its been a while and fingers to the keyboard…

Looking at some of the posts, sometimes there is a long gap other times, a short gap, sometimes even and absence. And truth be told, I use the blog to clear my head, vent, dump out ideas, or just to think.

Here and now, head is a bit swimming about the place, but thats more to do with everything going on. I am having a busy week which is kind of unusual as it ticks overs, but a deadline looms etc etc

But in fairness i work better to deadlines and when things need to get done so thats not all bad in fairness. Its just come at a time, when as ever a cold has struck which slows me down. Thats possibly the most annoying part of it.

I guess as ever, also annoying is that I’ve been ok for ages, but then when pay for the next set of gym outings thats when the cold hits, enough to slow me down which is not fun as it does cost £99 quid for 6 weeks, and of course holiday to Spain will eat one of those weeks up.

Which then leads is nicely into the gym sessions… so of late bar some shocking attendances int he last program, I’ve consistently gone for 3 or 4 sessions to work through some of the many issues I’ve got. But, over time the purpose changed. for example, going to gym and working hard, allowed bad habits in food and drink to continue which isn’t the plan.

This then leads us on to the next part, which is that, as it stands now, or sits now ;-p I am about as big as I’ve ever been and that to be fair needs to stop before it becomes too unhealthy. So back on it with a vengeance.  An example, myfitnesspal counts the calories and today is less than 1200 in vs a target for 1kg a week and with exercise allowance leaves me 1400 to play with. The biggest non-suprise in this, I don’t feel hungry. my body is not concerned. This dear reader gvies an indication to the level over eating. And, thinking out loud, there was a foul today, no lunch time walk as work load got in the way.

Walking1000miles.com still shows my progress, and to be fair, am there or there abouts which doesn’t surprise me. Eva is kicking ass and well played to her in all fairness. But nice weather, feeling better, more energy, I will be back on it.

 

Next up, the boiler has decided its finally had enough. Whenever its been iffy and I’ve rang a plumber and gone ” I’ve got an ideal Isar” they reply with either ” and the control board has gone” or “oh dear” which gives an indication about how poor its been. To be fair it was fitted to the property when i moved in so i cant overally object. A replacement is needed along with some new pipes for gas… so if you’ve got a spare 2k floating around…please….

please….

As ever, bank of dad may be needed for this one.

And perhaps enough writing for now, but coming up is a holiday and perhaps its nice to have a rest. Here’s hoping its a nice as it looks online, but you never know… and hopefully the 5 or so hours to get there are not as bad as it can be. 5 hours is about when i start to get a little fed up and bad tempered. But what you gonna do? its just a means to an end and then a nice pool, some sunshine and tan through shorts will all be that I need.

Enough from me for now.

 

Cheers

Steve

And the weekend is over…

ambulance_front_400_wht_17356Wow its been a tough one. The weekend started ok, some exercise and out for a victory meal. A trip to a random turkish meal was a great idea and some really tasty food. The plan was a few drinks afterwards, but unfortunately, a small hiccup. I got a call to say my mother was unwell but nothing to worry about the usual parental call. But as time went by I got a few more, so after 2 pints headed home to see what was going on.

It appears that been unwell for a couple of days, (mistake one, despite calling them nothing mentioned!) and had gotten progressively worse. From this by the time i got there, a level of confusion and an inability to make decisions was apparent. Having sought advice from 111 AE was the plan, and we cancelled the ambulance that was arranged an we were to go on our own. Fun(!) started here as the inability to make a decision casued problems as “there is nothing wrong” and “I am not going” was the call of the day.

At an opportune moment, a toilet break, I will be honest, I picked her up and bundled her into the car. A few choice words and an offer of kicking me was the reward. Long story short now, 6 hours in A&E lead to an admission and an overnight stay.

As it stands now, getting better with the right drugs, so hopefully things will get better. I need to sleep.
