“The room door opened, and Mrs Waterbrook, who was a large lady – or who wore a large dress: I don’t exactly know which, for I don’t know which was dress and which was lady – came sailing in.”
David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
I also love a giggle and thought you might like this description.
For a very good reason, I’ve spent the last month and a bit putting my feet up and tenderly allowing my body to rest. Though just over a month, it felt more like 3 months – so much has happened personally, building-wise, at work and French (did I mention that I’m learning French?), I can hardly conceive of it being only about 5 weeks long.
In the words of Vizzini (The Princess Bride): “Inconceivable!”
So, to gym we went so that I don’t need to purchase a large dress. It is pitiful how unfit I have become in such a short time, but I did it. I was told once by a PE teacher that the longest distance is between the sofa and the door. Never a more true word was said.
3Km. 32 minutes. A sore knee. An endorphin filled brain. A good night’s sleep. An almost happy heart. Certainly hopeful.
