The excrement over last week’s celebrations of the 250th blog has passed. It’s time to look towards the future! At the start of the week I did a lot of thinking about this while listening to podcasts and watching boxsets because I was unwell. If you have been reading this shiz for a while you will know I have been back in the UK 3yrs, and no matter how hard I save or plan I can’t escape London! This week while at home, one idea that I have had for a while kept coming back to the front of my mind.

Screenshot_20190309-190607_Gallery“This really is how i felt and looked earlier this week”.

Europe is constantly in the news at the moment in the UK (I won’t mention the dreaded “B” word here). So, the last place you would expect me to want to explore is the continent that I have lived in for most of my life, a place that so many people here want to leave (don’t worry I don’t judge, I’m a hippy at heart and love everyone). Looking at a map I have planned a route from London to the Mediterranean through France and Spain, so I can meet family in Ibiza for the planned holiday in July. The idea is to ravel as cheaply as possible, hitchhike, even walk! Written down and reading this back, the idea is mad! I am 50 and out of shape!

20190412_075919 20190412_075553“Its been chilly, but spring is coming”.

This is not a new idea, but while sitting at home feeling sorry for myself I realised that I must get off my lardy arse and do something. Don’t misunderstand me. I really appreciate how lucky I am to have been born in the UK, especially when I think of all the people who are desperate to live here and have the same opportunities. But for me, I really need to travel, and get away. Considering that travel in Europe (at the moment for UK residents) is simple, I shamefully have only been to a couple of capital cities. I am no expert in what is going on politically, but with possible future restrictions about travelling around the EU freely, I feel the need to explore now!

20190412_205715“A real American celebrity tweeted me”.

I am saving, but I can’t raise enough to get back to Africa, so Europe is the next logical location. Don’t worry you will be kept informed as to what happens. Maybe this is the ingredient that this shameful ramble I call a blog needs to make it interesting. Also, as I mentioned before this was originally started so that my nephews and niece might one day read about their mad aunties adventures. This possible future trip would be a lot more interesting to read than another bloody boring story about travelling on the tube (damn nearly got away without mentioning the “T” for a week. Bugger!)
By the way, I’m feeling better. If you were concerned!

And Now For Something Completely Different……

20190411_213755“Hamster picture of the Week”.

I am always late to the tech party. For example, I am the women that didn’t have a CD player until the early 90s! And bought her first computer in 2001! Therefore, you wouldn’t be surprised to hear that it’s only now that I have a smart speaker (I won’t name the brand, they don’t need the publicity). Why would I need one? That has been my attitude because I have other electronic devices. After unboxing my own this week and using it I realise that I had been living life as a Luddite.

20190411_104335“Little treats at work, help me through the day”.

So far all I have done is ask questions, that I know the answers too! And play obscure music such as “Nena, 99 Red Balloons” from 1984. Every time I asked for the track, my friend who has far better taste would veto the decision. Once I had the room to myself, I requested the song (am I the only person who remembers watching “Top of the Pops” and being transfixed by her under arm hair. Yes just me, then!). This all ended when the song suddenly changed to a male voice crooning a Ballard. All I could do was rush into the hallway to tell my friend that I had been hacked! I stopped in my tracks as there she was in the dark illuminated by her phone grinning like a supervillain. The hacker had been found! The main question that still needs answering, why pick “Engelbart Humperdinck”? Since that incident I have played a lot dodgy indie and (whispering) “Nena” in English and the original German (99 Luftballons) several times! But only when I am on my own, it’s her house and I don’t want to be thrown out. That’s not something that this small amazing piece of tech could help with, or could it?

And Finally……
Spoke to a nice man with the same name as a very famous BBC weather man (while growing up). I was tempted to ask if friends blamed him for the 1987 hurricane. I didn’t!

And now for Grannies list of entertainment over the last week, badly written on the back of a used betting slip (you need to read last weeks to understand this).

Week 250, Saturday 30th March until Friday 5th April 2019.

Misfits Mid-Life Crisis Adventures in East & West London and Surrey (The NEXT Chapter).

