The Large Cloud Over Our House

A large cloud descended over our house this morning. No, I don't mean the lovely weather we have been enjoying has come to an end. What I mean is, this week I haven't lost any weight!! The lovely pound I lost last week hasn't been matched this time around.  Therefore, the big sunny smile that usually finds its way to my face on a Sunday morning, has deserted me this week.
So it means that I will have to get back onto the Wii and do a few more exercises. I was forced to give up a couple of weeks ago when I tore a calf muscle. I could barely walk two steps, let alone leap on and off the platform like a maniac possessed. But obviously it was helping me to lose weight, so back to the aerobics this coming week - poorly leg or not!  It has been warned!!

Last Tuesday we went to the Barn at Beal for lunch. It was a beautiful day and the views across to Holy Island from the restaurant are really stunning.   If you have never tried The Barn at Beal and find yourself in the area, you should give it a whirl.

Tomorrow evening I am going to the Cross Keys to listen to a talk given by Sally Magnussan. I gather a few others from the village are going, so it should be a fun evening. I'm sure a few glasses of wine will be involved in the proceedings.

Apart from that, I think it is going to be another quiet week. However, you never know what is likely to turn up. I could win the lottery, or the premium bonds. My turn must be coming up very soon, so why not next week??

I hope the sun is shining down on you,

  2. Best of luck with the excercise thing, Eileen! It really does make a difference when you get into it... It's just frustrating when you get injuries and problems. Keep going!

  3. Thanks Pat. I have just done 40 mins Aerobics on the Wii.
