Just Keep Swimming

IMG_6810-0.JPG

  I love swimming.   I am inherently a water baby.  My parents first took me swimming aged 3 months and I took to it like the proverbial duck.  In my younger years I was an avid swimmer and was part of a synchronised swimming club where we trained pretty hard.  Our warm up was […]

Pride

  They say Pride comes before a fall… PapaCubb suffers from severe pride, it runs in the family.  His Father died of Prostate Cancer because he was so proud he left it until he could no longer walk to see a doctor about it.  This kind of Pride is the worst.  With PapaCubb Pride means […]

Party Hard

IMG_6721-0.JPG

    So yesterday was my bday BBQ (my actual bday isn’t until Fri), and I’d spent most of sat getting things ready for it (see this) then got up early for more prep pre guest arrival.  This meant that by the time people started arriving I was already pretty tired.  My amazing LilbroCubb helped […]

My day has been spent

    My day has been spent preparing for a BBQ tomorrow for my bday. I spent the morning comforting a dear friend who has been treated very badly and absolutely did nothing karmicly to deserve this.  We watched half of The Other Woman, ate popcorn, looked at cats on the Internet and listened to […]

The Truth About Sugar & Chronic Illness

The Truth About Sugar & Chronic Illness

So I’ve been trying to reduce my sweet tooth too.  I’m still a Pepsi Max addict but I alternate with tea, coffee, water and soda with lime as well now, all unsweetened, not even with sweeteners as I get enough of that in Pepsi (I.e. too much).  I’ve also switched to dark chocolate and limit […]

I left the house!

I left the house!

Shock horror I left the house on a Sunday!  I went out into nature in my wheelchair for an hour or so.  The sun was out and it was warm, except in the shade where it was a tad nippy. It felt good to get out.  Afterwards I came home and played computer games to […]

On distractions

On distractions

Today I was in agony.  Today I didn’t want to be awake but couldn’t even nap due to pain.  Today I played World of Warcraft to distract myself and it worked for the hours I sat up to play.  This evening I am still in agony but at least I didn’t spend the day thinking […]
