The Birthday
Tuesday, April 13, 2021      11 comments

Journey here on Saturday was fine though more people travelling than on previous trips. Daughter met me at Reading as planned. It was our birthday on Sunday so my sons joined us for a barbecue. Except the weather turned very cold [even a smat... Read more
All my bags are packed
Friday, April 09, 2021      12 comments

Well when I say packed, I mean there's stuff in them.  Not 'packed' in the sense of full up.  In fact there's nothing in my backpack atm.  I'll put my tablet and camera in tomorrow, along with a book to read, and my face shield for on the train.... Read more
Nascot Lawn
Thursday, April 08, 2021      8 comments

Do any of you remember when we were doing the fund raising for Nascot Lawn back 'home'?  We were hard at it for the best part of two years.  We did all sorts of things including a number of events in Elaine's garden which I did the catering for.... Read more
Obesity Explained?
Wednesday, April 07, 2021      12 comments

Among the bargains I picked up at the weekend were some noodles [15 pence], and some stir fry veg [12 pence].  Each pack said 'serves two' and was meant to be part of a three for two meal deal.  i.e you'd get a sauce to go with them.  Obviously ... Read more
April Goals
Tuesday, April 06, 2021      10 comments

That's Easter done then.  Time I guess to consider my 'April Goals'.  OK let's keep it real.  My main focus this month is my trip 'home'.  I'm so looking forward to seeing Family and Friends.  Less than a week now.  I am so excited.  I'm trying ... Read more
Easter Scales
Monday, April 05, 2021      9 comments

The scales told me this morning I weighed 139.2 which was very disappointing given they reckoned I was 137.8 on Thursday.  I figure they have a faulty logic which went along the lines of; Easter = Chocolate = Weight Gain.  Excuse me!  I h... Read more
Merry Easter
Sunday, April 04, 2021      7 comments

Oh come on.  Why are we wished a 'Merry C' but only a Happy Easter?   There's nothing wrong with 'Happy'.  Far from it.  But Merry suggests something more than 'happy' doncha think?  Granted, a Crucifixion isn't a merry event - but it ain't happ... Read more
Saturday Shopping
Saturday, April 03, 2021      9 comments

Back in the mists of time, when Fashionista ruled the roost, Saturday Shopping used to mean clothes.  Lots of loverly, loverly new clothes.  These days I don't buy new clothes.  I've gone all Green and Environmental.  Let's face it - I probably ... Read more
A Good Friday
Friday, April 02, 2021      9 comments

I've been doing some more sorting today so The Countess de Clutter is in a good mood.  And I did sweep and mop the floors although not the stairs.  Which was a bit stupid as when I do them, I'll have to redo the area around the bottom of them.  ... Read more
Fooled yer
Thursday, April 01, 2021      7 comments

I had intended today to further test out the back brace/belt thingy by wearing it whilst sweeping and mopping the floors, stairs etc.  First though there was the overnight action from Miami to watch.  Ready to set to this afternoon, I figured I ... Read more
Marching On
Wednesday, March 31, 2021      9 comments

I can't believe it's not butter.  No, hang on, that's not what I meant to write.  I can't believe we're 1/4 of the way through the year already is what I meant to say.  All of it still in lock down of course.  My two 'main' goals for March were ... Read more

It was a beautiful sunny day here in The Wetlands today.  So much so I was able to go out for my walk with no coat or jacket - first time this year.  Having done an hour long walk yesterday, I just did 30 minutes today because I don't want to ov... Read more
It Arrived
Monday, March 29, 2021      9 comments

The self heating back brace arrived today.  More like a belt really.  As you will no doubt guess, I was very keen to try it out.  On the other hand, with the clocks having gone forward I quite fancied being able to have an early evening walk so ... Read more
My name's Tiz and I'm an addict
Sunday, March 28, 2021      12 comments

That's how you're meant to start isn't it?  How you 'introduce' yourself.  Thing is, I was in denial and didn't recognise my addiction until today.  I was slurping my morning tea and wondering how come I'd got up so late [took two cups for me to... Read more
Cooking by Candlelight
Saturday, March 27, 2021      13 comments

I can't remember a time when I didn't observe Earth Hour, I've been doing it so long.  Since 2007 basically when it started.  As you can no doubt imagine, it was second nature to me this evening to switch everything off.  Having lit a couple of ... Read more
