I know a lot of people aren’t happy with themselves when they’re younger and I was no exception. There was always something wrong when I looked in the mirror: too fat, too many spots, hair wrong, too many bulges in the wrong places, etc. As I’ve got older, I give less of a toss about… Read More Age and Self Confidence
I really really hate being unwell. I especially hate it when other people who are unwell still insist on coming into work. Worse is when they come into work coughing and sneezing without covering their mouths. My immune system sometimes struggles and last week it was under a bit of a heavy load anyway as… Read More Achoo!
Just as I got to thinking that Tinks was going to have to stay here and we get another two enquiries about her. It’s may fault – I said that I thought she’d have to stay here out loud so the universe decided to test my resolve. Some two weeks after the enquiries were… Read More The Settling (Part 12)
Maggie has been renamed back to Tinks now. I’m coming to terms with the realisation that we probably won’t be able to find her another home and that she’s going to have to stay with me. Bearing that in mind, she’s now spending more time out of her room as her and Cara seem to… Read More The Settling (Part 11)
I’ve always loved watching a good drama on TV. Until lately. Don’t get me wrong – there are plenty of good dramas on TV but nowadays it seems that the writers have a tendency towards melodrama. What’s wrong with good human interest and interaction? It seems that every “new” series that I watch is increasingly… Read More TV and Chaos
After my post the other week about needing to get my bum into gear (“To Do” Lists), the clutch became firmly engaged and I lately I’ve really started to annoy myself. I’ve lost the ability to sit still and chill out, which isn’t necessarily a good thing, and it always seems to happen around this… Read More Spring/Summer Cleaning
It’s a subject that has a lot of coverage but it really saddens (and angers) me. I saw a repost on Facebook today by a good friend of mine of an item from another site about a celebrity apparently “beating up” a fan and then “forcing” him to pose for a picture. The caption ended… Read More Fake News
Yay – I found myself a new personal trainer! After the whole debacle when I got dumped by my last trainer I decided to try and go it alone. I took out a 3 month special price membership with a gym that I’d been with before and decided to go and work out 2-3 times… Read More Trainer Ahoy!
There’s much made on the news about food waste on the news lately. I was watching an item on the news recently about this very subject and a reporter was on the premises of a food farm. The farmer was articulate, if a little garrulous (a trait I myself possess!) and was going through how… Read More Food Waste and Beauty – Poles Apart?
We’re having record breaking temperatures again this Summer. Other than the newscasters’ reminiscing about how they normally have to wear 2-3 layers of clothing when they’ve previously been on site at the Houses of Parliament when covering “important” news stories (don’t get me started on that one!) nobody is mentioning the Elephant in the room:… Read More Weather News
