Hello dear Sparkfriends! I have missed my long hikes! Can you believe my last 'proper' hike was on 7th October? I know it is a shame, but really these last few weeks have been crazy! And I am very glad I managed to go on walks in Congo and ... Read more

Autumn crocuses in the meadows...
Monday, October 01, 2012     

It took me a while to get ready for my hike yesterday... I had been feeling very much 'under the weather' on Saturday, probably made it worse by receiving a letter that upset me too. I hate how my emotions can ruin my day sometimes! So I wa... Read more

Saturday, September 15, 2012     

'Tillard' doesn't sound too good in French. Not very elegant at all, quite harsh. Luckily, the village which is called Tillard (in the Oise area North of Paris) is much more beautiful than its name... See what you think... ... Read more

I hopped on the scale this morning and there it was... finally... a 1.5Kg/3.3lbs loss since 1st August (on top of the 3Kg/6.6lbs lost at the end of July)! It might seem like nothing, but I have waited for this for many years – 6 weeks of weight ... Read more
