Yoga. And 120 miles...

Totally going to do it.

January is traditionally my quiet month where I avoid my tax return yet worry about it constantly, submitting it as late as possible after a full month of grumpiness.

You may be able to spot that I could do this a better way.

In order to distract myself I also do as many other things as possible in spare time.

I have done some Brownie planning, booking pack holiday and signing up for Helen Skelton's Red Nose Day Challenge.

I have been to help prepare Thinking Day crafts for Glasgow County.

I have signed up for a trip to Sangem in India (it's a Girlguiding trip) and have been to the first workshop.

I have tried a new spin class that had an abs workout at the end. I couldn't laugh comfortably for 3 days!

Most recently I tried a beginner yoga class. I do not think yoga is for me. The hands together or raised towards an imaginary sun felt odd - reverent but without an understanding of why, or what for. The movements were good - hard for me to do, but repetitive so I could learn them at my very slow pace.  The bit I found hardest were the meditations... I'm not very keen on sitting quietly, so lying quietly with my eyes shut folllowing instructions was hard. I didn't like it.

However I don't think it would be right to make a decision on a single session so am going again next week.

We won a pub quiz.

I went to watch Glasgow Warriors in the Heineken Cup against Northampton Saints. Loved it.

I have visited friends, and was given Herman the German friendship cake which I have been looking after for 3/4 days. This morning I fed him.

Fyi the tax is done... But not actually submitted. It is due 31 Jan.

Sounds like quite an enjoyable January to me.

Yoga certainly isn't for everyone. Maybe it'll grown on you, maybe not.

I "met" you when you were procrastinating about taxes!
