Well it’s a case of back on the wagon again as for the last week or so I have had a stinking cold and didn’t feel much like doing anything except eating chicken noodle soup and sleeping!
I thought I would have a really nice blog this week about a new (ish) bird feeder that (Hayloft guest) David Ponton asked me to try. Together with Richard Jackson’s wonderful bird food, I thought I would be able to get some great video and photos of the birds at it.
However, I seem to have invited the company of my three cats more than the birds and as they sit there patiently taking it in turns to watch the bird table, the birds have been too wise to come and feed in any numbers.
I will have to try and find a better spot for it but think that my neighbour’s garden may be hot favourite as the birds flock in there and feed well.
The pilates was going well but I will have to get started again. It hasn’t cured my Plantar Fasciitis yet so I have bought myself a splint to sleep in. This keeps the foot flexed and that is supposed to relieve the problem. I’ve had it about four days now and remain to be convinced but as I have had the problem for over a year I don’t think anything will be sorted out overnight.
It seems clear to me that this is a great form of exercise and one that keeps you fit for life but you should try to do it almost every day. It’s something that I need to try to incorporate into my life and as it is so hectic, it has been a bit of a problem. However, I am motivated to do this so I will persevere.
I’ll keep you posted with feet, birds, cats and Pilates over the next few weeks.
