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.

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.

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.
