Advantage me

Hola. Hope you are well.

Those of you who have been reading these blog posts recently will know that I’ve had troubles with ‘The Bell Jar’, well you’ll be glad to know these troubles are finally over. I managed to locate a copy of the book in a library near work, read the 8 pages missing  from my copy (‘Her With One Permanent’s copy to be precise). I then flicked through the rest of the book to see if all the pages were there (the trust has gone), it was a good job I did as there were further pages missing towards the end of the book. As I’m not a member of this library, I had to photocopy these pages to read at a later date. Does this kind of thing happen with Kindles?

Last week in an English lesson the pupils were doing an exercise where they had to write down 3-5 people who inspire them. Some went for Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama, various pop stars, family members and one boy went for little old me. He said, not only am I a comedian, who does comedy poems, I also help in school. So I’m officially an inspirer, in many ways I’m this country’s Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela rolled into one.

Yesterday, ‘HWOPJ’ and I went Christmas shopping. During the trip it struck me that at this time of year most men are dragged around  shopping centres by their missus but surely there must be exceptions to this rule. So if there is a man reading this who is in a long-term relationship,with a woman and has never had to do the Christmas shop, contact me and tell us all your secret. You can contact me via the comments button.

In other news, I’m thinking of buying an electrical toothbrush. I’ve never had one before and I’m quite excited, probably more excited than I should be. One reason for my excitement is that I’m going to buy the toothbrush with my Boots advantage points I’ve amassed. I currently have £26:06, feel free to let me know if you have more money on a loyalty card, and also feel free to give me any advice on electric toothbrushes.

And Finally… as next week will be Christmas Eve I won’t be blogging, so this will be my last blog post of the year. So in addition to thanking everyone for reading this blog throughout the year and wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, I’ve also written an Acrostic Christmas poem for you (see below).

Til next year, have a safe festive period!
