On This Day: 21st July

I can't believe I nearly missed them all! It's 21st July and a date that goes down as one of my most significant. Firstly, it would have been my eldest cat friend's 11th birthday (or at least, the day he came to live with us). He was a bundle of...

First Weeks Review: Achieving the impossible?

  I couldn’t end the week without a review of my new job, yet I’m a little reluctant. As soon as I write this shit down, it starts to change and this is probably the best review of a job I could give, so I don’t want it to!       I...

Same Old Stories

  Well, contrary to what I said in an earlier post; I obviously do still feel the effects of marijuana, but I only notice after I give up.   Withdrawal from a long-term cannabis habit is tricky. Some people can simply decide to stop and act...

Predictable

  Meh. So I say stuff and don’t do it. Story of my life. I gave it a shot and I’ll give it another. This place and the smoking. Old habits die hard, as the saying goes and it’s a saying I know only too well. Addiction is nasty thing and...

Changing Thoughts

  To conclude this night/morning of writing, I say ‘Goodbye’. I’ve got the email addresses of the people here I’ll be keeping in contact with and they have mine*.   In short, one of the unhealthy habits I mentioned in my earlier post on...

Bucket List

  I hit 41 this year and while I don’t want to dwell on what an utterly shit birthday it was (the UK woke up to the news of the Manchester bombings), getting a grip on the forties made me think about a goals or Bucket List. I’ve done them in the...

Weather It Out

  As the sun rises, keep in mind That the skies are compelled to change Time after time The weather will storm To clear with skies a new From lightening and hail to baby blue So wait around, don’t be too quick The grey is not...

The Drugs Don't Work

  This post has taken days to start, because I’m not entirely sure I want to write it. But life is not about what I want, what I desire or crave; it’s about what I need and I need to write it.     Around 14 years ago, I spent over £100 on...

Teenagers: Don't ya just love 'em!

  I love my son dearly, but lately I feel like repeatedly punching him in the face.   He turned 17 a couple of weeks ago and while he’s a good teenager- no drugs, etc- he drives me fucking crazy! He has no common sense or sense of...

I Walked.....

  Most of today has been horrible. This morning, I went in to a job where I knew I wasn’t welcome and for what reason, I don’t declaratively know. And to say it was awkward is an understatement. It was almost physically painful. Every time I moved...

Ch...Ch...Ch...Changes..

  This is not goodbye. Not yet, but everything changes and everything ends, so you can expect it soon.   I come here nearly every day, but I rarely spend more than a few minutes here anymore. I take a gander at my favourite friends latest...

Will you....

....let me post anything, Thoughts? Anything at all? Or will I spend over half an hour of my precious time, battering my keyboard for nothing? Huh? Every half an hour wasted is another 30 minutes closer to death, ya know!

Welcome to England and The Leftist Disease

  I’m not sure if I have any ‘Friends’ on here from the UK; nevertheless, if you’re the type to read the world news, you may have been reading a little more about my country over the past four months. A little island that was known for its...

B*****d Letting Agency (!Profanity & Rant Warning!)

  Landlords and letting agencts can be absolute, fucking, arse-ring sucking cockheads- especially mine.       In November of last year, the ceiling in my sons room developed a massive square-shaped crack that stretched across at least a...
