Thoughts of a middle aged man…..28 March 2014

The other day I had my long-awaited lung function test and it turns out I do not have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease at all. As I am a glass half full kind of guy I am quite pleased on the one hand, but on the other hand we still don’t know why I have this constant cough. What we do know is that it is nothing serious so I suppose I will have to be content with that for the moment and hope it clears up. I have to admit I am quite annoyed with my doctor though, why tell me I have COPD in the first place for the test to prove that I don’t.

Brian has severely aggravated his back again, he stumbled and fell in the gutter whilst getting into his workmate’s car the other day, stone cold sober as well. My poor man can’t take a trick, he is off work for a week and has been ordered to rest, easier said than done for Brian, he gets bored very easily. He is now blissfully sleeping, at least he is not in pain when he sleeps, although some nights I can tell he is having a bad night as he groans in his sleep which I find quite distressing as I am helpless to do anything for him.

I have had a pretty crappy day today, crappy is a technical term used by we body corporate managers. One of my owners obviously got out of bed on the wrong side this morning and decided to take his angst out on me, completely unnecessary. Unfortunately being in a service industry I have little choice but to take it, although I did stick up for myself. Anyway the result at the end of the day is that I feel like a piece of crap, thank you very much. I think I might have a drink tonight, oops, make that another drink. Hiccup!

There is a yappy little dog driving me right up the wall somewhere behind us, this dog yaps constantly for hours almost every night, it is driving me nuts.

On a brighter note I have just picked five apples from our apple tree. I have no idea whether they are ripe but they are going into a cake I am baking for friends tomorrow, Apple Streusel. Yum!
