The Year Of The Offensive – The Climb #344

Sunday 31st December 2017 2017 was a funny old year.  It was my Year of the Offensive … a year for me to push myself and claim the rewards for my hard work.  As I said back then “it’s going to be a year where I happen to it rather than it happens to me”. [...]

The Danger Of Doing What Is Expected – The Climb #343

Saturday 30th December 2017 I didn’t feel too bad this morning considering how much I’d had to drink at the party, but I was glad when some of the others who’d stayed over decided that we’d go to a greasy spoon.  I’m not sure whether it was just the hangover, but I think that was [...]

Swordfighting Party – The Climb #342

Friday 29th December 2017 This holiday period has been quite hectic.  I’ve been surprising social over the last couple of weeks and I’m now getting to the stage where I want the rich food gone and a return to healthy eating and quiet nights in.

Games Day 2017 – The Climb #341

Thursday 28th December 2017 Today was my annual games day, spent in the company of some of my oldest friends. I’ve known Nick and Simon since we volunteered in a youth charity together some 25 years ago.  It doesn’t seem that long ago… but we’ve been through a lot - good and bad - together.  [...]

Party Preparations – The Climb #340

Wednesday 27th December 2017 Today was spent running around getting ready for the big games day tomorrow. I got up late, but hey, it’s Christmas so it’s allowed.  Some of the snow had disappeared but the forecast said it was going to freeze which made me worry about people travelling tomorrow. I decided to walk [...]

Friends And Family – The Climb #336

Saturday 23rd December 2017 Today has been a lovely day spending it with people who are special to me. For reasons too long to go into, some of my family don't speak to each other.  I never felt that it was worth cutting off relations over and so I (feeling like a black sheep at [...]
