That needs to change as swimming once a week isn't really enough for fitness. So last week I did a short walk (and I mean short!) one day and then two days later a wee bit longer..........which is the smallest circular walk - only just over a mile................. I need to build up gradually!
Before I got to this lane I had to cross the field at the end of the meadow - 'twas a tad muddy.
Made a decision to get myself some walking shoes rather than my big walking boots.... next month. The boots are so difficult to get on and heavy too, especially when caked in good Suffolk sticky clay soil.
With a bit more walking I'll be able to get down across the fields to the Middy Heritage Railway Museum when they have their WWII re-enactment weekend in May. I just had a look on THEIR WEBSITE and found they have a "guest engine" there for the season - it's the little shunting engine Sirapite which is usually to be seen at the GARRETTS LONG SHOP MUSEUM in Leiston, just down the road from daughters house. What puzzles me is Sirapite is one of the main attractions at The Long Shop so people visiting there to see it this year will be disappointed.

Here are the answers to the spot the difference jigsaw puzzle pictures from Thursdays post.
Top is the picture on the box
- The ladder doesn't go as far up the tree
- The weather vane on the summer house becomes a ball
- The man digging has a blue instead of brown jacket
- The man digging is using a spade rather than fork
- The statue figure is reversed
- The right hand butterfly by the roses is a different sort
- There is a hedgehog by the greenhouse door instead of a rabbit
- There is a squirrel in the apple tree instead of a bird
- The pigeon flying between house and greenhouse is reversed
- There is a rose bud rather than full rose in bottom left rose bush
- The man pushing the wheelbarrow has a cap instead of a hat
- The front door of the house is red rather than blue
- The thrush on the pond surround has become a blackbird
- The cat on the path on the left hand edge is reversed
- and finally - most difficult to see - on the ground by the ladder an extra apple has appeared.
Think I may have got rather too choosy about jigsaws, went round all 10 charity shops in Stowmarket and didn't find one I wanted to do!
Have a wonderful weekend folks,
