I planned to get up at 7:30am this morning. However, I got a phone call at 7:20am, and was on the phone for 20 minutes. That then put me back a bit. I checked my emails, so that put me back more, and then I missed my chance in the bathroom. I got downstairs for 9:00am.

Murray Monday

June 29th, 2009 No comments

I did not get up at the time I had set my alarm for. I am conditioning myself to get up earlier each day in preparation for going back to work. Today’s target was 8:30am to get up. I did not sleep well at all last night, and so I looked at the clock at 6:15am, and thought I had a good two hours sleep left. I then woke up, and thought it was only a few minutes after, but it turns out that it was 8:15am.

Sunday… Plus a quandary.

June 28th, 2009 2 comments

Nothing much happened today. I was tired after all my sticking yesterday, especially my right shoulder. I must favour that arm more when I stick, or something like that. I breakfasted, sudokued, exercised and interneted.

An adventurous day.

June 27th, 2009 No comments

Yesterday, I had decided that I would go to my apartment to make sure all was well. I could not connect to my VPN, so I knew something was up, it was just a case of finding out whether it was electrical or internetal. So, I was up earlyish, and had my normal breakfast, and then Dad took me to the apartment at around 10:45am.

Been in the UK for 3 Weeks

June 26th, 2009 No comments

Yes, today is the 3 week anniversary of my repatriation to the UK. I celebrated by getting up early (well, earlier). I was down and finished my exercises by 9:30am! Nothing much occured this morning, and at 1:15pm, I went to get some food.

In Shanghai, I used to make pancakes with cheese and ham, so I thought I would make one today. The recipe for my fantastic pancakes is simple:-

Final day of solitude…

I managed to get up and down for breakfast by 9:45am. I got all the stuff through fairly quickly and ate. I finished one Suduko, and then did my exercises.

5 weeks and a Kozi Quiz

June 24th, 2009 1 comment

Again, as the title says, it is 5 weeks today since the surgery. More exercises done, and hopefully closer to a full recovery. It is 3 weeks tomorrow that I go to the hospital for further X-rays to see how the bone is healing. My scar has been a bit sore today, but massaging it seems to have helped it.

I was home alone today, and so breakfast took a bit of time to take through into the dining room. I had the usual Weetabix, and drank the milk from the bottle, (no one will ever know…). I did my post breakfast exercises, and relaxed in the chair for a while. Before I knew it, it was lunch time, so I made my way to the kitchen.

Holiday Tuesday

June 23rd, 2009 1 comment

Up a bit earlier to make sure that I was ready before Mum and Dad left for their short break. I was down and breakfasted by 9:45am, so a bit earlier than yesterday. Dad said that they were due to leave at 10:30am. They actually left at 10:55am. I was surprised that it was so close to the correct time! Mum was still in the shower at 10:10am…

Blue Monday

June 22nd, 2009 No comments

Up late today. I was going to get up earlier this week, but I missed my chance in the bathroom, and so did not get up until 9:45am. I had my breakfast, did the easy sudoku, and then started on my new regime. I am doing my exercises after each meal, as I have to use my sticks to go from the table to sit down in the chair anyway, so I might as well do my exercises on the way.

British GP Day

June 21st, 2009 No comments

No need to get up early today as there was no practice before the race. I got downstairs for breakfast at around 10:00am, and then did a sudoku.

Coverage started for the GP at 12:10pm, and I turned it on around 12:20pm. I have never been an avid watcher of all the pre-race stuff that goes on. I like to watch the qualifying and the race. All the punditry that goes on before and after is verbal chaff to me.
