Nothing I Care About As Much

I think I have said this before, but I literally am so excited about the thought of visiting my parents just to have a cuppa and a plate of biscuits with them. There is nothing I care about as much. Nothing. Pubs. cinema, snooker, birds, holidays – I don’t care about them – I miss…

Rain’s Back

I had got so used to the nice weather I had deceived myself into thinking the winter was over and the summer was around the corner. Translation of that is I couldn’t be bothered checking the weather forecast before I went out. Walked back from work and ended up soaked. But d’ya know what? I…

Travel Plans

My sister called me yesterday and asked if I wanted to join them on a family holiday at the end of May. I was surprised to be honest. I am not in any rush to make plans to go on holiday yet. I can’t be bothered with the uncertainty and the threat of last minute…
