Recently I blogged about the onset of my middle-age and in particular catching myself in photographs and realising that my fifth decade is approaching.

I have started cycling. I’ve even bought lycra  and from this Sunday I am going to complete my trio of 1sts by going on my first ever diet.

From Sunday for 9 days. A programme recommended by a mate called Clean 9 – I will blog about it complete with photographs of my widening mid-rift.
