Walk in the country
Yesterday we visited friends who are building a new home in the country. It was fun to get out for a drive. The paddocks are full of seeding grass which looks lovely but made me wheeze when we walked to the swimming hole. The neighbour's dogs ac... Read more
I've been looking at flip turns on YouTube. Here in NZ we used to get basic swimming lessons at school. I've never been taught beyond that and I don't think my swimming style is so great. But it seems like a lot of trouble to go to stroke school... Read more
... about Zumba today. My instructor is away and she has arranged for substitutes. But, oh, yesterday was a dead loss. It was TOO FAST and TOO HARD and it was a high impact aerobics session, with no time for making safer substitutions. If I had... Read more
Nek minnit, I was fit!

Saturday not slacker day
Gorgeous day today. Went to the 8am Zumba toning class I have just started, phew! Some hardcore folk stay for the fitness class that follows, which inspired me to take my togs along and fit in an aqua jogging session. So pleasantly cooling afte... Read more
Boy that was a long three days. My first week is over and after just a few weeks off I am amazed at how unfit I am for work days. After lunch I wanted to sit and relax, but, no, not a good look! Managed my swim but only 1 exercise day of the thr... Read more

I was wrong about the cats, they are letting on that they are very pleased indeed to have us back. Unfortunately this includes waking me up for a cuddle well before I wanted to be on the move. Big day ahead with unpacking, gardening, and Zumba o... Read more

Quick checkin today.
We have caught up with quite a few old friends, nothing quite like it for reconnecting with your roots.
It's very strange being in my hometown which is so very different in parts from when I knew it, the CBD is still co... Read more
Three login points today, woohoo!
Even if logging my exercise and logging in is all I do during this break, that's something, eh?... Read more
An overcast day, perfect for walking off our Xmas excesses. Good to spend time with family for Christmas and to share a lovely meal together. A few (27) earthquakes yesterday, some quite prolonged, but nothing significant. Christchurch is full o... Read more
Mainland Holiday blog
We've had a very restful time so far with warm weather, a calm sailing across Cook Strait and a very leisurely drive to Richmond to stay with my sister at her B&B. What a ravishing garden she has, full of roses and hostas in bloom at the moment.... Read more
