I don’t keep a Diary, but I’m going to see how long I can keep this blog going with daily posts. The aim is to post a short story each day. Most of them will be about (or including) my late wife. But over the next few days I will talk about my one vice, betting. When I started, the cardschool and the 1st horse race meeting I went to.
But 1st I should say a bit about myself, which isn’t easy. My wife knew more about me than I know myself, although I did know more about her than she thought I knew. I never sported a beard whilst I was married Lynn didn’t like them although I was allowed to keep my moustache. We married twice and were officially married for about 4 or 5 years on each occasion and I was divorced for about 10. I say “I” because she got married to some other blockhead whilst we were parted. But that story will be included on another day.
I cheated a bit with the profile picture. It is about a year or 2 old and is close to the look I was aiming before before lockdown. I had planned to go to the Barbers shortly before lockdown but my (lack of) finances suggested a wait of a week or 2. My hair was irritating me during lockdown but when I realised it was because my hair kept falling in front of my eyes tha I devised a solution. Although, I don’t sport a fringe, I decided to cut one. Although I have cut the fringe again since, I’ve decided that I’m quite happy with the way I look.
Most of the time I am sat in front of the TV or my iPad. However, I like going out for walks but I tend to go on them less than I used to. I have to go to the bank once a month to get £1 coins for my slot machine (aka. Electric Meter) and to the Co-op 2 or 3 times a month for top-up food. The main monthly shop is ordered online and delivered by Iceland, Tesco or occasionally Morrison’s. It is easy to find an excuse not to go out but I have decided that I will go out today and will talk about it tomorrow.
I haven’t really said much about myself but as I said, or implied earlier I don’t really know much about myself. A clearer story may come from my future posts. But 1 thing I have just though of is socialising. I don’t like going out on my own, which is probably one reason why I’m not move forward relationship wise. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy with where I am; my life started when I met Lynn but I would like to make new memories. I don’t like going into places with a lot of people I don’t know, but I’m usually OK on a one-to-one basis. More on that when I talk about Murphy voluntary work.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
