So today was another aquazumba class. I will be like a shrivelled prune soon. I realised today that I have to admit that everything takes me longer nowadays. Like showering and getting dressed and drying the hair etc etc. My friends always have to wait for me. Maybe I need to start going in my own car. I need time. I will think about it.
So after our lesson today, there was another aquazumba lesson for the staff, so they could actually experience what we do in the water themselves. According to our teacher they were red faced halfway through. They certainly hammed it up a lot and there was a great deal of splashing, which is a natural consequence of putting a crowd of lads in the water together. But they seemed to be having fun.
I came back home to collect the poles from my extinct greenhouse, and I took them down to the allotment to shove into the soil around my broadbeans, so I can tie a rope around them later to stabilise the plants as they grow. And then I popped in to have a quick coffee with my friends before I headed into town for an appointment.
I decided to actually go into the shopping centre and treat myself to something because I needed a little cheering up, but what I wanted was not available anywhere, so I will have to venture down to MK and check the bigger stores there. It was not quite what I had in mind. All I bought was a bag of bamboo canes at the Pound shop for the garden. Sigh. It is years since I actually went into town, now that I come ot think about it. Some shops had vanished and bargain shops and charity shops seemed to be springing up everywhere. It was depressing. This recession is killing off town centres, if ours is anything to go by.

That's it for today, people - hopefully the sun will shine a little longer tomorrow!
