Blists Hill

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

I bought a family passport for the Ironbridge Gorge museums not long ago.

We get them half price through my employer in conjunction with the Transforming Telford quango I’ve blogged about before (a VP at my employer is a director of the quango as well).  At £24 for a family passport that lets us into every attraction however many times we want for a year, I put aside my principles and snatched their hands off.

We spent most of the day at Blists Hill yesterday as it’s only 5 minutes down the road.  Blists Hill is a victorian town that’s been built pretty much from scratch.  There was a big blast furnace on the site previously and a handful of associated buildings but over the years the trust that owns the site has bought victorian buildings from the surrounding area, taken them down brick by brick and rebuilt them at Blists Hill.

Here are some pictures we took yesterday:

    from the previous post, i dont really see what the big deal will be? it will surely be an entirely english team? I dont know about the rest but in scotland ‘We’re shite and we know we are!’

    However, our own idiot parliment are trying to get a seperate scottish team, so that migh solve your problems

    I have just got a new pc with Vista from Dell and i am really disappointed, it took me 35 minutes to set up and my eyes did not bleed or my ears catch fire 🙁

    Gone are the days that a new pc was a whole weeks adventure

    And it is quiet, i knew my old one was on because i could hear it the hall but this one……

    The only way you know is because the lights are flashing and the monitor works all the time
