Still alive

Been away in Ireland and then unable to face being on the computer long enough to update (a problem I'm having more and more these days). It's like I have a strictly limited amount of time I can be online and then I have to stop. Sometimes it's only an hour or so a day. This means I can read and answer email or post here, not both. It's not my eyes, those have been tested again and again. Maybe I've got more sensitive to electromagnetic fields. I plan to get a smartphone so that it will be easier to just type something quickly while I'm waiting in shops or something. Hell, I might even go on Twitter. :P

I have new shoes. I had worn though the old ones. The new ones are notable in that they are neutral shoes. I used to be a serious overpronator, and even after losing a bunch of weight I needed the support. No longer, it seems. I guess all the walking is paying off. I just have to check with the podiatrist and make sure I don't still need orthotics for something else - but I wore the new neutral shoes for about 8 km today and my feet felt fine after a little initial soreness.

I wonder how much of my recent malaise could be traced to bad footwear? My father always said that if your feet hurt, everything hurts. My feet hadn't been hurting - but my hips, knees, and lower back were distinctly unhappy. We'll see if I can walk tomorrow.

Had a lovely lunch with dave_devereux, whom I hadn't seen in ages. It was great to be able to catch up with him. We decided we need to meet up more regularly. We had surprisingly good Mexican food at a place down by St Nicholas Market; I was gratified that my recommendation didn't automatically destroy the place (as has happened before - I tell someone a place is good, they go there, and they get crap food and service).

Still need to get the business website up and running. There's a skeleton there at present, in need of fleshing out - but I keep running into the online time limit. I expect I'll figure it out sooner or later.
