Not a professional writer just a slightly homesick Northern bloke in Swindon; not going to blog about Swindon in particular but what comes in to my life – hopefully a glimpse into the soul of stranger might prove thought provoking, or even amusing I don’t know – but thank you for passing by.
My crazy mixed up life includes a German partner who lives 75 miles away, a job in a town I don’t particularly like – though I don’t get to see it much now since I am kind of commuting all my spare hours – a dysfunctional family, though I am beginning to think I am pretty normal when I start comparing them to other people. openly gay and a Christian (of sorts), add to this mix being a trainspotter I guess my life is pretty well, screwed!
Oh I am also a Socialist, and a ‘Left-Winger’ at that; considering that it was the ‘Left Wing’ that gave us the National Health Service, Social Justice, the Welfare State and stopped floggings in Prisions I am really happy to be called Left Wing, so I wear that as badge of honour.
I do have a Twitter account which is badly spelled left-wing soundbites with the occasional moments of lucidness, oh and occasionally pictures 😉
If you want to swing by there it’s … wait for it … SwindonG !
