Gardening job – Day three.

Gardening job – Day three.

Today has been flat out weird. I woke up too early and mooched around the flat for a bit. I chatted to Dora Argh and John Rapp who are two of the funniest people I have had the pleasure to meet. I often wonder what project I will be working on with each person I meet. I imagine creating the weirdest sit-com ever with Dora. I just want to hear John do audio books. His voice is like treacle poured over the lungs of a chronic smoker, but in a good way. 

So, anyways, I was gardening today. I am an expert with the leaf blower apparently, according to my boss. I am really not, it is just blowing leaves in a certain direction. I realised that, if cowboys rustle cows, then as someone who pushes leaves in a certain direction, then I am a leaf rustler. Yes, I have been waiting to make that stupid joke for over eight hours, but damn it felt good. 

Then as, I came home, I saw that the mega-super-awesome Dr Kirsten Slater had nominated for a Liebster Award. Oh, man, you have no idea how much I love you for that Kirsten. It was such a cool thing to do. You didn’t need to, but you did. So thank you.

I guess I just want to express how much small kindnesses mean to me. I will repay that kindness a hundred fold. 

Take care buddies, 



About davidmbeecroft

Hello and welcome to my blog. Please feel free to have an explore. My name is David Beecroft. I am 38 years old. I co-founded and ran a small scale touring theatre company called Screwed & Clued in 1998. I went on to tour the Canadian Fringe Theatre Festival circuit over the following five years. I have written six original plays, the last ‘The Poe Show’ won a Best in Fest award at the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival. I worked in a social care setting for ten years and now work in a special needs school. I have sent my first novel off to agents and considering self-publishing if that does not work. I co-host a radio show on Surrey Hills Community Radio called Daves of the Week where we feature charities for a six week period. I live with my fiance and two pet Degus. I started this blog when suffering from depression and attending therapy, so a large part of this blog was about my experience and thoughts of that. Since then I am in a much better place and I write about life after depression and how I stay (or try to) ahead of it happening again. I also like to look at the happier sides of life and try to put a positive spin on serious subjects.
