A really lovely couple of days with Ros after her return from holiday with her aunt.   She even enjoyed the roast beef dinner I cooked yesterday (have to admit … it was quite good!)

Today we spent sometime at the gym … Ros in the steam room, me in the pool! then had a fabulous lunch (bang went my diet for today!)…

Good fun, good laughs, good times …

Geared up …

Busy day … writing done …. off to view a caravan storage facility for my caravan (it takes up far too much parking space!) … a family visit … then home to cook a roast beef dinner for Ros returning from her holiday from Arran!

She has pre warned me that she has picked up a few wee gifts from me … I know one of them is cheese! … it better not be mouldy or smelly stuff … ungrateful as it sounds, it will have to go straight into the bin (outside!) … I canny stand the stuff and it makes me (as we say in Scotland) .. BOKE!

Seemingly, we are also putting my hair into a mohican to match hers! … whoever would of thought I would be dating a woman with a mohican … but I will go along with it (knowing it will wash out tomorrow morning when I have a shower!) … she has also suggested I dye it pink … ehhh nawww!!  step too far!

Tomorrow I am introducing Ros to my gym … we are going for a swim and then a nice lunch …  she is seriously considering joining my gym … what the auld wifies will make of a tattooed mohican haired laughing woman I have no idea … I think it will be great!

I believe: A Birth Certificate shows that we were born; A Death Certificate shows that we died; Pictures show that we lived! Have a seat . . Relax . And now read this slowly.

I believe – That just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do.

I believe – That we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe – That no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I believe – That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I believe – That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I believe – That it’ s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe – That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I believe – That you can keep going long after you think you can’t.

I believe – That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I believe – That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I believe – That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I believe – That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe – That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I believe – That sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

I believe – That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.

I believe – That it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself. I believe – That no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn’t stop for your grief.

I believe – That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I believe – Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I believe – That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.

I believe – That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you – you will find the strength to help.

I believe – That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I believe – That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

I believe – . The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

A busy weekend ahead …

I have decided that the caravan is taking up too much room in my car parking space … and have discovered that spaces are available at the top end of my village for storage … good price too! … so I am off there tomorrow morning to have a week look at what is available before I head to a family visit.

Ros has been over in Arran all week on holiday with her aunt … but she is home tomorrow and I have promised to cook dinner (eeeek!!) … and on Sunday we are off to Picture of Health (my gym) for a swim and then a lunch at the restaurant at the Keavil… Ros is considering joining my gym too … and it would be great to be able to exercise together… although at the moment, for Ros, it will just have to be a little exercise when she is able.

It is funny how sometimes you meet someone in life who really does understand you.   I am not always able to do what I want to do (although to be fair, my back is much better, it is only my arthritis that bugs me now … and that is not that often!) … and Ros is much the same … we joke that together we have one fully fit body between us … perhaps that is true!

I am looking forward to seeing her tomorrow … it is wonderful to have someone who can make you laugh and who you can be completely open and honest with … and get the same in return!  It makes a nice change!


Good at love?

I have a lovely quiet week workwise this week … I don’t often have them, so I treasure the times when I can just doodle around as I feel …

Ros is away on holiday to Arran with her aunt until Saturday, so I thought I would make the most of my time by catching up with all the little jobs needing done … I have turned my spare room into a dvd/sports room (got rid of the bed and bought a sofa bed) … and also a room where I can practice my yoga and pilates … which I decided to do today ….

… well … that was the plan …

Sprout decided yoga looked fun … I had to give up in the end


In your own heart…

It has taken me a while… but I am happy again…

My back is no longer giving me constant pain. My weight has dropped by two stone, I am loving being able to exercise and swim again (and improving all the time) and I have a very lovely new lady in my life.

It is early days yet but so far everything is going really well… we laugh, we talk and she gives fabulous cuddles!

Time will tell whether we have a future together… but For now I will just enjoy the company of Ros.

First target reached!

Leave a comment

My first weight target was to lose 2 stone … tonight I achieved that  (although I must admit to being a bit surprised after I had Scampi, Chips and cake with Ros yesterday!).

My next target is 3 stone … and if I keep going as Im going .. I should get that in about 6 weeks… so by the end of May I will hopefully reach it!

My date went better than I had hoped… I have met a woman who is open and honest and admits to being impatient and grumpy at times (sounds like me!)

We had a lovely day together “a quick coffee” turned out to be all day… and we are meeting again on Wednesday… and I’m really looking forward to it. Perhaps this time I have found some true, sober and loyal… I guess time will tell!
