Day 95 -6
Had a busy day at work but with the light traffic was home early. I was meant to be jogging with the girls but, while I was picking Shelagh up from the farmplace, I looked over the Valley and saw Win Hill calling to me. I don't walk up there very often in winter as the paths are soooo muddy but really fancied it tonight. So called Shlley up and cancelled and headed up there as you can see from the piccies.
It's a long walk and pretty big hill so set off by 6.15 and had to keep the pace up to make sure I ws off the hill before dark. Didn't get back down 'til after 8 but it was a gorgeous tramp.
I just fancied being alone for no apparent reason. I'm not in a bad mood and I didn't do any serious thinking or anything - just laughed at the dog and took a few piccies. I didn't meet anyone up there apart from a man and his son out mountain biking right on the top so he took the piccies of me and the dog and I took one of the pair of them in return.
He offered me a biscuit too but I turned it down!!
That reminds me - while I was driving into work this morning I reached into the glove compartment for something and found an untouched bar of Green & Blacks milk chocolate. There was a piece on the radio, just at that moment, going on about how scientists had found out that most people preferred chocolate to kissing their partners (Well, der!) (something to do with raised heart rates being measured or some such) and it was very hard to resist. So hard in fact that I didn't - I had a single piece and then left it on the passenger seat all the way into work where I took it out and threw it in the bin. I would have given it to colleagues but it had been melted and God knows how old it was! It tasted great though so while I'm p**sed off with myself for breaking my mini target - I'm not too distraught because I have learned that you CAN stop after one tiny piece of chocolate, not a fact I was previously acquainted with!!
I'm noticing a pattern here - I manage the hard stuff like the weekend to France and trips to London etc but then nibble when I get back to the familiar - must be on my guard for that next time.
Anyway, that's all for now. Hope you're all having a fab LL week.
