HungryHouse — Your best way for Takeaway

Published by:

HungryHouse, your best way for takeaway. 

I’ve been using this service for many months now and I have nothing, but good things to say about them. 

Before I discovered HungryHouse I was using a service called JustEat, but this wasn’t to last very long because I had a bout of food poisoning from the Chinese takeaway I ordered from. Yes, this could have happen with any takeaway service, but I felt dissatisfied that they had a poor quality takeaway on their database. 

When ordering from HungryHouse I have always received top quality food and superb customer service. There has been a small amount of times where I’ve had issues (very small), but HungryHouse have always come through for me. 

HungryHouse also love their customers, they always love to talk and find out about the people they serve. I have found myself many times in conversation with them, them, not just about their service, but on a personal level too. I find it loving that they go out their way to message me to see how I am and to ask about current projects I have going on. 

Now, I must clear up something. Some people make out that HungryHouse is the provider of your food—if they could they would—but they are just a takeaway directory that try to give you access to quality takeaways in your area. But, I must defend them because they do try to provide top quality all the time. 

So, enough of my ramblings. What are you waiting for? Head over to HungryHouse to order your takeaway today. On a side note, HungryHouse do have special offers on sometimes, keep an eye on their Twitter and Facebook for these deals.

Subway Sandwich Goal

Published by:

A goal has been achieved tonight. When I started my recovery of anorexia, I always promised myself that I would make it my goal to eat a meatball subway sandwich—may seem silly, but it’s about having something to overcome your fears.
So, today was that day, I ate the whole thing, including the salad, and I must say, it tasted bloody wonderful.
That’s another goal down, many more to go. Signing off, chat again soon.

Admission Anxiety

Published by:

I HAVE NOTICED a recurring symptom to my anxiety disorder, or should I say symptoms. The first one is prickly heat, this happens whenever I get hot or worked up, and this could be at any time. Even, though, I have noticed it more after meals, especially hot meals. Secondly, I have noticed a slight on the edge feeling before and after dinner. This makes my heart speed up to rapid levels and causes dizziness. Lastly, an edgy feeling while I am out, this is usually occupied by intense sweating and dizziness.
     This is a mixture of problems, and obviously it won’t be cured overnight. I forgot to mention. I also get worked up and have panic attacks when I am stressed out by any situation—the last blog I wrote is a good example.
     So, with that in mind, I am trying hard to think of ways to combat this disorder. I am taking many medications to calm me down, trying to exercise and lift weights when I can, and cutting down on any caffeine intake. I must lookup more methods to help me, they might help, and they might not, but it’s all worth a try at least.
     Anyhow, there’s my admission to anxiety troubles I am facing, let’s hope there will be a way forward because I can’t keep living like this, it’s very unhealthy.

Um …Dumplings?

Published by:

28 July: Sunday

Um …I forgot?

Well, you wouldn’t believe this, but I completely forgot to write today’s blog, lucky for me that this isn’t the published day because I would be screwed! Anyhow, let’s get on to today! The day has been one of those relaxing, but productive days. I know that seems like an odd combination, but what do you expect? I’m probably the oddest guy you will ever meet! Ask K, she will tell you, I’m unique, and not always in a good way.

These relaxing days fit right into what a Sunday should comprise of. I must admit even though today has been relaxed, I have spent a few hours trying to sort my novels. This isn’t anything major, I’ve had some of the stuff wrote down in my notepads for a while, but I haven’t found the time recently to duplicate it all through my computer. I managed to get everything I have down on paper typed up onto the computer, how about that? Took me a few hours, but I got there in the end. I must remember to stop getting myself in these catchup moments because it could start getting me stressed.

Anyhow, this was only a quick blog, and I promise tomorrow’s blog will be even longer. So, until then, stay safe and take care!

29 July: Monday

Dumpling Search!

Today has certainly been busy, the morning started off in the local council offices, and surprisingly we weren’t waiting around long. Normally the local offices are packed and it takes ages before you see anyone. The one thing that makes me laugh is the ticket system, say for example you get ticket number eleven and the current number being called is ten, and then the next number it calls is twenty-seven. I thought a ticket system was meant to be in order? How does it get from ten and then twenty-seven? That things got a virus!

Anyhow, after we finished in the council office, we walked towards the shop to start shopping. Mum and Cassie (sister) wanted to grab a drink from Costa Coffee first, I wasn’t in any mood to have a drink today. I’ve been feeling under the weather recently, I don’t know whether its to do with my stomach or the lack of sleep, but either way it put me off having a Costa Coffee. While they were having their drinks, I decided to wonder over to WHSmith to look for some new books. This search became pointless after five minutes, the only books they had that interested me were the ones I already own. So, with no books in hand, I walked out of the shop and headed back towards Costa Coffee. As I approached mum, I looked at her and said ‘well that was pointless, they had a poor selection. The only books I was interested in were the ones I already own.’ Mum replied with her usual ‘oh well, you can look in another shop.’ I know this isn’t my mum’s fault, but I was just disappointed because I wanted to find something new to read.