Week 250 Saturday 30th March until Friday 5thApril 2019.

IMG_5830

Two Hundred and Fifty weeks ago I started this shiz!  Originally the main purpose was that in the future my nephews and niece would read about their mad auntie’s adventures in Tofo Mozambique.  However, for the last three years it’s more a ramble about life stuck in London!  I see this as a weekly time capsule!  Every 50 weeks (or so) I like to make an effort.  This week is your behind the scenes look at how this NON-award-winning blog that struggles weekly for views is created.

20190331_135506 20190331_135534 “My fave kind of cinema, is an empty one”.

The process starts on a Saturday morning in the writer’s room in South London above a chippy (which is closed regularly by the local council health and safety department).  The hopeful writers meet to pitch ideas for the following Friday.  The overall editor listens and reject each idea by belittling everyone in turn, pointing out why their story wouldn’t even appear in a free local newspaper which ends up as cat litter liner.  After the meeting it’s normal to see a once confident writer crossing the road aimlessly or standing on the edge of the roof only to have to be persuaded down by the emergency services.  The editor usually asks the writers they like or are currently sleeping with to submit a first draft.

20190404_210951 “Hamster picture of the week”.

This is when the art department get involved.  The art editor is sent the story ideas, from this they decided which pictures will be needed for each section.  Photographers who are quick, don’t ask questions, and more importantly don’t snore ruining the art editors sleep will be asked to work on the project!

20190404_080324 “A good film after Brekkie.  Anoodle is being taught well”. 

Over the years the art team has gathered a small, reliable stable of out of work actors that appear as regular characters.  Casting calls are made finding who is available.  Of course, a weekly blog is always looking for fresh faces; it’s not uncommon for a scout to return with a black eye because they approached a stranger asking if they have “ever modelled”.  The regular locations are checked to see if they can be used.  While other properties are spied on to see if they might be suitable.  The team have become very stealthy in evading CCTV, security patrols, dogs and other methods of keeping strangers out!  On the day of the photo session the talent arrives early as everything must be done quickly, make up and wardrobe are usually completed in the back of a windowless van illegally parked.  In fact, one wall of the editor’s office has years’ worth of parking tickets and summons pinned up with pride!  Talking of money how does a blog like this fund itself?  It’s very simple!  All companies shown in the pictures pay in used non-concentric numbered notes in a variety of currencies.  This is collected by a team of very “helpful” ex-bouncers who are extremely good at convincing people to pay!  Without leaving a mess!

20190331_174636 20190331_164234 “No wonder my mum says to grow up!”.

By Tuesday the editor will have drafts of the ” A story”, “B storyline” and the “And Finally” sections.  The editor during the day will cross everything out with a child’s red crayon, before throwing the tatty pieces of paper back at the writers.  The pictures arrive on Wednesday, this is when both editors meet and lock horns, which usually ends in an argument as they continually remind each other of past glories when they worked for national newspapers and broadcasters.  How have their lives lead to this, a pointless blog!

20190401_190624 “Evening all”.

Thursday nothing happens except for an excess of headache pills and pushing the writers on to their side of the bed!  Because the boss is away, this allows others to apply for paid work or report the chippy downstairs for continual health and safety violations.  Friday is when everything falls into place.  Due to the editor not liking anything written during the week, they are locked in their office (the bolt is on the outside) to spend the day writing.  This is why the pictures rarely match the text!  Finally, the TV, Film, Radio and Podcast lists arrive written on the back of a used betting slip compiled by editor’s grandmother (it gives her something to do between races).  At 10pm everything is ready on a flash drive and handed to a young man known as “Bob” who sits in a well-known coffee shop using the free Wi-Fi to publish the blog for the world to read.

20190401_093949 “Peter Rabbit 2, crew filming at Richmond station.  I wish i could have given someone a script of mine”.

Or, is the reality a lot more boring!  Maybe it is just a large lardy, old slightly bitter, lonely hag bashing away at the keyboard with her sausage fingers.  Hoping that someone somewhere will read this!  And more importantly her nephews and niece will one day understand why this! Or that happened!

