Life is a rusty rollercoaster

HELLO AND THANKS FOR HAVING A PEEK AT MY LITTLE BLOG….TAKE A LOOK AROUND AND THERE’S PLENTY MORE IN THE ARCHIVE IF YOU’RE A GLUTTON FOR PUNISHMENT!

  • Life in the slow lane…
    Man I’ve been feeling rough the last few weeks. A combination of heart failure and long covid has been giving me a kick or two, three and four! […]
  • Killer painkiller.
    What a great start to the year….nearly choked to death….. Had a bit of a headache yesterday (no it wasn’t a hangover!) so decided to take a couple […]
  • The Last Breath.
    The man lay in the semi darkness. Wires attached to his chest and neck spooled upward to various machines that beeped and glowed. The hiss of oxygen was […]
  • Santa with a tattoo.
    We took our little nieces to see Father Christmas yesterday. Both girls under six so the magic of Christmas was overflowing. Excited faces and smiles. It was breakfast […]
  • The Unhappy Elf.
    You see a lot of them, this time of year. Faces that should be shining with glad tidings and joy but look more like a slapped arse. Their […]

  • The wedding (part two)
    That’s 6 hrs 6 mins if you’re in a Ferrari. Took nearly 9 hours but worth every mile. What a beautiful place…. And of course, the happy couple!
  • The wedding. (Part one)
    “No we don’t need to get married… We’re not bothered” Three years ago….. “We just don’t want all the fuss…” Two years ago… We might one day. Who […]
  • Where the heart is.
    It was at that very second, after nearly fourty years of marriage, two grown up boys and years of put downs and insults, the decision was made. There, […]
