    It’s An Annual Pattern!

    Morning lovelies, January always seems to be the annual time when I consider getting fitter, but I have always found an excuse to waver! Yesterday I showed my 2016 new year commitment to health and exercise by not being fazed by pouring rain when it came to the lunchtime walk. This was the first time the weather had really tested my …

    These Boots Were Made For Walking!

    Morning Lovelies, I needed this weekend to come! Philosophy for children training yesterday was very interesting, but it involved a lot of sitting, a lot of listening and a lot of brain aching!

    I Wish There Were No M3 Roadworks

    Morning Lovelies, My wish is that the M3 had no road works! We live off Junction 4A of the M3, but we travel up and down the motorway all the time. We used to live in the Hounslow/Twickenham area, so the musical society and dancing/performing group my family are involved in are both in that area. …

    Whatever next?

    Morning Lovelies, What a wet Saturday it is! Yesterday was health check day. It wasn’t planned that way, but it so happened my dermatologist appointment for my recently diagnosed eczema and the Dr’s appointment for my affectionately named ‘fatty pads’ coincided on the same day. The eczema clinic was positive. My back was unrecognisable to the photo in …

    National Hat Day

    Morning Lovelies, Today January 15th is National Hat Day. Did you know that? There are so many different types of hats and sometimes it is so hard to choose a style, colour and material that suits. I love trying on hats but never know what suits or looks silly on me! In the past hats were an …

    I Wish To Not Wear Glasses!

    Morning Lovelies, I  wish that I didn’t have to wear glasses. I have only had to wear glasses as I have got older, but what a palaver and hassle it is! As you get older and your brain needs all the help it can get to just remember the every day little things, old age …

    Start of a New Year!

    Morning Lovelies, After our New Years Eve Murder Mystery, a gentle day was required yesterday. I managed my New Year resolution exercises, drank lots of water and visited the smallest room in the house more frequently than usual! I think that signals day one success. My husband set off on his bike for an energetic 10 mile ride, …
