NOT the way to prepare for Christmas!

Wednesday, December 21, 2011      6 comments

I used to live on the edge of London and visited it very regularly. Now I am further away and go less often traffic and parking difficulties generally boring stuff,but discourages me from making the effort. However, I like to get there for ... Read more

How close to the train track can you actually work??!!

This was sent to me by a friend working in Beijing who has huge admiration for the 'can do' attitude of the Chinese regardless of consequences. From my time working in Hong Kong I also know that they do indeed do things that to us here seem impo... Read more

More pictures from my village

Monday, December 12, 2011      6 comments

I really love the little village where my cottage is and I am always delighted to find the time to spend here. This is my pre-Christmas visit and so different from last year which was extremely cold and very very wet. Today there is bright, wa... Read more

A wedding - finally!!

Tuesday, December 06, 2011      10 comments

My 'non'-daughter-in-law was determined to be what she called a 'real life' daughter-in-law and wife by the time she was forty. They've been together for nearly 20 years and have two children and so much history behind them. So - last minute as... Read more

Another day - another mood on 'my' common

Friday, November 18, 2011      8 comments

Today is grey and it was drizzling earlier but in my new frame of mind Im not letting the weather stop me. So boots and a wax jacket and off I went. There was mist over the hills and no one around probably because I was later than I inten... Read more

Wednesday, November 16, 2011      3 comments

This morning I went out really early to walk on the common outside my front gate. I was going out for the day with my partner and wanted to get the walking done. Good thing I did it early because it started pouring with rain later in the mornin... Read more

Focus

Sunday, November 13, 2011      4 comments

I'be been so busy this weekend that I lost it - AGAIN! Focus, that is. This happens so easily - something in my head says 'OK there's an excuse now so I don't need to think about cardio.' I do know that's rubbish and I also know that if I don't... Read more

Thursday, November 10, 2011      4 comments

. . hoping it'll really become a daily habit and not an intermittent habit as it has been. Today I went - again - to the sea at the bottom of my square - but very early when both life and Nature are very different. All the sailing boats (most... Read more

Walking by the sea

Wednesday, November 09, 2011      1 comments

I went walking by the sea at the bottom of my road today. It was not intended - I meant to walk on the Downs behind Brighton but for various reasons it wasn't to be. So - determined to get in my 60 minute walk somewhere I enjoy, I just too... Read more

In my quest to gee myself up into some worthwhile cardio Im starting to do some long walks in beautiful places that I enjoy not hard here in Sussex in the UK. Ive been trying to remember why I stopped doing that but there is no why real... Read more

Good days

Thursday, November 03, 2011      6 comments

I am very happy to look back on a good week so far. I have woken early, got out of bed immediately and done a 15 minute warm up on the exercise bike a selection of strength exercises which a Spark friend sent me to help the sciatica that is cu... Read more
