In which I wish I wasn’t Velma and wish I was Daphne, or perhaps Annie Lennox…
My son and I were working away one one of his future blog posts – him speaking, me typing – and he hits out with: “You’re like Velma, typing away. Do you know the keys off by heart?”
He’s right. I totally am like Velma. I thought this haircut was just the same as the last one, but no, it turns out that I am a doppelganger for Velma Dinkley.
Maybe I should have gone for an Annie Lennox. I loved her entry at the Olympic closing ceremony. I thought to myself: “I must get myself a vampire pirate ship ” and only the very next day, did I happen upon one, sort of.
Anyway, with this new health and fitness regime, I was really hoping for more of a Daphne result than a Velma. I have, so far, perhaps overdone the exercise part.
Yesterday morning I did a 5k in lovely sunshine. 😀
Yesterday evening I did an hour of a very thorough workout in torrential rain, working parts of the body I never knew I had while doing press ups, planks, shuttle runs, froggy jumping, dodging piles of dog poo and skiting full length through puddles – Woosh! Afterwards I looked as if I had been dragged through a hedge backwards… well … um.. yes…
Every muscle in my body has made its presence felt today. It’s fine, as long as I don’t have to move…
Here’s hoping my trainers dry out before tomorrow.
