The Solo Woman Traveller over 50

In the name of Viaggi per Donne and travel for the solo woman of a certain age, I have just spent three days in Florence, Italy in unbelievable temperatures; the older I get, the less I am able to cope with super hot weather. Spent a lot of time drinking coca cola with salt to […]

Becoming Me!

This is something I wrote in 2012, about becoming me, at the request of someone else; it was published somewhere, although I can’t remember where! I find it interesting to read and I hope you do too. Becoming anything is important; becoming yourself, and not what you’re expected to be,  is vital …

Sight … Life, Aging, Diet & Exercise

So … a weird title but it’s the best I can do! Having just fought with yet another piece of equipment, which involved trying to fit a USB into a space far too small for it (bad design), I realised that one of the things that I find most frustrating is not being able to see […]
