So, here I am, the first full day after the move. It has been fairly frenetic getting shopping in and such like, that has partially taken my mind off the fact that I am now an absentee father in totality. That part will take some considerable getting used to for all parties and my ex has no intention of smoothening that transition but ultimately she is now an irrelevance in all but matters concerning the kids. I have spoken to no-one other than in shops today and yet I still feel more like I have a life, slightly less like the boy in the bubble. I am more in control of my destiny now, in so far as whilst I do not believe in an ethereal fate type of destiny I believe you can cede control of your direction to other people and this has been very much how I have lived the last few years.

As an interesting little experiment and being a right morbid bastard I took this test before I left and took it once giving the answers of my previous lifestyle and once with the prospective lifestyle that I fully intend to have now. The results are below, not the most medically proven of things I’ll grant you but for a sound basis to back up my good intentions to change it does the job.


You Will Die at Age 64


64


You’re pretty average when it comes to how you live…

And how you’ll die as well.

and then hopefully the way things will be:


You Will Die at Age 76


76


You’re pretty average when it comes to how you live…

And how you’ll die as well.

Bit of an eye-opener when you see it like that eh?

Dr Mandrake’s gonna live until he is 70, giving me 42 years of fucking shit up.
[Redbaron responds – Doesn’t that mean we’re both going to die in around 2047?! Spooky macabre connection, we’re Death Brothers mate!]

Congrats on the move. I know you’re happy to have it (nearly) over. Interesting, the change in years. Good things to come, Baron. Good things to come.

Fifty-fucking-eight. I’ve only got 38 years left, even with your old situation I’d die first. How could you share with me something that gives me news like that after i’ve been so nice lately. Hmph