20190405_093153 “A nice view each morning and evening”.

Thank you for reading this 250th blog.  If you like it please share, and spread the word.  If you don’t then the smiley group of ex-bouncers will be sent round.  Don’t worry they won’t make a mess!

20190328_174031 “The 1980s all over again”.

And Finally……      

On 1st April I spoke to a lady just after midday.  I joked to her that if she had rung a few minutes earlier I could have claimed that the problem had been an “April Fool”!  Luckily, she found this funny.

“Relaxing in the sticks”.

Last weekend I relaxed and recharged my batteries in the countryside at my mum and sisters house. However, all the positive energy drained away as soon as I arrived at Euston station, when I discovered that my plastic top up Oyster card was missing. Everything in my bag got pulled out for all the passing well organised passengers to see as they alighted. All the usual rubbish was there, but the small plastic card I really needed couldn’t be seen. The last time it was used was the previous Friday at the very same station, so it could be anywhere. Even as I write this there is a little part of me hoping that it will be found at mums under the sofa or in a corner of the living room playing the greatest game of hide and seek ever. Be careful people! Those plastic wallets are crafty, keep an eye on them!

20190324_131512 20190324_131255

“One day i’ll take a trip on the canal”.

Over the last few years there has been a lot in the news about how tube station ticket offices are closing, because you can buy tickets from an army of machines. This has resulted in more staff at the ticket gates or on platforms. Whatever the pros and cons of this decision, it is not for me to say. One thing I do now know, is how difficult it is to buy a new Oyster card in the centre of town early evening on a Sunday. Walking around I discovered that at Euston, St Pancras (the travel centre was closed) and Kings Cross there doesn’t appear to be a facility to buy a new Oyster card. I even tried good old reliable W.H Smiths in each of the stations and was told with a smile that they didn’t sell them. When I don’t want a newsagent, they seem to be on every street corner. Try finding one when you really need it! Maybe the newsagents are in league with the plastic wallets and are taking part in the game of hide and seek. An hour after arriving back in the big smoke I found somewhere to buy a new pass, i was finally on the last leg home.

20190324_114048 20190323_105103

“Can you smell the countryside”.

This got me thinking. As a Londoner if I i had this much trouble buying a pass what must it be like for a visitor! No wonder they have put extra staff on the ticket gates if they are constantly telling people that they need to go back up to street level to buy one. Local stations that still have an office which used to sell tickets might issue them, I don’t know! The first problem would be getting the persons attention through the extra thick slightly tinted glass. After that, they would need to be persuaded to put down there phone as they like pictures of friend’s meals and laugh at videos of babies or old people falling over. In May, I have a Canadian friend visiting the capital. I think I’ll get her Oyster card in advance so that she doesn’t have the problems I had. This is her first visit to London; I don’t want to put her off straight away.

20190323_183221 20190324_122359

“Trifle and pub grub”.

What happened to the pass at the time of writing is still a mystery. For once in my life I can say that I didn’t do anything stupid with the wallet. If it’s not playing hide and seek, then maybe it fell through a rip in the space/time continuum at mums, she does live in the sticks after all! If this is the case I hope it found a nicer reality with other plastic travel pass holders. It can’t be fun being stuffed in to a sweaty pocket or a packed dark bag.

“Sprung is coming”.

I asked a colleague if he “wanted to see my hamster”. After a slight pause I hurriedly handed him my phone, so he could see how cute the adopted hamster was. I only did this as he mentioned a hamster and thought he might be interested. He wasn’t!

“Cute Hammy pic of the week”.

One morning this week a man and his pug sat next to me on the tube. The musty breath and slight vibrating purring I think we’re coming from the pug. These days I have learned never assume.

Week 248, Saturday 16th until Friday 22nd March 2019.

Misfits Mid-Life Crisis Adventures in East, North East & West London, Surrey and Northamptonshire (The NEXT Chapter).

