Got to a double carpet !!!!

Visible to anyone in the world

33,000 views or as it is known in slang ' a double carpet... in the old days if you had done 30 years in the nick, the guards would buy you a 3 feet square roll of carpet for your cell. Hence 3 is known as a 'carpet' so 33 is a double carpet..

So i have hit a double carpet of bags...

A bag of sand... a grand.. one thousand.

Hence 33,000 is a double carpet of bags.

Stick another neves on and it would by big plymouth of bags...

Anyway i want to say thank you to everyone who has visited my blog.

For 34,000 thousand we can go with some more details about slang counting, perhaps look at jacks, stripes, bottles, scores, ponies and cockles...or even half'a'bar.

For advanced counting slang we could switch for phonetic Cantonese?

Yat = 1

Ee= 2

Sarm= 3

Say=4

Mmm=5

Low=6

Chat=7

Bah=8

Gow= 9

Sap=10

It goes in the 10 unit style... so for example 33 is said as 3 10 3... so 33 is sarm,sap,sarm...

Anyway, thank you for visiting my blog.. it makes me happy to know that you do...

Wow, 29,000 views.

The counter is fairly racing along now.

Thank you to everyone who takes the time to visit and hopefully read this blog.

It has been a funny few days.

The 12th of August would have been my dads birthday, and it is 18 months now since he died.

Son #1 turned 19 on the 15th of August, and got his A-level results on the 16th.

It turned out that when he went onto UCAS to be cleared, the university of Portsmouth had upped his unconditional anyway.

So i have had a week off from work, but am now emotionally exhausted and have to go back to work tomorrow

Blimey, that went to 28,000 quickly.

Thank you everyone.

The counter is speeding up quite quickly now.

There must be some formula somewhere that predicts the growth in views... but i am a social science student.. so no maths for me.

Well not too much in the way of maths, heading into an economics module is September, so there might be maths.

And the counter says. .

Visible to anyone in the world

So it was a few days after the exam, but the counter has made it to 20,000 !!!!

That is mad really, that so many people take the time to read my posts.

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to visit my blog.

I think i might try and be a bit more interactive from now on... instead of just posting closed questions and statements, post more open questions and generate more conversations with comments left on posts?

So lets try this one.  

Will you be doing any extra study activities during the summer? Or will you just enjoy the time off?

I have never read Richard Dwakins ' the bi-cameral mind' and i think it would be rewarding to read it, so that's my summer suggestion. What would be yours?

Hits

Visible to anyone in the world

The views counter is chugging along nicely, about to pass 19,000.

Will it hit 20,000 before my philosophy exam on Tuesday 5th of June?

Do the Open University give extra credit for 20,000 blog visits? In case the exam does not go well?

So place your bets; will the counter hit 20,000 before i sit my exam at 10:00 am on Tuesday 5th of June 2018?????

Well my view counter is about to hit 17,000.

Thank you to everyone who takes the time to visit this blog.

So it grows by around 300 views a week. So by the time this term ends in June 2018, it will have got to 18500. So unless it continues at that pace across the summer then i will start the new term with more than 20,000 views, which i find exciting.

Blog slowing down

Visible to anyone in the world

I have been a bit light with blog posts lately 

I think i have slowed down abit because i have decided it is better to only post when i hsve something relevant to  blog about, rather than just doing it for the sake of it.

Despite my slow down, my hit counter is clocking 14,000 views.

So thanks again to everyone who has visited my blog.
