A weekend helping out

Saturday, I went clothes shopping with Jackie. Sunday, I went with Shaun to the tip (twice), collected paving stones and took them to his allotment (twice), and finished the day off sanding down and painting a radiator. I even squeezed in a game of hide-n-seek and washed Myles’ car. From one extreme to the other. […]

A weekend of friends & family

My week in Lustleigh with Kayte and her family consisted of traipsing up mountains, jumping in puddles, and swinging myself up real high on the swing in the local park. This weekend has seen me catch-up with Shaun, and have a surprise visit from my aunt and cousin. There’s been much traipsing around Gunwharf and […]

A weekend ahead of myself

Because of ninja dates changing their days (in line with their wicked ways) the original plan of meeting Kayte in Exeter went out the window, and so onward to Truro it was. It worked out cheaper doing this, as opposed to going home and trying again the next day. Also, it was more convenient since […]

A weekend starting at the end

A thought occurred to me whilst scrubbing the toilet on Friday — backwards! There’s no law saying I must start at the beginning. I could start at the end if I wanted to! So I abandoned the cleaning, cranked up the laptop, and got writing. I surfaced to accompany Laura into town and when Jackie […]

A weekend of cousin lovin’

In another reality, one in which honesty comes naturally, this weekend would’ve seen my cousin Jo get married. Fortunately, since we’re in a reality where love has no conditions, this weekend saw a party thrown in her honour. It was a celebration to celebrate who she is. She is an amazing person. FUCK YOU, MARRIAGE! Was […]

A weekend Victorious

August Bank Holiday sees Portsmouth host Victorious, a little music festival that we’re proud to call our own. Since 2014 Southsea Common, Castle Field, and the surrounding patch has been awash with revelers all mingling for a good time. There’s beer and food, things to do, and of course music. Loud music. I’ve been able […]

A weekend back to normality

After galavanting around Cornwall partaking in good food and good views, coming home can be a downer because you have to fend for yourself and already know the views. I’ve been naughty and had two takeaways… Other than eating crap, I met up with Myles and his dad — first time in nearly 2 weeks. Myles was […]

A weekend with Kayte

When an invite to Cornwall crops up it’s rude not to go! So on Thursday I did. 6hr train trip entertained by a true crime magazine and a couple of movies — 2hrs of which stood by a slam door. I was planning to get a taxi to Kayte’s once in Truro but there wasn’t one […]

A weekend dodging showers

It seemed whenever I stepped outside it rained. Big, fat, soaking rain. So I didn’t. Although, after 2 weeks galavanting on the dales of Yorkshire and the sands of Spain, Myles and Co. came home so I went to visit. Rainy days = movie days = sorted days 😜

A weekend of black tie & champagne

This weekend saw the social event of the season get held at The Port House, Port Solent — Uncle John’s 60th & Retirement party, hob-knobbing with Lords, CEOs and the like — black tie, free bar, live band… I watched Downton Abbey in preparation so like a duck to water, I got it all over […]

A weekend of London pride

Basically, a bunch of gays having a party in the street Not usually one to embrace my gayness when I’ve competition (I prefer to be the only gay in the village = the centre of attention), being a part of the 20,000 strong parade was like a nightmare in my head before I got there. […]

A weekend of 90s rhythm

Starting on Saturday with Jackie’s house move, making me lug around a washing machine and sofa corners, and things like that, like I’m somebody with upper body strength! I did like pushing the truck / trolley / cart thing (in picture) through the streets ’cause it was like driving (I don’t drive). I only crashed into […]

A weekend after a week in Wales

Chilled. I chilled in Wales and I’ve carried on chilling, basically. I’m feeling alright. These tablets slow me down and they’re keeping me in check — I think the physical fact that I’m taking the Propopanol is helping because when I get stressed I think ‘tablet’ and am then active in calming me down. One day […]

A weekend in the sunshine

With the sun beating down glorious, and with the 4 walls of my flat closing in, I’ve been getting out, going for walks, and mainly ending up with Myles. As mum and dad heaved boxes and furniture about (moving home) Myles and I played cars, blew bubbles, read books, and ate ice cream. We also […]

