We have had a difficult year as my dad's not been too well and it's always very hard to see someone you love struggle. But we are getting t…
I made some muffins the other day and was wondering what flavour to use. Well, I found some tangerines that were needing to be used up. So using a basic muffin recipe I squeezed the juice and added peel into it and also used some of the juice in the icing. Let me tell you they were very tasty, even if I do say so myself.
Karen and I have been going to a yoga class once a week since the beginning of December. I think we are both starting to feel a wee bit more flexible. But let me tell you some of those exercises are just plain hard!!!Take Monday evening for instance, we were doing a couple of slightly more advanced exercises.Picture this - lying on your back with your legs at 45 degree angle, legs crossed then pull slightly on your ankles to pull your legs closer to your body, putting a good old stretch into your old gluteus maximus.
