Soggy Monday.

This is the photo I took of the Bean on Roxy in his first lesson on Saturday morning! I thought I would share :)

It's a soggy old day today, the rain has been pouring from the sky all morning (where else would it pour from?) and it's been so dark I've needed the lights on in the house. The clouds are just starting to break up a little now so I'm hoping the wet stuff is on its way out.

I was very proud of myself this morning as, after dropping the Bean at school, I headed straight for the park and had a walk around the lake. The exercise did me good I think and I felt good afterwards. I did feel a little odd as everyone else was walking their doggies (never seen so many!) and as I passed them I could sense them looking for my four legged pooch. Really, it's legal to walk without one! Honest!

Since coming home I have sent another query off to a magazine and have searched online for more opportunities. I have also requested two application forms from the council as there are some part time teaching assistant posts going in schools not far from the bean's. One is in the morning, the other in the afternoon. One 9-12 the other 12:15-3:15. If I get them both I'll have indigestion after lunch(!) but I will apply for both as the chance of two successes is remote. I'm still hoping some wonderful writing opportunity will come up to replace the one I am losing but I think it wise to have a plan B as well.

I've just submitted this week's WeightWatchers blog, I lost one and half pounds last week so writing that was quite good fun. My Wii fit should be delievered in the next three days now - I wish it would hurry up! I only have a month now until we fly to Spain to visit my Dad and I really want to be under my next stone marker by then!

Harry looks great ... like he's been riding ponies for years!

I'm glad your morning's walk has provided a boost. It always works for me.

Have a great week and I hope your search for a new project proves fruitful. xx

Mummy said...

Carol - that's just what I said to my hubby when we were watching him! I hope you have a fruitful week too xx

I love the photo of the bean having his riding lesson.

Best of luck with your applications, I hope you hear something positive very soon.

He looks cute!

Love the bit about the people looking for your dog.. ha ha

Mummy said...

Debs - thank you. I've sent two queries off for articles so far and I've got two forms to fill in for 'normal' jobs too...

Dee - I think so, but I'm a bit biased! I need to borrow a pooch for my walks I think!
