Goodbye, Friend.

"A goodbye is never painful unless you're never going to say hello again" March the 14th, I kissed my friend, thanked her, said goodbye and walked out of intensive care for the last time. Her death has been described as tragic, a terrible accident, a irreplaceable loss and my least favourite, 'just one of those things'. I do know, Writing this post doesn't change anything. The outcome remains the same. I do know, Her story has been ... Read More >>>

I Forgot to Tell You About My Queue Buddy (& How You Always Have a Choice)

You Always Have a Choice

It's 1 pm, the day before Christmas Eve and I'm standing a queue in my local supermarket. To get to the end of it I've had to trail up the freezer aisles, wind round the bread and pitch up beside the chicken being roasted, the smell alone is enough to make me want to throw up, it's a vegetarian thing. 30 trolleys are in front me with their temporary owners caring for their precision load, and they are complaining, huffing, tutting at how ...

He grew up on his parents sheep farm and the best way to herd the sheep, according to Cliff, was to...um..run after them by foot. He gave up sheep (the farming of them that is) in his adult years and became a potato farmer instead. But him ... Read More >>>

It’s Okay to Have a Change of Heart

Sometimes good things fall apart so

If something can change, it was never permanent to start with. You can disagree now with what you defended then. You can make other decisions now, that weren't in the plans then. You can do whatever you like now, even if hadn't crossed your mind and heart back then. Values, beliefs, plans, ideas all made with the very best intentions can change in a heart beat. You may have started down a path back then, convinced you were heading the ... Read More >>>

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.”  ― Edith Lovejoy Pierce Cor blimey.
