So this month I have been as sick as a dog. Battling a cold for all of. I picked up this cold and it was killing me at work. I knew I just had to get to the end of the week and I had a weeks leave. So got to my week off and I was dead. Normally if I get a cold it lasts maybe 24 hours, this thing was going on for 2+ weeks and my throat was killing me, like seriously I was dropping ibuprofen and paracetamol to the max dosage and was still fucked up.
So I said to The Sam if I’m still like this on Tuesday I will go to the doctors, (which as a man you know is a big no-no). So Tuesday came and I’m still messed up. Go to the doctor and she examines me and says “Sir you have a cold” then proceeds to draw me a diagram of how a cold work. This is the point that I’d wished the earth would swallow me up. So, I go home, wake up the next morning and feel fine… And also like a complete pussy. So went out for the day and the next day got on with plastering the bedroom. Next day I wake up and have a cold again!! Fucking perfect. So I’m practically dead, get into bed that night, laying on my back and The Sam pokes my stomach feels my biceps and says “Are you going to the gym tomorrow” Are you fucking kidding me! Jesus woman you are lucky you can’t catch man flu.. If there was a priest here he would be giving me my last rites and you are giving some snide comment about being fat. Mother Fu@@@er.
Cutting – Something Has To Go
To be fair I normally cut a lot earlier in the year and by the time of my first sunburn I have a decent body. But with a hectic time and work and trying to get this blog off the ground I have neglected the gym. Also, my weakness for Haribo has not helped the cause. So time to cut. The only option is the carbs need to go. They are out, I’m back on the nutri bullet for breakfast and then heavy protein and veggies, followed by beasting it at the gym. Normally I’m hard on the gym from January but I have never been this out of shape this close to summer so let us see what we can do????
There Is Always Cooking
So it is that time of year again at work where we change over the menu for the client. Coming into the Spring Summer Rotation. This means pulling around 15 dishes from the pool of around 120 and preparing them for a client tasting session. It is a killer of a job and the whole kitchen pretty much gets involved to smash it out. Here is their tasting menu we did this season. Not too bad for a lunch menu if I say so myself.
eBay Is A Hell Of A Way To Spend Money
So I have been buying new models for a while so thought I would give buying them on auction a try and see if I could say a bit of money. I haven’t made out too badly. Picked up a nice little stash and have saved a fair bit of money than buying new. One I picked up brand new, still wrapped and saved over £20 on what it is selling new. The only problem with eBay is it is pretty addictive, and you can quite easily run up a bit of a tab. More Of That HERE. One Thing to note, when buying reference books online, check the dimensions.
Days Out In Kent – Folkstone
Starting to explore the local area and a good chance to try out the new camera. Luckily we both had the week off before Easter and we tripped off down to the seaside for the day. About an hours drive down to Folkstone in Kent. We went down on the day before Good Friday to beat the crowds, we got down there about 11 in the morning parked up near the seafront and went for a stroll.
We walked all the way along the beach and then picked up a portion of chips and sat on a bench looking out to sea. Which is probably the most British thing you can do. Strolling back up to the car we found a lovely little bar and stopped off for a drink.
Next onto the creative quarter where The Sam found a little Vegan coffee shop where we stopped for some Carrot Cake & Kentish Perry.
From there we looked around the cute little shops until they closed for the evening. Then after a hard days walking we nipped in for a cheeky half!
To end the day a lovely handmade pizza with ham olives and mushroom and of course a Vegan version for The Sam.
A slow drive home and then to finish the night off we pulled out the deck and picked a little UK Garage!
So my boy did it, I have to be honest I was exhausted after that match. Probably the best match of Wrestlemania, that being said I had a lot invested into that storyline and it was a real rollercoaster ride and such a well put together match. In general, though is Wrestlemania getting too long? With the pre-show is it like 6-7 hours now? Good to see Hogan at the start. The Seth-Brock Title change was a great way to start the event, but by the time the girls get their thing on to finish the night I was really burnt out. Oh, and I’m probably one of the only people who were happy that the Iiconics won the belts. I just love Peyton on the mic, you will never be as good as Hell Alexa Bliss, but I really enjoy her.
