Weather Storm*

Walk this gorgeous boy this morning. It’s very cold: my hands are cold inside my thermal gloves. On the plus side it’s a bright, sunny day:

Then sit with him in his house. We have lots of cuddles. Love him:

Then it’s Barre:

Work hard and now my tummy muscles are sore.

This person is waiting outside the front door when I arrive home:

Cuddle him and then put him out in the garden to play with his friend: a little black cat with white paws.

Have lunch and a sleep.

I have been doing some work for my Pilates Instructor Course and have passed three worksheets. Well done me.

Last night we watch an early episode of Midsomer Murders which is good. Love the early ones.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Safe From Harm*

Train again as I missed a few sessions whilst my trainer was away:

Then walk Dolly:

Have lunch with Hannah. Show you:

Hannah notices that I’m happy at the moment. I think it’s a combination of doing my work for my Pilates Instructor Course and the self development I’m doing with the Mel Wells Academy and Goddess Collective.

Mum brings me home and someone fluffy is waiting for me on the hall sofa:

Then he settles down on the spotty sofa:

I love that ridiculous fluff ball to distraction.

Have a sleep and now am working on Anatomy and Physiology.

Hopefully will watch some Silent Witness and knit after supper which is lentil spaghetti.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

*1991. Song by Massive Attack from the album Blue Lines.

Ask And It Is Given*

Just finished my two hours of making notes on Anatomy And Physiology. Having a well-deserved rest to watch Silent Witness and knit.

Scarf is coming along well:

Think it must be about halfway done by now.

My trainer is back from her holiday and I work hard at training. Here is my chest press:

My book for the Mel Wells Goddess Collective arrives today – the self development online course that I’m doing. Look forward to reading it:

Suzy is coming back to see me this evening.

Have a sleep earlier but am still tired. Looking forward to an early night and to seeing Dolly tomorrow.

Happy Monday everyone!

Sometimes, on days like today, I really don’t feel like going to the gym. It’s a sunny day. I’m warm in my flat. But I dress and go anyway.

Buy a coffee at the gym. Settle down to do the chest press and triceps press. Now I’m here I feel motivated to keep going.

Sometimes we all need a little nudge in the right direction. It will be better if you just do the thing that you’ve been putting off or avoiding. Here I am at the gym:

Do four sets of all my weights. My tummy is sore from abs exercises at Barre yesterday.

A good thing has happened. Suzy is coming over to do work with me. We can work together. This has really cheered me up.

Watch a Silent Witness this morning before the gym as woke up at 6.20am.

I have a copy of The Sunday Times to read.

Happy Sunday everyone!

*1994. Album by Massive Attack.

The Two Faces Of January*

Sleep from 9.30pm last night until eight o’clock this morning – a good long sleep.

Do Spin this morning:

It’s the Princess’s class. You can see us in the above photo. Work hard.

Then do Barre:

Burn 1013 calories in the two classes.

Go home for lunch. Then Dad drives me to the flat and to walk this person:

Have a rest but don’t sleep. Now am watching Luther and knitting. Felafel, hummus, avocado and spinach for supper soon.

Have brought my Anatomy and Physiology textbook, writing pad and stationery back to the flat with me. Am having a day off homework today but will return to it tomorrow after the gym. Or maybe before the gym if I wake up early.

Happy Saturday everyone!

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe*

Wake up this morning at six o’clock and do two hours of Anatomy And Physiology:

Then visit Gandalf. Here he is:

We have lots of cuddles. Go to Pilates:

On the way home we find the fluffy a couple of roads away and bundle him into the car and drive him home.

Have lunch and a sleep and then back to the textbook.

Now we’re at the surgery waiting for my Zoladex.

Tonight we’re going to watch One, Two Buckle My Shoe in which Poirot’s dentist gets murdered.

Have made an appointment for new Shellac nails next Thursday.

Happy Friday everyone!

*1940. By Agatha Christie. Hercule Poirot detective novel.

The Killings At Badger’s Drift*

Go to Spin this morning:

Then go home. Lunch. Then to hospital for my painful bum injections.

Mum buys me some stationary for my Pilates Instructor Course. Textbook arrives:

Have started working through it. I’m going to try to work on it for two hours per day, more or less. That seems like a good amount of time to spend on it.

See this person a lot today and give him many meals:

Last night we watch the first ever episode of Midsomer Murders: The Killing At Badger’s Drift 🦡. It’s excellent. Caroline Graham, the author of the books, must do pretty well out of the television series.

Right: back to work.

Happy Thursday everyone!

*1987. By Caroline Graham. Book 1 in the Chief Inspector Barnaby series.


Watch episode one of the new series of Luther before Mum arrives this morning. It’s very good. Love Idris Elba.

Then walk Dolly. Here we are:

Kiss and cuddle her. She’s my precious angel. It’s cold outside: four degrees.

Mum drives me back to the parentals where I have lunch and a sleep. Now am watching Silent Witness.

New scarf for Dolly’s owner is coming along well. Show you:

We are having spaghetti for supper. Mum is making it now. The fluffy monster is behind the sofa – pressed up against the radiator.

The parentals have had a new thing fitted so Dad can control it from his phone. It’s meant to heat the house up to twenty degrees but I’m cold under my furry blanket.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Dead Man’s Mirror*

Some photos from last night:

We have fun. It’s good to be out and wearing my Vivienne Westwood dress. We watch the fireworks at midnight from the rooftop of the club, which is good.

Get home about 1.30am but wake up at six o’clock. Read my book – The Word Is Murder. Watch Poirot in Dead Man’s Mirror whilst I wait for the gym to open.

Walk to gym. Here I am:

Do four sets of all my weights and then walk home.

Have lunch and a sleep. Wake up feeling a bit more human.

Now I’m watching Silent Witness and knitting. New scarf for Dolly’s owner is coming along well:

Hope that can finish it and give it to her before winter is over.

Happy New Year everyone!

*1937. By Agatha Christie. Hercule Poirot Short story that appears in the story collection Murder In The Mews.

The Word Is Murder*

Go to the gym and do four sets of all my weights:

Go to Hampstead to meet my chum and we meet a therapy Leonberger – he goes into twenty different hospitals to visit the patients. His fur is so soft and he’s so gentle:

Come back and have lunch and a sleep. Am still tired but have a coffee.

Have just woken up. My cleaner has been. Mum drops off my Vivienne Westwood gold dress: the dress code tonight is Gold And Sparkly. Cab is coming at 7.30pm. I’m excited about tonight.

Finish The Sentence Is Death and start the previous book in the series: The Word Is Murder.

Happy New Year everyone!
