Star Gazing

Yesterday, it was my birthday, 55 years young and don’t feel ‘old’ as this age bracket seems to be described as… what’s that all about? I’ve never put much store by numbers I prefer to think Continue reading

How Did I Do?

Health check time. It’s almost the end of January, and I promised that I would do a monthly review on progress. I made a number of plans at the beginning of the year -I won’t say ‘resolutions’ because Continue reading
