You may have noticed that there has been a hiatus on posting content here on the website and it’s been a systematic run of problems which have prevented me from being on top of things, as you are aware if you have been keeping up with the content here I moved into a flat and the move took some effort, and while I maintained content initially I had so many things to keep on top of including looking for work with enough hours to pay the bills which is quite the task considering everything seems to be zero hours or 1-4 hour shifts which is nowhere near anything that you can survive off let alone even afford rent. The council property itself was in a terrible state and I had to keep on them to get the garden sorted and then repairs made, which is still an ongoing process as repairs still need to be chased a year on, and the garden was only “trimmed” so I have to dig up the entire weed route structure as it seems to be knotweed and will just grow back vigorously.
Having been out in the middle of nowhere existing in a singular room out with no transport and no way to do anything my body and muscles deteriorated to nothing, so walking became difficult and I had to get back the ability to even move around places, now that my legs can walk albeit looking wonky as hell and only basic muscles not stretched or on joints it is time to move onto exercising properly and stretching to not only lose weight but get healthy again and bring the rest of my body in line with being capable of existing. Unlike neo from the matrix I don’t just survive inside a ship, I have to walk to shops and make food and outmaneuver much longer distances so it’s a slower process to restore normalcy.
Then the new neighbours moved in upstairs and it has been a terrible process of sleep deprivation and torture as they sleep through the entire day and were noisy all night every night in the room directly above my bed and any mention of them causing problems with my sleep just made them get worse and worse, then they started opening all the windows in this freezing winter making the house completely inhospitable, and they haven’t emptied the trash in nearly 4 months, so it’s been festering and piling up in bin bags outside the property, also ripped open and scattered across the garden, so trying to get them to be human has been horrible, the number of complaints I have had to file has been horrendous.
On the upside though, fighting back in other forms so they cannot sleep in the day just so I can sleep at night has been working so I’ve been able to get a bit better at keeping up with content, and my ex has come back into my life after I thought I had lost her forever after I was stuck in the middle of nowhere and it took 2 days to respond to her texts during thunderstorms, where I was located the buses ran twice a day, first thing in the morning and return at 4:30pm, phone signal was atrocious even on sunny days you were lucky to even get a signal. So after it took me two days of trying to respond she thought I ignored her and I’d lost her to someone else and she hated me. So it’s been a couple of years since then and she’s always been angry any time I’ve messaged, but this time when asking her out for valentines she didn’t say no, just she wasn’t well enough as she does have an illness that causes her major problems, but we’ve been chatting since then, and that instantly made me happy and realize how miserable I had been.
Long story short, basically I’m feeling happier now, I’ve got the neighbours under control so that I can get at least enough sleep to do more than be completely drained in the daytime struggling to not fall unconscious, I do have a lot of decorating to be getting on with so content may be slower coming out and I do have a backlog of reviews I need to do, but mostly the repairs are done and I’ve got anti damp things I have had to purchase myself so I feel more confident to decorate and everything won’t go mouldy. As a result of all of this I feel I have enough time to catch up on things and start producing content here again, provided nothing new comes up to change things. I obviously need to get a balance on getting healthy and back in shape, getting and making food, looking for work, decorating and putting up content, as well as getting a decent nights sleep. So it’s quite a bit to balance through the week, but I do want to start putting up content again, and apart from the time saving aspect I didn’t want to put up horribly rushed terrible reviews, both written and recorded for the site, it’s better to not put something up than to rush out something terrible in my opinion.
So reviews should start coming back to the site, there might be time balancing between decorating until I get all of that sorted out, but keep coming back and checking as reviews should start again soon.
