A little time in the morning.

It's nice to have a couple of days away from work and dare I say away from home. I don't get the chance that often and to be honest when I do, I'm not the first to embrace it. However, it's Christmas time and at Christmas time we get the chance to put our feet up and simply chill for a while.

The last couple of days have been spent doing exactly that and this morning was for sure one of the high points.

A number of months ago I decided to have a go at Tai Chi. Since them I've plodded a happy little road training as often as I either can, or can be bothered. I made a decision not to put to much pressure on myself around training and to simply try and see what happens.Turns out that was the way forward for me.

Now I train two or three times a week and really, really enjoy it. That being the case, this morning was a real high point in my training. This morning I spent some time in a frosty garden in the middle of the county side with the birds singing while I practiced. It was a memorable experience. I enjoyed it and will surely do it again. And that is the key for me, I really enjoyed it.

It's Christmas

It's been a funny old couple of weeks. Big changes at work have put the pressure on as is usually the case. Life has plodded on its merry way and of course the wonder that is Christmas has taken all our money and left us penny-less. However, all this seems to pail into insignifacance when I look into the eyes of my son Jack. Right now as he is tucked up safely in bed waiting for santa, things are ok. Ok is ok.
