Back again,

Recently it was a case of the same old, same old with regard to the scam/junk emails, millions of pounds of awards, unusual activities on bank accounts I don't have, job offers as a  intermediary for various companies in China and Malaysia asking that I start up a bank account to process payments and keep 10% of funds, various military people in Iraq and Afghanistan finding fortunes that they want help in bringing into the country.

Reading through the emails and giggling I came across this email, which, quite frankly, I nearly wet myself laughing as I read it, please see below and enjoy the products of the World Wide Web experience:-

You have been betrayed!!! It’s a pity that this how your life is going 
to come to an end as your death had already been paid for by someone 
who is very close to you from all investigations. 

I have ordered 3 (three) of my men to monitor every move of you and 
make sure you are not out of sight till the date of your 

According to the report I gets, you seem to be innocent about what you 
have been accuse but I have no business with that, so that’s why am 
contacting you to know if truly you are innocent and how much you 
value your life. 

Get back to me if you sure want to live on, ignore this mail only if 
you feel it’s a joke or just a threat. 

Don’t forget your days on earth are numbered, so you have the chance 
to live if only you will comply with me. 

WARNING: Tell no one about this mail to you because he or she might 
just be the person who wants you dead, and if that happens, I will be 
aware and am going to make sure you DIE instantly. 

I will give you every detail of where to be and how to take any 
actions be it legal or illegal, that’s only when I read from you. 

You need to stay calm and act unaware of this situation and follow 
instructions because any move you make that is suspicious; you will 

DIE as your days are numbered. 

Lucky You 

Toodle Pip!

About 2 weeks ago I received an email from Facebook telling me that I had accessed my acount from a different location, when I signed in and looked someone had changed my profile and had posted some comment about quantum physics, so I went through the process of changing my passwork etc.

Two days later I received an email from Amazon telling me that as a result of routine monitoring they had found that my email address and password had been posted on the internet, after checking that no one had ordered anything from my Amazon account, I went through the process of changing passwords etc. This time though I sent up a new email account and edited all my online accounts to show the new information.

I still check on the old email account and have set up a forward to the new one but I look in the Junk mail box. Since my email was published I have been inundated with phishing and scam emails, some of which are very amusing so I thought that I would publish the best ones on this blog. I really find it very strange that anyone could be taken in by them but I suppose it takes allsorts in this world.

Please see below for my favourite scam email so far:-


Our ref: ATM/13470/IDR
Your ref:...Date: 04/07/2011

The Rt Hon David Cameron MP
Prime Minister"

Isn't it very kind of the Prime Minster, David Cameron & the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to think of me, particularly, in these difficult financial times.

Seriously though, if you have received anything like this or anything asking for personal information etc or telling you that you have won vast sums then please be smart, work on the idea that if it sounds too good to be true then it then it is too good to be true and make sure that you delete the emails and what ever you do don't click on any links.

Save emailing

Lazy Afternoon

Husband and two of the children at Football this afternoon, have just sat, read, surfed the net but then had to start thinking about dinner. I have prepared the chilli and the bread dough is proving. The dog has been fed and I have to take him for his walk, its cold and wet outside so not particularly keen at the moment (unfortunately was mugged by a packet of biscuits, so should exercise or else slimming world weigh in could be a gain).

I hope that the weather will be more condusive to exercise tomorrow.

Will have to start preparing for my interview on Monday afternoon, but the books are too good.

Wondering why it is that just when you are feeling comfortable in your life, job etc. it all seems to go tits up.

I work for the NHS my husband works for the MOD. Seems like we are treading water and the sharks are circling.

Back to checking job websites etc.

Great start to the New Year.

Makes you wonder if someone is laughing up their sleeve at us all.

Cous Cous Pizza Base

For a cous cous pizza base you will need first to preheat oven to 180

Cous Cous - (depending on size of base you want) between half a cup to a cup measure dried
add hot water leave to soak.

When the cous cous is ready season with salt, pepper and herbs and add 1 to 2 eggs (depending on the cous cous amount),
mix together and press out into a tin/pie dish lined with baking parchment.

Cook in a preheated oven 180 for between 20 to 25 min

When the base is baked, top with your favourite tomato sauce and toppings put back in the oven
for between 15 and 20 mins.

Husband, Children Urghhhhhh

Husband was not in a good mood today, too hot, too this too that, I have the audacity to actually ask him a question when he was watching the rugby, what a mistake that was, so I retired to the Summerhouse in the garden to avoid being in the same room as him while the rugby was on so I would not be tempted to interact with him in any way.

Rugby over I asked if he could collect the eldest from her friends, lots of tutting and stomping, I said that I would go if he could put the quiches in the oven, but he decided that he would collect her.

Now the fun began, you could not even walk across the girls room so I decided it was time to clear up, sulks, shouting, why should we, its our room, and so on. Threats of taking the lap tops shut them up, also Emily had asked for the Heroes series box set which had arrived so another lever for me to ensure that the room was tidied.

They went up stairs, one black sack of rubbish, lots of shouting and arguing between themselves the girls insisted that the room was done, the room is still not finished to my satisfaction, they have both promised that it will be completed tomorrow (I doubt that this will be done but I live in hope). I have decided that I will record all the spil about tidying rooms and other stuff to save my voice.

The Husband came with me on the walk with Rusty, I said that it was fine, but he insisted and them sighed and complained about the heat. When we got home he said he was glad to be going to work tonight as they have air conditioning (he had been complaining last week that it was too cold, I think that he is going through the male menopause) I hope that he will be in a better mood when he comes home.

I have to go the Job Centre on Monday to get signed off, as I mentioned in a previous post I HAVE A NEW JOB, that should be fun. I still have not received a confirmation letter from the NHS recruitment people, but I have an email from Carol Platt who I will be working with. Will blog about that after Monday.
