Size 8

Not an original idea, I know, but I joined our local gym yesterday.

They have a gym and swim package, which also includes classes. The swimming option will be useful for when Jenny and I get to the pool, and the gym will be me-time. It’s been a while since I was at the gym.


I had the gym induction this afternoon and although it wasn’t full-on, I suspect there will be ache-age tomorrow, and I don’t mean for the personal trainer.

In order to balance activity with couch potato-ing, this evening I’m watching a repeat of The Great British Bake Off. Inspiring, and tempting. That could definitely lead me astray. More reason to make the gym a regular outing.

Self-portrait in weird location

I couldn’t resist this excessively shiny black floor as a medium for a self-portrait.


Scooter self-portrait


My reflection can be spotted somewhere in the shininess of Jenny’s helmet.

She wanted to scoot up and down the road, and I thought I’d use the opportunity to whip out my camera.

I took a couple of these too.


Rather delightedly, I discovered my reflection in one of the berries too (third from the left in the main/front bunch).


On the doorstep


Sometimes, my friend K doesn’t hear the doorbell. I usually have to call her on her mobile to get her to answer the door.
