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

Read: Who Cares Wins; it is starting to feel very like a textbook.

Visited: Work, hospital, pubs, the gym, and friends.

Need: to find all the TV series and films I am going to watch while I am laid up in bed recovering.

Miss: being able to remember the whole of a night out

Learnt: you can’t make the world spin faster.

Weekly Rating: 6/10

Highlight: having an absolute stormer at work, reminding me why I love the buzz of my job

Lowlight: Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Felt: On fire.

Watched:. Rock of Ages, what a ridiculous film. I also caught Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory and Cougar Town, American trash TV is the best kind.

My State on Sunday 12/52

Weekly Rating: 2/10

Highlight: the 24 hours I didn’t feel like death in a jar

Lowlight: Everything

Felt: like death, warmed, shaken and stirred.

Watched: Ill Manors, good but nothing more, State of Play, Four Brothers and Waiting for Forever, which is pretty poo. I also caught Grey’s Anatomy and Our Girl on the beeb which was pretty good, shame it was only a one-off drama.

Read: The Fear Index, lots of public relations blogs

Visited: Work, physio and my sick bed, it used to be known as my bed but as asked for a name change due to poor treatment.

Want: to have a short week, oh wait hang on there are two back to back. FTW

Need: to take a chill pill, my temper is shorter than Warwick Davis at the moment.

Miss: Sunshine and warmth, snow in March is not fun or clever, even rain would be better than this chill.

Learnt: I can run again, well jog lightly and meander a little bit.

My State on Sunday 11/52

Weekly Rating: 8/10

Highlight: Going out 3 nights in a row like I am some sort of student

Lowlight: feeling like death after going out 3 nights in a row like I am some sort of student

Felt: like death at the start of the week and unstoppable by the end, well apart from Sunday when I felt like death again

Watched: The Girl who played with Fire, a good film but not as good as the first in the series, Dragon Tattoo. I also caught up on The Big Bang Theory and Grey’s Anatomy.

Read: The Fear Index, still not making much of a dent in this.

Visited: Work, L’Escargot, a friend’s place in Crouch End, which is in the middle of nowhere, Pubs and a House party in Aldgate East, very random.

Want: to sleep forever, getting home in the early hours has taken its toll.

Need: A new liver, after this weekend I think my current one can be written off for scrap

Miss: Sunshine, has anyone seen a big baking orange circle that use to live in the sky, I would like it to return at work its wonders.

Learnt: Traipsing across London is probably my biggest pet hate, especially when I am hungover and it’s raining.
