Whenever I can, I like to start my day with a walk. I roll out of bed, grab something warm and off I go for about an hour or so. We're so lucky here because a 4 minute walk takes you right out into the countryside. It's such a wonderful way to start the day especially if I'm planning to sit in front of the computer for several hours working on my website (guess what I'm doing today!).
25th April is ANZAC Day (australia and new zealand army corp), a time when NZ closes down out of respect for those who lost theirs lives in past wars. It's a public holiday and so Mr Tread Softly said that he'd quite like to walk with me first thing.
It was one of those mornings (in fact, it has been all week) when the air is fresh and crisp, the grass is dewy and the sky is blue. My most favourite mornings. We walked for an hour and a quarter and during that time passed a fellow walker, a farmer and a herd of cows!
By 8.30 each morning the day has hardly begun and already I've experienced something quite wonderful. What's your favourite way to start your day? I'd love to know.
