I’m not a surgeon, but I have been known to perform a pastectomy on myself and with some of my coaching clients.

A divorce, a broken engagement and getting dumped two weeks before I was due to get married took its toll on me.

For a long time, I kept looking back to see what could have could have been, but in so doing lost sight of what is and what could be.

I kept thinking, what if I had done things differently. But in hindsight, I did the best I could with the immaturity that I had.

Slowly but surely, it dawned on me that my history isn’t my destiny and that the past should be a place of reference and not a place of residency.

I realised that there simply ain’t no future in the past.

Fast forward twenty years and I’ve gone from nowhere to now here. The scars of the past have faded, the grey hair has brought an ounce of wisdom and my soul is soaring…..

Fourteen years of happy marriage, two delightful kids and I’m living happily even after.

Tommy Cooper classics

  1. A man walks into a greengrocer’s and says, I want five pounds of potatoes please. And the greengrocer says, we only sell kilos … so the man says, "Alright then, I’ll have five pounds of kilos."
  2. I went to the doctor’s the other day and I said "Have you got anything for wind?" So he gave me a kite.
  3. Sometimes I drink my whiskey neat. Other times I take my tie off and leave my shirt out.
  4. A man walked into the doctor’s, the doctor said "I haven’t seen you in a long time." The man replied, "I know, I’ve been ill."
  5. What do you call a fish with no eyes? A fsh.
  6. A man walked into the doctors, he said, "I’ve hurt my arm in several places." The doctor said, "Well don’t go there anymore."
  7. Two cannibals eating a clown. One says to the other "Does this taste funny to you?"
