Month: November 2022


Twice in one month….

Indeed, 2 posts in one month, I am indeed spoiling you. Or then again not. I’ve got a cold, a stinking cold with a cough and runny nose, the works. But fear not dear reader, that is assuming someone is reading the guff… I am indeed getting better.

Unlike Travis(?) who thought the drugs don’t work, and they make you work, generic cold and flu have been great at getting me through the worst of it, and drying out the tap that my nose did indeed become. A few days out of work, will have caused a back log, but I hope to get back to that tomorrow.

I did, during my time away, reply to a few messages or those that needed to be replied to. Out side of that, its been sleep, drink , eat, sleep etc. Rinse and repeat. But it has worked…. I think.

Tomorrow will be the test of that and having looked at my stock image, I was never quite that bad- honest!

Just need to be careful not to push it too hard, as still a bit wheezy when walking but that will get better. I also need to stay hydrated too, but thats good general advise.

From my last post, I’ve kept with it, and withdrawn from those, who are just being negative, and being honest, I do think I am better for it. So I shall keep that up. One more big decision to come on that front, and them I am done, but will need to set my own agenda, as i will need to replace what I loose. That sounds cryptic, I get, but in due course dear reader (again assuming someone is still reading this!)

It also should be noted, its almost that time of the year too and its crept up on us. I’ve done some shopping but some more to do, I will get there, sooner or later. I am sure…..

Oh and something for Benji too.


I’ve been irked for a while…

And it has taken too long for me to get around to writing some “stuff” down.

Me – November 2022

Indeed, its been a while and probably more than the usual 6 months when I feel the need to write stuff down. And even then, I’ve been lax at putting it down, but I’ve found a few minutes in my day to eventually do that.

I should add its not game over or nothing as bold or as bad as that, but I’ve been thinking. That’s always an odd thing to write, as we are always thinking, deciding, and doing. But I’ve made a decision, and it’s been brewing for a while, and it’s come to the for and front.

It relates to negativity.

There is so much of it in the world now, be it environment, financial, political, media – you name it and there is negativity. It’s bad, but thats not the point of what I am trying to write out now.

It’s for me, more about the personal negatively, or the things that which I can have influence or some control to be fair. I’ve felt, for a while now that some people can just be a little toxic, or something that effects the mood. Whilst undoubtfully some of it will be in jest or for “humour” and lot’s of it can be written off, but in fairness, it’s tiring and I don’t need.

As such, I’ve slowly withdrawn from some activities, and reduced exposure to some activities and some people as it’s apparent that its just not worth the effort. No matter what, its just not a good happy place.

So now, you are probably thinking what set this off? In honesty I don’t know but i suspect its been building for a while. I also suspect “the people” are unaware of their own behaviours and attitudes.

For me now, its lets not loose any sleep over this, and just move on with life. Control the things we controll, sweat the stuff worth sweating and not giving them the chance to continue to be as they are.

I tried to find a nice way to summarise it, and I found this below:
