Today friend W took me to her exercise class - exercise for ladies of a certain age that is. We did an hour's gentle exercise, designed to keep us mobile and help our balance and I really enjoyed it. I shall certainly continue to go as often as I can until I have the operation on my ankle - then, as I shall be on crutches for about two months, I shall still go along and do the upper body exercises.
Of course the side effect of this is that one meets a new group of people and this is always good - to extend one's circle. In a small town like ours it just means that when you are walking round you meet even more people to say hello to, and I am all for that.
Now I have to do the exercises each day in order to get a bit more supple = today I was rather like a creaky old gate.
