My new regime. 😊


I decided after reading the book “The Monk who sold his Ferrari” that I was going to follow his advice and start a new daily regime ( is that the right word) John my editor is still laid in bed)   So basically I decided to seize the day by rising earlier.

I didn’t have a particularly good night sleep 😴 after thinking someone was chasing me I all but leapt out of bed at midnight which shook me up for a while. Then I kept looking at the bedside clock to see if it was early enough to get up. I actually almost got up at 5.45am, well my toe touched the floor then somehow jumped back into the nice warm bed.

I lay awake , all was silent and I began thinking about the doctors appointment I had yesterday, I’ve told you before my doctor is Italian and a lovely man. He knows me well now. I’m the women who is sensitive to almost every drug on the marketplace for blood pressure. I have every side effect , then more! He smiled when I went in and said “Hello, how are you doing, slip your jacket off” I was just about to tell him it was a thick cardigan but stopped myself and complied.

He took hold of my wrist , I thought he had received my test results from the MRI scan I had done recently but he just gazed up at the ceiling. Then he looked at me with his big brown eyes and said “well the good news is you have a pulse “. I replied well that’s good to hear. We both had a good laugh about that 😁

Sorry I digress, so I must have fallen asleep again because when I looked at the clock again it was 7.45am.

Right I thought, UP NOW! I won’t lie I found it difficult. I slid my feet round on the carpet to locate my slippers and walked/staggered towards the bedroom door. Shivering with the cold I pulled on my dressing gown and closed the bedroom door behind me. When I opened the lounge door it was like getting off an aeroplane after landing on some tropical 🏝 . We don’t have any heat on in the bedroom but we do in the lounge

My eyes were blinded by a strange orange colour.  Yes, we have an orange rug

The sky was a beautiful orangey shade, I’ve not seen sky this colour for ages because I’m usually 😴😴😴


This alone was worth getting up for. I thought about the monk who sold his Ferrari and remember his suggestion of eating a healthy breakfast. I made myself a cup of tea and reached into the cupboard for something healthy. Now believe me I do not know how this happened, it must have been a Christmas miracle but look what landed on my plate. 😳


A lovely piece of cake 🍰 How did that happen 🤭


Obviously 🙄 I had to eat it, give me a break! At least I’ve started my newregime 😉


  1. yummy! Just break down that cake into its parts…eggs, flour from wheat (lovely grain and oh so good for you) milk, cocoa (also VERY good for emotional strength and happiness)….see it is HEALTHY! enjoy!
