Last week I finally made it up north to see my family who live in Derby. Bearing in mind that I grew up there, I generally hate Derby as a place. I can appreciate we have the peak district, but I could never understand why we lived so far away from the beach and didn't … Continue reading Family time
A friend recently managed to break her leg in not one, but two places at a local charity OCR (obstacle course race). Ironically it was named 'Mission Unbreakable'. Now, in the films 'Mission Impossible', it was deemed an impossible mission, yet Tom Cruise was the hero in the film for completing the mission. So if … Continue reading 19 things to do with a leg that’s broken in two places….
As one of my 'things' to do one day is be an actress, or be in some sort of performance or pantomime, I jumped at the chance when I saw an advert in our local town magazine advertising the upcoming 'Elf musical' at the Landmark theatre, and did anyone want to be part of it? … Continue reading Elf (the musical)
So I decided for November I would detox, start exercising again and feel GOOD for December. (And then ''ruin'' it all again by drinking, partying and eating excessively when December came) but at least I'd feel good for a month before. I often do this is November - there's not that much going on (birthdays/events … Continue reading New month, new me (or not…..)
My sister and two kids (my niece and nephew) have been down visiting for half term this week. For those of you who don't know, I am NOT a child person. They're OK.... my niece is 7 and fine actually (most of the time). My nephew is a three year old toddler, or ''three-nager'' as … Continue reading Relaxation starter pack….
Hot, and with minimal faff if I'm honest. I'm not a 'fancy' coffee person. In fact, I'm not 100% sure I really like the taste of coffee (but damn, do I love the smell!). I enjoy the effects of drinking coffee and I like the fact that I feel like I'm acting like a 'grown … Continue reading How do you like your coffee in the morning?
C's pulled a muscle in his back at the moment and on top of that we've both had a cold this week. (No, not covid, or at least three lateral flow tests have told us it isn't covid). Still felt like crap though. Anyway, C's worst off than me - to add insult to injury … Continue reading Dog Therapy
I say 'the first run'. It should actually read 'the first run for about 6 months'. Or 'the first run I've been on in ages'. Anyway, my point is; that I went on a run yesterday for the first time since April and I'm feeling pretty good. It was only a very short run. That … Continue reading The first run….
C’s invented (or has he?) something that he calls ‘slow dishes’. Basically, we both hate doing the dishes so when they inevitably build up on the side of the kitchen, when it’s his turn he simply fills the sink with hot water and washing up liquid and places them all in it. Then he’ll wander … Continue reading Slow dishes
I say this jokingly (and I’m not sure if Mercury in Uranus would be a good thing or a bad thing), but I was speaking to my younger cousin the other day – whose boyfriend has just broken up with her – and she told me Mercury was in retrograde, or Uranus, or Neptune had … Continue reading Is Mercury in Uranus?
