I is for Incentive!

We have been making the most of the wonderful weather - hence my absence. Saturday saw us tootle down to Harrogate to see Dorothy and Keith, Sunday we went to a bikers cafe near Leeds. Today we went to Barnard Castle.....where I was measured up for my new bike leathers. My current ones are now far too big, apart from looking a site really they are not all that safe. The armour patches are not stable due to the fit being baggy.
The lady who measured me was very good - obviously she is well experienced and familiar with customers whims etc. She commented on my small hands and feet and used the word petite.........just for my hands and feet I presume!!!!! But it did make me think that whilst I have lost 2 stone I am getting nearer to a more desired weight.....
The leather will be ordered in - the same blue as Jon's and in about 6 weeks the cutting will commence. 6 weeks time the measurements will be checked!
A good opportunity for a determined, focus on achieving a better result. The wine has gone on hold and tomorrow I will commence my fitness regime. I am OK with the diet side of matters - but the keep fit business has to be started!
Watch this space!

Whether the Weather!

Whether the weather be fine,

Or whether the weather be not,

Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot,

We'll weather the weather

Whatever the weather,

Whether we like it or not!

As we have had some lovely weather this week  I decided it was time to swap our winter duvet for our summer wrong could I have been!

This morning the weather deteriorated and the snow started falling - then laying!
We tootled over the Moors to Jill and Phil's for a cuppa.
Home via Whitby and the inevitable fish and chips!

Did you see snow?

'Better get a bikini,' he replied. 'You'd never get it all in one.'

He's still in intensive care.

View from my Window!

Different window - front of the kitchen!
( Thankyou hens for illustrating a little poem I found!)

Look Back, Around and Ahead

Don't look back with guilt or regret.

Look back with appreciation.

Don't look around to blame or compare.

Look around with admiration and acceptance.

Don't look ahead in fear.

Look ahead with purpose and hope.
