Maybe lost some weight

I just weighed myself on my mum scales. I couldn’t resist.

Looks like I lost what I gained while I was in England. I’m so happy about that.

Hopefully by the time I go to slimming world on Wednesday evening I will be down another pound or two on top of that. If I am, I will be thrilled

Hope I can do this, fingers crossed.

Bee’s Poem of the Day ~ Between Bacton and Walcott

This morning I took Sherky to Bacton and walked her all the way down to Walcott as I wanted to take pictures for Wednesday’s “Wordless Wednesday”. It’s not a very long walk but so beautiful. The sea was quite choppy but it wasn’t cold which was nice. The street goes directly along the beach in Walcott and suddenly Andy, my husband, turned up in his car. He finished earlier what he had planned today so we could go back with him. I collected the other car and was really glad: needed the toilet desperately ;-).

Between Bacton and Walcott

Swoosh rustle swoosh.

Sun on faces.

Rustle swoosh rustle.

Dogs greeting each other.

Swoosh rustle swoosh.

Does the sea go out,

rustle swoosh rustle,

or come in?

Swoosh rustle swoosh

Grass beside us swaying,

Rustle swoosh rustle,

it’s slender form bending.

Swoosh rustle swoosh

Beach beside the street.

Rustle swoosh rustle

What a picnic!

Street along beach in Walcott. Beach to left, street to right and houses behind
Street in Walcott without parked cars


The street through Walcott goes directly along the beach. On the other side are a caravan site, a little grocery store and a fish and chip shop. You are allowed to park on the sea side of the street if the sea is not too choppy and many tourists and locals use it to have their fish and chips with a gorgeous view. It’s just rather annoying if you just want to drive through Walcott and can’t get along because of the opposite traffic. Never mind.

May you have a wonderful new week!

What do you see?

Some people could be given an entire field of roses and only see the thorns in it. Others could be given a single weed and only see the wildflower in it. Perception is a key component to gratitude. And gratitude is a key component to joy.