Week 248 Saturday 16th until Friday 22nd March 2019.

IMG_5830

I read somewhere that we live our lives to an internal rhythm.  Monday to Friday the natural rhythm I follow make’s this large meat sack of a body presentable to the world.  Normally the first thing I hear when I become conscious is the radio (I sleep with an ear bud shoved into the side of my head).  Then the natural rhythm, routine automatically starts.  I could probably do everything blindfolded guided by this rhythm, including picking clothes that fit and suit me better than I do currently with my eyes open!

20190317_180429 FB_IMG_1552854859982 “Its hard work, Ariel Yoga”.

Earlier this week I woke up, the rhythm commenced, everything was normal.  At the train station a tube arrived straight away with seats available, which rarely happens!  Once settled after a couple of stations I accidentally touched the tablet screen which revealed the time.  If this had been a cartoon my eyes would have bulged, shot out of my head dangling on the ends of their optic nerves in a panic.  The time was 7.00 am!  It should have said 8.00 am!  I looked at my phone; my electronic devices appeared to be ganging up on me.  The clocks don’t change for a couple of weeks I thought!  I was confused!  My internal DJ suddenly changed the speed of the rhythm inside my mind speeding it up far too fast.

20190317_155256 “You looking at me?”…

If anyone had looked up from what they were doing they would have observed a lardy woman wearing mismatched clothes looking very worried.  At the time I woke up I could have sworn that my phone read the time expected, in fact it was a couple of minutes before the annoying alarm was due to sound.  The station clock notified me that I was bang on time, or so I thought!  It was only then I suddenly remembered hearing in my ear just before I fell unconscious the night before, that the radio show I normally wake up to was to start at 6.00 am! A hour earlier than normal.  I felt robbed of those precious 3600 precious seconds that I could have spent in bed.  Once I arrived at my location I headed straight to the coffee shop and slumped in a corner attempting to focus on the tablet.  In fact, I was almost late for work due to relaxing for longer than normal.  Maybe my young nephews and niece need to tech me how to read a bloody clock.  The DJ in my mind has returned to playing the rhythm i lead my life to at the correct speed.  Everything is back to normal, whatever normal is!

20190321_215503 “Let us prey!”.

And Now For Something Completely Different……

20190318_172425 “Always space for a moon shot”.

Last Friday evening it was Comic Relief, a charity I have supported since it started in 1985.  Over the years I have bought comedy records (such as the first single Living Doll by “The Young Ones and Cliff”) mugs, t-shirts, bags and of course red noses.  Hiding amongst my storage is a box of noses going all the way back to the when they were simple molded plastic which pinched the skin when worn.  Over the years they have become larger and more elaborate (I have a gold one which I collected from Radio One’s reception, for a small donation).

The last couple of years the noses have been made of foam and bought in a small box.  This year there were 9 to collect!  With an additional 2, a rare (1 in 840 chances) and ultra-rare (1 in 8400 chance) ones to find.  The day after the TV extravaganza when they announced that the total raised was £63,548,668.  I was in a supermarket and saw boxes of unsold noses and wondered what happens to them.  Are they recycled (do they biodegrade?) or is there an army of volunteers open them to find the special ones.  My friend who I live must be pleased I don’t have any spare cash; she really wouldn’t want to come home and find her living room full of empty boxes and a mountain of foam noses as I try to find a special one (which probably wouldn’t be worth much in the future. Like the rest of my storage!).  But that mountain would raise a lot for charity.

Talking of rising money, years ago people sat in a bath of beans.  I would update this by being sponsored to sit in a bath of “Curry Pot Noodles”!  What a tasty way to raise money for a good course.  If anyone wants to sponsor me, please send your donations to…

 Happy 4th bday this week to the little lion boy.

53439722_2112040788914939_2446411713944223744_n

Three years ago this week I returned from Mozambique, convinced I would return that summer or at least by the start of winter.  But here I am in London working in a call centre! Personally, I feel trapped and worry that I will never escape!  The date of leaving has continually been pushed back, family and close friends must be fed up with me going on and on about how I will return to that beautiful paradise beside the Indian ocean.