After we finished up in Costa Coffee, it was time to do the usual wander around the pound shop. This is something I hate, the shops are packed, people get in my way, and it makes me feel closed in. I did my usual, I got half way round and handed my card to mum and I walked outside to wait for them. I know this may seem weird, but in all honesty I am not going to be somewhere that causes me to have a panic attack. Not long after I started to wait for them, they emerged with bags of shopping. Unfortunately, time was pushing on for mum and she needed to leave to attend a prearranged meeting. So, we said our goodbyes and we left mum to go on her way.

The next thing we had to do was find something to eat for Cassie and Amber (niece), I wasn’t having anything to eat due to the sickness. We ended up siting in Burger King, I watched Amber eat a small chocolate Sundae. She really enjoyed it, the ice-cream was going all over her face and T-shirt, but it didn’t matter, she enjoyed it which was the main thing. After this, I went to Waterstones while Cassie went outside to have a cigarette. I had some luck in this store, I brought four new books that interested me. Maybe I should shop at Waterstones more often? They seem to have a better selection to choose from, and they have a dedicated section for crime books. So, with four books in hand and £20 lighter, I walked out of Waterstones feeling happy that I found some books that I will enjoy.

I can’t help but laugh at this next part, we were walking around Asda looking at the different foods, and from nowhere Cassie randomly said ‘I fancy dumplings!’ I don’t know where this came from, but from that point onwards she had a craving for dumplings, it was like she became the dumpling monster, it’s a bit like the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street. Lucky for her though, the search for dumplings didn’t take long. I must admit she made the right choice; we had them for dinner and they were lovely!

So, as you can tell, we had a fun day. Well, apart from when I got home and then shortly after running out to collect medication. I needed to collect those anyway, my pain has been uncontrollable over the last day because I ran out of tablets. Anyhow, enough of me rambling on. I will speak to you all in the next blog, until then, stay safe and take care.

Jaffa Cakes Addiction!

Published by:

Well, it turns out I got some sleep last night, but it was still interrupted. I was waking in the middle of the night with pains across my abdomen, these pains were caused by food trying to digest. I know this was self-inflicted, well this time anyway, and probably most of the time recently. I was going to say that I have excuses, but in all fairness, I don’t. I know I’m addicted to Jaffa cakes, but what can I do about it? I guess I could cut down on the amount I eat; I normally have twelve at a time, which is probably too many. I know I need to cut down because it’s affecting my digestive system.

Today started out semi early for me; I woke up at 8am, and believe me, I didn’t want to get up, but I had to because I needed to sell my old MacBook. So, I got up and made myself a drink. While I was waiting for my tea to brew, I looked through my cupboard to find some food. I was spoilt for choice, I had Weetabix, noodles, spaghetti and Jaffa cakes, bet you can guess what I chose. That’s right, I chose Jaffa cakes. If I had more time, I would have chosen to cook noodles, but because I was in a rush, I needed to make something quick.

So, to brief, I had my breakfast and then I walked into town. When I arrived into town, I walked over to the shop where I was selling my MacBook. I always go to this shop when I need to sell something because I get the cash straight away. After a long wait and some minor negotiations, I walked out the shop with some money, I won’t say how much I got for my MacBook because its only money. Once I deposited that into my bank account, I headed over to Tesco to pick up some shopping. I had a long list of things I needed to buy, but in the end I only walked out with two items.  I wasn’t in any mood to carry loads of shopping home, so I decided to just buy the things I needed.

Anyhow, apart from walking home, nothing more has happened today. I have been on Twitter most of day connecting with different authors, and I have also been writing more. So, with that said, I am signing off, time to watch some Big Bang Theory!

You’re a Nutter, Lovely Meal

Published by:

I am guessing it is going to be a long day, it is now 12:11am and I am wide awake watching the webcams at the haunted house in York that I went to recently. I can certainly say that was an interesting experience, but I will tell you about that at a later date because I want to dedicate a whole blog to it.

Anyway, as I was saying. The time is certainly getting on here and it seems like the weather is getting colder again. I don’t know why it is getting cold, we had beautiful hot sunshine earlier, it was so hot that I could walk around with my top off, glad the neighbors didn’t see because they would have got a shock! I mean walking around with no boxers on is enough to scare anyone, I bet your all thinking you dirty bugger, don’t worry I didn’t do it really, but wouldn’t it be hilarious if I did? Okay, you all have mental image didn’t need, job done! Now, look what I have done! I have scared you for life, oh well, at least I will be in your thoughts, just promise me one thing though, no stalkers!

So, it turns out that I get very funny when I get tired. As I look back at what I just wrote, I am thinking are you nuts? The short answer to that is yes, but in my own defense, crazy is the new normal, it makes life more fun, don’t you agree? I bet you all just answered no to that question, and I even bet some of you rolled your eyes in disgust and called me an idiot.

