Memories for boys 1

Going to the Natural History Museum with James on his seventh birthday. Having a Chinese meal with Stevan, Mark and Claire afterwards. Playing Hangman.

Going to see Prince Caspian with James, Ryan and Edith at one of those Sunday morning screenings. Charles Gant was there and asked about ‘Good’, which was in the MIA phase…

Going to the damp Youth Hostel in Yorkshire where James lost some Pokemon/Yu-Gi-Oh! cards to a younger boy. Walking on the moors with the family. Katy, James and Alex went on. Me and Luke went back to the pub Katy and I had seen years before, near the early nuclear warning installation…

Doing the thing when you go down the slope really fast at Suffolk ski slope. I went down with Luke between my legs.

Going to see The Magic Mirror Of Kengoladunum at St Osyth primary school with Alex. He must have been six. It was shortly before Good was on at Harwich which was June 2009.

Just before my stroke, going to Tattingstone BBQ evening with Luke and Alex. Luke went on a horse!

Going to the Natural History Museum in Colchester with Luke on the bus, post-stroke in 2014. Getting a lift with Niall. Waiting forever at the bus stop by Castle Park…

Spending a night in the tent with Luke in the back garden post-stroke – and being stuck when I was zipped up inside, with only one hand…

I had a stroke on July 26th, 2013. I was a screenwriter. Don’t do that anymore. But have found another way to write.
