Jack Reacher

I'm slightly hooked on reading. Yes, if you know me you knew this.

When I get into a book it's hard to get me out of it. Well, if it's even remotely well written/entertaining, that is.

When I was younger it was impossible to even get my attention when I was reading... I'm not so bad now (if I was I wouldn't dare read whilst walking to work!!) but I do love it.

Currently I'm stuck on Lee Child novels. Mike's dad's lent me all of the (I think it's all of them!) Jack Reacher novels and they're great. Y'kno, not exactly a masterpiece ("Jack Reacher. Men want to be him. Women want to be with him.") but very entertaining.

If only...

This looks really good. I don't have any kind of drawing/sketching talent but I'd love to do it... Hmmm...

I just walked past a clock and did a filmic double take. I'm sure it said 10 to 4. I wondered how on earth that was possible; did I fall asleep on the sofa again? Nope. It's only 20 past 10 and I'm already knackered.

Must be old age.

Rain on me.

I've had a productive weekend. And very pleasant too! The nice weather helped.

Finally cleared out the spare room - chucked out a desk, too. It's looking a bit more like a room and less like a dumping ground. Though let's face it. It is a dumping ground.

Today it's raining. But luckily I got lifts both to and from work so survived - and my book didn't even get wet!

Gym bunny.

Last night I dreamt I joined a gym in York and one in Stockholm. Rather pointless really. But is my subconscious trying to tell me something about moving back to Sweden..?

Phobia cure.

I was in the staff room at work today, and by the sink were a set of keys. One of the keyrings was a spider in resin. I had to look both twice and three times before I was sure - because why on earth?! I asked my colleague if it was really a spider. She said yep, it's a way to 'top up' the cure of a previous phobia.

Ew ew ew. I think I'd rather be afraid.

Find your own way.

I don't get it. It's so easy to write. It's so.. natural. I keep thinking I don't have the time, but to be honest, I do. I just need to plan better, sleep less? Read less, be less lazy.

I wish there was an easy way to write whilst walking. Don't say pen&paper - I won't be able to read my squiggles...

I need to nail down this routine thing. I need to get better at getting up in the morning. I need to find a way to stop getting ill all the time.

So far this morning two people have said I don't look well. But I can't take another day off work; sick days are a bit of a no-no in the real world, if I've understood it all right. Sure, if I'm ill I should stay home. Both to get myself better and to make sure no one else catches whatever lurgy I've got. But when you're ill this much? Ridiculous. Clearly, I need a job where I can work from home.

Trip back to the doctor's is probably a good idea. But they'll just tell me to get more fresh air and exercise. Blahblahblah.

Anyway. Oh, and yes. I'm writing this from work. Lunch break, I think it's called...

Wow, it turned into another moan. Sorry!

I'm so bored of being ill. Again and again and again. I know what you're gonna say - exercise and fresh air. Well, I walk about an hour and a half every day. Not exactly heavy exercise, I know, but it's more than I used to do.

I have also always been told this would help with my headaches. 'Pah!' is all I have to say to that! It's no better.

Might as well move really close to work and never walk anywhere or go outside or do anything healthy.

I AM going to work tomorrow.
