My story? I have been to Liverpool twice. The first time I only saw Beatles related things and the second time was with the University of Utrecht. Unfortunately the morning I had off and I could see a bit of Liverpool, was also the morning my camera decided to quit on me (empty batteries) and I didn't carry any spares. So I have very few photos. Oh, for all the non-Brits: Liver in the building is pronounced like diver.

Not only did the moeving about more or less grind to a hald several times, the wiehtt I had worked so hard to get down, also slowly started creepuing up again. And then stopped creeping and stuarted running and jumping. Which meant that by the time January 1st rolled around, I had gained back nearly all I had lost. Yikes!
They do also have a annual challenge, which they name ofter the year and this year's challenge is 2022. It can be anything you choose, be it the distance thyou plan on running or walking or cycling or swimming or whatever this year. You can also have other gowals and people use it for a dayly help to stay sober, get off the couch, brush their hair, and wieth lss. Weight loss.
Another goal this year is gettin back to walking. For that I need to loose weight as well, as my knee is suffering from all the xtra weitght. In the mean time I will ycyle , either at home or outside and I hope that once my wrist ois okay agai, I will get to go swimming again. I know I wol never do a tiratho triathlon again, but to be able to at least walk, would be great.

My story? During the trip in the Provence years ago, I was allowed to come on a canoeing trip with the youngsters. They stuck me in the boat with the smallest girl possible, who was very likely overjoyed to be sat in the canoe with me instead of her friends(!). This photo was actually taken from the water (River Gardon).
By the by: a small rectification needs to be made as well: Hilary also gets a point for the Edmonton Mall. My point will be taking down again (sigh). It won't change the final outcome of last year, but she is definitely a force to be reckoned with!

|This will stay in the cupboard for a while longer|
Then last week I got to see a hand therapist. She loked, asked and then continued to make a splint. A bit of heated plastic was moulded around my hand and then go cut to size. Fasternes were attached and I was told I had to wear it for at least three weeks. I am allowed to take if off occasianlyy, but I have to wear it when using the hand.
So far it has been okay to wear. Better at least than the other one, which allwed much more movement of the hand itself and did not incorportate that thumb. It also causes some problems, mainly with food making and other fernickity household chores like folding laundry.
The plan is now: werar the splint for at least three weeks and then ahave an other pappointment with the theratpist. Then I have to start using it less and less, providing the pain is gone. She thoguht it was promising the hand was laready quite painless now, so had good hpes for a full recoery.
Anyway. So far so good and before I know it the hand will be fine again. But, no moving anywhere anytime soon!

My story? On a holiday in Belgium and Luxembourg many moons ago, we visited Brussels and wanted to see this little statue. He is not always nude though, because as Gattina said: there is a whole museum of clothes for him and he is dressed up regularly (okay, extra quarter point to her). Unfortunately when we were there, he was wearing his birthday suit. I will have to visit the museum one day to see some of his outfits.
