At last the day had come. The start of Roland Garros - otherwise known as The French Open. The first day and obviously the first rounds don't offer up so many mouth watering prospects by the way of matches, but there were a few I was looking fo... Read more
I was describing to my eldest son about the quinoa salad today. What's quinoa like he asked me. Kind of like cous cous I told him. "I like cous cous" he replied. "I know" I answered, "I'm your mother after all"! "Fair enough" he responded an... Read more
Tasty and Delicious Hot or Cold
Zesty Quinoa and Mixed Bean Salad - Tasty and Delicious Hot or Cold. That's what it said on the packet, and at a cost of one pound for two portions it was a no brainer. Quick to cook too - what's not to like? I found the answer to that questi... Read more
Five years younger/healthier week one
There are so many things I need to address that it would be a full time job to cover them all. So I figured, start with two or three core issues. Things that are really affecting my health and well being and so, vital to deal with.
The fi... Read more
It's only six days since my decision to re focus and 'get back on track' but as Monday has always been my weigh in day, I weighed myself this morning [sigh - yesterday morning now]. In fact you could almost call it five days given I checked in ... Read more
St Totteringham Day
It was late arriving this year, but arrive it did. Just as surely as night follows day. What the hell is St Totteringham Day I hear you ask? It's the day when us 'Gooners' [Arsenal fans] celebrate the fact that for yet another season, it is m... Read more
I have become pretty good at finding live tennis streams. It started with relying on the advice of other [online] people, but now, I've rather found my way around. I've learnt some of the by passes and tricks as it were. I even have some peop... Read more
The last few weeks have been crazy. Local election campaigns are always hectic and naturally things go wrong on occasion but this year seemed worse than ever. Never mind. We survived. What with that and all the business over the house and mum... Read more
It's election time and as party chair, I have to approve everything. Last night I had to draft a leaflet that needed to be printed and delivered today. No worries, I quickly composed the draft and asked the main candidate to make any adjustmen... Read more
I blogged some time ago about the situation with my house. Trying to come to a decision has been so hard. Not least because obviously it has a knock on effect to so many other aspects of my life plus impacts on the children, especially my sons... Read more
Monday 11th April was mine and my daughter's birthday. Usually we go to the beauty salon near my home and have a treat or two but they aren't open on Monday's. So we did that the Saturday before. On our actual birthday, my daughter arrived ju... Read more
Cooey - I'm still here
Just about. I'm still hanging on in. Nothing as yet has been sorted about the house. I'm not giving up. Not on that, or losing weight and getting fitter, or indeed anything. British Stiff Upper Lip an all that. "Never give in, never give in... Read more
That Was The Week That Was
Or TW3 as the TV programme became affectionately known as back in 1900 and frozen to death.

Fear, Irritation, Anger, Frustration, and - Gratitude!
I blogged recently about the situation with my house. Of course I'm fearful about what will happen. How will I resolve it all? Can I answer everyone's needs and if so, how? I've tried to acknowledge the fear and set it aside so I can actu... Read more
Feeling the love - oh to be a Gooner
Actually I've been a 'Gooner' since I was a primary school child - more years than I really want to own up to. But, what is a Gooner, I hear you ask [well some of you]. A Gooner is a supporter/fan of Arsenal. A team in the top English footbal... Read more
