Dog days are great! I spent yesterday with a friend who has 5 dogs. A couple of retired greyhounds, a lurcher, a beddington terrier and a whippet. I had the loveliest time. Dogs don't care about your appearance, they only care about the affection, food and safety we can offer them. In return we get oodles of affection back. I swear I have muscle ache from all the stroking and cuddling I did! I only wish I was fitter so we could have played more in the garden.
Today I got back and squeezed my cat, lovable little spikey rogue that she is. Pets are wonderful. I'm so glad we have them in our lives.
Five good things about my week:
1. I've lost 3 lbs! Hooray!
2. Today was a beautiful sunny day, and really hot. (It has been cold and blustery and wet most of this month here in England)
3. I've been getting gazillions of strawberries from my very own plants. Yum Yum!
4. I've realised that my month of swimming during May has paid off - I feel far less creaky. Time to hit the pool again.
5. It is 10 months since I started this journal, and although I may have not lost weight, I have gained in other directions. I feel far more centred in my life than I was last year, and far more hopeful that I can make changes for the better in my life. :)
