One of the problems I live with.

I have to get this off my chest, this is something that happened a couple of weeks ago and I wasn’t going to post anything about it but a thread on twitter brought it back to my mind and I felt I should put it on here so that I can get it off of…

Let’s get back to basics.

Hello everyone, Hope you are having a good Sunday. I am looking for some inspiration. I really want to get back to writing again but I have not got any idea of what I could write about, I have got nothing going on in-between the old ears (no need to make a joke of that…

I really should listen to myself.

Why can’t I take my own advice? I mean seriously I am such a bloody idiot. The post I made a few days ago, inspired by an excellent yet weird drawing by Kira Scribbles, was all about not dwelling on the past, not looking back at what we can’t have, of what we have lost….

I’ll be brief

Things have been a bit rough recently. I’ve been dealing with some issues in my life and I haven’t really had a lot of time or motivation to write anything. So, here’s what has been happening. I’ll keep this brief. I’ve been trying to pass my theory test so that I can progress with my…

Hi

Hey, it’s been a while since I’ve put anything on here. I have been dealing with a fair few issues recently, professionally, personally and health-related so I haven’t had the energy or the motivation to post anything here on WordPress. I will try and pull my thoughts together into some sort of coherent rambling in…

Hey, It’s been a while

Hey everyone, it’s been a while since I posted anything on here. to be honest I have been thinking about giving up the blog. I haven’t had much time to put anything on here or had anything to say really. So, I don’t know if I will continue with this or not, I’m pretty sure…

I AM NOT A FUCKING MILLENNIAL!

Evening folks, As promised earlier its time for a rant. This afternoon I was scrolling through twitter and I came across a link to this article.   Here is the Full article I read it and through “oh for fuck sake this is just ridiculous” then I kept scrolling through the thread and I came…

Adulting Is Hard

Well, today was an odd day. I spent the day with the little one as she wasn’t at the childminders today so got up and made her and myself French Toast for breakfast and it was good. Then after playing for an hour or so she fell asleep face down on the carpet. “YAY,” I…

New Challenge

I am going to try a new thing tonight I am going to start writing for ten minutes straight with no clue what I am about to say just whatever my fingers decide to say.   And the ten minutes start NOW: Apparently today has been national unicorn day?? Who knew that was a thing…

Closing the Door [poem]

When you close the door on the past, You move forward to the future, You never know how long the peace will last, Closing the door is hard, Letting go of what you thought was your true path, Part of that path will always linger, Wondering what could have been, But the future isn’t set,…

It’s official, I am Unemployable

Hey folks, it has been nearly two weeks since I have posted anything, so I wanted to do a quick update. Its been a rough week or so, I have had to face a few home truths and realisations on things. The first being that I had an interview for a job that I didn’t…

Today has been rough.

The last 24 hours have been somewhat challenging. It started off yesterday with it trying to snow, there have been weather warnings for the past few days saying that there is a cold front coming in from Russia that is going to be causing problems in the near future. So, this was it at about…

End of my rope, I don’t know what to do anymore.

I feel like I am at the end of my rope. I have been out of work now for ten months and its starting to get to me. Not so much the not working part but it’s the constant rejections that I keep getting. I can’t count the number of emails I have received over…

Mystery Blogger Award…

Back on the 12th of January, I was nominated for this award by the fantastically talented and wonderful person that is Cyranny. My teeny tiny Canadian friend. It may have taken me a while to actually get round to this (22nd of February) whoops, sorry about that my friend so here is my eternal thanks…

What is Love?

Love is caring, Love is talking, Love is loss, Love is kind, Love is unyielding, Love is constant, Love is a promise, Love never leaves you, Love touches your soul, But most of all, Love makes life worth living, And Love is pain, Love lets you know that you are alive.

Update on life

A few weeks ago, I posted on here that not only have I been out of work since May, and my wife got made redundant at the beginning of January, the company she worked for went into administration. Leaving us up shit creek without a paddle. I had to make a compromise with a promise…

Years from now….

[I wrote this story back in November and I read it again last night at The Writing Group that I joined last year and I thought that I would tweak it and repost it for valentines day. Enjoy.] One day, far in the future, living life the only way we will know how. Alone. Both…

Don’t you f*cking dare… [Angry Rant]

WARNING ANGRY RANT TIME. I am currently filled with boiling rage, I was talking to some friends not long ago, and I mentioned that I didn’t get to bed last night until 3.50am because the little one was up half the night. She had been down for a while and woke up wanting a bottle,…

This is me

Last night I went to the cinema with the wife to see The Greatest Showman. If you haven’t seen it or heard of it, it is the story of how P.T. Barnum set up the circus. Now based on what I have gleaned about the man himself before seeing the film it is, I have…

Finding new music

Last night I was having a chat with some friends of mine on Discord. We had a voice chat open as one of my friends and his wife were doing an online gig. Now these two are incredibly talented and I hope to high hell that they make it big one day. You should all…

One small step….

So last night I said that I was going to try and post more on here than I have been. Now while as per usual I haven’t had time to write anything I do have something to report. Tragically the little one is still sick with an ear infection and is fighting us every time…

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes!

