I want to try so hard to get back to writing a daily blog so, I thought I would start today. That all went up the wall when I first tried writing as something took my site down had to get my lovely brother to fix it for me. At the moment I have my niece Hannah staying with me, which is nice and she is actually behaving and I have had no attitude from her.
Tomorrow we were meant to be going swimming, but the pool is shut so, we are going to be doing the housework instead. I hate doing housework, but it has to be done. The weather here has got a lot better we had nothing but the sunshine, which is making me a lot happier. Hate it when it’s dull and grey as there is not much to do when the weather is like that. Though my partner goes into hiding during the warmer months as he blackouts when it’s too hot. As, you all know I like to crochet and I have decided to do make a round temperature blanket which you do by picking a time of the day and either the highest or lowest temperature for that time and do a row for that temperature. So, I have picked midday and the highest temperature. I started this on my 29th birthday and it will end on my 30th. So, I will have something to remember my last year of my 20s.
I am going to go for now and I will write another blog tomorrow maybe have a Sunday selfie as I haven’t done one them in ages. Until then bye for now
Hi little llama readers how are you all? As you can see from the title of this blog I am feeling very rough and everything hurts. I have actually managed to book myself a doctor’s appointment for today. It is a big shock especially with my doctors as they are always full and I did not book it until 10 am there normally all gone by 9 am. I think I have a sinus infection which I haven’t had in years hopefully the doctors can give me something for it. Yesterday my cockatiel Lola had to go to the vets as she has had some bleeding when she goes to the loo. The vets think this is either a slight yeast infection or because of this year season thinks she has laid too many eggs so, on the safe side gave her two different antibiotics. We are also looking into getting both are female cockatiels in to have a hormone implant to stop them both from laying any more eggs, but there is big risk with birds going under antistatic which I am not too happy with and wouldn’t want to lose them. I am really in two minds whether to let them have it or not. We also spoke about my cockatiel bobby who is 30 years old about what happened to her on Saturday night and they still think she had a stroke and some of Lola’s antibiotics may help her. She is doing okay she did at first lose the use of her legs, but they have slowly started being able to be used even though she finds it easier to just drag herself about. She has started to like head scratches which she hated before.
Well that’s enough on them at the moment we are in a bit of a storm that the UK government have called storm Doris. Who actually came up with these names? We had load of different names for them and yeah now we know more it’s a different storm from the last, but surely people know that anyway? I really need to stop moaning we only live once. I wonder what the temperature is for today. The reason that I am doing a temperature blanket. Which is when you take the temperature of a set time of day and do a line of that colour for the temperature and after 365 days you will have a finished blanket. So, far my blanket will just be blues and greens, as it’s still cold. I don’t feel like it’s ever gone to warm up and I will be stuck with catching colds and other bugs all year round. Well I am going to leave this hear and maybe talk to you all later bye for now
Now that I am 29 years old (17 Feb. was my birthday) I have been thinking what have I done with my life? I do look back on my life and wish I had done better in school knuckled down and actually got good grades. I wish I ignored the bullies instead of retaliating all the time because looking back it only gave them a boost to do it more maybe they would have got bored and moved on to someone else, but I also think actually them bullying me, made sure they were leaving others alone and I think that’s all I cared about at the time. I used to hate going to school I also thought bullying would stop at college, but it counties there. I didn’t do badly at college as it was by then I started to ignore them and knuckle down and get on with my work I did well, but failed my last course, but it was more to do with placement and my tutor not allowing me to do two weeks more placement to complete the course. I am enjoying things more now, but I do have bad times in my life now, but I try to come to terms with them and just get on with life. I just keep telling myself we only live once and I need to enjoy my life now before it’s over.
The things I am looking forward to in the future be seeing my nieces and nephews grow up and have a good life. To one day marry my fiancé who makes me happy every day even when we argue he still knows when I am down and how to cheer me up. I am going to enjoy each day with my family and friends who are there when I need them and not use me like some have in the past who only want to know when they got issues. I hope you have enjoyed my little blog I will try and do more blogs regularly. As I have really been slacking on them. Well until next time bye.
On Saturday (28th Jan 2017) I had a slight accident. I actually don’t know how it happened but I will tell you the story.
