It took me nearly two hours to put our new exercise bike together! Thank goodness Ross didn’t do it – he really doesn’t have the patience for stuff like this! Even then, I had to ring customer services as it is not at all clear from the instructions how you plug it in. Reebok said that they get a lot of calls like this. I suggested that may be this was telling them something.

At the end of December we bought a couple of Groupon vouchers to go to the cinema and they run out on 1st February. We hadn’t got round to seeing The Hobbit – and were a bit reluctant to see it after what we heard – but we are a Lord of the Rings family and this had to be done! Despite the fact that it is a bit long-winded, we all loved it.

I have to admit to shedding a tear as Ross and I watched Grace getting enrolled as a Brownie on Tuesday. They had the toadstool and the mirror and the owl. They still do the ‘twist me and turn me’ rhyme and I was so proud of her because she learned the promise off by heart. She is now looking at all the badges she would like to go for!

Since moving to Somerset I have not set foot inside a gym. Thanks to the Epson Pulsense which I am reviewing, I have been given 2 months free membership and I started on Wednesday with a body pump class. My goodness it was hard! But I have to admit that it did make me feel good.

Grace has recently started getting a bit clingy towards me. I believe that this is down to the events just before Christmas – and, of course, I couldn’t explain to her exactly what was wrong with me. I found this really hard because I have always been honest with her. She has also gone back to playing with her dolls and when I went in to her room to put some washing away, I found this. It is SO lovely and just shows how caring my little girl is.

I have just about finished my current read so the next in my row of unread books on my shelf came out and onto my bedside table. I think most bloggers will recognise this one and I was really pleased to have won it in a giveaway on Coombemill just before Christmas.

Today I have spent much of the day playing with the manual settings on the DSLR that I received for Christmas from Ross. One thing that I am really impressed with is the fact that Canon have a brilliant app for my very camera model with loads of great tutorials and exercises. This afternoon I spent lots of time practising and this is one of my favourites. I will be putting another on my Silent Sunday tomorrow.
