"Make hay whilst the sun shines... "โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ Gorgeous walks in the afternoon sun for #rainorshine30 Day 320 & Day 322 - this was at the start - by the end I was all kinds of rosy, sweaty cheeks! ๐Ÿ˜Š
One of the true & unexpected joys of this little #rainorshine30 project has been noticing the seasons. It'd been many years since I'd felt so connected to & so nourished. Such a simple habit with lovely results. โ˜˜๏ธ๐ŸŒปโ˜€๏ธโ›„๏ธ Watching the farmers at work late at night & then seeing the bales in the morning, reminded me again that life too has its seasons, times to sow & reap, beginnings & endings. Keep moving forward, new chapters & adventures ahead. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ›๐Ÿฆ‹๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒป Wishing you a lovely weekend ahead! Jo xx ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒป .

"Keep dreaming, keep believing..." Roger Federer, Wimbledon 2017 ๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿšฒ Bright blue skies, pink roses & the loveliest of bike rides in the warmest of afternoon sunshine for #rainorshine30 Day 318. Birdsong, the hum of harvesting & not a soul in sight. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿšฒ๐ŸŒท Inspiration from Federer, comfy bottom courtesy of @bike_nicks. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I hope you've had a lovely weekend & wish you all the best for the week ahead, Jx ๐Ÿ˜Š

"The more you pay attention to your intuition, the more you'll trust it when it really matters." Megan Hine ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ• Thank you so so much to @megan_hine & @merrelluk for the wonderful #mindofasurvivor prize! ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ˜ŠSwipe for a pic of the book!
I discovered Meg via the fab @livelovefindra (I practically lived in their merino wool jumper & beanie in the winter!) & a super interview with the inspiring @fequalshq. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ• Meg is an explorer, adventurer & the woman responsible for the safety of the teams on many TV wilderness shows with @beargrylls . Her skills & experience are unrivalled, (think lions, mountains, raging rivers) & yet what is so refreshing & interesting is her attitude. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป Confident in her abilities & skills & yet very calm & modest, Meg shares with us her lessons on survival in the wilderness & how that wisdom can help us in the every day world of work & relationships. Empathy, intuition, understanding the role of fear.... ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ’กIt's a really thoughtful & intelligent book and Megan has such an engaging style. It's like sitting round a campfire ๐Ÿ”ฅ quietly listening to her stories & lessons. I would really recommend adding it to your reading wish list! ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ” Thank you so much again! I'm incredibly grateful, Jo xx ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ” .

Here's to those who inspire us & don't even know it..... ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Just catching up with #rainorshine30 Days 311-314 & I wanted to say thank you to Mel @thismumruns, whom I don't know personally, but who inspires me every day with her positive attitude & hugely generous spirit here. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’š If you're in Bristol you'll already know what a star she is, but I discovered her after she won @womensporttrust #beagamechanger award for #inspiringinitiative. My fab friend @alexrotasphotography was at the same awards evening & I made the connection.... ๐Ÿ˜Š

Mel has created this fantastic running community in Bristol, Bath & London which looks an absolute joy with a huge emphasis on friendship & the #headspace running gives. ๐Ÿ˜Š

At the mo, she is injured and yet exudes her passion & has started a walking group in Bristol whilst she recovers. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ It's a joy to follow @thismumruns & whilst I'm hundreds of miles away, her example on IG especially helps me hugely whilst I heal too. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ So thank you Mel - I really appreciate what you do & share. Running rocks & walking does too. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป Wishing you all a fab day, Jo xx ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒฟ #rainorshine30 Days 311-315 - lots of walking, hills, res & @2minutebeachclean (Pics of the gorgeous, sunny riverside walk & #2minutelitterpick on Stories) ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ˜Ž

"Smell the sea & feel the sky, let your soul & spirit fly" Van Morrison ๐Ÿฌ

Just back from today's #rainorshine30 Day 311 - up in the hills rather than the beach today. This from last week's "seal" weekend. ๐Ÿฌ

