I blogged last Wednesday about gaining weight again [It's not my fault]. As ever the support and encouragement I received was wonderful. Two Sparkers also offered advice. The first, WLTEACH777 suggested looking at portion control. Now I hav... Read more

Or step out of my way. I tend to be pretty easy going. I try to see [and understand] both sides of an argument. Sometimes if someone is rude or unfair to me I'll let it pass because I know other stuff is going on. I am not religious but t... Read more

Lots of planning going on this past week. Daughter and youngest son very keen to support my efforts and do whatever they could to help. But now it looks like the event may not take place unless I can find an alternative venue at extremely shor... Read more
Paying Attention
Thursday, May 10, 2018      3 comments

When people are talking to me, I try to pay attention. What they say is important but often, so is what they don't say. I pay attention to their facial expressions, their body language, and the various cues they are giving. I think we all do ... Read more

Since the Wedding of The Century, I have regained weight. So I've been thinking about why. It is possible to have a healthy diet without spending a fortune. How many times have you read that? To be fair, it's true - it is possible. But ... Read more

I haven't shared a picture of The Tree with you for a while. So here it is today. To put it in context, here is a picture of The Tree I took a... Read more

Daughter and I went out for coffee this morning. It was a beautiful day so we got a take away coffee and sat in the church garden. A lovely oasis in the middle of town. I've barely seen her since the 'Wedding of The Century'. She and my son ... Read more

We had another meeting of the Birthday Brunch Bunch last week. I was going to cry off due to lack of funds but was told in no uncertain terms that wasn't acceptable. On the day I went to the get together and announced honestly I would just ord... Read more

As the event will be held in Elaine's garden, she will be The Hostess. Fear not though my sparkly friends, I shall be The Queen Bee buzzing my bizzy bizzy way around, directing operations and being generally bossy. Or in other words, I shall b... Read more

An old and not particularly funny joke that local activists frequently 'share'. Even less funny just now. Today was polling day for many Council Elections and some Mayoral Elections. More than 4,000 people will have been elected today. Local... Read more

128 days make! I haven't done a supermarket shop since Christmas Eve. I did an internet grocery shop late February as I was ordering loads of tinned cat food which I couldn't have carried home so I stocked up on store cupboard things plus ... Read more

That is seemingly closed to me. I managed to stream about ten minutes of the tennis today. Other than that it was not available. It wasn't a close match anyway but I still would have enjoyed watching it. If only to gauge future prospec... Read more

All the light bulbs in the kitchen have blown. Of course they are 'special' light bulbs and I can't find anywhere locally that stocks them any more. Not that it matters - I don't have the money to buy them even if I could find a stockist. One... Read more

I'm starting to get a 'shape' now of how this event will be. Which is just as well given I'm organising it! Broadly speaking, a kind of 'fete' affair in the afternoon - free entry. Hopefully with various interesting stalls. £5 per stall hold... Read more
