Or Day  Five of the 17 Day Firebreak Fortnight!  Tossed and turned again last night but The Insomnia Devils weren't able to keep me in their grip for quite so long.  I slept a little later than usual so in all got almost six hours.  Not id... Read more

Or Day  Four of the 17 Day Firebreak Fortnight!      The illustration I posted with my 'Fall Back' * blog on Sunday regarding the clocks going back, suggested adjusting the cooker clock by pressing every button in different combinations.  W... Read more

Or Day Three of the 17 Day Firebreak Fortnight!    Onto the scales I stepped this morning and I'd regained the 1lb 12oz I l'd lost last week.  No but no one is going to convince me that one 45 minute session in the pool can mean a differenc... Read more

Or Day Two of the 17 Day Firebreak Fortnight!   The clocks went back here in the UK last night.  Actually, this morning at 2 a.m to be precise. Not that I was up at that time to mark the moment.  'Spring forward, fall back' is a phrase many... Read more

For the last few weeks we've been in a kind of mini lockdown in my area.  Not meant to go in each other's homes, not meant to socialise internally anywhere, not meant to travel outside of our immediate area.  Plus of course the [what has become]... Read more

My local convenience store/Post Office is literally two minutes walk from my house.  My front door doesn't lock when you close it.  You have to use the key to lock it.  Not my decision - that's just how it was when I bought Base Camp.  The upsid... Read more

Some of you may recall I'm renting space in Elaine's garage to store some of my stuff.  Tbh I've moved most of it now but there's still a few bits there.  Of course neither of us thought it would continue for this long but then who could have pr... Read more

I am learning how to come to terms with the fact that once us women get to a certain age, we become invisible.  I never thought I was particularly good looking, or had a good figure.  I was always criticising myself.  I bet you hear me sista's d... Read more

When I set my goals for October, the first was to stop gaining weight.  Which to date I've failed at.  I was very tempted to skip my weigh in today on the basis of what we don't know can't harm us.  Except of course sometimes it can.  Besides, I... Read more

I've only been and gone and went and done it.  'What have you only been and gone and went and done' I hear you asking.  I've only been and gone and went and done the Silver Swim session at one of the local leisure centres - that's what I've only... Read more

Having guzzled my copious quantity of morning cha, I decided it was time for another word with The Body.  "Are you resisting my efforts to make you healthier and fitter [not to mention smaller]" I asked it.  The Body sent a twinge down the left ... Read more

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
