It's really hard thinking that 3 weeks ago tonight I was rationing my last pack of cigarettes to run out exactly at bed time so I wouldn't have any left for the morning. A lot's happened in that time & a lot hasn't.

I finished one piece of unfinished business today when I emptied & washed out my ashtray at work. I'd been avoiding dealing with it because I simply didn't wish to touch it Today I treble badgged the contents & gave it a good rinse.

I've decided to sit Wifi Wifie down over the weekend & let he know I've given up smoking. She currently sick with the bug I had, so I'll be gentle with her.

I've been having a tough day of it today. I've still got some left-overs from the virus I had earlier in the week and just after midnight I had some severe stomach cramping ... I think I lost a couple of kilos before I went back to bed 1/2 an hour later. Despite doubting I had anything left to give, I've since been 5 more times starting at around 6am. Some for real and some as Shakespear put it "a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing."

An early night for me tonight. I've programmed Coro to record & I'll watch it over the weekend.

Night all & as Dave Allen used to say "may your God go with you."

    Congratulations Bruce 3 weeks is fantastic! Hope your virus gets gone real soon. Are you playing it safe deciding to tell your wife over the weekend. With her sick now she probably won't be bothered about giving you what for, for not sharing?. Hope you both fully recover over the next couple of days and keep up the good fight.

    Thanks all.



    Something weird happened a little after 8PM. The TV suddenly switched itself on in the back room. Took me a while to work out where the voices were coming from. Once I got back to bed it did take me a couple of hours to finally drop off again, but I must have got nearly 10 hours sleep. I'm feeling much better, sitting here watching Coro. The recording "broke" at about the point where the TV switched on. Luckily I'm past that point now and still watching.



    Plans for today include chillin' out & not smoking.



    @Maanu I don't call her that, except here. I didn't want to call her "The wife", as it's too cold. I'm already using my real given name & the first letter of my surname. If I used her given name it would pretty much positively identify us. The wifi bit is she likes browsing the web on her android tablet & the ipad we won, I prefer using a desktop with real keyboard.
