37000 steps

I did 37000 steps on Friday, this is all tracked by the samsung app.  It also thinks I walked 30km.  I'm not sure how accurate it is so today on a another walk I used my run tracker and think it might exaggerating my distance some what.

Run tracker 8km
Samsung phone 10.5km

Maybe samsung thinks i'm taller than I am in reality so would have a longer stride.

6 year anniversary of the 'new' House today

We moved on Friday 13th 6 years ago. I was also due to head to North Devon on a stag do that day. Airless didn't let me leave till I at least make her a bed. 

She really is a fat cat

Josie! Not there. Or there.

Hmm, comfortable bed. I moved Josie out of the pram so she found somewhere even better. The bedside crib. Doh! 

Living the dream

Playing football manager whilst simultaneously watching the bundesliga and the coppa Italia. 

We've recently moved back to Virgin TV and now have access to BT sports so thought I'd give it a whirl. 

Blood work

I have blood for the 50th time this week

A week and a bit later

We've been spending a fair amount of time on the castle lawn recently

It's basically on our doorstep (300 ish meters) from our front door.


Flo gets to run around like a loon and we get a bit of piece and quiet from the building works next door.  Hopefully things will quiet down on that front soon as they've finally taken down the scaffolding.  Now all they need to do is repair the our side path which has been fucked over and replace the fencing which is looking terrible since they torn down the existing panelling.

Well that was an interesting few days

The Clark family now has a new member.

May I introduce Arthur Robert Clark aka The Dude


After drinking a glass of wine or three / four on my regular Wednesday night sports night (Watching Liverpool lose to Arsenal 2-0 on the last day of the season back in 88/89, not my choice) I was about to go to bed when April tells me that she thinks her waters have broken.  Eek.  This was 2.5 weeks earlier than we were expecting. 

April called the midwife who said she'd better come in but there was probably nothing to worry about.  I was going to stay at at home to look after Flo and luckily our friend Laura said she would take April into the maternity ward.

Three hours later I get rudely woken up in my bedroom by my mate Jono, he and his wife Laura had been called by April as apparently I wasn't answering my phone.  20 missed calls.  Whoops!  I specifically turned my 'do not disturb' off but it can't have worked as I didn't hear it.

I quickly got dressed and headed to the hospital. 2 hours later, little Arthur arrived.  After staying over for one night they let us go the next day.

So far he's been brilliant, surprisingly chilled and we've even managed a little sleep.  We're back home now and have actually managed to get Flo down for a nap whilst April and Arthur sleep upstairs, hence me having 5 minutes spare to write this.

Flo's been good and she's looking forward to play with her little brother.
