So it seems that the big man who threw insults my way and bragged about having £800 in his pocket after his time-wasting eBay escapades has massive muscles but minuscule balls…and only £100 left in his spacious pockets!
It was him that turned up at my house yesterday looking rather sheepish – I wondered why he wouldn’t make eye contact, didn’t utter a word to me, and left pretty bloody sharpish – albeit the old lady falling over disturbed the Terry Treadmill taking process.
I stupidly decided to head to Google and found a picture of him…and it was the same chap who bottled out of making contact with me, instead getting his girlfriend to do the dirty work for him. I feel a little foolish – he must think that he has pulled a fast one really. He was rude, wasted my time, caused me hassle and stress, and now has got what he wanted for £100 less than originally agreed.
A few thoughts went through my mind…getting a local farmer to dump a load of manure on his driveway was one of them, and outing his name and that of the gym he wants to open was another…I really do hold a grudge I’m afraid. I try and be the bigger person and let things go, as it’s toxic to hold onto crap like this…but I stew on it and it makes me angry. Had I been sure that it was him yesterday, I would have sent him packing and would have transferred his money back to him there and then.
This is going to confirm my crazy-mind status, as Terry was merely a treadmill and not a human, but I am a bit sentimental about him. I wanted him to go to a good home as he was one of the key pieces of the jigsaw that helped me get back on my feet this year. I kind of hope that he did slide off the back of the pickup truck yesterday…if there is such a thing as karma…
So what would you do?
Anyway…I am feeling pretty pants today. I didn’t get much sleep at all and have a raging sore throat, snotty nose and am, rather unpleasantly, coughing up green gunk. My problem is that when I feel like this, all I want to do is eat. 99.9% of the population lose their appetite, but I seem to gain everyone else’s! This hasn’t been helped by my other half deciding to have treats…KitKat Chunky’s, Square crisps, pizza! Regardless of what cravings I might be experiencing, I have remained well on firmly on track though.
I popped to see the lady down the road with my other half this morning and sat chatting to her for almost an hour. She seemed fine, and said she felt okay other than the soreness on her face, but had some arnica and was using this. I again checked that she wants to come for Christmas dinner, and she does…I think Mum will be happy as it means she will have someone to share her Christmas pudding with!
Bless my other half, he was tearing up when she was telling us more about how awful the neighbours had been to her. They befriended her when her husband died, showing her where the registry office was – as she is not born and bred here and didn’t know her way around. Absolute bastards…I really do hope that I bump into them one day. There was no legal action taken against them, and I bet they are onto the next one…I sincerely hope that they try and cross a wily old bugger who gets them thrown inside!
So that’s it for me today…not much to talk about as I am feeling foggy and my brain hurts! I did manage to finish a booked called ‘Time to Think’ by Nancy Kline…some excellent content, but also some twee stuff that is a bit too much for my mentality and preferences to cope with…all about learning to communicate at a level that we rarely experience. I am hoping that I can utilise some aspects within my coaching sessions, although to be fair, I already do! And whilst I was reading, my silly old dog was sat in front of me with a feather stuck on her nose…
Breakfast: Fruit and yogurt.
A delicious food day! It started with a lovely fruit salad and yogurt. Lunch was leftover soup from yesterday, but I added a decent dollop of garlic to it before reheating. Dinner was good – my homemade coleslaw was made with Hellmann’s lighter than light mayo and a bit of the Greek yogurt, with garlic, black pepper and some chilli flakes. My snacks were immense, and inspired by Man vs Food…a cheese steak sandwich! I used my HEA for burger cheese, bought some rare peppered beef, added gherkins and cherry tomatoes and had this on toasted wholemeal rolls…they were absolutely delicious.
Exercise: Does blowing my nose hundreds of times count…and surely a coughing action works your stomach muscles?!
