Well it's technically Monday, but I'm on the end of Sunday.  Slowly sipping a second small glass of wine and off to bed shortly.  As it happens I've not had a drop of alcohol for three weeks till just now.  I must be ill..  :blink:

 

Been on a bit of a 'health kick'.  Mostly 'low carb' meals..especially lunchtime and mid week. It's not really difficult..  just replace things such as spuds, rice etc., with loads of veggies such as cabbage, cauli, green beans or whatever. No snacks. 16:8 diet, which means you eat your day's food in 8 hours and fast for 16. Not much effort for me to do that as I rarely eat breakfast, so I just finish eating by 8-9 pm and have nothing till lunchtime next day.

 

Also back into walking. Mostly up the hill and into the woods every other day, with shorter walks and swimming or a bit of weight training on others.

 

I've lost about 12 lbs so far.. but I can't really see where from...

  1. Yes its Monday, up at 2.30 again cant sleep ,bored stiff, hundreds of tv programs all trash , I then remembered seeing that others were having the same problems so I logged in and  saw that I was the only member with 7 guests .  What do others do to use the time to use up the dark hours, I daren't make any noise in case I wake the wife yes I am a coward . What do others do? , I am unable to sit for very long so reading a good book is out so I am continually walking about it don't take long in a bungalow. Still it will be light soon but not soon enough.

Bloomin' dog on the next street woke me at 1.30am again, I must have got back to sleep because I woke again at 3.15am. We call it two bark dog, because that is what it does, until it is exhausted. Has a rest and then starts again.

 

I read my book for a while, titled 'The King Makers Daughter written by Philippa Gregory' brilliant story written in such a way that even I can understand it.

 

Followed that with a session on my laptop, all done without sound on so as not to wake hubbs. Somehow I ended up on WW2? not the most restful thing to be reading up on. Ended up re reading about ' Little Boy and Fat Man', Hiroshima and Nagasaki. No chance of sleep now?

Chopped Ham and Pork, as kids we used to call it plopped ham and chalk. I was kept awake in the night by Foxes in the garden up to no good.

Mary, I know they are about because we see them, but can't for the life of me think which shops. We don't buy them anymore. When the kids were small, we used to buy them often but now there is only two of us we would end up with soggy biscuits. I looked on the internet and they are advertised under the name of 'House of Lancaster Broken Biscuits', but you have to buy bulk., at least four boxes. If I remember the shop, I will let you know.

Carni, you could always buy four boxes. Surely you must have three friends who would like an early Christmas present.

Ben, I'll  be having spam fritters for lunch today, wanna join me?

What with you and Gem and various others, maybe we should organise the next meet-up for the middle of the night.

 

Suggestions for a suitable location...

'Cow and Gate..Farmer's Wife..Double.Devon..Cream..'  Amazing what rubbish gets stored in our brains.. :laugh:

 

Dreams about work after retirememnt.  They seem to be very common.. Just look here:

 

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Dreams+about+work+long+after+retirement%3F&t=ffnt&ia=web

 

The common thread seems to be things going wrong, like Ben leaving food all over the country, or whatever.  Those of us who've met Ben know he's a snappy dresser and very tidy.  I reckon it's that.. nightmare failures of his natural tidiness..  But there's probably a deeper psychology to it as well.. where he unconsciously sets up excuses for meeting the Laydees in far flung parts..  ;)

 

I still get work dreams, 5 years into retirement. Noticeable that they are always about the last few years, when I was trying to do my job properly..the way I was trained.. and for the right reasons.  I.E.to help people...not to provide endless statistics.  Sadly, by that time the whole organisation had been filled with 'managers', who knew the square root of bugger all about Career Guidance, but everything about filling forms and meeting pointless targets.

 

It's always nice to wake up from those dreams.

  I have a wife who is very proficient at breaking biscuits..and the chocolate coating on Magnums, before she's even got them out of the car.

Thanks David, I did wonder if it was Home Bargains or the other one B@M. You have saved me a journey. :)

Same yesterday with the chaos caused by the Robin Hood half marathon. Don't the organisers realise folks have things to do and lives to lead ? Let em run round Wollaton Pk lake a few times.
