Bopping the night away
Finally the weather, at least for the moment has cleared. Which meant that I could go out and play!
So last night was the Christmas 'Do' with my work colleagues. A turkey dinner followed by dancing.
A good practise run for my proper dance class 'Do' next weekend.
So I spent almost three hours non stop on the dance floor except for quick top of water levels. Couldn't do either salsa or rock'n'roll no one else knew the steps. But those I will be doing next week. But just happily bopped the night away.
Which I feel pretty proud of,I'm not the oldest at work, but I was the one person consistently on the dance floor. All the other dancers didn't have my stamina. So not bad for an old un! I saw off all the twenty and thirty somethings.
I got the usually reticent but very merry docs dancing much against their better judgement.
And I didn't look bad in my repro vintage rock'n'roll dress with it's piles of petticoats.
Amazingly I didn't get home till 1.30 in the morning, unheard of me who likes being in bed at 10.30.
And this morning my feet are aching a bit, but nothing else.
So lets here it for life disasters making you pick up your life and make it work healthier! Cause I'm fitter now at 56 then a lot of people half my age and certainly fitter than I was when I was half my age!
Roll on next Sunday dancing which will follow a long walk hopefully on the Saturday. Oh and of course three hours dance class on Tuesday. Bring it on!
