Day 51-54 – ENERGY!!

I cannot get over how much energy I have – even though I know theoretically I am bogging myself down with laden fats and proteins! AND – I have lost 4.1 kg – YIP, that is 9 pounds! In reality we cannot keep this up, and it will only be another week, and then I […]

Day 50 – Sunshine on the waters!

For all intent and purpose, I should be promoting the wonders of this wonderful establishment that is called the Brandon House Hotel, and not squeak a word of anywhere else. However, I have to tell you about my most charming day! My boss – lovingly referred to as “Big Chief” sent me on a mission […]

Day 41-49 – I’m back!

  Some have been in contact to ask why I have so suddenly ceased to blog, and the answer is simple. I didn’t feel like it. Not an I-couldn’t-be-bothered feel like it…. a slightly down in the dumps, did not feel I had any answers to anything, sorry for myself kinda feel like it. Pathetic […]

Day 36 – A little sex, and not much city!

What did Abu Dhabi pay HBO to have a whole film shot on location? Yes, I was very trepidatious going to see the latest rendition of what was one of my favourite tv series of all time. I was already a little let down by film numero “o no”, but after reading all the crits, assumed the […]

Day 35 – Juicy!

I’m taken back to my childhood, where we had a vine in our garden, and “organic” to the roots. Grapes were really juicy, and they had big bitter seeds inside. What is a grape without seed? Ha Ha – I know – seedless. Yes I asked for that, but seriously – will we be destined […]

Day 33 – The best little……

Allow me to share this story with you – with permission from my astounded mother, of course. I receive a frantic phone call: “Skype me please – quickly”!
