Sitting in the sun

I tried to update here and comment earlier but nothing was working properly, but it seems alright now.

The weather here has been gloriously hot for the last week, everyone is complaining, but not me! We went to Birkenhead this afternoon to get some photos printed. On the way home we bought an icecream from Thorntons. When we were waiting for the train I sat down on the platform leaning against a pillar, licking my icecream, the sun hot on my back and a gentle breeze on my face, I closed my eyes and could imagine myself leaning against a palm tree on a tropical island, the next moment I transported myself to to Battery Park looking out at the Statue of Liberty, then to Lake Geneva on a hot summers day. It was really lovely, couldn't have been nicer... don't know what the other travellers thought, don't much care! But give me a hot sun and a cool breeze and I would be happy any where!

Oh, that sounds delightful. A dreamy Viv transporting herself around the world. That's great.

You sure wouldn't want to be here just now, it's absolutely pouring and it's very very cold and windy. Ack!

I've woken up to misty drizzle this morning, it would probably be easier to imagine myself at school in Stokes Valley this morning than on a tropical island! Oh well!

Oh and how I'd like you to be here. Did you hear about the teacher murdered in Tokoroa? She was at a school with the same name as ours, Strathmore, and the news didn't make it clear at first that it wasn't our Strathmore! Poor woman was 66, just setting up her classroom for the new term. Really sad stuff.

Imagination
I don't think I could ever have that much imagination on Birkenhead Central's platform. Although, I might hallucinate if I had an ice cream just now. I'm pleased to say that I have followed the diet to the letter this week. I wonder how many more weeks I could do that for?

You can do it! A net friend of mine has already lost my son in weight by sticking to the programme, and it looks like she has changed a lot of her habits along the way, which helps in the long run. I can cheer from a distance for you, if you like *g*

Re: Imagination
I hope that the results when you're weighed today reflect your diligence! Just take it one week at a time!
