happy with myself today

my patio needed power washing, i usually ask some one to do it for me once a year ,today i thought get off your backside and do it yourself, it took me from 9 this morning until 2.30 this afternoon (plenty of rest in between washing).when i could do it, it took me an hour and a half.but i feel quite pleased with myself now that its done i`m pretty bushed now ,it will be an early night to bed i think

Well done, I find one of the biggest drawbacks is raising the commitment level to say , Yes I CAN DO THAT,

Last week I managed to mow the lawns, took about 5 hours, used to be 1 hour, then follows the self satisfaction of thinking, I can still do things.

Well done.

I do my own postage stamp lawn as long as I have my garden chair close by to get my breath back and it is not raining I will get it done. Time is not my issue.

Be Well

Well done, psyching myself up to do ours, might have a go now.

Read your tweet first thing. Great and it has motivated me. I realised that I had become very lazy using my COPD as an excuse. I have started on my patio - it was disgusting - so will take some time but thanks to you I have at least started. It is too easy to put things off. Thanks again.

Well done on another score Whit. Look how many people you have encouraged to be more active and have a go. Me i'm off to try and dig and weed some very neglected flower beds. xx

Let's all have a "I've done a bit more weekend" I'm off to Telford to pick up a table, then it is plant spuds time and the lawn wants doing again. Hope for a dry weekend
