  • Thank you to my 2 carers, both from Romania, who are quite simply fantastic. I’ve long ago learned that that relationship is incredibly important to my wellbeing. Having these 2 professional yet fun girls in my l […]

  • So many of us have had so much help from Back Up… this seems to be a free way of returning it!… copy & pasted…

    “Did you know you can raise money for Back Up when you shop at Amazon at no extra c […]

  • Now I know England lost, and Wales won, and England had lost 3 games in a row…. but seriously, was this sort of language strictly necessary…..?

    God bless the fat, baldy Englishman that he is ❤️

  • Just before being tempted to buy antiques – not .

  • Spasms crazy all day again- though I did have the catheter changed by the District Nurse, who was lovely. 

    Sadly I’d had to have a word with the practice manager about the rudeness of the doctor’s rece […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Sigrid. 5 days, 9 hours ago

    Went to see a real superstar in the making last night – Sigrid ( from Sweden ) with my ever so cool girl. How sweet was she?! ( Sigrid i mean – though actually my date too )  21 and a bundle of sunshine, I’d sa […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, True.. 5 days, 19 hours ago

    A text conversation just now.. ( after I’d sent some video footage of a gig last night)

    Her – Hey bit dark but sounds good! Hope all good with you. Off to a course about dementia! Hope to see you soon could c […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Check out the fans! 1 week ago

    • Russ, you should have a weekly spot in the ‘Evening Standard’ : RB’s Gig Guide.

  • After a pretty torrid nearly 5 year stretch, I’d say things are looking up, with a brighter future in sight.

    Ive tried ever so hard these last 5 years to smile in spite of the demons at work inside my head, b […]

  • After the best 3 days ive had since my injury, and after seeing Morrissey in London ( truly incredible – never seen fan adulation like it – ‘ middle class’ adults just throwing themselves at him, both sexes, and […]

  • Wheelchair users to get priority spaces on buses
    Wheelchair users will be given priority over mothers with pushchairs under new bus guidelines, the Government has announced.
    The decision follows a landmark […]

  • See below an email conversation between myself and a friend of mine from school – when I say a friend, he was a lad that was 2 years above me in school but we played in the school Senior 15 rugby Team together ( i […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, 2 am. 1 week, 6 days ago

    My spasms are now regularly worse than they’ve ever been. It’s as though I have a UTI all of the time, but I don’t have one.

    The upside is that I cope with them far better than I ever have. I manage to large […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Conversation.. 2 weeks ago

    Im seeing a band this evening with my buddy ( also a Russ ).

    I texted him to confirm he was still going.

    His reply ‘ I was going to say no as I am on crutches, then the irony kicked in. See you th […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Might work? 2 weeks, 1 day ago

    Ive actually got my carer to tie my ankle to the bottom of the bed ( soft cuff ) to see if that will work. I can certainly feel the jerks of the omnipresent spasms less, as a consequence.

    Its bondage Jim, but […]

  • Ive experienced a massively increased amount of spasming over the last 2 weeks.  My left leg seems to jump all day and night.

    At the lecture i went to earlier it was very hard to concentrate through the […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Packing 2 weeks, 2 days ago

    With a month to go before I’m homeless, I started sorting and packing with Krisztina today. Lots of stuff will go to charity. Any tramps reading this, please pop round – though Marino wool not on offer.

    I h […]

    • I have been clearing out my Husband’s things. I heard something go bump this morning so I out my head up into the loft and I can’t believe what my Husband has put up there. There is loads of wire and a television set plus loads of records. When I am clearing out my clothes I always think that if I haven’t worn it for a year then I obviously don’t need it so I throw it away. Margaret x x PS I am still laughing about the tramp –

  • ♠Just read your recent post re carer, sorry it went so wrong but sounds best that she is outta your life for ever.

    I only have a tiny percent of understanding how vulnerable these situations must make you f […]

  • ♦Thé Stereophonics were brilliant, as expected.

    Getting back wasn’t so easy, but by 12.30 I was back safely. Thanks to the amazing Pia, yet again.

    After about half an hour of the gig, a bloke came on stag […]

  • So… Pia and i go to a gig. It’s an extremely cold night ( its one of the coldest nights in recent UK history ). I have 3 layers on – my gig t shirt, my loose fleece, and ( the one that actually keeps me warm ) t […]

    • Easy solution, Russ : get on Amazon and buy a new one. Put it down to the extraordinary kindness of a sensitive & caring woman like Pia.
