Things I wish I hadn't said

We all make mistakes.

Here are some verbal mistakes of mine, in ascending order of cringe-making, fear and embarrassment.

If anyone asks

My beloved and my son and I have just applied for New Zealand citizenship (this has really nothing to do with the fact that the Abs have just won the Rugby World Cup (eat mud you cheese-eating surrender monkeys)

Just saying

It's been a long, long road.

Just an experiment to see if I could create an animated gif and have blogger show it.

And of course to support the All Blacks.

Being; Becoming; A Grumpy Old bastard (1)

Domestic F*cking Bliss

Absolutely gorgeous day today.


Some of my friends have mentioned that they don't seem to be able to add comments to my posts.  I didn't set anything to stop them, but blogger seems to be having problems, especially if you are using Internet Explorer.  I would suggest changing to Firefox, which doesn't seem to give this problem.

I've also changed a couple of other settings which should now allow your comments to work.

Please feel free to try commenting as a test on his post.
