Journal Archive – August 2008

It’s once again time for more posts from my old journals. It was my birthday this month of course, and we had the Beijing Olympics on TV, plus there are the usual mentions of things like DVDs and news stories as well. So I hope you enjoy!

Note: Each time I publish a set of old journal entries, the previous post is backdated to its original year, so my blog remains tidy and chronological. You can see the posts so far on my Journal Archive page. Continue reading “Journal Archive – August 2008”

Journal – March 2008

September 2021 Introduction:

Here’s another month of entries from my old journals. I didn’t do an awful lot this month, although work was keeping me busy. And I did mention some TV, DVDs and news stories as always . Plus there’s a Top 25 list, and I hadn’t included a poll like that for a long time. So it’s a still a fair mixture of stuff. I hope you enjoy!

Journal – January-February 2008

September 2021 Introduction:

And so another year from my old journals gets underway. Well done and thank you if you’re still reading them all! In these first couple of months I had nice trips to socialise with friends in Exeter and bought some more DVDs, while on the downside I was struck down by the norovirus and we had issues with our phoneline. Plus I mentioned various news stories that caught my eye as usual. So I hope you enjoy!

Journal – October-November 2007

August 2021 Introduction:

Welcome to another set of old journal entries. October was fairly quiet, but I did meet a friend in Exeter, which was nice. Then I had a couple of nice trips away during November, visiting my Nan in London for her 100th birthday, and then a friend at Bournemouth University for his much younger birthday!

I took lots of photos while I was in London, a selection of which you’ll see below, along with an unusual photo of me from Bournemouth too. They were taken on my new Nokia 6300 phone, so the quality is rather inferior compared to modern phone cameras. But I hope you like them, and that you enjoy this latest selection of entries overall!

Journal – August-September 2007

August 2021 Introduction:

Here’s another set of entries from my personal journal, again covering a couple of relatively quiet months. I did a nice bit of socialising during August in particular, spending a weekend with a friend in Portsmouth, and then my birthday weekend with friends in Exeter. September meanwhile was relatively uneventful, although there were plenty of news stories I decided to mention. So I hope you find things to enjoy in here as usual.
