Personal trainer coming to the house today. I told him to bring the boxing gloves. Arf arf! Need them after carpy day yesterday. Oooooh. All that oxytocin. And fantasies of a bikini body (yup, dream on, but at least the bingo wings are under control!)
I'm having a fundraiser pampered chef cakey morning to raise money for our local autism teens group that Cockle attends once a month. I have a few people coming and have a fab raffle with 24 prizes! I hope to be a chilled hostess and raise £100. That will pay for a few months lunches and cookery stuff for them. They are such lovely people and Cockle is made to feel very welcome so I am so happy to support them.
I am in the tortuous process of redoing our wills such a soul less exercise but have started on a list of things I am/have been grateful for - it is already a long list and is giving me a huge amount of pleasure as I have added to it - definitely helps having "an attitude of gratitude" - just thinking about all the nice things is giving me a spring in my step...
Mum to DS ( 30 and a spell in his 20s living with bm on, off, on) and DD late 20's and newly independent - phew ) ...and still standing!!
Went to the cinema with Cockle on Saturday to watch mr Peabody and Sherman - I cried all the way through, very cathartic! He even sat still the whole length of the film, I was amazed and so proud of him.

Ridden out again and had to jump off a five bar gate as huge horse wouldn't stand still whilst I was balancing trying to get back on. Also survived a gallop that was led and decided by same horse. All very energising and nothing like having a story to tell when you get back! Transport issues? Attachment difficulties? All forgotten on a two hour survival ride :-D
Mum to AS Big Fish (15) and AS Little Minnow (10) and now a new horse who will let me escape from kids with attitude and the drudgery of disability services!
Spinning, combat? Hm, I thought this was about what you have done for yourselves not punishment.
For what it is worth, I lay in the garden on the grass for 20 mins, closed my eyes and nodded off (well almost). I know you hate Peppa with a vengeance, Serrakunda, but there are times when Peppa is invaluable. All thanks to a good wireless signal and a laptop that is used to being popped on a small table in the shade.

Well it wasn't today and it wasn't time on my own, but DH and I went to the theatre on Saturday. We went to a matinee performance of 'Handbagged' which was very funny and very clever also reminded us of our youth! (it's about the relationship between Maggie Thatcher and the Queen)
I do something for myself EVERY day as I am an avid reader. But I'm not sure that my choice of reading matter is very relaxing , for example the book I just finished ...'Ice Cream in the Cupboard, a true story of early onset Alzheimers'
