Day of hospitals & Doctors & laziness...

Up and about early today - appointment at 'The Rivers' hospital in Sawbridgeworth...a private establishment & one can see why people with dosh use them (good old NHS paying for me...). Lovely green driveway complete with a BEAUTY of a green woodpecker watching me as I arrived...appointment at 8.15 ... only me there - no lights, dr, nurse, other worried patients...peace:). Anyway examined, in places I don't wish to talk about & going back Friday for ultrasound & Monday for consultant again... Right now (7.45 pm) I'm at the doctors waiting for the results of my wee, x-ray & blood tests from 2 weeks ago - stand by to get told off for cholesterol at the very least :)

Sat in pub with my NEW netbook (and I'm chuffed to bits with it...)

watching the world go by - by a bus station - in Stevenage - atmosphere... zero...cider 10/10.

It's half term, and in the depths of my dark and depressed winter of discontent ( at myself more than with the world at large) I thought that this would probably be my last half term. Feel better now - BUT...

Anyway - it's a half term offering hospitals, doctors, mother and grandchildren, coffee, wine, ale..and hopefully a job for Suzie :)

#getfitordie cont....

Phew - two days on the trot !! Feeling completely knackered right now...in a good way.

Mind you, yesterday's fish'n chips and lovely bottle of Italian red wasn't exactly part of the new regime :)

Nearly made it under 30 min :)

Lovely morning though.

Fat and getting olderrrrrr…..


Here I am, nearing 55 and coming to the end of a depressed, overeating, overindulging winter….

E.G. I’m a tad ‘overweight’ Thumbs down


ALSO – there’s a distinct possibility I might have to teach PE to lots of energetic and enthusiastic young children at school from the Autumn term…LIKE THIS errrr noway hozay….


Well, obvious really – lose weight and get fit…Smile

SO – as of today I’ve embarked on a ‘regime’…AND given myself an incentive of a holiday

The intention is to get one of these…

Calmac ferry at Coll pier

and run in the 10k ‘fun run’ in August Smile

( oh and visit Tiree as well)
