"Why should I not publish my diary? I have often seen reminiscences of people I have never even heard of, and I fail to see—because I do not happen to be a 'Somebody'—why my diary should not be interesting." - Charles Pooter (The Diary of A Nobody).

Giving Up

December 10, 2018
December 12th 2018, 8:23Pm Home, Bradford. I am keyboarded up once again. It's a big, blocky clunker of a thing from Dell, but at least it won't break and types nice and accurate. As a recap for the last couple of days, particularly my nonsensical entry yesterday, it is very apparent that my Dad ...

    December 9th 2018, 10:38Pm Home, Bradford. New keyboard should arrive tomorrow. This onscreen keyboard is so bad, I am going to write the rest of this entry without correcting mistakes so you can see for yourselves: Today started off pretty well, looked after tue lids and nipped to the supermaeke...

    December 9th 2018, 1:10Am Home, Bradford. One of my kids has spilled a drink on my wireless keyboard and it is now completely borked. At least I think it was one of them, the wife remains a suspect. Shame, because I would have quite a few things to talk about today. We found out there…

    December 8th 2018, 12:04Am Home, Bradford. Oops, missed a day yesterday. Oh well. If I manage to not miss any more that will be pretty good, but in all honesty my life isn't all that interesting most of the time. Yesterday I just went to work and came home again. Today was pretty much the…

    December 5, 2018
    December 5th 2018, 10:29Pm Home, Bradford. Apparently the country is going to hell in a handcart. I haven't noticed, though I have noticed the price of a decent loaf has gone up by 5p again. I've been quite disillusioned with news and the media lately. Whenever I attempt to look at news all I see...

    December 4, 2018
    December 4th 2018, 5:44Pm Home, Bradford. Time has poured a little bit of oil on my water from last night. Thank goodness. I went to work today, where I worked hard for the hours I am expected to then buggered off home as soon as I could. This is rare for me, but I have…

  • … Then Mum Rang
    December 3, 2018
    December 3rd 2018, 7:39Pm Home, Bradford. I'm struggling a bit tonight. It was an alright evening to start with. After an okay day at work I put the kids to bed, read a bit of 'Christmas Carol', tidied up. Then Mum rang. She told me several things, most too personal for me to talk about…

    December 2nd 2018, 6:26Pm Home, Bradford. I'm in a bit of a grump tonight. I just attempted to read a bit of 'A Christmas Carol' to my daughters for bedtime, but gave up when the eldest started chucking teddies around trying to get her younger sisters to catch them. Hopefully it will be better to...

    December 1, 2018
    December 1st 2018, 5:42Pm Home, Bradford. In the 'old days', before OpenDiary's long hiatus, it was a tradition of mine to post entries every day in December. I usually managed it, but during my last attempt the site outages during OD's death throes caused me to give up. Five years later, I am go...

  • My 34th Birthday
    July 10, 2018
    July 10th 2018, 7:26Pm Home, Bradford. Today is my birthday. I am 34 years old. I don't really feel much about it. My first thought is that I am halfway to 68, which is likely the age I will retire at. I have had a really nice birthday. My boss gave me permission for leave…
