I've been putting this one off. My partner's mother died last week. It's crap, and there's not much to be said beyond it's very sad. We're chasing out tails a bit trying to get all the things done that need to be done (normal work and... Read more

My partner and I were invited to our friends wedding ages ago. Suddenly this wedding is tomorrow. To quote Helen (another friend - I know, more than one! Who'd thunk it..) "good grief, you're doing what normal people do". Yep, we have to in... Read more

I had to google NSV, having come across it in various blogs and comments. Non scale victory! Having bounced around the same pound for almost a week it's a useful concept. I might not have had the same success thus far this week with th... Read more

I'm having a pretty poor start to the day. The snuffles I had yesterday have become a head cold. On top of that my morning began with our pup hurling rainbows on the bed (swift evasive action meant only the bed, and not my head....). The pup is ... Read more

So my brother in law (I'm not married, but it's the easy definition) came to stay. He's having a rough time at home, so escapes to ours. He's a good guy, he's welcome to come when he needs, but it's feeling like it's more often than not at the m... Read more

The scales are down again today :) Yesterday was a fast day, so that's to be hoped for! And is good considering Sunday's free reign on food and drink very lucky. I'm aiming on low carb, low(ish) cal for today, then fast again. Sticking to an eve... Read more
