Well, I am off for a weekend break to Torquay with my parents. I can’t remember the last time I went away with them, it must be over four years at least! I have been up most of the night in pain with my stomach, this has occurred a lot recently. I know the main cause is, but I won’t go into detail about that, but what I will say is the side-effects take my energy away.
Anyhow, before I talk more about current events, I need to tell you a few updates before I forget. Let’s start off with the mobile phone saga, you will be happy to know the problem has been resolved. I don’t want to say much about this, but even though it has been resolved I have been left feeling let down by the mobile company because I was treated like dirt. When the problem was resolved, I had a call from the head manager in customer relations. They explained that the problem had been resolved and that he could close the ongoing complaint, at this point I became very annoyed, they were trying to get away with everything they caused! I said to the manager that the problem is resolved, but the complaint was not resolved. After an hour of explaining, the manager agreed that it wasn’t resolved, he asked what they could do to resolve the complaint to make me feel like a happy customer. So, to be brief, I requested a reoccurring credit for a certain amount of months. They accepted the offer I made without questioning it, which was good for me because the problem could finally be resolved and I could put the stress behind me.
The final bit of news is about my recent book launch. Since the launch of BloogyBook Spring Season 2013, there have been several downloads through the iBookstore and the kindle, which is fantastic news because people are loving the books I publish. I guess things can only get better!
Anyway, I am going to lie down for an hour, well that’s if I can, I might get some sleep because I am starting to feel exhausted.
So, after a few hours sleep, we were all up and heading on the road towards Torquay. I am sat here multitasking: tweeting, writing and playing games on my iPhone. There is one let down to writing on the move, and that is the poor handwriting caused by the bumps in the road. On a different note, all this multitasking is helping me take my mind off the urge I have to use the toilet, and before you even say it, yes I did go to the toilet before I left the house!
I am currently playing a game with K called Hack Run, we have both became addicted to the game. This game is a simple computer simulation and your job is to hack into the system, as you go along you will uncover different things, including government secrets that their hiding.
After six hours had past, we finally arrived at the holiday park in Torquay. We did have one stop on the way, but that was because I was dying to use the toilet. While we were having a break, I brought everyone a drink because it was starting to get hot, and I was starting to get very dehydrated. I had a terrible hot chocolate, it was small and it tasted awful, where’s a Costa Coffee when you need one? See I am promoting Costa Coffee again; hint, hint, sponsor?
So, it has been many hours since we arrived, and the weather has been it’s usual crappy self, the rain has been pouring down for hours! Even as I write this, I can hear the rain bouncing off the roof of the caravan. The rain is beautiful at times, it is so relaxing to hear the rain as it slowly trickles across the roof, it makes you feel safe and at peace with your inner self. I am glad the weather is cool tonight because for some reason I am feeling very warm, I don’t know what’s causing it, but I know it’s starting to annoy the hell out of me! I must admit that it could be withdrawal symptoms from my medication because I haven’t had any today, which means I am going to get told off by many people after they read this.
Anyway, let’s hope tomorrow is a better day. I am hoping to take more pictures for the blog tomorrow, I did take some today, which I will add after this. So, off to bed I go!

What a rubbish nights sleep I had, every hour I was waking up. If it wasn’t one thing, it was another. I was feeling rough before I went to bed, so this bad night was to be expected. I remember waking up during the night with stomach pains, these pains went away after I over on to my other side. The most concerning thing about last night was that I woke up with toothache in several teeth, especially the baby tooth I have in my lower set of teeth.
Anyway, putting this aside. I crawled out of bed at around 9am and I felt all clogged up in my stomach, which was causing me to get many pains across my abdomen. I had to take painkillers quick or else it would take over the way I feel, and it would start to make me feel much worse. Mum made me some spaghetti and toast for breakfast, which I really enjoyed, I ate all of it, and I even ate all the toast!
On an unrelated topic. I have been having issues with my iPhone 5, for some reason it keeps coming up with a message saying no Sim Card installed. I am guessing there is something wrong with the Sim Card sensors because it has been doing it for a while, I can usually fix the problem myself if I had the Sim Card ejector tool, but seeing as I forgot to pack one, I will have to wait until I go into town to sort it, but for now rebooting the iPhone usually sorts it for a little while.
What a weird chain of events, I think Lady Luck is on my side today, but before I tell you about that, I will tell you about our trip into the local town centre. We were going into the town to get some shopping and to take some pictures with my camera.
When we arrived into town, we went across to the harbour so I could take pictures of the expensive yachts. As we were going around the town, I took a few good shots, but the saddest part is, I didn’t take take as many pictures as I would have liked too.
After our walk around the harbour, we went on the search for a hot drink. I wanted to have a drink from Costa Coffee, but according to my iPhone there wasn’t one for thirty-eight miles, which was totally wrong because we found one two streets in from the seafront. So, with that said, mum went in to Costa Coffee to buy the drinks. I had a large hot chocolate with no caramel shot, I wasn’t in the mood for the extra sugar boost because I was feeling very sluggish. While mum was grabbing our drinks, I went across to the local EE store to see what was wrong with my iPhone. I explained my problem to the assistant, and he confirmed my own suspicions, he said I think you have a faulty Sim Card sensor in your phone. I said to him that it was fine, but for now could he clean my Sim Card, he said sure I will do that for you. I knew this would be a short-term fix, but it will see me through until I get back home to Essex on Monday.
