Saturday 22 September 2018

Just got back from walking the pup.  Steve came out of the house and just stayed in the road for 150% while me and the pup did a record-equalling 250%!!

Hopefully he'll walk a little bit next time then gradually increase it back from there... we're gonna take it really slowly 'cos it's been months since we did our last family walkies so we'll take it at Steve's pace now that he's come out with us once.

It's not very far at all - 100% is only about 20 metres but it helps to lose the weight we both need to lose so it's just the encouragement to get Steve out of the house is all.  He used to join us every day and take the pup up to the end of the road at least once while I waited outside the house just in case Steve needed help or whatever and we'll do it again soon... just at Steve's pace each time.
***

That's me morning cocktail taken.  They all went down really easily again thankfully... so much better than yesterday!
***

We timed the walk really well too 'cos less than half an hour later and it's piddling down with rain!
***

I now know how Steam Trains are twirled about and I've downloaded (but not installed yet) Visual Studio so that I can make changes to the software Steve made for me without pestering him.  He'll need to tell me for the first few times, just until I'm used to how it works.  Like it was with the database... I know how to add and delete things from it now though!

Watch this space!
***

Downloaded and am currently installing Visual Studio!  😯
***

All installed now... and I know what I need to do when Steve's talked me through the Visual Studio dooberry, then I will, in theory, be able to get it all sorted myself.  I've never even seen Visual Studio though and haven't got the foggiest about how to do it, but the theory is that I need to install a couple of apps then copy and paste the new names or whatever into it, press a button and hope that I don't screw it up too badly!

I'll prolly break my likkle laptop the first time I try and do it though!  lol
***

I've just written my first ever piece of C# code!!!

It was just a button that, when clicked, says Hello World so I'm not the next Bill Gates or anything, but an hour ago I was panicking that I'd break the laptop just by opening the programme!

Feeling sooooo proud of myself now!!
***

Taken my prescription now, so I'm gonna publish this then log off for the first time in 3 days.  Need to remember to watch and learn from the C# video tomorrow and hope nobody phones, emails or comes to the door for me!  lol

Friday 21st September 2018

Shows how often I look at me watch, don't it!  It stopped at just gone 2.40pm yesterday but didn't find out until I was in bed at midnight!  lol

Ordered meself a new one now though, that'll be here tomorrow and I'll put this one on Freegle as soon as it arrives.  It's still works and it's a great watch, it just needs a new battery is all, so hopefully it'll find a new home with someone who can actually leave the street lol

The new one is triple the price I paid for the current one so I'm gonna go into town to change the battery on it each time it needs it now instead of paying a fiver, having it on my wrist for a year and then having to buy another one.

Steve's just taken a photo of it ready to put on Freegle tomorrow so I'm all set for tomorrow morning now so gonna take the pup for her walk and I'll take me supplements then!
***

It seems that the later I go to bed, the less sleep I need for some reason!

I was still awake at midnight but still woke up at 8.30am, yet when I go to bed at 10pm or before I need 12 hours sleep!!
***

Just found 2 watches for a penny each so I snapped them both up lol
***

That's the puppy walked and fed - we did 150% this morning and she was obviously hungry 'cos she started eating before I'd even finished putting her food into her bowl!  lol

Supplements now.
***

Three of the four pills went down OK this morning but the multi got stuck so I threw up the squash I'd just swallowed then swallowed it in amongst the squash that was in my mouth.  It's why I can't take capsules or larger pills without crunching them up first!
***

Steve's just done the squash for me, so I don't need to pester him about it any more now.
***

Taken me prescription so I'll be going to bed soon.  Nite nite orl!
***

Thursday 20th September 2018

Yet again Steve's broken another promise.  He said he was going to come on family walkies with me and the pup yesterday morning but yet again he hasn't.

It's splattering with rain though so I can understand that he didn't want to get soggy feet, it's just annoying that he promises one thing then changes his mind.

