My life is changing rapidly.

Last night my girlfriend Yulia and I got engaged.  The smart money was on a throw-back, but the promise of a glamorous lifestyle in Sakhalin won her over.  Now all I have to do is buy a ring, but I’m fast running out of kidneys.

Tim & Yulia

Seriously, I couldn’t be happier.


Ring purchased, now scouring eBay for dialysis machines.

  3. ps please tell me the ring was platinum

    Oops! Sadly not…white gold, I’m afraid.

  4. So long as the future Mrs N is happy. That’s all that counts.

    By the way real men don’t need dialysis – they just strain the blood through an old sock.
