The Bucket List

Life doesn’t have to be all about work and sleep, so every now and again, I like to tick a few things off my bucket list, and here are a few of them.

2012/2013 – Run a Half Marathon

After years of sitting down, it appeared that spending far too long online finally caught up with me. I found myself ballooning to 15 and a half stone and a wedding suit measurement of 38″ waist for my trousers, was enough to make me take drastic action.

I enrolled on the Couch potato to 5k program and went on to complete the Birmingham Half Marathon in 2012 and 2013 whilst also getting back down to the more acceptable 34″ waist trousers.

My first ever Half Marathon.

June 2009

Three Peaks Challenge Climb Ben Nevis (Scotland) Scarfell (England) and Snowdon (Wales)in 24 hours.

Finally, every writer needs a muse and mine is my beautiful wife, she puts up with my fads and latest crazy ideas whilst also inspiring me to be more creative.

  1. Just read your post on tankpark salute …firstly so sad to hear about your daughter…this song is by far greater than the writer Mr Bragg could ever have imagined…let me explain I live in Melbourne and 12 years ago was driving home and got an incredible stomach pains…I mean ..incredible..they came and they went…that night I’ m walking my dog and as normal singing aloud what ever pops into my head..TPS..suddenly I’m i’ m in tears ????? Next morning my brother calls from UK ..my dad has been admitted to hospital with stomach cancer !
    I fly over and recovery is good, anyway yaers later I commit to learning this song on guitar ..the night I manage to do it I get a call from my mum that my dad has lung cancer and has been taken to hospital…..MY DAD passed away in 2007 and MR Bragg played this in 2008 while in australia on acoustic guitar whow don’t mind saying it I stood at the bar and just bawled my eyes out and to my amazement was not confronted by anyone….great song and I share your grief …god bless

    1. Thanks so much for taking the time to reply and share your story with me too.#

      We should never underestimate the power of a simple song, I think Tank Park Salute was written straight from the heart and from Billy’s own grief.

      From his pain, this song was created and has since helped so many people all over the world deal with the same grief, I feel that there is something quite beautiful and poetic about that,