So, with that done, I walked back across the road to wait for mum. After a short wait, mum finally emerged from Costa Coffee with our drinks, it was busy in there. Anyhow, with drinks in hand, we needed to find a place to sit down. There were plenty of benches about, but we wanted to find somewhere quiet. So, to be brief, we found a bench and had our drinks. I didn’t like the taste of mine, it was very bitter, I think they used too much chocolate powder.
After we had our drinks, it was time to head back to the caravan, well that’s if we don’t get lost first! Mum ended up getting us lost by giving dad the wrong directions. So, we were lost in the middle of the countryside, I had no choice, but to use google maps to direct us back to the caravan. Surprisingly the maps took us the right way, and we arrived back at the caravan.
I think I will stop writing for tonight, I am starting to feel rough. I will carry this on tomorrow, off to the land of nod I go!

So, this Lady Luck stuff yesterday, it was the FA Cup final and Wigan was playing Manchester City. When the game had twenty minutes left, I could sense Wigan were going to score a goal. So, with that said, I followed my gut feeling and placed a bet on Wigan to win via my iPhone. Anyhow, to be brief, Wigan scored a goal from a corner kick, and they won the FA Cup. I ended up winning £22, which I was pleased about because I made £16 profit.
This wasn’t the last of my luck, I had £5 left over from my winnings and I thought I would have a quick flutter on the greyhound racing. So, with that said, I put the £5 on one dog and it won, this gave me £10 in return, talk about doubling your money! Anyhow, in total I won £32, which isn’t bad for a gut feeling!
Anyway, back to today. The day started out with a lovely breakfast, I had six pieces of toast and spaghetti. Even though I had this large meal, I still felt hungry afterwards, so I had no choice, but to have a yogurt to fill the tank. I was stuffed after all that food, it felt like I was going to pop like a balloon and fly around the room!
I was in luck today because we were staying on the holiday park. I was okay with this because myself and mum were going to go for a short walk to take pictures of the surrounding scenery. So, with that said, we went out and took the pictures, I will include these pictures after today’s events. After we took the pictures, we headed over to the Cafe and had a Costa Coffee together. As we were drinking our drinks outside, we were looking at all scenery around us and appreciating the view we had of Torquay. Several minutes had gone by and it was time to make a move because we needed to get some stuff from the shop. As ŵe reached the shop, we noticed that all the lights off inside, we thought the shop wasn’t open today, but it turned out that the workers were on their break.
Anyway, to be brief, we picked up some shopping an hour later, and since we came back, I have been lying in bed because I have been feeling unwell. So, on that note, it is time for me to sign off. I have a long day tomorrow because we are traveling home and it takes about six hours in total. So, tomorrow for me will be spent sitting in a car getting a numb backside, how exciting is that?
13 May 2013 22:36pm:
So, it turns out I forgot to write today’s blog. I don’t know how it slipped my mind, maybe old age is catching up with me, keep in mind I am only 24 and I am complaining about being old!
Today has been an easy day, four hours in a car, and then when I arrived home I went back to sleep again. While we were traveling home, I was dying to use the toilet again, I couldn’t believe it, I went before we left. I think my bladder has a mind of its own, it selects when it wants to work and ignores when I need it to work!
Anyway, after an hour of crossing my legs and feeling hot, we stopped at a service station to use the toilet. Once dad stopped the car, I jumped out and started heading towards the service station building to find a toilet. I was trying to run, but I couldn’t because it felt like I was going to wet myself, and the last thing I wanted to do was to make a miniature pond in the car park. So, to be brief, I found the toilet, and it was now time to refill my tank with a cup of tea. I don’t know why mum did this, but she only gave me half a mug of tea, you couldn’t even drown an ant in it. After I finished the tea, I thought to myself that wasn’t enough, so with that said, I decided to go over to Starbucks to get a large hot chocolate. I don’t normal buy drinks from Starbucks, but recently I took a liking to their hot chocolate, and don’t worry Costa Coffee, you’re still my number one choice! Anyhow, with drink in hand, I downed it quickly because dad wanted to get back on the road. I could have drunk it while we were driving along, but for some reason I don’t feel right doing that, maybe it’s the panic disorder taking over of my mind, either way, I don’t know why I can’t drink it while moving along in a car.
I am going to skip ahead here because it is getting late and I am feeling sluggish again. We arrived home around 1pm, and the first thing on my mind was I need something to eat. I only had a small breakfast, so as you could imagine I was starving! I ended up making myself some spaghetti hoops on toast, it was lovely, and it certainly filled a hole!
Anyway, after this, nothing much happened in the afternoon, I spent several hours in bed because I was feeling rough. Before I went to sleep, I received a call from Steve, we had a good chat, well we tried having a good chat, but my iPhone had other plans for that call. Throughout the call my iPhone dropped the call five times and in the end it made me very frustrated. I have restored the phone to see if it makes a different, but if it carries on, I will have to make an appointment to see Apple because it does look like the phone is faulty.
So, it is now time for me to sign off. I hope you enjoyed the blog and pictures, I will be blogging randomly until the start of June, but when this does arrive I will be writing every day of the summer season. Anyway, time to check this for mistakes and then I am back off to bed.
