Annie and I go for a post-Christmas walk

Hope you like our hats!

As John Lennon’s lyrics almost said;

‘And so that was Christmas’

This year Christmas seemed to come and go very quickly.

I am not sure if it is a feature of advancing years but I have struggled this week to remember which day of the week it is. I now realise it is Friday and I have not posted anything on Simplicity Blog since last Sunday.

Annie and I spent much of the Christmas time in the house relaxing and generally 'chilling out' as my children would say – I’m still not quite sure what that means exactly.

Today Annie persuaded me it would be a good idea for us to get some exercise. So we decided to go for a walk. We donned our waterproofs and went for a lovely walk of about 4 miles in continuous rain. We stopped half way for a well deserved glass of red wine in a local pub. Unsurprisingly we met only one other person out for a walk in the entire 4 miles. After the walk we decided a chicken and mushroom pie and chips from our chippie in the village was a good idea.

We’ve made a pledge that exercise is going to be a high priority for us both in 2008. I need to lose 28 pounds.

We hope to run our first half-marathon in 2008 and we still have an ambition to run our first marathon in 2009.

I hope everyone who visits Simplicity Blog had a terrific Christmas and I guess we now have a few more days of disorientation as we head to the New Year Celebrations.

What do you think about New Year resolutions and have you made any yet?

Happy New Year Trevor! I wish you well on your pledge for 2008 - mine is to continue my quest for what I call "centeredness", an uncluttering of my mind and spirit. All the best!

Hi Terry - good luck with 'uncluttering your mind' - I like that!

Simplifying things to the understandable and manageable is always a challenge. Have a great year!
