    In Desperate times...My Silky saves the day!

    Chapter 69. "TREETOTAL" (The New Improved Me) I am now 51. I started my Birthday with my usual 6 a.m session at the Gym which is my favourite time.It's empty except for one or two people.afterwards i dismantled two small trees for a friend and finished with a bike ride on my old faithful Raleigh.I live for fitness and a Mindfull life but then again i always did up until the age of about 19......I am very,VERY Happy to be to have found myself again.If i can do it,so can you!

    This picture was taken not long before i started the Gym and became Teetotal.Standard weekend antics.Lots of Pies...Japanese Whiskey,Pints of Old Rosie Scrumpy and several cans of Kronnenbourg 1664.What a difference 27 months makes.

    Sunday was the day i started going to the Gym and continues to be my favourite time to go.Some people go to Church or the Pub,this is of my favourite places of contemplation...

    Mick,i still havent found what i'm looking for[emoji6] i have a feeling i am a lifetime away from it and happily so.Stubby,Stihlmadasever,Mike Hill,Village Idiot and anyone else who reads this,it's great to be back.I just spend a lot less time online these days.In fact when i do pass an media/newstand or overhear people discussing T.V or current affairs it seems like there is a lot of Brainwashing going on and i am so far removed from that world now.. My last social contact other than Xmas with my family was the Arbshow/APF and will probably be the next time i socialise (Chessa if you fancy a road trip let me know). Gray Git i havent changed much.I am a bit Grayer at the temples,need my reading glasses more and more but on the plus side i have gone from 16.5 stone to 14.8,so i am slimmer but getting great results at the Gym and am a lot stronger.This makes climbing,dragging,giving my Grandaughter Willow shoulder carrys a lot easier...in fact life has become a whole lot easier.On the cusp of my 51st birthday i have become a new man!

    I've been doing a lot of soul searching....looking to the Natural world for answers.Utilising my new body and mind.Feeling so connected to the real world.Inspired by this mornings view.I sense an adventure.

    At the stroke of midnight i became two years completely alcohol free...I gave up television last year and i never read a newspaper.Other than the Gym i didn't really notice any run up to Xmas.All of this has created a brand new version of myself but the biggest change has been to my mind,my thoughts and how my brain functions.It is a feeling that i can hardly articulate.I just know that i love the world i now live in and the people i choose to surround myself with......New year's day has become my favourite day of the year.For me it really does mark a new start.I am so excited for the next 365 days!
