Back to base…

When I first saw this picture, some years ago, I laughed so much. Apparently there’s this guy, sitting next to the Queen showing his private parts while the picture is being taken. If this picture is true (I am not sure that it is not tampered) that guy is extremely brave or foolish! If he did flash the photographer he must be somewhere in Siberia now breaking rocks or something. I can’t imagine that it would be well received by his superiors…

I am not exactly sure why I brought this up to be honest. This picture always makes me think about bravery, foolishness, maturity and life altering choices. Probably it’s the time of the year when “big” decisions are made which in most cases last for a couple of weeks (diets, quit smoking, spending more time in the gym, etc).

I’m back to London after spending my holidays in Greece. I had a wonderful time. I ate a lot and I got some time away from technology. Unfortunately, I got ill for a couple of days with high fever but I was well taken care of. Staying indoors while being sick meant that my parents saw me a lot which kept them happy. I didn’t manage to go to my hometown for a couple of days as planned though and I didn’t see some old and very dear friends of mine this time.

I spoke to my mother about ‘JJ’. I told her that I’m in a relationship for more than a year now and that I’m very happy. She seemed content that I don’t sleep around and she admitted checking on me through facebook. She’s seen our pictures. She added that my father doesn’t know about her profile and she switches it off when he enters the room… I’ll let her handle him for the time being. I don’t want to get involved much.


  1. I think it's really cool that you spoke to your mother about JJ and that she's been keeping tabs on you.

    I'm glad you made it back safely :-)

  2. I'm glad you had a good time back in Greece...sorry about being sick, though. I'm fighting a cold now. It's also great that you were able to talk to your mom about JJ. I hope all is well back in the UK!

  3. @Cubby Thanks. I'm glad to be back...

    @Bobby Lot's of people are sick this time of year... Yes, all is good in the UK.
