Dieting – why I don’t do it!

I read an interesting statistic recently - only 1 in 100 people who diet actually keep the weight off long-term. I knew the success rates were low but didn’t know they were quite that bad. But from my own, albeit fairly limited experience of dieting, I’m not surprised either. I say ‘limited’ because I’ve only really tried one diet, although I’ve tried it maybe six or seven times. Another shocking statistic I heard once is that many (or is that most?) women diet throughout their lives, many being completely governed by their obsession with food.

Letting children out on their own

This happened a few years son and his cousin both 5 were playing in my parent's garden. My parents have a big garden, it's about 200 foot long but it's not enormous and it's surrounded by a hedge/fence all around. Anyway, they were playing outside alone which I thought was completely fine.

Have you ever met a woman who doesn’t like other women?

I’m sure I have but can’t remember who. I know I’ve met people – men and women who never looked at me or answered every question I asked to the male person I was with.
