Weighed in yesterday and I'd LOST 1lb 4oz.  Yippee you all say.  And yippee I say too.  I'm all for yippee ing as much as possible and will join in a good yippee at the slightest excuse.  But once we've all finished yippee ing, can you tell me h... Read more

I've never been a planner.  I don't mean to say that I never plan,arrange, organise things.  Just that I didn't have a plan for my life.  Honestly, some people seem to come out of the womb knowing what they want to be when they 'grow up' and by ... Read more
I didn't get where I am today

By careful planning and following a 'road map'.  Especially not in the last five years or so.  Although you could say it was single mindedness in the last few years that DID actually get me to where I am now.  I've been asked to blog about how I... Read more

I didn't weigh myself Monday.  I didn't forget, or not bother - on the contrary, I stepped onto the scales as usual.  Beep - 'Lo' they told me.  Referring to the batteries and not my weight, unfortunately.  So I charged the batteries and weighed... Read more
Elaine's Visit
Tuesday, September 15, 2020      6 comments

Amazingly, given how late [early?] it was when we arrived at Base Camp, both Elaine and I were up shortly after 9 a.m  Elaine was woken by her dogs wanting to have a pee.  Despite having stayed up even later to watch the tennis, I just woke up a... Read more

Having established that not much of the smaller stuff in Elaine's garage was mine, I tried to discourage her from driving me home but she was adamant.  I'd had a bad feeling about it from when she first suggested it - rightly as it turns out.  P... Read more

No, not this one.  I'm referring to the last weekend of my holiday back 'home'.  Saturday morning daughter and I went to the beauty salon a few doors from where I used to live. I had a pedicure and a manicure which was a nice treat.  We dropped ... Read more

Can you believe it's a year today since I moved into Base Camp?  And what a year it has been for all of us.  Oh my though, I was horrified when I first arrived.  Having been 'homeless' for a couple of weeks, I was looking forward to having a bas... Read more

Tuesday 25th August was the anniversary of my mother's birthday, so daughter and I went to Southend for the day.  Mum lived the last almost 40 years of her life in the area.  Even before she moved there it was a big part of my early days, and of... Read more
