A Day in the Life of...
Logziella commented that she enjoys reading blogs about every day life, so here is one of from me.
Woke up in the morning to the sound of our local radio station. Thankfully they have replaced the idiot that was driving me insane a while ago, so this is not too bad. As I try to achieve full consciousness an Anastacia song comes on. I love her voice and this gets me moving a bit faster.
For breakfast I have a bowl of a new cereal that the kids have been raving about. I can't see anything special about it, but as it is a good healthy one I encourage them to eat it. I will go for something else in the future.
When I leave home I walk with my eldest son until he joins up with some friends for the rest of the trip to school, then I head for work. My mobile rings. It is my wife telling me that I have left my shirt behind, so I go back home for it before resuming my journey to work.
I am only half way there when the traffic grinds to a halt. It turns out that they have dug up the road in Canterbury, causing a 3-4 mile tailback. Still, this does not slow me down as much as it does the cars, so I am only a couple of minutes late for work.
At lunchtime I phone my wife to discover that we are in trouble with the bank because part of my regular income has not been paid in. It has taken her 2 hours to hopefully get it sorted out. Good job it is pay day soon!
After work I stay in Canterbury for the evening as it is wargames day. Dinner is at the local Mexican place that I go to a lot, the lure of cheese nachos and jalapenos is just too much for me!
Then off to meet the guys for an evening of toy soldiers. We are trying out a new game that is designed to recreate ancient Greek warfare. My game started off OK but things rapidly went wrong for me - even my general got killed, turning defeat into a catastrophe. An interesting game that we will come back to again!
Then it is time to head home. The road still has works in place, so most of the traffic seems to have taken a different route, which is great for me. Not needing to keep checking for cars I get home very quickly, grab a sandwich, make a fuss of the dog, freshen up and flop into bed.
So there you have it, a day in the life of me!
