Reminders

Today I have beautiful flowers around the house to remind me of my recent birthday and a delightful lunch shared with family and dear friends.  I thank my daughter-in-law and son for organising it for me.  


I don't really need the reminders that I'm older.  My bones are telling me today.  Here's a tip for other seniors who belong to a gym - don't let a 20 year old who thinks you are wonderful for your age re-write your exercise programme.  It's damn near killing me and I'm too pig headed to tell her.  

I much prefer my Monday Tai Chi class.  That's a much more civilised way to exercise and, having exerted ourselves, we all then have lunch together at this place with the windows wide open to catch any breeze.


I need a nap.

  7. Hope you had a good one Pauline! the flowers are gorgeous. Ha! I fall in a heap when I'm done with my circuit at the gym, but not until I reach my car. Pride dictates that I strut out of there like I"ve not an ache anywhere! -groan-

  14. I. Too, am glad that you had a good birthday. On the subject of the gym one of the things I loved about 1-to-1 in Napier was the fact that they started you off at a level that didn't put you off and gently worked you up so that you hardly noticed. When I used to return after 6 months away I would realise just how much I had even pushed the previous year and ho much I had to build up all over again.
