MOT For The Body

The Range Rover had an MoT* today. It failed. Sodding emissions. Most likely the cat just needs a bit of a clear out, which a blast up the motorway could fix but, of course, there is the worse-case-scenario where new cats are involved. I hate MoTs. Stress + Money x Time = MoT. This got me thinking. It is a … Read More

A Different Kind Of Strength

I love Yoga. There, I said it. I wasn’t expecting to and the whole reason I started to do it was because I was slowly becoming a living statue. In fact, to make sure I didn’t back down from starting, I spent a bunch of cash on some of the paraphernalia to invest myself in it. From the very first, … Read More

Declutter Your Life

Something prompted a bit of a cleaning spree recently (the visit of Vikki’s mum) and, like most cleaning sprees, it concentrated on surfaces. Sparkling sides, polished cupboards, hoovered floors. Lovely. But what about all that crap that lurks behind those cupboards? The wardrobe that is practically bursting with clothes? The chest filled with DVDs… That last one? Guilty. To fit … Read More

List Of The Week #9

List of the week-ish is late this week. We had a visitor in the shape of Vikki’s mum so half the week was spent zooming around the north of England trying to dodge the rain. We were only partially successful! WATCHED The best documentaries were directly linked so I shall include them both here. “Bigger, Stronger, Faster” is a doc … Read More

Relationships Don't Have To Be Bad

I see and read so much about bad relationships. People rarely stick together through richer and poorer, ’til death do us part any more. And it is a real shame. Let’s backtrack and ask the most pertinent of questions: why do people seek a partner? Sex? Romance? Procreation? Yes, some of that to an extent, but the biggest reason should … Read More

My Gap Year

It’s a little later than most, but I have come to the conclusion that 2017 is my long overdue gap year. I didn’t realise it was going to be when January 1st hit and, to be honest, I had no reason to think that this year would be any different to previous years, filled with lots of hard work reaching … Read More

List Of The Week #8

Man, I ache! I started Yoga this week. I’ll go into it in a bit more detail below but, needless to say, it has left me feeling a bit beaten up. However, I know this to be a temporary discomfort as my body gets used to these new positions, exercises and stretches, so I shall persevere. Until that time though, … Read More

Open Minds Wanted

Open Minds Wanted

I spent a large portion of my life being closed-minded. I made my decision about something, someone, and stuck with it. Not only did I stick with it, I may have mocked or ridiculed. We are all, to a larger or lesser degree, closed-minded. Seems to me that we are born that way, probably some kind of protective mechanism dating … Read More

Appetite For Life

“Appetite For Destruction”, the debut album from Guns n’ Roses, is now 30 years old. As someone who was “there” when it was released and witnessed the sweeping change it made across the rock landscape, this makes me feel really fucking old. The album still sounds as fresh today as it did upon release. It hasn’t dated a day. The … Read More

Yoga Lesson One

Yoga Lesson 1

I tried Yoga today for the first time. Being blessed with very short, tight tendons, I am not a flexible nor bendy person. Think C-3PO. As I’m getting older, I am becoming more and more aware of a decrease in what little flexibility I do have along with an increase in aches and pains. Quite a crap combination. For a … Read More
