Subject:In need of a Journal again...
Time:06:32 pm
So, was thinking about why I feeling low today and then thought about how writing some thoughts and stuff down might help. That then moved on to thinking about Live Journal. Managed to log in after some digging and had a read through some old posts. Really interesting how things have changed. Some people attached to this journal I have not seen in years. In fact my last entry was from 2006. Anyway, I am thinking about restarting this journal for a few reasons. Keep track of my spending, pay more attention to my eating, health and fitness plus try to keep track of mood trends etc. Right now I am feeling a bit low and anxious because I am going away with work tomorrow for 4 days, 3 nights. Seems a short time but I have not left my children and wife at home for some time.

Anyway, on a positive note I have had a No Spend Day (NSD). This is a day where no money has been spent. I have about 11k of debt to clear plus long term target of clearing mortgage. On top of this, Christmas is around the corner.

Much more to follow.

Subject:Food glorious food..
Time:07:23 pm
OK, I'm pretty happy with my weight as it stands, I really do not want to put anything back on at all. If anything trim up when able. Since surgery I've now stopped losing weight and in the last week have put on a couple of pounds.

I now want to maintain my weight, so I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions.

I do enough walking and at present cant do anything more than that due to surgery. So it's food advice I'm looking for really.

Thanks in advance...

Subject:Time for a new mobile!
Time:12:20 pm
I'm currently on a pay monthly contract mobile and my bills have not been less than £60 a month in the last 6 months so I am going back to Pay as You Go.

Just wondering what networks and tariffs you guys use and what you think, benefits and advice etc.

Subject:Reply from Brass Band...
Time:05:49 pm
Current Mood:confusedconfused
I got a letter through from the Brass band i applied to, in short they would love me to try out for them etc etc, however.......

They don't want me playing my Trumpet, the want me to play the Cornet. I know there is not much difference, but there is! Starting with playing someone else's instrument :(

The teaching this band provides is great, however I don't know how i feel about not playing my instrument.

I am thinking of joining a less privileged band and having private lessons along side although thats a large time killer...

Any comments from any budding musical peeps?

An hour before my date... Best i get ready!

Subject:New digital camera...
Time:07:32 pm
Im looking for a new digital camera, nothing to expensive but something of reasonable quality. Don't really want to spend more than £100 unless it's special or something.

Any ideas?

Subject:Any suggestions how to get a better night sleep?
Time:01:51 pm
Current Mood:draineddrained
Thats it, any suggestions on how i can sleep better and more! At present I am sleeping every other day. I have tried to keep busy, do nothing, drink but none of that works.

It's damn annoying.

Also, I'm sure i can hear some scratching in between the floorboards. Can't get my ear to the floorboards to be sure though and I'm alone.

Subject:Books...

Current Mood:contentcontent
Gonna buy some books today as I want to get into reading once again.

I'm thinking of getting Jeffrey Archer's - A Prison Diary. Anyone read?

Also, anyone got any other suggestions? I generally like books that are fun and take you away from the real world and leave you care free.

Make sense?

Subject:Must be healthy

Current Mood:happyhappy
Been out and about this week, doing lunch most days with friends etc. I feel like a person of leisure right now but it does get pretty boring!

As of Monday I am going try and go back to my healthy ways and do exercise. Since surgery I have eaten crap. When i am at home my lunch generally consists of rolo desserts, cookies (tesco finest) and cornetto's. Thats about it during the day. Then maybe the same again at night. Funny thing is I've not put any weight on, in fact lost some!

I can see it now - "Loose weight using Phil's cookie and chocolate desert plan" What a seller!?

Subject:Have just applied to join a band....
Time:07:44 pm
Current Mood:excitedexcited
I've just applied to join a multi talented band with a well established brass section. Not sure if I will get in and I know it will involve a single and group performance. Solo should be fine but its been a few years since I've played anything decent in a group.

Anyway, I'm pretty excited and think I will have a few private lessons from my old teacher to get back to standard and iron out any bad habits I've developed.
