After work, we had the scare train rehea... Read more
The Zombie Apocalypse is taking shape...
Work today was great. I was in the simulator with Dave, who was dressed as a skeleton with light up gloves, teeth etc. I basically let him get on with it while I drove the train, did Dina twice, drove the train some more and then left him to it ... Read more
The zombie apocalypse meeting, at work
Work went well. The swing ride (Wave rider) in the morning. I kept nice and warm by sweeping the puddles away from under the ride, so, on the offchance of customers, feet would stay dry. I had about 18 guests ride, over the course of about 6 or ... Read more
Nice bike ride today, in the autumn sun.
As I haven't done my 50km challenge ride for October, I thought that I'd get it in today. My next day off is the 31st October and there is no guarantee that the weather will be half decent. I really want to stay in the challenge so thought that ... Read more
Home from work and having a cuppa
I have had a lovely couple of days at work. Yesterday, I was due to work the Viking Ship, the big swing ship thing. However, it was out of action until 2pm so I worked 'Park' which is raking, train driving, breaking other rides for people to go ... Read more
Friday and a day in the flat for me.
I did get out and walk the dogs 3 times today, not huge ones like yesterday though.
Kenn was at dialysis and I went off to the co-op, had a panic attack, came home and hid on the sofa. On an 'anxiety day', the sofa is the best place to be.

Waiting in for a phone call.
This morning, Kenn rang about his disability benefit, again. They promised money by Tuesday but nothing, not even a letter. They said they would ring back by noon so we walked the dogs to the vet for Toffee's booster. There is phone net... Read more

Monday and it's home cleaning day
Today we hired a Rug Doctor carpet cleaner and Kenn did the living room, while I went off and had a meeting with the council people about the debacle with my council tax. Nothing resolved but no change there. I got home and Kenn had done all the... Read more
Fun day at work
Today at work I was due to work the log flume and the big drop tower, one of the chaps was down for Swampy & Dina Land, the 4 little rides for younger kids, so we swapped. When there are just 2 of us, working 4 rides, the day flies.
Today I w... Read more
Wet and windy day
Weather was vile today, windy, wet, cold and horrible. I didn't even want to be out long enough to put the bins out, let alone exercise in it, so I didn't.
Not feeling the love of anything today. However, I might have accidentally bought my... Read more
Slightly better day today
Hmm, still didn't get any cycling in but I braved the scales and I'm 8lb less than I was the last time that I dared to get on them, so going back in the right direction.
Kenn took Dylan, the pup to the vet for his vaccies today. I didn't go... Read more
Banging my head against a wall!!
Eating wise, it's been pretty good. The middle of the day was a bit interesting as I was making my salad, in my special salad bowl, my neighbour arrived. Yes, I know it's sad but I do have a special bowl for making a salad as it's the perfect si... Read more
Today I have braved the city! Need a little lie down now.
It's been a mixed day today. Kenn was off on dialysis so we walked the dogs first and then popped to the co-op for some spinach and almond milk for me and regular milk for Kenn.
He went off to the hospital and I went off to Truro, with my n... Read more
Dear Lord, I'm getting old
Firstly, the Christian Yank lady who INSISTS that I should be in church every sunday, when she clearly isn't found my by 11am. Yet again I pointed out that I was pretty sure that God understands why I am not at church, on account of feeding my h... Read more
