Anyone stuck in work and wishing they where out in that nice weather ?
Driving is a nightmare.....too cold with the air con on, can't turn it off because it's too hot, open the window and get lorry fumes.....all through the lakes when I'd rather be IN one of the lakes
No no still being good Bekkie lost 6pound in the last two weeks , how are you going on?
Well done Flumpy, that's fab I didn't lose anything this week, am bit gutted (well a lot gutted) but will keep at it, I'm upping the swimming next week.
Ha ha Orchid, yes I know what you mean, the Lake sound nice and refreshing
I've swam in lake Windermere....but that's another story
You always loose a lot at first then it slows down unfortunately, but keep it up Orchid you will get there, I've been going Legs,tums and bums, ha I couldn't walk for a week!, this week was better tho
Oh yes OL.........well we're all ready and listening........you've started......so.....
I was at the salt mines in this heat today, and i know where i'd rather be.......and if the weather changes once i've finished i shall stamp my feet and sulk
Well I'm driving to Scotland tomorrow
Not tonight Lily and it's boring really
Flumpy, I did TB&T on Monday night, muscles only just better, I had to cancel yoga on Tuesday because I couldn't move enough to do it but did manage spinning last night and swimming twice. I'm hoping next week will be easier I can feel by body toning up which I'm please with.
Well done OL you should be proud of yourself, hey they say no pain no gain
I always used to go off to a special place for mid summer, when i was younger. They were magical places and times.
Yes it sounds like myth but its not.
Fishing in the woods ( fishing in the Nature reserve that i was a bouncer for, for many years) Glastonbury tor, before the main event (stone henge was just a big let down and) Avebury Henge was the same.
Let me stroll over Rannock Moor and descend into the depths of Glen Coe anyday at any month, even with the midge. This has to be the most. deep, dark and intimidating place in the world.
A bit like finding mushrooms in Worthy farm!!!! or lightening in Guei on the Cat\atumbo river Venezuele. I could not believe these places existed. 4,000 lightening strikes a hour was too much to believe for me.
I was proved wrong.
Still dumb struck, with that. Glastonbury was not fare behind. ( 8 years never paid. suited me. 2 week before and 2 week after. Its too commercial now )
Thats what I told myself when I woke up on Tuesday morning Flumpy
We appear to have digressed from the OP again....oops
Sounds fab Edd Could you use the mushrooms you found at Worthy Farm
Oh Edd I'm with you on Glencoe!! I first went there aged 10 back in the sensational 70s. I think Alfred Wainwright called it a 'glacial defile' or something. Its a very intense place and not just because of its infamous massacre.The mountains seem to close in on you and I think I'm right in saying its the wettest place in the British Isles at 100" of rain a year
Not sure about the weather facts Fishy65 but i first went down in a car, just before a thunder storm. It is a dank dark place that grabs you from within. You said intents and that is the word for it. It gets my heckles up every time i think of the place.
Never did drive back through it. Walked (WHW) from the door step in Milngavie and back and done so many ridges there that you would think i was born there. I even fell of a frozen stream on Glencoe north face with ice axe and crampons but that is another story.
The whole place connects with me, not sure why.
If you want a good laugh try the visitor centre at the top.(it might have changed and i hope it has) Its a embarrassment to Scotland.
PS. VIRGIN MEDIA has been off for the last 40 mins so i appologise for them
As I was saying, the height of summer has arrived and I was wondering which plants signal the end of summer.
Yes, Verdun, our first summer's day yesterday and it's raining now!
Still it brings the colour out in the garden.
