Me Day

Today I have had a me day – I’ve never had a me day, so this has been a first.

This morning I went and got a manicure and had my nails painted with Gel polish.


Lovely! I enjoyed it a lot!

I got home in time for lunch – which is our only meal today as we are giving the intermittent fasting thing a go. The idea is that you just eat 500 (600 for men) calories in one meal – then nothing else. It is supposed to do two jobs, firstly the reduction in calories aids weight loss, but also the fasting helps your body go into repair mode.

I’m hungry now, but I am determined to get through the day! I had two poached eggs and bacon for my meal – plenty at the time!

This afternoon we did a 3.25 mile walk. It’s hot out there!


I was quite tired by the time we got home – and hot!


Look how high the hedges have grown! At least they gave us a bit of shade.


In between lunch and walk I did a bit more book editing. Boy that can drive you nuts – but I am getting there!

Now I am going to settle in with more Olympics and some black coffee.

Have a fantastic Friday!

Work, Rest & Play

Happy Friday! I’m so pleased – I have next week off!

I worked from home today, which proved quite hard as the Olympics news feed kept distracting me! It started mid-morning with Jessica Ennis breaking the record for her hurdles in the pentathlon! Go Jess! After that I turned the twitter feed off! Just far too distracting with stuff to do.

Lunch was smoked salmon and salad, then back to work, but not before booking myself a manicure for next week – got to love a bit of pampering!

I enjoyed turning on my Out Of Office message at 4pm and off we went for a walk.

We have had showers today, but we were lucky and kept dry!


Met these guys who were quite interested in us!


You can see the dark clouds were looming – but they stayed away for us.

An early dinner of lamb curry and I am now settled into couch-potato mode to watch the Olympics until they turn it off!

Have a great evening and a lovely weekend!
