So it's the first Saturday off of 2022 minus one year and it's always having to come at a price, the future is going to seem really stressful for many let alone me. But for now, the journey of a 60th birthday celebration is to happen
So with the night before being a work until 1am vibe with headsets having issues on Xbox controllers if was time to crash out on seeing things on the iPhone to a degree.
I then woke my eyes up around 8:30 degrees which were to see the cat sleeping outside on his chair. So I let him in and he decided to follow me to then get some dry food and I added some ham. This was before a quick toilet before going back to bed and having the cat sleep with me while I checked the usual social feeds and feabie etc.
Then it was hearing a phone call to find out that there was a house viewing around the 10:30 am mark so it means lying in on a day I'm not supposed to even have off was going to happen, alas I decided to climax over some pics from 9:30 and then got up and finally had a clean-shaven to make sure things were ready for look wise in case it needs it. But then it was getting up and in a jumper and jeans for this dog walking which was the part of making sure I was out of the house along with dad of all things. So the walk happened, I got Rosie's lead on and then it was a case of we drove to the Moors for that quick park near a gate and unloaded the dog and we started walking
|Walking the Dog on the moors|
So as we were walking, it was getting to the point of hearing chatting from dad about one mutual customer as well places, as well as an unintended comment about changing careers to be a chef due to my tastes, which is what he calls experimenting with food. Like that was not called for or expected but it was a hint of him wanting me to change jobs. Even with training and all that demands on top of their choices making things tricky if it ever came to that.
But I explained a small bit and then not much was said and back a bit of silence and Rosie in the leat as per usual. But then we diverted and headed crossing the road back to then going to the car. There was texting with someone and she was hinting at me feeding but in her defence, she does not ask for money unlike someone from the past texting me literally 3 days ago on a begging due to threats she's had from a flat neighbour.
Then we drove back and dealt with more texts on this 16-year-old begging me to get him working for the shop but the HMRC paperwork is going to be a fucking killer so I'm trying to ease him off and should be hearing back from him other people in a hopeful vibe.
Then it was finally time to get home and get changed, but this time is having to add extras like cutting my toenails and wearing the same jeans as from the walk. There was also a bit of the fact I could get this rainbow shirt that has its lovely vibe on compared to a slightly tight grey top. Then I got nagged to put on some sketches that both mum and dad bought me last week which I appreciate but they didn't have to purchase them incase it's one of those out of the blue. Ok sure I've to use tesaa tape on the insides of the soles and also other parts but both shows are breathable for the running distances that will be needed for the future
Then we are off to park and ride.
The journey for the meal
So it was not as busy on the roads, hearing chatter on the potential new buyers was giving me a bit of an uneasy start to the day as it was going to hear the chatter of wedding venues and that even more fucking chat to make things worse, serious hope no stag do worry is a key.
But we got to the park and ride in the end and then turns out the bus was later...
I got out of the car and the car park was not heaving but had more people than expected. But then it was a wait and queue for a bus, in the end, and we then ended on the posher citybus spark which the 42c

The bus was ok, it was nice and nostalgic to get on the bus to finally just type this post up, just like I used to back on the way to nights out and events. But we then got off by the box and pace walked to the port masters which was the posh bar on Barbican that my sister has worked semi-at for her main work.

The afternoon out of shakes and uneasy
But then it was finally time to get there and we walked in, there were a few people in the queue but eventually, we got in and greeted our sister and her fiance. The table was a normal one but with one extra chair. We then started chatting or I mostly listened to them. But it was easier to drink water to not feel as uneasy as it could have gone at any stage or plan. But boats were passing in and out as well as some tombstoners jumping off the walls. I was shaking my legs for most of it and also the heat on my jeans and shirt was happening too.
|A guide boat was going to be passing for the races soon after along with the tombstoners to the right|
There was some chatter about work-like things on new releases and also on how it goes with some Customers but the order in the end after a rush was chicken wings with BBQ dip and chips. By the time I did finish the wings, the chips arrived. One girl that worked there reminded me of a long ago friend but more my version which is mega cute but wasn't her in this case.
|The Chicken Wings and BBQ sauce for £7.50|
But they were not too bad, the sauce was rich and sticky but the chips were good with the skin on but minus the hot part of them being since my mouth got burnt with some sore mark my tounge was licking for most of the afternoon. The helicopter was getting alot of the vibe of the coverage of the SAIL GP and it was starting the 1st race while we were eating. But eventually, it was more checking and more chatter and we decided to leave around the 2:45 ish mark, which we all went for a toilet break before leaving.
Now while waiting for dad for his toilet break, my mum easy how I was feeling and said a bit uneasy and she was about to say something but then her lips burned from this special lip balm from Primark my sister let her try. But then we walked to see the race anc check out the waffle place by the bottom of the hoe. So we walked on, my feet were burning a bit and the traffic or people about was a fair bit even with the road closed. But we walked and saw some of the race finishing.

