10 oct 2014 what a great day yesterday was the outstanding resistance to heat

http://facebook.com/MSVideoDiary

I’m walking down the path to the beach so I can do the whole journey with my top off.

yesterday was so great, I had the best time with the alcohol and the heat, in terms of handling loads of each!

it was such a good time with my brother and sister in law, and I enjoyed all the shenanigans in the tents

there was even a part where there were some guys who hijacked the beer counter and started giving people free beer

I got Al to go and fill four glasses of which I drank 3 which gave me enough dutch courage to go and fill my own glass again

that is until the feds came and ruined everything

oh but I’m a bit nasal today, my voice is probably going because of the mild hangover I had this morning when i got up

oh to have a good time again!

9 oct 2014 broken glasses and nearly NICE about sativex

http://facebook.com/MSVideoDiary

turned out nice again din’t it? :)

oh but I lost my sunglasses because my bastard brother didn’t give me a little screw to fasten the lens.. fancy that, a CEO of a company not interrupting their corporate business for a screw? haha

it was supposed to be stormy today but it turned out nice, hopefully it’ll be nice for the Port Cup which I’m going to tomorrow in my brothers company marquee

kind of like Ascot but with bumpkin Australians :)

but I want to say thanks for the feedback on Tai Chi and I still haven’t reached out (in 3d) to Richard to ask him.

but no matter, he’ll be good to give me info whenever I need it.

and what about the proposed 5:1:1 diet? that’s what I want to do with my belly when I get back to Lancaster.

it’ll be 5 days of net 1200 calories and one cheat day where I can drink beer and eat fast food and one day of fasting on 500 calories or less

do you think that might work?

will be interesting to see what it does to my belly.

oh and I forgot I could talk about NICE and their ruling on sativex but I ran out of beach..

I’ll talk about that another time

toodle oo!

8 Oct 2014 how I can tell if I am about to have funnies

http://facebook.com/MSVideoDiary

I’m here finally on a windy beach, sorry about no video yesterday but I was too busy working on some thing for the Chinese takeaway.

do you have any idea how much concentration it takes to edit, add and check Chinese items on the menu when they’re all in Chinese?

lots! that’s what.

so that took me all day and by the end I’d had enough of it so I couldn’t be bothered to make the video. so I didn’t.

And my sister in law sent me out with provisions to walk it off and lo and behold , I feel a thousand times better!

and do you know what else makes me feel better? yoga.

but the problem is with the yoga teacher I used to see at the neuro drop in center has a very northern accent and I can’t stand to hear words pronounced like that .. sereneteh , tranquliteh

ooh! it grinds my gears.

and that made me want to do Tai Chi, my friend the pathologist for the FBI (or is it NHS?) has made a mention of it a few times that I’ve seen on facebook so I want to investigate that in Lancaster when I get back

perhaps I can reach out to him and ask and also, I can ask YOU

what do you think of Tai Chi if you do it? how is it benefiting you Continue Reading

6 Oct 2014 underwater in the pool with a robot (short video)

http://facebook.com/MSVideoDiary

I’m at home today after going for lunch with my brother and finding out that we’d have to wait an hour for food, no way!

so we got a robotic pool cleaner instead and you can almost see it under the water while it does it’s thing , it’s a bit hard to see because Mike has been renovating the pool area and it’s had a fair bit of building stuff in it

sorry about the sound, there’s no mic when it’s in the waterproof housing so you can just about hear me and that’s why it so short today, nothing to do with the beer I’ve already had today :)

5 Oct 2014 up a big hill and minor brain fart this morning that was fixed by love

http://facebook.com/MSVideoDiary

Here I am up a big hill called North Brother

and here we can see the middle brother and the south brother too, I was reliably informed by the locals that I managed to get on camera.

and as I take you over to the other side to see the spectacular view, I have time to tell you about the moment I had this morning where I found out some news about home that almost spun me out

oh it could have been so much worse, especially in China at sea!

thankfully my niece sensed my impending doomy MSarian mood and gave me a big hug and said, “I wove you Uncle Andy” and patted my back

is there any better thing that the uncoditional love of a child? that, and doing some mindfulness meditation enabled me to leave it behind and continue with the day

wow, that sort of thing knocks me out for days normally

Australia and family must be so good for me :)

and just enough time to get wow’ed by the spectacular view on the other side

catch yer laters!

