I have managed to walk the legs off myself this weekend. Between Pokémon go and sugar skull trails with the kids. 

But it’s all worth it when they win a prize at the end. 

Plus the extra work out is great. 


Pokémon go

Myself and 2 kids have been playing this game since it came out. I think it is genius. Getting parents who loved it as children, to interact outdoors with their children. 

I used to sometimes struggle to get the boys to walk but it’s so much easier when Pokémon are involved. 

I know it’s had it’s time and maybe starting to die off a bit but I’m still walking those eggs and trying to catch them all. 


So a few things I found out tonight about swimming. 

First when swimming beside someone else in another lane, don’t race them, they don’t know you are racing them and they are probably a better swimmer. You are tiring yourself out. 

And second it makes you so hungry. 



Took the kids to see trolls. 

It’s an enjoyable watch, plenty of laughs with songs that will get stuck in your head for days. 

The story telling is pretty good, keeping the kids transfixed and the adults entertained. 

I liked it. One of the joys of having kids is able to go to watch cartoons at the cinema in the middle of the afternoon, without looking like a weirdo. 

7/10 in my opinion. 


Week 4 

Zero weight lost this week. I managed to stay the same weight, which is weird,as I have cut a lot out of my diet over the past month. 

In total I have lost half a stone in a month. 

Need to get more exercise. 



I have always enjoyed reading but for some reason I do more of it in winter than summer. 

I always try to read during summer holidays or in the garden on a sunny evening but can never get as involved in the book. 

Wonder if others are like this or is this one of my many idiocies. 


New toy

So today I gave in and bought a new iPhone 7 Plus. 

It’s a new shine toy and I love it. 

The next few days will be spent playing around and figuring out how the new features work. 

Wish me luck.
