Hello, how are you?
I’m grand: it’s a public holiday here, so I’m at the end of a long weekend. It’s back to work tomorrow, but only for three days until I head off on holiday…. To Toronto! I’m so excited!
This past week has been good, and I enjoyed my classes: Clubbercise, PiYo and Pound. I still haven’t squeezed in a run yet, but I’m not feeling guilty about that. I’ve still been active.
This weekend, we had a brilliant family weekend away in Aberfeldy to celebrate my uncle Jim’s 60th Birthday. What a laugh! We had lots of fun, excellent company, a few drinks and masses of fantastic food. Wow. I have eaten well! What was unusual was being away for a whole weekend with no mobile signal and no WiFi, so we all had to be social with no online time at all- it was great!
A group of us (18 of us, I think) went White Water Rafting on the River Tummel. When we arrived, we found out that we would be ‘closing’ the river, as we’d be the last group down the river in 2015. Ace! While we were waiting to get sorted, @TheWelshWookie spotted a familiar figure: it was none other than Frank, the coach driver who took us to the Great North Run! What a small world, eh? We had a wee chat with him, and he definitely remembered us too 🙂
We had a couple of photos taken:
Then, it was time to head off, down the river. We were divided into four rafts, and on ours there was me, @TheWelshWookie, my sis Angie and my cousins Jane, Lewis and Ciara. We realised pretty quickly that it wasn’t as easy as it looked (or as easy as I had remembered- I last did it 10 years ago)! We had such a laugh, and found ourselves trapped or in trouble at just about every turn! We christened ourselves #TeamBounce, since we had to bounce the boat out of trouble a few times! 😉
Our instructor was loads of fun, and he even threw Ciara in at one point (nothing to do with her non stop talking!), but that was nothing compared to our spectacular tipping out at the final big drop!
I ended up under the boat, and it took me a few seconds to even realise what had happened! It was such brilliant, brilliant fun though. If you get the chance, do it.
Tonight was our final Clubbercise session before the October half term, which works out nicely with my forthcoming holiday.
Today, we’ve spent the day doing housework and packing: we are now good to go!
I saw this and thought I’d share it. I love it:
Have a brilliant week, all!
