bungalows and fun homes – Random conversations on bus journeys

A random conversation on the bus home lead to some interesting thoughts and ideas. Today started with the idea of living in a bungalow. The reason why? so after a good night out, there is no need to attempt the stair climb, just the case of through the door and into the bedroom. No climbing up the stairs as if taking on a mountain. It’s the same when you are feeling shattered after a long day. Some may say, just kip on the couch, but that’s not quite the same as a comfy bed, the risk of falling out of bed compared to rolling off the couch is much smaller.

Then it was the case of if it was a house all the things that I would have. I decided that I would have a tube slide to get down stairs. Much quicker than having to walk down stairs. It would also be fun for the younger visitors to the house. I guess though knowing my luck, my niece and nephew would never want to go home. Of course whilst there is the easy way of getting down, you need an easy way to get up. A stair lift would be a bit extreme although helpful for the older visitor and getting up the stairs if with an injured leg or from a heavy night out, then of course you could have the escalator system but that could be a bit slow and would inevitable find yourself just walking up it anyway.

Then of course the shower system. There is nothing worse than getting out after a nice hot shower especially when its cold. The hot to cold is never much fun. So whats the solution. Well one idea was a warm air blower that you could choose to come on at the end of the shower going off so when you get out and grab your towel, you wont get the horrid cold moment that you would usually experience, it would also help dry the shower out too. Instant dry shower too. Other ideas came up but seemingly impractical for a house leading to great expense no doubt.

It’s amusing sometimes the random conversations that come out from an observation looking out on a bus journey home. Well it wouldn’t be my blog without something random. Till the next time, take care and have fun.

Do it for Nadine – Charity Head Shave – 22 April Snips Barbers

A friend of mine and no doubt a friend of yours, Nadine Lamberton has found herself battling a rare form of cancer called Myeloa. Young Nadine spent has spent the last few weeks in the Royal Free Hospital in London. This tough battle has seen her take another step in the fight in the form of Stem Cell treatment. The stay in hospital has meant not only spending her 30th birthday in hospital, but she has been away from her six month old boy and her husband. Nadine has gone through her treatment which has been far from pleasant, but she has battled through even though it hasnt been easy and has managed to maintain her smile amongst the low times.

With Nadine unable to work and the cost of travelling to and from London, her hubby Brian set up a gofundme campaign and within one single month a massive total of £3,670 has been raised by various friends and family. It goes to show how great people are and coming together to support a friend and family member.

Now though with Nadine having had her hair shaved following the loss through treatment, the fundraising goes on. There is now a Going Bald for Nadine Lamberton campaign. In the few days since starting, the balance is already upto £210 and will no doubt continue to increase. This leads to an event taking place on 22nd April at Snips Barbers. For a donation of £5, you can have your hair shaved off. If you are unable to have all your hair shaved, you can have a grade 1 or 2. You can freely donate any amount if you dont wish to have your hair shaved.
