LET ME BE FRANK

Just under 2 years ago I rescued a young puppy that had been abandoned. I had been open to the idea of having another dog after Rodderz died but hadn’t really actively looked for one until I saw a particular Facebook appeal from the local dog shelter that tugged like hell on my heart strings. If I was to get…

THERE IS NO REASON NOT TO FOLLOW YOUR HEART

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: ‘If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.’ It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day…

MISSING THE MOTHERLAND

I’ve lived in Spain now for 13 years and I’m starting to think that it’s time for me to return the Motherland. When I moved to Spain my mother was here, she’s now deceased, and my kids were young and visiting every 6 weeks, they’re now living their own adult lives. A once busy house is now very quiet in…

Heading back to New York with Norwegian

I’m absolutely delighted that I have booked flights to return to New York for a couple of weeks in May. It would be unrealistic to return later this year due to work commitments and although I could have headed out there again in March, I don’t want to miss out on the fabulous BBQs that my boy Smoove hosts! The…

Happy Days

This is the first summer that I haven’t had my son, Robert, visit me here in Spain. I used to love the summer holidays as both Charlotte, my daughter, and Rob would be out here for the full six weeks. It was the same when I lived in England. They’d spend every weekend with me and every school holiday. Sadly,…

The Football Club Shares website will, in time, be packed with content relating to football club investment opportunities and news. As the website is new, there is obviously a limited amount of content on there at the moment. However, the individual club pages hold the most important…

Popcorn Politics

I’ve been following the battle for the Conservative Party leadership this week. Following on from my last blog entry, this is some proper and authentic depressing shit. Anything that focuses around Brexit is enough to make you want to set up a noose and have done with it 😂🔫 So it’s an important day in that contest and at least…

My First Indian!

Earlier this week I had my first ever Indian meal. That’s right, it’s taken me 44 years to be dragged to an Indian restaurant! And, if I’m completely honest, I wasn’t kicking and screaming on the way there. I was actually looking forward to seeing what all the fuss was about. Bring it on! Those of you that know me,…

New York Jolly

I recently returned from an amazing couple of weeks in America. I spent some time upstate New York in Syracuse visiting my best friend, Smoove (above right). It had been 6 years since I last saw him so it was a great occasion as you can imagine. As well as meeting up with his family again and some old friends…
