Walk this Way

After numerous late nights finishing the latest draft of the novel and a brief holiday, it's time to get back into the swing of things. I've missed my daily desk-walking and this Walk Your Waist Off article in the Telegraph has made me anxious to begin again.

In the article, Joanna Hall claims that daily walking (with the correct posture) improves balance, cardiovascular health and stamina, toning bodies and dropping inches without dieting and back-breaking sit-ups. Sounds good, especially after the amount of ice cream I ingested on holiday.

I've set myself the challenge of walking for 2 hours a day during the school holidays. Not only will it mean that I get some exercise, it will also encourage me to get on with my pile of holiday reading which is probably best done indoors, with a pencil and notebook to hand as I prepare for the theoretical part of my PhD.

'The Friday Gospels' paperback launch

I'm really looking forward to Jenn Ashworth's paperback launch of The Friday Gospels tomorrow evening at Ebb and Flo Bookshop, 7 p.m. I'll be reading from Sweet Home and there will be cake (hopefully the icing won't melt!).
