Sorry about the delay but have not been good the last few days so here it goes.
It was always our intention to take it easy on Thursday because our friends where coming to stay with us for a couple of nights and I wanted to make sure I wasn't too tired for their arrival. The rain from the previous afternoon and night had continued into Thursday morning but was showing the first signs of clearing with the occasinal break in the cloud.
Hubby suggested that we…

After yesterday's episode of total exhaustion I decided to have a lie-in today in the hope of the spoon fairy paying me a return visit, alas she didn't, too busy elsewhere, maybe once a week is all you can expect. It was well after 11.00am when I finally came downstairs to be greeted by a beaming hubby who had already been out on a 3 hour walk to some secluded cove called " Mouthmill Cove".

Dawned a bright and sunny day, well it did according to hubby, it was still lovely when I arose from my deep slumber and got myself ready. My day was already planned out for me if I thought I would be up to it. " Nothing too strenuous today, honest. " hubby informed me. "A short drive down to Clovelly Court Gardens and Church and then down to the visitor's centre to catch the Landrover Service down to the harbour." Well…

I awoke on Monday morning feeling surprisingly refreshed. At some time during the night I had been visited by the " Spoon Fairy " who replenished my cuttlery sevice with tea, soup and dessert spoons - wonderful, but how long would it last?
" Not too much today, please I want to keep some spoons in reserve "
" No probs, " hubby replied, " We'll visit Eldern Point and Hartland Point, they've both got car parks very…

Hubby up early, I think someone forgot to tell him he's supposed to be on holiday. He brought my tablets and breakfast in bed and off he went at 7.30 am for a walk down into Clovelly to check out the route. I was awoken at 8.30am with a message and photo of Clovelly Harbour " just arrived, great views but very steep, no one about, streets clear of tourists great for taking photos " he does love to take photos bless him.
I eventually got downstairs at 11.00am to be greeted by my… Continue

We had to vacate the cottage by 10am on Saturday morning, which left us with plenty of time to have a relaxed journey back home staying off at one or two places on route. The first place we visited was the small town of Croyde with it's large sandy beach and sand dunes, very popular with young families and surfers. We spent a good hour here walking down to the sea's edge to have a closer look at the surfers…

Another bloggy friend of mine has encouraged me to be honest with my feelings. She recently wrote a letter to her church and it was received warmly. Which reminded me that I have written 2 letters to my church asking for help to get the word out for Rescue here, and I haven't received even an acknowledgment email from them. I haven't even gotten a "Heather, I think that's a great idea, lets sit down and talk about it." I was first attracted to this church because of its laid back atmosphere and… Continue

When I was young, I was convinced that differences in gender were the result of social conditioning.
I knew it.
Of course this theory was part of an ongoing rant and search for equity. I was not afraid of the word feminist, I looked it up and it did not mandate I stop shaving, grab a rainbow VW van and have a lesbian fling.
My first year at University, I took a…

There seems to be a number of contributing factors to the obesity epidemic our nation is facing. Some of these include excessive caloric intake, decreased physical activity and cultural influences. Now some researchers are investigating whether sleep deprivation may contribute to obesity.
Research presented at the International AC21 Research Festival points out that short sleep duration may lead to obesity through an increase of appetite via hormonal changes caused by the sleep… Continue

In all honesty, I did not think I would ever see this happening. A always refused to eat fruits let along vegetables. After he got his teeth fixed he is more adventurous with his food. Nowadays you can see his walking around the house with an apple...and if you look around you will find half apples all over the house!!
He looks so big!! I… Continue

TGIF! Check out the link from The Girlz Korner, about getting your sexy back with lingerie. As a girl that tends to look at lingerie with a practical eye (it's expensive, my butt will be hanging out the back, it'll ride up, when I'm sleeping, I'll be cold, and so on), this read has me reconsidering!… Continue
