How’s the new year treating you so far?
I’ve had a head cold, done my back in shovelling snow, took a hot bath to ease the pain, passed out getting out of the bath and came to on the bathroom floor, burned two sick days already, got a massive cold sore under my nose from blowing it constantly and the dentist says I need a root canal.
Got Covid for the second time. Third time for my wife. Going well so far…
Flew back from a great Thai hol on the 2nd. Picked up Covid on the plane. Horrible fever, shakes etc. Then the wife got it from me. Sick and in the doghouse.
Im a pretty positive person but sometimes life keeps on kicking you in the knackers. Eventually the kicker will get tired. I fkin hope so
I’ve now had 19 pints in 2024.
Started off ok. I am not back to work until 5th feb. My last company put me on gardening leave when I handed my notice in. Doing jobs , early morning swimming & reading lots of books
Stay well all
Slow start. Usual pile of books to stare at, music to listen to, films to watch. Applied to adopt a cat.
Harvest Ah, that’s nice. Your decision or Mrs H’s?
If it’s a boy moggy, call it Cooley. Cheers. 🐈⬛👍
Daughter and grandkids finally moved out and got settled in to their new house.
Weekends so far mostly spent doing jobs in the house, off up later to fit a laminate floor in the hallway .
Ours is dead quiet these days … too quiet.
Like the peace sometimes but miss having them around.
Cooley Cooley Cat scans well tbh. You can even sing Squeeze track to him H.
Developed some sort of nerve problem on the side of me swede. Sensitive to very light touch. Prescribed some tablets. Can’t drink. 🤨
Thus, shite so far.
Every year’s a good year for me. I’m just grateful I’m not either in hospital or prison.
7lbs down and no beer yet.
Works fucked already and ordered a new boiler for Tuesday.
That said about to go for a run, restrung the guitar and going to fire the amps up in a bit.
Talked my 5 year old in Whitby away at Warrington at 3pm.
2024 so far
My sister went in for a routine operation came out with a lung infection
My Dad who will be 80 in May has an operation later this month to remove cancer legions from his face
The uncle i lost due to covid 4 years ago his wife has lost all her savings due to her son my cousin helping himself to the lot to feed his cocaine habit , she’s applied for equality release on her home and he’s spent that also on cocaine , he set up online banking for his mothers account .
Only twelve days in and everything things going just great
hendersonjones Bloody hell, what an awful situation for your auntie.
hendersonjones cunt. My 66 year heroin addicted brother in law did his utmost to spend his dad’s money before he died. The cunt.
And my tools and van fucked , it’s only the 18th Jan , still on for dry January but i could of killed for a cold lager last night onwards and upwards
Was unwell at the start so the Christmas/New Year break didn’t feel like one in many ways but not drinking and the early nights probably did me a world of good.
Trying to carry on with getting better and longer sleep. In bed at 10 last night and can feel the benefits today. Good job as work is back to being the relentless, wild ride to Stressville it was in ’23.
Kids are well. Mrs too. Betty’s settled in at our kid’s. Things could be a lot worse.
It is H , when his father died he moved back in with his mother , we all thought fair play helping out
Four years later he’s still there no job and sponging from his mother , i don’t think there’s anything left he’s truly took everything for his addiction , i think he was a user before his father passed personaly
Reggie_Perrin And feed it on sausage rolls, chips, sprouts and gravy.