I have just realized something funny, it feels like I am having a conversation with someone, but I am on my own in the dinning room, how weird is that? I think this is a sign, and it says you’re a complete nutcase. I once passed a sign on the motorway saying nutcase’s this way, I just thought it was the chocolate factory, but I guess I was the nut they were looking for. Anyway, before I get myself in trouble, I am off to sleep, well try to at least.

After many went by, I finally had some sleep, okay it was at 7am, but at least I had some sleep. Anyway, today was reasonably hot, I regret wearing my coat because I was sweating like a pig. I won’t complain though because it means more warmer days are ahead, and it also means we will get a hotter summer.

I am going to skip ahead a few hours, you will understand why I want to do this later. We all went to my sisters (Cassie) for dinner today, it was a lovely meal, I certainly enjoyed it. My sister made sausage casserole, mash, vegetables, and for afters we had chocolate cake & cream. I ate everything, including extra’s. I am beyond stuffed, I had a McFlurry after we left my sisters, and I regret eating it because I feel stuffed & sick!

Anyway guys & gals, I am going to sign off now, I am beyond stuffed and I feel like I am going to throw up.

Until tomorrow,

Marc.

Choking Cough, and McFlurries!

Published by:

Amber-Sucking-my-Knuckle-17-April-2013

16 April 2013:

Choke, choke, choke, that’s what I have had to put up with during the night. I don’t know what’s causing it, it’s like my body wants to kill me in my sleep. As each hour went by, I was rudely woken up by a choking cough, it was happening every two hours and in the end I gave up trying to sleep because it was starting to annoy me.

Anyway, with a long day ahead, I stayed up and watched television. I had nothing else to do, I couldn’t play the guitar because it was 4am and I don’t think the neighbors would appreciate it, and I couldn’t do writing either because my mind was all over the place due to my medication.

17 April 2013:

So, it turns out that I went on a downer after writing that last paragraph. I don’t know what came over me, it was like someone took over my body. I ended up spending all yesterday wrapped up in bed, I couldn’t be bothered facing the world. While I was in bed, I constantly thought silly things, blaming myself for things that weren’t my fault. I even wrote a three page document about how I feel, I haven’t read it back yet, but I do know I had a few swear words in it. I know I shouldn’t blame myself, but I always worry, and I guess loneliness is getting the better of me.

Anyway, on to today. The day started out with a walk to McDonalds to get some McFlurries, I was in need of a real sugar boost. While I was walking down, I thought I would text Cassie (sister) to see if she was at home, she was home, so I decided to pick up the McFlurries first, and then I will walk over to Cassie’s to eat them.

When I picked up the McFlurries, I put them down on the table to peel off the Monopoly stickers. As I pulled all four stickers off, I found that I had won a free big Mac meal and I also won a free cheeseburger, it has been a long time since I had won anything and I was surprised my luck was changing, but even though I won, I couldn’t eat that kind of food anyway because I can’t swallow it.

So, to be brief, I arrived at Cassie’s and I sat down with my McFlurries & a cup of tea. While I was eating, I spotted Amber (niece) was eying up my ice-cream, so being the good uncle that I am, I decided to share it with her. This was a hilarious task because I was shaking like a leaf and the ice-cream was going all over Ambers face. Once she had the first taste of the ice-cream, she went nuts for more, all I could hear was Amber saying yum, yum, yum. After a couple of spoonfuls, I decided to let Cassie feed her some of the spare McFlurry I had. She didn’t have all of it, but I think Amber had other ideas about that because she loved it. When she got to half way, we decided to stop because the chances are, she will throw it up later, and that’s one thing we didn’t want to happen.

Amber-Sucking-my-Knuckle-17-April-2013

Amber Sucking My Knuckle

Once Amber was finished with the ice-cream, she wanted to suck on my knuckle because she is teething. When she was gumming on my knuckle, I could feel the full force of her gums on my knuckle. I didn’t mind because she is teething, but she certainly has a good chomp on those gums.

After thirty minutes went by, I decided to head home. I was starting to get hungry and I needed some painkillers. As I walked home, I was enjoying the peace, all the kids were in school, and for some reason there wasn’t many people about, which made it extra peaceful.

So, to be brief, I got home and started writing the blog. I haven’t done much of the blog recently, it isn’t like I haven’t had the time, I think my depression has been causing me some issues this week, but I think it will pass soon. I did have some good news today, I had my first revenue payment from my publisher, okay it wasn’t much, but it was a start. I have been writing for over two years, it is about time I had some sort of payment after all this time.

Anyhow, on that positive note, I must sign off. I am starting to feel very tired, and I need to find something to eat, even though after four McFlurries earlier, I am starting to feel a bit sick.

Until tomorrow,

Marc.
