Mmmm' we had real sunshine today.....

22 comments


This morning I felt rather weary, but I looked out at the glorious sunshine and thought – No, This is definitely a day to be outdoors so I wearily donned my gardening gear and trudged slowly outside. I started with an inspection of the borders and, yes, the dratted weeds were inded proliferating ( nice word Aye? ) so out came the hoe and FOUR hours later I took myself indoors with aching back and lots of satisfaction to have some lunch and then couldn’t resist going out again later to admire my weed free borders. BIG MISTAKE. Two hours later I returned indoors and now the aching back could positively be heard groaning, so now I’m wondering if my presence will be missed at the coffee morning in the morning. Will I never learn?…

Hi Sticky, what a great idea, but I haven't got one, not even a bath, only a shower room,not the same at all, at all, so will use my massager instead. HOPE it works...

Hi Terra, seven hours!!! It's a long time since I did that, and my four hours was heavily punctuated with little sit downs. Excuse awful grammer....

Hi Breda... I did stop now and then to make cups of tea, and drinks for my dogs , which I took out into the garden ... :o)

Makes me feel better to hear that. Don't feel quite so decrepit now. Thank you...

i think you should both be off to the local gym/swimming pool/spa!!!

Oh yeah! Do YOU go Sticky?.... But I did go until late last year. Wish I had not stopped!!! And that tells a story...

Well done Breda, you might be weary but I bet you enjoyed it, no wind here today so I have also spent all day outside....

I'm jealous. I was stuck in a cold office and by the time I came home I was fit for nothing. I'm hoping for some good ( at least dry) weather at the weekend so I can have aching muscles too.
Sounds like you both did good work though and will have a feeling of satisfaction as you massage those muscles.

Hi Sue, I did really but I wish someone would invent something to banish weeds for all time, and I BET I have lots of co-wishers too...

Hi Marshmallow, sorry you missed out on todays sunshine. Fingers crossed for the weekend...

I worked nearly all day today and was too tired to do anything useful [apart from make tea] when i got back.

I used to go Breda but i havent really got the money any more; quite tempted to join instead of going on holiday ~ it would last a whole year that way!!!

No don't cancel your holiday Sticky. Go and have a great time and then think about the gym when back home. However my son is super fit and that's just from walking. I used to play golf and I know that walking is really the best form of excercising. If I could only have those days back, it was fabulous. Are you going somewhere exotic, or perhaps just peaceful? Either is lovely...

no nothing planned, we went to Islay, Inner Hebrides, Scotland for a week earlier in the year but wont be doing anything till next year now.

15 Sep, 2011

 

That's what I thought as I knew you went to Islay earlier. I am going to Tuscany next June all being well. We have booked it already. We are going to Vinci and there will be eleven of us again. Can't wait...

15 Sep, 2011

 

wow!! that will be amazing, i have been to tuscany once but i dont think i have been to vinci? i take it thats where leonado comes from??

15 Sep, 2011

 

Yes, it is indeed and I think it should be very interesting. It is also fairly close to Florence, Pisa and several other great places so as I said I can't wait. We will be staying in a beautiful villa so perhaps I won't want to leave it TOO often while we are there.......

when i go on holiday, if it is a nice place i never want to go far!! dont like travelling all day and everyday!!

i think it was montecatini [?] that i stayed in when i was in tuscany??

dont forget your camera!!!

16 Sep, 2011

 

Well, as the whole family are coming my very own photographer i.e. Brendan ( he who makes friends with bulls - real ones - ) will be with us so I can just relaxxxxxx........

How about Aqua Aerobics,Breda.? I make myself go twice a week.Ugh! Do feel much better afterwards.That is after the coffee and toasted teacake!!!!

18 Sep, 2011

 

That might a bit of a disaster Meadowland as I can't swim, but I do enjoy the water and I have a lovely cossie. Shame it never gets wet. Would love to try that form of exercise especially followed by coffee and toasted teacake. Yummie.......
