Hi I am a 65 year old widow. Who lives with another widower.
Now that I am post menopausal I have to keep an eye on my cholesterol and weight. I have never had a weight problem until I retired. Now I have to watch what I eat !!!. I have 3 beautiful grandchildren, and 2 children of which I am a very proud Mum
My partner and I travel a lot in Australia and Europe
First pic. is in Holland
sec.Pic . is my Mums 80th birthday

I love cooking, growing my own vegetables
Doing jigsaws, but I now do them on the computer
I also love reading have been an avid bookworm all my life
I enjoy adulterating all my old favourite recipes to fit our new life style. I feel you do not have to deny yourself but be prepared to change how you do things, so that you can still enjoy life's little food treats

    Thanks for the good wishes Ruth. The surgeon wanted to do it yesterday, but I was still in Bundaberg and so it is on for next Tuesday. I am a little anxious about it, but just have to relax and try not to stress about it. Where did you go for Easter? I am so glad that we have cooler weather now on the GC. Still beautiful, but jsut pleasant and not muggy. Have a great day. emoticon

    HI Ruth, you are so right, it is hard to exercise when it is so muggy. I have had enough of it LOL. Be a couple more days yet then it will be hot for a couple of days. Bring on winter.
    have a great weekend.
