I was very excited to see a notice up at the gate of the park announcing that Pilates would be starting in my Village Hall. I used to go to Pilates every week for years after having Alfie and it was a great way of toning and strengthening muscles. I felt very fit and healthy and my posture was good. I believe it held me in good stead during my last pregnancy as I had no problems with my back at all. So I signed myself and Jasmine up for a 3 week course that started tonight. It was great. I am so happy to be doing some exercise again as I have done nothing since having Lizzy. I had to get in touch with my core and become aware of my pelvic floor, an area that has been neglected of late! We plan to walk there and back next week.
I am off to Exeter tomorrow to get my hair done. My roots need doing badly and the new grey growth is scaring me. Why do the grey ones grow so much faster and stick up in the air. Why oh why are they CURLY?!! I can't wait to visit the new Starbucks that we saw being refitted on our last visit, oh I know, I'm just a sad old country bumpkin but it's the small pleasures in life. Mostly I am looking forward to being away from here and the demands of an overgrown child who needs sooooo much attention. Have you ever tried giving a grown man with a broken leg a bath in a double ended slipper bath? It's not easy believe me. He enjoyed it rather more than I did!! I'm shattered. He has me making cups of tea all day long, elaborate lunches, things need to be fetched and carried and administered on a regular basis. I wasn't cut out to be a nurse.
