taking time out

I've realised that with balancing home life and two part-time working roles, life does get a little crazy. My focus has always been on keeping up, getting things done and enjoying time with my family. Recently I've come to see that means there's very little time left over to just do the things I love to do for me. I've let that slip and I think my body is suffering for it.
So here's some snaps from Wednesday's bike ride. I set off mid morning for an hour. It's a route that takes me over some hills initially, then down onto the flats along the waterways.
It was hard going at first. My lungs were bursting and painful and my muscles were aching. It's been far too long..
The weather was perfect though.. sunny, cool, with a slight breeze helping me along.
I'm heading out again today. Meeting a friend at the River Read, for a coffee and maybe even to look out for a copy of Kate's book Vantastic. Check it out. if you're into caravans then this is for you!

Happy Friday, everyone
