JULY 2015

I decided that this is my year - well, am getting off to a slow start - but have kept going.

Am not following any challenges right now. Am just trying to keep cool in our very warm weather - in the 3 digits most days. And that has resulted in more water retention - so the doctor has upped my water pills and the potassium. Am concentrating on getting more potassium in my diet.

Am getting to the club at least 3 to 4 times a week - and am starring to use the elliptical some - it is hard for me but am determined to do at least 3 to 5 minutes on it.

And, of course, am truly enjoying my knitting. Started a new cowl pattern in a light purple - a fun knit.

Good morning Barb,
Hope you're well and enjoyed the birthday party.

l've been through at Jason's all week babysitting whilst they work, l spend the day there and come home each evening
Jason is on holiday this next week so l don't have to go through but l'm back on again the week after...l'm enjoying it!

We did a bit of gardening yesterday and then went for a ride into town, we intended a walk along the seafront but it started to rain quite heavily so we came home.
Today is even wetter! We were going to go up into the forestry but it looks set in so we're having a lazy day at home.

Hope you have a good week-end emoticon

Good afternoon Barb, l'm just back from delivering the girls back home and catching up with everything on the computer...l've got 87 emails...lol...

How sad about the fire fighters, they do sterling work putting themselves in danger to help others. l hope the fires are under control now and your weather has cooled off.
We're very hot and muggy too today. l wish it would make up it's mind what to do, one day it's cold the next way too hot, never two days the same!

l drink a lot of water, around three litres a day, if l miss out on it l feel sluggish. lt really is very good for you so persevere if you can. l actually like our water but my friend has a Brita Pitcher too.

lt's good to hear from you, take care and have a wonderful weekend. emoticon

Good morning Barb, hope you're well.

The weather has picked up a bit and l'm enjoying getting out and about again.
We went to a Scarecrow Festival last week, lots of very well interpreted themes and a lovely walk around a beautiful village and then yesterday we visited another village's Church Flower Festival, the theme was 'All Clued Up' and each arrangement depicted a fictional detective, there were clues in the arrangements and we guessed all twenty nine correctly...it was fun and the flowers were gorgeous.
Of course each visit ended with a lovely cuppa and a piece of home made cake...lol...very nice!

l'm feeling much better now after my little fall in the street last week.
l didn't get to my kneeler group as l set off to go but met an neighbour's daughter who need help with something and it all went haywire from then on.
l sprained my wrist, skinned my knees and landed face down on the path. My lip, nose and chin are still a bit tender as they were quite cut and skinned but l've scabbed over and the bruises have come out nicely so l feel fine today...that's what you get for doing a favour for someone...lol...l felt a right idiot too laid out full length in the street with blood everywhere!!

Well, hope you have a wonderful day, l'm taking it easy as l don't have the children today, might get on with a bit of sewing now my wrist has stopped hurting.

Take care xx emoticon emoticon
