Good grief, how can we possibly be half way through January already? Ridiculous.
Well the last couple of weeks have been up and down, I’ve had some bad days with my back, and none worse than today – I woke up feeling pretty good and then had a really nasty moment while I was crouching down to play with the cat. Real agonizing pain the likes of which I haven’t felt in years, not good. Luckily I have an appointment with my chiropractor tomorrow morning.
Ah yes, I did say cat. We have a new cat, sort of… well, we’ve been feeding her for months. She lives across the road really, but since we’ve been letting her in she seems to not want to go home and has slept here for about the last ten nights. So I think we really need to go and talk to her owner about things…
She’s ginger, and very affectionate and very playful, which is odd because she’s been around for years, I’ve always found older cats don’t play that much. Her owner has several cats and a dog and I don’t think she goes in the house much because the other cats bully her. So she’s better off here frankly, and it’s lovely to have a cat who sits on you again. Minky, bless her, was never much company.
The dieting is going well, I’ve lost about half a stone in the first two weeks, which is exactly what I expected. You know, I don’t really understand how people can get really, really huge. I find there comes a point (about 250lbs) where I feel like absolute shit, and it acts like a kind of buffer. I mean I get that there are circumstances and other factors which affect people, but personally I always hit this point and I just know that it’s time to stop. I already feel a lot better but I still need to lose a lot of weight. It’s so frustrating knowing I need to lose two stone to get back to where I got to before.
Well I haven’t started any writing yet, and I need to get on with it if I’m going to hit my target of doing four stories this year. Ideally I need to finish one before the end of March…
Time for bed I think, hope all of you are having a good start to the year, and hopefully I might have something a bit more exciting to write about soon.
