I’ve been away for a couple of days – both physically and mentally – and it’s been pricked with a selection of emotions. Some delicious, others tongue wilting.

As is the way of this life.

Gotta have a slice of acid cake with your sweet tea to enable you to understand the difference, so they say. 

Whoever “they” may be.

While away I tried my hand at a spot of photography for a friend’s wedding and must say that I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

The above pic is an unedited one I took of the beautiful bride, Helen, seeing her amazing little boy, Ethan, all dressed up.

Big congrats and thanks for allowing me to be part of their day to Big Jason, Helen and Ethan. Special love witnessed is a wonderful gift! 

After I have sorted through the two thousand pics I had a clicking finger in I will drop a few on here for you to see.

I then came back and visited Auntie Joanie in the hospice and had my heart sliced in two. Bless her for her strength and humility in the face of such stacked cards.

To the bravest woman I have ever known.

Also big love to her two daughters for the ache they must feel.

On another brighter note, I have also just noticed that I have now reached and breached 5,000 followers! 

Fank you one and all. Well, especially those who are kind enough to stay around a while.

Hope you are all well. 

Normal service is about to resume.

Or as normal as my mind will allow. Which is as far from normal! As far from normal as I am from Melbourne! 



About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