Hey folks, how have you all been? I am back from a sort of unintended break, I posted what my year has been like so far in 2018 and its been pretty shity year so far. But in an update to that, I can report that I have two interviews next week, and those are…

2018, An update on the year so far.

Well here we are, two weeks into 2018 and it already has been a very challenging year. It started off same as any other year except that I was sick as a dog, had the sickness and diarrhoea bug that was going about so I felt awful. To top that off the little one was…

Someone To Lava

I have been busy with life, I got a job and have been working and taking care of the little monster (it’s nearly her first birthday *gulp*) so things have been hectic, and I haven’t had a lot of time to post anything on here. Over the last few nights the little one has had…

Years from now…

One day, far in the future, living life the only way we will know how. Alone. Both of us will be making our way through the world waiting to see what life will throw at us next. You, in your world. Me, in mine. I’ll be making my way across the courtyard of the shopping…

Mirror Reflection

Someone is looking back at me in the mirror, that person isn’t me. They are a being unto themselves. She looks like me, but She isn’t quite me. She has been following me in the mirror for five years now, ever since I lost my way in life, things changed then, I changed the direction…

Inspirational Bloggers Award

I have decided to create this Inspirational Bloggers Award to celebrate and promote some of the bloggers that I follow and love their blogs. They are people who continually surprise me with their innovation, creativity, sense of humour and insane talent. These are people that I feel need to be celebrated, so I want to…

Where am I going? 

I don’t know where I’m going, I don’t know where I’ve been, There is a freedom in not knowing, But it’s murky with the past unseen, I could be heading for trouble, I could he heading for glory, Will I emerge from beneath the rubble? Well, that’s another story.

Fifteen years, has it really been that long?

Today is the 6th of October, today is a day to remember for me. Today is my Grandad’s birthday.     He was a great man who had a considerable influence on my life he died fifteen years ago on the 31st of July 2002 if he were still alive he would have been 98…

Always stuck in second gear

So no one told you life was going to be this way. Your jobs a joke, your broke, your love life’s DOA, It’s like your always stuck in second gear, When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month or even your year. Everyone knows these words. I was watching an episode of friends…

We are our stories

Everyone has a story to tell, Some are epic some are simple, We all want our story to be known, Even if it’s just to those we love, Most keep them to themselves, Others shout it from the rooftops, No matter how you handle your story, It’s personal to you, Some won’t care, Some will…

Things not to do

Number 1: When someone is having a bad day or a rant do not, I repeat, DO NOT, tell that person to “chill” all you are going to do by saying this is make them even angrier. Number 2: When someone is talking to you and saying about something that they are struggling with do…

Tales from the Call Centre (Commenters Edition)

A while ago I put out a request for stories from anyone who has worked in customer service and Cyranny was kind enough to send me about ten common traits so here they are for your enjoyment. Colin started this a little while back, and I was looking for my best call centre stories… Having…

Crushing Your Dreams 

Running for our lives, We make our way around the track, Just as we hit our stride, We take the time to glance back, The finish line is in sight, There is nothing in our way, It’s a Peculiar feeling, We are about to win, When the fucking blue shell, Blows our chances to hell.

The Wizerding World, and my place in it

Over the last few days, I have been trying to find things to keep me occupied when the little one is away at the childminders. (being unemployed sucks) So one of the things I found yesterday was the website Pottermore, which is the site run by JK Rowling and is all about the Wizarding world…

This is a personal post

Before you read this post, I want to say that this isn’t my usual fun post, it’s not a story, poem or anything irreverent. It is an intensely personal post about something that I have to get off my chest, its something that has been bothering me for a while and today it has come…

Things not to say…

About a year ago I had a made a few posts on here called “Things not to say to your pregnant wife.” it was a short lived thing of the stupid things that I said to my wife when she was pregnant. this was before I learned to keep my mouth shut and not say…

Music that describes your life

Hello everybody, Ok so there is a website/app that I use on a daily basis (other than WordPress of course), and tonight I was a little bit bored, so I posted this Now through all of the usual crap that you would expect to crop up, there was one gem of a question that really…

I’m Here

I see you, I know you’re there, Always watching, Always waiting, You don’t need to be shy, I always want to hear from you, Don’t be shy, You know I’m always here.

Why we write

I write to keep myself sane, Sanity is fleeting, If you don’t fight for it, you’ll feel the pain, So I write to keep myself going, Knowing that it’s a ferocious battle, It doesn’t take much for the madness to start to rattle, It started for different reasons, But I continue to keep myself sane,…

Carousel Keeps Spinning

Everything is changing, The world keeps on spinning, The doubts of yesterday are fading, The world of tomorrow is only beginning, We keep moving forward, On this spinning ball, It’s not always smooth sailing, Sometimes we hit the wall, The world is spinning, Others spin with us, Turning in parallel, Until it’s time for them…

First Love

When you look back on your first love, what do you think? Sometimes the memories hurt, sometimes they are good, it all depends on how it ended. Sometimes you misremember things making them seem worse or better which ever it is the other half may end up being foggy in your memory. This is something…

Friends.

