I was pleased to know I am doing everything Ms Cheung advises, but I know my portions are too large. I will definitely try using a 9" plate, ooh that sounds very small :-O

Thanks for posting, I love your videos!

Kath - We're the same... I thought a 9" plate was for the side dish! Saying that though, we do tend to eat more veggies than anything else, I'm sure you're the same!

I'll have to see if our library has this book. I'd love to read it! I read Peace Is Every Step when I was a teenager and just loved it.

I do most of these steps, like not skipping meals, eating plant based and using smaller plates (as well as bowls), but there are a few I have to work on. Great video!

Molly - We love Thich Nhat Hanh, he seems such a beautiful, gentle man! Glad you like the video - It's just good to remind ourselves of mindfulness!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