It started with me wanting to put my cockatiel to bed they have to be slightly covered or they will keep shouting until they are. So, I climbed on the sofa as the cage is too tall for me to reach and all of a sudden I felt I bang to my head and my elbow was sore and I was laying on the floor. I cannot for the life of me think how I got from the sofa to the floor but did notice I smacked my head on a table as well as my elbow. My partner came to help me as I was holding my head. My oldest cockatiel bobby was still out as she was waiting to go to bed and all she wanted to do was getting to me to. When she did get to me she gave me a big cuddle like she was saying you will be okay. I have still today got a slight sore lump on my head and cannot lean on my elbow or crochet as the pain has also moved into my wrist. I haven’t been to get checked but don’t rush no more as I have broken it twice already and don’t want it to happen again. Don’t fancy sitting in plaster for 6 weeks. Got doctors Friday so giving it until then to ill if still bad I will get her to look at it and probably send me for an x-ray which will be quicker than sitting in accident and emergency. It seemed to of easier of early but it’s now hurting a lot so, going to go to bed and rest it.
For Christmas this year I got the Fitbit blaze which I have been using since Christmas day. Here is what I have thought of it so far.
In the box, you got the Fitbit Blaze tracker which looks nicer than other Fitbit watches that I have. Blaze Classic wristband I have had to buy a different wristband as I had a reaction to the original wristband
Stainless steel frame looks really nice also helps the watch stand out. Charging cable it didn’t come with a plug so have to plug into the computer unless you have a plug like your phone plug, which is what I have been using.
The Sensors & Components it has a 3-axis gyroscope, Optical heart rate monitor the heart rate monitor works well it knows when I have got my heart rate up into cardio and fat burn. I use this to make sure I am working hard in my workouts. Altimeter, Ambient light sensor and a vibration motor
The Display is a touchscreen colour LCD which is crystal clear and auto changes to the light. Battery and Power the Fitbit is recommended that you charge every few days they say the battery should be fine for five days. I have been charging my Fitbit between three to five days depending what I have been doing. I do get all my notifications through to it so drains the battery slightly. the battery type is a Lithium-polymer and takes 0ne to two hours to charge. Mine so far has taken an hour to charge.
it has Bluetooth 4.0 which always stays connected to my phone or computer. it also saves up to seven days of detailed motion date minute by minute. Saves daily totals for past 30 days. during exercise, it stores your heart rate date each second and at other times it’s five seconds. I have not had any problems and as always connected to my phone so always syncs the information.
Fitbit Blaze is sweat, rain and splash proof, but is not swim proof. it is recommend taking it off before showering, as it’s best for your skin if the band stays dry and clean.I have not doubled checked that if it is or not as I dot want to break my Fitbit and not advisable unless you are going to buy yourself a new Fitbit. If Fitbit Blaze gets wet or if you sweat in it, remove and completely dry the band before putting it back on. Give your wrist a rest by taking the band off every now and then, and regularly clean your band and wrist. I clean my Fitbit every day before and getting up to make sure I don’t get any skin issues I also wear it on the different wrist at night then I do during the day.
The Fitbit Blaze Classic band is made of a flexible, durable elastomer material similar to that used in many sports watches, and includes a surgical-grade stainless steel buckle and frame. The Gunmetal Blaze features a gunmetal stainless steel buckle and frame made with a premium PVD plating process. The Pink/Gold Blaze features a 22k gold-plated stainless steel buckle and frame also made with a premium PVD plating process.I am allergic to one of the materials in the Fitbit band so had to buy my own band for it.
Like all heart rate tracking technologies, accuracy is affected by physiology, the location of the device, and different movements.Love seeing my heart rate as it also then shows me if I need to work harder or not in my exercises Environmental requirements the device should Operate between -10° to 45° C for it to function correctly and a maximum operating altitude: 8,535 m
Syncing & Notifications it is using Bluetooth LE wireless technology, Fitbit Blaze sends smartphone notifications and syncs automatically to computers and iOS, Android and Windows devices. Certain features like smartphone notifications or Connected GPS may require Android 5.0+ I can get notifications but, I cannot connect it to GPS as my phone is poo. it syncs to Bluetooth up to 6.1m I have had no problems with syncing the Fitbit to my phone running android or my computer running windows 10. I also use the watch to control my songs on my phone. all together I have preferred this Fitbit more than the charge I had before and would recommend it to people.
