The Other, Other Shoe

Hello, dear reader!

It wasn’t Covid!

No, the nasty little bug I mentioned last week, the one that laid out both myself and my quite frankly amazing wife, Tina was, it turned out, just that. A bug.

We tested ourselves on Friday, prior to making a decision as to whether to attend the meal we were supposed to be going to or not, and received the all clear

This meant that the shindig, a date at a local(ish) Thai restaurant with some of the people from Tina’s Friday morning therapy group, could go ahead as planned, and I for one was very glad it could.

Fall Sick

Hello, dear reader!

Now this really will be a short one.

The weather has turned. There’s a chill in the air, and the rain it raineth on pretty much everything that dares venture outside. In short, it’s autumnal out there, and, as might seem fitting, with the bad weather has come the dreaded lurgy.

A Smoggy Blog

Hello, dear reader!

So, My husband thought it would be good for me if I chatted to you all this week, I agreed ….. So here goes.

Today is a non-day …. A recovery day…. A catch-up-on-energy type day, simply because the last 5 days have been particularly busy both physically and mentally.

On Form

Hello, dear reader!

It’s over. It’s done. It’s finally done.

Yes, after almost a week of writing, rewriting, editing, and re-editing the most important document of both mine, and most definitely Tina (my perpetually perfect wife)’s lives.

And, really, it doesn’t have all that much to do with me, either.

The New Regime

Hello, dear reader!.....

So, you may remember that, around five weeks ago, I made a commitment to try something designed to help me lose some of the middle-age spread, which is spreading a bit too far and a bit too fast.

Emphasis on the last word.

Because, you see, I’ve been giving intermittent fasting a good go, and today, I’d like to share how that has been going.

Book Clubbed

Hello, dear reader!.....

After the no doubt extremely welcome ‘guest’ post by my sainted Mrs, Tina, last week, I’m afraid you are, once more, stuck with the plodding thoughts of your friendly neighbourhood seated person.

But never mind, eh?

Now, the last week or so has carried less import for me than Tina’s. It’s been one of those where I’ve not really done a whole lot at all, in fact, and it's one of the things I haven’t done that I want to pour forth on today.

Confused? You will be!

It's Not Where You Start, It's Where You Finish

Hello, dear reader!.....

Not sure whether you are lucky or not …. But I promised my husband that I would chat to you today, and I always try to make good of my promises.

As it happens, I do have some news to share. So here goes ………….

I often think in song, so today is no exception, the perfect song for today would be

‘It's not where you start, it's where you finish ‘
