    Everything Must Go

    If anybody wants me, I am finally throwing the last of my old life away. See you on Monday.

    Cricket continues to accept it has a lot to do in tacking racism, and it will further the cause a great deal that ex-cricketers are prepared to open themselves on camera to exposure. The stories that ultimately drive change are those which show our humanity in different light, either good or bad. The common denominator […]

    Watching BBC Sherlock does not make you a BBC Sherlock fan. Actual BBC Sherlock fans have done the following:* Read the ACD stories* Visited London * Solved murder cases as a hobby * Silently pined over their flatmate for years * Faked their own suicide — Fin Amour (@fin__amour) January 4, 2020 If you spend […]

  • Tomorrow Never Knows

    Tomorrow Never Knows

    A twelve week block of therapy begins next Tuesday. This is the only time I’ll talk about this publicly until it’s over. Then, I may not talk at all, but rest assured I’m making lots of notes. This is summat that doesn’t get shared with the room. That, in itself, is no bad thing. Note […]

    One of the reasons why our holiday this year is in Europe was because of me.

This morning, it was all about our first house. […]

    Think

    Maybe it isn’t just me that’s the problem. Perhaps sometimes, other people forget to think. That comment would have just been better not being vocalised. You could have not pressed ‘Send’ but now you have? It’s okay. You said sorry, I’ll move on. Except sometimes it takes a while. It used to be that I held grudges, […]

  • The Disappointed

    The Disappointed

    Getting fit has brought some unexpected benefits to my life: one of them has involved a distinct improvement to the way my digestive system functions. That means it is even more pronounced when the thing stops working, but even that appears to have become less traumatic in the action and recovery. I know full well […]
