Tribe Tales

So there’s 11 “working” days left of the year. You winding down? I used to shut down completely over Christmas. And don’t get me wrong, we have a good break, but I’d have probably given up right about now. We’re half way through December, most people seem to start winding down, so what’s the point? [...]

Litter-picking for the council with chainsaws. Not as a community service, as a challenge to see how much you could get. Twas a competition. I was winning (obviously…) Dreams are weird. Right? I woke up this morning, and all I could do was say “Riiiiight…” and get on with my morning. I suppose if you’re [...]

Yesterday I decided, rather last minute, to get a hair cut. I took the boys with me, and went on a hunt for a suitable place. Their usual place was shut, y’see, and I’ve gone off my old usual/local place. It’s filled more and more with undesirables, holding loud vulgar conversations, and whilst that doesn’t [...]

The breaking news this morning…. …the Wok & Go in Southend has shut down. Oh. My. God. Seriously, that place was amazing. I went there for lunch every single day for … I don’t know how long. Around three/four weeks ago, following a conversation with Phil, I’d decided to cut it out completely from my [...]

So it’s happening. Christmas stuff, everywhere. Don’t get me wrong, I do like Christmas, but… at Christmas time… y’know? I could almost cope with people starting to do Christmas stuff now, but there were companies putting up their Christmas stuff on October 31st. And I guess it can start to get “official” now, as we’re [...]

Do you watch The Apprentice? I’d not watched any this year, until the start of this week. Then I caught up with all the episodes so far. All I can say is, I hope most of the ‘cringeworthiness’ is down to the editing. I’m sure they make it look far more awkward than it is. [...]

Tiny little chunks

Monday and Wednesday are weight training days. Tuesday and Thursday are cardio days. Friday gets a bit of a mix, but is mostly cardio related stuff. Tuesdays and Thursdays used to be rowing, or walking at high incline on the treadmill, but it’s more running than anything now. By Christmas, I’d like to be running [...]
