I seem to only make it to the blog every other day at the moment, which is ridiculous because I have the week off work. I'm knocking around the house doing chores, walking into town running errands, and somehow filling each day with forgettable detritus. I'll keep quiet about Grand Theft Auto 5. Yes, I… Continue reading Every Other Day
I finished work at 5:30pm this evening, and cycled home through quiet roads towards home. The majority of the people that would normally be passive aggressively driving their cars home from work were nowhere to be seen - no doubt they are either sitting on beaches in sunnier climes, posting their toxic highlight reels to… Continue reading Two Weeks Off
If all goes according to plan, at the weekend a parcel will arrive in the post with five iPhones in it. Both mine, and my other half's phone contracts have come to an end, and we have been looking around at the various deals available.

Several years ago - before children, when time was a thing to be toyed with and spent frivolously, I would write long, rambling blog posts about life, the universe, and everything inbetween. I would empty my head through the keyboard as easily as turning on a tap - churning out 750 words with relative ease. Granted, I wrote 750 words in order to post to the website "750words", but that's besides the point.