20190312_195028 “Going home, the sky looked pretty”.

I have been saving, but everyday life continually gets in the way, paying bills, exonerate travel prices which never go down!  Short periods of unemployed of course didn’t help. When I do spend a few pounds on myself, I feel guilty because every penny spent pushes the leave date back further.  The need for more money has made me consider other forms of employment such as, working in porn, becoming a sex worker or dealing drugs!  The problem is I have no qualifications in any of those fields, and I am pretty sure (though I have not checked) that the local adult college won’t offer courses in those subjects.  Surely anything is better than a call centre!

20190315_174630 “Doing my bit for Comic Relief”.

Not a week goes by without me thinking of Tofo.  Liquid Dive Adventures and my friends that work there!  The lovely Jenny and her amazing cheesecakes!  Thomas who sells mobile phone airtime and drives the local taxi!  Walking through the market carrying a hot plate of Matapa!  Beautiful beaches!  Power and water cuts!  Waving my mozzie zapper around!  Diving in the Indian Ocean!  Jelly fish blooms in November!  Humpbacks and calves breaching the waves!  Launching the boat in a rough sea!  And of course lots of smiling locals!  Rereading this makes me feel hopeless and tearful.

20190315_171015 “Croc’s never look good.  What was this person thinking of”.

When I was in Tofo I lived a basic, but happier life.  Internet and the ability to download shiz is important, but otherwise I am happier without all the trappings that I take for granted in London every day.  My heart is in Tofo, but if I can’t get back there maybe there is another location I can go.  Unfortunately, due to a certain UK referendum in 2016 any ideas of going to live in Europe appear to be scuppered.  I don’t want this to sound like a tail of woo, I am trying to remain positive and when needed I think about Mozambique and all the wonderful things, people and places I saw.  And hopefully I will see them again with my own eyes one day.

20190314_223518 “Cute Hamster pic of the Week”.

Even I am getting fed up of my moaning and wish I would shut up.  Dear family and close friends (they know who they are) please accept this as a public apology for the last three years of constantly repeating myself like a broken record!

And Now For Something Completely Different……

20190311_000156 The little lion boy, has got  little older”.

One of my earliest memories is using mums Tupperware and my tricycle as a drum kit when I was probably 3 or 4.  I mention this as last weekend my youngest nephews became four.  In years to come I hope he remembers how his old lardy aunty ran around the house hiding with him from “very bad people”.  Playing with his airport made of small plastic bricks and pretending to ring the baggage handlers about the small orange plastic brick suitcase he was obsessed it!

20190310_235901 “A two cake family”.

I would also remind him how in the space of ten minutes he said that aunty MOZ (a couple of hours before he was hugging her asking if there were more prezzies) and then his brother had ruined everything!  They hadn’t of course!  And how he took the cake he was eating out of his mouth and tried to put it back on the plate with the rest of the cake.  There is a certain logic there that I understand!

20190310_211928 “Now you see me!”.

I will always remember that day because a one hour car journey took over three and half hours.  A combination of high winds closing roads (especially the QEII bridge) and a number of accidents which meant we travelled at a snail’s pace.  MOZ will remember the journey because every time the wind side swiped the car, I let out a scared Yelp.  It really was a day to remember for many reasons.

20190310_235236 “Now you dont!”.

And Finally……

20190314_182814 “A huge queue, not a problem for someone on the guest list”.

I received an invite to the recording of a BBC radio show with Ruby Wax at the Museum of comedy, only to find I was on the guest list.  It was really interesting listening to Ruby who was sat a couple of metres away (I was in the front row) speaking very personally about her own mental health history.  Her studies about the Brain, the books that she has written and setting up of Frazzled Cafes (I have been attending the Stratford one since last September. For further info go to frazzledcafe.org it helps me).

20190314_185430 “Picture Ruby in that seat, that’s how close she was”.

Highlight was meeting Ruby at the end, having a chat and getting a hug.

