Hi all. Can't believe how long it's been since I last posted! That's not like me is it? There's no particular reason, I've just been really busy and have tried to get to the computer but without sucess. I have checked in with everyone elses' blogs a fair bit but haven't had time to do mine. Of course, once you're a day or so behind, you need even more time to catch up so there's a proper Catch 22 situation!
We didn't have much energy left after all that but managed a nice walk round the stepping stones and the Mill so Shelagh could have a good swim. We've been a bit slack on walks recently - I think the garden has taken it's toll - so it was nice to get out in the sunshine. Soon the swallows will be low-flying and then Shelagh will enter her favourite time of year - she absolutely loves chasing the swallows round the fields, races round after them, yipping a high pitched yippy bark, for hours and I'm sure the birds tease her too. She will only just return when we call her but, to be honest, it's such fun watching her going mental that we let her on. She certainly sleeps in swallow season!!
I've been under pressure from D to go out to the pub with him more hence the difficulty of getting to the computer. I've enjoyed it but, now he's away back to the rig, I must say that I'm really looking forward to being acountable to no-one for my time. Does anyone else feel as though they're torn into pieces sometimes re demands on their time??
On the diet front, it's going pretty well. Not bad on the nibbles and excellent on the exercise so can't complain. The compliments are still flowing when I meet people I haven't seen for a while so that keeps me going a bit. I'm pretty solidly into size 14's now which hasn't happened for years!! They're still a bit tight so I'm waiting for a couple of weeks to buy new stuff for our Canada holiday.....can't wait!!
