I started out last week with such optimism. Monday, I got up early and decided to make the walk to work, leave the car at home, be good, face the cold and feel refreshed. It is a 40 minute work to and from and so will be an hour and twenty minutes walk a day. It was a bit frosty and I had to watch where I walked but it was lovely to get out in the fresh air and it did feel refreshing as hoped. I was a bit shakey when I got to work and also in the last stretch walking home but it was good. Tuesday, I was able to walk again as the weather was still OK. However Wednesday to Friday the snow came big time and everything was thrown off. Without any wellies, wasn't sure if I could make it through the snow in flat shoes!! So out came the car...hoping the big thaw will come this week so I can get back to my master plan again.
We pick up our puppy on the 23rd. We are getting a curly coated retriever from my in-laws who show and breed them. He is a gorgeous little chap. Harry has named him Sam after the characted in 'Lord of the Rings'. He did want to choose between Bilboa and Frodo, but I didn;t fancy shouting that out as a recall !! So, starting the 25th, I will be cycling to work and back so that I can walk him during my lunch hour. Not sure how this is going to work out, but hopefully it will do us both the good.
Today, as I look out, we still have a snow covered garden. There are lots of birds out thereperched on the many trees surrounding our house. It looks pretty. I'd like to look on the RSPB site for some tips on feeding the birds, but we have 4 cats next door.
Oh well, off to face a mountain of ironing and a day of spongebob...
