Ten Years Younger
Saturday, January 09, 2016      2 comments

A long time ago I wrote on my spark page that I wanted to look 10 years younger. The phrase comes from a TV programme that years ago my daughter and I would occasionally watch and frankly - extract the urine from. Basically they took the subje... Read more

Well so I'm told. Because my cunning plan worked - as usual. Some of my friends did indeed come and hoover up the calories for me. Before ... Read more
Glad Tidings I Bring

Weigh in day. And I'd lost two of the three pounds gained over the festive season. Granted the '12 days of Christmas' aren't actually over yet but whatever - I'm happy to record a loss. There is still 'stuff' around the house that could derai... Read more
No Milk Today
Sunday, January 03, 2016      2 comments

"My love has gone away". Herman's Hermits. Who remembers the group, let alone the song? Actually I think I preferred 'My Sentimental Friend'. It was 'No milk today' though that popped into my head earlier. Except the words in my head were '... Read more
Pluck the day

Or carpe diem as you may know it. I started writing this blog on New Year's Eve when I'd discovered I had gained 3lbs. Probably more now. C'est la vie. New Year's Eve, is a good time to reflect on the year. Or at least as good a time a... Read more
Baggy Trousers
Tuesday, December 29, 2015      5 comments

Actually, more baggy clothes in general. Sunday I was going to a little Christmas soiree. I was uncertain what to wear - especially given most of my clothes are still in the boxes/bags recently returned from the storage company. On a whim I d... Read more

I hope you're all having/have had, a Sparkling Day. Mine as ever has been wonderful. A whole day and evening with my three wonderful children. Now they are adults, it's rare I get to spend a whole day with all three of them together even thou... Read more

"Who put the bomp in the bomp bah bomp bah bomp? Who put the ram in the rama lama ding dong? Who put the bop in the bop shoo bop shoo bop? Who put the dip in the dip da dip da dip? Who was that man? I'd like to shake his hand He mad... Read more
Dashing through the house
Tuesday, December 22, 2015      3 comments

It's been a crazy week or so. My 'worker friend' and I sorted and sifted. We cleared and we cleaned. De cluttered and re organised. At times we were like a couple of whirlwinds blowing through the house. Mind you, sometimes by the end of th... Read more

No, you shall not go to the ball TizCinders. I was invited. Well, not quite to a ball. But for the evening out in London with my 'worker friend' and some other friends. Late afternoon I realised it just wasn't going to work. I needed ... Read more
Journey to the Centre of the Earth
Monday, December 14, 2015      4 comments

We made it. Eventually. By late Sunday morning we had not only found the floor in my youngest son's room, we had discovered it still had a carpet. We swept and hoovered and it all looks, well kind of normal now. So then we started on my ... Read more
The Worker Returns
Friday, December 11, 2015      3 comments

Fit and well this time [we hope]. He arrived late yesterday afternoon so after a coffee and a chat, we walked to B & Q to get my Christmas tree. I always choose a large tree - larger than me, which I can't carry. So either my 'worker friend' ... Read more
Row row row your boat
Tuesday, December 08, 2015      7 comments

I stated the other day that I WOULD find a space for the rowing machine. And indeed I did. I cleared a space in the dining room and when the rowing machine isn't actually in use, I can fold it and lean it against the wall. Not ideal but, it's... Read more

Monday is my weigh in day. The routine goes like this: Get up, switch the kettle on, go to the loo, feed the cats, make tea, hop on the scales, drink tea, get on with the day. The rest of the week the routine is: Get up, swit... Read more
Something isn't right
Sunday, December 06, 2015      2 comments

As part of my goal to increase my fibre intake, I have been doing the 30 day fit and fibre full challenge for the last few days. I have to say I haven't found it all that helpful so far. It's almost as if one is encouraged to eat more, even if... Read more
