Your vote, your choice…

Well it’s been a rollercoaster of a ride, but where will it end?

Queuing to vote…

I would say its been a blast, but it hasn’t…. I would say its been honest, but it hasn’t…. I would say its been positive… but it hasnt….

Pretty sure you get the picture as the country heads into an election result, and certainly, as I write this, the forecast is way strong to one side than I expected.

My own guess was another hung parliament and lot’s more fighting… but if the forecast and exit polls are right, it then suggests an agenda, that doesn’t float my boat.

My yard stick as ever as was do your own research, make an informed decision, but vote. I followed my own guide, did research, checked where I sat and voted accordingly. I fear for the NHS, and my other half works there, and my parents certainly use it.

I also as part of my research read something that said from all the manifesto’s there was only one that would further increase child poverty over the next parliament. Whilst I’ve got no children, I can’t imagine a situation where I could support that…. Does this mean Brexit was infact bigger than real social issues and things that really hurt people.

Lot’s to think of, and I am not sure what tomorrow will bring.

Stay calm and carry on all…


First day back

So my holiday is now almost like a distance memory as I’ve had quite a lot to do, and the work keeps on coming. Sometimes it feels like we fabricate stuff for ourselves and that can be very counter productive. But, as needs must as we go off down a journey… and its not like its destination unknown.

Hope you enjoyed that musical interlude, even if it does indeed run contrary to my narrative. But hey ho, you cant win them all.

Tomorrow sees a return to midweek squash so that should be fun, just need to remember to pack my kit in the morning. Oh and get up early, and get to work early, just the usual stuff.

Have a good one.


It has been a while so there were updates, so many updates….

So word press is generally quite good, tells you about updates and just gets on with it. Occasionally stuff changes and moves, a quick google and away you go. Today it was PHP, that needed a change on the host side, which they helped point me in the right direction.

But a simpler thing, like getting it to tweet, nope , nada, zilch, zip…. unless this works then I……

It’s been a while

Something said inside, it’s time to put fingers on keyboard and write some stuff down… not sure what stuff but stuff…..

Indeed, I look back at older posts and I see that in many cases, life has moved on, but the troubles are still real and often still the same. That means or it suggests for some things, I never got to that root cause, or made a change to make things different.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results


But if it’s good enough for him, then maybe it’s good enough for me? Well may be not, if I am feeling compelled to write stuff down. So whats changed? A holiday , non-brexit, new job, so lots of stuff. Signed up to a gym to try to help out with the inevitable feeling slow and funky. I would add two sessions have really helped with my should, kneck and back which makes me annoyed as to why I am waited so long……

Next annoyance, is the grammer check underlining lots of my writing in red, I am going to ignore that.

A few days holiday probably have put me in a more reflective mood I guess which might have made me thing more about writing stuff down. Also I discover, that as my parents get older sometimes it makes me think more, so much to learn from them, so little time…. Add to that a I get older, and more stupid, needing a password manager is becoming more of an issue!

That’s a start isn’t it. Next time…

Read between the lines…

So yesterday, changes did happen, and I tried to amend some of the bad habbits. I went for a swim after work and put a bit of exercise through the body. The steam room was fun, if not for being obscenely warm.  But, it is a start none the less.

During the day, more water was had, and thats important as I suspect thats a big one, I’ve missed from being good. I also managed breakfast, the chrunchy nut cornflakes, in an attempt to cut the amount of breakfast crap.

Lunch is more of a challenge as not been ready to make and prep, so thats the next one. But with honesty in mind that’s next week at the earliest.

So, it feels a bit of a mixed bag and keeping the head above water, but its treading water. More foundation blocks to be bulit and deployed and then a step change.




It’s beginning to untangle!

Well the good news, is that some of my thoughts have started to untangle and I am beginning to make sense about some of the things,  I want to tackle. Now, it might feel like or sound like procrastination about “getting on with it” but if i’ve not worked it out, then any action is doomed to fail, as 1) you tackle an issue and not the root and 2) is it even the right issue.

I struggled with that last sentence and even the choice of words of problem v issue. Now, they are two distinctly seperate things as an issue may or may not be a problem. So I am going with issue for now.

May be dissatisfaction?

Anyway, work to do….

Catch you later


Pondering thoughts…

Hmmm, something have got to change, then becomes pondering thoughts, whilst you decide what or if to change. Now the decision is something has to ,

so thats easy then,  it gets more difficult to look for the what. I guess it depends on the scenario and what is going on, and indeed then what is the outcome!

And of course, that’s where I’ve come unstuck, I am usual ok at identifying an issue and then determining an plan of action as to what, when, where, who etc…. but I just can’t put a finger on it, or perhaps its locked away in a cupboard called denial. I’ve seen lots of old habits return and that’s disappointing if i am honest, and may be that’s what slowing me down.

Some more time, and idle thought is needed, as one thing I know is that I cant force it.
