Letting the light in at Hay

Letting the light in at Hay

31st May 2011

 

Even though we've already done our bit for the philisophers amongst you at HowTheLightGetsIn, the philosophy and music festival at Hay on Wye, there's still time to catch some brilliant and thought-provoking entertainment until the 5th June. The festival is in its third year and takes place just down the road from the more straight laced Hay Festival so it's worth a detour to see what's on offer as it's refreshingly relaxed and the pies are fantastic!

This year's festival has over 350 events, plus a spectacular array of live performances, comedy nights and film screenings. Leading thinkers in every field will mix with cutting edge musicians to excite…

Battersea Park or bust!

Battersea Park or bust!

23rd May 2011

 

Last Wednesday 18th May I squeezed into my tutu and attended a very rainy Battersea Park where we awaited the arrival of 4000 women to take part in a 5k run/walk for Cancer Research UK's Race for Life. They arrived slowly but soon the field was filled with a sea of bright colours, costumes and smiling faces.   There was also a crepe stall which I avoided. Jane Michell, my diet guru from JanePlan was there and I didn't want to her to feel I was a lost cause...besides...it could have been a trap!  

Toby Anstis from Heart FM was presenting onstage, there were performances from local dancers, a very moving speech by the inspirational Leanne Grose who had lost a…

Getting slim and fit for Race for Life

Getting slim and fit for Race for Life

23rd May 2011

 

Wednesday was a very exciting day. Had large box delivered in the  morning...28 days of food! And for a change it wasn't from the local pizza place! In a couple days time I will be embarking on The JanePlan www.janeplan.com which is the brainchild of Jane Michell who is a very nice (and reassuringly slim!) lady. I met up with Jane last week for a consultation and tried to be honest about my eating habits in order for her to create a realistic plan for me. I found her warm and non-judgmental...she even offered me something to eat in the coffee shop...!

I've tried most of the 'fad' diets out there and had minor success and some disasters and as a cla…
