Whilst the kids were at a church youth club we took the opportunity to head for a swim. We managed to work out which pier was going to have the tide coming over it and Rousse was just perfect tonight!

A gorgeous, restorative swim. Perfect end to a tiring week.

Ready to smash out a Bodypump workout.

HOWEVER….. whoever designed the horrific lunge track should be punished. It was brutal!

I popped into a local charity shop and spied this lovely limited edition print for a bargain £2. I love it. It reminds me of my swimming antics with my friend Emma.

A little bit of research and I have found that the artist is called Rachel Toll and the picture is called ‘Love the skin that you’re in’ and is inspired by this poem.

Three good friends went for a swim
The one who was fat wished she was thin.
The one she was curvy wished she was clever.
The one who was clever wished she swam better
The really great swimmer wished she was witty
The one who was witty wished she was pretty
All 3 friends thought the other 2 were just fine
If only they could let their own bright light shine
So throw on your swimsuit if you’re fat or you’re thin
Enjoy fun and friendship …. love the skin that you’re in

By Rachel Toll

It seems to me that The Little Miss got hold of my phone and took a few selfies… she even had a furry partner in crime!

20.1I am loving having Dad’s electric bike whilst he is away. I have pretty much cycled to work every day and I have also cycled to church, the gym, choir and anywhere I can.

I did think an e-bike was a bit of a cheat but I love being able to zoom up a hill withough feeling like I am about to have a heart attack, and then on the flat I can turn it off. It is great fun and it really makes me smile.

This was me waiting for Emma to meet me to cycle to choir. Such fun!

A busy weekend of kids activities, work in the garden, music practices and church. This evening we met our friends at Vazon for a quick, restorative swim. The sea had decent, if a little choppy surf but it was pretty warm and we stayed in a good while. A quick cuppa and some freshly baked banana bed and home for bath, tea and bed. Perfect.

A lovely weekend.

18.1This morning I cycled Dad’s electric bike to the gym and attended a ladies weights session at 7.30am!! An ungodly time to be exercising BUT it is one of my favourite classes.

It is a small class of up to 6 people with one instructor, the fabulous Jemma, and it is a tailored session depending on who is in. We now have it down to a fine art and we can all work on what we want with Jemma nearby to check on technique and to encourage us to push ourselves.

I love lifting weights… I never thought that would be something I would ever say but I enjoy the feeling of achieving the next goal and pushing myself beyond my expectations. I have been working my way up the quat weight list and Jemma laughingly said to me today ‘I reckon you can squat 90kg today’. Yeah yeah I thought… I pushed myself and squatted 100kg. Just three reps but I’ll take that.

I feel good. I am never going to be thin but I want to be strong with healthy bones fit. That’s what lifting heavy weights gives me.

These lovely young cows are in a field at the top of the road on the walk to school.

They clearly thought that I was going to feed them as they came running up the field when I walked along the path.

Gorgeous Guernsey cows.

It was the most beautiful day today so after school we headed to Vazon for an hour or so and had a lovely high tide swim.

It feels like we are on borrowed time and stretching out the last of summer.

Tonight I had the most fabulous evening. The fabulous Jackie Weaver came to Guernsey and I went to hear her being interviewed with some of my bonkers friends. The second half of the evening was Jackie Weaver intervewing some women who are active in local politics or government.

She was fascinating and funny. Very self-deprecating and full of common sense. The evening made me laugh loads and it was thoroughly enjoyable.

We even managed to get a selfie with the woman herself!
