NOT eating.....

I found some random walk pics from May.  As you can see, they are a little out of date as the lambs are still only babies and we're wearing fleeces...well, maybe that last one is not so relevant given the weather we're having.  It's not exactly June-like is it?

These were taken above Hathersage near Stanage Edge and Lees hall.  One of my favourite short walks - it only takes an hour but there are fields, a wood and stream, a ruined papermill and chapel, the the looming rocks of Stanage Edge and then Lees Hall itself.


Doggie on a Rock!


 The view down towards Hathersage.






Although it was sunny - we had to keep our speed up to avoid the imminent thunder storm.



The Hall is let out as a holiday let  by the Vivat Trust I believe.  I'm sure it costs a packet but what a building and what a setting!


It was a struggle after Zumba last night to haul myself back out onto the golf course this morning but I'm glad I did.  We were first out and sailed round in 3 hours.  It is called Millionaire Golf - when you have no-one in front of you and no-one behind.  We saw hardly anyone else on the course although it was busy by the time we got back to the clubhouse.

I played well but let a few too many go on the greens so my score was only okay rather than good.  I cracked my driver last week ( it is dead now) so was playing with what I hope will become my new driver and I LOVE it!  I didn't hit a bad shot with it all the way round.  Yay - happiness is a secondhand Ping G10!

On the diet front, I am exercising restraint.  Wouldn't it be nice if you lost weight by NOT eating stuff.  I mean if you got "credit" for not eating things which you wanted to eat??  I almost ate a Magnum bar today, almost had toast or cereals for breakfast, a glass of wine at lunch, a chocolate bar during my round of golf.  But managed to turn down or put away all of the above..  Heroic!  Instead, I had bacon and egs for breakfast, leftover sausage and butterbean casserole and rice/salad for lunch (hardly any sausage left in it - mostly just the veggie/bean casserole) and strawberries with yoghurt instead of the desired Magnum.

Honestly - that Magnum is becoming a trial.  I bought it weeks ago - before we went on holiday and they have been sitting in the freezer calling to me ever since.

I'm off out to take the dogs for a walk now and then some appointments later on so my day off is not going to be a lazy one.

Mmm,love a Magnum - especially the one with the oozy caramel layer in between two chocolate layers.

I definitely think you should get credit for things you turn down. Mind you, if only that were true, I'd be a sylph. Alas...

Hi Lesley!

My name is Hannah and I’m contacting you from Pedigree about your gorgeous pooches! We noticed you have an older dog so I thought I’d get in touch and see if you would be interested. It's completely free and there's no hidden catches, we’d simply love for you to share your experience with your community as we’re keen to see what dog owners such as yourself think of the product.

Pedigree Joint Care+ helps to ease joint stiffness, which becomes more common as dogs get older. We’d like to send you 6 weeks’ worth of tasty Joint Care+ treats as well as a fantastic goodie bag, packed full of fun things to help keep your dogs entertained.

What’s more, those undertaking the Joint Care+ trial have the opportunity to attend some very special Pedigree Play Again events happening around the country in August. Take a look at the Pedigree Joint Care+ Play Again video to see what you can enjoy at the events and visit the Facebook page for photos of what went on at the first set of #playagain events in May. Search for the #playagain hash tag on twitter and you can also see all the fun other triallists are having!

If you are interested in taking part in this trial then get in touch and I’ll send you more information shortly. My e-mail is hannah (at) uk (dot) pedigree (dot) com.
