Walking Is The Best Kindness to Yourself

Kindess is kindness 


Kindness is not a fashion hashtag


People spout on about kindness but don't practise it themselves ,I was once some years ago told I should not be takin pictures when I was off with depression and that people might get the wrong idea when I was out and about in the one air taking pictures . People are so quick to jump on the #BeKind hashtag when say a celebrity sadly dies but they quick enough in another swipe of social media to critisce someone for something else when all someone is trying to do is to protect their mental health .I love my photography and getting out about , the other day with my husband we climbed a mountain ... ok it was a really really big hill but it felt like a mountain and the sense of achievement in climbing it gets back down again without falling down on my bottom was huge. ( PS my bottom is not huge ! ) . I have really got into walking and hiking and nature and the outside are breath therapy partners.


I love the rolling hills , the green and then when it changes with the season it is magical to come back and look , it is truly like an artists picture because you never know what you're going to get.Walking is brilliant for mental health and it is not a hidden secret and anyone can do it even if you need some kind of support.Walking can be free but the costs you can occur can be decent walking shows and walking gear, I have some Mountain Warehouse walking boots and I have already got my money out of them as they've enabled me to go places I previously couldn't go with my old walking boots. The next item I need I think is a new walking coat and of course it would have to be yellow, and no walk is complete without myself wearing a bobble hat!

Being Kind Of Heart Always

I headed into town yesterday for a few bits and bobs from good old Marks and Spencer and whilst just pursuing the chilled items I happened to be spoken to by a old gentleman. He told me about his he could believe the costs of items and how people could afford to feed their children especially with some of the prices of food . He also told me about himself and how he’d been a bricklayer since the age of 16 long before the age of health and safety , he was now 83.

He told me he’d list his wife some years back , Ed exchanged words s d he was happy I think for the warmth of human words . It really doesn’t take much to be kind of heart , kind of hearing and just a good Al round egg .


Bolstered by being good of heart and good of soul , I thought I’d get down to some gold old leaf kicking .

Make Your Own Prawn Chicken Pesto Toast

 I improvised making my own prawn toast , it was relatively quick and easy and I am pretty sure you could embellish it more than I could . I had my mine with pea and ham soup because I am as ever the culinary rebel and they do say rules are there to be broken but having said that Pineapple absolutely does not belong on pizza.



Ingredients 


Now I know you're meant to use egg white but I didn't have any eggs 


I had 


cooked prawns 


ready cooked chicken 


I had no Spring either 


Pesto


Method


Whizz the cooked prawns and cooked chicken pieces together with some pesto about 4 teaspoons of pesto .


Then spread on bread ( I don't cut off the crusts )


Then plonk in the oven for around 10 to 15 minutes at about 180c  . Keep an eye on it.
