Disconnected?

Have been away from home – and this site – on and off all summer. There were things I just had to do and in the way that life has – they just kept piling up. Of course I could have said ‘no’ to some of them – ‘NO’ that little word that I... Read more

AAAAAAgh!! I think . . .

One of my resolutions/streaks here was to get off my couch. Well I haven't had time to look at it lately - never mind sit on it. Work on my new kitchen took up a lot of time and energy and although there is still work I need to do - tiling... Read more

Escaping to the Common

Sunday, July 25, 2010      4 comments

It was raining when I got up this morning – ‘Pity’ I thought. I’ve been so busy in my little house that I haven’t had time to enjoy the glorious countryside here and with about an hour’s work left to do I had planned to walk afterwards. I decid... Read more

The Long Haul

Monday, July 12, 2010      2 comments

Well – the kitchen is out and the resultant mess cleared up. I had forgotten what hard work it all is and how long it all takes – clear all the cupboards and find places to put everything. My one tiny spare room is stuffed with stuff. Set up s... Read more

Taking advice

In my Inbox this morning along with Personal messages and of course Spark messages was an email from the Rosemary Conley website to which I subscribe. Normally I don’t find these emails more than passingly helpful but this morning’s message gav... Read more

A day in the sun

I spent today on the beach with some friends - an ex-ballerina who now teaches Pilates and a Feldenkrais practitioner. I have allowed myself to become massively unfit and I really want to change that as far as possible and become stronger and r... Read more

OOPS!! Double post!!

My light grey line

Thursday, June 24, 2010      3 comments

Since joining the 10 minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge I have felt really encouraged to exercise - and perversely more than 10 minutes per day. My Mother used to tell me that I was just contrary (well, my middle name is Mary and the nurser... Read more

Drawing the line - but where?

Sunday, June 20, 2010      4 comments

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

YAY!!!!

I feel weirdly (sorry MP had to steal your adjective!) pleased with myself today. Loadsa fun at the weekend and yet still on track! In a way I have lowered my sights from the time when I originally joined SPARK – but in another way I have rai... Read more

Back on track - again!!

Thanks to everyone's encouragement and advice I have climbed back on the the wagon and lost a pound this week thro more careful eating and regular - tho 'small' exercise. Nothing huge - but enough to make me feel better about myself. I hav... Read more

A good day

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

End of second week of Soups

Sunday, May 23, 2010      2 comments

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

Halfway through my soup fortnight

Saturday, May 15, 2010      7 comments

I could ask if there’s something magical about soup (my Grandmother would say so!) but I have realized that a pot of nourishing goodies on my stove offers me the chance to keep my sugar levels stabilized with the minimum of difficulty. I have al... Read more
