22.35 .. I’m finally home .. post Surrey Police IAG meeting. Met some nice people, only heard one opinion that had my hackles up slightly .. I let it go. Mid evening meal was a choice of three dishes .. Sheppards pie 20%, Vegetarian lasagne 10%, edible (bland) chicken curry was eaten by most, inc. me.

Restorative Justice, was the debate tonight, Surrey allegedly is way ahead of everyone else. So the night was .. 30+ minutes meet and greet, I was one of 3 newbies, 60- minute lecture, lecture from Surrey's key advocate for Restorative Justice .. supper .. then group discussions on the lecture answering 3 questions.

Well they got there girl in the end, Surrey's LGBT liason officer caught me before I could pass go, feeling my collar gently, introduced himself and promptly asked me to help with their enquiries .. well, would I take part in some training exercises with some of there less T friendly officers, he conceded though they've done some training some officers haven't assimilated into properly understanding people like him ( he says he gets "T" totally .. :-) ).

I did fold under pressure ( none ) and have agreed to take part .. that will help reduce my outstanding leave days.

15.18 .. I’m queuing to get into the car park at Frimley Park Hospital .. Physio day.

Physio appointment this afternoon .. nearly an hour of questions and a few breathing exercises.

Physio spotted my ankles .. worse today ( heat maybe ) than for a few weeks, she was staggered that the medics have not really investigated my feet as an issue in themselves ..

She's going to try and organise a tread mill session for the week before I fly out to Brunei "to see what happens" .. been there before, think we know what's going to happen. Ho hum :-(

18.15 .. ON BBC TV news .. seems like there was some misleading of the public in the share sell off of  FACEBOOK .. only corporate bodies where told about the lower forecasts not made available to sucker public ..

Nice one Facebook .. so glad I didn't invest .. the marketed value sounded well hyped up !!

Memory Joggers ...

07.10 .. the alarm ..

It’s the Saturday morning weigh in, except I forget to do it .. probably about 15st .. <<sighs>>.

10.02 .. We head off to get Claire .. via the M3 at lightwater to avoid the golf traffic .. Mrs Schumacher is in the seat again .. 

10.41 .. We join the M1 ..

As we pass through J10, the southbound side is closed, looks like an accident .. the traffic goes for miles ..

11.01 .. We stop at Toddington services to get lunch stuff ..

11.14 .. Back on the road .. the southbound queue finally ends about 3 miles north of the services ..

11.23 .. a BBC traffic report says the M1 southbound queue is 14 miles and building to J10 .. so we’ll be going back via Oxford ..

11.48 .. We arrive at the pickup point .. no Claire .. I head for the loo ..

When I return the homes car is here and Claire is already in our car ..

12.02 .. We are back on the raod, the Tom Tom has seen all the traffic peeling off at the services here blocking the road through to Oxford .. so the TomTom takes us on to the M1 south down to J15 .. and off across towards the A5 and A41 ..

12.20 .. We are on the A5 “doing 70mph officer” skirting around Milton Keynes when there is a small bang .. followed by a lot of vibration .. Karen slows

12.46 .. Back on the road ..  .. only one man stopped to help after I'd changed the wheel, a very nice Asian man .. now limping home on the space saver ..

Day 2727. Sunday 27th May 2012.

Memory Joggers ...

Gosh a night from Hell with Claire ..

02.30 .. I’m aware of Karen getting out of the bed to go to Claire .. initially Karen takes the load, I wake nearly evrytime and put the light on for her ..

03.49 .. I’m woken to the sound of singing birds .. ruddy hell .. noisy what’s it’s .. and Claire is murmuring ..

04.00 .. I get up to Claire .. except Karen doesn’t put the light on for me so I catch a little toe on a box on my return .. gosh that hurts.

Up and down every 5 - 10 minutes means little sleep, Karen is worse off than me cause she had to do the same all last week ..

05.50 .. We’ve sort of given up .. so rather than trying to sleep we just snuggle up .. between shared trips to intercept Claire .. the TV goes on with Claire cam on so we can keep half an eye on her ..

07.30 .. We give up .. and get up ..

09.10 .. After one too many violent “threats” .. Karen gives Claire a dose of PRN ..

10.00 .. ish .. Claires starting to calm down and we take her downstairs again ..

10.10 .. Karen heads for a shower .

