Interesting place in the week - Thursday. It's not 'hump' day. It's nearly the end of the week, but it's not the end of the week.
I had to look it up ....
"The English word Thursday is named after the Norse god of thunder, Thor. Thurs... Read more
I'm undoubtedly not the first person to see and read this article about loose skin after weight loss. But it affected me greatly to read it, and I have never seen photographs like this before, just always wondered........... it's about a young... Read more
It's a glorious late September morning - and I sat on my doorstep (with a blanket wrapped round me!) to enjoy the peace of a Sunday morning with my coffee and breakfast. I opened a little book of poems I'd borrowed from the library during the S... Read more
This afternoon was the last day of a two week festival of art, music and literature - and there was an Architectural Sandcastle Competition on the beach. I went down to take a look with my friend. It was a lovely afternoon - one of those 'so g... Read more
I wanted to let you know what effect doing that mind-map exercise has had so far - it's amazing how the action of writing things down (especially in that way) stimulates the brain to start activating the plans!

Some of you probably know that I've been a bit 'bothered' lately - and I decided to set it all out on a big sheet of paper - and ended up with a sort of mind-map. (I also did a video explaining it - but it's too big for Spark - I've put it on Yo... Read more

A couple of months' ago there was a small poster up in our local library announcing that there a group called 'Brain Training for Older People' was going to happen - email if interested. I emailed. There is a research programme starting in Nov... Read more
My run this morning was pretty wild - mud, wind, wet stuff! and it kind of set the mood for the day!
I took myself down the road to visit the local Wildlife Sanctuary. It's so small compared to American things that I'm almost hesitant to... Read more
Some days I just want to be quiet - and today was one of those days. I went out for a run first thing - had a shower - had breakfast. No radio - no noise - just silence.
I had thought of going on the bus back to St Ives to listen to a l... Read more
A second blog from me today (I started early this morning!).
I was able to weigh myself on my own scales this morning - first thing - and I was 8stone 10.25lbs (122.25lbs). That's OK by anyone's standards, right?
I have been building ... Read more
