"You don't plan your own son's funeral"

It was Marc's funeral yesterday. I think it made much more of an impact on me than I ever thought it would. I kinda felt that we'd lost one of "us". Us being the 6 kids, of the 3 families. It…

To Mark

One of the kids I grew up with died this morning. Meningitis. He started feeling ill a couple of days ago. Shows how fast a life can be cruely taken away. It's hard to accept.

Thoughts are with his…

Tired

Reading, Alcohol, and the best gig I've ever seen

Reading Festival was good as always, maybe not as good as last year, but we still had a laugh, and were wasted pretty much constantly for 3 days, or stoned in the case of Bex, Dilly and Dunx... they had…

Reading Festival!

I can't believe it's Reading time again, can't believe it's been a year. By the way, I'm so scared by how fast time goes by!

In 11 days time, the end of an era will be marked by the closing of the best,…

Our beloved phones

You know what, altho we all love our mobiles, or cells for the Americans, I've figured out why we all get sooo irritated by others talking on their phones while on public transport... I mean, sure, it's…
