Going Gonzo – Stale Square Crumpets.

Saturday, 6th July 2019. 10.29 I’ve just eaten a couple of stale crumpets. It all started out well but quickly became unpalatable. It’s a disappointing start to a Saturday. I hadn’t really planned past yesterdays debauchment so I’m at a loose end. Right. Motivation. Motivation. Motivation? 12.56 I could have predicted it really. I got bored. Drank a beer. Ate …

Going Gonzo – I Left My Pomade In The Car.

Wednesday, 3rd July 2019. 12.11 I got up. I stuck on a pair of shorts and my Hans Island: karate Tournament t-shirt. Then I took Louis to school for our 08.15 meeting. The bottom line is, we won. The other kid has been expelled but Louis has been asked not to socialise with the group who witnessed it as they …

Going Gonzo – The Crisp Packet Escalation.

Tuesday, 2nd July 2019. 11.05 Thank God for Ray Davies. My first thought when I woke up was suicide. My next thought was “No”. I’m way too selfish for something that mundane. There’s just not enough…..? How can I put it?….. Showmanship. I was half way through the next plan of starting a cult and convincing a load of other …

Going Gonzo – Unknown Struggle.

Tuesday, 25th June 2019. 06.17 It feels like summer now. It’s raining. The fast train is cancelled so I’ve been forced on to the dreaded loop train. Like being on a bus, it stops everywhere. 08.34 We weren’t late, but we sat in Costa for half an hour and watched the world go by the window.Today already feels like a …

Going Gonzo – Wet Shave.

Friday, 21st June 2019. 08.32 I almost shit myself when I looked in the mirror this morning. I saw the reflection and thought someone was about to mug me. It turns out I had a wet shave last night, whilst drunk. 10.53 On the way home. Quality Friday finishing time. I look like Lex Luther. Or Eastern European. 12.43 Home! …

Going Gonzo – Looking For The Next Thing.

Friday, 7th June 2019. 11.35 As lovely as the sleep was that I just had, I seem to have woken up with a donk on my head. I don’t remember donking it. Today I have two tasks: 1. Sort the washing out. 2. Make a chilli. Still. No rush. Fags and coffee first. What do you think Bear? He doesn’t …

Going Gonzo – Caution! Wet Window Sills

Monday, 3rd June 2019. 09.26 Back at Holmes Terrace. We are all wearing our new logo’d t-shirts. Louis seems to have enjoyed this first sleep in a shed. He has made it into a shrine to dead hip-hop stars, guns and smoking pot. Teenagers! I was never like that……. I was much worse. 11.46 Self-explanatory really. 15.08 Sitting here, on …

Going Gonzo – Working For Headspace

Monday, 27th May 2019. 16.21 My plan to hit the dump was flawed. When I arrived at the queue of cars about half a mile away, I realised that I could lose my whole day waiting to get in there. I swiftly turned around. The summerhouse is now ready to be painted. Once that’s done I will lay the carpet …