10.50 .. I head for a shower ..

11.35 .. I’m back in the lounge ..

11.42 .. ish .. Robert and Lorraine arrive .. Claire perks up for a while ..

11.53 .. I uncover the BBQ and light it .. I get side tracked and forget it’s on high.

12.05 .. oop’s .. the temperature gage is off the end stops at the high end .. over 500F .. I turn the gas down low ..

14.02 .. We head off to take Claire back while the going is good ..

14.08 .. Claire’s asleep in the back ..

14.16 .. We leave the M3 to join the M25 .. it’s looking good ..flowing somewhat faster than the 55 - 60 mph Karen is driving at ..

14.41 .. We join the M1 .. ETA is 15.24 .. rather early ..

15.37 .. We arrive at Northampton services .. a tad early, no sign of the homes car yet .. 

15.42 .. The homes car arrives .. my attention is drawn to the front nearside tyre .. it’s ruddy bald !!! This isn’t the first time either .. clearly nobody at the home takes responsibility for such things.

15.49 .. We head for home .. the sun in wrong place now so had to shut blind inside Violets glass roof .. too HOT !!! .. Loving it .. :-))))

16.59 .. We leave the M25 .. nearly home ..

17.18 .. We are home ..

18.45 .. The oven is ready .. I start to do the cooking ..

19.15 .. Dinner is served .. Waitrose Indian meal deal for two !!! .. this would fill 3 people.

19.35 .. We are stuffed .. no pudding tonight ..

Memory Joggers ...

06.10 .. The alarm ..

17.40 .. I head off .. but not for home .. I head into London to have a meal out with Jonathon .. the ex colleague now doing my old job ..

21.30 .. Back home, and put myself back on call .. had a lovely evening visiting "my old place" then having a meal out at probably the best Thai restaurant in London, "Two Point", 26 Crawford Street London W1H1LL. Gosh I miss my regular meets and fill ups there, the food was just amazing .. 3 courses with 2 drinks for £26 a head .. I could go back tomorrow.

Really strange how the old place has changed a little .. a lot in some places, but my solitary confinement cell ( engineering office / workshop ) hasn't changed .. spooky walking in that room. Mission accomplished on the work front thanks to my mutual back scratching friend.

Had a brilliant welcome by the owner of Two Point in Crawford Street, who turned to one of his girls saying they'd been talking about me recently and wondered why I hadn't been back .. my usual table was available .. ;-)

If any of my friends are up for a Thai at Two Point soon .. just say, it would have to be something major to stop me getting there !!

The secretary who booked appointments on the phone organised an early pre op check for me, to minimise disruption at work .. 08.30, saying it would take about 45mins to an hour .. the letter says "1-4 hours" .. ho hum, got a meeting at work for 11am.

Memory Joggers ...

06.10 .. The alarm ..

09.00 .. I’m in the doctors .. my back still hurting me from tyre changing incident on Saturday, my head is still aching a lot since cracking it on that beam a week ago .. I Think the Voltarol  I'd been taking has helped that too ..

However, I feel like crap .. My GP suspects I'm suffering mild concussion still since my head banging incident last week. Bulk supply of Voltarol prescribed for my back ( which eases headache too ). Resultant tinnitus, with back ache and streaming cold now makes me one happy bunny .. going to be a great weekend, on call.

10.15 .. I’m outside the office ..

Much of the day is spent trying to get an OB kit back together and parts gathered so Mel can do the OB at Aldershot on Tuesday ..

Frustrations @ work .. trying to make sure all the relative parts of our OB kit are together and the Dalet machine is synced up .. grrrrrrr .. missing parts, missing cables, missing ACE fob ( borrowed one for a couple of hours ) .. fine mess !!!

Saturday at home without Claire .. nearly always a Chinese night, especially if I'm on call .. tonights fortune cookies .. "YOU WILL RECEIVE A CHEERFUL CALL NEXT WEEK" and "A WISH WILL SOON BE GRANTED - SO BE CAREFUL OF WHAT YOU WISH FOR" .. well the first won't be from my mother .. the second will hopefully connect up with one of Karen's .. "you're going to fall in love" .. that has caused some discussion !!!

23.46 .. I head for bed ..

Day 2734. Sunday 3rd June 2012.

Memory Joggers ...

09.30 .. up and at it ..

