Fame at last but I'm still here anyway

Well not that it matters. Unless you happened to notice I wasn't here. But anyway, I was - in spirit at least. And I've stuck to eating healthily. And trying to move, move move. I'm standing in a local bye election. Normally such thing... Read more

And now I can't find it. I've looked behind the settee. I've checked through the laundry. I've searched in the bathroom. Hunted in the sitting room. Sought for it in the dining room. Explored in the garden. I even peeked in the fridge - ... Read more

Well actually, I am. And have been since I was knee high to a grasshopper. Sadly, I can't get or afford tickets to their matches any more. And tonight's match wasn't on TV. Nor could I get it on live streaming. So, I had to follow it on a M... Read more

Earlier this week, I placed one of my mega, supermarket internet shops. Lots of cat food, potatoes, washing powder, cans, and so on. All the heavy stuff it's hard to carry back weekly. Plus of course fresh fruit and veg for the next few days.... Read more

Thanks to those of you who responded on my last blog [Rocktober - the month that keeps on giving]. I have a visitor at the moment so am limited as to how much 'sparking' I can do. I will catch up with people personally later in the week though... Read more

Had my follow up appointment on Friday. The news is even better than the fact the lump is benign. Seemingly, it as a Warthin lump, which hardly ever turns cancerous. So, if I don't want to have surgery, I don't have to. They will of course k... Read more

THE Cheesecake
Sunday, October 14, 2012      7 comments

One way and another this past week, I've been avoiding the temptations of cheesecake. Until this weekend. There it sat, in my fridge. THE slice of cheesecake. Calling me. "Tiz, Tiz, Tiz, come eat me" it called. "No" said I, "I am a sparke... Read more

OK, I'm going to 'fess up now and get it over with. A friend came to visit me yesterday, and after my fantastic news on Thursday, he wanted to celebrate with me. Well, honest, it would have been rude not to wouldn't it? So obviously you're th... Read more
