So it's 24 hrs since I got fired from my job. A job which gave me everything I needed to provide for my family. You could say I feel pretty stupid right now. 7 months ago I made a mistake in a job and didn't follow procedures that were put... Continue reading

Hey all, I'm about to let loose on a few things so don't get your knickers/undies in a twist. If you think it's about you; whether intentionally or not on my part, then it obviously applies to you. This post is not aimed at anyone in particularly, but at an... Continue reading

I have recently been wrestling with my thoughts over why I do certain things that I do. I seem to mess things up when they are going well, and I step back just when I need to step up. I invent things to do, when I know clearly in my... Continue reading

I have had many friends over the years. They come and go with the changing of the seasons. Some of those I have not seen for years, but nothing has changed, I believe we are still friends. Some of them left once they got what they needed and have never... Continue reading

Mine and Torz's personal lives are pretty much out there for everyone to see or read. This doesn't come from a place of narcissism​ or ego, but rather a compulsion to give and share lifes ups and downs in order to maybe have, if only a minute amount, of positive... Continue reading

An open letter to my children. There is no one on this planet that loves you more than your mum and I. Everything we do is in some way trying make things better or easier for you. The things we do in our lives revolve around how they may affect... Continue reading

I'm a huge fan of the rock band Pearl Jam. The best band in the world in my opinion. They've been making good music consistently for the last 27 years. I first remember hearing/seeing them on MTV with 'Even flow' back in 1991, watching Eddie Vedder climbing up the venue... Continue reading

As it's Friday I thought I might as well try and brighten the day up with a little story about something that happened to me one night a few years ago. It was late at night, the whole house was in darkness. We were all fast asleep. Then a scratching... Continue reading

Until recently, as in the last few years, I've really tried to work on a real failing I had or maybe still have. I remember when I used to sneak to the pub to have a few beers, or I'd be sneaking cans of beer and drinking them in the... Continue reading

I have what I think is sciatica at the moment and it's been going on for some weeks now. I find myself moaning and groaning at times because of the discomfort it gives me. Yes I'm getting older and these things could become more a part of my life and... Continue reading

Do you get out of your comfort zone often enough? When was the last time you did something that made you feel that buzz, the excitement and nervousness all in one moment? I don't mean stealing cars or taking illegal substances, but doing something that maybe you thought you could... Continue reading

There are times in our lives where the decision we face is one that can change our entire life and shape our whole future. There was a day like that for me and the way its changed my life for the better is something I can truly say is the... Continue reading

I am the third of four brothers. My parents and my brothers all belong to a religion called Jehovah's Witnesses. I too was raised in that faith from an early age. We didn't celebrate Christmas or birthdays. We weren't encouraged to have friendships outside of the JW's. I don't remember... Continue reading

Even though me and Torz have had the craziest and toughest of times, we have also experienced things along the way that have helped cement our relationship and create amazing memories. One of those memories came about during the early hours of Monday morning, April 7th 2008. Unbeknown to me,... Continue reading

As I look back over the years, it's actually quite surprising that Torz had never thrown me out before. I'm sure she probably wanted to and thought about it many times. 99% of all our arguments would be because of my drinking. Either I'd be sulking because I couldn't go... Continue reading

To quote Mr Zig Ziglar: 'Money can buy you a real nice bed, but it can't buy you a good night's sleep'. I remember the nights when I couldn't sleep. Mainly because every time I thought about the money I'd wasted, or the lies I'd told my wife I would... Continue reading

The choices we make create the life we lead. Choices are an inherent part of life. The decision we make when given a choice will lead us down the path we have chosen. In almost every part of our modern society there is choice. Too much choice sometimes. In most... Continue reading

Do you ever feel like you are stuck in a rut and you know that you are not doing anything about it. Day after day after, week after week. The comfort and warmth of the bed in the morning. The 'relaxing' glass of wine turning into a bottle. The pint... Continue reading
