A Good Time Battling the Elements

So apparently I’m the only person who likes to sail in the rain. Sailing makes me feel alive in general, but sailing in the rain?? That’s like feeling alive, twice. it’s like living two lives simultaneously. The powerful winds, and the lashing rain, all just to remind you that you’re alive…and hey, being alive isn’t …

I AM the Good Boy

I just saw a dog give a motivational speech, and it was beautiful. Of course, it had to be subtitled because no humans understand dog language, but even so…it was one of the most invigorating things I’ve ever seen. I never even knew dogs could even talk in that way, let alone come up with …

Cirque du Fifth Birthday Party

Being a stay-at-home dad is the best, but it’s no walk in the park. I usually find it’s the things I’d least expect that end up being the most challenging. For example, offering sincere consolation over the loss of a random pebble, or planning a fifth birthday party that pleases everyone. Lauren is obsessed with …

Tracing Paper, and Also Rats

If there was one thing I hate irrationally, it’s tracing paper. When you think about it, tracing paper has no real reason to exist.

In short, I’d like to think I’m a good physical role model for my clients. Sometimes, though, I’ll …

Raining Shower Screens

Well, there goes the shower screen, along with my relaxing bath. It’s been hanging off its hinges for months, and it finally gave way just now, hitting the corner of the bath on the way down and cracking – fortunately, not into a million pieces. Good times! A lot of the fittings in this house …

Protein, Nature’s Steroid

So yeah, you could say at this point that I’ve basically become 90% protein. Everything I eat has protein, everything I drink besides water has protein, and water doesn’t really count because…it’s water. I’m trying to get things to the point where everything I eat is protein, at which point I basically don’t have to …

OOAK Haircut

I went over to my friend Maisie’s flat today. Turns out she shares it with her brother, who I couldn’t help noticing was sporting a criminally great haircut. It’s not every day you see a guy who’s rocking something different to five of his closest mates, but this was genuinely one of a kind. When …