Having heard and read great things of how beetroot juice is supposed to improve oxygen absorption, I bought a bottle from Waitrose yesterday and just had my first 150cl daily measure. Bottle warns of wee going pink, didn't warn that your tongue also does dark red, .. wondering how long for. I'll do this for a few weeks to see if my stamina improves.

On my Facebook profile ..

I have to ask .. is anybody / group organising a noisy welcome for those forcing commuters and citizens of this tax burdened country into over crowded road lanes so those lording it up at our expense get priority over us ?

If there is I want car stickers and air horns on my commuting Jazz to welcome them when they pass me in my delayed and pollution creating extended queues.

The person who designed the royal barges throne area was a thoughtless pillock who should be sent to the tower .. disgraceful.
What no hot air blowers just in case of English weather ?
What no rotate so that the long period by Tower Bridge didn't have to be stood up by our 86 year old Queen ?

All so simples .. shame on the designer and commissioner !!

Great news from Thailand .. where contrary to popular belief, TS’s don’t get an easy time, one has just one a seat in a Provincial Administration Organisation .. brilliant !!

21.15 .. .. and so to bed .. my back is really not pleasant .. work tomorrow for a few hours !!

10.30 .. I’m in work .. duty engineer till 9am tomorrow .. doing the necessary and waiting for Melanie to arrive to help load her van, which is waiting for her in the car park.

20.00 .. The jubilee concert .. It was a great concert, sorry to be the damp squib, but I found it sad that the older stars are clearly losing their once incredible singing voices, allowance given to Elton for recovering from pneumonia .. but an awful lot of high notes didn't get reached .. I'm sure my memory can't be that bad.

Memory Joggers ...

A bit of a disturbed night with Karen spending periods in the bathroom coughing quite violently ..

07.10 .. The alarm .. I’m shattered ..

07.42 .. Up and at it ..

08.32 .. It’s the Saturday morning weigh in .. 14st 12 ½ lb ...

08.40 .. Dressed, I head for the kitchen to sort out my breakfast .. but get side tracked by the laptop that’s been on all night .. seems the full scan completed only 2 hours ago ..

09.00 .. Finally .. I get to eat my breakfast ..

09.18 .. Karen’s mobile rings .. it’s the care home .. Claire left 15 minutes ago .. WTF .. they should have called immediately .. the pressure is now on us to get to the pick up point ..

09.27 .. We are on the rod in Violet .. bum .. I’m sure I’d left her in the drive full up .. clearly not .. next stop a garage

09.40 .. Karen drives onto the Shell Garage forecourt .. “temporarily closed” .. so we have to turn back and use the BP on the Egham Hill roundabout .. 133.9 ppl instead of 132.9 ppl at Shell.

09.51 .. Back on the road ..

09.54 .. We are on the M25 .. Mrs Schumacher is out of the box again .. worried about the head start Claire and minders have on us ..

10.15 .. We join the M1 .. our TomTom is definitely buggered again .. no

10.54 .. We’ve arrived at the pick up point ..

11.40 .. Karen pulls off into Toddington services .. I need the loo ..

Back in the car .. 

As a further invasion of our privacy, TOMTOM now require that you have to share your personal information to allow there live traffic service to work. I pay £49 a year for this service, it's not free, but they still want my information to use. For services that are free, one might expect to have to "pay" in some way, in accepting spam as a cost.

I've read what they say on there website .. but simply I don't believe them and don't trust them to keep my info safe. I'm going to have to register a throw away email account and try and change the registered account to the throw away one I guess.

New Gmail account created just for TomTom .. this will be my 6th concurrent gmail / googlemail account .. another one to add to my records at home, one to lose if necessary !! This brings my total including Yahoo and my own domain accounts to about 18 .. glad my memory isn't too bad at the moment, though I have to admit Thunderbird sorts most of those out for me ..

Karen returns from her trip into the services carrying a bag from M&S food .. that’ll be lunch then ..

11.56 .. Back on the road ..

12.21 .. back on the M25 ..

12.38 .. We leave the M25 and head up the A30 for home ..

08.15 .. Claire is laid out on the settee as usual .. asleep .. feel like going across and shacking her awake .. I go to the kitchen in disgust to sort breakfast and tablets .. 

09.20 .. ish .. Karen takes Claire for a bath .. on their return I stand and dry Claire’s hair while Karen goes and gets showered.

