Disappointingly, I have spent the last few weeks in the doldrums. This is not something I am very practised at and I have found it really tough. So I apologise for not being part of the community in that time. I am still too raw to wr... Read more

9 miles walked (and still smiling)

Thursday, July 01, 2010      9 comments

Yesterday was a big day, in that I was working in London. I needed to be focussed and would be seated during two 2 hour train journeys and for 6 hours in a conference environment! And all on such a beautiful day. When I got up, the day was... Read more

Radical Change

Saturday, June 26, 2010      8 comments

I note, it's been a whole month since my last blog - the one that mentioned the need to find space. Evidence of that need, I think! As some of you know, last summer I took an early retirement deal - knowing that to make ends meet and pay ... Read more

Wednesday, May 26, 2010      6 comments

Juggling too many balls means you never focus on anything for long enough to take stock, evaluate, see things for what they really are and move on. I'm awaiting the results of my recent job application, but realise I can't achieve even smal... Read more

Today, I've spent time with my family - and it's about time. It was my grandson Sonny's 7th Birthday and we rampaged at a local park with friends and family, playing cricket, rounders (and yes I did join in) and hide and seek. Until today, ... Read more

Positive Slippage

Saturday, April 03, 2010      7 comments

Who would have thought it? I was going 'great guns' and had lost 16 lbs in 4 weeks - fantastic! And then . . . my internet went down. Spark withdrawal was enforced and I didn't cope. Not able to record nutrition, or fitness, or commen... Read more

Hecticity - how can I avoid it?

Monday, March 15, 2010      4 comments

It's likely that being so hectic in my life undermines my positivity. Having taken early retirement from 20 years of teaching, last year, I still need to earn enough money to cover another 11 years of mortgage and all those other bills we a... Read more

My Journey - Planning to get there.

Friday, March 05, 2010      5 comments

I'm new to this site - really enjoying it, but still trying to find my way around. I linked on to the geographic team area today and via that found 'Hampshire'. I wonder if there's ever a meet up event? I've noticed other groups seem to be gett... Read more
