Disappointing But Good

How can something be disappointing and good at the same time? Well technically it can’t, but often we are disappointed with fundamentally good things in our lives. We reject a change in favour of being disappointed rather than admitting how good it was and the cycle continues. Begrudgingly you start to admit how good things …

Be Young, Wild & Free

Regardless of age a young, wild and free attitude has been known to keep you looking young. This might sound counter-intuitive but my grandmother was the perfect example, she didn’t look a day over 65 until my grandfather died, she was 83 and he was 92. It was like an arm had been ripped off, …

Haters Gonna Hate

As they say ‘haters gonna hate’ it is clear that social media has now given everyone their own soapbox to pass their judgement upon others. This is not the first time I have written about this topic and I suspect it wont be the last. I am fortunate enough not to have experienced these interactions …

Relentless In Every Way

Relentless energy thrown into your chosen cause, pulsing through your veins like adrenaline, standing proud waving your banner. The city lies before you a toiling mess of emotions, violence and fire yet all you want is peace. Peaceful protests only work if everyone is peaceful. Treat others as you would like to be treated because …

Its Just Not British

The institution that is the British cup of tea is one which has been the subject of much contention since its introduction. As I have mentioned in previous posts there are people who believe strongly that their preferred method is the one and only. However I woke up this morning to something which doesn’t even …

Come With Me to a Parallel Universe

Parallel universes are something we all seem to want to be true, somewhere there is another version of me in another universe who is doing better, worse or differently. There are plenty of books, films and fantasies which use it as a basis for the plot line, Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter wrote ‘The Long …

Six All Crammed Into One…?

I was quite shocked to discover that Peterborough had 6 McDonald’s Drive-Thrus. To be truthful its not so much that its Peterborough its a commuter town you are likely to get such things but its the 6 McDonald’s in seemingly such close proximity.
