CAPTAIN'S YULETIDE MESSAGE

So we are still battling the pandemic but at least this year we managed to regain some of our freedoms, but for how long? The Omicron variant is all the rage at the moment and threatens to plunge us back into another lockdown.

2112.19 THE GREAT FESTIVE TV ROUNDUP

Well it's that time of year again where I scour the festive Radio Times (it was almost £6 this year) and highlight my favourite programmes and specials.

2112.16 IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME

It's been a few months since I did a post and there's good reason...

2110.07 HAPPY PLACE

I don't blog enough. I know this, I feel a little overwhelmed at the moment. Work is really been getting me down, the pandemic is still bubbling around as well as all the usual life worries we carry. To eleviate the stress I'd planned a trip with my beloved Morticia to our favourite place.

2108.29 PUPDATES AND EXHAUSTION

I think I underestimated the effect getting a puppy would have on our household. Magnus has turned our lives upside down.

2107.24 FREEDOM DAY

 

On Monday in England our illustrious windbag declared that all covid restrictions were to end. A good idea? Opinions vary.

2106.19 BRAIN STORM

Things are hard for us all, I get that. Just recently though I've been feeling pretty low.

2105.21 DOG

Ever since Angel passed there has been an emptiness in my life. Our home feels empty without her.

2105.05 FIVE-O

I think most people go through their lives thinking that the grand old age of fifty is just out of reach... Until it finally arrives.

Today is the day.

2104.16 NOTHING TO SAY

It's difficult to come up with a blog post in the middle of a pandemic. The only real news is Covid and my life is just bed and work.

2103.17 THREE YEARS AS A TOON

It's been three years since I first did my TBG toon in the format it's in now. So what was my journey to this moment?

2103.07 SHE CANNE TAKE NO MORE CAPT'N

This should have been the blog post I wrote the other week before Angel passed. For some time now, years in fact, our boiler has struggled to perform adequately.

2102.13 GOODBYE MY ANGEL

This is probably the hardest blog post I've ever had to write. It's been almost a week since our beloved cat, Angel passed away.

2101.28 GAME CHANGER

Once again I find that I am plodding through this lockdown with very little in the way of direction. Still things move forward and there have been some changes.

2101.17 LOCKDOWN 3.0

I've been mulling over what to put in a new blog post, the first proper one of 2021. What do I say? So we are in lockdown again, number 3. Life is mundane, bed - work - TV - bed. This is life in lockdown. I work in the public sector, a keyworker ...probably.

2101.01 THE DAY AFTER THE DARKEST YEAR

I'd say most of us will be glad to see the back of 2020. I called it last year as a shit year but obviously didn't forsee the pandemic and the associated blight to all our lives.
