Holey moley: sunscreen

Monday, April 23, 2012      6 comments

Yesterday included my first ever mole map. Perhaps it is only something we have in the antipodes. It involves having photos taken of your body and a map being made on a (much better looking, in my case) model. Then the mapper examines all your m... Read more

There is always more to be done but for the first time for a year I think I can say the garden is in order. Hedge trimming guys are coming in the next week or so, and I have a little bit of easy trimming to do. But mostly, all I need to do is pu... Read more

Swimmers' fatigue

Thursday, April 12, 2012      7 comments

If you are a swimmer, you'll know what I mean when I say I'm not referring to that pleasant post swim lassitude. No, I'm referring to what happens to your togs when they decide to give up the ghost. And what I want to know is, one, do they HAVE ... Read more

As young as you feel?

Sunday, April 08, 2012      7 comments

I'm on week 2 of the Know your numbers plan. This is a quick questionnaire to check the age of your heart. Not saying what my heart age is, except that, they say you are as young as you feel, but this plan says I am older than I feel. So I have... Read more

Easter bliss

New feathers and a new month

Monday, April 02, 2012      5 comments

The new month has given me some impetus to plan to tackle some projects. Last month I refreshed my wardrobe and now I have plenty of clothes that fit. I feel rather special as I pull out the new items and introduce myself to the world in them, a... Read more

Fluffing around with portion sizes

Thursday, March 15, 2012      8 comments

I've been reading the SP stuff about portion sizes but I can't really picture volume in my head. I meant to get some things from the $2 store, a deck of cards, a ping pong ball, that kind of thing to put on the table at mealtime to help me reall... Read more
