Whilst hanging out at my friend Jay’s house this weekend, we got to talking about research into the cause of obesity. I know, pretty wild huh? Now during the study a survey was done to find out what people’s favourite doughnut was. And I’d like to repeat the survey here. So all you need to […]

The Sunday Quote: “Why’s it shut? It’s only f**king Easter Egg Sunday?” Some guy outside Sainsbury’s I wish I had something more inspirational to share with you for the Sunday quote. But this guy’s comment really tickled me. Easter Egg Sunday. I also apologise for being later than usual this morning. Let me tell you […]

You mean there’s a 2:13 in the morning? Holy insomniacs Batman! *Sigh* Ollie’s got a stinking cold and it’s at the annoying coughing stage. Ordinarily it wouldn’t be a problem, but due to Clarabella’s folks paying us a visit over Easter, we’re all packed in like sardines. Me, Clarabella and Ollie are in one room. […]

Well, that was weird. And unplanned. And a little icky. You see, yesterday afternoon whilst looking for my old YMCA exercise and fitness qualifications in the loft – I stumbled across some old boxes. Curious as to their contents, I opened one up. It was short sighted and foolish of me because I’d unleashed 26 […]

Something very strange happened yesterday. I came back from one of Louis million dollar dog walks feeling sad. Let me explain… I was walking past Ollie’s old school and they’ve been taming the wild bushes that grow on the perimeter. So I was able to see into the school and there was a gate with […]

Last night was a beautiful English spring evening. And as the sun started to sink down behind the distant hills at the back of my garden, I decided to grab my outdoor hot drink making equipment and get to work. There’s nothing quite like a freshly brewed cup of coffee outdoors is there? As I […]

The Sunday Quote: “To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of LIFE” -From the film: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Saturday night is film night. Sometimes Clarabella and I spend more time trying to […]

The Saturday Quote: “Nature abhors a vacuum. And so do I.” Anne Gibbons Clarabella has gone Spring cleaning crazy. I came home yesterday to find half of the house missing, at least that’s how it felt. I get ridiculously nostalgic and attached to the most useless tat and have difficulty parting with anything… except money […]

What will they say about you?

April 10, 2014

I went to a funeral yesterday. I always get a little lost in thought and reflective at such occasions. Wrestling with the big questions like: What happens when you die? Is there a God?
