I’m terribly short of time today but just have to post something to say how amazed I am at my current efforts. For some time I’ve been processing all the changes I’ve been through and taking inspiration from other Sparkers principally to set up ... Read more

Wednesday, June 06, 2012      3 comments

Well – the Jubilee fun was very hard work and quite wet here in Brighton. There were lots of street parties in the residential roads and other events in the streets. I took any interested students around the town. Most of them were happy... Read more

So – here we all are at the beginning of a new month. I wish you all a happy and successful June. This is the month when I intend to make some measured and serious progress here. I've said that before many times in different ways and faile... Read more
Good days
Monday, May 28, 2012      4 comments

So – the first weekend of my renewed efforts. A good few days of food and exercise and I spent a happy weekend on the beach setting up BBQs with my students (I find it really easy to enjoy barbecued fish or meat and salads without overdoing it)... Read more
Creeping back - rather shamefaced
Friday, May 25, 2012      4 comments

I’ve been absent for a lot longer than I intended although I have been logging in and tracking as much as I could – not that that saved me from regaining some of my hard lost pounds and I knew that I either had to start again or give up altogeth... Read more

Don't worry - be happy

I haven't been practising that much lately! I seem to have been away from Spark for an age and I’m creeping back with some trepidation. I’ve got a lot of stuff going on in my personal life and I’m not really sure if I can sustain my return ... Read more
My New Year starts here
Tuesday, January 10, 2012      11 comments

As it turned out I had a bit of a bad time over the Christmas and New Year holidays. My partner and I both had a dose of flu that neither of us could throw off. I’ve come off best although I am tired all the time STILL – just seems to go on an... Read more
Christmas time away
Saturday, December 24, 2011      4 comments

I'm off to my little house in the country for a few days to have a cosy and village-y Christmas time where everybody smiles and says 'hallo' and 'Happy Christmas' as they pass. I like that friendly attitude and am really looking forward to a go... Read more
NOT the way to prepare for Christmas!
Wednesday, December 21, 2011      6 comments

I'm passing this on because it worked for me today. A Doctor on TV said we all need to have inner peace at Christmas and to do that we should always finish things we start so we could get through the preparations in a calm and orderly fashio... Read more

Jumped on the scales this morning for the weekly weigh in. Nothing lost - and I'd been working hard at it all - but I was pretty indulgent in London at the weekend ... Read more
London - Christmas windows
Monday, December 19, 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??!!
Tuesday, December 13, 2011      4 comments

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

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
