Gratitude 5 : Newlands Park

Had a walk in a lovely park the other day. In Glasgow’s south-side.
Its called Newlands Park and is a lovely smallish park. With lots of interesting areas and plenty benches to sit on. It was quiet with just a few people walking their dogs.
It was just heaven – breathing in the fresh air, enjoying all the greenery and some flowers out, and listening to the birds tweeting.
Just heaven.
I need more of this for sure . . . .

Grareful to have such a nice park close to home.

A Good Weekend

Well this weekend was good.

Not that I did anything mega exciting but it was the 1st time I had been out then house properly during the daytime for 3 weeks !!  Did some walking and got fresh air.
3 weeks – how does this happen you may ask ?
Well in CFS or ME land it is unfortunately all too common at times. And the last few weeks have been a bit difficult.
But won’t dwell on that now.

My husband came to take me out both days and did all the driving around.

We did some perhaps dull things like go to B & Q, and shops etc – but even this I enjoyed (up to a point. . . ) as I was glad to get out.

Today was the best of the 2 days.

We had a nice long, slow, peaceful walk thru Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow’s West End – and even around some of the streets in what is called the Park Area just into the West End.
It is full of the type of properties I love – old traditional houses and flats from victorian times.  All so distinctive – the lovely detail in the buildings and the big windows. I find it relaxing just looking at them.
Then we found a cafe within the park and had a nice coffee and a break.
We did other things too but the time in the park I found the most rejuvenating – physically and mentally.

Its now evening and I’m a bit tired.
But its more like a natural tiredness – rather than that awful CFS/ME tiredness which really is beyond description.
Hubby is still here – and we’re just going to settle down and watch some TV now.
And will have a nice glass of chilled pinot grigio wine.
