It is a sign of the inequality within the so-called UK that the only country who voted for the Tories was England, yet the rest of us have to put up with them in government. Even in Northern Ireland there is a swing to a united Ireland vote (hardly Tory policy). So, whilst Labour lost … Continue reading Lose-Lose

Six Pounds More(!)

I can't believe it, I've lost another 6 lbs this week. That makes 13 lbs all told, in a fortnight. Nigh on 1 stone already (!) My gob has never been so smacked . . . 😀 This Slimming World lark really works. There were three of us men there to begin with this morning, … Continue reading Six Pounds More(!)

Steve Harvey – God’s Grace.

https://youtu.be/jUCjH-nn0v4 Grace equals God's unmerited favour. Not being 'rewarded' with what I deserve from the actions in my life. Not being punished for my sins, but Christ taking it for me on the cross of Calvary.

It’s life Jim . . .

Ah, another dreich, grey Wednesday. I haven't been into work yet, this week. My ankle is improving, but not fast enough. I do not trust it, yet, for walking any kind of distance. Still, I'm sticking to the weight-loss programme, and eating more healthily. It's just that I'm not walking all that much. It's not … Continue reading It’s life Jim . . .

Seven Pounds.

I'm the type of person who finds it easier to post when something is wrong, or has gone wrong, or when I feel down. Hence the lack of stuff over the past several days. Life is kinda looking up, you see. My wife has given me some home truths, and things came to a head … Continue reading Seven Pounds.

What Is A Man?

I don't post as much as I'd like to. Sometimes I can't think of something to say, sometimes I'm not in the mood. Sometimes it is something else. I'd like to post every day, but I haven't been doing that much over the past few weeks. What kind of a man does that make me? … Continue reading What Is A Man?

54 next month

I'll be 54 next month, and I'm still scared of what people think of me. I still don't do things (or do things) based on what I assume others want, or will think of me. What will Kim (my wife) think? What will my parents think? What will my brother think? What will my colleagues … Continue reading 54 next month

Happy & Loved

I posted the below in answer to a post on someone else's blog. I thought I'd post it here, too. The number of times I convince myself that I am not happy, and that I am a failure. I suffer from stress & depression, believing the worst thoughts, and giving into temptation. Brief, short-term relief. … Continue reading Happy & Loved
