Hi everyone, it's a quiet Saturday morning, everyone else is in bed so I'm free to type! Where have I been and what's going on? My sister lives with us and getting time to spend on the computer isn't as easy as it used to be. She has lost th... Read more

Please don't think me rude if I haven't replied to a blog or thanked you for a Spark Goodie. My sister now lives with us and sitting at the computer for more than 15 minutes is now a forgotten dream! As her concentration is limited she will as... Read more

I have had a wonderful holiday. My husband had a good birthday and we celebrated in style. Yes, I know what is written, but sometimes the extra course really is necessary, especially when the flavours are spectacular. We are both big eate... Read more

Just had an email from that boy of ours. He has been granted citizenship just 3 years and one week after he arrived on a spouse visa. He now needs to get a passport so he can leave the country! I'm absolutely fine about this, he was "made in... Read more

Two of my near neighbours have decided they "need to go on a diet" and have enlisted my help. I said I would weigh them and save the money in a jar as holiday money for them. Of course, this makes me accountable again as I was to my Welsh neig... Read more

First of all I want to thank all those kind Sparkfriends who sent me words of encouragement after my last blog. I am generally an optimistic, positive soul and won't stay down for long. This was the case over the last 24 hours. We went to... Read more

Like all things in life there is a time when the newness and excitement fades away and routine takes over. It's happened to my Sparking. I know how far I've come but the enthusiasm fired by falling numbers on the scale is definitely a thing of... Read more
