Manho the Daddy’s blog for July

Manho the Daddy July or maybe August’s blog….

So me avid readers, another Covid fun packed month has past and hopefully this month there will be a little more context in this month’s blog than last month’s as it was commented it was rather, erm, shall we say short

So in the month of July what oh what has been happening in Manho’s world, working would be at the front of everything just a carrying on regardless in that area of my life.

Now it was Masters birthday this month and his Piggy had a wish list from Amazon sent to her for what he would like, so at the beginning of the month we ordered a few items he wanted from his list. The day after his 111th birthday we went to see him and my Little Minxs with his presents and Piggy did him a sweetie box as well, which he very much appreciated. Master cooked us burgers and sausages which were amazing, we socially kept our distance when we were there but it was really nice to see our other family and give Master his presents and just spend time with them both.

Now me and Piggy had a couple of holidays booked this month the first of which was with Master and Little Minxs, we were to be going to Pevours farm which is a naturist farm down in Essex, that was cancelled due to the pending doom and gloom of this bloody woohoo flu and the second week was away was with Piggy’s Mum and Dad down in the west country somewhere, in a Haven campsite and that was cancelled due to Dad still self-isolating, so the first week we cancelled the holidays at work and will reuse them later within the year, the second week we took off and booked a couple of days away at the beginning of the week to a AirB&B, it was a shared property with the owners and basically you had one part of the house and the kitchen was shared use, really nice house, had a hot tub so the child was happy, nice location, but would I do this AirB&B again, in one word Nope, hard to relax and be yourself when the owners of the property live in the same house. Don’t get me wrong they were really nice, however, I personally could not relax fully and fully enjoy myself. Piggy on the other hand enjoyed herself and would do it again. Now at the end of the week I had arranged with a friend of mine to go away for a couple of nights tenting with the motorbikes, so he arranged to look at a couple of campsites in the Lake District and bugger me, we couldn’t get a pitch due to being fully booked until the end of August so that buggered up that plan, ( Little Minxs explained if you have bathroom facilities of your own, you could go to campsites, but tents/caravans with no toilet or washing up facilities were not allowed as all shared toilet blocks/sinks were closed. ) So I then thought I would go out on a limb and ask Little Minxs if we could come down and spend the afternoon with both of them properly and not just a couple of hours like on Masters birthday, so Little Minxs spoke with Master who had to check if he had any plans and hadn’t, due to the weather that was supposed to be raining all weekend. So he said we could come and see them, so me and Piggy stopped off a the sweetie shop near us and bought both Master and Little Minxs some sweeties, Master likes his sherbet, so we picked him a few tubs of sherbet and Little Minxs wanted some aniseed twists and some cinder toffee, which I got. So with the sweeties bought, we made our way to theirs and got there just after 2pm. 

Now on the visit it was a little different, although distancing was in place still, it was nice to be able to sit on the couch with Little Minxs and be a little closer to her. We had a little, just a little bit of hand touching, now I know Little Minxs has made comment on Mr Johnson  and him publicly announcing that people who are in a polyamorous or BDSM relationship can go back to normal, although I am sure I have read that he said everything should be back to some sort of normality by Christmas, although he did not say which year, however as I have said to Little Minxs and Piggy, we would never ever risk either Master, Little Minxs or their sons health by coming seeing them if we did not feel so good or had any inclination that we may have this bloody Covid-19 symptoms and it is pretty much a common sense approach with regards this as this is not going away any time soon.

We stayed at Masters and Little Minxs house all afternoon and watched a film,  which was crap if I’m honest, although Master enjoyed it as it had Tommy Lee Jones in it and he has not done a bad film, bar this one, it was rubbish, we had dinner, a  rather nice Chinese, woohoo flu not included and all in all had a really good afternoon. 

Now I am writing my blog on a Sunday just before I go back into work tomorrow and just after me having a nice 3.3 mile walk. Walking? I hear you ask! In truth I need to lose some weight, I weighed myself a couple of weeks ago and was shocked to see my weight, 15st, I was horrified as this was the heaviest I have ever been and I am not happy with myself at all, I need to do something about it quickly, so both me and Piggy had been speaking over a few days and have seen challenges you can do from the interweb, some small challenges, so there is one which is the channel crossing, in which it is twenty one mile distance and this could be done by either walking, running, swimming or cycling and I logged into their app, through a third party app, so I decided to try it out today though map my walk and take the dog with me, so it took me one hour twenty minutes I think to do 3.3 miles which was a nice pleasant walk, although I needed a pee so I had to take a slight detour and wee in some bushes.

So I got back home after the walk and realised the trainers I had found in the wardrobe where not suitable for walking at all, so I am going to need to invest in some new trainers. Now the other reason I tried this, is I have been having a lot of issues with my left big toe, where is swells up really bad and becomes unbearably painful, this is down to gout and through my ignorance I hadn’t taken my medication to prevent an attack for years and just over a month ago, I had a bad attack, so called the doctors to restart my medication, I then had to go for a blood test to make sure everything was ok and knew that my uric levels would be high but with the medication this should reduce within a couple of weeks. Now a month later I am still having a lot of trouble with the toe to which I called the doctors again and explained the issues I was having and he suggested for me to have an X ray, as the medication I am taking should be in my system and be working, so there could be a underlying issue with that joint, when the results come through, I will let you know and I will keep you updated with the progression of the weight loss and walking I am going to undertake.

