Thank you for your kind words.

My stepson received an e mail with the news his covid test was negative.

Have self isolated since Tuesday and have struggled mentally. A very strange feeling and one i wish i could have handled better. Couldnt find the inner strength.

Tomorrow is a new day.

Evening Diary,

The mists are beginning to clear after last weeks period of self isolation. To those who are going through the same or about to i send positive thoughts.

Was a priviledge to be part of chat in both todays sessions. Fun, honesty and all there for the same purpose.

Have had a couple of gambling thoughts creep in recently. Addiction has been calling at my weakest point trying to convince me a punt would be fun

A sustained period of excercise beckons. Football and badminton tomorrow. Football friday night and sunday afternoon.

Saturday allows me a treat at a bird of prey centre and being able to fly some Harris Hawks will be unique. My family clubbed together to get me the experience as a christmas gift last year however covid has made things difficult. I am humbled for such a wonderful gift.

Mentally now getting stronger and excercise will play a large part towards this.

I wish you all weĺl

Hey Bal, 

Well done in resisting your urges. I ask you just one thing. I know a Harris Hawk is a beautiful and fine bird of prey. 🦅 But can you please keep it away from my pond as it is a predator of toad.

The last time I was in danger was the 4.30 at Kempton and we all know how that ended.

Best regards,

🐸

On this day 32 years ago i joined the best job in the world as a PC in the Met Police. Made friendships. Was part of a team. Met people who i protected and who protected me. 

Turned sour as the 1st mrs Bal died and i resigned. From then i became a compulsive gambler.

Tonight i have thoughts with joy and sadness in equal measures. I mourn the loss of colleagues and friends but i hold onto my memories. 

I celebrate my rock, my new wife. I am over 5 years gamble free due to the support she has provided.  For that i am humbled.

I am not perfect but i am giving it a go.

Best