Last night I was talking to a friend of mine, and it got me thinking. I don’t have many friends, I have no one that I can call up on a random day I’m not busy and see if they want to go out for lunch or for a drink, coffee, tea or things like…

Letting Go, Facing the Void

It’s been going on for way too long, I’ve been tormenting myself, Thinking about what could have been, Even long after you were gone, I need to stop, I need to move on, I can’t take this anymore, All I’m doing is hurting myself. You don’t know the pain that you caused, It’s not your…

I’m Not Running Anymore

The wind howled through the trees, making the branches creak and groan, the moon is fighting to shine through the clouds, but it’s a losing battle, There is no light to shine my path, Running from the past, Moving towards the future, But I can’t outrun my past, It follows no matter where the path…

Life never works how you think

Life never works out the way you planned it. When I was younger, I was completely useless with most things I never really figured out where I fit in in life. I was always the outsider, I never belonged to any particular group I floated around, I would talk to everyone, but for the most…

Six months have gone by so fast

Today has been a big day, I know I’ve said that a lot recently but it doesn’t make it any less right. As of today 17-06-2017, my little baby girl Jessica is now a full Six Months old. Where has the time gone? It feels like only yesterday that the wife shouted me through to…

200th post

Well, then that was quick. Just four months ago I posted my 100th post, and here we are now on post 200, my god I must talk a load of crap. I honestly never thought I would get this far and I am truly humbled by the response that I have gotten from everyone on…

Time for a Revamp. And another milestone for someone

It’s been a semi-busy day, I have two days left at work (well one and a halfish now) and I have been hard at it as you can expect. I have taken the opportunity today to completely revamp the look of my blog. I was getting bored with the same old look and have decided…

Twisting and Turning

Life is one giant maze, We start at the beginning and head to the centre, Living life through the haze, Twisting passed the obstacles that are set in our path, It’s a Labyrinth and when you think you have the hang of it, It changes the way you think and sometimes it will make you…

We both knew it wouldn’t last (A One Hundred Word Story)

We both knew it was temporary, the relationship couldn’t last. Those nights you would come to my door begging to come in, I let you, of course, how could I not? I gave you a place to stay, and we would curl up on the couch together feeling each other’s warmth. You kept me company,…

Weird place

I was looking at my stats this morning, and it’s been a slow day so far the only views I have had are from Austraila, so on the map, it is showing a close up of the country, and I was reminded of something I first saw a few years ago   Austraila is a…

Slight Rant: Piracy

Yesterday I took the wife to the cinema to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 while my mum watched the little one, who spent most of the day screaming poor thing. Now the film was great I loved it, and if you get the chance to go and see it you should, Baby Groot…

Knackered

I have said it before, and I will say it again I am absolutely bloody knackered. For the last, I think, six weeks, it could be more it could be less I can’t remember anymore. I have been working six days a week ten hours each day and I am shattered, it is hard work…

Blankets,

My daughter is now four months old and it has been a long four months, honestly, it feels like it has been so much longer than that. Her favourite thing that she has, apart from me that is, is her blanket, it is just a normal blanket except it has a bears head on the…

Grey (Poem)

Life is easier when you are young, You never know what way you are going to go, it is so simple that you think you know what is to come, If only we could keep the innocence of youth, But Oh No, We learn that the world is more than Black and White. It is…

I’m just done

I am thinking about giving up. Recently I have had no motivation to write, I have had no time to do it, and everything I have tried to write has been garbage. It is feeling forced and like I’m not enjoying it anymore. Writing used to be an escape for me, a way to deal…

A Writing Challenge

Good afternoon my happy people, I hope you are all doing well. I have come up with a Challenge for all the writers out there. I want to see how many people would be up to the challenge. So I came up with this today when I was sitting googling random facts. I started off…

My Talent is gone Daily Post: Unravel

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking over the last few days. For some reason, I seem to have lost whatever minuscule talent I ever had for writing. I’ve been trying to write something, anything for a few weeks and everything that is coming out is utter trash. I have to try and add about…

Outlier….. Daily Prompt

Todays daily prompt reminded me of a story idea I came up with years ago but never followed through with, I think I might have to look at it now this is the basic idea I’m an Outlier in the worst possible place to be one, I’m an Outlier in Hell. Not sure if I…

Beta Readers wanted.

I am looking for three or four Beta Readers to help me with my novel. Ideal I would be looking for someone with experience in writing and editing to read over my manuscript and check for any errors and plot holes. If you are interested contact me and let me know if this is something…

Geekifacation is succeeding 

If you have read my previous posts about wanting to turn my baby girl into a geek then I have an update for you.  Recently she’s has been screaming a lot and nothing seems to settle her.  Last night we tried music and it seemed to work she settled down and sat in my arms…

Creeping Darkness

Today hasn’t been a good day. I feel like I just want to scream. I got up and went to work, but all day I have had absolutely no motivation or energy. My brain has been going to the bad places, and I’ve been feeling really down. Haven’t wanted to eat or drink, only did…