10.25 .. I head up for a shower ..

11.18 .. I’m back in the lounge .. settling at the computer for a while ..

11.35 .. Robert and his girlfriend arrive to see Claire .. it’s good news from Robert .. the bus company whose bus damaged his car when it was parked, without stopping, are paying to have his car repaired at the moment .. so he’s driving a loan Corsa but not enjoying it.

13.35 .. WE head off to take Claire back in Violet , via Waitrose in Sunningdale ..

Waitrose is not improving on their lacking fruit and vege department .. “Class 1" my foot for too much of what is there .. I do manage to get another Lardy Cake for Claire to take back with her .. 

14.24 .. We head for Northampton .. the ruddy TomTom still isn’t giving me traffic updates.

14.36 .. We join a rainy M25 at Egham .. 

15.15 .. I send an email to TomTom support ..

Dear support ..

Re TomTom 950 Live

My heap of junk, that causes me more stress than the actual driving around the M25, has for the last week or so been refusing to connect to your servers and get traffic updates.

Eventually through your so hard to navigate web site, I discovered that with some recent update I have to agree to share my private info so I can be spammed, to make this service work.

Yesterday I set up a disposable email address with Gmail to service this account only. Having set it all up, I can access things like google and fuel pricing .. yet still NO TRAFFIC UPDATES.

I know my traffic updates are paid up till the second anniversary / warranties run out point in Feb 2013.

Since my last complaints of it crashing and wiping out my map corrections, it's continued to do so with regular monotony .. at least twice a week, sometimes twice a day.

I am your worst advertising nightmare now .. colleagues have been buying Garmin's as a result of my near daily TomTom rants and postings on Facebook and Twitter, I wish I hadn't bought this one after my terrible experiences with the rubbish 720T model I stupidly bought with it's ill conceived plug in the bottom / smash off on the dash traffic aerial. Ironically, my first model 500 is still being used by son who I gave it too, with few hassles 5 years later.

As this device is pretty useless to me now, I guess it's best it comes back to you for sorting. I'll then return it every time it crashes till you have sorted it out to a point it's repeated crashes are bearable and I can resell it to buy a Garmin, which I know my colleagues are finding totally trust-able.

Yours, stupidly loyal and now seriously dissatisfied,

Sarah *******.

Guess what .. an hour later I got my first traffic notice in a week or so .. a coincidence ???

15.46 .. We arrive at Northampton Services ..

15.52 .. Back on the road ..

16.15 .. Magic .. We’ve suddenly got traffic on our TomTom .. so how is that ? Just in time to warn us of the back of the queue we join .. at least it’s moving queue.

16.40 ..  We rejoin the M25 .. spitting with rain ..

16.49 .. Karen gets cut up by a Volvo driver and it starts to rain properly .. as promised in this mornings forecast ..

17.19 .. We are home ..

I head for work using the tomTom and an Android app called “Waze” on my Samsung phone .. going to be fun testing against the TomTom.

Well Waze did the business this morning .. although it doesn't advise of faster routes like the TomTom does .. however, my announcement that my TomTom was getting traffic info again yesterday after my snotty email to TomTom support was short lived .. no info at all on hours drive this morning.

19.15 .. rather naughtily .. went out to The East & Orient in Chobham for a meal with my Karen, Monday is Ladies Night .. £14.95 a head instead of the usual £16.95 for boys .. I'm on call .. ho hum, only 5 minutes away and my phone didn't ring or get a single text .. phew .. :-)

Food was lovely as usual .. bang goes last weeks weight loss.

Payback time .. not in a good place this morning, rather unwell overnight, face started to swell ( well noticed it was ) at 06.00 .. have taken a 4mg Chlorphenamine for the allergic reaction, aching all over. Work aware I'm going to be late. The Chlorphenamine hasn't had the usual effect, my supply is over 3 years old, I wonder if they suffer from ageing, call to Pharmacist when they are open.

On my Facebook profile ..

19.12 .. Have felt really poo all day following the allergic reaction that happened over night. Boots chemist and Doctor between them wound me up over the viability of the tablet I took earlier .. seems I'm going to have to buy my own pre trip to Brunei on Monday.

The good news was a letter in the post from Surrey Police .. I've past the security checks so now officially the IAG transgender representative member. However .. got another form to fill in just for fun.
