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.

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?

Every cloud

I was running late for my backup train this morning so I had to skip breakfast which I never do. I caught the train but was then called back to take the boy to the doctor. Although not ideal it did mean I could go home and have some porridge.

Wasting time saving time.

I’m always trying to find ways of best utilising my time mainly because I don’t have much of it. That’s why this Monday I tried to record a prongcast (a podcast I do with my mate Prong2) during my boy’s nap time.

There was always a risk this wouldn’t work as his nap times do vary but I thought it was a risk worth taking.

Naturally things did not go to plan as the boy didn’t take his nap til about 10 mins after Prong2 had gone home. I doubt I’ll be doing anything like this any time soon although knowing me I wouldn’t fully rule it out.

Nigel or Keith?

New parents are not giving their newborns the names Nigel & Keith. It begs the question, if you could save one of these names which one would it be? Let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic

It’s also made me wonder if Keith Farage would have helped secure Brexit or would Nigel Chegwin have presented The Naked Jungle in the buff? We may never know.

Jobs for the boy.

My one year boy has just started taking his first tentative steps. He is however good at kicking a ball whilst holding my hand. With this in mind I was wondering what’s the earliest age Premier League clubs offer parents a ‘financial inducement’ to join their academy. The sooner the better from my perspective.

If not a Premier League footballer, I’m thinking a forensics officer as he has an inbuilt ability to find the smallest of bits. There would be some danger that the evidence would end up in his mouth but I suppose that’s the risk of employing toddlers.
