2211.18 EMERGENCE FROM THE DARK

No I'm not talking about the current political climate, cost of living crisis or the state of the world right now. Emergence from that seems unlikely, at least anytime soon. I've marked a number of milestones this year but one of them isn't something I relish.

2210.04 HAPPY 21ST RAGS

I can't believe this day has come. My youngest daughter turns 21 on this day and she is officially a grown up! For me it's very emotional, I've done my job as a father and She is free to find her own path now.

2209.28 POSTCARD FROM CEI NEWYDD

I've been excited for my holiday for a long time. There was a time where I believed we weren't going to get away what with the energy prices and the cost of living crisis but we've managed it and we are here... in our happy place.

2209.19 GODS SAVE THE KING

It's a sad time for our country. A sad time for the commonwealth and for many across the world. It's also an historic point in time, We have lost our Queen but with that we have a new King.

2209.02 TWENTY YEARS

Milestones are something you come across more and more as you get older. This month I'm hitting two major ones, one of which involves breaking (temporarily) one of my rules of disclosure.

I considered two separate posts but decided to stick to a post with two sections. Both milestones are for 20 years and both sit in different facets of my life.

2208.19 LIFE IS LIKE...

Life at the moment feels like a juggling act, or as I've illustrated it in my drawing - and as anyone will tell you, men are no good at multi-tasking (because of course we like to do a job properly!). This is especially true at work at the moment.

2207.18 BYE BYE BORIS

The Prime Minister has finally quit after years of lies and basically taking the piss out of the British people. But I have to talk about night's out, birthday celebrations, bike racing and of course, the weather!

2206.03 PLATTY JOOBS

It's the Queen's Platinum Jubliee which is a massive deal for the whole of the United Kingdom. The late spring bank holiday has been moved from the last monday in May to 2nd June and combined with an extra holiday on the forth to give most of the country a long weekend off.
