Sunday 26th December 2010 to Saturday January 1st 2011!

Sunday 26th December 2010
Tired from Christmasness and Ashes on Boxing day starting in early hours. Really pleased to see England comprehensively take Australia apart at 98 all out and then ease past them in style with Strauss and Cook putting on the runs without losing a wicket in the first day. Class

Monday 27th December 2010
Absolutely wiped out went to bed at 1:30 after watching start of Ashes, went to bed with Trott and Pietersen in place, woke up and Trott and Prior in but putting on the runs so okay. Still in control of this test and punter is losing it so all's good. Went for a run up town and back. Need to get back in to it. Too much weight gone on in 2010. Watched Avatar for second time in two days - bloomin magic film.

Tuesday 28th December 2010
Got up before dawn cracked to watch a bit of crickey. Not much to report on exercise front - ran up town and back in the morning as seems to be my new norm.

Wednesday 29th December 2010
Was up to watch end of ashes but only sort of. Went to bed, got up at 11:30, sort of watched the cricket in between nodding off - reckon I saw 20 minutes out of the hour and a half or so it took to finish the aussies off but at least I saw the last wicket which was nice. Then up at 6:45, ran up town and back then off to work. Brought a ton of drum pollution home with me from work. All good.

Thursday 30th December 2010
Same as yesterday but with no cricket! Ran up town and back then off to work. Got some good stuff done and then brought rest of them drums home. Good.

Friday 31st December 2010
Well couldn't get much tireder. Ran up town and back though so same old, same old to a degree but with added tiredness. Then waited for hours for horror to wake up and when he did we got a new satellite dish installed - which was easy apart from lining the bugger up - would recommend one of them signal meters I reckon if did it again. Any road it's all working now and we got a telly working upstairs for missus so she can't moan about not being able to watch what she wants no more. ha ha.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 15th December 2010
Quick run up town and back. Need to start getting my house in order and no mistake.

Sunday 12th December 2010
Can't sleep at the moment, I know why but little I can do about it. Anway, up at 4am so did a few emails and then went out for a run. Did five miles this morning - haven't gps'd it as am waiting for a new strap for the 405cx. Anyway was slow but under an hour. Been a bit of a keen frost overnight but a lovely morning for getting out on your own - clear sky and stars out for millions of miles. Nice.

Sunday 5th December 2010 to Saturday 11th December 2010


Saturday 11th December 2010
Ran up town and back. Did a ton of tidying up and then took Lucy to SW Head Office Kids party which was nice. Lucy's last one unfortunately.

Friday 10th December 2010
Same again barman, up town and back.

Thursday 9th December 2010
Warmer again - didn't even need me had and gloves this morning. Pretty much ran up town and back to get papers, still a fair bit of pavement jumping but that's to be expected I suppose!

Wednesday 8th December 2010
Felt a bit warmer this morning I thought. Walk/Ran up town in similiar fashion to yesterday jumping back onto pavement when traffic approached, running on road when all clear - speeds things up tremendously. Got to work and missus rings up and says pipes burst in utility room - am I pi$$ed off with this bloody cold snap? Yes I bleedin am. Such is life, got some training to do this morning and then the annual rehearsal for Christmas Madness as i like to call it.

Tuesday 7th December 2010
I think I was up at midnight watching Ashes but am not sure - how wierd is that. Anyway got up at 5am to see whether the Aussies were still hanging on in there and as normal went to fill kettle for a cup of full strength coffee. No Water. So went to stop tap to begin sorting problem out and the stop tap was frozen so got hair dryer on it which freed the stop tap. However, water not back on unfortunately. Went up town and back to get papers - even did a bit of running on the main which was good but had to keep changing from one side of road to t'other to avoid traffic which took some of the fun out of it.

So have left oil-filled radiator working next to the stop tap pipe and come into work - car said minus 14 degrees centigrade at 7:15 this morning, have got missus putting a hot water bottle on the pipe which will hopefully help - had forgotten that top tip untuil I was almost in the office. such is life eh.

Left office early, bought a halogen heater got pipes going again. Happy days. Went to Lucy's school do in the evening which was most enjoyable.

Monday 6th December 2010
Got up at 5am, watched some more Ashes. Rain stopped play, walked up town and back to fetch papers. Got back for about ten to seven, had brekko and watched Ashes - magic. Cold is unreal it's -14 degrees centigrade according to my motor at 7am.

Sunday 5th December 2010
Next to nowt achieved today - got up at 4am, watched more excellent England cricket, took Phil to work, fetched him back from work. Helped other parents clear snow over at Clifton Primary School. Took phil back to work in the afternoon, picked him up at 7ish after work (he must be knackered bless him) went to bed early, got up at midnight watched ashed til 1:30am
