Things I'm Afraid to Tell You

this post is inspired by Jess Constable 
and initiated by Ez from Creature Comforts.

I thought it might be nice to every so often share something you might not know about me.
Ever since I can remember people have always taken one look at me and thought that I would be into sports.

I have no idea why!

When I was in my 20's and foot loose and fancy free I had men wanting to date me who were 
PE Teachers, Marathon runs, Hikers, Skiers, Cyclists and they always wanted me to do
their sport of choice with them.
The truth is sport and I just don't gel!

Now in my 40's I walk once or twice a week with a good friend.
This time last year we had to give up walking due to constant rain.
So this year my friend said 
"Lets try Yoga?"

I thought how hard can that be.

Today I went to my second class and I had to stop half way through as I nearly fainted.
The instructor kept saying your tight in the back, tight in the pelvis, tight between the shoulders.
In the end we both agreed I am just tight all over.

Even though I nearly fainted (the whole class knew) and I ache all over and I need to work on my breathing so I dont faint!
I must confess that I am enjoying this Yoga.
I think I might have finally found a sport that suits me.
I will keep you posted.

Just so you know I am still crafting away and turning out lots of Hot water Bottle covers for 
a new market that I am going to this weekend.


  1. Oh I just love the toadstools, so cool, I did yoga for two years and loved it, then the tutor closed the class, and I stopped, it was a bit far to travel into town to attend classes, I walk every morning with a friend. Good luck on the new market, you will be a hit Alex, cheers Marie

  2. Hey Alex, you must have very athletic looking figure.........I haven't tried Yoga but am thinking about it.

    Your new hottie cover, looks toadstools. I hope the new market goes well.
