Interesting ideas.

I laughed at the British breakfast idea!

Don't know! Maybe just a different oil used or something we aren't used to. Even DH noticed something. It doesn't seem to be anything serious. I had a a drink of peppermint tea which has helped.

We use a lot of olive oil and for salads extra virgin olive oil.

I am not walking a lot these days, mostly because I don't live in a pedestrian-friendly city. Right now with all the construction work going on, I either have to walk early, or walk on a week-end as the diverted traffic now goes by the routes that I usually walk.

Wine - whilst I like the occasional glass of wine, I've cut down on these. I'm just not into wine right now, maybe because it's so hot and the only thing that would work is a fizzy white such as a prosecco or champagne.

Breakfast - when I remember it'll be toast and tea. A couple of months per year I'll have eggs. A few times per year I'll have eggs with the works, but it's rare that I have a full fry-up. Even in Europe I'd only have a fry-up once a year, twice at most, when the boys are in town and have brought soda bread and Irish sausages and black pudding.

Packaged food - yup. It's a whole lot cheaper to cook from scratch here.

Olive oil - yup. I used to hate the stuff when I was younger but now I love it. I've learned to buy the good stuff, too.

Spuds - I can eat them every day!

Catnaps - I used to when I would work from home. Sometimes I nap in the car, but it's not the same.

Finding the time for friends - yes! That's important!

Doddling at the table - whenever possible.

I added red wine to my diet because I had read so much about the anti-oxidants, etc.. it contained.

No, not tried cherry wine. Sounds interesting. DH drinks non-alcoholic red wine sometimes to get the anti-oxidants. I find it too sweet to be enjoyable.

It's not easy to find here but some supermarkets have one type. Also a white and a rose.

DH likes some non alcoholic beer. He was surprised at how readily available it was in suprmarkets - and bars - in France and Spain. It is avaialbel here but you have to look for it

Non-alcoholic wine? I've never seen that! I've seen non-alcoholic beer, but have never tried it.

Speaking of cherries and beer, I did try a Belgian cherry beer a very long time ago. That was before the time I started to make myself like beer, so I did not enjoy it at all.
