What my mother said!
When I was about 6 someone gave me an autograph book. I don't know why. I didn't exactly hang out with 'famous people'. To be honest, I've never really seen the point of getting the scribble of some famous person anyway. Unless it's on a che... Read more
Getting a grip
Whether she intended to or not, Tresswann has reminded me that actually, I'm very lucky. So, I'm putting my grumpiness to one side and counting my blessings. Maybe I'll be able to wear one of my lovely dresses when we celebrate my daughters 21... Read more
I don't like February. Actually, that's an understatement [if not a downright lie]. I hate February. Each year, I try to avoid 'wishing it away' on the basis I shouldn't wish any part of my life away. Instead I negotiate it as best I can.

Lessons Have Been Learnt
Eek! I sound like a Politician. You know, when there has been a huge mess up that could have been avoided, and members of the current government [doesn't matter which 'flavour'], appear on the idiot box saying, "Lessons have been learnt - we c... Read more
I made it
Yes! I got through the 24 hour detox. As I'd figured - the hardest thing was going without tea. So it was useful in teaching me something about myself because previously, I would have thought going without cigarettes would be the hardest thi... Read more
All week I have been planning to have a 'detox day'. And every morning, I've got up, stuck the kettle on, gone to the loo, fed the cats, made a cup of tea, switched the computer on, read the daily headlines etc while drinking tea and smoking a ... Read more
8lb of Mind talk
Tiz + I'm looking forward to weighing in tomorrow. I've stuck to the healthy eating really well I think.
Tiz - Humph! Not done any proper exercise.
Tiz + True but I've been really good food wise and that has to be a positive thi... Read more
Veggie, veggie, veggie, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Made a wicked Veg curry this evening. Best of all, it's a 'one pot' meal', cos I added in some chopped up potatoes which means the carbs and extra fibre are already there - no need to cook rice or naan bread. Anyway, I made a huge big pot of i... Read more
Doing it proper again innit?
Easy day cooking wise. Made a vegetable soup for lunch. Luvverly. Still some left for lunch tomorrow. Youngest son also wants some tomorrow. The rest I'll put in the freezer. Eldest son is at his dad's tonight so only had to cook for my yo... Read more
Raring to go
As anticipated - my eldest boy opted for pizza for his family 'birthday meal'. Actually, to be honest, he fancied an Indian but my daughters b/f doesn't like curry [probably never tried it but that's another story]. So, pizza it was. Rather t... Read more
So far so good
Felt cold and grumpy today but I took myself off for a walk anyway. Finished up meeting a friend in town for coffee which was good. Also, emptied one of the freezers - found some prawns and some scallops. Had onions, ginger, garum marsala, ch... Read more
Breaking out in a fresh place
Whenever I need to get back on the 'healthy life style wagon', I always go about it the same way. First, I address my diet. If I'm honest, that isn't difficult for me once I focus. I don't have a 'sweet tooth'. I love almost all fruit and veg... Read more
Getting out of Reverse Gear
My youngest son's birthday is at the end of November. My eldest son's is this coming weekend. Sandwiched in-between of course is The Festive Season and New Year. In order to afford all this without resorting to credit [which I refuse to do], I... Read more
In reply to @Tresswann and @MoveitMary
You're right Mary - it would make a comedy of errors show. Though probably no one would believe it. Anyway, I stated in my last blog 'I'd probably forgotten some thing'. Well how could I have forgotten the hiccoughs on the actual day?
Th... Read more
I mentioned the other day that loads of things had gone wrong. I did say I wouldn't bore you with the details - that day. But didn't you read the bit where I said "I'll save it for another day"? Tsk! You should always take in the detail and r... Read more
