It would probably be a good idea, to provide a small introduction.

This is a blog about various life experiences. Some from the distant past and the rest from only a short while ago. it covers the whole of the human condition, from unemployment to employment , to alcohol, sex and bomb making. ( No instructions) Being irresponsible and an artist.

After 25+ years in the retail industry and related work. I have finally had enough. I am sick of shops and anything to with working in them, do not like the human race and am only interested in books, art, history, J and the cat’s

I live in Oxford,  am currently ‘self employed’ meaning I do not have an employer and  have ADHD which makes for a interesting and sometimes varied life.  I have recently moved my entire operation upstairs, into my spare room, here I am surrounded by books and can look out to the garden and beyond.  The art studio is still downstairs.


This is my garden from a few years ago, it looks nicer now.

I became an artist by accident, and after 70+ different employers I have pretty much given up working for anyone else apart from myself it provides more time for painting and other more satisfying activities.