He needs more B12 and B9 though so he's thinking of getting a multi instead of 2 separate ones... seems sensible!  Their multi that I'm taking atm starts kicking in within seconds of swallowing it!
***

That's the shampoo gone, the purse is still on offer though!
***

Steve's just bought a multivitamin from Simply Supplements so that'll be here in a few days... usually with the post so it'll prolly be here by the weekend or the start of next week at the latest.
***

Just gotta take my cocktail now, then that's everything sorted for the day and I can just concentrate on all the millions of survey's waiting for me.  😵  OK, so that's a huge exageration, but the truth is that there are 65 waiting for me right now.
***

That's me morning cocktail taken.  The multi got stuck half way down which made me retch and almost throw up but the fast second gulp of squash got it down, thankfully.  All three of us have taken our pills now so I can concentrate on the survey taking.
***

First survey done and dusted.
***

Given up with the surveys now... marked 'em all as read and I've got a book to read and review tomorrow so I doubt I'll get many surveys done tomorrow either!
***

Stuffed from me tea now!  Gonna be a late night for me!  lol
***

Just about to start the deep virus scan at bed time on a Thursday which hopefully means it'll be finished by Saturday morning... the battery will need a looooong time to cool down but it'll be worth it after being on for 3 days without being turned off!
***

Wednesday 19th September 2018

Just taken the pup for her morning stroll.  She only wanted to do the normal 100% today so she's still got 100% in the bank.

Steve said that as long as it's not raining tomorrow we'll go for another family walk again.  He said at the weekend that he wanted to start coming out with us again so that he can lose the weight he's put back on 'cos he enjoyed the relaxed start to the day and the exercise helped him to lose a bit of his obesity that he's put back on again since he stopped joining us.

I'll give it a fortnight before he doesn't regularly come out with us again  😞
***

Steve's made me a single bottle of squash so that I can take my morning cocktail of pills.  He promised last night that he'd make me 4 bottles as he's being paid to be my carer for 35 hours a week but I'm lucky to get half an hour a week in reality!
***

That's me pills taken and I'm bloated with squash now.  They went down a lot easier than I was thinking last night!
***

First survey of the day completed already!!
***

Given up on the surveys for today, taken me prescription and it's starting to kick in so I'm gonna have an early night for a change.  Nite nite orl!
***


Tuesday, 18 September 2018

Tuesday 18th September 2018

The pup did 150% on her walk this morning so she's got 100% in the bank this week, if she decides to be a stroppy bitch again this week!  She was desperate for a wee too and squatted down on the pavement as soon as I opened the door.  Within a couple of minutes of getting home she went out the back for a poo, too so she's all set for the day now and I'm gonna take me supplements now so that I can be fully dosed up for the day too.
***

That's me pills taken and coffee drunked so I'm all set for the day now.  Just waiting to see if anyone wants me purse and the boxes that someone said they wanted in the early hours of yesterday morning.
***

That's the Freegle stuff sorted... that's the boxes, purse and shampoo I'm offering this week alone lol  It de-clutters the house and gives other people stuff for free which keeps it out of the tip when it's still useable which saves the planet little by little.

There's no point binning stuff when other people need/want it!
***

Just completed the first survey of the day... still waiting for my Amazon package to be delivered even though it's been in the area at least 5 times so far today lol
***

Second survey finished and the delivery has just come through the door so I'm gonna to the restore dooberry now, just while I remember.
***

Virus and malware free again!  Really am gonna try and work out how to do the restore thingy now!
***

Backing up the system files atm... hope I'm doing this right - it's my first time I've ever tried to do this - always relied on the hubby before!  😮
***


Monday, 17 September 2018

Monday 17 September 2018

Just got back from taking the pup for her morning stroll and she did 250% and a poo today!  That means she's walked off yesterday's 100%, today's 100% and there's already an extra 50% in the bank too!
***

That's my morning cocktail swallowed.  They all went down pretty easily today, thankfully.

The pollen count is already through the roof now 'cos my eyes and nose are running, I keep sneezing and my throat is closing up too.  😔
***

Just put me previous purse on Freegle - used the site instead of Yahoogroups for the first time 'cos apparently they are moving away from Yahoogroups for some reason.