A weekend of birthday cheer

It’s been my birthday!!! Exactly why I’m still excited is a mystery, but I still am; still bouncing off the walls, annoying people. People are rolling their eyes now because my birthday was last week. S’not my fault. This year I got really excited and it’s taking me a little time to get over it. […]

A weekend in London

Spontaneously short notice I went to London to visit my cousins. They say they live in Kent (not London) but they’re within the M25 so that’s London in my eyes. A suburb, if you will, like Copnor. The reason for my visit? Well, there doesn’t need to be one. As it happens, there was. Drinks in Soho […]

A weekend in Scum

Well, Sunday and a bit of Monday. Saturday, I’d breakfast with Jackie in ‘Spoons and the afternoon was spent with Shaun and Myles down at the arcade. Our ‘Spoons is a regular ‘Spoons with drunk people at 9am, and the arcade got shed loads of my 2p’s — okay, a pound but all those 2p’s weigh little […]

A weekend of BBQ’ing & hanging

The weather held off sufficiently on Saturday to allow for the first BBQ of the season — a little chilly after the sun fell but we didn’t notice. When I say ‘the weather held off … to allow’ I mean we would’ve gone ahead anyway, just nice not drowning whilst eating our burgers. The BBQ was […]

A weekend in lieu of Paris

We’d booked this airbnb place with a view of the Eiffel Tower — I’d already got on the case to find out where things were, how to get there etcetera, and then vertigo’s amateur cousin (I’ve got an acronym, similar to Vestibular Neuritis) came up in here and saw the whole trip dead. Luckily Kayte (who I […]

A weekend of birthday drinks & box moving

Last Thursday was my best mate Shaun’s birthday and Saturday night was our night on the town. I can’t say I remember much of our evening or that I functioned much on Sunday — a good night sign! Saturday morning was home-move day for Jackie. I flexed these pecs of mine and hauled around boxes […]

A weekend with friends & anger

Saturday saw me put to work on Shaun’s allotment, digging up onions that had flowered and planting new ones. I didn’t work alone. I had the expert assistance of a little person who gave reason to stop often for snacks, hide and seek, and to look at trains. According to Shaun I’m a bad influence on his son. […]

A weekend of cleaning

In a black knee-length number with white half-apron, lace headpiece, and a feather duster — Yakety Sax blaring — I got a great amount of cardio done but not much cleaning. No matter, I just like looking good in my maids outfit.

A weekend with a chocolate rabbit

Mmm chocolate. I naturally ate the 2 eggs I bought myself a week ago but I kept the bunny Myles got me and mmm chocolate. I like chocolate, and the chocolate other people get you is the best! For a 2 year old Myles has very good chocolate choosing skills.

A weekend with Sloan the slow worm

Meet Sloan, he’s a slow worm. He lives in a vegetable patch under a vegetable patch blanket that keeps him warm, and he likes to do slow worm stuff all day like catching worms and slugs, and avoiding cats. He slithers about because he looks like a snake, but he isn’t a snake — he’s a slow […]

A weekend flying a kite

Until Saturday I’ve never once managed to make a kite fly — I used to run with it and run with it, and no luck — Myles, on the other hand, (after a little help from Daddy) got the kite flying, doing tricks and all sorts, with very little effort. Eventually, once he fancied his lunch, he handed […]

A weekend doing nothing

I did absolutely jack shit besides feeling like crap, writing, and watching movies. I also ate, had a bout of projectile vomit, slept, and had to go to the shop. Jeff came back to the family fold after 4 weeks on the lam — I do wonder what has been achieved. He needs to learn to behave, he’s […]

A weekend with my mate MĂ©niĂšre

Because terra firma isn’t exactly firm at the moment, more like a rolling ocean, most of my weekend was spent indoors and trying not to move too quickly for fear of throwing up. For someone who has a violent spasm every time he remembers something, measured motion isn’t easy to achieve. Besides, like whilst being […]

A weekend with the lads

No girls allowed! Not quite a piss-up in Marbella but our lads weekend was just as crazy. On Saturday we went to a track party, built sandcastles, and jumped in puddles. We ate sausage rolls and dunk ’ems, and a little person got covered in chocolate — got it in his hair, on his sleeves, and in his belly. We saw […]
