Happy Birthday Aaron.

I wrote this for Sally.... 


Even though you’re gone, 


Even though you’re gone,
I can almost hear you calling my name...
Felt your touch of your hand,
and see your smile light up a room.

Even though you’re gone,
I still feel you live on, in my heart,
Through the tears that I have cried,
Feel warmth of your memory
As I share a favourite story about you,

Even though you’re gone.
I am thankful that we had the chance to make those memories,
So thankful that you made my life so much richer.
And despite the loss , I feel today
if I had to do it all again.
I wouldn’t change a thing, as I know our love lives forever.

Happy birthday Aaron

Please Sponsor Trojan 'Tin Man' Gayle

On the 5th June, I am taking part in a charity walk called “Walk for Life” in aid of Crusaid. Crusaid provides information and support on the issues of HIV and Aids both in the UK and overseas.

Since 1989, the Walk has raised millions of pounds in support of the various initiatives run by Crusaid, both in the UK and overseas, particularly Africa, where the rate of infections remain disproportionately high. In the UK, Crusaid has funded many projects and services crucial to the ongoing support for literally thousands of people affected by HIV and AIDS, including the unique Hardship Fund, which provides a financial lifeline for those living with the virus in extreme poverty.

If you would like to support this great cause, please click on the link below and make a donation online

Fighting For Your Something You believe In.


It seem that every other day, people somewhere is protesting for change. From the Middle East, USA (tea parties) and across the world, people are demanding change. At the present moment Libya is fighting for change and the Libyans within the UK where demonstrating near where I work and I was able to take this picture. The picture above is showing supporters for the current regime, supporters for change were right of the picture (not seen).

This post is all those people fighting for what they believe in and their efforts to affect change through peaceful and transparent means.

I Will Follow You - A poem

I will follow you
I will follow you,
with my heart, soul and spirit,
this is what I will do for you.

I will follow you,
thru my doubts, my fears and a few tears
this is what you do for love.

I will follow you,
thru the laughter,
the joy and our memories
this is what I have built with you.

I will follow you,
and watch my youth fade,
and feel you drift away
do I continue to follow?,
this is what you do for love.

but when I need you,
to help me realise my dreams,
to hold me when I feel weak,
to be what I need you to be,
why do I feel so betrayed?

Trafalgar Square installation - Dig Toilets Not Graves - Water Aid.

Trafalgar Square installation delivers a powerful message on sanitation on the tenth anniversary of the Millennium Declaration.

Ten years to the day since the UN Millennium Declaration was adopted (8 September 2000), international charity WaterAid today demonstrated how billions of people around the world are literally living and dying in their own faeces.

A dramatic installation of 167 spades standing upright in grass was erected in London's iconic Trafalgar Square to symbolise the number of children who die from diarrhoea in the developing world every hour. Click on here to discover more: http://www.digtoilets.org/

Croydon Town Hall

Built 1895

The present Town Hall is Croydon's third. There is confusion over the date of construction of the very first Town Hall, but it is believed to be either 1566 or 1609. The second was built in 1808 to serve the growing market and trading centre but was demolished following completion of the present Town Hall in 1895.

The present Town Hall designed by local architect Charles Henman was officially opened by TRH the Prince and Princess of Wales on 19th May 1896. Constructed in red bricks from Wrotham in Kent, with Portland Stone dressings and green Westmoreland slates for the roof the building underwent many design changes throughout construction, including the widening of the main staircase to be of 'adequate size and importance'.

Parts, including the former court rooms, have been converted for the Lifetimes Museum and exhibition galleries. The original public library, which for some years was used as the local studies library, is now the David Lean cinema, and the whole complex is known as Croydon Clocktower. After 100 years, a brand new public library occupies the area shown on Charles Henman's original plans as "space available for future extension".

Since the mid-1980s the Town Hall has been completely renovated and restored, and the Mayor's Parlour and the committee rooms have reverted to their original purpose.

Basically its simply beautiful.

The Albert Memorial - Hyde Park - London


The Albert Memorial is situated in Kensington Gardens, London, England, directly to the north of the Royal Albert Hall. It was commissioned by Queen Victoria in memory of her beloved husband, Prince Albert who died of typhoid in 1861. The memorial was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the Gothic revival style. Opened in 1872, with the statue of Albert ceremonially "seated" in 1875, the memorial consists of an ornate canopy or pavilion containing a statue of Prince Albert facing south. The memorial is 176 feet tall, took over ten years to complete, and cost £120,000.
