Beef stew FTW!

A recipe handed down from my mums mum and eaten at least once a month ever since.

You don't need an excuse to make and eat this delicious masterpiece, but if you have a poorly member of the household or Neighboor (like we do) then this a perfect pick me up. Lee Martin

A favorite present

Just sat at the table with my Son playing with his 'Mighty Beanz' collection. They are so cool. I love the slippery little suckers.

And before you know it....

So the Festivities are all over. Christmas has come and gone once more and we are left with mountains of wrapping, recycling, poorly tummies & the wrath of spoilt kids!

My boy loves his educational laptop. I am as guilty as the next parent in spoiling my Son. I do however wish I hadn't started it.

A night before xmas: #moments

I am sat in the front room arranging the tree and the presents ready for the morning and I can hear my wife reading "it was a night before Christmas" to my Son who is still awake. I am so thankful for my family, these moments make my heart sing. Merry Christmas. Lee Martin

The later chapter

Just a quick update. I went back to the doctors today and was told what I already knew- your leg has a nasty infection!

This is why I have been unable to walk properly for days!!

Will update later.

Did you catch what he whispered to Matt on Xfactor?

Did anyone else notice what a member of the boy band whispered to the Xfactor winner at the end of the show yesterday?
If you have it recorded, take a look. It's just after Dermot says "let's hear it one last time for Matt"....

Brilliant. Lol. Lee Martin

#xfactor Is this all there is?

I am sat here resting my leg and the X-Factor is on the TV in the background, a thought crossed my mind - Before reality TV what did the majority do with their time?

Seriously, I look on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks and there full of xfactor updates and comments. Are we now conditioned to become zombies of reality TV? To look forward to the Saturday night Showing of our favourite potential stars?
The pull of the shiny sets and bright teeth is just too much for us to bear!

Is it really real or even close?

So, what would you be doing without reality TV?

Dressing change... Not or faint hearted. Scratch the screen to activate smell-o-vision!!!

I've been changing my dressing as much as required since my last visit to A&E when it wouldn't stop bleeding. The smell from the wound is stomach churning but although that is a usual sign of infection any other symptoms are not present - as you can see - Scratch the screen to activate smell-o-vision!!!

Where the hell are you going?

Do you ever get a bit fed up? Start feeling like your lost and have no idea where your heading?

I used to feel like that an awful lot, several times a week. Since I have a new outlook on life it's not affected me in the slightest. I always put it down to my health why I was so fed up and lethargic, this latest episode has confirmed that for me. When I arrived at this superbowl today I was feeling ok, then a staff member tripped over my bad leg! Oh C**P! That hurt..... It is hard work planning to get out at the minute and when things like that happen it can bring you down....

For most people, I presume it's as easy as making up your minds to do something and making it happen! Since I was 16, nearly everything I have planned has fallen over. This was 90% down to my health and 10% down to my attitude! I had become conditioned to fail, to start something knowing I could never complete it. EVER! Right or wrong (I now know it was so wrong!) that is how it has been for me, looking back though I realise now although I had it tougher than my mates - some of them going onto to do great things with their lives - I should of realised that I had it in me to do great things.

I will never again be that negative individual who blames everything else for his own failings and mistakes. I am responsible for my own future, that I am comfortable with. I use to want so much and achieve nothing, now I want for so little hut achieve so much. I like that balance. I was asked recently if my disability affected my ability to work and if so how? - it will always affect me, but I will still strive to get out of bed everyday to complete a days work. There are still times when i wake at stupid o'clock to take enough pain killers to be able to get out of bed to get into work! For too long I was a hostage to my disability, as if that was who I was. It's a strange feeling to suddenly realise the potential your capable of was always there, smothered in self pity and twenty one stone of fat! I was a person who believed I was owed something in life, what an idiot! My Dad was so right when he said to me "you get nothing for free Lee, you have to work for your life to feel great!" - at the time he said that, I think I was about 19 years old I thought yeah right, I have a better way! Youth is wasted on the young...........

I have no major dreams of becoming rich and living in lush surroundings, but what I do have is the ability to get there if that was what I wanted. It's not, not anymore anyway. These days, my dreams are more grounded, to be able to have consistent health, a healthy family and above all another child to complete my beautiful family.. That is surely all that matters....

Recovery

So at the beginning of this month I had my 7th operation. This one, like many before it was to remove metalwork from the bones in my leg.

It all went very well (apparently) and the surgeon removed a little more than original planned.

Post operation, the recovery has been slower than I had hoped, with problems with the wound and bruising.

Today, I am hopeful of a trouble free weekend to allow me to return to work on Monday. I am also itching to get my camera back in my hand!!
Have a great weekend.

If it says "DISABLED" then don't park there!!!!

I am sure I have posted about this before. But I am really frustrated so tough!

I had to go to my doctors yesterday to get more dressings for my wound, easy enough really.....

WHY do people always seem to think that it's ok to park in a disabled bay when they are NOT disabled! It really is a pet hate of mine. So, I had to park across the other side of the car park! And walk to the doctors. By the time I got there the tears were running down my face because of the pain! It was horrible. I tapped on the window of the young lad who was trying to ignore the fact that I even existed and asked him why he thought it was ok to park there. He gave the standard response of "I was only gonna be a minute mate, I ain't doing no arm!" I tried my best to educate the young man to the "harm" he could be causing a disabled driver but I am sure he was paying more attention to the rave music coming from the stereo...

The moral to this story is this. Please think twice before parking in a disabled bay. In fact DO NOT DO IT! Its incredibly selfish and has implications far beyond your understanding!!!
