Ashes to ashes.

The old me is gone, the new me seems to be grappling with demons, trying to claw his way out of the quagmire of self loathing and regret! Every now and then, like an expensive prostitue or a half decent illicit drug, I can feel the tug of the darkness on my cape of stupidity and have to grit my teeth to stay out of its clutches!

Enough of that shite! Today (Well this morning) has been ‘double’ busy! Winding up the old apple laptop (blowing the dust off and downloading the updates) I opened him and immediately began my book! The first few pages are done and look rather good actually! And a little more thought has gone into the title! It was going to be ‘slide to open’ but I think a more appropriate ‘Twist to Open’ will suffice. (If you’re in the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) you will understand)   

So the first pages are sorted! The title is sorted, my first steps to a degree in being a clever Bugger is sorted. It’s been good, but wait, there’s more. As of yesterday my left ear decided it didn’t want to play nice, instead it wasted to be yucky, sucky and down right hurty! It’s closed itself and made me half deaf (the last time this happened I was stuck in Thailand for an extra week after a deep dive in dirty water off Koh Makk island) this time…. No diving! 

So the nurse was called and she gave me a look of disgust (a 47 year old ex soldier nearly in tears because of ear ache) sprays were administered and prescriptions were filled out! I hate ears! She also told me about my constantly bloody nose (a fact that I have hidden from the doctor for a couple of years now) her advice? Pick it! Don’t blow it as this will traumatise the blood vessels that I have already destroyed 🙄 BUGGER!  

So sitting in a coffee shop with a piece of hanky sticking out me ear trying to keep far too much liquid from spilling onto me ‘Help for Heros’ top, drinking a strong coffee and writing notes in me new pocket book (ALWAYS look at the prices of these things before purchase, I didn’t and a little book cost me a tenner) I look a right state! All I need is a blanket or a warm towel to hold against me face! 

Today is a good day (so far), me car goes into the garage to get a squeak sorted (an after thought of a recent service by said garage) so the costs should be minimal. I must only ring the University now to see what courses I need to look at on my access thingy then it’s all done. Catterick later in the week then another visit to another therapist. As far as other stuff goes, well it just goes 🙂 keep those smiles up high guys, the roller coaster is heading for a declined bit of track soon I’m sure 🙂
