Oh no you groan - not more Tennis? 'Fraid so. I've been following the Davis Cup final between Belgium and Great Britain this weekend. Luckily the BBC are actually covering it because the tennis streaming site I was so excited to fin... Read more

Buy Nothing Day

Friday, November 27, 2015      8 comments

I don't buy newspapers but I do drop into their websites. The Guardian likes to run live blogs. Monday to Thursday each week while parliament is sitting, they have a live politics blog. They also have politics blogs when the Party Conferences... Read more

Here in the UK we donít have Thanksgiving although my friend Kim who came from the States would always celebrate. We lost Kim very suddenly on the 19th Feb 2012 Today is one of those days when I'm thinking of her a great deal. And so, Iíd lik... Read more

My 'nursing' shift is done

Wednesday, November 25, 2015      0 comments

Yesterday my 'worker friend' showed some improvement - not least his appetite seemed to be returning. He was due to be travelling home today. He woke up feeling much better this morning and was indeed able to travel home this evening. So, my ... Read more

Channelling my inner Pollyanna

Tuesday, November 24, 2015      3 comments

Weigh in Monday. No loss again. In fact a 2 oz gain. Negligible I know but hugely frustrating after 2 months of basically being stuck. There was no question of my giving up but, I did feel a bit frustrated. And then I looked at my 'stats' s... Read more

Tizzy's weekend ups and downs

Sunday, November 22, 2015      1 comments

My youngest son's birthday went well yesterday. It was lovely to have all three of my children here together. I'm still getting used to the idea they are all adults and living their own lives. Not to mention my daughter no longer lives at hom... Read more

Plumbing, Perusing, Pruning and Planning.

Friday, November 20, 2015      1 comments

My 'worker friend' started on the actual plumbing of the ground floor shower room today. Unfortunately he has a slight cold so progress is slow. Hard to perform to the best of your ability when you're feeling rough. I spent part of my d... Read more

He's back

Thursday, November 19, 2015      2 comments

My 'Worker Friend' is back. Actually he arrived Tuesday evening. I welcomed him with a moussaka I made with quorn mince. I made it without pre frying the aubergines which greatly reduced the fat and calorie count, but more importantly, still ... Read more

Weigh in yesterday and I was back to the halfway point. Which means the extra lb or so was temporary and no doubt making myself take a walk Saturday and Sunday dealt with that. But I'm still stuck. Time for some tweaking. Firstly takin... Read more

No Squirrels

Sunday, November 15, 2015      2 comments

I didn't want to again today. But I did. It wasn't all that cold, and it wasn't raining, and, well, I'm an expert at excuses. Which means I'm also an expert at recognising them too. So I put my boots on and off I trundled. As it was dry, I t... Read more

I Don't Want To

Saturday, November 14, 2015      3 comments

I often talk to myself. I tell people it's so I can be sure of getting an intelligent answer. Actually it's because I'm as mad as a nine bob note but shush, don't tell anyone - it's a secret. So this afternoon I had a little chat with myself;... Read more

Tantrum Time

Friday, November 13, 2015      9 comments

At the end of October, I finally reached the half way point in my weight loss journey. Hurrah! I weigh in on Mondays and I have remained stuck [again] since then. Monday weigh in and not so much as an ounce lost. So I decided for a few weeks... Read more

Life is what happens...........

............... while you're busy making other plans. Just as I get my head around the fact that mum's care home is closing and I must find another, so I get a call to tell me mum has been taken into hospital with breathing problems. ... Read more

Carrot Spaghetti

Wednesday, November 04, 2015      7 comments

My daughter mentioned this to me some months ago when I said I was trying to avoid gluten in an attempt to mitigate 'Arthur's' affect on me but I really missed pasta. I've kept an eye out for it but until last week didn't find any. Suddenly, i... Read more
