Still here!

Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned; it has been 11-weeks since my last confession….

But, oh! what an 11-weeks it has been!

My last post on here was 21st March; in which I was suffering a mild setback from “doing a lot”.  To say that my last bout of “doing a lot” will knock my previous record out the water will be an understatement… Continue reading

Snapshots of my Gibraltar Holiday

Nearly a week after I left, I am finally writing up about my holiday!  This last week back has been a bit of a whirlwind with unpacking (finally finished that this morning), enjoying the bank holiday and catching up on work for my clients, which was not nearly as bad thanks to the wonderful Rosie at Wise Owl Admin covering one of my clients whilst I was away.

All Good

Work has been busy which has meant that there is more money coming in but there has been less time for doing things on the computer that are no-work related as I get to the end of the working day and need to switch off both literally and figuratively. Continue reading

Absent Note

I’ve been trying to write loads of meaningful, insightful, highly intelligent posts lately but they have all failed due to lack of energy and brain-fuge.

However, I thought I’d better pop by and do more than read my feed: explain why I’ve been away for a while.  Firstly, work has picked up since the new year and I’ve been busy, busy, busy with phone calls around the world and stuff like that.  Secondly, and perhaps not unrelated to the first, Continue reading

Keeping my promises

With just over a week left of January, I have to say I am feeling pretty good about things.

I have been keeping my ‘new year promises’ to myself so far….

1. I have instigated the ‘jar of good stuff’ promise, utilising a bit of potential “tat” I saved from the bin; a Jubilee special edition Lyle’s golden syrup tin which I was SURE I could find a use for… and I did.  I think the wording on this is quite appropriate for its new task.20130122-212603.jpg

2. I am heading off today on the first of my ‘do exciting/fun things’ trips.  A few days in Bath (or ‘the Bath’ as it was in the last book I read) with a good friend, seeing Les Mis and possibly heading to the Baths… If the weather could provide a sprinkling of settled snow shortly before we take a dip in the rooftop pool, that would be great.

3.  I am still doing well with Weight Watchers; I did a cheeky mid-week weigh to help bolster my resolve to eat ‘wisely and not too well’ during my time away and I’ve lost another pound (lb).  This takes me below a certain figure which I haven’t been below for a while, which makes me happy.

Now I must get back to work and finish packing before catching a train up to ‘the Bath’.
