Going Gonzo – Pretending To Be Well.

Tuesday, 29th October 2019. 17.21 I live in a world where I have to beg for a doctors appointment. Sorry. That’s a lie. I live in a world where, even if I beg, I don’t get a doctors appointment. That’s karma for you. Anyway, I’m back to feeling like death. I’m sure there is a lesson to be learnt but …

Going Gonzo – Disguised With Vibrant Colours.

Tuesday, 22nd October 2019. 07.05 Waterloo & City-tastic this morning. Back to Lego. I’m doing a double today. I have another job starting at 17.30. 13.12 Lego was a miserable affair. Disguised with vibrant colours and lights. I’m out now, and sitting in a pub near Chancery Lane tube. A quick pint of Guinness before I have to head over …

Going Gonzo – Lost Tools.

Thursday, 17th October 2019. 09.56 Sean’s lost his tools. What a cock! Luckily, it’s a little job and I have tools to spare. 15.26 Obviously, I brought it up every 5 minutes, all day long. I doubt he will lose them again. Also, I just walked to the front carriage of the Reading train on Platform 24. Some prick broke …

Going Gonzo – Innocent

Wednesday, 2nd October 2019. 15.04 Another Reading train, another cow lager. Most of the morning was spent signing documents about acting in a professional manner and explaining to the other trades on site that The Bouch was innocent. It was all fucking tedious and probably not helped by me, periodically shouting,”THE OLD BURLINGTON STREET ONE IS INNOCENT!” Yep. I’m an …

Going Gonzo – On The Cards

Thursday, 26th September 2019. 10.03 I’ve just submitted most first full week payment in God knows how long. Just in the nick of time as well, as it’s bills week next week. I would prefer to spend it on a couple of 8-balls, some pills, grass and loads of quality alcohol but it doesn’t appear to be on the cards. …

Going Gonzo – Used To Be Cool.

Tuesday, 24th S3ptember 2019. 10.59 I can’t remember the last time I stood outside a pub and waited for it to open. It’s probably because you can get a drink at nine in the morning in Staines. Anyway, that’s what I’m doing. Standing outside the Leicester Arms, on the corner of Glasshouse Street. 11.06 The barman was slightly surprised to …

Going Gonzo – Back To School

Thursday, 5th September 2019. 10.58 Everything appears to be back to normal.Louis went back to school yesterday and I went back to work today. Hopefully, there will only be minimal days off before the big Bedford job starts. The only thing I’ve learnt this week is, don’t put cheap tattoos from candy cigarette packets on your hand. Three showers later …

Going Gonzo – Endless

Thursday, 22nd August 2019. 17.28 This latest bout of limbo seems endless. I’m just trying to keep my morale up. I am definitely a disgusting wreck of a man though. I’m not feeling healthy but I don’t care enough to do anything about it. Apart from that, I’ve had a couple of days work this week and discussed Louis’ “after …

Going Gonzo – Hope’s Up.

Thursday, 1st August 2019. 06.47 I think I got past the first round of bills with a hundred pound to spare. Bonus. Well, maybe a little more but I bought the boys pizza last night. And thirty quids worth of pot! Heed the words of Freewheelin’ Franklin: 10.07 The Bouch finally arrived at about nine. He bought me a coffee …

Going Gonzo – Shit Skipper.

Monday, 29th July 2019. 14.32 Another week yay! I have work tomorrow but nothing else confirmed. Then I have about a grands worth of bills coming out on Wednesday. I just can’t wait! It’s so exciting………… Nah. I just can’t do it. Pretend everything is OK? I can’t even manage it when I have no reason to be sad. Let …
