Hearing, seeing, understanding and empathy.

Dear readers, I’ve been thinking lately about age. For a few years now my hearing has been changing. I can trace the biggest alteration back to when I became an audio typist for a hospital for a year and a half, and wore headphones in my ears 5 days a week for 6-7 hours aContinue reading “Hearing, seeing, understanding and empathy.”

Cycling Around to Lift your Spirits & help others…

A couple of years ago, I started cycling again. I’ve cycled for years, ever since a friend gave me her old bike because she was moving to Kent and didn’t want to take it with her. I gave the bike a name, Trusty Steed. My friend’s name was Mercy, and we found oneanother again onContinue reading “Cycling Around to Lift your Spirits & help others…”

My Diabetes Avoidance Blog

Hello again dear readers, I had forgotten to mention that in addition to giving up chocolate, I have given up most yogurt. Quite a few yogurts too have ridiculously high levels of sugar.

Now this could beContinue reading “My diabetes Avoidance Blog – Sugar, Sugar; plastic, plastic, and money, money, money?”

My Diabetes Avoidance Blog; coffee, books, cycling, figs and bananas.

Hello dear readers, To borrow a phrase from another writer called Charlotte. I’ve been away in Mallorca, cycling and walking, which explains my lack of writing.

This time, I was set on cycling up a mountain, and finishing The Fault in our Stars which I hadContinue reading “My Diabetes Avoidance Blog; coffee, books, cycling, figs and bananas.”

My Diabetes Avoidance Blog

Dear readers, As a reader, I was told that I had a thousand followers, which made me feel responsible for creating something for you all. I am a little tired this morning, as I have cycled around 200 k on a cycling holiday in Mallorca, a wonderful place where the people are kind and friendly;Continue reading “My Diabetes Avoidance Blog”
