Fluffing around with portion sizes
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

Walk in the country
Yesterday we visited friends who are building a new home in the country. It was fun to get out for a drive. The paddocks are full of seeding grass which looks lovely but made me wheeze when we walked to the swimming hole. The neighbour's dogs ac... Read more
