Tangerines and a touch of Yoga.

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.  

Ha, first of all I couldn't even cross my legs properly and as for grabbing my ankles - no chance!!
 Some people could actually do it but there was an awful lot of groaning in the room lol.

Suffice to say I had very tender legs the next day.   
I think I will have to do a lot more practicing at home and not just wait for the class!

Sounds like hard work to me Ellie, I think I would have had to go home and make more muffins to get over it.

I would find that move impossible. I never was flexible even as a child...with all the things I did.

BTW, the muffins sound wonderful.
