Ok That's better!!!

We got to Blackpool for the Champ show early on Sunday, we where there before 8am and managed to get a parking place pretty close to the show rings themselvs. Before 9am we had exercised the dogs and they where very comfortable in the van with 3 doors open and water in every cage. As we got back to the ring there was an announcement that all dogs must be removed from vehicles. People started to talk, surely they meant cars? Then came the second announcement, exhibitors where to remove all dogs to from vehicles or they would be forcibly removed and exhibitors would be reported to the K.C. Worried I decided to go to the secretary and ask...I described my van and told her how cool it was in there, but she said yes, you must remove them or they will be removed! The whole situation was crazy, the three dogs had to stand in the baking heat all day when it was lovely and cool in the van. We tried our best, a friend lent us a brolly and I tied that to the chair to get some shade. We had a water spray and a wet towel, but the whole situation was just so stupid. When we returned to the van at 1.45pm it was so cool in there, even my drink in the door was cold enough to drink. There was a lovely breeze flowing through and the dogs where desperate to get back in. I really think that the show society showed a lack of common sense. Of course no one would leave dogs in cars, unless the back was open, but people buy these vans and kit them out ready for days like yesterday with the comfort and safety of the dogs in mind.
Mikey's class, well what can I say? I love him to bits but I'm not blinkered and that's the way it is. They boy did nothing wrong but I feel he was out classed on the day.
Tali was robbed, she didn't deserve to be last! I know she's carrying a bit of weight and her boobies are a little large at the moment...but in her/my defense she's only just finished a course of preds as she's reacting to the grass seeds and she only sold her babies last week...lol Anyway hopefully she'll get her figure back by WKC.
Asha bash did well. Shame it was such a small lass, but that's the way it is. She still has some coat, but she's lost loads. I'm proud of her and though I expected nothing in the challenge I was proud to see her there. Thank you Sarah for all your hard work...and thank you for the compliments about her, it honestly means a lot.
All in all I think we had a lovely day. Speaking personally, I feel I have a great bunch of friends, love you all lots. The fun we have at the shows is what make the days complete....

Easier Affair

I'm not "that" strange...am I? I've been deep in thought about this today, is it me...or is it them? I like most people, I don't make judgments on people, be it colour, sexuality, waistline, clothes or religion... Ok maybe I have to confess religion is a bit of a touchy subject with me, because I usually find religion comes without compassion. Religious people often say they right thing, but usually lack any true feeling, as long as they are seen to be doing the right thing....
Isn't it wrong to judge others on their lives without first walking a mile in their shoes?
Generally I like everyone, until they do something wrong by me or those precious to me. I don't hate easily, though I do hate Jeremy Clarkson with a passion!!! Lol I tend to believe that people have a right to their own opinion, but not when they are obviously wrong of course. Like the racists and the homophobic's who can't see for looking, people like that have been the cause so many wars over the years. It sickens me to the pit of my stomach that someone could be hated for no relevant reasons. I won't make judgements because someone is different, I will always choose to get to know someone before making my mind up about them.
Just this week I drove home from somewhere thinking, "they have been laughing at me behind my back..if not they have obviously discussed me ." Yeah my obsessions, my idiosyncrasies may cause people to talk and judge me. But they do me no harm, and really shouldn't affect anyone else's life, should they? They don't understand what it means to me to be able to escape to a fantasy world, but really do I care? (Maybe!) Though I'm not too proud to say that I drove home with a lump in my throat that day thinking "Why?" Sensitive people should realise they are not the only ones who can be hurt by words, they are not the only ones who escalate the days events in their mind. And these people are the ones who maybe should know better, but hell anything to look good, even at the expense of others close to them!
My house my not be shiny and spotless, but it's a home full of life and love and mostly a happy place, it's where I choose to be. I've seen pain these last few weeks, the death of a loved one is crippling but it's time for us to smile at the memory and try to move on. For sure life is too short not too be able to escape from the heartache, life is too short not to have an escapism.
So am I the strange one here? No, I don't think so really....do you?

And I'm dancing with the freaks now
I'm havin', I'm havin' so much fun, in here
What you sow is what you reap now
I'll do my dance with everyone

Well, let me tell you people, it's an easier affair
Not living my life with other people on my mind
No, got nothing to hide from anyone

Yes, I'm walking on new air just living my life
Better believe, I'm gonna get what's mine
See, I don't have the time for the haters

Is it really three years today since we first went "Outside" together? My third time in your company, my emotions in tatters...again!

The last paragraph of my blog read.....
"George darling you’ve done it again, left my emotions in tatters. Left me needing more, left me more obsessed than I’ve ever been, but left me knowing and understanding why to me you are so special. Not an hour of any waking moment goes past without a thought of you and what you’ve given me. Thank you George for being there when I need a friend, a shoulder to cry on or a little piece of sanity. You’re my inspiration at happy times and my comfort at lower moment. I never need to drown my sorrows in a bottle of wine, not when I’ve got you to turn too. Till the next time we spend an evening together George, Thank you….and I’ll be “Waiting”

You see some things never ever change!!!
I Think I'm Done With The Sofa
I think i'm done with the hall
I think i'm done with the kitchen table, baby

Let's go outside
In the sunshine
I know you want to, but you can't say yes
Let's go outside
In the moonshine
Take me to the places that i love best

So my angel she says, don't you worry
'Bout the things they're saying, yeah
Got no friends in high places
And the game that you gave away
Wasn't worth playing

Lets Go Outside.....

Cars and Trains

" Hello, You Have Reached The After Life Message Centre
The God You Are Trying To Reach Is Unavailable To Take You Call!!!"
"I said Jesus, Mary, and the Saints above,
Won't you show him love?"

Well I went, I dealt with it but it was hard. I so didn't want to go but to have not gone would have been the cowards way out, and that could have been so easy today, to put me first. Knowing what I know also made it harder. I wish I hadn't been told as it weighed so heavily on my shoulders. I wanted to scream it out loud, to tell him, "listen mate this is how it is.... " But it's not my place to do that, is it?
I was glad to get out of there. I blasted my brains on Patience on the way home, though maybe the Lyrics of "Cars And Trains" where not really apt for my frame of mind. I was glad to be able to switch off, to forget momentarily what I'd seen and what I know. Thank god for my ability to escape, thank god for my escapism.
It really does and has put it all into prospective for me now!

Father Figure

If you are the desert, I'll be the sea,
if you ever hunger, hunger for me,
whatever you ask for, that's what I'll be.
So when you remember the ones who have lied
who said that they cared but then laughed as you cried,
beautiful darling, don't think of me...

Because all I ever wanted
It’s in your eyes