Now one last thing and this is to my beautiful Little Minxs, and it is simply Daddy is really sorry for upsetting you earlier this month with calling you ginger, I know you don’t like it and even when Daddy is teasing you, I had never intentionally meant to upset you and make you angry and I promise I will never ever call you or anyone that again I promise,  and I Love you loads……I am sorry x.x.x.x.x

Until next month reader……Bye bye.

Monthly blog from Manho the Daddy.

June’s blog from Manho the Daddy….

Well peeps another month has passed us by and to be honest not much has happened, old Boris Johnson has lifted the old lock down a little, so in turn the good old public took the piss and in the few days of nice weather, they went in mass to the seaside causing many disruptions. 

The bike was serviced, however the mechanic said the brake and clutch fluid needed to be replaced, as this was not part of my service, I will have to rebook it in for July at some point. 

So the month has been rather boring with not much to say as I’ve been working and it seems now some of the lock down has been lifted and even more is to be lifted in July, we finally have a planned visit to see Little Minxs and Master at the beginning of July. Unfortunately it will be a social distance visit but nonetheless a visit any way. 

So looking forward to that, and it’s also Masters 111th birthday, so maybe there will be a chance to celebrate that with maybe a social distance visit as well.

So at the start of July, more things are being lifted, such as pubs and restaurants, so we shall see, as and when the bloody lock down is completely over or reintroduced…

A short blog this month peeps as there has been nothing of real interest to talk about.

Oooo just reminded myself on something, so me being shall we say short for my weight should of been taking medication for my gout and cholesterol, but ignorantly haven’t for at least a year, so anyhow about two weeks ago I had a massive gout attack and God it was bloody painful, the worst one ever. So rang my GP and requested a repeat prescription for my meds, called back a day later to see if they were ready and was advised I needed to speak with the Doctor, so I had a phone call later that day and he pretty much said I was broke and had to go for a full blood test. However he did prescribe my medication and have been taking them religiously, I promised both Piggy and Little Minxs that I would take my meds, as I did not want another bout of the gout, as this time it was awful….

Any how that’s pretty much me done for the month so until next month bye bye …..

April’s blog from Daddy.

Manho belated blog for April…

Well again, I am a little late with April’s blog, can’t really blame the woohoo flu, as to be honest I have had the time to write it, however, due to the shite in what is happening in the world at this moment in time, I just couldn’t think of anything to write about. 

So Little Minx’s had reminded me at the beginning of May, regarding my blog and I had explained that I could not think of anything to write, as we have been on lockdown for all of April and I’ve pretty much done nothing, bar go into work, as I and Piggy are classed as key workers and unfortunately our jobs cannot be done from home. Now again Little Minx’s had passed comment this morning in front of Master, asking if I had done my blog. Knowing full well that I hadn’t, so Master piped up saying no Blogs from Manho or Piggy and subsequently set us both a punishment for lateness of blogs and we have to pick each other’s punishment, so that’s me screwed as Piggy can be quite evils.

So I am here, now writing a brief blog on a Friday morning on the 8th May at 0900 in the kitchen, listening to music and pondering on what to put, the only interesting thing I did in April was buy a new Motorcycle, much to the disgust of Little Minx’s, as she has not wanted me to obtain another motorcycle. However, the biker in me was pinning for a new motorcycle and I was trolling the old inter web and had seen a few in which they would deliver the bike to my door, now the issue is not being able to see the motorcycle and be able to test ride it as well, so pretty much sold as seen with potentially a lot of underlying issues, which is not what I wanted at all, so back onto the inter web and just had a look see at a bike shop which was two minutes from where I lived, just to see what he had in stock and noticed he had a very nice Honda VTR1000. Now I really like these bikes, a sporty seating position but not as aggressive. Little Minx’s was worried, as I have issues with my fingers and wrist when riding the last bike, so I was looking for a bike which would be comfortable to ride long distances with, so I rang the shop up as they were still doing MOT and servicing and they said if I went down they would bring it out and let me look. So I went down and as they had said, it was out of the front, so I had a look, started her up and sat on her and oooo I like this I thought. Now it was my mission to convince Piggy as she wanted me to get a cruiser style bike as she really enjoys riding on the back of that style of bike but I did really like this bike, so I rang Piggy up, who was at work and she said she wanted to see it first. So I said ok, picked Piggy up from work drove to the shop and when she saw the bike I could tell she was not impressed in any shape or form, ”It’s no different from the other bike,” she said, “Yes it is, it’s bigger for a start and comfortable to sit on,” I told her. She was not impressed at all and pretty much said do what you want. So this man in me put the deposit down on it and said I would collect the bike on Friday, in 2 days’ time. We got home and Piggy was in a slight bad mood, saying she would not get on the back of the bike as she did not like riding on that style of bikes. Later in the evening she had calmed down and was talking more and I know for her it wasn’t her cup of tea, however I’m riding the bike and felt very comfortable on it and riding it is brilliant, just snuggled into it and away we go and absolutely no issues with hands, or wrist at all…bonus.

Now I need to apologise to Master for this late blog and promise Mays blog will be sent without any reminders, promise…
