I’ve realised I haven’t been looking after myself as well as I could have the last few weeks. I feel I have my fair share of shit hitting a lot of fans right now, so the last thing I need to be doing is getting said shit off the fans & smearing it on myself. Ain’t that a lovely image!

I’ve been a little all over the place recently. I posted Will He Come Out about three weeks ago, which goes into a bit of detail on this. So, with everything going on & another issue on top of it that I won’t go into now, things are…well a bit shit right now.

Anyway the things I should have been doing to look after myself are small-ish on there own, but daft now I look back & see that I’ve done it, or haven’t, if you see what I mean. For example, last week was pretty much sunny everyday and roughly twenty degrees & in my job as a postman I’m outside from 10:00 to 14:30. So I need to be drinking plenty of water to keep myself going. Which I wasn’t doing! I was drinking, but not as much as I should have been. At the time I was making excuses like, “I don’t have time to buy the extra bottle of water” blah blah blah.

Other examples were simply not doing my fair share of the housework & even on the odd occasion of not having a shower after work. Which trust me, after 4-5 hours walking and cycling in twenty degrees heat…I needed to!

Now don’t get me wrong, as I said, I know these things are fairly small & aren’t life changers, but they’re the kind of thing, that if I don’t keep in check, can slowly escalate & in a few months down the line I’ll be depressed.

So a pat on the back for me! Why? Because I really am getting better at reading the signs that can eventually send me into a shitty funk 🙂

Ummmm you may have wondered what the hell was the picture at the top all about. Well, I typed in ‘balancing pics’ on Google & there it was. It made me chuckle, as every now and again I catch my cats doing this. Why do they do this? How the feck would I know, they’re cats!

Lucy As A Kitten

OK so you guys seemed to like the video I did of Lucy, so here is another one. She about 3-4 months old here & is chasing a paper ball wrapped in sellotape.

I love it at 0:11 when she stands on her back legs with her front paws in the air giving it “This is just to much fun” 😀

I woke up this morning to the dulcet  tones of my wife…

“GRAHAM!!!!…Lucy has brought something in…it’s ALIVE!! it’s a bird!!


“Graham get up …it’s chirping”

So there I was, at 07:30 running round the living room with kitchen towel in hand ready to catch it. Poor little thing was actually a Robin. See below image

Robin singing on branch

Tiny little thing was very cute.

Anyway it looked like it had injured it’s wing, so I managed to catch it & put it on our balcony hoping it was well enough to fly away. We obviously kept our little predators in to give it a chance of escape. Laura checked the balcony 30mins later & said it had gone.

Two hours later I checked the balcony & low & behold the poor little bugger was still there, skulking in the corner trying to do it’s best impression of “You can’t see me!”

I managed to catch it again & put it in our pet carrier & took it to our vet. She said she would put in one of their cages & if need be take it to the area hospital for treatment. So all in all I think the birdie will see another day thanks to yours truly. Get me all heroic like 🙂

If you haven’t seen any pics of our Lucy AKA Killer here she is in all her cute, “butter wouldn’t melt” glory…

Now I don’t know about you, but I’m very impressed I’ve managed to raise my little princess to bring any injured birdies they come across to me to nurse back to health…

I love this song & used to listen to it loads at Uni.

Ironic because I’m of the opinion they do work. Both recreational & medicinal… 🙂 But hey that’s just me

Technically I could just pick 15 things from my last list but I’ll try to add others.

1. Make names or phrases from car registration plates. A time passer in traffic.

2. Try to beat time when travelling long distance in the car. If you want me to expand ask below…

3. Swimming

4. Having BBQ’s

5. Meeting up with friends

6. Following Everton Football Club

7. Obviously blogging. Never thought this would be something I did though.

8. Eating out. Doesn’t it taste so much better?!?!?!?

9. Watching Films. I don’t do this enough. It isn’t helped by the fact my wife refuses to watch 18 rated films & even some 15 rated. *SIGHS*

10. I haven’t done it yet, but I want to start doing rock climbing. I used to love climbing as a kid, soooo….

11. Reading Sci-Fi & crime novels.

12. Watching Formula 1

13. Watching Athletics

14. Pig out on sweets, crisps & chocolate. If I could eat this healthily I soooo would.

15. Being around animals. Especially cats.
