Sorry I’m late with November’s resolution – I’ve been on holiday (just to make you both jealous) in Majorca and somehow couldn’t find the time! We discussed possible plans at the airport during our three-hour delay but I didn’t get as far as writing it up.
So November’s resolution is
To eat red meat a maximum of twice per week
I seem to have read many times during 2019 that eating less meat is the single best thing we can do to help the environment. That’s not to say that we shouldn’t do all the other carbon savings of course.
I will keep a record of how often we eat read meat, starting yesterday (3 November) when we had steak as an end of holiday treat. I’m afraid we had bacon sandwiches (my favourite) for lunch today so we’ve blown it for the whole week!
I am a woman of a certain age (not 60 yet!) who lives in Bristol. I’ve lived almost my whole life in Bristol, with a short sojourn in Cornwall in my teens. I am trying to lead my life in an ethical way in all areas and hope to explore what this means.
I have four passions and several interests so I hope I will have plenty to write about. My passions are my family, knitting, cricket and St Peter’s Hospice. My other interests are volunteering, the environment, reading, TV, films & theatre, fundraising, chronic fatigue, mental health and eating. My non-interests are animals, housework, football, rugby and cooking.
I come from a family of four – two sisters and a brother. Our parents dies a few years ago. I am married to my soulmate Colin, an amazing man who tolerates my funny ways and supports me in everything I do. We have three children and two wonderful granddaughters. I am so proud of my family – we must have done something right as they are all good people. I have two sons-in-law who I love like my own and together we all make up a family unit where everyone loves and respects everyone else.
I am a total hypochondriac but do have some genuine problems, some of which I may talk about at a later date. At the moment I am overweight and have just started to eat more healthily, which I think is the answer to weight loss. We were on holiday last week and enjoyed puddings and cakes every day.
I work part-time and Colin is recently retired. This means that we have been able to spend much more time together doing some of the things we’ve been meaning to do – some planned and some spontaneous. I love this period of my life – I just wish I had the energy to match the time and the opportunities available!
