Life goes on …


It’s been nearly a month since my last post when my short series “From then to Now…” ended, and even longer since I posted a general collection of words. For a lot of people, it's been a very strange time and very worrying time. My youngest son, who is Autistic has been in "lock-down" at … Continue reading Life goes on …

Is it that difficult …


I’m moaning talking about driving. Not Formula 1, Moto-Cross or one of the myriad of other motor sports, I just mean everyday driving. Commuting to work, taking the kids to school or the weekly shopping expedition. I would like one of those cars that do not have to obey the legitimate speed limit. I don’t … Continue reading Is it that difficult …

Bit of a chunter …


There have been a few things that have irritated me this past week or so I’m having a bit of a mild rant today.First up is driving in the rain. It’s not the driving that’s the problem, it’s other drivers. Not all, but many are guilty of the thing I’m moaning about. Picture this …driving … Continue reading Bit of a chunter …

Interesting days …


Yesterday was a day I was a little apprehensive about. I was meeting up with an old school friend for lunch. We have met a couple of times over the past few years, but I seem to have been trying to avoid meeting again. I can’t say why. We both get on together. We have … Continue reading Interesting days …

It finally hit …


I refer to the so named “Beast From The East” weather event. Up to last night, the bad weather was more like a “Wimp From The West” as it had not been as we ha been advised by the TV weather gurus. But from about 22:30 it started to snow a little heavier than before. … Continue reading It finally hit …

It’s been a while …


It’s been a few weeks since my last post. No particular reason except laziness really! I tend to post when I have something I want to get off my chest and usually wait until there are a couple of things that rile me. Well there has been some things that have ‘annoyed’ me somewhat, but … Continue reading It’s been a while …

All going along nicely …


The hospital appointment went well. The doctor has always had a knack of being ‘a little behind’ as the nurse politely put it. So it was no surprise when the appointment was delayed by about 30 minutes. I had blood pressure taken and the (same) nurse observed that the ‘bottom half’ was a little high, … Continue reading All going along nicely …

Back home …..


Well, back home. Yesterday in fact. It was a pretty uneventful day. The weather, whilst not bad, was not as good as it had been. It was going home weather. We stopped off at a gift centre for a look around. My god, these place do depress me at times. Here we are at the … Continue reading Back home …..

All going rather well …..


Well, when I say "All going rather well…" I'm referring to my return to work and I mean the physical side to the return. I working on a phased return over four weeks.  As I say, I mean the physical side is going well. The actual work side is a little different. Although I was … Continue reading All going rather well …..

Struggling for a title …..


The title of this post actually says quite a bit. My postings are just about me and mine. There is nothing of any importance here … no themes ... no political agenda … just general rants. So often when I come to add a post title, I do struggle. Well it's the Bank Holiday, and … Continue reading Struggling for a title …..

It’s been a while


It's been a month or so since my last post, and a few things have happened since then. The video change that I mentioned last time worked, thankfully. Which was more than we hoped for. Both K*** and I had this fear that it might cause a problem for the driver on his way in … Continue reading It’s been a while

Life changer – “T” minus 11


Just to change the mood, only eleven more sleeps until I'm admitted. To be honest, at the moment, I have no worries about this. I say 'at the moment' because I'm not sure what the next ten days will bring. I have another appointment at the hospital on Tuesday (note to self – print the … Continue reading Life changer – “T” minus 11

Less than a week has passed …..


    So it has only been six days since post '500' and quite a bit has happened. One of my colleagues worked out the extra cost, for changing offices to £720.00 per year. In his email to the manager, he stated that this was the extra cost '….for each of us…' which is not quite accurate. … Continue reading Less than a week has passed …..

So what’s new …..


      Well, after a lot of persuasion from Mrs H, I'm getting a new car. Yes my trusty and slightly rusty old Ford Ka is being consigned to the "part-exchangesphere". On Wednesday I will take ownership of a brand spanking new Hyundai i10. To be more accurate, both S**** and I are getting new cars. … Continue reading So what’s new …..
