Okay, I got back on Thursday, but haven't posted pics yet because:

a) They need resizing and sorting out because there are thousands of them and I just haven't even started it yet

b) I can't be bothered.

Yeah, I'm in that sort of mood again. I'm tired, restless, can't sleep, don't want to wake up, don't want to do anything, and therefore bored.

So, just a few things then.

I've signed up to sing with the Midland Festival Chorus this year, for the first time. We're performing Dvorak's Stabat Mater at Worcester Cathedral on October 13th, so if you're anywhere near you should really come and see us! I'm excited because we have to learn the piece before the rehearsal, and be note-perfect and I've never had to do that before. I've also never heard the piece but I'm told it's wonderful.
I'm actually quite enthusiastic about getting started with it, but I have to wait for the score I ordered to arrive. Which sucks. I want to learn it now, dammit!

Healthwise.... the tests I've had done recently have interesting results.

Glycosylated haemoglobin/HbA1C (sort of long-term blood sugar): normal
Fasting blood glucose: normal
Cholesterol: low
Blood pressure: 130/100 (pretty high)
ECG: normal

It's slightly puzzling, especially the normal sugar tests. Nurse thinks maybe I'm just not responding well to insulin or intolerant to glucose rather than being properly diabetic, and I've got to have a glucose tolerance test to shed a bit more light on the situation. And my blood pressure really needs sorting out. I have medication, hopefully it will go down.

So yeah. And I really need to find something interesting to do before I die of boredom and/or obsessively read every book in the world. Maybe I need some friends.


  1. hey you have friends!!!!

  2. I know Nic, I just don't really have friends I can phone up and do stuff with when I'm bored.

  3. Looking forward to seeing the pictures of you holiday.
