Hows it going?

It has been a while since I posted on here and I need to start writing again to get used to it.

At the moment I am sitting in the Red Cross Blood Bank in Ipswich and I forgot to bring my Kobo to continue reading Game fo Thrones. So I am writing a blog post left handed from my phone, learning to be ambidextrous at the same time.

Today I have reached the highest level in plasma donation, 18%. I try to donate every two weeks but I am finding something seems to get in the way every second appointment. The Blood Bank are screaming for blood and plasma these days so get in there and start donating. It is so simple to donate, more people should consider it. You just never know when you might need some yourself, or worse, someone in you’re family…

Anyway, to the point of the post. Life is going pretty well lately, especially on the home front where it means the most. Finally my beautiful wife has got through my thick skull and has been able to get me talking. This is not natural for me, or most men, but it is necessary for a mentally healthy life, just ask Dr Brian Ironwood from

Talking has not just been good for family life and relationships, it has also been good to get me thinking about where I want to be in regard to everything, work, sport, hobbies, family and most importantly, where I want to be and what I want to be doing with my wife in the future.  After all, Julie is the one I intend living the rest of my life with. I am just starting on that journey of discovery, but I an enjoying travelling it with Julie. I will try to remember to keep you informed as new things happen.

How’s it going for me? Compared to the end of last year, I am on top of the world. Things still shit me at times, but that’s life isn’t it.  Just don’t let them get you down too far by doing something about them, like talking.

I hope you’re all enjoying your life journey as well.

Have fun and keep in touch,
