Sunshine Superman

Waaaaaay back when, on a very grey damp February morning, I woke up to find that Jaydubblah of Just Jotting Along had been very kind and awarded me a Sunshine Award with the proviso that I would blog more...


Well more is subject to personal view I suppose, so this is now my more.

Anyway.. I was delighted.  The day was grey, I was feeling a bit despondent, and the thought of a Sunshine award was perfectly lovely. So thank you very much Janet, for the thought and for cheering me up that day.

There are rules attached to the Sunshine Award apparently...although they are pretty simple:
  •  Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
  • Pass the award onto as other bloggers -  as many as you think deserve it.
  • Link the nominees within your post.
  • Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
  • Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

So now it is my turn and so I am passing this along to:

Whimsical Wife
The Barefoot Kitchen Witch
Meemalee's Kitchen
with Knife and Fork

Now I hope they won't think this too twee... but the thought is there. They - all of them - DO bring a bit of sunshine into my life, and I hope they take this award in the spirit it is given .  Mwaah.

Catch up time...

So that's April Fools Day over and done with. 

I was going to report on my progress on Thursday but then I saw the date and knew you would think I was joking..

So let's see...


Novels are static.  Nil movement. Not being entered for Strictly Come Dancing this year. 

This blog likewise. Oops. But at least I'm remedying that a bit today.

Foodie blog however has actually taken on quite a nice shape.   Look  Nice even though I do say so myself.
And I've added another wee mini blog on Posterous for the bits that just take my fancy but don't merit a full write up. Here it is... It's part of the Greedy Piglet family. 

Move more:

Well I did have the first flamenco lesson and loved it. But as I said my lovely teacher Sandra was away on tour until March, and then managed to badly hurt her foot so she is still not up to teaching at the moment. So that has pretty much died a death at the moment.  Maybe later in the year. 

I can't get to grips with the idea of going to the gym instead, I went and looked around one local council run one (to take advantage of my Over 55 special rate) but to be honest it just wasn't as nice as it could be.  Needs more thinking about I reckon.

Eat better:

Now this has been more successful.  My Slimming World diet is suiting me admirably, and I have now lost the grand total of 1stone 7lb from my heaviest.  It is really starting to notice. Another half a stone and I get to buy new clothes :)

So my resolutions for Quarter 2 of the Improvement Year?

  • Carry on blogging. No matter where or how, get some things in writing.
    Try if at all possible to fit some creative writing in. It is FUN . It is good for a person to have fun.
  • Carry on losing weight.  My joints are really thanking me for it, and even my balance is improving.  Long long way to go but each little pound is a pound in the right direction.
  • Find a way somehow or other to get some movement in.
