Gambling, casinos, spin and win, is big business. No doubt everybody has had a flutter now and again. A little bet on the horses or your favourite sport won’t break the bank. If you have an addictive personality, one bet might lead to misery down the line. The expressions “Just one more time” or “When the fun stops, stop!” won’t help. By that time your bank is empty and your destroyed. In this article, we’ll explore the tricks of the trade to part with your money. Once you’re hooked what they do to keep you there.
Sadly events in life change our lives forever. This is so true but with change comes challenge, along with memories, help to heal a broken heart. This section is dedicated to my family who are with us in spirit.
With lockdown and schools shut for the foreseeable future, along with several jobs and businesses, myself, other students and various workers/business owners find ourselves with a lot of free time. So much free time that I’d say we have no idea what to do with it. So, before we all get bored and begin to go crazy, here are a few things we could do to try and mitigate the boredom and still manage to learn a new skill.
We are all consumers. Whether it’s the food we eat, the clothes we wear or the technology we use. We buy the goods, thus feeding the rich companies. We use our purchases until they break, which is generally outside its warranty. If something comes along that’s better we sell them.
Replacing them 12 months later because it’s faster and better than the previous model. We live in a consumerist world intertwined with a capitalistic society. A business degree is not needed in this case! Technology has advanced so much over the past 20 years does it actually help or are we tied in even further?
Sorry I haven’t had posted much this year. 2019 hasn’t been the easiest year so far. Having had persistent viral infections over a 12 week period at the start of the year. I decided to do a redesign of my blog then part way through my dad lost his battle after suffering a major stroke in 2018. As my new design is now live I will dedicate this post to him.
Wow, Worldoweb turns 10. Many things have happened in the last 10 years. We have seen Apple, Amazon and Google dominate the technology field. The annoyance of subscription models to in-app purchases becoming the firm favourite to drain anyone’s bank account. I hope you enjoy reading part 1 of this series of WOW’s trip down memory lane where we compare worldoweb from 2008 to now in 2018.
I haven’t posted as much as I would have liked this year. Following up from my going anti-social post last year I have had an extremely busy year moving house, twice! After living and outgrowing our family home for 16 years I decided it was the right time to sell and move house. Since January 2015, life has been extremely busy after the sudden loss of my fiance, forced into single motherhood and deciding to go back to my old career in working with children to gain a regular income. With a job, I love and more importantly had the opportunity to meet new wonderful people. I had further dreams to fulfil and obviously doing this without Shaun was emotionally difficult as it was our family home, I was selling!
Back in July after returning from my 3 week trip to Spain and England I took on the task of DIY. I turned anti-social, in a nice way, not in the yob (ASBO) fashion. I focused on the tasks that needed to be done around the home. Thankfully I don’t mind getting my hands dirty! Here is my anti-social experience.
Hey it’s been a while since I have posted. I’m still here but if you are a past visitor you will have noticed that I recently updated my WordPress theme and WOW has had a bit of a major overhaul, bootstrap style. It took me a good few months to complete the design and make it as bug-free as possible but as I now work part-time in a school and being a widowed single mother time is very precious.
On Saturday 7th June, myself, my daughter, and many others will be participating in the Kiltwalk to raise money for Alfie’s Trust, which was set up to fund research into a rare incurable disease called Lymphangiomatosis. The disease causes benign tumours to grow anywhere in the body that cannot be removed or shrunk using chemotherapy.
Here is our story of love, life, and grief. I had plans that my 100th post would be special so I am dedicating it to the life of my fiance Shaun, of 16 years, who was suddenly taken away from me on the 1st January at the age of 35.
