The Hiding Place

His hiding place had been compromised. What the hell was he going to do now? He hadn’t anticipated this, hadn’t even thought of an escape plan if things should go wrong. He had foolishly assumed he was safe, that he had hidden himself well enough to avoid detection. But, detection was all too real a … Continue reading The Hiding Place

What She Found At The Top Of The Stairs

As the 8:10am train rolled into the crowded station, she could see the stairs that led up and off the platform on to the concourse. The stairs that she was minutes away from climbing to meet ‘him’ for the first time. She craned her neck in an attempt to see the top of the stairs, … Continue reading What She Found At The Top Of The Stairs

Writing Through It

It's hard to keep perspective When the walls are caving in A million miles an hour thoughts Send my head into a spin   'This one is worse than last time' I say, as I gasp for breath 'This time it's really happening' As I head towards my death   The panic rises swiftly A … Continue reading Writing Through It

Rhyme, But No Reason

I’ve always loved poetry, but I’ve never been any good at writing it. When I’m writing, I tend to write in the same way that I talk, which is sound if I’m writing a blog post about Christmas Shopping or defending my right to tell Holocaust jokes, but poetry is a completely different breed of … Continue reading Rhyme, But No Reason

25 Insights Into The Mind Of A 7 Year Old

As I mentioned this morning, I’ve done a little Q&A with the kid. There are 25 questions - some normal ones, some quirky ones. I’ve written down his answers exactly as he said them. He gave each one a lot of consideration. Boy, do I mean a lot. I think we can all agree they … Continue reading 25 Insights Into The Mind Of A 7 Year Old

What’s With All The Fucking Questions?

Having a proper ‘I can’t be arsed’ kind of day today, but I promised myself I’d post something daily. So, I’m just gonna add this quick little Q&A about me this morning and possibly do one with Osian later (different questions, obviously). Are you named after anyone? My dad. His nickname is Kim, so I … Continue reading What’s With All The Fucking Questions?

In Defence Of The Offensive

‘I guess Charles Manson will never get the chance now to fulfill his lifelong ambition of starting a family. Oh, hang on......’ Reading online this morning about the death of Charles Manson, I immediately started thinking of a funny status to post on Facebook. This is the result, it isn’t that great, but it got … Continue reading In Defence Of The Offensive

Scatty Sunday Stories

‘Insanity is knowing that what you’re doing is completely idiotic, but still, somehow, you just can’t stop it’ I think we can probably all agree that there are some proper mad bastards in the world. People who, for one reason or another, do things that are so bizarre, we can’t fully comprehend their thinking processes … Continue reading Scatty Sunday Stories

Christmas Shopping – The Ultimate Guide

Step 1 - Don’t fucking bother. Why put yourself through it? Stay at home, put your feet up and become a Scientologist or a Jedi Knight for the Christmas period, that way you don’t even have to celebrate it. Ah, if only, eh? If, like me, you don’t have the luxury of ditching the shopping, … Continue reading Christmas Shopping – The Ultimate Guide

Like An Idiot Misses The Point

‘I still miss you’ Did you think of anyone while you read that sentence? Did a particular person come straight into your head? Do you have that one person from your past that you still miss? I don’t mean obsess over or constantly crave like a junkie tweaking for their next fix, but just someone … Continue reading Like An Idiot Misses The Point
