Screen time to bedtime.

In an attempt to get better quality sleep (I can get to sleep quite easily but I wake a few hours later) I’ve decided to increase the time between using a screen (computer/phone) and me going to bed.

One problem with this is the only time I have to do my own thing is after my boy goes to bed and I go to bed, a time that is getting shorter & shorter. It’s also a time that is also filled with eating dinner, loading the dishwasher and making lunch/ironing clothes for work.

Having said that, the work I currently do in this time has never led to anything so maybe it won’t be too much of a sacrifice.

Feel free to let me know the amount of time you leave between last using a screen and going to bed. Cheers.

A flaw in my system

One of the few things I’m proud of is my things-to-do-list. It’s handwritten on a folded piece of A4 paper with different sections allocated for different aspects of my life. The only flaw in my system is that things that are neither a priority or fun can stay on lists for quite a long time, like fixing my boy’s scooter or sorting the toilet flusher. ( Don’t worry the toilet still flushes but the plastic pusher bit has come off).

Feel free to tell me about your things-to-do-list. Cheers.

Am I ill?

I’m not a big fan of weighing myself (I don’t think it’s a good indicator of health) but the other day my boy wanted me to get on the scales and like most things with him it’s easier to do what he wants than not. (good parenting)

Once on the scales I realised I’m probably the lightest I’ve ever been as an adult. This made me wonder if I am ill.

My weight loss could of course be down to me not drinking much lager these days or the fact I go to bed just after 10pm so rarely have supper.

I had previously presumed my general level of lethargy was down to me being tired, something that could be rectified by a few good nights of sleep (easier said than done). Now I’m not so sure.

With this in mind, am I ill or just tired & underweight?

Authority figure.

Some people seem to have an air of authority and some people don’t. I’m not going to say which camp I fall into BUT the other week I made an announcement in the Year 11 assembly (I work in a school) and 15-20 children started laughing, to the extent the Head of Year felt the need to say, “What’s so funny?!” There was nothing intrinsically funny in the message the humour came from the fact it was me delivering it.

Feel free to let me know if you struggle to be taken seriously (via the comments button or @anunknowncomic).

Domestic Man.

The other week, the other-half had a meeting.
I ended up ironing her outfit for said meeting.
I can’t help thinking, is this what I have become, Domestic Man?
In the absence of a recognisable career is this my future?

I’m hoping 2018 will be more productive.

Ps. Domestic Man has no known super powers.

The secret to free time.

I think the secret to how to spend your free time is to not do too much.

For example, last Tuesday I had a rare free day (I was off work and the boy was at nursery). I used this opportunity to align our patio door, clean an oven tray and record a #prongcast.

It’s not for me to say if I could have been any more productive but it was certainly a relaxing day (that might have had something to do with the pint and a half I also had).
