Yesterday evening I tried to get a few hours shut eye because I wanted to watch three matches from the Oz Open in the wee small hours. I didn't manage to get much sleep but I got up again around 2.00 a.m and sat myself down at my computer in th... Read more
Just get up and MOVE Tiz
Tuesday, January 26, 2016      2 comments

Well now, what am I going to do to get myself moving again? I can hear the chorus as you all holler, "well doh Tiz, just get up and MOVE". Fair enough. But what am I going to do when I just get up and move? How often am I going to just get u... Read more
A gain again
Monday, January 25, 2016      5 comments

Weigh in day today. Stepped on the scales to find I've re-gained 1lb 10 oz this past week. Was I disappointed? Natch. Was I surprised? Not really. I was shocked at how much I've regained but I knew I hadn't had a 'good' week. I knew I had... Read more
The 'Chippy'
Sunday, January 24, 2016      6 comments

A month or two ago, a new fish and chip shop opened at the bottom of my road. I haven't tried it. In fact, until today I hadn't been anywhere near it. My worker friend tried it when he last visited but I declined. This evening I realised I n... Read more
A mother's dilemma
Saturday, January 23, 2016      7 comments

I am facing a huge financial problem. Which brings with it a moral or 'parental' dilemma. Forgive me, I don't want to go into the details here. But is there a point as a parent, when it is OK to put our own needs or desires first? Or at leas... Read more

Today my daughter completed her final exams in her Neurobiology Degree course. Earlier she rang me to say she'd also got the first of her results back and she'd got a first in her translation of science into medicine, course work. Naturally I ... Read more
Where there's a will
Thursday, January 21, 2016      2 comments

I blogged recently about aiming to look/be 'ten years younger/healthier' and in particular how during week one I was going to work on my sleep pattern. Possibly not the best timing because, I've found another site to stream the tennis. Which m... Read more

21 for 21

Just hours now until we celebrate my eldest boy's 21st. He remains disinterested. He was clear he didn't want to 'go out'. In fact, he didn't want a 'fuss' made at all. He didn't want any presents, and he'd really rather just have a normal d... Read more
Birthday Cakes
Saturday, January 16, 2016      6 comments

When my children were small, I'd make their birthday cakes. No problem. Oh but the decorating of them. I'd try and keep it simple but even so, I just couldn't do it. I'd be in tears of frustration. One year, on my daughter's fifth or sixth b... Read more
My not so tiddly, tiddly peeps
Friday, January 15, 2016      4 comments

On Monday, we will celebrate my eldest son's 21st birthday. I'm struggling to get my head around that. When they were mere toddlers, I started to sometimes call my children 'my tiddly peeps'. Tiddly = small. Peeps = a slang word for Pe... Read more
Truly Madly Deeply
Thursday, January 14, 2016      6 comments

Two weeks in and already I'm beginning to truly madly deeply think, that I'm not all that keen on 2016. My not so tiddly, tiddly peeps, are truly, madly, deeply saddened. First Bowie who they all loved, now 'Snape' as they think of him. Both ... Read more
Sleep - perchance to dream
Wednesday, January 13, 2016      4 comments

10 years younger/healthier I said. By 20th March I said. Well it's not going to happen on it's own is it. Is it? No, almost certainly not. So I figured I'd best you know, actually make some plans, set some goals, and all that jazz. A... Read more

Deep Breath
Sunday, January 10, 2016      6 comments

I said I'd try and organise my 'start pictures' today for the '10 years younger [healthier] project because my daughter was due to visit and I knew she'd take the pictures for me. She did indeed visit but we were so busy chatting that I forgot ... Read more