I love that the sound of the oystercatchers unites the coast & the Dales on our walks. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿš๐Ÿ•Š Wishing you a lovely Sunday of things that nourish your heart & soul, Jo xx ๐Ÿ˜Š

"The hush of early morning, bird song & tree whispers, books & tea..... ๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŒธ" A big weekend for my little family so starting the day with all the things that bring joy & a full heart & fill my 'brave Mum' well ... ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ“š I've just started reading Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly (the book that inspired the film). Has anyone else read it? And then off for a walk to check the waves for a little SUP paddle later. โ˜€๏ธ Hydrangeas are bursting into life everywhere I walk - pinks, blues & violets.... Snapping pics for my Stories... ๐ŸŒธ

Wishing you a wonderful weekend & thank you for the lovely comments about @lickedspoon article y'day. Exciting times for us! Jo xx ๐Ÿ˜Š

PS #rainorshine30 Day 310 yday was grey, rainy & warm.... ducks dancing, lambs munching & a beautiful oystercatcher swooping. Then an incredible sports massage - more on that later X .

"50 Things You Only Know When You Are 50..." ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป I love this final paragraph from a fab article by Debora Robertson @lickedspoon in The Telegraph that I discovered on Twitter. ๐Ÿ—ž๐Ÿ˜Š Food writer, editor & gardener, Debora talks about her apprehension & then joys & revelations of turning 50. It's so accurate that I found myself wondering if she'd overheard some of the conversations with my girlfriends - IRL or texts/What's App messages! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Often tired, always juggling a zillion things, a handbag bursting with To Do lists & Exciting Plans For The Future..... it describes so many women I know. ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“ I love the research on creative thinking & of course, including the wonderful Nora Ephron.... ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“ฝ It's a joy to read & recognise you are not alone & judging by the comments on Twitter, I think so many others felt the same. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ I do recommend googling it & thank you to the lovely @_hotflush for sharing the link. ๐Ÿ’›

Does anyone else recognise themselves? ๐Ÿ’ก ๐Ÿ˜Š

Wishing you a fab Friday & weekend ahead, thank you for your inspiring & encouraging company this week, Jo x ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’š Ps #rainorshine30 Day 309 was a gorgeous walk up in the hills. A quick @2minutebeachclean #2minutelitterpick - mainly near the car parky bit ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿš•but close enough to lots of sheep it could've been v damaging. A surprising number of elastic bands oddly ๐Ÿค”.

"Into the forest I go, to lose my mind & follow my soul..." ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ€๐ŸŒณ The fields & lanes are just so lush & green at the mo. The days have started a tad grey but there was such a warm & breezy sunshine during yesterday's late afternoon #rainorshine30 Day 308. Truly life affirming. ๐ŸŒฟ(pics of the roses, daisies & buttercups on Stories ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ) Wishing you a fab day & thank you for your kind comments on my last laughterlines post, Jo x ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’š Ps I don't see that much litter on my walks thankfully, but do see some. So I'm going to make sure I always have a bag for a @2minutebeachclean #2minutelitterpick & will post pics on my Stories. All the bending will be good for me! Every little helps given the sheep & cows in the fields and I'm not sure crisp packets are good for them. ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฎ

"Wrinkles only go where smiles have been" Jimmy Buffet ๐Ÿ˜Š

Catching up with #rainorshine30 Days 304-306 - paddleboarding in the sun, walking by the river late in the evening sunshine & today's drizzly grey rain. โ˜€๏ธโ˜”๏ธ๐ŸŒŠ I sometimes pause & look at the wrinkles round my eyes before posting, thinking maybe a different picture would be more flattering, especially as I am usually a little bedraggled by the sea or wind! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

