It’s here, the last day of 2015! Could it come early enough? Could it hold on a few more weeks so things could be accomplished! Nope, it seems it’s just right (like the baby bears porridge) trouble is most of you will be having a drink tonight then setting off yo r fireworks, why not? … More One more try
Sunday drinking, good idea in principle, hugely stupid idea in practice! I went out with the express intention of having a quiet night, but as soon as the bartender says a “double for a extra quid”, you know it’s going to go all wrong! The first hour seemed harmless enough, but as the Jack flowed … More Back from the dead
You know how it is, a dead day after a hectic couple, eating too much, drinking too much, not doing the normal things you would,Erm,, normally do! Crap all on telly, not enough brain activity to do something in need of thought! But you can’t stay in bed, or in the house even. Gotta get … More Sunday after the Boxing Day before the Monday that is dead.
First, let me say a huge thanks to Nikkie, Gareth, Gemma, Danie, Bailey and Loki. Christmas dinner was bloody lovely, alcohol was consumed and games were played. In fact, I almost lost my marbles playing games! Shouting and growling to my team mate Gemma when she was soooooo close to the answer (I can’t do … More Boxing Day dip

Let’s see if j can get this movie on line Haha I think I can! Well the cartoon course in the south made lasting friendships and new contacts with everything helpful.

What was I thinking? ASDA, today, in asghanistan! TODAY! Sweaty smelly shouty kids running amok all over the place, old folks meandering around stopping at every tin of peas, hoodies being as obnoxious as they possibly could and shop assistants fed up to the back teeth with it all (the most busy aisle was obviously … More The fragility of festive frivolity.
Now! Yesterday was a fantastic day and a crap day, a learning day and a teaching day! It wasn’t just any old Sunday, it was the day “Bob” got his first official outing in to the big wild world. The morning was spent in bed, then I really had to get out of me put … More Titanic 2 (it’s cummin up)
That’s it, I’m home. Course done, people met, contacts made and friendships forged! Possibly a turning point in my wandering and ramblings! And as I now know, there’s a bloody H4H centre in Catterick! No one told me and to be honest, I never asked! Oh well not to worry, I know now 🙂 … More Help for Heros
Hollybush? Nope, another house in another part of the country with another charity for loose cannoned mentalists! This time I’m in Tedworth house, Wiltshire with Help 4 Heros. Yes, I’m not fixed yet, still more of a “Work in progress” if you like. The drive down here was horrendous to say the least! Sunday evening, … More Gypsies tramps and thieves
