The long weekend here in the UK (thanks to the Royal Wedding ) brought a Festival for Foodies to Brighton sea front. Everyone had a great time in the sunshine sampling good organic food – watching cookery demos and – in my case – spending time ... Read more

Coming out of hiding
Sunday, April 17, 2011      12 comments

Yup - I've been in hiding from everything and everybody. Family stuff meant I had already put back some of the pounds I lost here on Spark and then I went away working in Spain where I added yet more pounds during a very stressful trip. ... Read more

Well – I’ve dragged my partner kicking and screaming into a more confident state of mind. His extreme worry over his angina diagnosis was due to winter blues, as far as I can see, which he suffers from really badly, exaggerating his fears about... Read more

I haven’t blogged for a while and don’t see that changing soon. My partner is having a hard time and I am much pre-occupied with him. He’s been diagnosed with angina – not serious in itself of course – but he’s taken it badly because he’s just... Read more

I didn’t feel great yesterday – a migraine - I don’t get them nearly as badly as some but it interfered with a hard-won resolution to exercise not only MORE but more thoroughly – to put more effort into my activities. I was discouraged, cross an... Read more
A better attitude and 3 more pounds gone
Saturday, January 15, 2011      11 comments

A loss of 3 pounds has made me very happy – over the commitment of ˝ pound per week that I made to the Slowest Loser Team which taught me a very valuable lesson about the merits of slow weightloss - thus avoiding my usual burn-out. This has to... Read more

I have made such slow progress here – I am not consistent by nature – blown by the wind in directions that I shouldn’t really go, in so many respects and therefore not getting results I wish for. I am often ashamed not to do better – here on Sp... Read more

Christmas - happy after all
Friday, December 24, 2010      6 comments

Never thought I'd be as free to enjoy a happy Christmas time in my own home this year but my DIL - with true Scottish grit - has pulled herself back from the edge of a nervous breakdown and is determined that she will be the one who makes a good... Read more
Well . . .

. . . I wasn't expecting to be back home before Christmas but DIL seems to be on the mend and in any case I have to take my partner to the hospital for a day of testing his heart function. My son is 'working from home' until after Christmas thou... Read more

I feel I've been neglecting most of my Spark friends recently and I can't see that changing before next year. I have too much to do - and too many family problems - to give much time here at the moment. I regret that and I hope everyone will ... Read more

It’s been extremely pretty here in Brighton (UK) by the sea in the snow. It is lethally icy on pavements and roads but it looks beautiful. ... Read more

I've had a great succession of weekends with my younger son, his wife and their sons celebrating both their birthdays - 9 days apart. This weekend the parents have had a great time out and about giving each other small treats and personal time ... Read more
