Or “What I Have (Not) Done In The Last Year”. It doesn’t really seem that long since I retired, but it was back in February 2022. A year ago, I noted that I had spent a lazy few months, but that I’d soon be “getting…
During lockdown, I was using online shopping and grocery delivery, like many others. I started using both Morrisons and Ocado, but eventually settled on Ocado, as I like the M&S stuff they do.
I’ve been posting a bit about power stations, particularly the Ecoflow brand, so I thought I’d add this nugget of info about their X-Boost feature.
I’ve been looking at Power Stations. By that, I don’t mean Battersea or Hinckley Point. I mean the battery backed boxes that can power mains kit when there is no mains electricity available.
Of course, now Mastodon is the place to be, And many of those that I followed have now appeared there. Which makes it more interesting to me.
I retired in mid-February, so thought I would post how things are going.
The first couple of months of retirement saw me not doing that much at all – it was very easy to just laze about and not get around to getting things done. A lot of cooking and eating, TV and reading – particularly reading; I got through a couple of novels a week and made a good dent into my to-read list.
I’ve just received my 4th and 5th pair of Zeba shoes. That this excites me tells you something about me. I bought my first pair, which were light beige, in late 2019. After I had worn them for a month, I was so happy with…
I have had fun setting up the watch the way I want it, with a nice non-fussy face (ChronoBasic) and a personal target of 6,000 steps, rather than the usual default of 10,000.
As part of measuring my activity, I decided to get myself a Fitbit again.
I got there today, with Katie the beagle. As my first day out, I decided to just walk along the main path from the café then straight back again. But when I got to the end of the path, I felt fine, so decided to carry on, around Overton Lake. I was doing fine, then about three-quarters around the lake, my legs started to give out! But nowhere to go but forwards!
I’ve long loved Nene Park, and Ferry Meadows in particular.
It’s a nice lakeside area, but it has paved as well as rough paths, so is good for walking, even when it is wet and muddy in other places I visit, like Bourne Wood.
So the car arrived – a couple of months later than expected, but there have been shortages of chips to contend with. The showroom kept me well informed, and my Berlingo was still running fine, so it was not a problem.
