    I was told that walking was the best exercise to do. It's free and if you buy a good coat you cna go out in all weathers. I love the fact you can walk in your apartment in the bad weather. I might live in a big house but with the furniture its rather small. I either need to throw some things out and the people with it, or move somewhere smaller and then make them get rid of their rubbish. 6 rooms all crammed with life.

    Oh and a dog that likes to rip up paper. You find it where you least expect it

    Morning folks

    It's cold here but dry. Debating whether to put the washing on the line or not. I love the smell of line dried washing, even in the good old Black Country where the air is polluted with wonderful herbal cigarettes, bonfires and car engines. (As an aside I think I'll do a lottery ticket, might just be my day)

    I have granddaughter number 1 with me. No school so being treated to various computer games and the constant dialogue of what she is doing.

    Car going into the garage to be fixed. Just have to wait for the call to say it's there.

    After that will be time to go walking Freddie and taking Hayleigh to play in the adventure park.

    Time to finsh my book? Who knows. Only 150 pages to go

    enjoy your day

    Beautiful day here in the Midlands.

    Done the laundry, its on the line.

    Off to a neighbouring town today for a few things I need (well that's what I told hubby). And a browse amongst the shops. Bet I come home with yet more books :rolleyes:. Just ordered another 6 off the Internet. :nailbiting:

    Having a Chinese takeaway for tea. Yummy.

    Enjoy your day folks.

    @Cumberland how's things going with Wispa?
    @Clivethedrive hope tings are better for you today. I understand some protestors are in Edinburgh today.

    Well on Tuesday I was walking Wispa and I lost my balance fell over and sprained my ankle

    I limped home

    Later around 8 I fell at home I felt very hot and sick, this time I really hurt my ankle so got a taxi to A&E to get it checked out, thankfully no broken bones but since Tuesday I’ve just had a few very short walks with Wispa

    Little Wispa is so perceptive she cottoned on that I was unwell and didn’t want to leave my side

    How are you dear Wolfie?
    Hoping you have a nice Easter weekend

    Hi Cumberland

    I'm sorry to hear that you have been in the wars. I hope you are resting your ankle as much as you can. You may find that Wispa is content with a couple of walks around the garden (unless you have a small box yard)

    And I'm all well and good to be fair. Not heard anything from the GP or perhaps consultant but I guess with the problems in the NHS I could be waiting a few months.

    I'm looking forward to tomorrow as my youngest daughter and her fiance will be here for lunch along with the granddaughters. Our latest way of keeping the girls occupied is to play hide and seek around the house and garden. Cute watching the youngest one covering her eyes saying 'hide, hide' and then come looking for you. I've been racking my brains for new hiding places to keep the older girl stimulated.

    All good in wolfie's house.

    You enjoy the weather Cumberland. Get some sun on your skin and think of the vitamin D coursing through your body.

    Take care

    Easter Blessings to one and all

    Another beautiful day here in the Midlands. Washing already done and been on the line for a couple of hours. I'm now looking to the bedrooms to strip beds to stick out too. I dont know a woman looking for laundry.

    I'm going to be busy today. Have to walk Freddie so just deciding whether to use nature reserve by our home or the one about 4 miles away which gets extremely busy.

    Also with the good weather I think now is the time to start spring cleaning so will start that later on.

    And I'm going to brave the out of town retail park as there is a dvd I want and is missing from my collection. Will probably brave that after I have put the curry in to cook.

    And this evening might have a cheeky gin and tonic, or two.

    Enjoy your day

    Bit overcast here. Might go shut the door as it has gone a little bit cold now. We are due rain and thunderstorms so we shall see what the day brings.

    I'm home alone later on today. Hubby and son off to visit the inlaws and I'm going to sit on my posterior and watch tv or finish the book I'm reading. Im itching to get my fingers and nose into a book I bought last week.

    Off to diet class tonight. Havent been for a month with one illness or another. Get back on the right train and see if I can shift some of this weight around my stomach. (I cnat do sit ups so thats not an idea either). Any ideas on belly fat though is more than welcome.

    You all enjoy your day, whatever it brings
