Adventures in Tattoo’s

Tonight I’m off to meet a new tattoo artist to plan the work on my first new piece in 5 years. I’m going along with a mate who is also having some work done. I’ve chosen to go with King of Hearts in London. We were really impressed when we popped into the shop on…

More than Monday Morning Blues?

I’ve come to accept the Monday morning blues as something that is normal. I am though starting to think that there is something else behind why I find I am affected by them in such an extreme way. OK, so I know I don’t have ovaries, but this is me on a nightly basis. I…

Sunday Blues

Sundays are often an odd experience for me. I struggle with having to iron shirts and prep for the week ahead. Somehow it’s always felt like I’m starting work right then and there. I’ve got a challenging week ahead. I’m travelling to see a client on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Not normally an issue,…

2019 The Season of Change

This, for me, is a season of change. I’ve been wanting to start changing for so long now, but haven’t. I think about change a lot, often how I’m going to change, and how I’ll fuck it up and how its just easier not to bother. I’ve had a couple of days stuck at home….

HAPPY 2019

Happy new year folks! Another year has passed, another year has come. I wish for you that, with every year, you achieve all of your dreams. I will be trying (once again) to come to terms with being me, to improve my mental and physical health and I may even start to consider re-joining the…

No matter how I try…

No matter how I try, I just can’t seem to get into the Christmas mood. I’m a bit of Christmas purist at heart. I don’t like the long drawn out Christmas period it reduces the impact. I would really like Christmas to be small, quiet and dark. The world is too bright these days. I…

Almost a week post surgery

It’s almost a week since I had surgery to remove the granuloma, and to remove a tooth. It was brutal, and at one point I had to be held down for the surgeon to get enough leverage to do part of the operation. I’m doing everything I can to forget that experience. The surgery went…

Q: Are you going to a Halloween Party?

Q: Are you going to a Halloween Party? A: No, I’ve just had surgery So today is the day I get the granuloma removed. I’m having a day patient 1-2hr op, which won’t be fun. Living in a London Transport travel zone, I usually get a bus home. It’s effectively free because I have a…

‘D’ day – part two. It’s not cancer, so why do I feel down?

It’s not cancer! The tumour (yes, it is a tumour) is benign and therefore not considered as a Cancer. It still needs removing and retesting, which is run of the mill. But, it’s not cancer, I should feel relieved. So why don’t I feel amazing I hadn’t figured on this outcome, I’d not prepared myself….

‘D’ Day

‘D‘ is for diagnosis. Today I will finally have confirmation that either I do, or don’t have Cancer. Up until 11:30 today I’ve been feeling OK. Now I’m starting to feel quite nervous. What makes today worse is that I have a 1hr bus journey to get to the Hospital, and another 1hr to get…
