I thought things were getting better, but this week I have been on the floor again; I just can't stay awake for any length ... Read more
I am taking part in the 5% challenge once again.
I didn't complete the last one - in fact I drifted away part way through it because I just couldn't muster up the will to sign onto the computer at all.
I have been allocated a different t... Read more
So I have been AWOL again. It seems most of by blog entries seem to be explaining absences, but here we go.
I have talked before about how I suffer seasonal depression. For the most part I have developed coping mechanisms that allow me to h... Read more
Ordinarily I don't do showing off, but I have had a really productive afternoon making some earrings and thought I'd share them.
My first job was to replicate a pair I made for my daughter as she was allergic to the metal on the original pa... Read more
I have been struck today with an almost overwhelming need to do something huge - to really push myself to my absolute physical limit.

This cropped up on my facebook feed this morning which I found quite interesting.
The most fascinating thing I found about the list was that many of the foods on my (o+) poison... Read more

I never got around to any sort of finalisation of my Winter challenge results, so here goes:
Starting Weight (1/18) : 165
[5% goal: 8lbs - 157]
3/15... Read more
WEIGHT: I DID IT!!! 5% Goal reached. I am at 157 which I am really pleased with.
Ideally I wanted to lose at least 3lbs to hold any hope of reaching my birthday 145, but realistically I was never going to get that with the busy week I have had... Read more
I need to take stock and since I am in something of a habit of measuring up on a Friday - and Fridays seem to be shaping up as my "me" day, giving me the time to sit and think... so it makes sense to TRY (at least) to make a weekly sum-up post o... Read more
Just flying by to let you all know I am still here. February is already panning out to be supremely busy for me... but I kind of knew it would be!
Baby started Sea Cadets a few weeks ago and has been constantly bombarding me since the first... Read more
