life long covid blog heart failure

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 […]

blog death life paracetamol

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 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 very loud to him, the mask tight and uncomfortable on his cheeks. They moved him into a room after he deteriorated. All he could remember was a […]

blog Christmas Santa Tattoo

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 with Santa which is essentially an overpriced full English with some old bloke sat in a corner, sweating under a large red suit with a huge fake […]

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 cup of Christmas cheer is leaking and definitely down to the dregs. Those morose shop assistants having to wear a ridiculous hat whatever the circumstances…. Had a […]

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 […]

I’ve been a busy bunny lately with a few things so the blogging has taken a bit of a back seat. Just looking at my messages and apparently I have new ‘Followers’. My lord I’m so popular! My blog is reaching the masses! I’m going worldwide! But I’ve got to be honest, some of them […]

Shocking!

Bloody DIY….. The curse strike’s again… “Let’s get an electrician in….” “What! And get charged a hundred quid to change a light fitting?.. No way José!” Maybe I should have rang an electrician… Electrics are not my strong point. Several years ago I fitted a fanlight in the living room and when you flicked the […]

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 […]

What the hell is that about….

Last night I was walking with an old lady with no shoes on. Me not the old lady. We were trying to fix a broken cassette tape, brown, thin tape everywhere. Both of us madly trying to spool it back in. Then into some large building that was flooding quickly as I tried in vain […]

The Wedding (part three)

This drive was relatively easy. Three hours up through the Yorkshire Moors then into Cumbria to a tiny Hamlet called Hutton Roof. The house we were staying in was quite old with an odour of ancient, fusty carpets. It says 1874 above the door and I think that’s the last time it’s been decorated. The […]
