Blimey, it’s February 2013 already!

I’ve not been very good at updating my blog recently, life just seems to be getting in the way.

The reasons are that work has been very busy, which is good and bad at the same time. We’re also looking at moving house, so there’s been a lot more DIY in my life recently.

On the exercise front, I’ve managed to pickup another injury, this time a Direct Inguinal Hernia for which I’m awaiting surgery. It looks like a reoccurance of a childhood injury, but the main irony is that despite all the heavy lifting I’ve done in the last 5 years, I think I got it doing a Yoga stretchg: specifically the Upward Dog!

And on a technical note, I managed to break my Dell Inspiron laptop last night. The bios update process failed and has left the laptop in a completely unbootable state. It won’t boot from DVD, USB stick or from the network. Dell premium telephone support can’t fix it. Nor can the local computer repair shop I’ve just heard from. Let’s home Dell’s “Next Business Day Onsite Support” really is next business day…

    I had this surgery almost 4 months ago (both sides – L & R). First 2 wks after I could not get into or out of a chair or bed without significant pain from very sore abdominals. Also they say to walk a lot. I did. Caused a lot of iliopsoas pain. Thru internet I found out that they anchor the mesh to the bone just below those muscles. Eventually things adjusted and improved, but it took longer than I had been led to believe.
