Hi TC . I had a nice walk with younger dog yesterday, in the fields . We are starting to call her Mrs. Grumble though , as we think she’s either feeling her age , weather , or missing older dog as well . She also makes these grumble sounds when annoyed I can’t take her out each day .

It’s nice weather here too , might try a short one .

I'm fair jealous of your nice weather and lovely walks, it's blowing a gale here with driving rain. Was meant to go to the gym but here I am in spoons ordering a steak, least it's a skinny one. Hum ho, better luck tomorrow.

Ha! I think it's just the large geographical 'area' that we call Scotland, Sandy. I know that you and I don't live terribly close but it's exactly the same where I am as it is for you and Ruby - it's been blowing a real hooley here since this morning :shock: Roll on summer. When the weather's like this, I (almost) begin to miss the midges ;) :lol:

\:)/ to Pickles, TC, Nicky and JJ123 and all! I'm jealous of your walks too :)

Aww, sorry to hear that, TC <:)>

I'm sure the weather will improve for us all. Probably not until late April, but still... (w) :lol:

Hi All, the weather here is still pretty awful so I've resorted to going to gym classes, a 30 min HIIT class today, my legs are still wobbly but I did enjoy it.

How's everyone else doing, have you been getting half decent weather?

Pleased to hear you enjoyed the gym Ruby.

Was fine today so I had a good hike along the seafront. Lovely sea air and the aroma of Harry Ramsden's waffing into the nostrils :D

Been told it’s the easy route we’re taking, don’t know which that is.
Walking group is really picking up. Doing 2 walks/month on Sundays and now 2 others Wednesday and/or Friday. Some are local about 3hrs, others longer about 4hrs and further away. Can’t do them all though.

Done it 3 times in my much younger days. They’re now looking at the Brecon Beacons (Mid Wales) and the Lakes. Never been to the Brecons but done many a walk round the Lakes and mountain.

They all sound great spats, I don't think I'll ever be fit enough to take on a challenge like that, good luck with it.

Walk this weekend in Derbyshire peaks - only about 3 hrs though. Staffs and Derbys peaks aren’t too far away and loads of walks there. The group seem to have 2-3 walks a week lined up so hope to be able to get on a good few over the next month or so
