Don’t talk, just listen.

Rick and Carl sitting on the church steps

I was watching an episode of The Walking Dead on the train while on my way into work.

The main character Rick gave his son a single piece of advice and it’s a good one.

“Don’t talk, just listen, it’s a rule for life.”

Phombies

Phone Zombies - the apocalypse has arrived

I’m sure I’m not alone in my experience of slow moving people on public transport systems and in my specific  case London underground.

In the past the cause has more often than not been age or physical disability, which are both understandable and obesity which is unfortunately a fact of modern life for many people often due to circumstance.

I don’t mind…

Sorry love, I don't really care

I was having a late night catch up call with one of my partners after a couple of really busy days and the conversation was flowing really well until I asked for some input into a decision or at least some indication of direction. I was greeted with a simple answer of “I don’t really mind”. This pretty much cut the conversation dead and really annoyed me for some reason, so I went to sleep wondering why.

Two fingers tied together with string - codependency

I found the following blog post in my daily field quite a while ago and squirreled it away for a suitable moment.

Take the time to read it through and I think you’ll agree it’s worth it.

“Couples that are codependent scare me. Codependant Polyamorous couples terrify me…

First poly post of 2018

2018 - happy new year

This is my first poly post for 2018 and I’m really not sure what to write about on this dark, cold and wet morning.

I’m on the train on my way down to London for the week and awaiting the arrival of my breakfast (eggs benedict). I didn’t travel down on Monday due to a threatened strike by the rail union. I suspect the unions and rail companies could do with some lessons in communication based upon what I’ve read about the dispute.

Tis the season to be poly…

Three Christmas stockings hanging on the mantelpiece

Over the past few years I’ve not had a particularly good experience during the festive period. It’s the time of year when I always find my available time stretched to and beyond breaking point.

My time has to be carefully distributed between my kids, partners, friends, family and of course myself and not necessarily in that priority order. Unfortunately it never seems to go quite as far as other people think it should or can, so the net result is usually disappointment all round and the real loser always seems to be me (nail hand to forehead).

Slut…

Dictionary definition of the word slut

I’ve had a tough weekend looking after my kids and this has been topped off by a member of my extended family deciding that it’s okay to describe one of my partners as a “Slut” and then a few other choice words.

Now this word has many meanings for different people, but in this case was used purely as a weapon of attack and derogatory term, deliberately utilised to enforce there feelings of disgust at our life style choice and sow poison seeds of derision and hate.