I just hope I did it right!  lol
***

That's the recycling been and gone for another week... just waiting for our bag of rubbish to go now then that's it until the shopping comes between 6pm and 7pm tonight.  Hopefully the purse will go at some point today along with the boxes that someone wanted overnight but that's it then for another week!
***

Just completed the first survey of the day and was awarded $3.52 overnight for surveys I did a few days ago... a tiny amount for how much time I spent on each survey, but it's better than nothing and keeps me out of trouble lol
***

Second survey done and dusted.
***

Third survey of the day completed.
***

Fourth survey done and dusted.
***

The shopping has already been and gone!  It turned up within a couple of minutes of the first delivery time which is awesome!
***

Hosting for YoCW has been cancelled but I've still got the domain name so we can re-start it whenever we want in future.  I've only got 3 sites to keep track of now which is a lot more manageable!!
***

Virus and malware scan done and dusted, all clear again.
***


Sunday, 16 September 2018

Sunday 16th September 2018

The pup hasn't wanted to go for her morning walkies all morning  👎  We managed to get the rubbish and recycling out there without an argument though... 2 completely full recycling boxes today!!

Gonna take me supplements now.
***

That's me cocktail of pills taken... they all caused me problems this morning!  😕
***

Still waiting for me mug and USB thingy to arrive - it's been on it's way from Swindon since 9.43am and Steve reckons it only takes half an hour to get from Swindon to here!
***

Steve said there must be some kind of war re-enactment in the centre of Gloucester today 'cos there was all kinds of booming from cannons.

I didn't believe him.

I was wrong.

I've just been to the bathroom and the booms and bangs are really loud!

I'm sorry for not believing you Steve!
***

The mug and flash drive thingy has just arrived.  The mug is an OK size and it fits in the hole on the table which I'm thankful for... was just expecting it to be a bit bigger, considering it's supposed to hold 500ml, but we'll find out next time we have a cafetierre coffee... I can fit 1.5 mugs into my current mug and Steve has one mug, so in theory I'll be able to have the full 1.5 mugs in just one mug tomorrow.

We shall see.
***

Gonna try doing the Acer dooberry now... if you don't hear from me for a few days it's because I've accidentally reformatted my hard drive and I'm rocking backwards and forwards in tears!  lol
***

Sort of done... the factory reset back-up needed 32GB on its own, plus another 4GB for the apps and devices as well as 4GB of junk that was already on it before it left the factory just wasn't gonna fit, so I've just ordered myself a 128GB one that'll be here on Tuesday so that's plenty of room for the factory reset backup as well as the apps and devices backup.

£32 paid for 2 USB drives in 24 hours is pretty expensive but when I get the 2 backups sorted on Tuesday/Wednesday (depending what time it turns up on Tuesday) I'll have peace of mind until I've used up the entire external hard drive for the backups.

It's worth it for peace of mind!
***


Saturday, 15 September 2018

Saturday 15th September 2018

I reckon the pollen count is high this morning 'cos I'm in the throes of it already!
***

Taken me supplements - they all went down OK until it got to the multi this morning.  That refused to go down whole so I had to crunch it up to swallow it  😕 👎
***

Gonna try and take the pup for her walk now... wish me luck!
***

She doesn't want to go yet, so I'll try again in a bit.  😐
***

We've just got back and she didn't do 100% or even 150% but 200% this morning!!  Awesome puppy-dog!
***

That's the puppy fed too, so it's survey's for the rest of the day now!
***

That's the backup sorted for another week now.  Just need to get a new cardigan (this one has got holes in the elbow lol) and a USB stick thingy so that I can create a Windows start up thingy with everything on it that I need to start my laptop up from if things go tits up and I need to reformat my hard drive or whatever.  I hope it never happens 'cos I haven't got a clue what to do if it does, but it's better to be safe than sorry, right?
***

Not bad for pennies over £25!  Got meself a big mug that'll be here tomorrow, a memory stick thingy for the factory reset back up dooberries that'll be here on Monday and a cardigan that'll be here in the middle of the week... the poor postie is gonna hate me next week!  lol
***

AVG has just protected me from a threat on a website, so that's like 3 times in as many weeks... expensive but soooo worth it I reckon!  Definitely worth the year-long protection it gives!

