When you want to…


So last few days I’ve had to not release some blogs as they were a bit far on the obserdity meter, and to be fair wasn’t really blog material, I mean who wants to hear about a metaphorical dead Rabbit? (Nobody).

But I’ve now decided that I just need to forget about recent events to stop getting myself annoyed with it all and just basically chill. I mean this year in general has been negative as a whole, its not just one or two things, and dwelling on that wont help with being positive. The year is about to go into its third month and there’s still time to turn it around. Still, there has been one good thing, which I will talk about hopefully in the few coming weeks.

I’m up later than usual tonight. I woke up at like 6.15 this morning and although i kind of got back to sleep for about 5 minutes, I had to get up and get something. I can only wake up a certain amout of times before my sleep just floats away and I’m forced to start my day. Thanks to that, I had a nap, something I hate because i feel terrible afterwards. I don’t mind a proper sleep for because I wake up fine, but anything under 3 hours and I’m almost sick and dizzy and just feel blugh. Plus it means I’m not tired when it’s actual bed time and I’m up at 1am having a shower.

On that, time to shower. I will update with something worth talking about tomorrow ūüôā

Fishies


Today we got some new members of our family. 3 little Guppies named Chandler, Joey and Ross.

You can’t really see all of them right now, but we’ve already planned for some tank mates for them so hopefully that will happen in the coming weeks. I will watch them though to see if they sleep. I’ve never had fish before. I used to look after them for my friend Paula, along with her kids. Paula is not a fish. She does not have fish children. I have the theme to Bubble Guppies in my head. Aphre is great finding them. She’s great in general.

Today we went to Aphre’s parent’s house and had some dinner which was really tasty. It’s always nice to go there. It’s also nice to watch Finn run around their living room and see them enjoy his company.

Tomorrow is a new week, let’s see what adventures it brings!

Is all good.


So the lack of posts say that everything is all good,but should just mention a few things that are mystical.

So I have a new job, however I won’t be releasing where it is until i know when I will be on, but people who read this blog regularly will be aware of recent things that have happened on the job front, and this latest one is very interesting.

Aphre has also been assisting me with a little matter recently which I’m hoping will clear up soon, and theres a couple of other things in the pipeline. Some of the things I said about a month ago regarding and online show are in hand.

Today, Rich came over. I’ve not seen him for a while. We went to spoons and just caught up really, telling me about his recent life things, it was nice to see him again. I heard a story about a peanut factory, and another about play-doh. One other thing that made me laugh is that I learnt that pork scratchings are imported from Vietnam – I may have found that funnier than it actually was. I need to make a proper effort to visit him in swindon along with a few other people. That’s about it really.

Low tech


So today has been interesting. I’ve had to tidy the flat today. Not done the best job but will do (the kitchen was left until tomorrow as I’ve been feeling a little under the weather). We have people coming to view the flat tomorrow.  Think it’s weird that letting agents let you see the place while the tennents are still there because there may be some changes to the property or things they need to fix before releasing it. Our place for instance needs a lot done to it before it’s released and it’snothing we did, it was the builders.

That wasnt the interesting bit though, because today my friend carl brought a mega old mixer round for me to borrow/use along with some old cart machienes and some carts.t0 The downside is that he couldnt find the power leads to thrm so if im going to olay with them I either have to wait a few days to see if they show up, or get some new power cables. They are Sonifex cart players from the 80s or something, and when I get the power working I will get to play with some fun old jingles from Hospital Radio Swindon from 1991.

The desk has got to be mega old tho. It used to belong to Swindon Cable inthe 80s, and it was in studio 2 at Swindon FM. It’s an Alice desk  and it’s a little scratchy on the faders and probably full of dust which is why it is glitchy. It also complains if you have the wrong things plugged in. It doesn’t deal wih new technology well. I’ll be giving it a proper vacuum tomorrow and hopefully see if I can get Fader start to work.

I might even play around with itonline so you can listen. If i do, you can see it on http://www.johnnyrobinson.co.uk/playground

Now though it’s bed time

Love day 2016


So i just remembered that I have a blog to update. Today is Love day (Valentines day) and I thought I would share my pictures from today. I know that when I had no partner I would post up a mystical post or an anti valentine post, but for the last 2 that hasn’t been the case. If you are not up for mushy stuff then maybe check out the music video for Duck Sauce’s Big bad wolf. I’m not going to post it up, just do so e research and be prepared to be horrified.

This is what Aphre had did.

Those hearts have memories of our times together. Picking 10 at random, this is what they say:
1) Fighting off squirrels to have an easter egg hunt
2)Finding out where ducks go at nignt
3) listening to her practice her job interview presentatio  a milliin times
4) going for dinner at Frankie and Bennies when the birthday song kept waking Finn up
5) Chasing a bird around the living room
6) The first boxing day sausage fest
7) Meeting Aphre every day from the bus stop every day when she finished work at Endsleigh
8) Stop Motion Animation
9) I got Shot 9 times plow plow (when I had my tooth out)
10) Making Ruby’s Minecraft cake.

I also got some Ferrero Rocher and a memory box, a vanilla candle and a rose. I made her two actual mixtapes that I drew the covers for, some strawberry and cream lindt thingies and flowers . The mixtapes took me ages to sort out and pick. I had to dig out my old radio, plug it into my desk and record it in real time, and as personal cassette players are not a thing we have these days, dug that out from my old tech bag so she could listen to them.

