New Year ... New Me

Well it been a couple of weeks since I last blogged and whilst I have not done anything that would set the world on fire I have made a few lifestyle changes.

Firstly, I have started Zumba with Lorraine on a Tuesday night in Mid Calder - whilst I am not the quickest at picking up routines and always seem to use the opposite legs/feet to everyone else I am actually really enjoying it .... and it must be good for me!!!

Secondly, I have decided that I will do the 5K Race for Life run this May, never done anything like this before but have enlisted the help of my 7 year old son to get me through it. It must be the "Life begins at 40" gene that has spurred me on to do this - mind you I hit that a few years ago, must be a slow developer!!!

Again I am trying to plan our annual works "girlie" weekend away. Each year myself and my colleagues go away to different parts of the country and have lots of fun without our children - shopping, Wii games, board games and a few drinks of course. Well, this year I have put it to my colleagues to go to Centre Parcs in Cumbria where we can take on a few activities ie roller blading (mind you I am likely to spend more time on my butt) but the piece de resistance is the spa experience - fabulous, 3 hours of total relaxation and de-stressing.

Our craft classes have restarted and we are trying our hand at making small photo/memory books which would make excellent presents for Mothers Day (will post pics when done). We have also tried embossing old drinks cans after they been cut and washed, they work well and produce some good results as well as doing our bit for the environment - thanks to Fi for this tip.

Off the the spa at the EICA tomorrow morning with my mum, it generally not busy in the morning and usually have the jacuzzi, sauna and steam room to ourselves but then again it may be busier tomorrow with a lot of people trying their New Year Resolutions.....
