360 degree


Over the weekend I

* enjoyed more fabulous autumnal colours -  I particularly liked the clear blue sky with the copper coloured beech leaves.

* watched on TV the All Blacks (NZ) beat Scotland at rugby.  Probably the only time that I happily sing along to both national anthems.  No real wrench over who to support because a win for New Zealand (current World Champions) was assumed by all and Scotland is used to ‘glorious defeat’.  Fabulous displays of fast open play.

*set up the Wii I borrowed from my nephew and made it work thanks to some tutorials on YouTube


And looking forward

* rain forecast to start the week – a promise of clear weather on Thursday

* using Just Dance on the Wii instead of my daily walk – question is do I close the blinds when I dance during the day or accept people walking past will be able to see me dance?

* evenings glued to the TV with two strangely compelling reality competitions running nightly at the moment – MasterChef Professional and I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here

* trip to Glasgow on Tuesday to see my nephew and his group’s latest play

* more stuff sorting – it’s all improvement from here now piles have been sorted and just need putting away

oh lucky you watching the Rugby. I don't have a tv here so had to watch the highlights later. I love rugby on a cold winter afternoon!

You never know who you might cheer with your dancing!

Hi Helena ~ I love this post of what you did and what you will be doing! :O) Carrie has Just Dance for her Wii and she loves it. You'll have to let us know how it goes for you.

Oh, I'd be dancing regardless! What a cheek to look in through your window! That's a wonderful autumnal photo ... Hope the Glasgow trip has gone well?
