, for almost a month now I've been waking up with tight painful muscles. The muscles press tight on the nerves and I ache worse.
Once I've done some stretching and had a daily hot bath the pain lessens.
Apparently it's just one of the symptoms of my hypothyroidism (one day when we've finished paying for the kids uni fees I'll be able to afford an endocrinologist instead of just the local GP.
I've now gone onto international roast decaffinated coffee and it may be a coincidence but without the caffine I used to swallow i'm aching a bit less this morning.
I browsed though some old magazines I was given by a friend and there was a mini leaflet/booklet attached to one. It was called the Sugar Addicts Diet

So often we are tied to collectable memorabillia that we will probably only glimpse every 10 years.
This very morning whilst sitting in bed I looked at all our boxes of photo's and boxes of storage junk (and yes I also have drawings that I did as a kid and my kids did as kids) so I said to my self, "Dolly if you were to suddenly die, would you really want your family to have to sift through this space filling stuff that nobody else wants and of course the reply was a big fat "no!"
So it was really amazing that you were actually doing the very same thing as I was thinking of doing.
Here is a wonderful site that you may have heard of it's called

I did it for 2 years but found I couldn't keep up as I'm a slacker by nature. Fly Lady is definately worth a try though.
Got to visit the folks this morning so I'd better shake a leg.