Week 246 Saturday 2th until Friday 8th March 2019.

Picture the scene. You have had a long day working in a call centre. Travelling home all you want to do is watch dead people being killed in imaginative ways that the writers of the hit American TV series “The Walking Dead” have thought up. But there’s a problem! The empty seat next to you suddenly becomes occupied by a very small child. A wriggling little girl who keeps kicking your leg and occasionally standing up to shout at mum a few seats away. When the hobbit sized person is seated (still kicking you) they are trying to see what is on your tablets screen.

20190306_140747

20190306_132437

“Tea and pretty food in Central London”.

The above scenario happened this week. On the way home all I wanted to do was veg out on fantasy violence, when the child appeared. Sometimes if I am in a strange mood watching something particularly gory and can see in the reflection of the screen that the person next to me is looking. I will deliberately angle the screen so that they can view hoping that they might be horrified and look away. Deep down I think I get a kick out of the possibility of shocking. But I don’t want to upset a child, I am not that twisted, honest!

20190307_194104

“Yes the bread was green. Marvin the French waiter was a little embarrassed by the colour.

If the kid had seen something and it had upset her, who would have been responsible? Would it have been me, after all I’m the one watching the programme. Or would it have been the parent who spent the journey on her phone speaking very loudly so the whole carriage could hear her private tale of woo! Only shouting to the child to stop doing something they were already in the middle of, which of course they ignored. Personally, I think that the parent should have had the girl on their knee and conducted their phone call once there off the train, but who am I to tell someone else what to do. Of course, I would have felt terrible if the child had become upset at seeing something that they shouldn’t on my tablet. But it would not have been my fault. The way society is going there will come a day when in circumstances such as the above, a person would have to change what there watching so that it doesn’t offend! Everyone better download progs suitable for all ages.

“Training the next generation of Bowling stars”.

Happily, the girl didn’t see the dead getting axed or shot in the head. At my station it was difficult to get off because I had to climb over a mountain of bags while the mother continued with her telephone call. The look she gave me as I passed screamed “can’t you see I’m on the phone, why should I help you and move a bag”. Of course, I didn’t say anything, why bother when i can moan here to you. Unless you disagree with me, then let me know at,

By the way the adopted Hamster enjoys watching The Walking Dead and never gets upset if a “walker” is axed or shot. And she is only 8 months old.

And Now For Something Completely Different……

Recently I constructed a metal flat pack cabinet and a complicated a Lego model, both had been started by others but never completed. Something I have always found easy is spatial thinking, the ability to visualise an object and move it around in my mind. Please don’t think I am trying to claim I have a talent, I am just a creative twat who loves to draw and is able to view things that way. I find it helps when constructing something, or it usually does!

20190303_102607

“This was completed by 3, count them 3 adults”.

Last weekend my nephew got a toy which was a cheap knock off a well-known brand. It took three adults including myself to build this. At one point I was thinking of cheating with Sellotape to bodge the job until the clever Aunty MOZ worked something out. Credit must also go to Aunty Helen for all her help in the construction.

20190302_124620

“Trying a new look. Grandma looks impressed”.

The question of the week is. How many adults does it take to build one child’s cheap plastic toy? Answers on a postcard taped around a gold brick with a slice of lemon stuck on the front. Please throw it through the living room window of Number 10 Downing St, London by 9am last Wednesday.
Thank you.

“His and Hers fashions seen on the train this week”.

Monday morning the temp in London was below 10c. The spring “like” weather of the week before had ended. But I spotted several people wearing shorts on the tube.

It is my pleasure to announce the winner and the loser of the inaugural, “It’s not really shorts weather, but wear them to work anyway” awards.

First the loser. A very tall thin man with legs hairier than a Wookie. Not what I wanted to see before 8am!

And now the winner. A woman wearing what looked like little leather shorts. On her left thigh under her tights I could just make out a tattoo, which was either a multi-tiered cake or a chandelier. Of course, I didn’t spend the journey trying to see exactly what the tatt was!!
Congratulations to the Winner and commiseration to the loser.

