Nothing like persevering when one feels like not doing something. I have undergone two very bad night's sleep - in both cases mostly because of cramp in my feet. And, as I am sure you all know, if you can't sleep then unwelcome thoughts which you hoped to forget while you were asleep, pop into the head to exacerbate the situation.
Today is my exercise class, which I know is very good for me, and I was determined to go. To that end I went back to bed after tidying round after breakfast. I awoke several times with foot cramp but did manage two hours, getting up again at half past ten for a shower and to get lunch.
The first half hour of our class is 'top half' of the body and brain exercises and these I found most helpful. But the second half is done standing up and really, after ten minutes, I was just too tired to continue so I sat down and watched. In one way it was good in that I was able to watch the rest of the class and it was pleasing to see that I was nowhere near as bad as I thought I was compared with the rest of them.
But I must say that arriving home I had no energy left and was happy to sit by the fire. It is very much warmer today - ten degrees for a while early afternoon, once the fog had cleared. But a storm is approaching from the West. We over here in the East are hoping that it is not quite as bad over here and that, perhaps, it doesn't get so far up the country as here.
It is the first of February today - and I forgot. It always say 'rabbits' and ceremonially turn the calendar over. Someone on their blog has just reminded me, so when I sign off I shall have to turn round three times. Yes, I do still retain some of my belief in these daft old sayings.
