Nearly there…..


well its nearly the end of the week, and perhaps I do want to put my feel up but I suspect it may not quite happen just like that!

weekends plans have somewhat been shelved with the gin drinking being put back -reschedule rather than cancel



So what did I learn today?

Hi All,

A few things were learned today:

bend_around_time_400_clr_12158Back to work after the Christmas holidays was more painful than it feels it should be. A busy day with many systems issues made it worse, and the amount of people yawing.




stick_figure_load_boxes_400_clr_8380The good people of DPD managed to deliver to me 3 pyrex glass dishes all as expected with no damage in sight. The idea here is to start batch cooking again so I’ve got stuff for nights and then left overs to work. Part of the plan to economise and stop using the cash machine at work. You might ask so how much was the glassware? good news is less than one trip to the cash machine.




As return from work was reasonable and then went to Morrisons for odds and ends which was ok, I expected to make a pasta bake, but sadly due to a visit to the parents and then off to friends to exchange belated christmas gifts this didnt happen. No, the icecream didnt happen either, so it was 3 sticks of pineapple and 4 crackers as thats all that I did fancy when I got in.



water_bottle_400_clr_9138Also I learned today that I need to take a water bottle back to work, as I’ve been parched and needed a drink for large parts of the day. Even now still a little thirsty but I will fix that before I nod off.



I’ve just found this:

The European Food Safety Authority recommends that women should drink about 1.6 litres of fluid and men should drink about 2.0 litres of fluid per day. That’s about eight glasses of 200ml each for a woman, and 10 glasses of 200ml each for a man.

You can read more about water in this article from the NHS.

Enough of this as I am some what tired….. and its time to recharge those batteries….




So back to work then….

Where did I leave my checklist? Well I am not quite that anal about things but I’ve had to do some bits and pieces in advance.

email_envelope_400_clr_7126I’ve sent out a few emails, letting the new guys know the rough plan for the week. I’ve emailed the new people supporting the new guys so the know what the rough plan is too. I will however, have to drag oneself in early tomorrow to make sure that I’ve got some kind of workable schedule. I probably should have done that before now, but there is nothing really spoiling I dont think. One email to the boss too incase there is an issue, there might not be, but an FYI was justified I think.



There was a hair cut the other day, so that sharpened the top of my head but I’ve been dabbling away with experiments in facial hair, and it might stick with me for a little bit longer. The grey is coming in mind you so in due course that may well have to change! But its done.


Irunning_on_treadmill_400_clr_1968 was thinking about what to do with the gym as it is £34 a month, and to see what I can do to minimise that. There is somewhere more local and its £18 a month, so a switch could be on the cards. I might go and try a free session first to get it out of the way to see what it is like. Opens early in the morning and through to 9pm so its not too bad. I shall reflect a little first before I make the final decision.


lp_record_label_custom_16174I am on top of my bed as I write this (you didn’t need to know that really but it adds context!) and spotify is currently offering up : Radical Reinterpretations which is awesome, lots of good stuff played differently. I am listening to No One which i think is by the Keys lady played by the Vitamin string quartet.


Ands thats your lot I think, its bed time from me and an early start, so wish me luck.
