The National Guacamole Day Weekend Share #202

To celebrate this wonderful day, I am serving nachos, loads of them and as Guacamole and Nachos come from Mexico, I shall be serving Mexican wine, Mezcal and Margarita and for those who don’t want an alcholic drink Horchata, Tejate and Aguas Frescas.

I did my reasearch for this one. Lets have a party

As everything in life there are rules, if you are new or just need reminding here they are

Rules are very simple,

  1. You can share up to five links
  2. They can be a post, your blog, someone elses post or blog
  3. You can comment on here from now till 11.30pm on Friday evening (GMT time)
  4. I shall start sharing on Saturday till 11.30pm Sunday (GMT time)
  5. It can be anything you want, however I will have final say if I think its is classed as an ism (racism, sexism etc)

Suggestions for you:

If you do share something, make sure you go back to check if anyone has left a comment for you.

If you are busy at the weekend but still want to join in, you can email me and I will try and put your links in.

If you would like to tweet, share, or reblog and get more people involved then go for it. Otherwise don’t be shy, you have nothing to lose by sharing something.

So if you have a post that you want more exposure, or maybe even your blog. Maybe you have seen someone elses post and thought I need to get that out, then share it. Its all a good giggle.

Just to add on this, don’t worry if you don’t follow me, just add a link, I love reading new blogs, you will still get approved (as long as you have followed the rules) and then reblogged, so if you have taken a look at my blog and thought, not something I am interested, well you are weird, but thats your choice, but your blog or link might interest another one of my followers.

Well thats another room done

I finally finished the lounge spring clean. I hurt, I moved furniture, I chased spiders away, I hoovered. I put everything back and it all looks lovely.

As an added bonus, I cleaned out the hoover as well, which hadn’t been done in a while.

This now leaves Thursday and Friday afternoons for me to do not much with. I think, I am sure I can find something, there is always lego sorting or sewing or something. I may get a headstart on the massive springclean that is the kitchen.

Maybe swear at the government a bit, that is always fun to do. I am not sure yet, I will say the flat does feel cleaner and spacier, even though I haven’t gotten rid of much, in the next coming months as long as things stay as they are, I am going to start resaving for all the furniture we still need. I just need to get us back on track financially and get Christmas out the way.

That is an unusual night

During lockdown, it seemed to become a tradition, that when I went for a walk with the dog after midnight, I would either be stopped by the police or the police car would slow down enough to check to see me.

Because I wear dark big baggy clothes and a hat, it is difficult to tell what sex I am, but I also assume that when someone is out doing something bad, they don’t take their dog, but maybe that is me.

Now restictions have been lifted, I see police cars a lot less, I do seem to get asked for directions alot by people though, anyone who knows me, knows they wouldn’t ask me how to get to bedroom from the front door, I am so bad. Not helped by the fact I have reached the grand old age of 39 and still struggle with my left and right.

Anyway that is just to give you some background, to help you understand what happened last night. As we are walking I hear what I think is some type of siren, not a massive problem normally unless you live near a high-security psychiatric hospital, that houses some of the worst criminals in the UK.

But we live far enough from it that the siren is normally faint (they test it on a Tuesday) this sounded closer, so I assumed that it was something else, as I am mooching along with the dog sniffing at everything,I round the corner where I am walking parrell to the park, the park is kept locked at night and is pitch black. Then I hear the helicopter, its half 12 at night, the only helicopters that will generally run at that time of night, is the coastguard, the hospital and the police. Since it circled the park and me, around 5 times I am guessing it was the police searching for something. I assumed they were using some infra red, so could see I was a human or possibly an ape standing up walking a four legged thing.

But, the helicopter with the siren that could come from a high-security psychiatric hospital walking round the edge of a dark park. The fences suddenly didn’t look that high, but also I assumed that if they could see me, they could see if anyone suddenly jumped out at me.

