Today was my first day back at work after a 10-day break. I take my packed lunch, some instant coffee & creamer in a container for drinks - and, today, I decided to pop a herb tea-bag into my bag too. I often take herb teas to work - and don't... Read more
The Little Mermaid
Monday, May 23, 2016      10 comments

I couldn't have had a more delightful way to end my 10-day break from work, than going to see the Mermaid down at the harbour this evening. I lined up with everyone else, leaning over the harbour wall to see her swim and dive. She chats to the... Read more

The sun came out today - after a couple of rainy days, it was a joy to see and feel that sunshine again! I went down to the shops after breakfast and got some of the things I need for the next couple of days - from my list. I found that th... Read more
Give it a tweak!

I don't use a nutrition tracker, or count calories etc, but I do try to do a weekly menu plan for three meals a day - which keeps me on-track. I k... Read more
First Aid!

Yesterday morning, whilst out running, I tripped and fell - hurting my hand. It was a kind of sliding graze and my palm bled quite a lot. I was out on my own, on the cliff path at 6.30am, so I knew I had to look after myself. Firstly I sw... Read more

Today I visited our local museum with a couple of friends. I'd never been there before. We three friends met at evening classes, where we learn... Read more
Going into the jungle!

A principle of mellowing is to take one step at a time. This advice, which echoes FlyLady's mantra of 'just 15 mins', plus Spark's motivating call to do '10 mins a day', has enabled me to embark on the project to get a grip of my over-grown jun... Read more

Even though I live surrounded by sea..... I still sometimes have to make an effort to actually get onto the beach! I know that probably sounds ridi... Read more
Letting the Day Unfold
Sunday, May 15, 2016      11 comments

I woke to a beautiful, sunny morning - birds singing......... so I got on my running togs and went out for a gentle run. The town was empty - I could run down the centre of the road if I wanted to. There was no sound of cars at all - no deliver... Read more
Melting into Mellow Music
Saturday, May 14, 2016      12 comments

Today is the first day of my 10-day rest from work - and, to be honest, the first thing I'm feeling is boredom. A feeling of being a bit rudderless and not knowing what to do - I should probably do nothing for a while, until I know what I want ... Read more

I'm in a 3-day run of long work days: tonight I will be home at 11pm and out of the door again at 6.30am - bleah! Yesterday I was at work from 8am to 9pm (home at 10pm). Friday it's just an 8am to 6pm, but long enough! I'm keeping my sights s... Read more
Stop Complaining
Tuesday, May 10, 2016      17 comments

When I'm tired, I start complaining - I can hear myself doing it, but it's really hard to stop it! Do you ever get like that? I was reading about how to let go of grudges on WikiHow www.wikihow.com/Be-Mello