I is an huuuuuge AVG fan and wouldn't go anywhere else now!
***

The mug has just been dispatched so it'll be here by 8pm tomorrow and it apparently holds half a litre of liquid!!  😲
***

The virus and malware scan has just finished too, so I'm still clear protected from online nasties... yaaaay!
***


The USB memory stick thing has been dispatched and will be here tomorrow too so by the time I go to bed tomorrow I'll be able to have half a litre of tea, coffee and drinking chocolate as well as being able to do the restarting thingamejig too... just waiting for the cardigan now!

You only need to create the restarting dooberry once, right??  I can just create it then bung it in the drawer so that it's ready, right??
***

Friday 14th September 2018

Good luck at the hospital today, Danielle!  I'm here for you no matter what happens!
***

I'm gonna walk the pup when she wants to go rather than me today... she's looking like she's ready to go now that I've said that!  BRB lol!
***

The puppy did another 150% today so I'm definitely thinking that she will control when we go rather than me for the time being at least.

She's got a gunky eye that she won't let me take out so I'll try again later... she let me do her right eye, it's just the left one that still needs to be sorted.  I won't pressure her because I want her to keep trusting me to do it in future.  We'll get there when she's ready.
***

Just taken me morning cocktail of pills and they were all a nightmare to swallow today!!  A huge 13 mouthfuls of squash to swallow only 4 pills!

I'm bloated again now because of all the liquid I had to drink to swallow them... not good at all!
***

I'm thinking of all those in the path of the hurricane... the news has just said that it's expected to get 8 months of rain in 2-3 days!!

Stay safe everyone!
***

First survey done and dusted
***

Second survey completed
***

Third survey done and dusted.
***

Fourth survey about the aging process completed
***

Having yet another take-away for tea  😲 👎
***

Virus and malware scan done and dusted... naughty programmes free for another day!
***

Another survey finished, about supplements this time!
***

Just taken me prescription and it's already kicking in, so I'm shutting down for the night... nite nite orl!

Thursday 13th September 2018

Just got back from taking the pup for her walk and she poo'd so I, like the responsible dog owner that I am, picked it up and brought it home to bin on Monday.

I didn't have to struggle to get her off the sofa this time, so I'm thinking I just need to wait until she's been for a poo out the back and she's got herself off the sofa before I take her tomorrow and every day after that.

Having to bend down so much to pick up her poo has well and truly wiped me out now though, so I'm not going to move off the sofa the rest of the day now so that my knees don't give way and I end up on the floor, unable to get up.

Gonna take me cocktail now then not move for a while to recover.
***

That's me 4 pills taken with 5 mouthfuls of squash and I'm starting to get tired and my knees are starting to ache now, so I'm just gonna listen to my body and not force it to do anything more than it can cope with today.

No pushing at all.

The only time I'm gonna leave the sofa is to go to the bathroom and I'm gonna use my arms as little as possible for the first few hours.
***

I'm totally cream crackered so I think I need and deserve a really early night tonight lol
***

Forgot to say up there ^^ that the puppy walked 150% today... she must have been relieved after her poo to do the extra half and she's fast asleep now, bless 'er!
***

First survey of the day done and dusted.
***

Second survey completed
***

Third survey sorted.  After a slow start, they are increasing now!
***

That's the fourth survey done and dusted too... I'm on a roll!
***

Blimey!  Fifth survey completed now!
***

And another one!  Up to six now which is totally awesome!
***

And another one!  That's seven this afternoon!!
***

Doing the virus scan and heading to bed... I'm totally wiped out after this morning!
***

Virus and malware free and I haven't got any vulnerable documents available to hackers either, so I'm gonna publish this then head to bed... nite nite orl!
***


Wednesday, 12 September 2018

Wednesday 12th September 2018

The puppy was a reluctant little girl first thing... she refused to go for her walk while she was on the back of the sofa, but when she decided to jump down on her own she was eager to go for her walk then.

