This morning I was woken up by a firework going off around 8am. I wasn’t happy, and I’ve been a bit grumpy all day.
Yesterday I read an ebook, which was good. Independent Study by Joelle Charbonneau, which is the second book in The Testing trilogy. I enjoyed it, though it wasn’t quite as good as the first book. It took me all day, but I’m freshly happy to have managed it at all.
I’m still waiting for the payback from the hospital appointment. If I’m still about the same tomorrow, I think I’ll have gotten away with it, which would be awesome. Unfortunately waking up after not enough sleep and this stupid cold meant I’ve not been able to go on my computer today (I wasn’t well enough the few days before my appointment either). I need to do a food shop so I hope I can get on it soon as it’s much easier on there than my tablet.
Johan got an iPhone 6 and so gave me his Sony Xperia Z1 as I wanted a 4G phone for unlimited tethering (that contract isn’t available anymore so I didn’t want to change it to get a new phone). I like it and I can manage non-typing things on it pretty well. Typing is hard but doable as it has a larger screen than my old iPhone 4S (which I have to Johan for his other sim so he’s now using Apple products most of the time). I do like how fast the Z1 is compared to my Nexus 10, but that might be because I’m not running tons of junk on it yet 😛
The battery life of my Nexus 10 is noticeably deteriorating, and even with the magnetic charger it goes down as I’m using it (it used to go up), and I almost always have it on the lowest brightness setting. Once Christmas is over I might have to look into a new tablet, but I’m not sure what one I’ll get yet. I was thinking about getting an iPad as some of the apps are better, but I’m pretty invested in Android at this point and I like being able to customise it. The Nexus 9 is a possibility, but I’m not sure if losing the inch of screen size will make it harder to use (as a 7 inch was too small). I’ll have to see what’s available after Christmas.
Today I’ve not done much really. Talked a bit to Johan, then to Esther (friend/flatmate) when Johan went to Nando’s. That was really nice, and I’m glad I was able to do so. I had a wrap for breakfast (Johan bought it for me in Tesco yesterday) and risotto for tea, and my digestive system has hated me for both. They were both nommy though and all food triggers my digestive system so I might as well eat what I like. I’m very grateful for cyclizine even if it does sedate me 😛
I was wanting to write something for Autistics Speaking Day today (even though it was yesterday) but that requires more brainpower than this type of brain dump post so I’ll have to skip it this year. I’m hoping to be able to read the other blog posts written for it soon.
If all goes well I’ll have a nice long sleep tonight and I’ll be less of a grumpy grumpypants tomorrow 🙂
