You wouldn’t think I would care much about the weather outside at the moment. With a writing deadline looming, I’ve been chained to my computer for the better part of most days.
That doesn’t mean to say I’m not sick of the rain we’ve had over the past few months, though, so I’m pleased that the sunny days are finally beginning to get the upper hand.
I try to take a short walk each day, usually around the neighbourhood, but of course that can get pretty boring. On Thursday, I rebelled and decided a larger slice of fresh air was required, so hubby and I drove to Ilkley for a morning walk up on the moors.
Although it was glorious sunshine, there was a cold breeze and I’d dressed accordingly – admittedly “baht ‘at” (“without a hat” for you non-Yorkshire folk) – but with the exertion of clambering uphill, I was soon tugging off my coat and dragging it behind me!
We got great views across the town . . .
And I always love the open, almost desolate nature of the moors . . .
When we got back down down into town, a coffee and a Fat Rascal at the famous Bettys were definitely in order . . .
I have to admit that all this sitting at a computer lately isn’t doing a great deal for my fitness levels. My calf muscles were definitely sulking for a couple of days afterwards, but it was worth it!
