Summers here...!

Hi guys, sorry I've not blogged for ages, i wanted to but i was fed up with them reading like a sad and depressing samaritans book, any how, this is what has happened to me over the last three months. Believe me when i say this next bit because it might sound ridiculous, for a few years now i have been wanting to get fit again and slim down to a healthy more manageable weight, i have tried but as usual i did well for a while then it would crash down for one reason or another, we have all been there with our addictions be it food drink or smoking, well after i had a problem with my reading glasses i went to the opticians and he referred me to the doctors  because my prescription had changed so much , so off i went to the docs and he did a urine test and asked me if i was okay with a shocked look on his face, he then explained that my keytones in my wee were very high (20+)  and a blood sugar levels at 29 and that i had diabetes and i should have insulin and metformin tablets right away, i refused insulin and said i would get my blood sugar levels down through exercise and diet, the doc protested and was worried, i said if in two weeks they had not changed then i would take the insulin as he wished, now as i said above this next bit might sound a bit ridiculous but if there was ever a time to get diabetes then this was it, i was ready for a lifestyle change and a fight, i was given literature and started reading information on diabetes and sure  enough, two weeks later i managed with the help of the tablets exercise and diet got my keytones down and my blood sugar to 10 and as i write this ten weeks since i was diagnosed i have lost two and a half stone and levelled my blood sugar to around the 5 mark, i have more energy and motivation and taken up my weight training again as well as an hour of brisk walking every morning. i took getting diabetes on the chin, Nade on the other hand was not as positive as me as her dad had ultimately died from the disease and was worried sick.
But alas, things are looking up and brighter.
It's been a year since mum died and we are having a family get together and although it will be hard we are going to give mum a bit of a party with food drink and some Chinese lanterns.
I need to share this with you, just as i wrote that paragraph above i had my media player on random and on came hey jude by the beatles, now this song was the song we sang to mum while she was ill and passing away, because it matched the beeping of the obs machine next to the bed, she loved us singing that tune to her mum could hum it if she was too weak.
So fuck it, its gona be a full on party now, one that will make mum proud...! miss you mum....x

much love my friends xxx

Nade and i are working for my sister Elaine, being her media communications managers, what this entails is keeping her website, twitter, facebook, and likedin all up to date and running smoothly. Nade has taken to it like a duck to water and is busy adding like minded groups and people.
What Elaine teaches is M.B.S.R. Mindfulness based stress reduction. what's ibecame you my ask well its
When you’re stressed, how do you cope? Bottle it up until you pop? Scream, shout? Get an angry, closed moody mind-set?
Stress, anxiety and worry = pain, anger and sadness.
Mindfulness = new & creative solutions to dealing with the old cycles of stress. That's me for tonight, night fellow friends...x

Happy mothers day mum.

So it's mothers day, and i wrote my mum a letter saying how much i missed her, then folded the letter and tied it to a rose, we popped to the beach, i wanted to throw it in to the sea but because i had been avoiding doing it all day the tide was on its way back in, so not to have it wash back up on shore i found what looked like a prehistoric pimp stick and tied it to that.
i said a few more words of remembrance then with these words..... "A leg and a wing to see the king a1 bum bum a2 bum bum and a jolly good 3"....  and as graciously as possible lobbed it in to the Solent, we all smiled giggled and cried, miss you mum, have a great mothers

Difficult time's in sunshine

There it is, the sun, hiding away for all those months, and now we bask in it's warmth and brightness, smiling faces retuning from the gloom of winter, as we sow the seeds of happiness and fulfilment that awaits the ever increasing daylight which courses through our hearts.
I don't mean for this to be a doom or gloom blog but my mate's dog Tess has just died aged six, now they are all very upset as am i, but, from a pure selfish point of view, will every one be they pet, plant or person please not fucking die for the next two years, i have had enough of death and all his connotations, i wish to be joyful, happy and content just for a while, before the next shit lorry comes and parks another load of sadness on my doorstep ...! 
Live in peace my brothers and sisters xxx
