Oh joy - got up in the hills today. Muddy at the bottom (gained about an inch in height - much appreciated) but dry on top. Gorgeous morning and lovely scenic hike ;)?
Sounds fab TC, I'm sticking to the gym till spring. :D

Not been doing much walking and don't mention the c25k. Been busy doing gym classes though so hopefully I'll be a bit fitter and can lose a few (loads) kilos.

Anyone been out?

Hi Ruby,TC .

Been out for a few walks . Yesterday was a nice morning to take the dogs out ,although junior dog gets under my feet . I got him a new lead ,one of those fishing rod type ones . He’s mostly on short lead but I can let them off lead in the fields a bit .

Hope it’s a nice day .

Hi there Pickles, Ruby and TC <:)>

Hurry up spring, there are a few signs its on its way.

I've been having some walks at the weekend with my collie and a friend's two dogs. One is an Australian shepherd with one eye. He's a real cutie.

Hopefully it will be dry on Sunday when we take them around the local nature reserve.

Hope all are well xxx

Glad to hear yous guys are getting good weather and managing to get out for walks. ;)? It pretty cold and miserable here but hoping to get a short walk in at the weekend. Still enjoying the gym and lost a miniscule amount of weight. :?

I saw that the snowdrops are up now, they just need to flower, roll on spring. :D

Have a great weekend guys. (::)

Wow, that's early for daffodils and your walk sounds lovely ;)? It was a lovely day at my sister's too, didn't manage any running or yoga while I've been away but had some lovely walks, albeit short. The snowdrops were in full bloom too.

Hi pickles, Nicky, Spats, hope you've been making the most of the good weather. ;)?

Last Sunday’s walk was a bit muddy to start but eventually ok but became quite steep ;) , struggled a bit... well a lot actually ()o Think tomorrow’s walk will be called off due to the storm coming through. Still there are two more arranged for next week: Chatsworth and Macclesfield.

It's been snowing here on and off all day, my car's in the garage, hoping they can fix it, I'm paying almost half it's value in repairs and the mot is due next month but I really need a car.

Got my car fixed, I'm home now and there's not as much snow here but the drive home wasn't fun.

Hope you're all cosied up in front of the fire. I'm going nowhere. :D

Managed a couple of walks today (without getting too wet and wind blown).

Hope others are able to get out and about too ;)?
