    2021 in a nutshell: Reaching goals then (sugar) crashing

    Time flies when you’re having fun, or when you get older, or just in general really. It’s time for another year in review already and I’m incredulous, just like I am every year. So, last year I did a review of 2020 and stated I was only going to make goals for 2021 that I…

  • Everything is awesome!

    Everything is awesome!

    It’s serendipitous that my operation was when it was so that my recovery was during the last two months of a really crappy year. I’m one of those people that likes thinking of new years as new beginnings in a way, and this year is just so much more than that. Because my recovery has…

  • Welcome 2018! (Also, 9 weeks post op!)

    Welcome 2018! (Also, 9 weeks post op!)

    I think I can safely say all my goals for 2017 went straight out the window the moment I was diagnosed with cancer. That I finished the year cancer free and feeling better than I have in years is more than a great ending to a really crappy year. So what do I want to…

  • An active year!

    An active year!

    I’ve learned to never worry too much if plans (or I) fall apart. Monday night, in the last hours of freedom before returning to work Tuesday, I literally fell. Slipped on the stairs at home and down I went! Thankfully I’m fine, I managed to get up with a couple of swollen bits and some…

  • A New Year!

    A New Year!

    That’s going to be my 2017 in a nutshell. I’m taking it a little bit at a time to manage my goals. I’ve mapped out January and February in terms of exercise: Insanity Max:30 (thanks to Hubby for the Christmas gift!) should take care of most of my exercise (and help me get into my…

  • Rain Rain Go Away

    It has been raining nonstop where ever I am since Friday! I don’t mind rain, in fact I quite like it, but I think I’ve had enough! Especially since yesterday we had a month’s worth of rainfall (as my boss told everyone 5 times!!). I’m ready for some sun. Tomorrow I am going out with…

  • Put Some New Shoes On

    I got my new running shoes today! Yay! Now I’m excited about running (I’m sure that won’t last at ALL) but disappointed as I won’t be able to do it tonight. I’m getting my hair done tonight and it’s in dire need of being done, so I’ll have to wait until tomorrow. 🙁

  • Life?

    Things have been little more than hectic lately. My husband’s dad’s mum passed away right before we went on holiday for a week. We went to Manchester, saw the Foos, did a bit of shopping. I (finally) got my citizenship application sorted and sent (and has now been paid for and I received the acknowledgement…

    I want this.
