GET THIN GET THIN GET THIN

The French Spring Battle-Cry!

That time of the year again when this desperateanglohousewife feels like the poster-girl for too many culinary indulgences over Winter (...autumn, winter, spring, summer, autumn, winter..!)


Every magazine, pharmacy window, pop-up and flyer are constantly telling me Mincir, mincir, mincir


It's the annual self-cringe moment when, in France, the gorgeous snake-hipped, unhealthily slim french woman gets, well, even slimmer. 

It is a dreadful time of the year to live in this country...
Instead of telling myself I have an anglo/scottish heritage of tall, big-boned women to blame for my curves, I :
1. Do the French thing of hissing and spitting at myself.
2. Take a "cure" of something with enormous amounts of herbs and plants which renders me utterly loo-bound
3. Stop buying butter!
4. Watch Georgy Girl** for the 100th time and cry into my chardonnay. 
This year things have to change. Basic logic tells me it is not at 40-something that I am going to transform overnight into a French-sized nymph/goddess. 


I have discovered the ease and delight of shopping on UK shop websites which deliver to France...no more trying to squeeze into humiliating French sunfrocks where the waist is about an inch below my boobs, my arms look like sausages and where 'knee-length' still shows my hockey-knees to the world instead of falling just below them! 
Instead of dealing with the shop-girl smirks as I try to button up something across my chest where the button holes seem out on my shoulders, I now click onto Next, Monsoon, Johnny Boden, House of Fraser, and the like. I love the way my goods arrive and simply...fit.


For my health and well-being, I have cut out as much gluten as is reasonably possible and start the day with a fruit and vegetable smoothie. Lunch is an enormous salad and dinner chilled soups or misos. My shape probably won't change much, apart from shedding a few surplus kilos, but I feel infinitely better in both health and womanhood at 40-something!


**ps. Georgy Girl, The Seekers..;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSVfLNCW4Fs

Fresh Blueberry, Banana and Carrot Juice Smoothie


1 large banana
1 cup fresh blueberries ( if you can't find fresh, Picard have them)
1 cup organic carrot juice
juice of half a lemon/lime
2 - 3 ice cubes


Whizz ingredients for about 30 seconds. Drink immediately.

  17. This is a common misconception which will be resolved only with firsthand experience.
    The objective is to arrange your passions as carefully as possible with your online promotion
    company. It's a competitive world out there on the world-wide web, but SEO consulting can help you dramatically improve your odds of being found in the din and getting your message across. This gives your name higher credibility and better search engine rank. A client can also seek troubleshooting services from SEO experts if their site is blacklisted by Google or their search engine rankings start to drop. It would cut the marketing project to fit it into your budget. While these 5 truths may seem self-evident, it is the astonishing fact that they are contradicted, and even outright disputed, in the greater SEO debate. This is because there is a stiff competition in this particular field and the market is flooded with lots of firms that provide proficient SEO experts India services at the economical costs. Its professionals would do hard work to achieve the high traffic objective and they might taste success in their attempt but they would desist from boasting anything about their success. What are the advantages of article submission. Use SEM experts to recognize duplicate content as part of your website, and act immediately to have it settled. However, in general, SEO services involve using standard and compliant coding. Basically, if you create links to your website with "ink cartridges" or "printer cartridges" in the anchor text, it will help move your website up on the search results for those key words. You can Google maps link for your website, which will be very helpful if any person search in images sections. These professionals follow ethical SEO strategy and effectively implement it that finally increases your website visibility. As of now, Thomas Lenarz has helped many people get the information on reputed SEO companies. Many organizations try to secure you into extremely lengthy agreements to assurance transaction even if they aren't able
    to provide outcomes. SEO is becoming the most rewarding career nowadays.
    What is the magic formula. This is more of an indirect way of getting direct traffic to your
    e - Bay store.

    If you look around your community, our country, and the world, there is little evidence of

    sight of how lucky they felt to have each other as their
