Thursday - strength-training anyone?

Thursday, October 01, 2015      6 comments

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

The stuff no-one talks about

Wednesday, September 30, 2015      4 comments

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

East South East

Sunday, September 27, 2015      8 comments

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

The Sandcastle Competition

Saturday, September 26, 2015      12 comments

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

Action = happiness

Saturday, September 26, 2015      14 comments

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! I went out into my garden and... Read more

Am I bothered?

Friday, September 25, 2015      15 comments

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

Full-bodied with dark chocolate overtones..................

Friday, September 25, 2015      8 comments

I usually drink decaff - but I also like to buy fair-trade - so when I bought coffee last time (in my local Oxfam shop) there was no de-caff, so I bought some Cafe Direct Machu Picchu coffee. Read more

Home Sweet Home

Thursday, September 24, 2015      11 comments

Well, it's nice to be home - but not as sweet as I'd hoped. I have the blues (again) - and it's all my own fault really - for letting things slip for a couple of weeks. If you have a tendency to get overwhelmed with life, you just have to have ... Read more

Mind Your Mind

Wednesday, September 23, 2015      9 comments

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

Wild Things!

Monday, September 21, 2015      10 comments

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

Sunday - in broken prose

Sunday morning started well with a lazy read in bed. emoticon Sunday morning turned kinda grey but ... Read more

Finding the still point

Saturday, September 19, 2015      9 comments

I'm not a 'natural' meditator - but I find that certain activities enable me to 'lose' myself and go within. This might be running, walking, doing ... Read more

A Quiet Day

Friday, September 18, 2015      11 comments

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

My Spare Tyre has deflated!

Thursday, September 17, 2015      12 comments

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

Cloud watching

Thursday, September 17, 2015      11 comments

It's another day of grey, undecided sort of weather............ and I have a strong desire to walk down to the beach, lay down on the dunes, and just watch the clouds. Read more
