Day 114 - Taking the time to hear
Wednesday, July 15, 2020      3 comments

Dad was right.  About The Team.  They were back today.  All in all it was a bit of a conflab. Data - I'm not suggesting you change anything you're doing Tiz but maybe filling in what you eat on Spark will help? The Number Cruncher - Ye... Read more
Day 113 - Murrrrrrrrddderrr!
Tuesday, July 14, 2020      6 comments

I loathe slugs.  With a vengeance.  It has to be said, I don't really do 'hate'.  Pointless emotion that wastes your energy.  Furthermore, while you're busy hating someone or something, they/it still have control of you.  But slugs.  Urgh.  I tr... Read more
Day 112 - Thanks Dad
Monday, July 13, 2020      5 comments

Weigh in day.  The Team were hovering as I stood in front of the scales with some trepidation.  Why trepidation?  Because I felt heavier last week.  And my tops seemed to be straining over my stomach.  But hey, I'd been trying.  I was definitely... Read more
Day 111 - Happy Birthday Nursey
Sunday, July 12, 2020      4 comments

Today is Nursey's birthday.  As you know, she is currently battling breast cancer and it's been something of a bumpy ride to date.  This past week she should have had her third session of chemo but her bloods weren't good so it's been delayed.  ... Read more
Day 110 - Yes, we have no bananas
Saturday, July 11, 2020      7 comments

I've given up on the banana skin taped to the callus at least for the moment.  Not necessarily because it doesn't work.  Tbh I don't know.  Initially it did seem to be softening the damn thing but the last few days there hasn't been much differe... Read more
Day 109 - The Murder Trial
Friday, July 10, 2020      6 comments

The Murder Trial Live is an 'event' that usually tours round the country.  It includes a meal, and a trial is enacted, at the end of which the audience decides the verdict.  Obviously, with the fizzy flu, these events haven't been able to take p... Read more
Day 108 - The Research Assistant
Thursday, July 09, 2020      5 comments

She's been busy today.  For that matter, so have Data, and The Number Cruncher.  It all started this morning when for some random reason I thought 'I could weigh myself, see how I'm doing this week'.  Why?  I weigh myself once a week on a Monday... Read more
Day 107 - Give her an inch
Wednesday, July 08, 2020      4 comments

And she takes a yard.  Cook I'm talking about.  I told her a couple of days ago there were a few bits of veg in the veggie draw that she could use up.  So I wander into the kitchen today where the extractor fan was on but nothing on the hob.  Pe... Read more
Day 106 - Reinventing the Wheel
Tuesday, July 07, 2020      5 comments

Before leaving 'home' I gave countless pairs of shoes to the charity shop.  A further whole box got left behind.  Yet still I have at least 50 pairs here [including boots] so I really shouldn't buy more.  The walking shoes excepted as they are f... Read more
Day 105 - Great Excitement
Monday, July 06, 2020      5 comments

At last the five mile travel limit has been lifted in Wales.  In terms of my usual daily life, that doesn't really make any difference to me.  The city centre, the bay, and so on are less than five miles from Base Camp.  Not that I have any desi... Read more
Day 104 - 72 Years
Sunday, July 05, 2020      6 comments

No, that's not how long you've been reading my blog, though I understand it might feel that way.  In fact I'm referring to the NHS which is 72 years old today.  It's a wonderful system.  I know in America health care can be extortionate.  So ima... Read more
Day 103 - Super Saturday
Saturday, July 04, 2020      5 comments

As I lay in bed last night, desperately trying not to be irritated by the fact I couldn't sleep [as usual], I found myself wondering what today's headlines would be.  You see certain businesses were allowed to open once again today including pub... Read more
Day 102 - Wild, wet, and windy
Friday, July 03, 2020      3 comments

That's about the only suitable way of describing the weather today.  Hmm, well, I guess I could have said 'Wimbledon Weather' but why that should be inflicted on us when Wimbledon was cancelled is beyond me.  Besides, this is Wales not England. ... Read more
Day 101 - It's all Greek to me
Thursday, July 02, 2020      4 comments

I'm not a TV person.  I know people swear blind they 'never watch TV' well, except for X, and Y, and oh we like blah,and blah, plus blah...........  So the list goes on.  Truly, that isn't me.  My TV broke down about five or so years ago.  The b... Read more
Day 100 - Reflections
Wednesday, July 01, 2020      3 comments

OK so somewhere I muddled up my days.  Buggered if I'm going back through a hundred days of posts to find out where.  Politicians and The Media were referring to yesterday being the 100th day.  That's because they were counting the evening of 23... Read more
