Review Of The Year 2012 (part 2)

2012 has been one heck of year for me.
Look into the eyes of cold hearted killing
 machine. (see bottom for more details)

There has been quite a lot going on.

At first I thought not much had happened but as I began to strum on my harp (integral for remembering past events) I realised that this has been a very busy one.

With that said, I would like to share some of the highlights that have aged me by more than one year in the past year.

In no particular order (because I can’t quite remember what happened when) and in a “It’ll be alright on the night” style montage, here are the more memorable bits.

Mrs H fell over and broke her ankle back in June. When I say Broke try to imagine a crate full of light bulbs being fired out of a canon and hitting a brick wall made of giant fists. Her foot exploded into a million pieces and she spent the next 5 months sat on the sofa frowning at me while I typed stupid rubbish for this here blog. Whilst bed ridden I was forced to the spare room where my only company was a draft from the window and an energy saving light bulb that as we all know are as much use a normal light bulb that has been shot from a canon into a brick wall made of giant fists.


She is now back at work and I have the opportunity to mash the keyboard and copy and paste whatever gibberish appears on screen for your viewing pleasure. – you are welcome.

I made the great leap into being a proper grown up by passing my driving test FIRST TIME!!!

This came as a massive surprise to me as did part by driving in the wrong direction! Hahahahahahaha.

When the Queen was celebrating her Diamond Jubilee we here at the camp site had a street party and did something I am quite proud of and have only just realised I haven’t gloated about so far on this blog….

We set a world record!
Spot the celebrity Guest!

That’s right. A genuine Guinness world record!

The record itself is for the most people in different locations wearing paper hats at the same time.
Granted, it’s not the four minute mile or jumping up the highest, like what they did at the Olympics, but a proper world record has been set and that’s good enough for me.

We also had a special guest to oversee proceedings… see if you can see who is was on the picture above!

I have also been interviewed for the Caravan Channel AND the BBC radio this year, as well as having BBC Shropshire pop down to film the snow and campers when we had 2mm of front back in March.
The BBC and some snow. Proper news!

All in all it’s been a very busy year and Quite frankly I’ll be glad once it’s all over.

I probably won’t be writing much over the next couple of weeks as things are set to get very busy over the Xmas/ New year period on site.

I have somehow got to find room for 10 extra people in my house which is on bricks for new year and the campers will be coming in droves to help us celebrate the new year in our newly built barn.

If I don’t see you before then, May I wish you all a very happy winter festival period and a prosperous New year. May the idiots stay quiet and the nutters have a night off.

Stay safe.

Here’s to a very quiet 2013. Good luck to you all in whatever you do and see you on the other side.

These things EAT £1,000's worth of plants each season.
 THEY ARE VERMIN! good boy Wilson!

Normal grumpy service will continue and shockingly vast amounts in 2013.


  1. What's the world record next year?

    1. Hating Dave the mostest. it's going to be a tough one 'cos as you know there are many people that hate Dave. But I think I'm up for it.

  2. Well Mr H you do sound busy over the next couple of weeks that is far more people than I would like to deal with, we have been invited out for Christmas dinner, so I may have to assist washing up but as far as I can tell there are several washers up already. On boxing day we could end up with 14 people for lunch but after that is is chill and peace for a few days.

    I hope Mrs H is getting better it can take a long time to recover from these things, we have much experience of similar events and they are not nice.....

    I know you have often said you look like the queen but I did not realise just closely, I am impressed and will tell everyone at 3.00 on Christmas day when you are giving your speech on the tele . . . . . That's my mate Mr H he's a RAT. . . . I am sure they will be very impressed.......

    If you don't make it back to the blog this side of New Year, End of the World permitting, have a great time and a dam jolly Christmas and New Year to both yourself and Mrs H

    1. Cheers Rob. I'm sure something will annoy me enough between now and then to have a good little rant and vent myself over the internets. Have a good one and all the best to and yours and Miss Fionaski and Henry the heavy cat and the chicken and the dog!

  3. God I bloody hate Dave!
    Glad to hear the Mrs H's ankle is finally on the bend and good boy Wilson indeed. I'm sure that Satan invented those things just to torment me.

    Have a wonderful Christmas Mr and Mrs H and a brilliant new year!
    See you in 2013. :)

  4. Merry Christmas Mr H yet again, Ho Ho Ho hope you are managing to keep the masses entertained.


How did this get here?
