Saturday, December 06, 2014      4 comments

It’s a week since I got back from my trip to Malta and between being very busy and the time it has taken to sort out my photos I’ve only just got to a blog. I arrived with the intention of finding a way to fit in some exercise – not always eas... Read more

Duty done - with little or no damage

Monday, November 10, 2014      7 comments

A rather mixed time working away over the last few days, but there were lots of positives. One positive was that my colleagues and I were so busy that we hardly had any time to eat together so I was in charge of my own regime. A dear Sparkfrie... Read more

I thought I had successfully cleared the decks this month for a big push towards being at the top of my healthy BMI by the 24th. Space for good food choices and plenty of exercise lay before me. However, I have been asked to stand in, at the las... Read more

Glorious Autumn Afternoon

Sunday, November 02, 2014      8 comments

Yesterday was possibly the last day of an extremely beautiful and warm Autumn – unusually good weather for the UK in fact. So I took advantage of it and a friend and I went off to a local estate, famous for its collection of trees and mentioned ... Read more

‘But exercise is another story. I simply fell in love with it.’ I read this in a blog yesterday – forgive me but I can’t remember whose blog it was – I was just surfing the site. It stayed with me all day yesterday because I am the opposit... Read more

Such a lovely start to the day

Greatest of walks this morning. There are a lot of grumpy people around at the moment because most of us in the UK hate the change of the clocks going back – an extra hour in bed for one night but then we go through the whole business of it gett... Read more

Plodding on

Monday, October 27, 2014      3 comments

So today is weigh-in day. I only get on the scales every four weeks – saves me getting obsessive and I try not to think about the numbers in between times. I couldn’t however fail to notice that my clothes are looser – always a pleasure. So – on... Read more

A treat to come

I am SO glad to have finished the preparations for letting my little house in the country. It was harder work than I ever imagined – clearing everything personal out of it and making sure everything was as clean and gleaming as it could be. The ... Read more

Inevitable, I guess - despite my brave words yesterday I was hovering round the top end of my calorie limit yesterday - pretty certainly went over slightly in fact - as good friends here knew I probably would. NOT what I intended but the planned... Read more

Trying for regularity

Monday, September 29, 2014      7 comments

I’m surprised how long it is since I weighed myself but I’ve been very busy and in any case wanted to stop weighing assiduously every week because I’m not willing to keep worrying about the results – was sending me mad. I have, however, been tr... Read more

Thanks to a dear Sparkfriend

Preamble to this is: - I’ve been horribly busy getting my little house in the country ready for letting – needs must and all that. Blush to say that – busy as I’ve been - I managed to forget it was my youngest grandson’s 5th birthday yesterda... Read more

Another unusual storm - for us here in the UK

Monday, July 28, 2014      5 comments

The photo below, sent to me by a friend just now, is of one of our local train stations after a very fierce early morning storm - two hours of massive thunder and lightening with torrential rain and huge hail stones that settled like snow. The s... Read more
