The Third Way
Thursday, October 15, 2020      4 comments

Got up yesterday and the top half of my left leg was really aching after the pulled muscle event during Tuesday's 'circuit' - I'm pretty sure that's what it is.  Hence it was difficult to move at all let alone exercise.  Rather frustrating but I... Read more

"Come on Body, time to get the trainers on".  It didn't like that.  Tensed up immediately.  "We're going to do circuits.  Well, one circuit to be precise.  Really easy going, you'll be fine honest".  First up five minutes on the exercise bike.  ... Read more
Listen up Body

Weigh in today and a further 1lb 12oz gained.  So much for my October goal of halting the weight gain.  Although there's still more than half the month to go so maybe there's still hope.  It was time to have a chat with The Body so I took it ups... Read more

I sat down to watch the Men's singles final of the French Open today with my heart in my mouth.  As I've said previously, I'm a HUGE Nadal fan.  He's one of my all time favourite male players.  Along with Bjorn Borg, Andre Agassi and Andy Murray... Read more

Sometimes we go round and round in circles trying to make our minds up.  Maybe we have too many choices?  Or not enough?  Maybe what we'd really like is currently not possible.  Or we're not sure what we really, really want?  Maybe we're frighte... Read more
Not frittering away my day
Friday, October 09, 2020      5 comments

I have spent a large part of this afternoon and evening watching the men's singles semi finals at Roland Garros.  Some might say that is frittering away my day.  I disagree.  Anything we do which gives us enjoyment [assuming it harms no one else... Read more

When I moved into base camp I had no kitchen equipment other than a wok, a small saucepan, two mugs, two plates, one teaspoon, two forks and two knives.  I bought a few basic bits and pieces plus gradually some things have arrived here from the ... Read more

Don't they just yell 'autumn' at ya? Whilst I was at Elaine's I was gifted a load of apples.  Well, to be precise, mostly she was given a load of apples.  Some of which I cored, peeled, and stewed for her to eat - as requested.  Most of them th... Read more

After my blog yesterday about 'I could' being more empowering than 'I should' [not to mention Meadsbay's very helpful 'big sis' advice], I figured I'd put it into practice today.  Every time I've had one of those 'I should' thoughts today, I've ... Read more
October Goals
Monday, October 05, 2020      10 comments

Monday.  Weigh in as usual.  Gained another pound.  Am I frustrated?  Hah!  It's my middle name.  So, my first goal for October is not to lose weight but simply to stop GAINING.  How?  Well that's the million dollar question isn't it?  I've done... Read more

The frustrations of local lockdown haven't been helped by the weather recently.  Cold, windy, and raining.  I know, I know, I'm living in The Wetlands now.  But even for here the rain has been relentless.  I recall seeing part of some rubbish TV... Read more

I mentioned bonfire night in my blog yesterday, which as some of you commented, is also known as Guy Fawkes night.  Basically it's a celebration[?] of Guy Fawkes' plot to blow up parliament on November 5th 1605, being foiled.   Remember, re... Read more
May day, may day, September is missing

It was here just now.  I've been searching for it all day.  It's definitely not in the garden.  I've looked everywhere, including down the sofa and underneath the bed.  I've even looked in the fridge.  Don't scoff.  A friend of mine once spent 3... Read more
Last of The Summer Cereal
Thursday, October 01, 2020      5 comments

Granted it doesn't have quite the same ring as 'last of the summer wine' but I'm not a wine maker, therefore I don't have summer wine.  Or winter wine.  Or any season wine really.  Though sometimes I used to make mulled wine when I was entertain... Read more

If I were an American Citizen, I'm damn clear on how I'd vote in your forthcoming election.  However, I'm not so I won't bother you with my irrelevant would be voting intentions.  I imagine most of you are equally sure of how you intend to vote ... Read more
