Hello! Thanks for stopping by. My first blog post of a spanking new blog. How very exciting!
So. What’s this one all about then? Well, as you may have guessed from the title of the blog and also from the title of this post, I’m going to try to make sense of life. Well, that’s not strictly true. In my 36 years on the planet, I am under the firm conclusion that life is throughly baffling in every single way. It gets no easier to fathom, and I have no doubt in the years ahead, I will only get more confused by it all. But, with this blog, the small amount of wisdom I have learnt, I will try and share with you, the good people of the world. And if you can help me out with your own thoughts and advice along the way, then all the better. Heaven knows I need all the help I can get.
A little while back, there started a running joke. Not so much of a joke, but general way of categorising things, situations, general happenings and the like.

Rules to live by. Things you can store deep within your memory for times to come. Things to loosely adhere to. Or simply things to read, pooh-pooh and ignore. After all who am I to claim to know anything about it?!
However, for want of a better idea, this blog shall duly start to look at random bits of the ‘Book of Life’. Bear with me. In my head it’s better than I’ve made it sound.
And, in conclusion to this first post, a far wiser man than I once said ‘the web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together.’ Here’s to all of it. The ups, the downs – and trying to work out how to get through all the bits in-between….