Misfits Mid-Life Crisis Adventures in East and West London & Surrey (The NEXT Chapter).

Week 245 Saturday 23rd February until Friday 1st March 2019.

img-1460649577030-v

I love sleep; it’s one of my fave activities. Normally I try to be in bed by 10 or 11 so I can watch something before turning in.  Most people are completely knackered, every morning I see so many commuter’s snoozing on the train.  That’s not something I am comfortable doing because I really don’t want to wake up resting on the shoulder of the person next to me, and then wipe all my dribble off their clothes!  Plus, I am told (by my niece and nephews) that I snore badly!  Some mornings I can make a 20 minute TV comedy last 30 to 40 minutes, because I have to keep going over the same scene again and again due to sleep wanting to overcome me.

20190228_235817.jpg 20190228_235932.jpg “I wont ever argue again.  Ok, i snore”.

Last Sunday night the adopted hamster didn’t come out until late in the evening.  Before anyone sends me a postcard wrapped around a gold brick through the living room window, I realise that Hammy’s are nocturnal!  Most evenings she loves to run up and down my arms, sit in my palm and occasionally give me a “Hamster blessing” by pooing or weeing in my hand.  I am deffo her biatch!  When we adopted her, we were instructed that wouldn’t want contact.  Everything that we were told was wrong, she loves to be around us.

20190225_224829 “The little girl and me enjoying new Alan Partridge”.

Back to the story!  The little darling spent the evening asleep in a large tube which is situated in a big plastic storage crate with sawdust, toys and other things she can burrow and hide inside.  Only occasionally popping her face out to see if we had left any treats.  It was just past my bedtime typically that she wanted to play; if I went to sleep I would feel bad because she wouldn’t get as much contact as normal.  By the time my head did hit the pillow it was well after midnight.  When I set the alarm it enthusiastically informed me that it would wake me up in exactly 7hrs time.  That’s the same amount of time spent sat at my desk!  Regularly I hear and read about a healthy work/life balance, I definitely don’t have one.  There is no scientific basis to my next comment, but I am going to type it.  Why does a night’s sleep pass so quickly (this includes going to sleep early) and I still wake up feeling as just as knackered as I did before?  When a working day of usually 7hrs shackled to the desk passes so slowly. It really should be the other way around!

20190228_210228 “If she could talk, i think shes complaining about the noise being made in the living room.  She was trying to sleep”.

I realise that only a very small percentage of people enjoy what they do.  Only I can change my life, which I know is a constant theme regularly in this ramble.  The Hamster is a start and makes my life more relaxing.  Looking after and playing with this tiny creature really makes my heart gush with love and gives me a reason to continue.  However more importantly is a good night’s sleep, even I know this is essential for good mental health.  If I have to go to bed early resulting in the Hamster not getting as much play, I’ll make it up to her another evening.

20190227_171306 “It was a genuine error, the train was packed!.  I didn’t realise i had upgraded myself”.

‘The dark raincloud hanging over me is my lack of work/life balance.  When I think back 3yrs, I was happy in Tofo Mozambique, commuting to and from work walking on the beach, visiting the market for fresh fruit and of course diving in the Indian Ocean.  If I am ever going to return and feel good about myself I must make changes now.  Though I suspect the Hamster will have to stay, but I could Skype with her.  Seriously the things that need to be worked on and changed immediately are changing my job, travelling less to and from work and of course getting lots of sleep. Oh, and plenty of rodent love.

In a major department store (Yes, there are a few still around) mooching round the electronic section.  A teenage girl and an older woman stopped and stood next to me.  I heard the girl say, “I really need a panini maker”.  The older women just walked away without saying anything, leaving the teenager to look at objects she desired but couldn’t afford. #firstworldproblems

A little later.

Queuing up in another part of the same shop waiting to pay.  As a couple of women walked passed I heard one giggle to her friend “that’s the first time in a long while a young man has handled my knickers”.  They had just purchased new ones and the cashier was a young man.  I wonder what the man would have said if he had heard that comment.
