Project 366 week 8

Made an appointment for Skills Development for next week, coping with one thing a day is enough at the moment and had other things on on the days they had available. Have said to work that I am forward thinking and doing this and they agree it is a good idea just in case. Made up a start to a basic CV but realise it needs to be different for every job I apply for depending on what the job description says.


The day dawned dry and sunny but with rather a strong wind so we decided to go for a walk along the cycle path rather than along the beach as we knew that would be rather unpleasant with the cold wind. We did 3.5 miles and home just before the rain started.

Still not up to much these days. Just trying not to sit around to much. So another walk round another park.

Deer in Dean Park 


Was rather a showery day on and off but I took the risk taking the dog out, we were both fairly well wrapped up just in case. At one point the sleet/hail was very heavy and driving across the way. Spotted this notice in the entrance to the school where we sheltered out of the rain and sleet.

Had a to do list I keep putting off, so this morning all but one were done. I did phone the last one but there was a queue about 20 mins long so hung up.

Went along to the local afternoon prize bingo that runs in a wee cafe. Went along with DD1, Bob and Spud. Was about 28 of us and the wee cafe was full. Nice to get out for a while, mixing with people and trying to reboot my confidence levels.  I did win one prize and Bob won five. Was a lovely wee afternoon and so informal and fun.

Still not able to be volunteering as a ride leader as still can't use my hands for long enough on the exercise bike to risk going out on a street bike but at least indoors it can be ridden without  hands.

Went along today to an information session highlighting an event that The Active Travel hub are running next month with various work places. Again it got me out and I went for a walk round a  nearby park afterwards before heading home.
The weather varied from snow to sunshine but managed the walk without getting wet.

Had to attend an appointment for an assessment as I have had to sign onto Universal Credit  and they need to satisfy them selves I am genuinely off sick. Here is hoping so cos if the last few months have not been too ill to be at work then I don't know what is.

Flipping heck the wind last night and today was worse than last week end when Dennis was around.

I had applied for these through a blogging opportunity, seemed appropriate with what I have gone though the last few months.

giving it a go

 Started them yesterday so will let you know how I get on. First impression is the capsules are rather large, but if you feel daunted at the though of swallowing them you can open the capsule and spread it on your food.

GOPO® Joint Health is made from 100% specially cultivated natural rose-hip and is the only product of its kind to contain a high level of GOPO® - a key component of the rose-hip which may play a valuable role in the care of joints and joint tissues.
GOPO® was discovered over 20 years ago in Denmark and significant levels can only be obtained if the rose-hips are dried using a special patented process. GOPO® has been available in Denmark for over ten years and has been the subject of several scientific studies.

  1. Good luck with the Skills Development for next week.
    What a lovely view from your walk and so amazing to see the deer's on your next walk.
    It sounds like you've had some awful weather. What a sweet sign at the school. I would rather have nice kids than cooler and smarter kids.
    The bingo sounds like fun! Well done Bob!
    Ugh! I hope the assessment went well with the Universal Credit. They do love to make you jump through all the hoops. I have a meeting with them next week. Yay! lol
    I said the same thing to my fella about the wind being really bad on Friday night, way worse than we had with Storm Dennis.
    Good luck with the joint capsules. x

  2. Lovely to be getting out and about for walks, despite the weather. The deer look really cute, as does the sign at the school. Well done Bob at the bingo - must have been his lucky day ! What did he win ? Hope it all went well at Universal Credit xx

  3. I hope the Universal Credits get sorted for you. Lucky to see some deer on your walk, I only ever see one in the distance from the car if i'm lucky #366

  4. That is good you have been getting out and about. The weather has been awful. The deer is lovely, I do enjoy seeing them out and about. Way to go Bob at Bingo, that is fab. Hope it went well with Universal Credit. And good luck at the skills development xx

  5. Hope the Universal Credit assessment went well, if you need anyone to vouch for you, just show them your blog posts. glad you're still able to ride the indoor bike, handsfree

  6. It sounds like you're making gradual progress with your recovery and it's good that you're making plans for your career just in case going back doesn't work out for you. What lovely photos of the deer and the upside down grandchild!

  7. Love the photo of the deer from your walk around the park. I love that sign from the school – what a great message to be giving out to the kids. The bingo afternoon sounded like fun and well done on your wins. That Active Travel Hub information session looked interesting. Hope that your assessment appointment went well. #project366

  8. Hope the Universal Credit gets sorted soon!

    The weather has been horrible hasn't it but glad you have managed to get out. That is so cool that you get to see deers on your walk!!

    Hope the capsules help.

  9. Glad you are making progress healthwise - hope the supplements help. I think you are wise to update your skills. Well done on the bingo wins to you and Bob.

  10. Well done to Bob and you for the Bingo wins! Hope the supplements help. I do struggle with big capsules. Love the deer photo, and the first scene is so airy and spacious.
    The school message is spot on.

  11. CV writing is so tricky and varied isn't it? Glad you are making progress health wise.

  12. I hope the work and universal credit things get on an even keel for you soon and the joint capsules prove beneficial #project366
