I am in bed and will shortly be settling down to sleep. I am hoping that I will have less of a disturbed night than the previous one…

About 3am, I awoke from a deep sleep, having a coughing fit. I don’t have a cough and in my dazed state, it was a little scary. I could hardly breath. Was this the end for Sean? Quite clearly, as I am writing this, I survived.

I can only assume that I swallowed one of the small moths, which have recently taken up residence in our house, where no amount of killing (and eating) them, reduces their numbers.

This morning I had a dentist appointment. This appointment involved some minor treatment, and as I don’t enjoy pain, I opted for the anaesthetic.

The procedure went fine and no teeth were removed. I left the surgery £30-something lighter (thank goodness I have an NHS dentist, or it would be even more), and feeling like I had Walls sausages for lips.

I arrived at the office and got on with my work. Within an hour, I began to feel a little light headed. Now, this may be because I stupidly missed breakfast and was then told by the dentist to avoid food for 3 hours. It could also have been the drugs pumped into my gums.

I was hardly tripping my balls off, but I wasn’t all there. This was confirmed when, instead of putting a pile of letters I had just sealed in envelopes, in the post bag, I instead placed into the confidential waste bin, which is locked with a key not on the premises. It’s one of those things that I realised I had done wrong within a second of doing it, but nothing could be done… apart from reprinting and reenveloping all the letters, which is what I did.

I’m never getting high again.

I chose to forego my salad for today’s lunch. A colleague had bought a Coronation Chicken sandwich from Tesco. Inside the sandwich, hiding inbetween two lettuce leaves, was a giant dead moth. Luckily he didn’t eat it.

My leafy salad was also purchased from Tesco. Now, I know it’s unlikely I’ll find any dead creatures in my lunch, but I wouldn’t be able to eat my salad, without thinking there could be a dead insect, waiting for me under a leaf of ice berg.

Two weeks ago today, I was in Barcelona. I visited The Nou Camp – the biggest football stadium in Europe.

Tonight, I will be at Twerton Park – the home of Bath City Football Club – for their preseason friendly against Exeter.

Quite the comparison – Fortress Twerton will always be home for me.

So, there have been no blogs for the past two weeks. Pretty normal, given the fact I can be very lazy with posting.

This time, however, I have an excuse for my lack of activity. I have been on a Mediterranean cruise.

Despite being away, on the luxury P&O cruise ship, Britannia, I kept a daily blog, which I have now uploaded.

Sean's Stories

On this website, you’ll find me blogging (almost) daily about everyday life, living in Bath, working with computers, and the occasional bit of football stuff thrown in.

If you're expecting The Man Booker Prize, you've come to the wrong place. If you want to read a collection of sometimes eccentric, often disturbing and rarely amusing ramblings, gorge your eyes on this.