I got to the main road and the helicopter abandoned me and flew off somewhere, I keep walking up and I could hear some more noises, turns out they were doing night road works, this is a problem for my dog, so means I would have to go down an alley way, luckly there is one with bright lights, meaning we only cut 5 minutes off the walk.

As I am debating this, a police car comes up behind me, I had seen it in the reflection of a bus stop with its lights on, but as it came past me it turned its lights off, I assumed the emergency had finished, but now I was on high alert that something was happening. Now either this police car came past me 3 more times, or another 3 police cars came past me.

I disappeared down the alley way and as I did, I heard the police sirens of 2 different police cars suddenly turn on.

I did what any completely innocent person would do, know that unless they got out and ran after me, were going to take ages to drive round. I bolted it back to my flat and hid.

Still can’t find out what happened though last night, but they are not taking me in.

Smash, Bang

I live in a block of four flats, we all keep ourselves to ourselves really, but recently or maybe I didn’t notice it as much, someone is slamming their door to announce that they are living or they are coming home.

But its multiple times, to get to any of the flats there are 2 doors to go through one to get into the block and your front door, so why does someone feel the need to slam a door 5 times.

I counted it today, because it is driving me nuts, I just want a nice quiet life, not to suddenly jump out of my skin when someone slams their door unexpectatly, but its now happening so often, I don’t jump.

I mutter under my breathe some rude words and move on after the first one and then it happens again, today on the 5th one I opened my front door to yell out cut it out on the 6th, but they had obviously realised they had pushed it to far, and no more slamming happened for a while.

I think next time it happens, I am going to send Gizmo to scream at them for waking him up again, because I am not dealing with his complaining again.

Busy then chill

This weekend was fun, on Saturday I went out with my mum for lunch, we stopped off at my grandmother’s grave to give it a clean. I will say there were no pokestops at this graveyard, which did not bode well for either myself or Monkey.

But the lunch was fun and Mum had picked somewhere with a playground, so Monkey had a whale of a time.

I did find it exhausting though, but it was great to see her, on Sunday, we just spent the day chilling to be honest, I think I needed it, because on Friday, I did a lot of adulting and phoning around people and sorting things out plus a surpise phonecall, from no one that important but it put me in a tizz and my anxiety was sky high by the time I went to pick Monkey up, so I was still recovering, also on Sunday there was a pokemon thing, so we had to be prepared for that.

All in all a good weekend and I have started this week on a good mindset. I spent Monday starting to spring clean the lounge. I think its going to be a bigger job that I thought, but I will hopefully crack on with it over the next few days and get it all done.

That was my weekend in a nutshell. How was yours?

Where in the World: Armenia

This week I tried to do Western Asia, I managed to name all 19 countries, and placed 7 incorrectly, Kuwait, Armenia, Georgia, Yenman, Oman, Quata and Lebanon.

The way I normally do is see which countries haven’t visited me and then do a post on those, since all 7 have visited me, I am going to go alphabetically, so lets learn something about Armenia

  1. Armenia is a landlocked country, bordered by Turkey to the west, Georgia to the North, Azerbaijan to the East and Iran to the south,
  2. Its home to the oldest winery
  3. In 1915, the Otterman Empire orchastrasted the extermination of 1.5 million Armenians, meaning many Armenians fled the country. There are thought to be 5.6 million people of Aermanian descent living abroad compared to the 3 million living in Armenia
  4. The capital, Yerevan is one of the oldest populated cities and it known as the pink city, as many buildings are constructed from rosy volcanic rock
  5. Chess is compulsary in schools
  6. Armenia has monuments in the shape of Armenian Alphabets, to celebrate its anniversary
  7. 99% od Armanians can read and write
  8. It is one of the few nations that that is made up of only ethnic group, 97% of the population identify as Armanian
  9. If you like apricots this is the place for you and it is considered to be the homeland of the apricot
  10. The Duduk is the national musical symbol for Armenia it is made of apricot wood

Hope you learnt something about this country and if you come from there please say Barev Dzez (I hope I got that right)
