Happy day

After the disappointment of yesterday, today has been an absolute joy.  At the recommendation of my much trusted physioI went along to a yoga class and found a fabulous teacher in a great venue.  The other ladies in the class are super and I came away knowing that this was the right thing for me to do.  When I got home Management pointed at the garage and said "you've had a delivery".



Wow!  Didn't expect that until the end of the week and after the disappointment of yesterday's weather we've now got a decent forecast until the weekend, therefore LP and I have cooked up a Plan for the Pond.  Carrying over the positive mental attitude from the yoga class, Plan is no longer a 4-letter word.  Well, it is unless you translate it into another language but you know what I mean.

This afternoon the sun shone, the lass who cuts my hair was in splendid form and we laughed like silly girls, and everyone I bumped into in Cockermouth was smiling.  The fells wanted to get in on the act too, lovely light at teatime.





Early night tonight, got a busy day tomorrow.

  2. Fabulous light and visibility here too yesterday. On the way home from singing last night I stopped at the highest point where I drive over the end of the Wolds and just looked at the view right across the city and out to Spurn Point until it got dark. Even better at 3am this morning was a crystal clear sky and a conjunction with the rising crescent moon and Venus. Cloud and rain now! Fingers crossed for the big P!!!! x

  3. Oooh. When I looked in yesterday those last 2 landscape pics didn't appear. And now they are. My gosh but they 'bout take one's breath away. I just love seeing sheep on meadow. Do I see a new fence down their by the bend in the river?

    Standing by for 'Pond plan' action.... Don't overdo, dear.

    1. Kris, you must have stumbled on this post minutes after it went up because I added the views no more than half an hour later. The 'new fence' is a year or so old and replaced the one washed away in the 2009 flood.

      Pond reports will have to wait, busy "doing the work" rather than "photographing the work" :}

    2. Yep, knew the fence wasn't in the last river view. My last camera had a remote 'clicker' so I could set it up on a tripod, then would click the button (with 4 second delay) then get pics in progress. Found out that everything would look good in the pic - except me. Upgraded the camera. Obviously the old one was seriously flawed. LOL

    3. Yeah, I've had cameras like that, serious design flaw!

  4. All I can say Bilbo is that when the weather is good over there, it is very, very good. Viewed from the drier but not so picturesque Dales - the fells look glorious in your photos.

    1. Thanks WoG, the evening light usually shows the fells at their best but frankly, any time I can see hills I am happy :}

  5. Wow! Awesome!
    I'm impressed by how much work you've got done while I've been glued to the Olympics and Paralympics!!!! I did have a well dodgy knee as an excuse I hasten to add! (hence not much has got done at Gnome Towers this summer!)
    Speak to you soon :-)

    1. Oh poor Nutty, I am sorry your knee is still bad (especially as you did the damage when you were up here ...)

  6. I love yoga and wish I'd discovered it 25 years ago instead of 5! I did find it took about 6 months of going regularly before I really felt I was doing the poses properly. It's a great feeling as your muscles strengthen up. Love the views too, gorgeous pics.

    1. Hi Sewali, sorry to take a while to thank you for your comment. Have been wanting to start yoga for a long while but it's never been the right time. Now found a wonderful group and am really enjoying the practise.
