Hello again. Welcome to Inso's World.This week has been a beautiful, challenging, tiring and rewarding week.Work has been really good. I have worked with some proper team players and have had a very positive week... even though the temperatures within the care home have been like a sauna and I have faced some challenging behaviour from some of the residents. The good thing about the challenging behaviour is that it isn't the resident's fault, it is their dementia so I can blame the disease and not the person which means I never feel the need to get upset with anyone.I can safely say that this week has really confirmed the fact that I love my job.In other news, the garden is now cleared and has been mowed and actually looks like a garden again... which is nice. As well as sorting the garden out, I also managed to get a trip out on my bike during the week and yesterday, I drove up to Aylesbury to see my in-laws. It was a lovely visit and although short, was very much worth the long drive.Alfie has properly sett
Hello and welcome to Inso's World.This week has been a bit all over the place.I have been going to work as usual and have had a really good bunch of shifts; as a result of some good team work. When I have not been at work I have been clearing the garden and on one occasion, while ripping out some rotten wood, I found a very cool toad (which I evacuated to a safe area). I still have a bit of a way to go but the garden is certainly getting there.Tuesday was a sad day. We had our lovely old cat, Fred (AKA Bouff and the Bear) put to sleep. He was fourteen years old and had been living with arthritis for a good few years (he was on medication for it) but over the last year, had developed some nasty growths in his neck and throat. We kept him going for as long as we could but he had just had enough so he was peacefully put to sleep on Tuesday.Click the Pic!Rest in peace, Fred.On Thursday, I went to give blood but have been told I can't donate for a year because I am anaemic. That came as a bit of a shock but it cou

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.I've had a bit of a day (work and a sleep on the sofa) so this post is a bit late and has taken me ages to write because of all the corrections...So. This week has mostly been about work, a few chores and a bit of hobby.My wife has finally got to a point where she is well enough to go to work and go out and about, as long as she takes it steady... so we have been shopping and out for a meal as well as having an evening at the pub so things are starting to get back to normal after her little illness (7 weeks isn't little...).Work has been good. I had my probation interview and they are keeping me on... so that is good news.Hobby wise, it has been a mixed week. I finished a sculpt but quickly flat-lined afterwards so no other sculpting got done (a mix of tiredness and the dread of sculpting in little batches were the issues)... but I did finish a sculpt so there was a positive aspect to the week's hobby. The sculpt in question is my Squat version of the Catachan hero 'Col

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.It's very nearly 2019 so I thought I'd look back over a year that has seen a lot of change for me and my family... plus a little bit of hobby along the way... so let's get started.Early in the year, things were pretty settled. I was at home, my wife was at work and things were ticking along nicely... then my other shoulder froze up so the painkillers came out again. As a result, I became lethargic and began to get a little bit house bound... so I decided to do something a little bit different, in memory of my Dad, and quit drinking for a year (the only exceptions were toasts for very special occasions and the passing of friends/relatives). Since 8th May 18, I have been on the wagon and have had seven toasts... I will be finishing this drought on 7th May 2019, which is the evening before Flora Day and the first toast will be to my Dad.Quitting drinking has made a big difference and I have been more cheerful as a result. I have also lost all of my 'drinking' weight and am
