Up very early (or at least it felt very early and was still dark). Took dog walk and fetched papers. Got Phil up. Polished shoes for household (should have done that yesterday but was a bit jiggered. Shave, shower, breakfast. Watered plants in mini-greenhouse. Took Doug six tomato plants. Into office for 8:30. Long day today though - going to a group in Kirby-in-Ashfield after work. Got to work and learned that Geoff Whitworth has passed away on Friday night - such a shock, lovely bloke only in his early 60s as well. After work normal I did a group visit up to Kirkby - got away about 8:30 and learnt some useful stuff. Three bowls of cereal before bedtime wasn't a good move but such is life.
Tuesday 1st April 2014
Up at 5.45am. Dog walked, papers fetched, Phil got up. Watered stuff. Got bike stuff in car to ride in from Belper. 10 miles in a second under 54 minutes (with stops at traffic lights, roundabouts, junctions all over the place). Never mind can't beat cycling to work. Cycled back - got held up all over the place, took a smidge under 52 minutes but not end of the world.
Wednesday 2nd April 2014
Only 10 days and a bit to go to London Marathon 2014 and weight is not coming off in time! Yikes. Will get it done whatever but it's going to be closer to six hours than five I fear. Never mind, reap as ye sow and all that. Got up at 5:50 - really had to drag myself out of bed - could do with an early night! Took dog up town and got the papers. Got shaved, showered and into work for 8.20am - lots to get done. Group after work - another 1.5lbs gone but tough work - this final week is going to be 100% commitment - no rubbish just back to the old ways! Could really do with moving 4.5lbs to get me to where I was in 2010 marathon - that would be a real confidence booster but a bit unlikely!
Thursday 3rd April 2014
Up early dog walked, papers fetched - the usual. Then off to Diane Copley's group in Kirkby-in-Ashfield to sort some tech problems out. Then back to the office in sunny Alfreton. Lots of good stuff covered off and home in goodish time too. Good day food optimising-wise, I hope anyway.
Friday 4th April 2014
Up at silly o'clock as Phil's phone alarm went off downstairs, thanks very much Phil. Dog walked, papers fetched did I mention nine days until the marathon - yikes! It will be fine and when it's done the running shoes will be hung up for all eternity (actually might sell em on eBay!!). Anyroad, loaded car up and then cycled into work as I like to do from time to time. Got stopped at every set of lights along the way - what a pain. Got there for almost exactly 9am but enjoyed the ride and that's what counts.
Saturday 5th April 2014
Up a bit late as waited for missus to come back from hospital as brother-in-law has gone back in. Got up took dog walk. Got Lucy up and ready for football. Went up town to get Phil a photo for his Visa application. Taking him to US Embassy in London for his visa interview next week. Noticed over last few days that there is some work going on up at top of road for BT Openreach - hopefully they're uprating the exchange with fibre - we'll see. Current bandwidth is a bit over 3mbits.

Sunday 6th April 2014
Up early. Dog walked. Fetched new loo seats from Homebase. Fitted the beggars. Watered stuff. Went up in attic to find receipt for toaster failed. Took dog on another four walks over the day. Visited me mum and dad for tea with Phil and Lucy, bosskat at Derby city Hospital.
