By the power of TizWitchery, let me transport you back in time to Thursday 20th August when I set off on my holiday back 'home'.  You may recall I was kicking my heels until it was time to set off.  Naturally I left with plenty of time because I... Read more

Elaine and her dogs left this afternoon.  Oddly I am sort of missing them but at the same time glad of having some 'alone time'.  Or I would be except I helped Elaine get her stuff in the van, including walking the dogs over the road and settlin... Read more

Back in Sparkland as you can see, but also back at Base Camp.  Overall I had a good time seeing family and friends but the last few days have been very frustrating.  In addition I have unexpected guests - Elaine and her dogs.  Actually, not enti... Read more

I have been numbering the days since lockdown was imposed.  Although there are still some restrictions, today is the last day I shall number.  Because today is the day when my personal semi isolation is coming to an end.  Today is the day I'm tr... Read more

I've been keeping myself busy today with more chores around the house.  Sorted out the recycling - I'll put it out before I go.  Swept and mopped the floors.  Cleaned the microwave and the cooker.  Made a pasta style sauce with the tomatoes, oni... Read more

Not long now until I go off on my holiday back home.  It's six months today since I was last there.  Six months since I've seen any of my loved ones.  Other than daughter of course who snuck up here late June.  Yeah I know it was breaking the 'r... Read more
Day 156 - It's just a flesh wound
Sunday, August 16, 2020      3 comments

I bought myself a sharp knife recently.  It wasn't quite the top notch chef's knife that I am hankering after [especially after daughter bought youngest son such an amazing set for C word time], but it is pretty good.  None of my decent knives m... Read more

Elaine wants to buy a combination microwave.  She'd seen one in the Argos catalogue that she liked, but couldn't get through to them on the 'phone to place the order.  She doesn't have a computer.  Well, actually she does, but as yet doesn't kno... Read more

I have been keeping a very careful record of what I eat/drink, when I go to sleep/wake up, what exercise I do or don't, how many steps I take, when I go to the loo blah blah blah.  All in the Piling on the Pounds Periodical.  From a nutritional ... Read more

I can't remember if I've mentioned previously that Ethina a few doors along, is a hairdresser.  She had a salon which she rented from one of her brothers.  Of course during lockdown she couldn't work but was still paying him the rent.  Then she ... Read more

Half of England have been whinging about the heat today.  Mostly the southern half obvs.  Not me.  Then again I'm not in England.  It's been around 83f here today which I am fine with.  I love the sun and don't find that particularly hot tbh.  M... Read more

If all goes to plan I shall be travelling 'home' on Thursday 20th August.  I say if all goes to plan because I still haven't been able to get my tickets sorted out.  I've tried the website numerous times, I've tried 'phoning, I've tried emailing... Read more
Day 140 - Fail to Succeed
Monday, August 10, 2020      9 comments

Weigh in.  Gained 2lbs 2oz.  What the hell do I have to do to actually lose weight?  Or at least not gain yet more?  I've numbered this day 140 as I've been counting since 'Lockdown' became official in the UK .  In actual fact though, this semi ... Read more