We then stopped by tinside to view but again it was always that time of a customer calling so it was guiding on how to install WiFi printer for Windows 7 of all things, this was the second time she called since it was direct to mobile. Eventually, the call ended and the family walked on as we then went to the waffle place.
|A View of the helicopter|
We got there and it was queueing badly, but that was due to 4G being laggy to the point o2-based networks did not work at all whatsoever. We then sat in and I was undecided since I've recently realised ice cream sort of gives me diarrhoea or if it's just the Lidl branded. But then mum came back with a drink and Oreo ice cream which ok was nice but my luck would be it could be later on or not. But it was more of a queue and a short wait before the toffee crisp waffle which did look huge arrived.
|The menu for the place|
|The toffee crisps waffle for the family to share|
Then we all shared some pieces minus my sister's fiance due to him not feeling well which was making it a shorter time, but eventually, we had the meal after more chatter, even with telling my sister I'm on my way to see the new place after a customer just down the road from it, (scared shitless for when I have to realise the commute will cause arguments. But for now its seeing how things go.
We then head out to get back to the town, passing the hoe park and also we then part ways with the sister and fiance since we then have a nice view at the boats being lifted off the water in the milbay developments which look really posh, it was nice to reflect and look, even with feet burning or a sensation of burning to say the least.
|The new apartments and the steps are nice|
|The crane and the hangars for the sail GP|
|The other crane and the hangars|
We then watched in agaze as the crane lifted up the yacht in 3 minutes from sea to land. which then with a big team got it nicely laid on wheels before moving it into the said hangar,.
Time to head home

An Evening to myself
So once we got back and unloaded the shopping, it was to ask dad what he wanted to do, since he found the voicemail from his brother that did not put anything in his birthday card and his other brother just dropped off a bottle of Moet which he does not like that type of bubbly. So he wanted to go out for a drink, which I walked Rosie instead and then came back to get some online work done for the rest of the night even with soon to make a nice filling pasta mix,. I finally ate that around the 8pm mark.
|The Chicken stock tomato herb|
So that was that and still working until the 0:30 mark since parents went to bed around the 10:00pm mark since of the long day and the drinks and food from the market in being a case of making them sleepy. While that was happening I found out one girl I used to feed and buy clips here and there as a friend now doing the same and she then gave me a message offering customs and all that.
But then it was time to finally sleep and WAKE UP FOR a potential weekend to me.....
The Start of the 2 days off to myself.

So then it was luckily right in front of the Station, so I parked there at 16:45 and then got to the customers just up the road to then sort out and pretty much re-setup the wifi, since it got forgotten since of some router resets but pretty much 4 months warranty means I had to lose £20 on the thing, but it was nice to be offered a cold drink BUT that would have its refluxing consequence.

|The view from a new place|
|That reaction of how the day-to-day will really become in the long run|
But then it was a run to the bike in the station in a 2:53 timing so it is quicker than 5 minutes, but it was then to explore the station and check the times but using apps like Train Track and the Real Train Times site, it was good to make that note to plan out what happens. But then it was to prepare the brake pads before cycling back home, with no battery and up 2 hills and both are on the main road.

So that was the end of the vlog once I downed a drink from that ending and Rosie still barking, it was time to get this meal sorted out of just the Chinese chicken curry with some extra bits on top as I usually do too. Even eating that was tricky with Rosie still non-stop barking. But it was nice to tuck in to this for sure. Dragging her out sometimes weas the only way to go about it
|The meal of Chinese chicken curry with added sugar and Chinese five spice on the rice, Ketchup mayo 2 in one, Honey Puffs and even salad to go with the chocolate waffle on the side|
But alas I was tired, Rosie was still on the defence and it was time to get to watch some Lebron James in multiverses and Tidy washing from earlier which was a nice evening to spend until Rosie was barking for another walk which was nearly 12am or so.
|Clothes to sort out|
And there we go, one walk later and I decided to crash out since I had another cycle the Tuesday which was a nearly 12 hour day.
Another Catchup on the Resolutions
- Sort out the Down their problems and prepare to be able to have sex - The Cyst has gone but the appointment on the phone is 11th August 4:40pm but it might be tough if work gets as busy as it has been feeling this week. Plus I've not even replied to the therapist when shes asked about sorting out the consultation soon.
- Have branded fast food with someone outside the family - This might be happening next week on the 5th But I have a feeling its going to be ending up a repeat of February 2020
- Tweet more - It Getting slowly better with tweeting while dogwalking after evenings in work, but its still catchup pics from a few days before
- Try to make more videos at least 2 per month - I'm lucky if it's one per month but with plans in October of Goose fair, it might feel a success
- Do more Day out vlogs - Exeter vlog is pretty much out of the question from this point, BUT with potential days off from the ,moving distance, might be easier in the future or it might be the same, so no luck so far
