My State on Sunday 20/52

Weekly Rating: 7/10

Highlight: Getting signed off work for 3 weeks

Lowlight: having a terrible night’s sleep after my operation. Snoring can be outrageously loud on a hospital ward

Felt: Swollen, it’s not as bad as it has been after previous operations but I still look like Hey Arnold

Watched: Veep, New Girl, Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy and Twilight Breaking Dawn Part Two, who this film is bad, that is weirdest looking kid I have ever seen. Oh and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, WOW is the only word to describe it.

Heard: Lots and lots of podcasts

Read: Who Cares Wins by David Jones and How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran

Visited: Work, Pub, Doctors, Hospital.

Want: to make some decisions on which TV series I want to watch while I recover, there is so much choice. I’m thinking The Wire, Mad Men, The Pacific and The Kennedys

Need: to relax and recover, it is time to watch films and TV series, read books and eat soft food.

Miss: having to get on my train every morning and stand for between twenty-eight minutes and two hours travelling to work. NHAWTT

Learnt: My legs are too long for hospital beds and Caitlin Moran’s chapter on starting her period was pretty disgusting and slightly insightful

Pavement Etiquette

The pavements of London are become an increasingly frustrating place, and I hereby declare I will not be submissive any longer.

I will no longer stop if you are in my path, if I walk into you it is your fault as much as mine.

For the third time this week I have been tutted for getting in someone’s way, the cheek of it. Those people were also in my way as well and I cowered to a stop to let them pass. Well no longer, from this day forth I shall never* cower or give way to other pedestrians. I am not partial to being bumped and pushed around on the pavement and get very annoyed at being tutted at. So tut you too.

Also on a side point if you are under 5’7” please do not use an umbrella near me. Short people have an amazing ability to use umbrellas as blinkers. This without fail results in me getting poked in the face or neck with a spoke. I am more than happy to shelter your hobbity world with my umbrella, as long as you don’t poke me with yours.

Don’t even get me started on wheel bags!!!!!!


*I will obviously give way to the elderly, pregnant women and children/buggies, and more than likely hot women, but everybody else NEVER.
