A whingey United fan & a helpful Liverpool one…

Last night fresh from celebrating the launch (see yesterday’s
post) of the new domain name “McFinkle”, the website found itself temporarily crippled
with technical issues.  As I sat watching
TV my blog was caught between being the victim of much friendly fire from a
whingey United fan on one hand and helped out with domain issues by an old
friend and Liverpool fan on the other. (Thanks to Stephen Cousins who owns BlueCubes, a web design company, a different friend and company to the one
mentioned a number of posts ago)
Thankfully this evening all issues seem to have resolved
themselves and “McFinkle” seems to be firing on all four.  A fortnight ago the needle queen suggested
moving my acupuncture appointments to a fortnightly basis.  Due to return tomorrow I can report that this
past week I have slowly been grinding to a halt and can’t wait for her to stick
a pin in me.
It’s been a peculiar couple of days.  I’m fine in the morning managing a swim with
the chunkies and even a small walk with the dog.  Then in the afternoon after lunch a sickness
and fatigue sets in.  Is it a bug, over
doing it, the junk stubbornly insisting on staying in my diet or as I say too
long between visits to the queen?
Introducing my good friend Ben to the chunky dunkers…
I am really enjoying the swims and I believe they are
helping.  The banter and comradery is
outstanding with my new found friends and I must say you leave feeling exhilarated
by it! My heart is telling me that I should be out swimming every day come
rain, hail or shine however my head and body are saying stick to the plan.  At this stage the plan is to walk the dog a
mile every day, to do 1 pilates class a week, 2 -3 swims and if all is ok the
icing on the cake, a small bike ride. 
Truth told this is a lot.  I’m
pushing too hard to go beyond that, the plan is my energy at its absolute max. I
need to learn contentment with where I am and to consolidate what I have
achieved.

I have selected an album for the week and so if you have
the free music streaming app “Spotify” You can listen to Seafret’s last
offering “Tell me its real”.  I really like it.  My son Gee-Dubs is coming home for the
weekend and so expect stories of me being victorious at pool and the eating of
ice lollipops whilst watching 80’s TV. I also have a cracking blog post coming
up staring my nephew “The Lionheart”… keep your eyes peeled!   You know I spoil you guys… talk soon!!
