Having opinions of bin bags

Tomorrow is bin day. As I got our rubbish ready to be taken out, I noticed that my wife has bought new bin bags. The ones we used to use had handles. I really liked them. However, these new ones are pretty nice.

It’s at that point that I realised that I have an opinion on bin bags. I like the new ones although I like the ones with handles. It’s the second time bin day has shown me something.

The first time was when I took the bins out for the first time I thought “I guess this is now part of my life”…

The new bags feel thicker and more luxurious. I’m wasting my life.

WhatsApp apologies

Earlier someone told me that they sent me a message on WhatsApp. I was all like “I’m not on WhatsApp!” to which they replied “Well you are, I sent you a message!” It was at this point that I realised that well over a year ago, I installed WhatsApp and never used it, removing it from my phone a week later.

Turns out that, after installing it again this evening a lot of the people I work with use it and a couple of them have sent me messages on there. Not only that, I had messages dating back to August 2014.

To the people who have sent me messages on WhatsApp and I’ve not responded: I’m sorry!

Feeling optimistic again!

I have had a strange day. For some reason my cough is getting worse which sucks. Last night I had a fever which was awful but as least I am warm in my not that well heated house.

I feel a bit better. I’m looking forward to next week as for the first time in 4 months I’ve got a break from work. It’s only 5 days but I’m very much looking forward to it. I’m also excited because tomorrow marks the first time I’ll be getting paid since Christmas. I’m not saying that it’s been a tough month or whatever but it’s seemed like forever since I got paid last.

I cannot help but look forward to the summer. I’m looking forward to spending time in my garden, chilling out, reading and stuff.


Today is the first time for a while that I’ve felt normal (well semi-normal). I’ve felt optimistic and not feeling sorry for myself as I lie on the sofa trying not to cough my face off.

I’ve enjoyed the new “journal” element to my blog. It’s therapeutic.

Falling asleep in front of the TV

I made myself a nest

Going pro

I often say that we should embrace the little things in our lives. Those little things that make our lives that bit more enjoyable. One of those things that I enjoy is falling asleep in front of the TV

I work full-time and I feel as though I have earned the right to fall asleep in front of the TV. It is great. To me it shows me that I am so relaxed that I cannot help but drift off on the sofa.

The funny thing is when I tell people that I really enjoy falling asleep in front of the TV at night they agree and tell me that they also enjoy it. Now those people could just be agreeing with me to shut me up but it’s interesting to think that I am not alone.

I am writing this when I’m tired and falling asleep in front of the TV sounds pretty good to me…

Coughing mad!

wpid-20141003_214418.jpgI woke up this morning and felt like death. Yes, I know that I’ve gone on and on about me being ill but it has consumed my life. Last night my wife insisted that I need to sleep as much as I could. It’s weird because (in my fever ridden state) I thought that if I really tried to have proper sleep I can have proper sleep. I woke up many times during the night but I was happy as I had hours left to continue sleeping.

I was in a dilemma this morning. I really felt like crap and since I was the only manager at work until 10am I had to weigh up my options. Inevitably I went into work and thought about somehow going home early. My wife gave me a pep talk before I left saying that I would feel worse if I was to wallow in my sickness. She’s always right. Let’s not pretend that I felt OK at work, I felt awful. It wasn’t until I got home that I started to feel worse (I stayed my whole shift). My wife made me have a cuppa and eat some ginger nut biscuits in the hope that it’ll help me get rid of the phlegm that resides in my throat causing me to cough.

On a side note, two of my old work colleagues came into my new place of work. It’s always nice to catch up with people you haven’t seen for a while.

I also want to mention that whilst I happen to look at the CCTV cameras at work, I looked up at exactly the right moment as I watched a woman’s umbrella turn inside out. It was comical but I felt her pain as it’s annoying when that happens.

That’s all I’ve got to say today.
