Well, so far so good. Not only did I go out this morning, I took a longer route, partly because I knew I'd be blogging about it. So that gave me the wee push I needed to try it out, see how long it was, and how long it took me. And here it is... Read more

However, I did do 40 mins on the stationary bike. Jacques has had a stinking cold for most of the week, and I felt a tickle this morning when I woke up. It's also even colder than yesterday. It's not the cold that's the problem, but the win... Read more

The snow is forecast for later in the day, so I decided to make an effort and go out. I wasn't disappointed, even if at times I was very cold. My hands, even with gloves, were what I felt the most. Tomorrow, or whenever, it'll be ski gloves, and... Read more

As I was walking yesterday, I thought that sharing my walks here, on a blog, might be a way to make myself more accountable, and to be consistent. Just the thought helped, because I made sure I went out today, despite the biting cold wind, altho... Read more

This is not one of my usual blogs, where I find amusing pictures to demonstrate the points I am trying to make. I will try very hard not to make it a pity party either, as things have been quite difficult over the last wee while and don’t seem t... Read more

I had intended to start a "series" back in November, and then the Paris attacks happened, and that sort of flummoxed me. I was left bewildered and ... Read more

How many of us stop and start over and over again? I'm sure I'm not the only one. I prefer the above image, to some of the others I found, like this ... Read more

As some of you know, I spent a lot of time in hospital last year, leaving my house empty. As I live in the country, this meant that rodents got in, and caused all sorts of electrical damage. ... Read more

Warning, some pretty horrid mental images to follow, not for the faint hearted. As some of you may know, I had a carcinoma removed from not quite the end of my nose just before christmas. I was not a pretty sight, I can tell you! Then on th... Read more

It is mother's day in the US, but not in all the rest of the world. Jacques' mother fell the day after mother's day in France last year. She died of he injuries, some 20 or so days later, and this is a translation of what I wrote and said at her... Read more
