The Heavens open!
The heavens have finally opened, and while everyone is complaining about the rain, I’m welcoming it with open arms! I don’t know why people complain, they hate it when it’s too hot, and now they hate it because it’s raining, you can’t win with some people! I recently overheard a conversation between a group of people and they were moaning about hot it’s been, one of them said ‘it’s going to be 20c tonight, it isn’t good at all! I like it when it’s in the middle.’ What do you class as in the middle? Dry? Wet? Bit of a Breeze? I will say it again, but you can’t win with some people!
Anyhow, with this weather keeping me confined to my bedroom for the day, myself and K have decided to start working on a schedule that will help me to become more productive. We decided to do this after I hinted several times that K should be my receptionist, I know it may seem like a cheeky thing to ask, but she has always done what’s right for me, and I couldn’t think of anyone better. So, I’m hoping this new schedule will help me to be more productive and it should help me to have more time to rest, and at least this won’t give me an excuse to forget. As I’ve always said to K, you’re only as good as the woman who leads you, and since K is my best friend I couldn’t ask for anyone better than her to lead me to success.
I won’t be doing much else today, reading and writing is the highlight of my day. The one thing I need to do is to have a shave, I’m starting to look like a goat with an overgrown beard. This is partly my fault, when I moved to my sisters, I somehow misplaced my electric shaver, but due to a busy time and infections, I’ve been unable to locate the shaver, which means that I’ve had to settle for cheap razors that will probably cut my neck to pieces! So, if I don’t post tomorrow’s blog, you will know that I’ve had a fight with a razor blade and it won!
Could you imagine having a fight with a razor blade? The razor would be like ‘I am going to cut you up! If you come any closer then you’re going to regret it!’ Okay there’s that imagination going in overdrive again! I find it hilarious how my imagination goes off on one, and it always seems to get worse once I’ve had my strong painkillers. I guess my drugs are like wine, they go straight to my head, and as we all know I’ve only got a peanut for a brain so it takes its toll on me!
Anyway, on that note, I’m buggering off to have a rest. Looks like I get an extra thirty minutes because I have time left over from my scheduled allowance for writing the blog. So, until the next blog, stay safe and take care.
31 July: Wednesday
Forgot The Sugar!
Well, what a day it’s been! I woke up with no pain (thank goodness) and I felt delightfully chipper, don’t know why this was, but maybe the medication has had a direct affect on how I am feeling today. I started my day like any other, walk through to the kitchen and make a cup of tea. I’m surprised that I am able to do this each morning because my eyes are covered in a layer of sleep, which causes my vision to become impaired.
The first task of my day was to visit the bank, obviously because I moved I needed to change the address or else some transactions won’t go through. Anyhow, after I completed that task, I headed over to Tesco to pick up some shopping. I needed to buy some sugar, but as you read on you will see that this didn’t go to plan. As I walked into Tesco’s, the first thing that caught my eye were the books, and since I’m addicted to buying new books, I couldn’t resist taking a quick look. Now as you can guess this quick look turned into a long look, and it also resulted in buying six new books. I can’t help, reading books is something I love to do, and even if it takes me awhile, I’ll still get round to reading them. I wonder if there’s some rehab class for buying too many books? That would certainly be a funny thing to attend, ‘I’m Marc and I’m addicted to buying books.’
So, with this shopping in hand, I walked home thinking I brought everything I went there for. As I started to make a cup of tea, I went to grab the sugar pot, and it was only then that I realized I had forgotten to buy some sugar. I won’t repeat what I said, but it went a bit like this ‘for fudge sake …’ Anyhow, I quickly drank my tea and headed back out the door again to Tesco’s. How stupid am I? I had to walk all the way there and back again, and even though it’s a short distance, it completely tired me out. Next time I go shopping, I am going to make a list of things I need to buy because it will save me from doing all that walking.
Anyhow, I don’t think I’ve got much planned for the rest of the day. I know I have a lovely dinner for later, so I guess that’s something good to look forward to. The chances are I’ll sit and read for the rest of the day or talk away on Twitter.
So, I guess it’s that time again, time to sign off and cause trouble somewhere else. You never know, I might get arrested or something and that will add some fun to the next blog. Until the next blog, take care and stay safe!
