Can anyone out there help me please? I have at least 4 pedometers now, having laboured under the obvious delusion that they were not working properly. I now have to acknowledge that the one not working properly must be me! :( They all say... Read more

Our lovely Alex is home! Thank you for all your thoughts, enquiries and prayers. We are all so relieved, although she is still being monitored, and needs to be very careful. The day before she was discharged, two consultants stood by her bed and... Read more

I thought when our kids were born, that we would nurture them, do what we could to bring them to maturity, then they would leave aged 18, and fend for themselves. Hey ho. Not only did they not all leave at age 18, when they did go, they came b... Read more

September sees our elder son's 40th birthday (How did that happen, when I am so young? lol) Younger son thought it would be a good idea if we scanned photos from his lifetime - especially any really embarrassing ones - and have them running on a... Read more

So we had a lovely Afternoon Tea, which I had been heavily involved in organising. We raised over £350.00 for the local group which brings children from Chernobyl over for a holiday each year, particularly so that they can each have a supply of ... Read more

Well, there I was, getting ready to go to a Choir concert, so I cooked a speedy low fat pork 'n pineapple thing with rice, ate some, picked up my music and went. Later, I returned, conscious that I wasn't really hungry - but felt that I had... Read more

Our son and his partner are treating us to a long weekend in Boston in June. Am very excited, as we've never been to the US before, and there seems to be so much to do and see. Any not-to-be-missed places/experiences? What's the weather like in ... Read more

I love this badge, which many folk are wearing in Cockermouth. A week after the devastating floods, the full extent of the damage and loss is becoming clearer. Some people will have months out of their homes, and it will be a long while before a... Read more

I am so sad today for the area where we live - Cockermouth is our nearest town, and it is devastated by Thursday's floods - all the shops on Main Street and many houses have been inundated by the flood water as the river burst its banks. We've n... Read more
