The pleasures of walking are multiple. Take today's hourly walk as an example. I took my camera with me to take many shots of the flora and fauna. I took 3 measly photos, none of which are good enough to grace any album. But the pleasure of today's walk was the little puppy "Jack" who jumped up against my skirt and took a bite out of the end of it and would not let go. Worry not my skirt was intact on the ride home. Then there was the anonymous big dog who jumped out of the water with a stick and ran past me so fast that he covered me in water as he ran. Thirdly there was the black spaniel who ran between his boy owner and boy's mum at a terrific pelt. My point? Walks develop themes of their own. You start to notice different things even on the same walk.
This past week has been a bit chaotic in terms of eating out and spending, but I don't regret the wonderful day I had in Chester(see two photos of me above lurking in doorways.) I am reigning in meals out. I keep buying clothes which although they are cute and a bargain will not fit soon.
