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 6/52

Week 6

Weekly Rating: 7/10

Highlight: Kicking on with my rehab.

Lowlight: The distinctly average adverts from the Super Bowl, normal there are at least 3 that are awesome, but no luck this year.

Felt: Pain but its a good pain, the type of pain you have inflicted on yourself(not getting cutty I mean when you push yourself).

Watched: Utopia, Suits, Grey’s Anatomy, J.Edgar and The Rum Diary. If you haven’t seen The Rum Diary, I completely forgot how hot Amber Heard is, apart from that the film is ok, but really she is gorgeous.

Read: The Lost Symbol and a paper by Cass Business School and the Pensions Institute called A Healthier Way to De-Risk, it was riveting as you could imagine.

Visited: Work, Physio Wembley and a Curry House. I saw England play for the first time and we beat Brazil, which was nice.

Want: A snow week, and a snow Birthday.

Need: to stop pushing to hard.

Miss: Being young and partying until 6 in the morning.

Learnt: Very little about the de-risking of pension schemes, far to high academia for me.


My State on Sunday 4/52

Week 4, I know it’s late but yesterday I was too hungover to move.

 Weekly Rating: 4/10

Highlight: Belly laughs with friends.

Lowlight: Spending an hour and a half waiting for a train in the snow. It never came.

Felt: Frustrated and Blind. Once again the NHS and medical admin made me want to kill and I had an eye infection to boot.

Watched: After a snow day on Monday and then an eye infection, 3 days off meant I was able to watch Hanna and Gone, and become increasing obsessed with The Killing and Suits.

Read: nothing much, this week was very lazy and having a skanky eye didn’t help.

Visited: Doctor, Work, Physio and the Pub.

Want: A sleeping bag suit, they look so warm.


Need: Answers.

Miss: Waking up in the morning without a stiff…. knee. Rehab might be going well but it’s a real ball ache.

Learnt: A roll neck jumper does not have a collar*, WHO KNEW *according to a bouncer at an establishment with a strict dress code policy of shirt collars only.


My State on Sunday 3/52

Week 3 and it was time to go back to work.. 

Weekly Rating: 5/10

Felt: Knackered, returning to work has really taken it out of me. The commute has been ridiculously hard work, especially on Tuesday morning when the arseholes on my train decided I didn’t need a seat.

Watched: I have mainly been sleeping but I have watched some Grey’s Anatomy, Suits and squeezed in The Killing, the more I watch this, the greater my love for Sarah Lund’s Jumper is. No Films this week, there was far too much sport on; cricket, rugby and football and of course the ridiculous Lance Armstrong interviews. They were unbelievably overhyped and failed to add any information on the doping/cheating. Oprah failed to show any journalistic skills, which is unsurprising given she is a chat show host who pandered to a highly rehearsed Armstrong, who hit his lines and spotted his cues perfectly.

Read: Caught up on PR Week at work and then spent the weekend relaxing with GQ and the papers. Medical letters, ALL THE MEDICAL LETTERS, I have been sorting through all of my medical notes to try and put some order to my records

Visited: Work, Physio, Surgeon and my friends came to me.

Want: I want the snow to mean I get a day off, not that I will be slipping on ice with a recovering knee.

Need: More Sleep, going back to work has taken it out of me; my body is knackered after the commute. But hopefully if the snow allows I can get back to the gym this week.

Miss:Sunshine, for the past few days the sky has been covered in cloud day and night.

Learnt: Where to place my priorities and the Percy’s Pig Sty contains sweets in the shape of things that definitely wouldn’t be in a pig sty, like crowns and clocks.