We only did 100% but she met our neighbour and wagged her tail at the children.  The older 2 children seemed to want to say hello to the pup and the youngest were too nervous about the puppy to really pay much attention to her.  Maybe they've had bad experiences of dogs in the past?

Her food is in her bowl for her to eat whenever she's hungry but I'm gonna take me morning cocktail of pills now.
***

That's the pills taken and another box of hayfever pills finished.  They all went down OKish today, thankfully.
***

Little sweetie puppy dog is having oneheckuva dream 'cos she's woofing away like a good 'un!  It's rare for her to make a sound when she's awake so it must be scaring/exciting her to do it in her sleep!
***

First survey of the day done and dusted... by this time yesterday I'd done 4 though!  lol
***

Still virus and malware free!
***

Money advice please - we've got a mortgage and no car.  I haven't seen my mum for 8 years.  Should I pay a chunk off the mortgage or pay for a used car for Steve please?

We've got 5 years left to pay on the mortgage so paying off a chunk of it would mean Steve could get a car after the final payment and I could go and see my mum again, I'd just have to wait for another 5 years is all and neither of us are getting any younger or healthier.

OTOH if I get us a car I can go over and see her sooner but we'd still be struggling to pay the mortgage for the next 5 years on top of having to buy insurance and MOTs and any repairs and stuff on top of that.

My credit score is through the floor and I'm determined not to get into debt ever again, so a car loan is out too, so what should I do please?
***

Taken me prescription so I'm gonna publish this now and head to bed I reckon.

Nite nite orl!
***

Tuesday, 11 September 2018

Tuesday 11 September 2018

That's the puppy walked and fed.  She was back to being excited when I called "walkies" and she did the full 100% without getting stroppy today too so I don't know what happened on Sunday and yesterday, but she's back to being her adorable self now, thankfully.
***

That's me morning cocktail of pills taken and they all went down reasonably well again this morning.  It was just the Calcium that took an extra mouthful of squash to get the last few bits down.
***

That's my passwords changed on Bravenet and added to Roboform and the Chrome drop-down thingamejigs... got rid of 3 accounts that I no longer use and edited the ones that I do to reflect the new passwords.  Only need to remember 4 now!  lol  My Windows log in password, my Roboform password, my online banking password and the members area password on the S4CG site!  They are all different and more secure than the ones I usually use to sign it... just gotta remember which password is for which now!  lol
***

Got a headache in both eyes now!  😕  Just taken the first Paracetamol that I've taken for about 5 years and had to crunch it up... yuckerama!  It's worse than even a disintegrated Iron pill which I thought was the worst taste in the world.

I was wrong.

So so wrong.

Urgh.

😣 😦
***

Second survey of the day finished and it's not even lunchtime yet!!  👍
***

Mug Shot and crisps for lunch today... yumsk!  Don't worry, I didn't dunk the crisps in the Mug Shot - that's just gross!  lol
***

3 survey's done and dusted
***

4 surveys now!!
***

Blimey!  Just completed my 5th survey of the day!!  😄
***

Virus and malware free for another day... should I increase the scans to twice a day just to be totally sure??
***

And that's another survey completed!  Gonna take me prescription now though.
***

Monday 10th September 2018 - Part 2

Just got back from having me hair cut.  We were with Steve's family for almost 4 hours, which was the same as we spent with my mum on the day of my father's funeral, he'll be with his dad for at least a couple of hours tomorrow and Friday, so that's almost the same amount as I've spent with my mum since 2010... hardly fair, is it?  Seeing his family the same amount in 5 days as I've seen my mum in 8 years!!!  So much for going over to see her regularly too!
***

Virus and malware free for another day!
***

That's the living room, hall, air lock and bathroom de-cobwebbified, just gotta do the kitchen, stairs and bedroom a going over when the cobwebber has been decobwebbified then that's it sorted for a while!
***

