I had a wonderful weekend! As you know I am a keen cyclist - both road and mountain.
This weekend I tried to organise a ride but only one friend was available.
Anyway, we decided to do some Mountain Bike Trails near home - 'S' has quite a number of years on me (she won't mind me saying) and still enjoys tackling the rough stuff whilst whooping for joy! She still does what she loves and I hope I continue to do so when her age!
As I have been doing so much cycling I have treated myself to some new cycling specific clothing from local Cycle Shop The Green Jersey run by the coolest people!
A really social cycle shop I am heading back to sample the cake!
I met a friend I have not seen in a while for coffee on Sunday.
We spent the best part of four hours catching up. It's surprising how with good friends you can go a while and then just pick up where you left off.
One comment she made was "Gosh, I've never known you in one place for four hours - you used to be rushing here, there and everywhere!"
It got me to thinking how life has changed over the last few years.
My children, being 18 & 20, less dependant, not taking on as many demands, learning to say "No", realising there is nothing wrong with delegation and taking time out for myself without the associated guilt I used to have.
As long as my kitchen & bathroom are clean the rest can wait!
I try to spend as much time out in the fresh air as possible & seize the day - those feel good hormones make me more chilled - and maybe that's what my friend noticed today.
I hope you have had a great weekend & achieved what you set out to!
