Im back again

Been a long time since i posted and alots changed,some good and some bad but im still here and have a new girlfriend Kuia who i have been with a month now and love the chick madly,shes simply a wonderful lady,albeit slightly mad for going out with me and shes also from the other side.....Kent.
This all means i am obviously not living with my ex anymore...no shit sherlock and sadly not living with my beautiful daughter anymore,which can be very hard at times but i'm gradually getting used to it more every day and if anything its actually made our relationship stronger and we spend more quality time together and she has grown into a beautiful,intelligent and strong little young lady.
My love for football has somewhat diminished again,well not diminished but been put on the back burners for the last year,mainly due to work and also due to me spending more time with isla,although she does enjoy coming footy with me,its more so so she can overload on sweets,fizz and burgers and generally run me ragged chasing her around the place,which ulitmately leads to me not watching as much footy as i would like.
Arsenal look to be on the up,having won the Fa Cup last season and back in the final this season and although their league form is still below par,a late run of decent form has at least seen us put pressure on leaders Chelsea who we play Sunday,although even a win would probably still leave us too much to do,barring a Chelsea collapse but you never know,at least there are signs though of competing at the top level may be a reality next season with 2-3 top signings in the summer,as for our performance in europe,apart from one pathetic game against Monaco at the emirates i believe we would now be in the semi finals ffs.
Hornchurch lost the play off final to Lowestoft last May and this season it got worse and worse and didnt get any better,despite every now and then a result giving us hope of getting out the mire,we were sadly relegated down to the Ryman one North,not the end of the world as some fans would have you believe and i for one,think it may just be what the club needs to get going again,at least we get the biggest derby in world football next year AFC Hornchurch v Romford FC the enemy!!!
As for my birding which was the main reason for starting this blog,the last year it has suffered somewhat but im starting to get back into it a bit,but hard making time with work.
Last weekend i went with Kuia and her daughter Sian down to her parents in Devon,a lovely place just outside Barnstaple,a lovely town and a lovely area,one i spent many happy holidays with my family growing up,its one of those places that reminds you how great this country is and it also reminds me why i dont care too much for foreign holidays as i would rather visit as much of my homeland and spend my hard earned cash in this country giving a bit back to our economy,plus i'm scared of flying lol
We visited RHS Rosemoor near Torrington,a beautiful area full of big hills,trees,fast flowing rivers,a place that time forgot,magnificent scenery to match anywhere on earth in my opinion,we also had a walk locally where i got a picture of a buzzard in a tree close by and generally just relaxed with good drink and food.
Yesterday i visited Pagham RSPB and had a nice walk around there and saw many of the signs of spring well underway,here are some pictures of the last few days
