I live up 106 steps, and they've been giving me a bit of trouble since I sprained my knee. After treating it myself with rice (rest, ice, compression, elevation, and exercise) and anti inflammatories I was getting nowhere. In fact, there were a ... Read more
The winterless north, continued
It has been so rainy here, and it's getting a bit cold. So I am going back in my mind to our April trip to the winterless north. Last travelblog we had spent a night at Omapere after a drivey sort of day, which concluded with a sundown swim.

Hey there Sparkadees, checking in for the first time in a while. I've been logging in but keeping a low profile this month. Keeping up my hydration challenge, which has interacted a little with last month's sleep challenge, as might be expected.... Read more
Drink up: wine o'clock
That,s not quite what I had in mind for my hydrating June challenge, but I came home early today because my arms are overcooked from too much computer work.
It's Friday, it can be wine o'clock, I am rereading the Cormaran Strike books, it is v... Read more
Back to basics: Drink up
Taking a leaf out of OverworkedJanet's book to focus on something each month.
This month has been getting enough sleep. And it,s been more successful than I anticipated. I am feeling rested and relaxed, due to getting seven hours sleep most n... Read more
A good night's sleep
I'm awake after a good night's sleep, I got 8 hours! Felt tired yesterday, did minimal activity beyond a bit of house tidying and a water workout. Went to bed on time and slept like a top, and woke refreshed.
My sleep challenge this month ha... Read more
The winterless north - holiday continued.
It's raining and I have spent the weekend reading John Le Carre's Smiley's People trilogy. It's hard to remember that hardly a month ago we were swimming in the sea.
Last holiday blog we had made it to beautiful Ahipara at the base of 90 M... Read more
The world of sleep
My challenge this month is to improve my sleep and I am so pleased I started. It has surprised me how readily I have taken to more sleep. The last few nights I've woken in the small hours, and whereas in the past I would accept that it was all... Read more
How Fifi found her FitBit
I got in touch with the FitBit folk. They suggested I try to sync my FitBit down in the garden.
So I went down to where I thought I had lost it, and Lo, it tried to sync to my iPhone. I knew it was somewhere nearby, but where?
Three huge fa... Read more
You know Fifi loves her FitBit, right?
Well, yesterday whilst gardening, the FitBit came undone. I looked for it as soon as I noticed it, but it's hard to see a black FitBit amongst the ivy and other major green debris we were taking to the ... Read more
Feeble Beck Check
I am off to a slow start on the Beck Check committment but I know it will gain traction if I just hang in there. So here is my feeble Beck Check number two.
I have sat to eat nearly every time.
I have planned my meals 60% of the time. DH ... Read more
A good rub down helps this stress bunny
I was a bit stiff after my Thursday pool session, in a good way. I love that creaky feeling the day after an exercise session.
Yesterday I had a Bowen Therapy session scheduled, to help me cope with some physical problems I am having at work. ... Read more
An old friend
Thursday night is ladies' night at the programmes pool. It's a warm pool used for swimming lessons. It has just one lane, and you sure need it, because it is full of women and children behaving randomly as they enjoy the pool away from the male ... Read more
Even though it is early in the morning, I had eight hours sleep last night. This is pretty much unheard of for me.
How did I do it? I simply went to bed very early.
I was exhausted from work. On getting home, did ten minutes on my mini tra... Read more