Just taken me prescription so I'll head to bed when it starts kicking in!
***

That's the stairs and bedroom done now so I won't get any more facefulls of cobwebs.  Still need to find out how to decobwebbify the device though, but Steve says he's going to find out from his mum tomorrow... his promises take 4 weeks of begging and pleading based on previous experiences though!
***


Monday 10th September 2018 - Part 1

Just got back from taking the pup out.  She refused point blank yesterday so I wasn't going to let her get away with it today as well.  I had to almost literally drag her off the sofa unfortunately.  👎  She was fine on Saturday so I don't know why she has been so reluctant for the last 2 days.  😕

She wanted to come home after 50% but I forced her to do the full 100%.
***

Just brought the rubbish bag in after it's just been collected.  Put the last empty bottle of pop in the recycling, ready for when that gets taken too.
***

Having me hair cut today and thankfully my Aliceband has shrunk so that it's tighter against my head again now, so this blog will have two parts today... assuming I remember of course.  lol

Gonna take me supplements before I forget again now though.
***

That's me supplements taken incredibly easily this morning... just one mouthful of squash each and then straight down!  I usually have to chase at least one of them round my mouth for a few seconds so it was amazingly easy this morning, thankfully!  😊 😌
***

The water and coconut conditioner weren't in stock so I'm glad I didn't put the bottles in for recycling and I've asked Steve to give the conditioner back too... more expensive for less volume!  Just need to remember to put the water and conditioner on next week's order instead lol
***


Sunday, 9 September 2018

Sunday 9 September 2018

That's the backup done and dusted... there's a little pop up box that comes up about creating a factory backup but I can't find where it's stored for me to do it!  😞

Gonna take the pup for her walk now  👌  BBS!
***

The little cowbag refused to go for a walk, so we're using up a day's walk that's in the bank this week, which takes it down to 250% left, but it's Sunday so the last day of the weekly bank count up which ain't so bad I suppose.

She's been fed too, I'm just really angry with her right now.

Gonna take me supplements now, then try and lower my anger and blood pressure for a while.
***

That's the poo cleared up from the back yard, and the recycling and bin bag out ready for tomorrow.

Really am gonna take me pills now!
***

That's me pills taken.  They all went down OK except the multi this time... that one took 3 mouthfuls of squash to get down!
***

Cold and flu... what's so different about them?  Do you just feel too grotty to get out of bed with flu or is there pain or exhaustion or something else on top of the cold symptoms please?
***

Just had a shower and washed me hair ready for getting it cut tomorrow.  Put the Aliceband in for a wash too so hopefully it'll be washed and dried by the time I go to bed tonight so that I can wear it again tomorrow morning to keep me hair out of my eyes.

Want about 2 inches off at the back and I'm trying to grow out the fringe I was given despite never wanting it.

Again.
***

Completed 2 surveys this afternoon and I'm wiped out so I'm gonna take me prescription and head to bed already!  Nite nite orl!
***

That's me prescription taken and virus scan completed so I'm gonna publish this then head to bed... nite nite again!
***


Saturday, 8 September 2018

Saturday 8 September 2018

Just walked and fed the pup... she only wanted to walk 100% again today so we're stilll at 350% in the bank.

Gonna take me supplements now.
***

The cocktail was a nightmare to swallow this morning... double the squash to get each of 'em down  👎 😒
***

I'm booooooored!!  After 3 busy days I've got nothing else to do now  😞
***

Watching the last two episodes of Masterchef Australia to stop me whining!  lol
***

Added 5 pages to the site and I'm working on a template site for my best online friend too!

