Hot Under The Collar
I've been looking for a collar to brighten up my black dresses and to prevent the black draining all the colour from my face.
I came across this one on Etsy and am thrilled with the results.
I can't wait to try it out on other items of plain clothing.
And I had some great news this weekend.
Back in August I had been advised by my GP to stop running for a while after suffering from severe pain in my groin and hip.
The pain was waking me up around 6am every day but once I was up and about it eased off.
Unfortunately no exercise has meant a very unwelcome weight gain of five pounds over the past three months.
But yesterday I finally got my appointment with a Sports Therapist and it turns out the problem is due to a very tight muscle.
After a (very painful) stretching session I woke this morning with no pain.
But I have to stretch every day for 20 minutes.
I am looking forward to starting my new regime.
Instead of four runs a week I will be running 2-3 times and adding a yoga class.
I am hoping that with some sensible eating and gentle exericise I can shed the weight in time for Christmas - a great gift to myself.
The bonus is my 18-year-old son says he wants to try yoga too so it will give us a chance to spend some time together.
Have a great weekend.
