Oof!

 That's the word I uttered just now as I flopped down on the sofa.

I met up with the girls after breakfast for our usual Sunday morning walk. The rain had stopped but it was still very windy.

Today's walk was two hours, up and down a couple of pretty steep hills. I am not yet used to remembering to use my recently prescribed inhaler (it seems I do have asthma after all) so I struggled with my breathing on the steep sections.

Towards the end of the walk the rain returned so it was good to get to the coffee shop for coffee and cake.

Now back home, a cup of tea and a hot shower. I feel very sleepy.

We are supposed to be meeting friends at our local pub tonight for a meal.  Just hope that I can stay awake.

  1. It sounds like a great walk filled by cake and coffee. No walk for me today. It is wet and windy here on the Irish Riviera. Time to find my "rainy day" waterproof perhaps? Enjoy your meal tonight JayCee.

    1. Thanks Dave. We were lucky the rain held off. It's tipping down again now though.

  2. "oof" - an exclamation expressing alarm, annoyance, or relief. First recorded in English in the mid-nineteenth century. Popularised by Popeye the Sailorman when thumped by that horrid Bluto chappie before consuming whole tins of spinach. Who's laughing now Bluto?

    2. Tattoos of anchors on your forearms would complete the effect JayCee.

  3. Sounds like a good morning in my book. Sunday is rarely a go for a walk day or work outside day (a historical religious thing on the Island) so I've always used it as my "get things done in the house day".`

    1. That sounds good too, especially on a wet and windy day like today.

    1. It hasn't been a good week for walking over here in the west.

  5. Hope you managed time for a nap before your evening out. That's my remedy!