Amazing what you can achieve when you haven't got anything planned!  lol
***

Just started the quick daily virus scan and apparently my browser is secure so just waiting for the rest to be checked now... I've recommended AVG to 2 people in the last 24 hours lol  👍
***

No viruses or sensitive files so I'm sorted for another 24 hours... miss doing the weekly deep scan, but after losing my internet connection for 3 days last time I did it, I'm only gonna do it once a month now instead.
***

That's me prescription taken so I'll be heading to bed in a couple of hours.
***


Friday, 7 September 2018

Friday 7th September 2018

After not wanting to get going, I would have been happy with the pup only doing another 100% this morning, but she doubled it to 200% through her own choosing by the time we got outside.  That means there's 350% in the bank this week which is awesome!
***

Steve's just filled me squash up so gonna take me morning cocktail now
***

That's me hayfever pill and 3 supplements taken now, so I'm all set for the day.. time to edit the last of the trilogy now!
***

Virus free for another day and on the last 2 chapters for the editing too!

I can so do this!!
***

Aaaand it's finished!  Three manuscripts edited in three days means I can have a 3 day weekend!  Yaaaaay!!

Going to bed now lol

Nite nite orl!
***


Thursday, 6 September 2018

Thursday 6th September 2018

The pup only wanted to do 100% on her walk this morning which is totally OK but means that she's still got 250% in the bank which is two and a half days walkies which ain't so bad.
***

That's me cocktail of pills taken - they all went down pretty easily this morning, thankfully!
***

Another manuscript edited... took 7 hours to do so hopefully I'll get the last one edited by the time Steve gets home from his appointment as long as I start on it as soon as I get back from walking the pup tomorrow!
***

Virus free too, thankfully!
***

Wednesday 5th September 2018

Just got back from walking the pup and she was a walking machine today!

I was happy with 100% but she carried on walking, so I thought maybe we'd do 150%.

Nope.

Not even 200%.

She did a huge 250%!

She was debating on making it 300% but there's no way my legs would have kept up so we came home and I fed the pup.

I'm not moving further than the bathroom for the rest of the day now!  lol
***

That's me cocktail of pills taken now, so I'm gonna have a quick look at yesterday's post to see how many percent was already in the walkies bank then add today's 150% to it... bear with me a sec and I'll go and do that now while I remember!
***

100% from yesterday plus 150% from today and we're already at 250% on only day 3 of the 7 days this week!!
***

Gonna try and remember to do a daily quick virus scan instead of a deep weekly one, just so that I can be sure I'm still virus free... can someone remind me every evening though pretty please?

TIA!
***

Just had a couple of mini power cuts... the electricity was back on in less than 15 minutes both times though, but it's things like that that make me grateful I'm using a laptop rather than a desktop!
***

First survey of the day completed!
***

Prescription taken and first of the daily virus scans started
***

Virus free and sensitive documents secured for today
***

Second survey done and dusted!

Tuesday 4 September 2018

Achieved a lot already today!

First I got an e-shop up and running and started on a second one, then the groceries got delivered at last, then took the pup out for her walk and she met up with her favourite neighbour who made a fuss of her, then came home and took me supplements while the laptop was rebooting (I think I had another BSoD while I was out with the pup).

Gonna put the last thing into the second shop now then update the appropriate page on the site, upload it and that's another 2 things I can mark as 'done' on my to-do list!

When the second shop is up and ready for customers I'll spend the afternoon doing surveys.

The pup did 200% of her walk today so we're already 100% in credit and it's only the second day of the week!!
***

Had an incredibly productive day today... crossed several things off my to-do list so I'm gonna take me prescription and do a few surveys before heading to bed for a well-deserved early night I reckon!
***

That's me prescription taken now, so time to crack open the chocolate to share with Steve then make a start on the surveys until bedtime... really proud of what I've achieved today!  😁
***

3 surveys done and dusted so I'm off to bed now... totally wiped out!

Nite nite orl!

