New Start. New Life

April 6, 2018

At last, I am here again!  It's been a long time, I know.  I've been away on holiday and have been trying to catch up on so many things since I came back.  

 

I've not been able to do much exercise since before Christmas, until recently.  While I was away I managed to get back into the swing of it and so made the decision that I would keep it up when I got home.  It is easier said than done, but I have made a start.

 

In the early 1980's my boyfriend and I decided that we would play badminton every week with another couple.  We bought ourselves badminton rackets that cost £18.99 each. 

 

He (now my husband) bought a lighter, more modern one from someone he worked with a few years ago.  I've stayed with my trusty old one - until today, that is.  I was given some money at Christmas and so decided to splash out on a new one.  I cycled into the city and bought one!  Even better, it was in the sale so I got more for my money.  I cannot believe how much lighter it feels and cannot wait to play on Monday!

 

On the way back I suddenly spotted a patch of colour at the side of the river bank.  I cycled nearer to investigate and got my mobile out to take a photograph. The photograph doesn't do it justice really because they took my breath away; a large bunch of daffodils nestled at the side.  I got very muddy, but it was worth it.

 

Spring flowers are appearing everywhere.  I love seeing them.   

 

They remind me that no matter how cold, dark and depressing the winter can seem, the longer, brighter days, colour and beauty always win through.
