2 January 2022 (Sunday) - Feeling Grim

I felt like death warmed up when I went to bed at nine o’clock yesterday. I rather suspected I’d had sunstroke. No New Year’s Day? I shivered and sweated for an hour or two, then finally got to sleep waking some twelve hours later. with a bit of a headache.

I opened my new razor blade (that I didn’t open yesterday), and once I’d scraped I made some toast and as I scoffed I peered into the Internet. There were a lot of “Attended” logs from yesterday’s meet-up. Pretty much everyone was of the opinion that it was good to catch up with old friends, and we all want to continue doing so. There were quite a few “Found It” logs on geocaches that I’ve hidden (all saying good things) as well. That was a result.


With rain forecast for later we thought we’d walk the dogs early, so we went round the park. We had a rather good walk with no “episodes” whatsoever; “er indoors TM”’s idea of giving each dog a tennis ball to carry certainly seems to distract them.

It was only a shame that the rain came two hours early when we were only half way round the park.


We came home where (once we’d dried off) I ironed shirts whilst we watched the “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” documentary. It wasn’t what I thought it might be… just two hours of various actors saying how much they loved each other. I don’t know what I had been expecting, but I had been expecting more than that.

Although I was feeling better than I had been last night, I was still feeling a tad fragile, and so just slobbed on the sofa for the rest of the afternoon whilst “Carry On Girls”, “Carry On Dick” and “Carry On At Your Convenience” played on ITV2. Whilst they were funny back in the day, they’ve not stood the test of time, and I spent much of the afternoon fast asleep whilst the Carry On gang carried on doing their thing. I eventually woke to find that “er indoors TM” had turned the telly to the Food Network.


Still feeling rather listless I sparked up my lap-top and spent half an hour peering at Google Street Views of Folkestone Harbour trying to solve a puzzle geocache. I eventually got the right answer, but it took some getting.


“er indoors TM” boiled up a very good bit of dinner which we scoffed whilst watching the second episode of the new series of “Lego Masters: Australia” in which the contestants spent ten hours making some very good models which they then blew up. It was rather good.

I’m feeling better than I was but still feeling a tad bleugh. Perhaps a good night’s sleep might sort me out?