Monday 3rd September 2018

The pup only wanted to do 100% of her walk today so there's nothing in the bank yet, but that's OK - as long as she does the 100% I'm not going to force her into doing any more if she doesn't want to.
***

That's me cocktail of pills taken... it's gonna be so weird only taking one instead of the four I take every morning atm, but the new multi has already got Calcium, Magnesium and Iron in it and the hayfever will be coming to an end at the end of September/beginning of October so I'll only need one or two more boxes of those too 'cos they only come in boxes of 14 pills.  I just hope that the new multi is swallowable size like the current Multi and Iron, rather than capsule shaped that I have to crunch up like the Calcium and Magnesium... judging by the bottle sizes though, they will need to be crunched up.  Ho hum  😔
***

That's the book read and reviewed, so it's time to take part in a few surveys now!
***

There was some kind of problem with the delivery of our groceries so I spent more than an hour waiting to speak to someone about it, they took the card number again and it went through so we've rebooked it to come tomorrow between 11am and 12pm.  Big PITA but it's all sorted now... as long as it turns up when it's rebooked for tomorrow lol

Sunday 2nd September 2018

That's the pup walked and fed.  She did 150% today so there's currently 500% in the bank from this week alone!

I'm gonna start from 0% every Monday morning to see how much extra she does each week.  I'm not taking the previous week's extra's forward but as long as she does at least 100% a day, I'll be happy with that.
***

Took the recycling and rubbish bag out which caused our weekly row then finding out that Steve hadn't raked up her poo before Steve forced me to take the recycling and rubbish out put me in an even worse mood.

It's done for another week now though, so I've just gotta take me cocktail of pills and then I can hopefully start to simmer down a bit.
***

That's me cocktail taken.  The Calcium was a PITA to swallow today though  👎
***

Had a blue screen of death which just about put the tin hat on everything, but it's for things like that, that I make sure to back up every week - just in case!  If I do lose everything because the hard drive has died again, I will only lose 7 days stuff at most.

Book Review: Screw work break free by John Williams


⭐⭐⭐⭐ out of 5

This is a good basics read, but the author expects you to already have a product to sell, a mailing list or a database of people to sell it to. 

Tough luck if, like me, you have neither. 

It took a while to get started and I've got a list of new things to try now, but I'm no further towards making money than I was when I started reading it. 

It's a good read but you already need to have something to work with to really benefit from it. 

If all you've got is an idea for something you want to make money from then look elsewhere. If you can't afford to spend money, look elsewhere. If you're willing to waste 30 days of your life to gain very little from it, this is the book for you. 

It seemed to be mainly the author promoting his website and using businesses like Amazon and Apple to prove a point. 

If you've already got the basics sorted and you want to take the next step but don't know how, this book might help you, but if all you've got is an idea then you'll be sorely disappointed unfortunately.

Saturday 1st September 2018

Pinch and a punch for the first of the month!

***

I took me hayfever pill and 3 supplements before I took the pup out this morning and, tbh, it didn't make too much of a difference either way... it's stopped me sniffing and coughing and my eyes watering since we came back so maybe it just takes a while to take effect?
***

Our senior little pup only wanted to do 100% today and I didn't want to force her to do more than that after building up 450% extra in 6 days so we came back and I fed her then she jumped into her bed and has been snoozing ever since.
***

Steve made me another 2 bottles of squash first thing so that should keep me going for most of the week, as long as none of the pills get stroppy with me and refuse to be swallowed like they sometimes do, grrrr!
***

Had a mug and a half of coffee to wake me up and keep me going too... I can see why some people can't function without that first caffeine hit every morning now.  Hopefully I won't become that dependant on it in future!
***

The virus scan is only at 51% after 22 hours, so it'll be at least midnight before it's finished.  Tut tut.
***

Me prescription pre-payment card has just been delivered so I'm covered for another year's worth of prescription charges now which gives me one less thing to worry about.
***

The virus scan has been going for 28 hours and it's still only at 66% so I'm gonna stop the deep scan and just go with the quick one instead.
***

Gonna do a quick scan every evening and a deep scan once a month so that I'm not forced into leaving my laptop running for 3 days a week

I'll try and remember to still do the back-up of my hard drive on a Saturday so that I only ever lose a week's worth of stuff if my hard drive decides to die on me again.
***

That's my hard drive backed up for another week now, so I can read Facebook then close down... don't suppose anyone knows how to create a "Facebook page" do they?  What do you put on them... is it more like a webpage or just an additional stream of messages like are already on your wall?