And then I remember the joy & laughter that created these wrinkles & post anyway. I'm a WIP on this but small steps every day. ๐Ÿ˜Š I'm with @apluckyheroine & her post about #keepingitreal ๐Ÿ’™. On the topic of joy & stand up paddleboarding, a couple of people have asked where they might take lessons in London. Two lovely ladies I would absolutely recommend following are @kikomatthews & @anualadin. Their SUP knowledge & joy shines through in every pic on IG. Kiko is preparing to solo row the Atlantic as well as teach SUP! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃโ€โ™€๏ธ I hope you've had a lovely Tuesday & happy #4thofjuly! Jx ๐Ÿ˜Š

Oh my gosh, it's barely 10am & I'm sitting with a mug of tea wondering if I did the right thing for this little seal pup. My heart is literally pounding..... ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿš I was taking a happy early morning walk, seaglass hunt & @2minutebeachclean in the sunshine when I spotted this pup. Clearly injured & looking very forlorn. โ˜น๏ธ It was covered in flies, poorly eyes full of gunge & one of its flippers looked damaged. ๐Ÿค•๐Ÿค’ I went back along the beach (no reception) & googled seal rescue & spoke to a lovely lady at the British Divers Marine Life Rescue. She said to go back & sit nearby & keep dogs/people away if poss so it didn't get into distress. ๐Ÿ’™She would send some Marine Medics to attend asap. ๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿš‘ I did so & sat a few feet away & sort of chatted to it & said everything was going to be ok. (Yes, I know - a little bit weird as I don't speak seal!). ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Anyway, as the tide came in, having moved itself up the beach previously, it turned round and headed out to sea. Maybe to get away from my chatter?! ๐Ÿ™„I watched for a while and saw its head bobbing up & down & then gone. ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐ŸŒŠ I really don't know how it will swim & I'm currently reading the BDMLR website so I'm more informed for the future. They are on Twitter & FB & have a useful video clip with info on seals & dolphins too. ๐Ÿฌ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿš If you go to beaches often it's handy to know. ๐Ÿ’™

I took some pics close up as it had a paint marking & I wondered if it was part of a survey? I wouldn't have got so close otherwise so I didn't panic it. ๐Ÿ’—

It's not quite how I expected I'd cover my 10,000 steps today & I'm not entirely sure I was any use. But I have the number in my phone now for the future & I think it's flippin' awesome that there are people on standby ready to look after our coastlines & marine life this way. Cheers for the British Divers Marine Life Rescue! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿฌ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿš๐Ÿš‘ Have a lovely day, fingers crossed this little lovely gets better soon. Jx ๐Ÿ˜Š

The sun is up, the sky is blue, it's beautiful & so are you..... โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ’™ It's a blue skies & gentle breeze kind of morning here. Time to pump up the SUP & go for a paddle later. But first breakfast.... ๐Ÿ’š

In true Blue Peter style, here's one I made earlier.... I'm using spelt flour now in the bread & I think it's even nicer than rye. ๐Ÿ’›

Wishing you a lovely Sunday (or possibly Tuesday evening depending on IG weird TL at the mo!) from a sunny little corner of Yorkshire xx ๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜€๏ธ Ps thank you for your kind comments on the bodyboarding yday. It was all rather tentative but a joy to start again. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Ps I'll pop pumping up the #paddleboard on my Stories as I'm often asked how it works. It's great for the arms! X .

"The cure for anything is salt water. Sweat, tears or the sea"
Izak Dinesen ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒŠ First time back on my bodyboard & tentatively riding the gorgeous waves for #rainorshine30 Day 303. ๐Ÿ˜ŠThe saltwater on my shoulder was just so wonderful. Chillier than anticipated but so good. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ’™ After about 45 mins (which flashed by) & with a fair amount of the North Sea up my nose, I spent a few minutes walking through the waves for my knee. ๐Ÿ’›

A little @2minutebeachclean - the board is handy to carry it - and now warming up on my 4th mug of tea. โ˜•๏ธโ˜•๏ธ (Some lovely pics of the sea & what I picked up on my Instastories) ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒŠ I hope you're having a wonderful weekend & wishing health & happiness for July! Jx ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’™
