Time to be a little less grumpy than I was in my last post. Isn't the the Tour de France great this year? Our boy Mark Cavendish in the green jersey, Bradley Wiggins and David Millar both well placed, and an old guy from Texas looking as if he might well rise from the grave to pee on the French nation's collective chips. (If you are going to mix metaphors, do it boldly, say I)
I'm having a rather different mid-life crisis. I've been unwell for three years with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis - M.E. I've found it to be a Major Encumbrance. I've lost my job, we've sold our house and moved to somewhere rented, and recast a lot of plans. How will we cope? What will happen next?
58 years old, became unemployed in April 2009 because of ME after 31 years as a Social Worker.
I've been married for nearly 33 years to Susanneke, and we have two sons and a daughter, all now astoundingly grown up.
