You made it to my page. So, this is me. I’m Jamie. I joined the world of blogging in October 2010. I started well and got up to over 140,000 visits, but then it slowed down when I started planning my wedding.
For 10 years I lived and worked in the Netherlands. I was there as an expat, enjoying the Dutch lifestyle and culture. It’s also where I met my wonderful husband. In 2013 we married in England and in 2015 we moved to England. Life is truly great!
I’m a lover of all things Eurovision (that’s the Eurovision Song Contest to those outside of Europe). I have a kind of love/hate relationship with it. It’s what you get when you mix glitter and politics! To many Europeans the Eurovision is a one-night TV show with songs and acts that make them laugh (or cry). To me the concept spans from November, when countries start picking their first entry, to the evenings shows (yes, there are a few) in May.
I’m a traveller, primary school teacher and the guy who never quite made it to being a television (Blue Peter) presenter. I wish, I wish, I wish. I have dabbled in
stage work theatre…… Well that’s if you count Pantomimes as stage work. So far I’ve been a village idiot and an Indian Dame. I like to vary my character portrayals.
As for blogging…. Why have I started? Well, I want to share the things I see and do. An anthropologist at heart, perhaps? I’m always watching people around me or noting down things that people say and do.
I’ve blogged about so many different topics since I started. Maybe you’d like to hear about:
- The time I caught a mouse in a rather unconventional way. (Not for the faint hearted).
- The time I survived a crazy bus journey in England.
- The time I first discovered ‘Chat Roulette’.
- The time I destroyed my kitchen in a cooking disaster.
- The time I got stuck in a very small, Spanish lift (elevator).
I always said that one day I’d write a book, but why not start here? So here goes….. Happy Reading Bloggers!
