As an adult male, I have found it hard to talk about and express my feelings some times. You know, men don't have feelings, or emotions, or cry etc. Well that's just crap.

Imagine, it's 3.45am on a Saturday morning, you wake up as it's your natural instinct when your … Continue reading Instincts…..
We are in a world wide pandemic situation right now....we get it. I've noticed that everyone has turned into blogger or vlogger. Some have even mastered the art of producing some high end video footage of the most random shit I've ever seen. We are talking studio footage quality, so it's amazing that so many … Continue reading Morgan Freeman is the narrator right?!
Haircuts....are they still a fashionable thing? I've not paid to have my hair cut since about 1998 or 1999....it was last century, at a barber's when we lived in Derby, called McFlys, a lifetime ago.....I think it cost under £5.

Social isolation and distancing in our small sea side harbour village is pretty easy. In the … Continue reading If Joy Division did anthems….

So, I hate thinking that Magoo isn't feeling OK. He's been told time and time again, that's it's ok, not to be ok. Something which I think he totally understands. A month or so ago, he had a total crying breakdown one Friday night. After having a lengthy and positive chat with him, we realised … Continue reading Fortnite and the rise of social anxiety.
So, I've been A.W.O.L, M.I.A for a little while. Not just myself, but as a family, we have had a lot going on recently, and personally, I haven't had the time or inclination to write any posts. My bad. I have however, been spending a great deal of time with my wife, and son, thus … Continue reading Absence makes the heart grow fonder?!
Hello folks. So with the demise of the last blog, due to lots of interfering factors, like we said previously, we are alot about starting again. The main purpose is to write down our lives. The main author will normally be myself, and taken from my view point, Magoos mom will sometimes chip in once … Continue reading The times they are a changing.
So, our old blog account, thebeanspooner.com is no more. We had hassle after hassle with it, and to make life easier for the 3 of us, our dog and our cat, we decided, like everything in life, sometimes it's better to get rid of the old rubbish, the hangers on, so to speak, and grab … Continue reading What’s going on?
