:: Inspiration

A busy couple of weeks has meant the neverendinglist has turned into a bit of a stopystartylist recently and I guess I’ve been needing some inspiration to get it moving again. The thing I’ve found with inspiration is that it doesn’t always come from within and sometimes moments or others inspire us. Nothing can empasize this more than the simple sheet of handwriting that came...

#201 Finding Arnoldo Jerkin

Whilst I’m probably reaching that time in life when I need to find myself, current commitments prohibit me from heading off to travel the world on a voyage of self discovery and to be honest I’m kinda happy with the person I am already. Things have got a bit heavy around here recently with Scrap Dog’s health issues¬†and talk of personal finance so it’s time to lighten the...

:: Man’s best friend

Today, the boys and I took Scrap Dog to the beach. Nothing exceptional in that as we’ve been many times before. But today it was so much more than just a trip to the beach. Three weeks ago I took Scrappy to the vet for a check up after he’d lost his bark and usual zest for life. Although I don’t speak Dog and Scraps struggles with English we’ve always been able to...

:: The big picture

I put this little post-it note up about 6 months ago and it has sat there taped to the kitchen wall ever since. These little notes have become synonymous with the neverendinglist and are dotted around the house forming some sort of massive notepad as I pen ideas in moments of inspiration. The problem is I’ve been struggling with inspiration for a picture fitting to adorn the wall in its...

#61 Carry no personal debt

What I have got, I have got. What I have not, I have not. Sunday gone I was lucky enough to have a piece I wrote featured on the personal finance website Get Rich Slowly* and it is something I am proud of if I’m honest. Whilst the neverendinglist is all about my journey through life, I have also been on a financial journey for the last few years after seeing the light in no uncertain...

#142 Run 100 miles

One day I may run 100 miles in one go, but for the time being to knock off #142 on the list I’m going to harness the power of people and embrace the school of mathematics. Unfortunately I’m no Pythagoras, but I have come up with my own theorem to help with this challenge and whilst mine may be of little use to confirm the length of the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle this...

#77 Sail across a sea with the boys

Following our first foray into sailing a few years back it would have been easy to consign it to the done and dusted pile and get on with something more sensible and down to earth. Anyone who knows me will know that I struggle a bit with down to earth though and have a strong love of everything outdoors. It’s a trait that seems to have passed from father to sons. Although by no means a...

#138 Take Dad to the TT

After having a pint with Dad recently it hit home that we should always make the most of our opportunities in life. Dad has always wanted to go to the Isle of Man TT races as he’s mad about bikes having spent a large chunk of his career riding them and a lot of leisure time tinkering with them. I’ll be honest, although I’m lucky enough to have experienced the TT races twice...

:: The little boy and the airplane

¬† The last time we sat in an airplane was nearly 4 years ago and at 5 and a bit years old Iestyn doesn’t really remember a whole lot about the experience. Over the last year he has been relentless in his quest to head into the sky so I’ve felt obliged to try and remedy the situation for him. Although the neverendinglist is in essence my ‘to do’ list, more and more of the...

#4 Learn to Unicycle

I can ride my bike with no handlebars! I feel life needs a bit more balance in it at the moment so it’s time to roll out the one wheeled bicycle. In secret the unicycle has been sat in the hall for the last 12 months waiting to be liberated. Not really sure what value this one is going to add to my life, but I think perhaps there is some sort of hidden metaphor in the fact that a unicycle...
