Don't worry - be happy

I haven't been practising that much lately! I seem to have been away from Spark for an age and I’m creeping back with some trepidation. I’ve got a lot of stuff going on in my personal life and I’m not really sure if I can sustain my return ... Read more
My New Year starts here
Tuesday, January 10, 2012      11 comments

As it turned out I had a bit of a bad time over the Christmas and New Year holidays. My partner and I both had a dose of flu that neither of us could throw off. I’ve come off best although I am tired all the time STILL – just seems to go on an... Read more
Christmas time away
Saturday, December 24, 2011      4 comments

I'm off to my little house in the country for a few days to have a cosy and village-y Christmas time where everybody smiles and says 'hallo' and 'Happy Christmas' as they pass. I like that friendly attitude and am really looking forward to a go... Read more
NOT the way to prepare for Christmas!
Wednesday, December 21, 2011      6 comments

I'm passing this on because it worked for me today. A Doctor on TV said we all need to have inner peace at Christmas and to do that we should always finish things we start so we could get through the preparations in a calm and orderly fashio... Read more

Jumped on the scales this morning for the weekly weigh in. Nothing lost - and I'd been working hard at it all - but I was pretty indulgent in London at the weekend ... Read more
London - Christmas windows
Monday, December 19, 2011      6 comments

I used to live on the edge of London and visited it very regularly. Now I am further away and go less often – traffic and parking difficulties generally – boring stuff,but discourages me from making the effort. However, I like to get there for ... Read more
How close to the train track can you actually work??!!

This was sent to me by a friend working in Beijing who has huge admiration for the 'can do' attitude of the Chinese regardless of consequences. From my time working in Hong Kong I also know that they do indeed do things that to us here seem impo... Read more
More pictures from my village

I really love the little village where my cottage is and I am always delighted to find the time to spend here. This is my pre-Christmas visit and so different from last year which was extremely cold and very very wet. Today there is bright, wa... Read more
A wedding - finally!!
Tuesday, December 06, 2011      10 comments

My 'non'-daughter-in-law was determined to be what she called a 'real life' daughter-in-law and wife by the time she was forty. They've been together for nearly 20 years and have two children and so much history behind them. So - last minute as... Read more
Another day - another mood on 'my' common
Friday, November 18, 2011      8 comments

Today is grey and it was drizzling earlier but in my new frame of mind I’m not letting the weather stop me. So – boots and a wax jacket and off I went. There was mist over the hills and no one around – probably because I was later than I inten... Read more
Will I/ Won't I?
Thursday, November 17, 2011      5 comments

. . . go for a walk and so stick with my resolution to walk every day without fail. Woke up late (too much 'fun' in the pub last night! Guess I’ll pay for that on the scales!!) and thought I really wouldn't bother. However - when I drew back my... Read more
On the common near my little house in the country
Wednesday, November 16, 2011      3 comments

This morning I went out really early to walk on the common outside my front gate. I was going out for the day with my partner and wanted to get the walking done. Good thing I did it early because it started pouring with rain later in the mornin... Read more

I'be been so busy this weekend that I lost it - AGAIN! Focus, that is. This happens so easily - something in my head says 'OK there's an excuse now so I don't need to think about cardio.' I do know that's rubbish and I also know that if I don't... Read more
And the walking continues . . .

. . hoping it'll really become a daily habit and not an intermittent habit as it has been. Today I went - again - to the sea at the bottom of my square - but very early when both life and Nature are very different. All the sailing boats (most... Read more
Walking by the sea
Wednesday, November 09, 2011      1 comments

I went walking by the sea at the bottom of my road today. It was not intended - I meant to walk on the Downs behind Brighton but for various reasons it wasn't to be. So - determined to get in my 60 minute walk somewhere I enjoy, I just too... Read more
