Giving Up isn’t an option.

Giving up is the only option.


Ironically I just lost the post I had written earlier (while my ‘puter was updating) which started with the very words written above. But I think I can at…

The Storm In The Teacup

The Storm In The Teacup

Man, it looks serious in there
Copper brown waves rising to the height of the brim

The Little Things

I’m on a football road trip with one of my boys. Doesn’t happen often, and it’s great fun. He’s making me a Premier Inn morning cuppa, and the stringy bit from the teabag has separated from its origin and fallen…
