How Not To Engage With People

I need to let you know about a weird and dumb experience I had recently with a Facebook 'friend'. The word friend is interesting in itself because Facebook people are acquaintances but are they really friends? Like I mean...

My Waterbed Broke

A strange thing happened to me on Sunday night. My four-poster waterbed bladder ripped open with a monster size hole and blasted out 889 litres of water into my bedroom.

My Mother Bought A Walker

It was a phone call I expected. It was always going to come. Let me take you back 12 months first though...
