Hope it cleared up for you today TC, it was nice here eventually, didn't manage a walk but went to a circuit class instead.

Walk round the lake again today - at a very fast pace too so as to catch up with the others ()o
Weigh in - half pound off ;)? Slowly chipping away
Pilates tonight - just about finished me
Didn’t feel like cooking, nor did I want takeaway as it would have been too heavy on the tum - ended up cooking but only took 20 minutes :D
Feel absolutely shattered as was up at 5am :o

Lovely day for a walk today, but I had to wait in. Did manage to get an early hour's walk in the autum sunshine though which was really nice after all the rain we've been having. Got to wait in for the rest of the day now too as roof has sprung a leak (panic stations). Roofer has been and hopes to sort out the problem (bung a cork in it) :lol: later.

Walk booked for Sunday in the Manifold Valley! Don’t know how far or how long but I’ll try to keep up with them ()o it’s with the new walking group I’ve found - not met them yet though. Looking forward to it. Not sure if there’s a pub lunch involved either but as I’m driving and it’s probably about an hours journey I won’t be drinking ;)?

Looks lovely Spats. Hope you enjoy it ;)?

Managed to get a good walk in today before the heavens opened (again). At least my roof is watertight again now ;)?

Enjoy your walk on Sunday spats, hope the weather's fine.

Glad you got a good walk TC and got back before the rain.

We had a lovely walk today and saw 2 roe deer, I'm too technically challenged to upload a photo.

Shadow, have you managed to get out walking?

Pleased to hear your roof is fixed TC, we don't want you sat inside with brolly up having your cuppa ! Great you got a walk in too :) <:)>

The fallen autumn leaves seem more beautiful than ever atm. I really appreciate having such a lovely park close by and have walked through it a few times on my way to and from work.

Spats i hope your walk turns out well tomorrow for you xx

Sounds lovely Nicky - I'm sooooooo jealous :mrgreen: Just love the lakes. My grandad used to take me walking there when I was young. It was his love of nature and walking that set the seed for me really.

How lovely. Used to see a lot of deer where I used to live. Such very shy creatures. I came face to face with a Bambi one day. Rounded a corner and there it was. We both stood completely still and just looked at each other. I gently backed away and then Bambi made a run for it.

Hope you enjoy your walk Spats ;)?

Dry/sunny day is forecast \:)/

Sounds great TC, hope you have a lovely time with your walking group shadow. ;)?

Had a lovely walk in the sunshine, Its not really rural where we walk, Jim's just great at spotting wildlife, it was an otter today.

How'd it go today Spats?

It was a lovely day here but I was a lazy sod, couldn't get myself out of bed to walk (part way) to my volunteering. :?

How's everyone else doing?

Well, yesterday I walked into town by road (4 miles), walked down to and along the seafront (another couple of miles), walked round getting shopping and then walked to the bus stop ()o Must admit, staying in bed would have been very nice indeed though ;) <:)>

Good stuff TC ! The weather has been sunny for a couple of days so i took the dog for a longer walk today (he was walking better). Also had a nice walk on the seafront with daughter yesterday which was really pleasant ;)?

I spoke to a chap from the walking group today and i will be doing 6/7 mile walks to begin with on some Saturdays. The Sunday walks are more strenuous and longer. I reckon TC would be better at those than me, she has an adventurous streak and is fitter, lol :D

Hope all have had a good day, and hope it is a dry one tomorrow xx

Thanks for the flattery Nicky, but I'm getting too old for the strenuous stuff now. I prefer a steady plod these days :lol:
