Living in a house has been great so far - not

It is actually fun, don’t let my blog post mislead you.

When we chose the house, its location was an important factor. After careful consideration, we clearly made a good decision: only a 2 minute walk from the Gillingham weed corner, 5 minutes from where all the stabbings happen and you might have to walk down to the other end of the High Street, but it shouldn’t take more than 7 minutes to get in a gang fight if that’s what you fancy on a Friday night.

Being British is hard, innit? - how I became a roadman

I had been learning English in school for nine years before I moved here and I was confident I’d be capable of having an everyday conversation. Turns out I was learning the wrong language the whole time. What people speak here is not English, it’s roadman.

But it’s calm, I’m slowly, but steadily becoming an expert.

"No one cares about this sport only you play"

Shaky hands, racing heart, sweaty palms, nausea (bit of an exaggeration here) - this is my big chance to clear the name of something I’m so passionate about: KORFBALL. And well, to clear my name in front of all the people who think I’m crazy in love with a sport that doesn’t exist.

What is korfball? I’d rather not fail a thousandth time explaining it, watch the video.

Why am I crazy about it? Unfortunately, there’s no video about this one.
