Rent-a-Tent Man

Rent-a-Tent Man (not me)This supposed “wind down” before holiday season isn’t working out as planned; I’m as exhausted as ever and feel like all I want to do is close my eyes for a month. On the bus to the day job this morning, I went most of the way with my eyes closed, wishing I could bypass the tired buzzing in my head and just go to sleep. It’s only the knowledge that in a couple of days I’ll be in Blackpool with my mate and then off to Rhodes for a fortnight’s relaxation that’s keeping me going – well, that and the motivation to get to the end of Slick.

Anyway, I got a lot done. I had to sacrifice my Writers’ Group in the evening because I really want to get Slick complete, and I also had to get most of my holiday clothes sorted out for Blackpool and Rhodes. Total pain that last bit but it had to be done.

The main problem I have is because I’ve lost so much weight, most of my good clothes hang off me now and I look like I’m wearing clothes bought from Rent-a-Tent. On the plus side there is a whole bag of clothes that were bought for me that I’ve never been able to get into before – that I can now. Most of them have gone out of fashion now but I never was into that anyway. I much prefer looking like a tramp. People leave me alone that way, LOL!

Today had my final session with Ailis, my osteopath. Over the last few weeks she got my out of some major turmoil with my leg/hip, and thanks to her I was able to enjoy Rome and am now walking freely again. It’s a pain I’ll not forget in a hurry, so I’ll definitely be keeping up with my exercises and staying a well-stretched out bloke as much as I can. Combined with my weight loss, I’ve never felt better.
