    After school I had girl's football. I scored a goal.

  • Today the kids ate at 4.15pm and as soon as my husband got in from work at 4.30pm my daughter was taken to Welshpool football academy at Welshpool football ground . . . my husband got back at 5.15pm and after his tea went to Newtown at 6pm for his Tai Chi class.
  • . . . will have tea prepared for me tonight. Will save it until I've been to yoga classes 8 -9.30pm in Sports Centre. Went to Aqua Aerobics there last night. Swimming for improvers tomorrow. All as part of getting my back into shape. Appears to be working too.

    Aqua aerobics - need my exercise class.

  • Up early and off for a swim - for me an enjoyable way to keep fit and to shut out all other thoughts than water and moving through it and emerging feeling light and positive.

  • 7.30am to 8.15am swam 1400metres. Went by car to public baths.

  • Rang other friends to see if they are all going to "keep fit" session at the local fitness suite tomorrow (Yes) Peter's pal rang to arrange a game of golf tomorrow so we will both be getting some good exercise.

  • Up at 7.45am. To golf club - seniors match, started 9am. Home for lunch after attending to golf club business.
  • At 10am I went to play a few holes of golf with friends, which was very enjoyable and at mid day half a dozen of us had a drink and a snack lunch in the club house. My golf wasn't brilliant but the exercise was good and the day was so lovely with the sky blue and the sun shining.

  • I went home to ride my pony. First of all I brushed my pony. He is a lovely dark bay colour. Then I tacked him up. Then I went for a lovely ride.
