I get distracted I can just gaze into the sky for a few hours and ponder life’s big questions, it’s really got me thinking about the future and where I fit in this world and for now it seems like I have only one mission and goal and this is to be the best at whatever I want to do in life.
