When the clown becomes the ringmaster, the circus turns ugly

You may well have to forgive the title of this post, however I’m rather pleased with it.

Can’t I have my old country back?

I can’t help but feel an immense feeling of grief over Brexit. It feels like its a never-ending issue, which I suppose it is. I imagine every generation of politics has one big thing that everyone focusses on – miners’ strikes, the Iraq War, the recession, now Brexit. I’m not the only one feeling fatigued […]

Yarm, Teesside/North Yorkshire – slightly cloudy, but sunny; slight breeze to keep things fresh Bossed today. Not only was I up nice and early at 06:44 (specific, I know, but that’s what time I was up) and quickly had my shower & breakfast then spent most of the morning reading the FT Weekend edition.

Friday 26 April 2019

So it’s been a while since I last updated my blog. The main reason being is that I’ve recently been using Day One to write down my own thoughts, which is probably for the best since this is a more public setting and I don’t want all my thoughts out on the world wide web. […]

Stockton-on-Tees, Teesside – strong winds, heavy showers, cold So it’s been a while since I’ve written anything here on my blog. It’s been a rather hectic month since I last blogged anything.

Starbucks, Portrack Lane, Stockton-on-Tees – moderate weather, fairly clear skies Been a funny sort of day. Woke up feeling rough but improved after my first espresso of the day. About 4 cups of coffee later, I’m mid-afternoon in Starbucks what will be number 5 (and the last) coffee of the day accompanied by a cinnamon […]

Stockton-on-Tees, Teesside — cold, a little breeze in the air It turns out that having coeliac disease that goes untreated can lead to not only unmerited tiredness but also brain fog – that explains a lot! For about the past 18 months, I’ve continuously struggled to get my thought processes to function in the way […]
