Naked Attraction…

Naked attraction

It was suggested by one of my partners that I should watch the controversial channel 4 dating show “Naked Attraction” because a particular episode in the new season includes a self  confessed “polyamorus couple”, she also warned be that it might make me slightly angry and she was right.

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’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).
