Lately I have been feeling the best I have felt in a long while, its been amazing and despite the fact that I’m still in pain, I have been enjoying being able to be more active.

However yesterday I was on the laptop for almost the whole day, I was looking at the family tree again and I it was so interesting that I didn’t stop until about 6pm. At that point I asked my wife to put the laptop away and to make sure I don’t do anymore, I can get severe fatigue by being mentally active as well as physically and now it’s the next day and I am feeling the effects still.

I haven’t blogged as much recently and so I decided that despite the fact that my brain is telling me to stop, I would try and put something together for the blog and so this is my attempt.

Spring is always an amazing time, I feel better now that the cold weather is gone and I enjoy seeing our garden come to life. We have a bird feeder and a bird bath and other than the mass of starlings that seem to think my garden is a starling social club we have Gold finches, great tits, blue tits, coal tits, house sparrows (which aren’t in great numbers anymore) and a Robin.

Spring also means that I get to see more than the inside of our bungalow, winter seemed to go on forever and it seems that every year my health dips a little more. To be able to sit in the garden feels like a holiday and its a good job it does because a holiday just isn’t possible because of my health and the ever decreasing finances. We are lucky to live just over a mile away from the golden beach and brown water of the Thames, of course people think it’s brown because it’s polluted but in fact it’s brown because of the silt and sediment in the water and its actually quite clean and I have enjoyed swimming in it for many many years and its one of the things I really miss, I can still swim but the current is strong and my swimming isn’t as strong as it used to be and its not worth the risk.

So that’s my poor excuse for a blog post, my brain isn’t capable of producing anything better!
