I sat and looked at this scene spread out on that old table while I was waiting for our motivational talk. I'm sure people wondered why I would want to take a photo of that.
I don't know why but it reminded me of something from yesteryear. I never, ever, thought I'd be sitting in a room of folk all trying to lose weight. I would never have walked through the door only for my neighbour asking me to go along with her.
When I was younger I vowed I would never put on any weight - that was what happened to other people, not me. But those extra pounds creep on gradually. To me it shows a lack of discipline.
Well, now they're creeping off gradually and I'm quite liking this weight loss programme. I'm aiming for the 1 stone goal at weigh-in next Tuesday. I don't want to keep coming back and looking at that old table.... and that's my motivation.

Lady Dixon park ..again!

I've been going to Lady Dixon Park for at least 40 years now but never been through this wooded area that takes you round the outskirts of the park.

Pleased with a snap of this young magpie..a bit blurred

and some weird fungus

loved the yellow buttercups in amongst the greens

but the highlight of the year here is rose week in July

and that means yet another visit!!
