Back 'home' I had some very inexpensive bookshelves up on the landing.  Along with most of my furniture they got left behind because I had nowhere to move them to.  No matter.  Now that I have the boxes and boxes of books, I figured I'd buy some... Read more

Surprisingly, the visit from The ex Worker[?] Friend went quite well.  There wasn't any particular awkwardness and he seemed to be on his 'best behaviour'.  Not least putting things back after he'd shifted them to get at his stuff.  A simple thi... Read more

I went to Morrisons supermarket this evening such are my 'Friday Night's Out' these days.  Primarily because I was low on milk.  But also because I wanted somewhere to walk 'to'.  I decided to test out the first of the river routes and opted for... Read more

19th March I finally dipped out of the 140's.  My next goal weight loss wise was to get to 135.6 lbs as that would be a whole stone [14lbs] since I started the daily walking.  The next few weeks though I spent going up and down mostly somewhere ... Read more

My neck's a lot better but still painful when I wake up.  Basically yesterday and this morning, I took some paracetamol when I got up, and have otherwise been medication free.  Maybe I need some sort of support pillow?  I'll leave it to The Rese... Read more

Vamos!   My boy came through.  Again.  Imagine if I were a gambler, I could have won a fortune on backing Rafa.  Or maybe not - the odds would be terrible. Me - I'd like to put a big fat wedge of money on Nadal winning The French Open/... Read more

Woke up in quite a bit of pain with my neck again this morning which was a bit discouraging until I gave myself a little pep talk.  'Come along now Tiz, of course it's going to be hurting more when you wake up.  That's normal with these type of ... Read more

Thank you all for your tips and suggestions for dealing with the pulled muscle.  I went to bed last night with an ice pack tucked inside my jama top.  Might sound bizarre but it enabled me to get a reasonable night's sleep compared to Wednesday ... Read more
Pain Control

Last night was awful with very little sleep. The pain in my neck and right shoulder blade got worse, plus spread, as these things do, across my whole neck, my right shoulder and upper arm, and lower down my right shoulder blade.  I simply could... Read more

I've been feeling kind of bleugh the last couple of days.  Fed up and unable to settle to anything.  Not feeling particularly well though nothing I could put my finger on.  This morning as I was drinking my vat of tea, there was a loud thud as t... Read more

Occasionally I like to do crossword puzzles and the like.  Sometimes on a sunny day, whilst sitting in the garden, or on the beach, or maybe when I'm taking a train journey, that's how I like to while away my time.  I like to use a pencil.  A pe... Read more
Morriston or Morrisons?
Saturday, May 08, 2021      7 comments

I really felt today that I wanted to walk 'to' somewhere rather than just walk.  Realistically my options boiled down to turn right out of Base Camp and walk to Morriston - the high street area about a mile and a half away.  Or turn left and hea... Read more

Walked to Morriston today to get my new glasses.  Also walked back - three miles in total.  Or 4.9 km as my phone will insist on measuring it.  Saved me having to worry about where to take my walk today.  I like it when I've got somewhere specif... Read more
