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 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 […]

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 […]

NORTH POINT.

We have a few shopping centres dotted about here in Hull. These kind of places are all very similar aren’t they, same shops, same bright lights. But we have one here slap bang in the middle of a huge council estate in the north of the city that’s been around for years. It’s called North […]

Family history

I’ve been researching my family tree for a few years now, off and on because basically, I’m hoping somewhere down the line I have royal blood. After all I have ears like Prince Charles. Or if not regal, at the very least a Lord or Lady. I’m still searching but all I’ve found is paupers, […]

Back door blues…

So the dining room door has dropped…. You have to kind of lift the handle to close it with a grinding snap, the whole frame shuddering, a 5.5 on the Richter scale. I tell myself it’s a five, ten minute job, no problem. But nearly an hour later I’m scratching my head with the door […]

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, […]
