Long Walk






DH and I went for one of our LONG walks today. It ended up to be 13.5 km! Subway half way of course! My legs have had it now though. I was OK while we were walking, except when we decided to try a different road home and it was WAY too steep for me. Now I have stopped I feel like I can't walk another step! He has since gone for a 7km run and is now cutting the front lawn with his handmower! Crazy!

We went to the Casino last night for a smorgasbord. We had been given a gift voucher at Christmas time and hadn't used it. Everything was very nice. I had quite a feast, but I think today's walk will take care of that!

I usually have a few games of Keno and a small flutter on the machines. I put $2 in a machine and won some free games straight away. The next minute I had won $107!!! (funny thing was that I had dreamt I won some money earlier in the week!).That paid for the rest of our evening, so we were very pleased with that. We listened to a guy singing for a few hours. He was very talented. He also played guitar, flute, piano and trumpet. Amazing!


Monday morning update: My feet and legs are fine today. I will have a rest from exercise though. Dear grand-daughter is here and I will push her in the stroller for our outing this afternoon - that will be enough exercise for me today!

Well done on your walk AND your win. I love it when that happens! My DS loves going out in the stroller, he gets so excited seeing all the birds and dogs and he's really into buses at the moment. He's 20 months. Unfortunately it was too hot this weekend and now it's raining sideways today so there will be no walking happening for us. Have a great day.
