Time Flies

You know you're getting old when you're droppin' the kids off at the pub of a Friday night and you're going home to watch T.V.!

So, 'twas a wake-up call
A kick in the nuts
No 'if's' or 'buts'
A pain, lingering,
Ignoring, as a man does so well
Tomorrow I shall feel no pain 
The 'sell'
And then tomorrow,
Well maybe Tuesday,
Then October becomes February
And no matter how merry
The soberness on wakening still brings
The stings, the doubt,
The bouts of anxiety
And piety not being one of my better sides
No prayers will heal this pain
No smiling hides the fear
And though I cower and assume position foetal
Praytell my darkest hour
Is wakened by the clock
''No more" I say,
And ring the Doc.

All Is Well!

Scans came back (eventually!) all clear!  :¬)

Thank you for your support, I shall wear it always!

Update; Scans done, (embarrassing, but one should never die from embarrassment!) Should have results by Friday. Thanks for the vibes peeps!

I need all your positive thoughts and any spare energy you may have around midday.
Crossed fingers also gratefully received.

Much love.  :¬)

Mark? Never The Twain!

It can be very frustrating when two of the people one loves the most don't gel!
Especially when one of those two seems quite happy in the others company, and the other seems bored out of their head!
And I am in the middle!
Funny, but I imagine they would have so much to talk about at my funeral!

For My Most Favourite Canadian! (That's You Pam!)

Big Girl's Blouse.

Can't believe how emotional a big lad such as I is today! I'm crying at the drop of a hat, and as luck would have it, everyone I know seem to be flinging their hats to the ground today!  :¬)

It's been a bad week, what with Peggy throwing off her mortal coil, me getting H1N1, and Rob fecking off to Oz! I AM DRAINED!

But tomorrow is another day, another start, I might just get back to the gym, even if it's only for a swim!

I am feeling a bit better, all that sleeping and not eating has taken pounds off, what a slimmer rockstar I should look like, you would think?

Happy Monday my friends! 

Much Love.  :¬)

Rob was born to my baby sis Rena when she was just 19. She was a young single lass, and she and Rob came home to a family of Ma, Da, and four brothers. And all the brothers instantly became 'fathers' to Rob. I think this may have set us up for the future parents we would eventually become.

We all just loved him from day one. We would actually fight over who's turn it was to feed/change/bathe him!
He's 25 now, and meself all the brothers still all have a father/son relationship with him. We were all out tonight, celebrating his sister Edel's 21st brthday, a great night. But all the brothers were spending the night with Rob, for he is moving to Australia on Monday with his lovely Emily. And we are going to miss him so much!

Farewell 'our son'. Have a great time in Oz, don't forget your uncles who love you dearly, come back before we are all too old to remember you, but most of all remember all your 'fathers'! :¬)

Best Before 14th Jan 2011

I'm feeling a bit better this evening, well, better than I did this morning! I had to cancel my sitting for my new tattoo with Rob (my favourite nephew). We were both dissappointed, he's leaving for Australia on Monday, and this would have been our last few hours together, having time on our own. He still wants to do the tattoo, even if it's on Sunday, a few hours before his flight, 'cos he created it for me, and he said he would do it before he leaves, and he's a gentleman of his word, just like his Grandad! I will miss him, but the world is such a small place these days, and we will be in contact all the time no doubt!

I am up late tonight, (unusual for him you say!) the only reason being I have a lot of beer that is gonna be 'out of date' by tomorrow, and I just hate waste! (Ah, beer & 'flu remedies!)

Cheers!  :¬)

I'm out of bed, for the first time since Monday.
I may even go outside tomorrow.
