I went to a funeral last week. I wanted to post a blog about it because I have things to say – but I have been reflecting on how and what to say without perhaps drawing a pack of cards down on my head from Sparkers making the huge efforts of mod... Read more

I am very glad the second anniversary of my middle grandson's birth is over. It always brings back sad memories of course - well the memories never go away but it gets easier as time passes. He is buried in a very beautiful sustainability sit... Read more

Well - the soup has worked it's magic and I am back on track. I also caught a Spark blog from LOSEBUDDHABELLY regarding the set-up of a new team - The Slowest Loser. I feel it's for me at the moment. I need to stop trying too hard - or ind... Read more

I'm really happy I did this soup fortnight - its a new routine and a much needed diversion from planning three meals a day. I love having a pot of soup to dip into when I'm hungry. When I took up the suggestion from a Spark friend I really didn... Read more

I'm happy to be able to type that title - I have been so close to giving up that I thought my next blog would be a farewell to those I have come to care about here. I have been having a bad time with myself. I have been disconnected and ha... Read more

Thursday, April 29, 2010      2 comments

Worse places to be stuck than Prague of course but hard to enjoy the extra week with little info and the need to be constantly in touch with/visiting - airline – airport -or agent. So-o many people having such hard times with the urgent need to... Read more

I am just so happy to be feeling better - have been tested for various things - some on the scary side but so far all results are negative. Phew! I am lucky to have a friend who is a Feldenkrais practitioner who has been working on my muscles ... Read more

I am so-o happy to be back in my own home this week and in charge of my own habits - even if things go awry I know who to blame! So today I've walked a lot, exercised to Coach Nicole's DVD which is my current favourite and doubly so that I am ha... Read more
