blogging on the move: V&A Dundee; French pleating; swimming for motivating muscles

Three posts written on my Wordpress blog via mobile device, Galaxy 8, when in Dundee today:

V&A Dundee bonnie views & sock knitting

Sitting with favourite tipple of diet coke iced, in the Dundee V&A, looking out on the silvery blue Tay and road bridge, sock knitting tae hand, chillin! Braw.




French pleating

Since growing my hair I’ve been pleating it for swimming and when on the move, on bike or walking. More recently it’s got long enough for weaving into a French pleat. Last time I did this to my own hair would have been 30yrs ago, 1989 when a returning adult at Lanark Grammar doing Highers in Music and Classical Greek. The year before I’d achieved As in Higher English and Maths.

I’ve practised the hairstyle at home and on the move in buses and trains!




Swimming first thing best for motivating muscles!

Yesterday I tried a different exercise programme, going for a 3 mile walk in Dundee, from South Road to Balgay Hill and down Blackness Road first thing then going to Olympia for a swim. However I struggled doing lengths and later had aching muscles, a sore back, so today went back to the usual: 94 bus to Leuchars then 99 bus to Dundee for a 20-30min swim.

Feel much better, enjoyed swim again and relaxing muscles under hot shower. Very good!

this morning after swim
