Being surprised and inspired

So here is my next weekly blog. I’m sitting and writing it at Dave’s on the day of London Pride. I think the march has just left Baker St and the sun has just come out after a massive downpour. Though whilst I’ve been writing it’s gone backwards and forwards between sun, cloud, and pouring Read More…

15 good things that happened over the weekend

In a spirit of positivity, these are the good things that have happened over the weekend 21/22 June: Typed up two blogs – this one and one reflecting on the week gone. Publicised on Twitter and Facebook getting over 100 views on Sunday including my first non-spam comment. Went for a jog on Saturday and Read More…

Busy but reflection as well

I haven’t had time to blog daily so this is a review of the last five work days. I had written a mid-week blog but decided it was too work orientated. Work, para mi, must be a means to an end not the end in itself. And so I’ve re-written the blog to look at Read More…

Timewyrm: Revelation

I’m reading the last of the four part new Dr Who adventure series Timewyrm and it’s a really good book. Written by Paul Cornell who is a very good author, it goes beyond the comfort read I am used to. It’s quite surreal with a dead Doctor and Ace having adventures via their ‘souls’ whilst Read More…

Feeling good

It’s Thursday and I’ve just had an excellent gym workout. Sitting in Starbucks writing up my blog. I know they are crap on paying the taxes they should (and I think most companies fit into that category) but I do like free wi-fi, free (ab)use of their electricity supply to charge my chromebook and mobile, Read More…

I so prefer mornings to evenings

So I’m writing my blog in the evening rather than the morning. I have a big love of mornings – I feel excited and optimistic. Evenings I feel knackered. All my best work is done in the morning but today there just wasn’t time to get everything done before work. Yep back to work today Read More…

Making progress

Back writing my blog. I used to spend time during the morning writing up my diary (old school, on paper with pen) but now I have converted that energy into writing my blog which hopefully will be more useful to me and other people being out there in the world. I am very aware my Read More…

I’m back, bet you missed me

And so I have returned to the city I love so much – London. There’s a liberation theology thing that is something like: The church is my mother, my mother is a whore, I still love my mother. That sort of sums up how I feel about my home city. Drives me crazy and lots Read More…

The Last Day

The last day of my latest Sitges holiday – sob. Cracking night last night. Met up with Jamie and we did all the favourites – Parrots, Bar 7, Piano Bar, El Horno/XXL, and ended up at Queenz. Stayed there till it closed at 3am. Nicely drunk and stuck to just red wine and vodka so Read More…
