General Website Update October 2015

This is a short update to my blog, this is more of a personal update aswell. For regular readers of this blog, you may have noticed I haven’t really posted that much within the last year. This has been due to several factors over the past year. The last year to be honest hasn’t been the best year for me, first I am writing this on the first years anniversary of my father’s death, now I’m a person that doesn’t really show emotions, but this has affected me in ways I couldn’t have imagined.

Also I have had some health problems, I have suffered from tennis elbow over the past two and half years, which seems to have developed further. I have had two steroid injections direct into the tendon, but this only helps for about two months then the pain comes back, this doesn’t just effect my elbow it does affect my hands there has been times were I cannot even move my arm, and also now started to really effect my hand which maybe unrelated o the tennis elbow, which means I loose grip and does mean that I drop things, also have trouble using my hand and arm, which unfortunately has really affected my work also. But this problem with my hand does affect me even using the computer and even typing. I am on strong pain killers all the time, these have varied over the last few years, but unfortunately the side effects of these tablets do make me really tired.

Unfortunately due to me not being able to do certain things because of the pain that I can be in it does cause me to get a bit down and unfortunately in the past I have suffered with depression and this can become worse as I get frustrated with myself that sometimes I can’t do the simplest of tasks. Which does mean trying to get articles wrote to get online really in myself just can’t be bothered, this is not fair to the readers of this blog. Depression is one subject I will be covering in a further article, as people with depression don’t really talk about it and some people don’t really understand about the subject fully.

Also with work commitments I haven’t had time to write articles or even I had started to write articles that are nearly finished but not finished them and forgot about them which mean they don’t get posted. Or sometimes the article is fully wrote, but not edited the photos that should accompany the post, which some of these were about events so really too late to post the information.

So from now on to make me get on with writing for this site, which should be fun for me to write and hasn’t been for a while, I will now be making sure that for the moment I will write at least one article to post per week. These articles maybe different from the normal things that I write about, subjects could cover all am manner of subjects from politics, current affairs, craft ideas, my views on the latest tech to just really anything that I have a interest in.

I also want to put a bit more effort into adding photos to the section that I started a few years ago following the adventure of Doctor Who in miniature at first this was using the character building Lego style Dr Who figure, Then when Peter Capaldi took over as the role of the doctor I got a 3.75” action figure to use as replacement for the photos. When I started this section I did enjoy getting the different shots of the figure in locations we visited and set pieces that I set up, but the same with this over the time I had lost interest in this, Which again need to change.
