Thanks for visiting. I’m a northerner with an almost imperceptible beer belly who’s been living in South London since 1984. Born in 1955 I no longer work for a living, as my wife is apt to point out.


Beliefs? Trying to stick by your commitments, being loyal and generous to others, and making the best of your abilities whilst being honest about your faults. I am not a fan of the win-at-all-costs brigade or people who are perpetually angry about something or someone.

I don’t set out to offend but sometimes my clumsy irony and sarcasm can be misinterpreted, and I often fail to spot the obvious. Now and again we all need look at ourselves and have a good laugh.

I post once a week, usually on Thursdays.
