I am so glad that the days are getting longer again … there is something energising about the longer days and the days of gloom and just wanting to come home and chill are disappearing as the sunlight stretches the days!

This is the view from my office … I should be writing a Eulogy at the moment but my head is elsewhere … so I have decided to stop writing and go back to it later, after I have been up to Perth for a couple of funerals and a family visit.

I didn’t manage to fit in time for the gym or swimming yesterday and unlikely I will today so I am going to do a double session on Saturday and Sunday … it is funny how something like exercising creeps under your skin … 6 months ago I would have laughed if you had told me I would become an exercise freak … but I am really enjoying it.

Tomorrow my problem with finding time for the gym will ease as I am converting my summerhouse into a mini gym … the last piece of equipment has arrived and will be set up tomorrow … so when my time is short I can always just pop out to the summerhouse for half an hour, sadly I don’t have a swimming pool but hey ho … you can’t have everything in life!
