Wasted Time

I've just finally opened a Twitter account and is therefore something I'm only just getting to grips with. How to tweet or retweet......and what appears to everyone....and what is seen only by those its intended for.

So I'm still being really careful at the moment.

This appeared as a Tweet - on my Twitter page:

"How many wasted minutes are in your day? What if you put them all together and took another step towards you goal?"

I'm sharing it with you because I think its very apt. Time is so short and there is so much to do. Something I often complain about in my Blog. I try not to waste time and to live every minute of my life even if that's doing the boring mundane stuff like the washing. When I'm at my best I can juggle two or three housey tasks between catching up on my favourite TV and sorting out the evening meal. Its tiring though but I really see the benefits of doing it.

Its such a shame that I often loose all the time I've gained by procrastinating. Updating and viewing facebook when I should be writing web pages.

Oh well!

Motivational Quote - Mind and Body

"Wholesome exercise in the free air, under the wide sky, is the best medicine for body and spirit."

Sarah Louise Arnold

I chose this quote having been to the gym at lunchtime. I get a real buzz and energy kick from my exercise classes and believe that exercise is just as good for the mind as the body. And I believe that's its good to take an hour or so of gym classes 2-3 times a week.

But what I know more than anything is there is nothing quite like a week's walking in the fells of the lake district.

I can't wait.

Ode to His Royal Doggyness

Sadly, I had to say goodbye to a very special friend over the Christmas period. His Royal Doggyness grew very tired after 14 years of shedding grey hair on my black clothes, going for walks and splattering me with mud, leaving muddy paw prints over freshly cleaned floors.

He will be very missed.

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, and his leader. He will be yours,
faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
