Breaking out in a fresh place
Tuesday, January 14, 2014      1 comments

Whenever I need to get back on the 'healthy life style wagon', I always go about it the same way. First, I address my diet. If I'm honest, that isn't difficult for me once I focus. I don't have a 'sweet tooth'. I love almost all fruit and veg... Read more

My youngest son's birthday is at the end of November. My eldest son's is this coming weekend. Sandwiched in-between of course is The Festive Season and New Year. In order to afford all this without resorting to credit [which I refuse to do], I... Read more

You're right Mary - it would make a comedy of errors show. Though probably no one would believe it. Anyway, I stated in my last blog 'I'd probably forgotten some thing'. Well how could I have forgotten the hiccoughs on the actual day? Th... Read more
Chaos theory

I mentioned the other day that loads of things had gone wrong. I did say I wouldn't bore you with the details - that day. But didn't you read the bit where I said "I'll save it for another day"? Tsk! You should always take in the detail and r... Read more
12th Night

So, I've spent the day, taking down decorations, getting rid of the tree, blah blah blah. I didn't think it would take long really - I don't go for much in the way of decorations. I always have a real tree. And lots of candles. Plus table cl... Read more

Here I am again. It was all going so well last time I was here. And then, it all went so wrong. Problem after problem. I shan't bore you with that now - I'll save it for another day! Meanwhile though, I managed to put back on every lb I'd l... Read more
Holiday review part 2
Wednesday, September 04, 2013      3 comments

The boys went home. I felt really sad waving them off. But my friend Mandy arrived later the same day. She was coming the day after her birthday for the weekend, so I wanted to 'treat' her. I'd planned all sorts of luxury's but as the weathe... Read more

Yesterday my eldest boy started at college. He wants to do an extra couple of A levels before going to uni so is doing a years intensive course. Today my youngest boy started back at school in the 6th form. I can't believe my youngest is now ... Read more

Shepard's delight. Red sky in the morning - shepherds warning. So they say. Here's some 'red sky' pics I took whilst I was away. ... Read more
Family reunion
Saturday, August 17, 2013      3 comments

Had an amazing time in Liverpool. Or to be more precise - The Wirral. My cousin's half brother and wife accommodated me. Felt like I was staying in a luxury hotel except it was better than that, and much friendlier. I've been longing t... Read more
barbecue fun
Sunday, August 11, 2013      2 comments

Went to a barbecue at a friends house today. I had meant to walk there - it's about two miles, so figured that would offset some of the food. Was running late though so had to grab a cab. Still on the upside - meant I could wear heels. ... Read more
An Epiphany Moment

I promise I will get around to posting about my 'holiday' but things are a bit hectic at the moment. Anyway, I wanted to share what seemed like quite an important thing. After the first few days of my trip, I was at the lodge on my own fo... Read more

It's an old fashioned word but I guess that's what I was doing whilst I was away. I meant to blog each day and upload photo's but somehow that didn't happen. So I figured I'd do a series of blogs when I got home, detailing my 'break away'. ... Read more
Helllllllllllloooooooooo - time to catch up

So many hurrahs! Firstly, my operation went ahead on June 25th - no complications. Bruising and swelling will take up to 12 weeks to go down but is already much reduced and hardly noticeable from a visual point of view. Total recovery time is... Read more
Operational frustration
Monday, June 17, 2013      3 comments

I should have expected it. My operation was cancelled. Now scheduled for the 25th June so another week to go. I've been so messed around over this and all I want is to get it over with. Previously, one of the junior doctors told me tha... Read more
