New Short Fiction


I’ve just posted a short story I’ve cobbled together as a slightly stream of consciousness thing to the Fiction section. It’s called Glittering Future and is slightly NSFW in a cheeky seaside postcard way. It was inspired by a recent conversation and is a little bit different from what I’ve been writing recently.

Hope you enjoy it and it raises an occasional gentle smile.

Diabetic Review

Today was results day for the blood test I had a couple of weeks ago, and by and large the nurse is okay with what it threw up. My cholesterol is steady at 3.7, and my blood has apparently been stable at 4.7 for the best part of two years now.

The only wrinkle is that my blood pressure is up again, but I’ve been feeling a bit stressed the last few days so I’m not too surprised. I have to go back in about three weeks for another test, so fingers crossed I’m more chilled next time.

All in all then, pretty good, and no alteration to my medication regime, which keeps life simple. Guess that crosses one problem off the list for six months!
