2016 continues to be a nasty bastard!

For the last couple of days and however how many days or weeks to come that we will have to wait for confirmation and recovery, I will be taking time off the wonderful world of blogging.

In a filthy mirror of lovely Auntie J, my Pop has had a section of intestines taken away for testing, after calling me with pain and cold shivers Saturday afternoon.

I ignored his pleas to wait until Monday and arranged medical help, as anybody with a small brain and love in their heart would do.

The next moment he was being taken to the operating theatre.

I travelled the reasonably long journey to the hospital and was relieved to be able to hug him before he left.

He is in good shape this day, although understandably worried about the lumps found in the piece taken to be tested.

My head isn’t there for words, therefore I will bog off for a while.

Stay safe peeps and may the universe look after you and yours.



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.

  6. I’ll be thinking of you, and having words with 2016

  7. Thanks dudes and dudettes!
    I’m deeply humbled by your thoughts and virtual hugs.
    Pop is recovering slowly -as you’d expect for anyone who has been sliced open and had their guts pulled out, examined and then a part removed- and we are still waiting on results from tests on the lumps they removed.
    He has good days and bad. I’m taking the positives as best I can.
    One) if I hadn’t overruled his stubbornness the doctors say he would’ve contracted septicaemia and be gone by now. Therefore it’s time we all learned that stubbornness in the face of our own health is detrimental and needs to alter.
    2)…fuck…who needs a second.
    Fanks again!
    All the best to you and yours.
