Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts The shape of things to come

Friday, February 22, 2013      138 comments

Well, not quite, because it looks a bit shapeless hanging up there. But yesterday I went shopping for some work clothes and bought the first dress I have owned in 20 years. ... Read more

Sunday, February 17, 2013      354 comments

Well, I'm writing this before the trauma of yesterday's events blanks it from my mind. So here goes. Stonecot and I meet up at 9.05am (I'm five minutes late. This is normal practice. Stonecot is usually half an hour early except when she's ... Read more

Every time I'm down the gym (where I should be right now), there's a skinny 20-year-old blonde on the next machine to me. It's never the same one twice, you understand - the gym has an unlimited supply of them. She'll be wearing one of the... Read more

Today Stonecot and I walk from Chingford via a village called Upshire, to Epping. We set off at a brisk pace (set by me: we're meant to be taking exercise after all) up the hill to Queen Elizabeth's hunting lodge (ref previous blogs by both of u... Read more

Monday, January 28, 2013      139 comments

I seem to have been asleep for most of January. Apart from occasional forays to the front door to let in gas engineers (RIP my boiler, it finally died completely on Thursday last), I seem to have spent the month having colds and sleeping them of... Read more

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

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts An end and a beginning

Monday, December 31, 2012      191 comments

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

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
