Summer Plans!

I was looking back on a post from last year, and it seems I am somewhat in the same psotion.

Last year, we had every intention of sorting the kids bedrooms out, and I wanted to try and get fit, lose a little weight… but it didn’t happen.

I ended up lethargic, and unable to do anything. The fear or many things was whirling in my brain, and on the last day of the holidays I got the courage up to to to the doctors.

I was diagnosed with an extremely low Vitamin D level, so put on really high dosage supplements! It seems to be the trend nowadays, everyone has a Vit D issue!

But I was good, and things started out ok… until I forgot to take them, and the tiredness crept back in. It took me a while for my sunshine deprived brain to realise that I had been forgetting something important every morning! But I did remember, and I am back on them. I hope this holiday, we can accomplish what we wanted to last summer!


I’m prepared!

And I kick-started my trying to get healthy past by going for a walk in the Gurdwara playing field, which is a stone’s throw away from the  house, yesterday evening, with the kids. It was so peaceful!


Serenity in the sports field!

And this morning, I managed a lie in, which was wonderful, with no night time visitors, except for the furry kind, and his was the face I woke up to this morning too!


I am currently packing for a few days at my parents, with the kids, and then the big makeover of the rooms will start! And I feel pumped! We will achieve this this year!

    I see that you are a Costco-ista from the Kirkland brand on the Vitamin bottle.

    Stay healthy.
    I love the free langar in the nearby Gurdwara, but it is 14 miles away, so can’t walk😢

    @Ritu, I hope you get well very soon, and there is nothing better than the parents home so as to get better.
