I only went and cooked today!

Hold the front page, I only went and cooked today! Work was busy but I got to leave early to meet Toni for an appointment that she needed to attend. When we got hime she was feeling absolutely knackered.


I had to work for a bit when we got in and Toni was napping and also feeling hungry. Once I'd finished I headed to the kitchen to offer to cook..... and I did. We had mushroom dogs, courgette, broccoli, spinach and mash. It was bloody lovely. It doesn't happen very often bit it's nice to know that I can still cook when I need to.

Our evening was spent having a Preacher binge as we plough our way through season two.

Late start, productive day and QI

It was a struggle to get up this morning and as Sam was off for another week I decided to go in later. It was nice to not have to rush. My throat was still a little tight but the rest of me felt fine.

It was a good day, busy but productive and as the hours rolled on I started to feel better and better which was a great relief.

Got home to find that Toni had been suffering from the lungs all day which was less good.

We spent the evening eating Indian food, drinking tea and watching many episodes of QI.

Feeling meh, recover day

Woke up today feeling a bit meh. Throat was a bit croaky and I felt cold and tired.

Fish fingers for breakfast helped a little bit and we watched some Jack Whitehall standup with was funny. I crashed out part way through.

Toni had to take some bit over to Jade and Aaron's so I helped her load the car and while she was out I ended up putting on extra laters and an additional heater to try and make myself feel a bit better.

I indulged in a nice cuppa and some sweets and then watched some NXT rasslin' and part of a horror film called The Landlord (which I'll have to finish another time as Toni came back LOL). I was feeling much better by the time Toni returned though which was a good thing.

We breezed through Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father which turned out to be quite an amusing set of shows. Some of it was cringeworthy but it also carried some fun and emotional bits too. Well worth a watch for a travel series with a difference.

We finished the day by giving the Netflix series Borgia a go. Not to be confused with the excellent The Borgias show this one gave a different spin on the same subject matter. It wasn't a great spin so we probably won't be seeing that one out LOL.

Sam returned home from a trip to Nottingham so we had a catch up, watched some Hell's Kitchen and Marvel's Runaways.

By the end of the day I was feeling much better thankfully so it looks like I'll be back to work as normal tomorrow.

Sega fun day

Sam and I had a Sega fun day today.


We burned out way through World Of Illusion and then had great fun with the Golden Axe series. We don't really get much opportunity to game together so this was a welcome bit of time together.

A proper day off, secret stuff, Ziyafet and Pitch Perfect

I had a day off today. It was a proper day off with no sneaky bits of working. Just a full day off! Woohoo!

Toni and I went out for the day to do something quite exciting that will be revealed later. We had a great time though :)

Toni and I went to Ziyafet with Jade, Aaron and Ryan for a yummy dinner. Can't go wrong with the food there and we had a good time.

On our return home Toni retired to the bathtub and I indulged in Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2. Toni was not a big fan of the first one so watched it alone. Zoe came back from her role playing club we watched the second one together. We don't seem to be able to convince Toni that she needs to come and see the third one at the cinema though LOL.

Didn't want to get up, busy day, lasagne and TV catch up

I really didn't want to get up today. I was pretty tired after School Of Rock and could quite happily have stayed in bed. Sadly this was not an option so I dragged my carcass off to work.

It was a fairly busy day but I was slowly winding down as I am off tomorrow. New team is slowly coming together and processes are starting to take shape which is good.

Got home to a massive lasagne for dinner so I was delighted.

We then caught up with Lucifer, The Blacklist and the new series of The X-Files.

School Of Rock #SchoolOfRockUK #SchoolOfRock

I scored a serious win today as dad sent me a text saying that they had a spare ticket to see School Of Rock tonight at New London Theatre due to Joy no longer being able to make it!

We had excellent seats:

The show was absolutely brilliant. It was much better than I had expected it to be. The songs and lyrics were very clever and the whole cast were great. The kids play their instruments for real which was most impressive and the final 'gig' was just like being at a rock show. They even let you take photo!

Rocking out before we said our goodbyes:

Here's what it's all about:
