Quiet day today... hope people are ok...

Sorry busy day
How are you?
07/02/2013 at 21:35

Ok thanks. Bit blue...about to move down to London and start a new job so past couple of months I've been sat around doing nothing...and I hate it. I have no motivation to do anything and gives me too much time in my own head....

How are you? Hope things are ok

Know the feeling well.  Is the move to London one you'd prefer not to be making then?  I'd certainly not want to be going there. 

Had a rough start to the day and for most of the day at work.  Seemed to have improved though towards the end of the day and I ran well in the night orienteering event.  Sufficiently so to make me feel a bit better. 

I've put back my weekend family visit for a week due to concerns over the weather at the weekend so I've got time on my hands this weekend.  Putting it to positive use is the tricky bit though.

Whereabouts in London? I moved out of NE London just over 3 years ago. There are times I do miss it

Anyone with time on their hands is welcome to come and help bring order to the by eck household. Getting this kitchen done means not.only sorting and packing up the kitchen but also clearing space in the living area, tidying the cave, and filling the freezer with adult and moo friendly food.

I'm excited to move in some respects, but also it's a whole new world really...and I'm unsure how i'll react...

I'm hoping it'll give me some more structure though. I'm struggling atm just as I have no routine and nothing to actually do with myself. And when you have all the time in the world, motivation to actually do things is none existent...

Well done on the run . A good run can always make the day seem a bit better.

By'eck - moving to Southwark. Will make a change from the countryside where I am now!

I did the reverse - Woodford green to.north Hampshire
Rwtw, do you have job lined up?
07/02/2013 at 21:58

Yeah, its been lined up for quite a few months now (graduate job). Excited to start as new start and as cheesy as it sounds, kinda the dream job...its just been these months in between that have been tough

07/02/2013 at 22:07
Recent graduate?
07/02/2013 at 22:21

Yeah, last summer

Welcome to London rwtw. I'm at the other side on the west, but its a great city. Took me a bit of time to adjust to but I love it now.

Rwtw, London is OK, at least there is transport around, buses every 5 - 10 minutes, trains and the tube, unlike my out in the sticks, every half hour for a train or bus.

LR you are quite right the older you get the more set in your ways and ideas. I have told Mr Steady if he becomes too much like his father I will divorce him.

Hope Solb is doing OK.

By 'eck, good luck with the kitchen, when we had ours done, the temporary kitchen was an old unit in the hallway which had the cutlery draw in and a bit of old worktop over the old fridge and freezer. The kettle, toaster and microwave were used a lot. Planing ahead is a very good idea. Neccessity is the mother of invention is a quote that frequently came to mind.

Got the wrong end of the stick there, rwtw.  Glad that the job move is a positive one and just the in-between bit that's the problem.

Solb was sounding positive last time I spoke to her.  She is having trouble getting on the internet which is why she isn't around much but she is still talking by text.

I've eaten gluten and made myself ill

08/02/2013 at 18:16

Oh dear SuperCaz, have you tried taking probiotic tablets or yoghurt, Mr Steady finds it eases the discomfort when he has eaten gluten.
Glad to hear Solb is OK, thought she might have internet troubles.


08/02/2013 at 18:24

I eat a lot of natural yoghurt CJ

To be honest, this time it is the legthargy and achiness that is the problem rather than my stomach.  My stomach hurts but I can deal with that as long as nobody pisses me off.  My temper might be a little frayed.

08/02/2013 at 18:54

I find Mr Steady to be a bit grumpy, usually he is cross with himself for eating gluten, but just having to wait until the symptoms die down is horrible. (()) if you want them. He reckons knowing the problems if he eats wrong makes him stick to gluten free, he finds walking past a pasty shop torture due to the wafting smells of the pasties.

Someone brought cakes in today.  I wasn't in the least bit tempted as I knew the taste wouldn't be worth the pain.

moo had 3 cornflakes with traces of gluten in last saturday. I think he may have it out of his system now
