Midnight At The Oasis

Hi Guys & Girls, Last year I was given a challenge by a colleague at my job, who could lose the most weight between Stuart (another colleague), himself and me. The winner would get himself a bounty of GBP 10.00 from each of the other competitors. I’m a highly competitive individual and HATE losing (unless […]

Shin Splints Suck!

Hi Guys & Girls, For anyone unaware, shin splints suck. BIG TIME. For the past several weeks I have been dealing with them and they really, really suck.

Hi Guys and Girls, Another long week, my kids seriously must hate me sleeping when I’m on shift.less than 4 hours for three of my four days! Let’s start with the customary MMA section. I gambled for the first time in a long time. I was never a gambler, I always, always used to lose. […]


Hi Guys & Girls, So it’s been a tough period, lack of sleep, coupled with a return to work after illness and an overtime shift. All in all I am quite exhausted… Nevertheless the show must go on, so lets start with MMA as has become customary. For weeks, I have said that April (from […]

Something Like A Phenomenon

Hi Guys & Girls, Its been a good couple of days, got a lot of things achieved. Another set of interview questions sent to a fighter, I’ve also pestered loads of other fighters (probably aiming higher than I should – but fuck it, you don’t ask you don’t get – I didn’t think I would […]
