I went to my first self-service launderette today, I kept expecting Dot Cotton to come out with a fag hanging from her mouth spreading some new gossip she had just heard but she was nowhere to be seen.
I have rented a serviced apartment at KSpace in Leeds and tonight is my first night so I am still trying to find my way around.
I would guess I am now fully recovered after being ill last week and then missing my dinner on Friday night as since Saturday I just can not stop eating.
Dinner of the week
I am back from my weekly stay in Leeds and as I was at a different hotel this week I had to try the room service and it was great. The dinner of the week award goes to the Marriott BLU Hotel for an amazing fish and chips.
I have been horizontal for most of the day and before you say that sounds like a hard life then STOP. This is a dangerous hobby and has now spun fads like Planking which is the action of lying face down with arms to the sides of the body, I am more of a lying face up kind of person. People have been charged by the police and even killed, so before you pass judgement just take a moment to think of the casualties.
Leaving Service Stream
I left Service Stream on Wednesday after working there for nearly 4 years. It was a strange farewell, none of the new management came to say goodbye or even send an email so when it came to 4pm and time for me to leave I just picked up my bag and left.
I finally got my replacement Wooloot watch, well I say replacement I had to pay for a new one. For a product which is supposed to come with a lifetime warranty I was not happy when it broke within a week but even worse was the lack of response from Wooloot by email or twitter.
Drinking on the Streets
I have been driven to the bottle, and not only drinking but drinking and smoking on the streets of Melbourne like a true Aussie. Friday I had three leaving parties and one welcome party with a double booking at one point.
This month I took my body for its 35th year service. It was 35 years or 250,000 cigarettes which ever came sooner.I started off by visiting the doctor who then referred me to an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) specialist. I then had a medical at work where they told me I have high blood pressure and cholesterol but thankfully diabetes was ok.I then visited the specialist who told stuck a camera down my throat and made me talk whilst watching it on TV. He informed me I have some crazy acid problem, put me on some medication and referred me to a speech pathologist. After this appointment I rushed back to work to have my flu and swine flu combo injection.In one week I saw one doctor, one specialist and two nurses and I still have one more specialist to see who I hope looks like this :)
