In It To Win It

Hello, dear readers!

I’m not a well man.

Now, this may or may not be due to the amount of alcohol I consumed last night. I mean, who can tell, right? It’s possible I’ve got a bad head cold, or a touch of flu. The booze might be an inconvenient coincidence… It might.

It isn’t though, is it? I’m paying the price of overindulgence. Something which, in the past, has led to much self-recrimination, regret, and vows not to repeat my indiscretions.

Not this time, though. No, this time it was absolutely worth it.

A First Time For Everything

Hello, dear readers!

Oh, to be young again.

Not that I’m old. Not really. Not when you consider the near twenty years I would have to wait to get my hands on a bus pass (if it weren’t for my disability, that is). No, age is, as they say, just a number. You’re only as old as you feel, etc, etc, etc.

But, sometimes I feel as old as I am. And that has a tendency to make me slightly (and only slightly) envious of the younger generation.

Let me tell you why.

Hot And Bothered

Hello, dear readers!

A bit warm, innit?

Yup, it seems that some celestial switch has been flipped and Britain has once again transformed from a dreary land of cloud, rain, and less than impressive temperatures to a sub-Saharan paradise of blue skies and blazing sunshine.

And of course, people are complaining.

I try not to be one of those people. We get a paltry amount of sunshine over here as is. I don’t want to chase the rays away. The trouble is, well the trouble is, at the moment, it’s less than ideal.

Extra Time

Hello, dear readers!

Alright, this one might not be to some people’s taste, at least if my lovely wife, Tina, is anything to go by. The subject matter is one that has the power to divide people, even as it brings people together. One that excites passion and exasperation in equal measure, inspires both tears and laughter, and has inspired countless multitudes through the actions and words of exceptional individuals and the trials and triumphs of those who walk alongside them.

No, not religion. I’m talking about football.
