Where have I been and where the hell is this going?

After a long sabbatical from blogging I’ve decided to reappear. Why? I’ve no damn idea but hell let’s have a go at it again.

I could write about my holiday to Greece and how that country has been superbly dealing with a pandemic and how I felt safer in the Ionian sea than I did in the UK but I would lose my shit big time and write something wholely inappropriately about this country.

Then there’s the time I decided to join the BMW club and buy an Xdrive Msport auto beauty of a car but that would be constructed as showing off.

Then I could write about work but I would get shot and then sacked if I discussed the job I do so that’s out of the window.

I could write about how my lad returns to school this week and I will put my mortgage on the fact his school will be closed down within a month because of a positive covid test in weeks but I won’t.

So what the hell do I write about? If I do a dairy my life is too boring to detail the minor things that happen.

If I write about topical subjects i fear my thoughts are too extreme and I may end up in trouble.

I cannot be arsed with telling tales of family days out because I’m too busy enjoying those days out.

I could write about family life but to be fair, the juicy details of tantrums, fights, bonding, growing up, teenage years have all been and gone and I should have written years ago about our experiences with a horrendously bad matched adoption with a child who was on a self destruct path who stormed out at 17.

So for months I’ve toiled with what to write about and I’ve still not got the faintest idea what to build this blog on.

Can you help me with this conundrum?

Cold turkey through writer’s block

Recently I have struggled on a daily basis to think of things to write about online. I cannot use the excuse of not having any spare time to blog as I have had more than enough time on my hands recently. Facing up to writing an original post has been like looking up a mountain. I just couldn’t bring myself to type the words. Continue reading “Cold turkey through writer’s block”

Meeting my dad for the first time since lockdown

Thanks to the slight easing of the lockdown restrictions in the UK I was able to meet another person not from my family as long as it was in a public space. I grabbed the opportunity to visit my 82 year old dad and arranged a walk around his local park for a catch up. Continue reading “Meeting my dad for the first time since lockdown”

The New Normal

We made it to Friday, hoorah and we can look forward to a weekend off work. That opening sentence probably makes it sound like this week has been a long, tough and stressful one but in fact it has been quite the opposite. I was off Monday and Tuesday, worked Wednesday and Thursday with Friday being a work from home day so it has been a very light week for me. Continue reading “The New Normal”
