Day 3034 & 3035 (21 & 22/04/2018)

The weekend is here with a time to do some work but try to relax a bit.

We had a nice breakfast when it was rainy but we decided to go out for the afternoon to a National Trust property called Killerton's near Exeter, where we had a nice walk in the sun, which was exhausting but continued my good fit-bit score for the week.

Then a nice latte and a cake.

Then we went for a quick drive to Exmouth, to see the beach & the sea, but there was lightening and heavy rain but it stopped just long enough for a quick selfie :-)

On Sunday I say my Mum & Dad for breakfast then came back and started tidying the garden, which had been neglected over the winter.

I know I say it every year but I'm going to get the garden looking nice this year and will definitely spend a lot of time out their, weather willing.

Plus it helped to my best ever Sunday fit-bit rating.

And making a nice slow cooked roast lamb for dinner.


Day 3033 (20/04/2018)

A busy day in the office, I even did some research for an urgent job, which I haven't really done for a while as I have people that do that.

In the evening me and my wife went to see Jason Donovan in Yeovil.


Quite a lovely evening.

Day 3032 (19/04/2018)

It was a busy day as my wife was off, so we had breakfast together and then I went off to a meeting with an old colleague.

The meeting was held for one reason but we discussed something else, which could be an interesting idea to keep me busy, on a part time basis, for the next year or two.

Then back home and a quick change and then off to another appointment.

Day 3031 (18/04/2018)

It was a very early start as me and a few other pensioners were off to London to see our solicitor.

We were slightly apprehensive beforehand but it went really well, so there are no worries about winning this one now.

Then the long drive back home.

Day 3030 (17/04/2018)

Tuesday, so the day started with a nice breakfast with my wife and then had stuff to do in the office and time at the gym.

Day 3029 (16/04/2018)

Back to work, with a few things to do but still not at the pace as it was before.

I didn't feel like going to the gym but I went, going on the running machine (well I walked on it rather than a run) then some weights, then a the cross trainer and then finishing with the punch bag.

It's annoying my hat the fit-bit is still registering so few steps whilst I'm at the gym as I'm knackered by the time I finish :-(

Day 3027 & 3028 (14 & 15/04/2018)

The weekend is here with a few things to do in the office but it started with a nice breakfast.

Then off to the hospital for another test for Thomas.

As we had not eaten all day, since our early breakfast, we rewarded ourselves with a nice Chinese.

On the Sunday I made a really nice roast beef.



Yum Yum Yum.

Day 3026 (13/04/2018)

My days are very similar, office and gym.

Things have cooled slightly at work and I think the door has been left open for me to withdraw my offer and to stay but in my head I have already retired, albeit more winding down than just stopping and my heart was never in working on past this year anyway.

Day 3025 (12/04/2018)

Another similar day, with some work in the office whilst avoiding my business partner and then off to the gym, where the punch bag won as i hurt my neck :-(

Day 3024 (11/04/2018)

Another similar day, doing stuff in the office and then off to the gym for a brisk walk on an incline, then doing some weights then time on the punchbag.

This is all while listen to the Evil Or Genius, the Russell Kane podcast, which is quite interesting.

Day 3023 (10/04/2018)

The day started with a nice breakfast.

Did some stuff in the office and then off to the gym in the afternoon and then had a meeting in the evening, which went on quite late.

Day 3022 (09/04/2018)

Back to work but not overly busy as things haven't changed at work although I might soften my attitude slightly.

I also went to the gym for the first time in a long time.

Sunday, 8 April 2018

Day 3020 & 3021 (07 & 08/04/2018)

Weekend and Thomas went off to see some friends in Bournemouth.

Then we had a nice breakfast, then Lee went back home.

In the afternoon we went to Bridgwater and then I made a nice pasta dish in the evening.

On Sunday we went off to Yeovil early and had fish and chips at a pub before getting to the theatre.



A very good evening, even my wife enjoyed it.

Day 3019 (06/04/2018)

I had to have a hair cut as it was touching my ears, I went for quite a short look this time.

In the evening Lee made Burritos which were really nice.

Day 3018 (05/04/2018)

I had plenty to do in the office but I'm still winding down.

In the afternoon I had a meeting with someone who had recently retired from the police and was starting work as an investigator and wanted a bit of advice.

It is quite nice now, as I am finishing earlier and able to sit and watch the telly with the family.

Day 3017 (04/04/2018)

I went to Taunton Race Course to give a talk to my Dad's Probus (retired manager types) group.


I think he was quite relieved that I was very well received, I on the other hand know how good I am and how interesting I make my talks, so it was just another chat in exchange for a meal for me :-)

Nice braised beef followed by bread & butter pudding.

Day 3016 (03/04/2018)

Back to work after the nice long Bank Holiday break.

The Avon and Somerset Constabulary History & Heritage Facebook Group released a load of Photos from S and I aw the following from February 1986, so young and so much slimmer.

I gave blood in the afternoon, in exchange for tea & biscuits :-)

Then in the evening we did a two for Tuesday.

Day 3015 (02/04/2018)

It was another relaxing Bank Holiday at home with the family, just chilling.

Day 3013 & 3014 (31/03 & 01/04/2018)

Easter Weekend, started with some chocolates and Easter crumpets.


I made a taco & nacho Mexican for dinner, which was very tasty.

In the afternoon I made a banana and pecan brad and butter pudding, which wasn't that bad.

Sunday was the 1st of April, so a new Kyle calendar day.

Did a nice roast for Sunday dinner.