4 Oct 2014 a bit from the town centre and whistelstop tour of the museum

http://facebook.com/MSVideoDiary

This one is for John Cowburn who suggested that I get some footage from the town centre and i did one better by getting the history of the town

I visit the Port Macquarie historical museum and I’m allowed to wonder around the place by the volunteers, Carolyn and Pat..

see the introduction by Teddy (until he breaks down)

and a quick look at the fashions down the ages in Australia and finally, Carolyn gives me some information about the koalas on the Koala trail

You’ll see one representation of a real koala and one who is all leafy and tactile!

a bit longer on this video, I tried to get it down as fast as possible so I don’t use up all the time but even so, it went on for about 11 minutes

hope you enjoy it!l… keep the suggestions coming :)

3 Oct 2014 what should I do to keep you entertained

http://facebook.com/MSVideoDiary

on the beach again

and my brother asked me if there was anything I wanted to do while I’m here in Australia and my answer is no

I’m bloody pleased with how the day goes.

I tell of my schedule and maybe you can tell me if I am missing something, well it is a bit boring saying about what I do all day but I try anyway!

My missus alluded to the fact that I should be working and rather than become undone with arguing with her, I do some work every day.

It’s amazing how much work you can do in two hours!

And after lunch made by the lady Martina, I go for a walk and then get picked up again by Martina and once I’m uploaded the video I’m at home

but what do you want to see on these videos?

let me know in the comments what you would like to see while I’m here…

2 Oct 2014 oh to sleep again and brainbox Andy does a whole module of the course

http://facebook.com/MSVideoDiary

do you remember the night of no sleep? I had that the other day and someone mentioned about playing a youtube video about waves crashing on the beach and I thought that was a good idea

I do that at home but it’s different soft music but last night, I decided to use drugs to get me to sleep and had a sleeping pill

hooray! I had to get up twice to pee, once was when it was light and I was able to go back to sleep both times.. so good

and because I had such a good sleep and because Martina took her parents and Madeleine to town, I had some quiet time

so I did some studying for some stuff that I’ve been putting off until I had all my faculties about me and today was a good time

and I finished the whole module! that normally takes me a week to go through the 6 or so videos and take notes

but it went so quick and it was brilliant to finally get there, I am doing this course properly and turning up almost every day to do the stuff because I know that is basically all you have to do , just turn up and make the effort

that’s what I did last time and it earned me some big bucks, so I am doing it again!

I’m off all the way Continue Reading

1 Aug 2014 expensive meals and insomnia last night

http://facebook.com/MSVideoDiary

I’m at the Little fish vineyard for lunch with my brother, his wife and her family for a spot of expensive food

by golly it was expensive! $30 for a ploughmans lunch… strewth mate!

so am walking (away from the bill) along the vines for todays video and I will tell you about the dreadful insomnia I had

oh golly I was stressing about a big thing that turns out I didn’t need to stress but, you know how it goes!

I finally got to sleep after admitting that I couldn’t do the whole thing and just to do the minimum to see if it was possible and worry about the rest later

and what do you know, I found out that I wouldn’t be able to do the thing without doing the big thing that I’ve already accepted that I couldn’t do

sweet!

and of course, the number 13… see it?

30 Sep 2014 the tale of the ten bob pomme and the nearly disastrous bus ride

http://facebook.com/MSVideoDiary
I am on the windy and sunny beach… haha , one day on a windy and sunny beach

I’m a bit tired today but not to worry.. I bought a gift for my brother , a big bottle of CK1

it’s only so I can have my little bottle back, if you know what I mean.. that’s how I roll

and what about the northern monkey at the bus stop, he was one of those ten bob pommes, back in the day you could emigrate for just a tenner

I can’t emigrate because I’ve got MS, you can’t come if you are going to cost the health service anything

but what about the geezer at the bus stop?

he was chatting up a couple of ladies, one of them with gammy teeth

and then suddenly there was a street bum who go involved.. the guy didn’t follow the non attracting trouble rules

1. don’t make eye contact
2. don’t volunteer information
3. don’t engage in conversation

well, this drunkerd had something to say when the northerner said something about “what would you do if I did?”

“I’ll punch your fuckin face in!” said he

oh nooes! i though, I might have to get involved to stop the old guy from getting punched

see what happens in the video…
