For those of you that know me on Facebook then you will know that I have decided to spend less time on there and also to publish this daily journal, every other day for a few weeks while I catch up on other things that need doing. For those of you who are not on facebook then this journal will for a short period of time be written every other day and not everyday as it has been for the last two years.
Saturday 10th August 2013
Saturday started off bright and sunny, I had a decent nights sleep after a freaky Methotrexate Friday, but had a decent nights sleep and woke up at about 3.30 to use the bathroom but apart from that slept through from about 11.30 until 7.30,

Well once I have checked emails and facebook I have a wash and shave and then wander round to Tesco Express to get the morning paper and then get back home and settle down to read the paper and listen to the local radio. Pauline phones to say that Her and Gordon will be coming down to the their flat in Southsea later on to collect a couple of bits and pieces so will come in and see me for an hour or so as Pauline has a couple of shirts of mine to bring back and also she wants to take my dirty laundry back so she can get it washed and bring back on Tuesday when her and gordon come down to take me shopping. Once I have spoken to Pauline I then get on the computer to get started on the Family History research.
I take a break from Ancestry at 1.00 to get some chicken soup for lunch and then continue again at 2.00. At 3.00 I get a text from Pauline to say "Get the kettle on" so her and Gordon are on the way round so they arrive and we have a coffee and a chat for an hour, and then Pauline collects the washing and they are then back on there way to Waterlooville. They have settled in to their new home and Misty seems to like it there as does charley the cat so everybody has settled in OK.

Sunday 11th August 2013
Well it is a very different start to the day today than it was yesterday, yesterday I woke to blue sky and sunshine, today I woke to Torrential rain, although it is still very humid. Not so good a night last night, I woke about 3.00 this morning to use the bathroom and had a splitting headache, I was soaking in perspiration and it was so warm and humid, took a paracetamol and drank a bottle of water, and within 20 minutes the headache was gone, I hate it when I de-hydrate at night, so I put the fan on to circulate some air and went back off to sleep and woke again at 8.00 am.

Pauline phones back to say that all is Ok, so we have a chat and then I get some porridge for breakfast and then get washed and dressed before putting on the TV and watching the morning news debates on the TV. One of the subjects is about the amount of money being paid to the people who run the large charities in this country, that is why I will only give to local charities where I know they are run only by volunteers and I know where my donation goes.
Once that Program finishes a do a quick check on Facebook and then an hour on my f=daily journal before having a look at some of the old maps of Portsmouth and trying to locate the paperwork and books on the hilsea lines
