Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Emergency blog - snow joke!

Saturday, January 19, 2013      110 comments

London is reeling under at least three inches of snow. Your intrepid reporter was at Sainsbury's yesterday night in the last flurry, stocking up on non-perishable foods and toastable bread in case she was unable to open the door this morning. So... Read more

I've been meaning to post this one for a while, ever since I put up 'Why don't people blog more?' http://www.sparkpeople.com/myp

Down the gym tonight, half hour workout and nearly as long under the shower. Blimey it is wonderful to have a shower when it's your first for two days and you are normally a two bath a day girl. To quote Queen Elizabeth the First as personified ... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts A funny thing happened down the gym

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      239 comments

Actually it was a bit odd I was AT the gym, the reason I got there this evening instead of having the evening off that I'd promised myself is that they have hot water down the gym, something I haven't got at home at the moment, owing to my defun... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Best foot forward

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      104 comments

Well, new year, best to start the way I mean to go forward I reckon. So instead of a lie in this morning, I'm off to Loughton to go for a walk in Epping forest (for a change). But worry not, for I have a plan. This is going to be a differe... Read more

Well, it's mid-afternoon on new year's eve as I write this. I'm going to a ballet later, which is a good choice for someone who's trying not to consume unnecessary calories cos I can't afford the champagne at Covent Garden (12 for a SMALL glas... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Landscape under water

Friday, December 28, 2012      177 comments

I meet up with Stonecot for a walk up the river Lea today. To be fair, this is a landscape that is mostly under water all the time, consisting of a river, a canal, several streams and a series of fishponds. However there were lots of extra pool... Read more

This morning I open the front door to put the rubbish out (too late as it turns out, the dustmen have already been) and there is the postie, with a parcel for me. Me, in my nightshirt and dressing gown. I gulp and clutch at said dres... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts A walk in the park

Wednesday, December 26, 2012      105 comments

Limited options for exercise today. The gym's closed (open again tomorrow, I absolutely can't wait!) and public transport is scanty so getting to the outer reaches of London for a nice walk would be awkward. The weather's looking nice but the fo... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Post-Christmas lunch reflection

Tuesday, December 25, 2012      148 comments

Well, that's that so far as I'm concerned. A day and a bit expunged from my SparkMemory and as of this moment, I'm back on the wagon. Won't be eating anything else today - the mere thought of food makes my stomach feel a bit unruly. It was ... Read more

Today I decided to branch out and got out the as yet unused map of northwest London that I bought in the summer. It covers an area not known for beauty, including Watford and Harrow. I tick off part of the London LOOP (London Outer Orbital Path)... Read more

Saturday, December 22, 2012      179 comments

The gym I use closes at 4pm on weekends in the winter. This is irritating, but so long as I remember to leave home by 3pm I can get my workout in. So today, this is what I do. Arrive, sling coat in locker, get on treadmill etc etc. Keep an ... Read more

Today I went shopping to get some things for Christmas lunch. Originally I was going to have two days' SparkHoliday, to eat in a gluttonous manner but unfortunately I ate more than I ought in Cornwall. On the plus side I did two days of hi... Read more

Wednesday, December 19, 2012      102 comments

That's the announcement you get when cricket matches are rained off in summer. I mean 'summer', this is England after all. Today I was going to treat us all to another long walk, but when I looked out at the weather it was drizzle. The met offic... Read more

It's very annoying when you're on a holiday where you'd planned to do a lot of walking and you go and sprain an ankle. Best thing to do? Pretend you didn't sprain it. Works for me. So this morning, quarter to ten, I set off along the... Read more
