So, I got monumentally bored on Boxing Day. This was the result…. Track one: “Do I wanna know?” – The Arctic Monkeys. 2013 With the crispest, cleanest opening I’ve heard in a long time, this is the first song on the Arctic Monkeys’ 2013 album, AM. I love they way they play with metre, which …
So this playlist deserves a little explanation. I made it for a friend of mine who was going through a particularly bad patch in regards to his negotiation of the fairer sex. In fact, he’d spent many days spitting fury about our capability for duplicity, self-deception and inconsistency, not to mention personality disorders, sexual dysfunction …
Today was a real struggle, and although I managed to stitch my hour of walking together from tramping across Hoxton, Gatwick and Dublin – it wasn’t a good feeling….
Another run this morning – along the Regents Canal – for an hour. And then a half day on my feet facilitating a pitch-off session. It felt good to do the running!
A yomp, involving a suitcase and a rucksack, from Victoria to the Euston Road. After a work day that began at 04.45am. And eventually lasted until 23.00….. yikes. Got my steps done though!
Well now here’s a thing…. my 06.00 walk this morning turned out not to be a walk at all, but a run! I’m not sure what possessed me (and I didn’t run all of it non-stop to be honest), but there you are. I ran 5k. I made up the steps deficit with a ramble …

A poorly dog led to a disturbed night and some truly appalling cleaning up required in the kitchen. Yuck. Remedied only by a walk in the woods which turned into a soggy mess – snow melt and golf course drainage trenches combining to create enormous seas of mud in otherwise well kept footpaths!
I’ve upped my steps target. And strode out early this morning for nothing more energetic than a haircut. Although I did manage to get my hour in at lunchtime, eventually.
A short sharp hike with suitcase and rucksack from Mayfair to Victoria today. The first daffodils and the first cherry blossom of the season.
