  • Just wanted to say “hello”

    Hi, my name is Janet. I am 54 and live in North Ayrshire. I love walking, hill walking (although still rather slow). Hoping to start getting out very soon now lockdown seems to be on the way out.
    Hope you have all got through the last 12 months the best you can and lets hope good times are not to far away.

      Hi there

      I love walking too and also cannot wait to be back out in the world. Yes let’s hope for the good times to arrive very soon.
      Wishing you a beautiful day! 😊

      Hi Janet, opposite end of the country here but enjoy walking as well. I think there are few things more life affirming and healing than getting out into the countryside. Can’t wait for the restrictions to be lifted!

        Hi Colin, ohh I bet your weather has been great this week…. we got a tropical 11/12degrees Friday & Saturday!! Agree, it’s good for the mind & soul

        • Reply by Colin in Kent

          Tropical?? Ha well it’s very up and down, I don’t think things have settled yet. Yesterday beautiful and sunny, too hot for coats. Today… freezing!

          Same here, was minus one when I went my walk this morning…….

          Winter’s last gasp hopefully. Think it’s going to be a pretty grey week but won’t let that get me down too much. I mostly enjoy walking in all weathers, but first thing in the morning is a struggle.

          Our weather isn’t looking to great for the week either, but I’ll still get out as much as I can. Hope you have a good day & walk if you manage to get out later.

          And you Janet! Sun is peeking through here, but have a boardgame challenge booked in with my wife later this afternoon so that’s the rest of the day sorted 🙂

          She thought I was going to look at her cards when she left the room, but the thought didn’t even occur to me! I should have done, I might not have lost…!

      Hi Jackie, do you manage to get much walking done? Where do you go? In & around Lancashire/Cheshire?

      Hello Janet, I prefer to swim , walking is fine but it depends on the company !!! Swimming is relaxing for me !!

    • Reply by JanetP

      Hi Sonny, that’s great, do you do wild swimming?

    • Reply by Tonyh

      • Reply by JanetP

        That’s a shame, once the pools are back open you should try & book some lessons, it will do you the world of good. 🙂

        Hi, thank you 🙂 hope you are well

      Hi Janet and welcome.
      I too love walking. I am very close to a lovely wood and a short drive to a beach. Love both but the beach is my favourite but takes more effort. The woods is best for my dogs when it is hot or I time walking along the prom earlier or later in the day.
      I am sooooo looking forward to 21 June with my fingers and everything else crossed.

        Sounds lovely, same here, can’t come quick enough! Hope you are having a good day. 🙂

          Hi Janet.
          My day ended up expensive. My car needed new front brake discs and pads and an oil change. Still that’s quite exciting at the moment when I think about it!
          What have you been up to?

    • Reply by JanetP

      Ohh no!! Not the kind of exciting things you need though 🙈 . Well, at least you know it’s road safe for day trips out… not much today, went a good 8 mile walk round the country park where I live before rain came in this afternoon, then read a book
