So my experiences of the 5-2 diet so far? The weight loss is agonisingly slow but the promise is it's sustainable. if it's going to take me two years at this rate to get down to my target weight then so be it, if it stays off.

Of course it wasn't originally touted as a weight-loss programme per se but rather as a health kick by Michael Mosley to move away from a pre-diabetic condition. I have regular blood tests but I've never worried about how close I might be to diabetes. It's a vague concern, though, so I'm happy this should be pushing me in the right direction.

And finally, the fasting is easy. Really no problem at all. 600 calories on a fasting day is a perfectly satisfying evening meal and as I hardly ever eat breakfast and can go without a midday meal without a problem, it isn't a difficulty.

I will be my old sylph-like self some time in 2018, perhaps.

A man was visited by the police for tweeting his opinion of UKIP. Despite the fact he had not committed any offence, as the police admitted, they nevertheless asked him to remove the Tweet.

This illiberal shit, apparently a UKIP employee, https://plus.google.com/109925615178412088443/posts is defending the original complaint and the police action
I've written about different things and different people, but surprisingly for a blog (which, let's face it, is pretty much the archetype of vanity publishing) I've never written anything about me. Until now. Yesterday aftern...

It's been a week since I returned from China and I've only scratched the surface of my photos. Also, it's given me a bit of an itch to travel more widely. I wonder how I can do that for more than just a few weeks each year.

The best Indian food I've tasted in years - innovative dishes - and although the place was very busy when I was there the waiters were attentive and the food arrived quickly. Arranging another trip from 130 miles away because it was so good.

Food not at all bad but: service hit-and-miss - one of us asked for a sweet lassie, was told that was fine, then told they didn't do them; the dining area was very, very cramped - I sat in a chair at the table we were shown to and was ordered to move because the fourth chair blocked the waiters; service was slow; the restaurant was cold, my plate was cold, the food didn't arrive together (there were only 3 in our party). Wouldn't go back

Food indifferent but the real problem was the length of time they took to make 3 simple sandwiches (45 minutes) and the half-hearted apologies. I would never, ever eat there again. Take a look around for other reviews - this seems to be a common experience.

Fantastically rude staff. I asked for a medium- sized coffee and was admonished for not calling it a 12oz coffee. Bizarre behaviour, can only assume it survives because some masochists expect or enjoy rudeness from people employed to make coffee. There are other cafes and other bookshops in Boulder. Use them instead.

Stopped for one night. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the hotel was completely quiet through the night and the restaurant we ate at (there are 2 in the hotel, I understand) trying for a bit more than your average hotel restaurant. Very highly recommended.

Larry and Lynne couldn't have been more welcoming as hosts, the house and location are beautiful and the dogs the friendliest dogs I've ever met. An excellent place to stay if you're in the area.

Our first room's sink was blocked and the staff took 4 hours to relocate us. Our night was disrupted completely - we got about 3 hrs sleep - by noisy occupants who spent all night thumping on our ceiling. We told the staff about the problem several times throughout the night; they did nothing about the noise. I would never stay in this place again and as there's plenty of choice nearby I recommend you try anywhere else.
