"Sweet May hath come to love us, flowers Tree, their blossoms don;And through the blue heavens above us the very clouds move on." Heinrich Heine, Book of Songs.'bout time n'all the flippin' clouds moved on! I thought for a mo that spring was going to bypass us altogether.

to see the sunrise (or not) to the sound
of the Morris Dancers bells.
As daylight began to emerge a blanket of clouds obscured the sun and the dawn chorus was literally drowned out by the rain that fell in sheets upon us. We did not let that deter is whatsoever and we took hold of our batons and danced a merry Morris jig, all that was missing was the men in white coats! Thankfully we were not take away and live to tell the tale. Can I persuade anyone to join us next year?
The Alternative Olympic Legacy
I am persisting with my aim of giving away 1000 free tasters this year. I have now reached 123 that leaves me with 877 to do. If you have any ideas or know of any events I can attach myself too do let me know. I really want to achieve this and I am happy to turn up and pitch up a stall to hand out leaflets & give tasters. I have also expanded my offer to giving Free Pilate's Tasters and Free consultations for the Health Programme I run at Pitsea Leisure Centre. You can check the times for these on my website. I am currently having some flyer's and posters printed which should be ready this week. If you would like some to hand out just let me know. You can also send people to my website suehayeshealth.co.uk where anyone can register for any of the tasters or consultations.
My Alternative Olympic Legacy numbers were given a great and well needed boost this week when the Athena and Harlequin Ranger took part in a free taster. This was followed by hot chocolate and smores around a camp fire. If you've never had a smores before then here's the recipe... it's a must try if you want to hit a sugar rush like no other!
|Athena Rangers & Harlequin Ranger |
get into the Nordic Walking Swing
Chocolate Digestive biscuits
Skewer half a dozen 9or more) marshmallows
and hold over a hot fire for 3 seconds
Sandwich skewer between two chocolate digestives and slide out skewer leaving marshmallows between chocolate biscuits.
Eating recommendations for maximum enjoyment of sugar rush
- Take a big bite and let it dissolve in mouth.
- Take large swig of hot chocolate to wash it down.
- Repeat above steps 1 & 2 as many times as you wish until marshmallows and chocolate biscuits have all gone.
Welcome to our four new graduates, Tim and Wendy Morris, Zoe Edney and Julie Webber who have completed their Nordic Walking Technique Course. Tim and Wendy couldn't wait to get started and have been taking part in extra curricular activity by joining us on couple of walks including the Bluebell and Wild Orchid walks taken by the Langdon Hills rangers. Watch out for other events offered by them, I will include the walks in my schedule. It can be really interesting to walk with the Rangers, they have a lot of knowledge about the area and it adds another dimension to our walks. Looking forward to seeing Julie and Zoe soon.
