Now, I am a Bean so have lived here all of my nearly 25 years (April 14th - in case you want to send me a card!) so have been around most of the Island.
It's funny how when you walk on the beach alone, no one speaks to you, then, as soon as you have a dog, people stop you to talk, to say hi or to pass a comment on the weather.
Jersey's fab, I am really appreciating it more now as an adult. I think as a child you don't realise how brill it is here.
One thing that I found so annoying when I stood for Deputy was how negative people are about Jersey - OK, so we aren't perfect and to be honest - we never will be!
When are islanders going to see that we need to appreciate the place more and stop moaning about EVERYTHING!..
I really admire a friend of mine who wrote a satirical letter to the JEP the other night about living in large houses - so many people have taken his letter seriously - does anyone get irony anymore?
There is GST, we have it - let's deal with it - stop going on about it!
My suggestion is - GO FOR A BEACH WALK!... get a dog and relax... crikey some folk over here are so highly strung!... If we work together we will have a much better life.
Matthew Robins; I applaud your letter in the JEP - good on you - People: GET IT... Grrrr
If I could afford a big house - I would have one - :0)
Till later - chao x
P.s... Am I too kissy?
