Tizrella you SHALL go to the Ball.

Sunday, February 07, 2016      3 comments

Actually once again it wasn't a ball. Not even a dance. Merely a meet up with friends in a pub in London. Some of you may recall that prior to the festive season when my worker friend was here, I simply had too much to do to go with him to me... Read more

I deserve it you know

Friday, January 29, 2016      5 comments

According to an email I received from my internet/phone/TV provider earlier, I deserve the ZTE Blade L3 Fantastic. If only I knew what a ZTE Blade L3 was I might appreciate how much I deserved it even more. A bit of research informed me... Read more

Gas and Air

Ever since they were born, I've encouraged the not so tiddly, tiddly peeps, to ask or tell me anything they wanted to. Mostly this is a good thing I think. They trust me to be honest with them, to treat their concerns with respect, and I guess... Read more

Jumping Jack Flash

Wednesday, January 27, 2016      3 comments

Yesterday evening I tried to get a few hours shut eye because I wanted to watch three matches from the Oz Open in the wee small hours. I didn't manage to get much sleep but I got up again around 2.00 a.m and sat myself down at my computer in th... Read more

Just get up and MOVE Tiz

Tuesday, January 26, 2016      2 comments

Well now, what am I going to do to get myself moving again? I can hear the chorus as you all holler, "well doh Tiz, just get up and MOVE". Fair enough. But what am I going to do when I just get up and move? How often am I going to just get u... Read more

A gain again

Monday, January 25, 2016      5 comments

Weigh in day today. Stepped on the scales to find I've re-gained 1lb 10 oz this past week. Was I disappointed? Natch. Was I surprised? Not really. I was shocked at how much I've regained but I knew I hadn't had a 'good' week. I knew I had... Read more

The 'Chippy'

Sunday, January 24, 2016      6 comments

A month or two ago, a new fish and chip shop opened at the bottom of my road. I haven't tried it. In fact, until today I hadn't been anywhere near it. My worker friend tried it when he last visited but I declined. This evening I realised I n... Read more

A mother's dilemma

Saturday, January 23, 2016      7 comments

I am facing a huge financial problem. Which brings with it a moral or 'parental' dilemma. Forgive me, I don't want to go into the details here. But is there a point as a parent, when it is OK to put our own needs or desires first? Or at leas... Read more

Where there's a will

Thursday, January 21, 2016      2 comments

I blogged recently about aiming to look/be 'ten years younger/healthier' and in particular how during week one I was going to work on my sleep pattern. Possibly not the best timing because, I've found another site to stream the tennis. Which m... Read more

21 for 21

Sunday, January 17, 2016      5 comments

Just hours now until we celebrate my eldest boy's 21st. He remains disinterested. He was clear he didn't want to 'go out'. In fact, he didn't want a 'fuss' made at all. He didn't want any presents, and he'd really rather just have a normal d... Read more

Birthday Cakes

Saturday, January 16, 2016      6 comments

When my children were small, I'd make their birthday cakes. No problem. Oh but the decorating of them. I'd try and keep it simple but even so, I just couldn't do it. I'd be in tears of frustration. One year, on my daughter's fifth or sixth b... Read more
