A journey of weekends, Driving

A weekend with a car

Milestone after milestone! Physical miles. To Brighton, Portchester, Tesco (thrice), Shaun’s — I’ve even had my back seat down and carried a TV stand home. My Brighton journey was a fun journey, I quite liked it — people I’ve told have thought it strange I didn’t stop in Brighton but it was pissing it down, I didn’t […]

A weekend in Newcastle

Having friends and family dotted around the place gives excuses to visit. Like Kayte down in Cornwall = HOLIDAY!!! Like Jo up in London = HOLIDAY!!! Like Laura up in Newcastle = HOLIDAY!!! And so visit I have, and visiting I still am. I don’t get up here as often as maybe I should, although […]

A weekend as a new driver

Felt a lot like walking, if I’m honest.  No car!!! With Shaun on the case, I’m sure this state of affairs won’t last long. I’m lucky he knows what I want because I don’t.  Having looked through insurance, which seems reasonably priced, I find some of the questions they ask are unnecessarily shruggable. I don’t […]

A long weekend egg hunting

Myles is now of the age to enjoy a good egg hunt. He loves them so much that he needs to partake in lots and lots of egg hunts. It’s an unofficial count of 40 on Easter Sunday — it would’ve been an official count but I forgot to count. The hardest part was finding […]

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 loved ones

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 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 […]
