A poem for Stephen

Our good friend Stephen is getting married on Saturday! (Photo above from Glastonbury Festival 2002 – Steve on the left with his best man, Mark.)

We go back a long way
So I wanted to say
On your wedding day,
I’m glad you found Kate
On that Tinder date
When it wasn’t too late,
And in love you fell
So we hear the wedding bell
And I promise not to tell
Of the things that I know
That happened long ago
When on Saturday nights we’d go
To the Dutchman or Half Moon
Maybe sing a karaoke tune
Oh, those days were gone too soon!
They may have been a lot of fun
But those younger days are done
And you have found your special someone
So let’s raise a glass to no more strife
And “Cheers” to a fabulous life,
With the beautiful Kate, by your side, as your wife.

10 ideas to help you get through the day
January 29, 2017
I’m writing this on the dreariest January day ever with rain pouring down and freezing cold hands; it’s barely surprising that we are likely to feel depressed at this time of year. Some are lucky enough to only feel low in spirits every now and then, while others suffer with melancholia so bad they lose hope of never feeling that way again. The best way to deal with those times is usually distraction. By all means, take a little time to yourself if you need it, but then I think the best thing to do is find something else to keep your mind occupied. Here are some ideas…..
Happy New Year! Reflecting and looking ahead
January 3, 2017
Welcome 2017! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas or whichever seasonal celebrations you may have been having. Every other year I host Christmasses for my side of the family and another one for Chris’s side of the family (we wouldn’t all fit in at the same time) and this year it was extra lovely because everyone was able to come. I really wish the Christmas holidays could last another week – I can only just sit down and relax a bit. The run-up to Christmas was mainly spent cleaning, tidying and moving things to the garage to make space for people to stay. I’m writing this knowing that most people are back to work and school etc today and not knowing how on earth I would manage it if I had a normal job! I slept until 11:17 this morning! The only other time I can ever remember being as knackered as this was when we moved!
5 Ideas to do in October
October 15, 2016
1. Kick some leaves. Next time you’re on your way to work, walking the kids to school, or generally going about your day, and you spy a pile of leaves at the side of the pavement; kick it! Go on! Even if there are people about to see; scatter those leaves in the air! (Just make sure there are no small children nearby you might accidentally kick in the face. And make sure the foot not in the air has secure purchase on the ground – not on a wet slippery leaf. See? I struggle with letting go.)…..