Some Days


Some days I feel like that maybe my life would be good as a TV show. I don’t mean in like a Truman show type way, or that my life is a sitcom. Just that I guess my life is laid out like one and would be easy to make into some sort of series.

Today isn’t one of those days as it’s pretty much been making something for¬†Aphre for Valentines day – which I won’t go into because then it won’t be a surprise.

But it has been a thought that has been in my mind recently. If it was a drama documenting my life since I left uni in an American type season format (Which by the way I think is the better format of series). Last season could have finished with a happily ever after story getting 2 radio jobs and seemingly actually going somewhere.

However what actually happened was that they loved the previous series and in a shocking twist, when this season aired, it’s me behind my laptop editing some Donald Trump thing and the start of a thrilling season because of what happened since the last season. This season would have been a very interesting one too due to now not only good things in the pipeline but other “story lines” that have cropped up would have been so entertaining. That actually means entertaining to other people, but for me a lot of being stunned by the stupidity of others.

I also think some of the stuff Finn does is quite funny, mainly because it seems like things little boys do, which I’m just always amazed by. He says “Oh” now when I say no to something, and knows what I say, he doesn’t know how to say them yet or know what they all mean, but when I say “Get your cup” he knows what that is now, and knows what “Don’t touch” means, but whether he decides to listen is another story.

Anyway back to life, (back to reality) I’m popping into Swindon Tomorrow to pick up mu niece for her to have a sleep over tomorrow night in Gloucester, then back on Thursday morning with Finn. I’m hoping that all goes well, especially as Mia has never been here by herself without my sister or my mum.

Mysteriously on Friday I’m off to Hereford! What could it all mean? If anything¬†interesting happens I will post it up on here.

Dream Watch – The Bones In The Water.


So I had a dream last night. I feel like I am still tired enough to go back to sleep even though Finn is up and I’ve given him breakfast and put on the Mr Tumble Channel.

So I watched a few episodes of Bones before I went to bed. For those who don’t know, it’s a crime drama where the episode usually starts with a corpse getting discovered in an unexpected way. This was how the dream panned out.

There were people working in the water works place, and a blood covered skelliton was found dangling from a filter thing, and tue body was taken to the lab, where they discovered that the body had been bitten by various little sea creatures. I had to work with Hodgins to pick up some of the sea creatures. While we were gathering some from a suspected area where we would find those creatures I picked up various creatures of  sea creatures and land creatures near by and took them back to the lab where Cam (in charge of the lab) and Hodgins explained what the situation was, and Brennan confirming that the same creatures were responsible for the abbrasions on the bone and explains what happened most of the tissue.

She also said that the water would also take the skin off. Hodgins managed to find two sets of skin inside some of the creatures, a small sample of the possible culprit was found inside one of the bigger shell creatures I’d picked up.

Cam also had to clear up the creatures I’d left in the lab as I was called out to speak to Brennan and Booth. She picked one up that was in the process of eating the other one and she said “Yuck”… which is ironic considering she deals with dead mangled bodies.

Then Booth showed up and Brennan said we would be looking for someone with nibbles on their ancle as big chunks of their ancles were found inside the creatures. My mum also came to visit me, and she was all like “oh yeah, they would be killing because they are hiding something really important that look like really daft things. I was told to go the the water place where the maintainance¬† people said there was an object blocking the machiene. One was a red item (i cant remember what it was)¬† and when i took it down, Angela said that it was too small and that i needed something bigger, then i picked up a baby toy with a big diamo d on the top. We took it to Brennan and she said that it was made from diamond and was not really a baby toy.

My mum was hanging around with some other FBI agents helping solve the crime, and she kept singing and they were betting annoyed. Then my mum came and found me. They were having an office clear out so they put all my files in the area, where she said her ex husband came round and he had phoned the police because of me the other day. When I was a kid I’d apparently made a poster about a lizard, and that it was infected with H.E (I have no idea what H.E is and wasn’t a thi g that happened in real life) and from what I gather my mum must have had a lizard. The poster was found in big poster tubes in the loft.

She then reminded me of something from the old radio show on swindon 105.5 where started singing the floral dance (this wasn’t a real life thing either).

Booth said they found the man who had bites on his ancles mid leg, and that Tarrantula hairs were found on their clothes and feet, and that they’d killed the person because they woukdn say where the diamonds were in rage, then regretted going it because theyd never find the diamond.

The guy who sang Vanessa Carlton’s ‘a thousand miles’ from that film White Chicks and Brooklyn 99 was one of the agents for some reason.

I think I’m nearly awake now. (by the way I had the Ramsey Lewis Trio version in my head but this one sounds more Bonesy)

You probably think this blog is about you


I know I’ve used the title in one way or another before, but I like to play.

I bet you do though. You might be right, you might be wrong, but the general idea is to make you think it might be.

You and your thoughts, I know what is goin on, and what you’re trying to do. The thing is you think the blog is about you but you don’t know and admitting that it is will make you think it is but it’s not, or is it?

Anyway you, peeping in on my blog to see if I’m talking about you. You’re so vain!

Sleepy Saturday


So today is really sleepy. The only thing that’s happened today that is of any interest is my inbox filling with spam/bull/people who have no clue. Oh and I went to the shop. A guy from the co-op has recently noticed I go in a lot. I got Aprhe some nice things last week because I try to be a good fianc√©. He saw me last night and was surprised that I remembered what I’d got last week because many people don’t. I explained that i was in a lot because I always forget something.

I will probably post again later to make up for lost posts.
