Packing for our summer holiday

I don't know what possessed me but w... Read more
And the band played on
Today was hot, Sparkies, hot and mostly still. Searing in the sun, where I sat with my niece eating a Mille Fieulle, her birthday treat for me. Still hot while I watered the wildflower meadow I have just sown. Hot when the brass band playing Chr... Read more
I am doing the fast diet and after breakfast I decided to make today a fast day. So my fast day is 24 hours from 11 til 11 tomorrow morning. Not starving, just having 500 calories in those 24 hours. I find it fun to do this, at least when I have... Read more

How is that working for me?
It's a powerful question, isn't it? I sometimes ask it of others who tell me they are doing something they're not happy about.
Well, Sparkies, i've been awake since just before 3am and it,s all my own fault.
Yesterday was a big day at ... Read more
Upping the exercise
And have hurt my foot. I don't recall doing it, but for the last nearly week my left foot has been gypping me. I got DH to look at it tonight, and he says it is all bruised along one side.
I guess if the bruising is visible, it is close to be... Read more
Plan B. Report on fasting day

Hey there Sparkers
