Just been to the doctor to find out about my blood test results. (As an aside, this was the second sample taken within 7 days, as the first lot went missing. According to the lab, I was never there. Obviously my blood grew legs and went wal... Read more

Mr Gent was here today. We had seafood with tomato and celery salsa and lentils for lunch. He said: "This is why I've been banned from seafood restaurants", and proceeded to build weird Transformer-type monsters out of scampi, prawns, musse... Read more

With a cold (I woke up with it this morning), and almost 10 kg more than when I left. I should be upset but I'm not. I think it might be for two reasons: one is that I personally think I look better right now - due to my tummy not having en... Read more

That's me! These are my last few days in Florence and I'm trying to fit everything in. Everything being not much really, except a dismembered family that is almost impossible to get together (ahhhhh, the beauty of in-fighting families). I'm tr... Read more

This morning I went to pick up my mother's x-ray results. I walked there but on my way back it started raining just after I'd gone past the point where I could have got a bus, so I decided to take a shortcut. This brought me through the old ps... Read more

Wow! I've got to get back to London so I can stop eating!!! I've no idea how many kg I've gained but I'll worry about that when I get back to London and I can more easily get back on track. I had a lovely time in the Alps, it didn't snow ... Read more

Actually, it's just "1". Picture this: go to a shop where you need to prove your ID before you can use their services (for example, like I did yesterday so I could use the internet in a cafe'). Request the service you like. When the ass... Read more

Just a quickie 'cos I'm at an internet cafe' where the keyboards don't seem to have a working space bar between them (it takes all my concetration nottowrite likethisifyouknowwhatImean). Anyway, it seems I flew out just in time - Mr Gent in... Read more
All dressed up and almost ready to go!

Well, ok, "dressed up" is a bit overstating it... I'm still in my pjs. Actually, that's not entirely accurate either as I don't own pjs; more an old jumper and leggings that I use in bed. Oh so sexy! I've spent the last few days getting r... Read more
