|One Nation by ByGone Stitches: Before|
It has been a busy week. I went back to work on Monday, and have had various meetings about my new role - I'm going to teach young people (who aren't in education for different reasons) Functional Skills in Maths and English. I start going out to see them next week, so things are going to get hectic!
I also started back at Slimming World on Wednesday, so I'm back to healthy eating, and I've also stopped drinking coffee. That resulted in 2 days of caffeine withdrawal symptoms - headache, extreme tiredness, and lethargy... I'm now on the other side, so totally caffeine free! I have done this before, and managed about 2 years without coffee, but slid back into caffeine addiction when I broke my ankle last year.
Being on my diet has also encouraged me to go out walking again - something which I have let slide over the last 5 or 6 months or so... The OH and I went out this morning - a very cold and windy morning - for a walk to Darwen Tower:
It was very frosty, and was blowing quite a cold wind up on the hill, but it blew the cobwebs away! We are hoping to go out every week on a walk, increasing the distance, until we feel we are ready to join a walking group.
I can reveal the ornament I stitched over Christmas, as the recipient has now received it:
