Resolutions, baby food and giving

I don’t know about you but I find it very difficult to stick to my resolution to lose weight.  I’m sure that I make a similar resolution every year and somehow (mainly through food!) I never manage it.  I always end up at around about the same weight regardless of how much I eat or…

Order, order

I do like to be organised. Not that I always am, but it always helps to have a system. The lovely feeling of having things in order, under control and organised is great.

The final two days! :)

So we are now sitting on the M25, in slight traffic with no beeping horns, lane structure and quiet! It feels very strange! Our last few days in Chennai have been so busy – sorry for the lack of social networking activity. Thursday was again an Oasis day – the teams delivered their last English…
