For a change this blog is not all about me. I keep coming back to a thread on the message boards, the husband and junk food: what a great topic. When I started Sparking I found the food my DH liked to bring into the house really hard to re... Read more

I hit the ground running at work, and didn,t stop until 5.30. Unfortunately that is metaphorically running, days like today I am lucky to crack 3000 steps, because I am pretty much tied to my desk. Time was, I would drag myself home, late, tired... Read more
