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! So I haven’t been doing much to be honest, started a few blogs but just can’t seem to get the flow going. Bunged up like a constipated […]

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 of paracetamol. The first one slid down with a swig of water so I repeated the process as you do but the little blighter got lodged in […]

The eyes have it

So I had an eye test the other day. Just popped into Specsavers to ask a question and before I knew it I’m in a dark room squinting at a very fuzzy board with tiny letters on. These old eyeballs have seen better days, even though I’ve worn glasses for years they seem to be […]

HULL Hull fair life money toys

Brandy snap, Coconut’s, Greasy Bob’s and a waltz.

It’s been that time of the year here in Hull. The largest traveling fair in Europe comes to town for a week of chaos. The noise, lights and the aroma of burgers, burnt onions, hot dogs and chips fills the air. For some reason coconut’s are always on every stall. Millions of them. Brown, hairy […]

All I want is a sandwich….

A couple of weeks ago I went to a place I vowed never to go back to….My first experience there was horrific… A nightmare that left me emotional scarred for life…I still can’t eat a chicken sandwich without having a flashback……. Many moons ago we were doing a bit of shopping and my wife said, […]

Two funerals, a few sausage rolls and a pink feather boa.

Two funerals in three weeks. My brother in law first then my sister in law. They were very chalk and cheese and the funerals showed that. For John, it was no service as such because he didn’t believe in God. Pink Floyd played The Great Gig In The Sky and most of The Dark Side […]

Arnold Schwarzenegger, got nothing on me, I could eat The Predator for my tea, Make Chuck Norris cry and Steven Seagal weep, Leave Sly Stallone in an emotional heap, Put Tyson Fury on the floor, Freddy Krueger would be no more, Finally put Michael Myers in his grave, Russell Crowe would be my slave, Bruce […]

How can you have that much love for someone you haven’t seen before? Crazy. Anyway he hasn’t been very well, in […]
