Today I took the tablets, did some ironing, acted the taxi, cooked a meal, was cat slave at the back door for our mog and generally kept myself busy today.
Did go out for a nice walk. One of the old paths I remember being a bit grotty and muddy to walk through, has been properly surfaced. It made it a very pleasant walk. A lot of old scrub has been torn down too, and now you can see into some fantastic back gardens.
I know that it’s terrible to be nosy, but be honest, who doesn’t look when they can? Some of those gardens are just lovely – really beautiful. And a lot of them are longer than they look from the front of the houses. Rather jealous in a couple of cases. I may have been pottering with bedding plants and the like, but I’m not a good gardener. More a minimum doer because I have to.
The walk was a good hour though, and at a reasonable pace (for someone who vaguely remembers exercise). At least I got up the hill without collapsing, that’s a bonus. Though I have to say my legs are rather achy tonight, in a good way.
Recent attempts at getting back into exercise fell at the hurdle of technology. I know I must do better, or as a friend of my told me on messenger – grab it by the throat and get on with it. Maybe tomorrow. Tonight I’m having a glass of wine (only one), then going to bed.
Also, had some bad news today. An anthology I was a part of has been dropped by the publisher. Shame, I really liked that story. So much so, it may become a new stand alone novel or at least a novella.
